APET Rescue strives to find wonderful forever homes for every animal that enters our facility. We are a private, non-profit (501(c)3) limited-intake shelter, located on Edwards AFB. APET is newly re-orienting (2022) to put animal welfare first, above adoption counts or any other bench marks. All pets who enter our care are ensured attentive care and love for as long as it takes to find the RIGHT home for that pet.
Note: we are currently arranging all meet-and-greet/adoption counseling appointments in advance. Please reach out to set up a time!
If you do NOT have access to Edwards AFB, additional accommodations/planning steps will be needed.
To fill out an adoption application, please visit our main profiles on Petstablished/Wagtopia (link listed below).
Once the application is submitted, the Adoption Committee will review your responses and contact you within 2-3 days, at most. This follow-up may include an immediate approval, denial, or additional clarifications.
Once the written application is approved, we require a home-check (virtual/photos or live walk-through).
If the application and home check are all approved, we will work with you to set an adoption appointment! There is an automatic two-week trial period to ensure the adoption is a good match, before everything finalizes.
**Please note, adoption matches are approved for BEST fit with each animal, not necessarily the first application to come in. If you are not approved, you may always ask for a reason, but please respect our decision that puts the animal first.
