Steps to Adoption
1. Meet at Adoption Event
You can meet our available dogs and puppies on SUNDAY at our weekly adoption events. If you are interested in a dog or puppy, we HIGHLY RECOMMEND BRINGING EVERYONE in your household including spouse, children, current dog(s), and any relatives that may live with you. This is important to determine compatibility.
2. Submit Application
Submit your application at the event if you are interested in adopting a rescued dog or puppy.
3. Selection/Home Check/Contract & Payment
Home checks are conducted. Home checks are made to ensure the safety and security of the home, as well as go over details about the rescued animal and their records with you and answer any questions you might have. Upon an approved home check, an adoption contract is signed, donation collected….and you can begin enjoying your new pet!
IF SELECTED AS A MATCH WE WILL CALL YOU.
Please Note: We do NOT call all applicants – we ONLY call those selected as a match.
WE ACCEPT APPLICATIONS FROM 11 – 4 PM on SUNDAY.
All applications are reviewed after the event is over.
Our goal is to place each animal in the home best suited for the animal’s individual temperament and needs. If you are not selected, it does not mean your application was denied – it simply means your home was not the right or best fit for the animal that you applied for.
PETCO NEWPORT BEACH
Once you get a chance to interact with the rescued dogs you may fill out an adoption application if desired. We will have applications available at the event. Adoptions are NOT on a first come, first serve basis so please feel free to come anytime between 12 – 3 PM. The dogs will be there the entire time and do not go home the same day. We require home checks on all our dogs. We try to match our dogs with homes based on their individual personality and needs – with the goal of having their new home be forever.
