adopt a pet?
Each year, 2.7 million adoptable dogs and cats are euthanized in the United States, simply because too many pets come into shelters and too few people consider adoption when looking for a pet. The number of euthanized animals could be reduced dramatically if more people adopted pets instead of buying them.

It is the policy of Desert Paws Rescue that all potential animal adopters complete the Adoption Consultation Form and an interview with an Adoption Coordinator in order to be considered as a forever home for our animals. Desert Paws Rescue will determine the best home for each animal based on the application process and interview. After review of the adoption consultation form and the completion of the interview with the Adoption Coordinator, Desert Paws Rescue may recommend a different animal that is more suitable to your household. Completion of the application and interview process does not guarantee an approval or guarantee the adoption of a particular animal. Desert Paws Rescue is a privately run, non-profit organization and reserves the right to refuse any adoption that is not in the best interest of the animal based on our policies and standards.
