Adoptable Pets

Each dog has been spayed or neutered, vaccinated, received tick/flea medication, and has been dewormed while fostered and nurtured in a family home. 

 **Adoptables too small to be fixed are on a "foster to adopt" contract; and only available for adoption in the Fresno area. Once fixed by our vet, they are ready for a formal adoption.
