Welcome to

Adopt Don't Shop Rescue!

Adopt Don't Shop Rescue takes in unwanted pets from high-kill shelters in California and Mexico, who have no chance at surviving without our help. 
We not only strive to save these pets' lives by bringing them back to good health and placing them in loving homes, but we strive to help educate the community on responsible pet ownership to keep pets in their current homes and out of shelters.


Adopt Don't Shop Rescue is a volunteer based

non-profit organization.

With your help, we can help  save homeless dog's lives.
