If you're interested in adopting a dog from us, we'll ask you to fill out an adoption application. This gives us a chance to find out a little bit about you and to make sure the dog you are interested in will be a good match for your family and lifestyle.
If it looks like a good match, we will set up a time to come to your house for a home inspection. This allows us to make sure your home will be a safe, secure place for the dog... and it gives you a chance to see how the dog will interact with other pets and members of your family. Because of this policy, adoptions are generally restricted to the Los Angeles area and, in some cases, to other parts of Southern Califonia only. (We do occasionally make exceptions for "the perfect match", but the home must still be within reasonable driving distance).
Our adoption fees range from $150 to $300 for non-puppy mill dogs and from $300 to $500 for puppy mill dogs. Our puppy mill dogs are costing us thousands of dollars because they were never treated medically, so we must charge more for them. This is a tax-deductible donation to our organization, and it goes towards the rescue, rehabilitation and care and long term stay of other dogs in the program. The fee is non-refundable. All of the dogs are spayed or neutered, vaccinated, microchipped, and given a veterinary check-up and grooming before they are placed in new homes.
Please Note: Our adoption application is very thorough and takes several minutes to complete. Please read the following Adoption Procedures before you fill it out.
Please contact us to get a copy of our adoption procedures and application at (661) 713-5240 or email us at firstname.lastname@example.org and we can fax, email, or mail one to you. Fax the completed form to us at (661) 554-0220.
The Brittany Foundation is a nonprofit 501(c)(3) charity dedicated to the rescue, rehabilitation, care and placement of homeless dogs.
The dogs are shown at our weekly adoption program at our sanctuary in Agua Dulce. Please check our schedule for adoption events. While in our care, the dogs are spayed or neutered, vaccinated, and given a thorough check-up along with any necessary medical attention. Our dogs are also microchipped. If dogs are not adopted, they will live at the sanctuary for their entire life. We run a no-kill facility.
We rescue all dogs, regardless of breed, and we often focus our efforts on the harder-to-place dogs such as seniors, disabled or abused dogs, and "media condemned" breeds such as Pit Bulls, Chow Chows, & Dobies. It's relatively easy to find a home for a cute little Chihuahua, but the gratification for us comes from placing the 6-year-old Pit Bull with one eye, the stray mutt who has never had a home before, or the 12-year-old Doberman with severe separation anxiety (who is now living in a wonderful home of his own). Of late, we are rescuing more puppy mill dogs and victims of foreclosure. Of course, we also have the adorable, easy, well-behaved angels who are still searching for their forever homes too.
Our sanctuary is located in the lovely ranch community of Agua Dulce, California in the Santa Clarita Valley. Please contact us for our available visiting hours at email@example.com or call us a t (661) 713-5240. We look forward to meeting you.
