Dogs and Cats are being killed every day in CA. Why go to a breeder, when you can save the life of a dog or cat by adopting one???

All rescues Rescue dogs are placed in foster homes until permanent, loving homes are found. The animals are vaccinated, spayed or neutered, microchipped, and given any necessary medical treatment during this time period.

If you see a rescue dog or cat that you are interested in adopting, either at Petfinder/Tehachapi or at (THS online Adoption Gallery), the process is as follows:

Step 1: The Application

Each prospective owner fills out an adoption application. Contact us at (661) 823-0699 and we will send you the application.

Step 2: The Meeting

Once your application is approved, an appointment can be made to meet the rescue animal. At the appointment, an adoption volunteer from the Tehachapi Humane Society will help you assess whether the rescue animal is a good match for your lifestyle and your family. The volunteer can also answer any questions you may have about the adoption process.

Step 3: The Adoption

Before you bring your new dog home, you must sign a contractual agreement with the Tehachapi Humane Society. In addition, a adoption fee is requested.
