Adoption Information

We take pride in thoroughly taking care of our dogs!

From the time your dog enters our facility until you take him or her home, we take care of them like they are our own, and they are! Our great volunteers keep their kennels clean, multiple times each day. They get out to play in our large outdoor yards, and they get to go on walks every day! Some even go through training and get titled as AKC Canine Good Citizens!

When you adopt a dog from us she/he will:

  • Be Spayed or Neutered
  • Be up to date on all vaccines including rabies
  • Have been regularly de-wormed
  • Have tested negative for Heartworms.
  • Have been microchipped and registered with Found Animals.
  • Receive Frontline treatments for fleas as necessary
  • And they receive any veterinary care, including surgeries, that they need

Puppy Adoptions

When you adopt a puppy from us she/he will have been raised in a home environment with one of puppy foster families. They will have been socialized to people and children, often other dogs, maybe cats. Before going home all of our puppies will:

Have at least their first two puppy shots for parvo and distemper as well as other common illnesses.

Be wormed if appropriate

Had a health check at 6-8 weeks with our veterinarians at the Ashland Animal Medical Hospital

At 5- 6 months we will ensure through our veterinarians that they receive:

  • All their adult vaccines including rabies
  • Dewormed if necessary
  • Tested for Heartworms.
  • Receive a microchip and be registered with Found Animals
  • And they will be spayed or neutered by our veterinarian or the adopting family provides Rescue Ranch with proof of spay neuter from their own veterinarian.

Adoption Process

Come visit our shelter and meet the dogs!
Whether you have found one online that you are interested in, or just want to come visit them all to see who tugs at your heartstrings!

Once you have found that special dog, you will:

  • Fill out Dog Adoption Application On Line version OR (call (530) 842-0829 for print or email version).
  • Since we think of these dogs as our own pets, we have a policy to make sure our dogs are going to a safe home, one of our representatives will do a home visit. If out of the Siskiyou County area we can easily make other arrangements.
  • Our adoption donation is $195.00.
  • We are always available by phone or schedule a time with us for you and your dog if you have special training needs or follow-up questions about starting your life with your new family member. Our goal is to help families learn to communicate and develop life-long bonds with their dogs.

Puppy adoptions are similar to our dog adoptions however they require a 6-month commitment between the adopting family and Rescue Ranch. We strive for the very best care of our puppies and starting them off right with the best of health care is important. We also require that all of our puppies are spayed or neutered at 6 months of age. The $295.00 adoption donation for our puppies reflects our commitment to our puppies and to the adopting families. Every puppy will receive all of their puppy shots, wormed as necessary and a health check at 8-10 weeks. After they have been adopted we will contact you when they are about 6 months of age to arrange their follow-up medical needs. At that time they will receive a rabies shot, be heartworm tested, microchipped, and we will arrange a spay/neuter with our vet.
