About Our Group

Pick of the Pound, Inc. is a non-profit 501(c)(3) organization. We are a dedicated group of volunteers doing what we can to help the homeless animals of Valencia County. Our special emphasis is on helping the animals at the Valencia County Animal Shelter.

Because of the low adoption rate at the Valencia County Animal Shelter, Pick of the Pound, Inc. was formed to help find homes for many of the wonderful animals at the shelter.

Working with shelter personnel, we take animals out of the shelter and place them in foster homes. The animals are tested for heartworm or feline leukemia, vaccinated, spayed or neutered and then put up for adoption.

Our efforts started in September 2000. In only five and a half years we have found loving homes for over 1600 animals!



Adopting a Perfect Pet




You will fill out an adoption questionnaire to help us find the right pet for you and your family. Once a match is made the adoption contract will be filled out and signed.


The adoption fee for dogs and puppies is $100.00. Dogs and puppies are spayed or neutered, microchipped, recieve age appropriate vaccinations and adult dogs are tested for heartworm.

The adoption fee for kittens is $80.00 and $65.00 for cats. Cats and kittens are spayed or neutered, recieve age appropriate vaccinations and are tested for feline leukemia.
