ADOPT A DOG

When you adopt a dog, you save a life.

Please have a look at all the amazing dogs we have for adoption in our centers and our foster program. If you would like more information on a pet found here please fill out an adoption application (filling this out does not secure an adoption) and a member of our adoption team will reach out. Be sure to include the pet’s name and ID# in the subject line. In the email please include your phone number and email address and someone will contact you as soon as possible. (Please allow 24 hours for return contact)

Take a look at our SAPA! Urgents and Adoptables Facebook page for dogs in immediate need of foster or adoption.

To see what each adoption requires and includes, please visit our Adopt page.

Adoption Application Disclaimer:  Filling out the adoption application does NOT guarantee a hold or confirmation of adoption on the pet you applied for.  All applications are reviewed and must be accepted by our trained counselors before a pet is adopted.  Please allow 24-48 hours for our adoption team to contact you in regards to your application.

Contrary to what you might think, Layla is not half bear half wolf, although when she gets excited she does like to give out a ladylike little howl. The only time she might seem a bit bear-ish is when someone tries to take away her rawhide bone, those manners need some work! Otherwise, Layla is a polite older girl, who is potty-trained, walks well on a leash, knows how to sit, and loves to shake hands (especially when she spies some food she wants). She loves kids, but would probably do best in a house with children who are old enough to understand her need for some space and gentleness. She doesn't seem to mind other dogs as long as they follow the not-in-her-face rule. Layla hasn't been observed around cats, but likely wouldn't have the energy to chase them. Layla is what they call geriatric, and her body fits that description, however, her spirit is younger than her ten years! She does have some health needs including joint pain, a heart murmur, and poor hearing and eyesight, as well as undergoing treatment for heartworms, but she still has so much life left in her! She loves riding in the car, and gets very excited for her brief walks. If you are looking for a quiet couch potato to be your giant teddy bear, we hope you will give this precious girl a chance!
