Now Offering a Limited Number of Dogs for Adoption

Posted in Day-to-day at 1:44 am by ACR&S

Although up to this point we have specialized in small animals such as guinea pigs and rabbits, ACR&S was incorporated first and foremost to assist other organizations in their various missions to help homeless animals.

Due to several recent rescue shutdowns, we have been approached by dedicated individuals, most of whom have years of leadership experience in rescue, but whose expertise is primarily with dogs. ACR&S is now working with them to help them rescue and place a very limited number of dogs under the ACR&S umbrella.

These dogs are almost exclusively 11th hour shelter pulls, and we expect to offer less than five dogs at a time depending on the working burden to each foster parent. The ACR&S Dog Team will continue to provide the exeptional rescue experience for which ACR&S has become known: extensive pre-adoption health care, screening of adopters according to strict adoption criteria, lifetime post-adoption education and mentoring, and a lifetime return policy/Sanctuary option for adopted animals. You can view our current list of adoptable dogs and access the dog adoption application here. For more information on the policies and procedures of the Dog Team, or for information on becoming a Dog Team foster home, please email dogs@allcreaturesrescue.org.

ACR&S still do NOT take owner surrenders of dogs, nor are we able to assist with shelter dog pulls on a large scale, although we will be happy to refer you to local dog-specific rescues who can be of more assistance with these matters.


Currently we have two adoptable dogs, both rescues from the Orange County SPCA:

Chewy is a 6-year-old long haired dachshund. He is a sweet boy who is still a little confused from all of the change that has happened in his life this week, but is adjusting well and loves to give kisses. He gets along well with other dogs, but has never been around children, and would therefore most likely do best in an adult-only home. He appears to have some stiffness in his back hips/legs when it’s chilly outside and will likely have a touch of arthritis in the future. He may eventually need a maintenance arthritis medication as he gets older. Chewy is neutered, fully vaccinated and microchipped.

Kaley is a 4-year-old sweetie who appears to be a mix between a small terrier and either a Lhasa or a Shih Tzu. She came into the shelter looking like a skeleton, missing tons of hair, and with badly irritated skin. From first glance, she appeared to be extremely old, but a health exam showed her to be only around 4 years of age, and the cause of her appearance was simply starvation and severe neglect.

Despite obviously having quite a rough start to life, this poor little thing is as friendly as can be and is gaining weight and personality by the day. She is not yet spayed, but will be before adoption. We are waiting until she has gained enough weight to undergo the surgery safely. We are, however, taking applications immediately.

If you would like to adopt either Chewie or Kaley, please fill out our online application form found here.
