There are great people and there are great pets,

but not every home is a great for every pet.

Our goal is to find homes that meet the individual needs of our rescued pets.

Interested in Adopting ?

  1. Our adoption process starts with completion of our adoption application. You can complete and submit online (preferred) or download and FAX to 888-878-0484
  2. After review of your application, we will arrange to introduce our Dirty Dog to you. Usually we will meet at our local adoption events - Typically we are at 2515 Main Street in Santa Monica on Sundays from 10 - 2. Sometimes we can arrange for private meetings as well.
  3. After a successful meeting, we complete a home check and introduce the Dirty Dog to any pets and all human members of the adopting family.
  4. Adoption is completed with the final paperwork and payment of an adoption fee.

As we usually receive multiple inquiries for each Dirty Dog, completion of application and home visits does not guarantee placement

Interested in fostering?


We always need volunteers to help, especially in the foster care area. Dirty Dog Squad is currently seeking caring individuals to care for our rescued dogs and puppies. Initially, pets rescued from the shelter are isolated pets until we are confident they are healthy. Boarding in isolation at a veterinary office is difficult to secure and costs hundreds of dollars per week per dog. This becomes our greatest financial and logistical burden. Once we have determined they are healthy, we prefer to have our new pets live with a family, with or without their own pets, until they find their forever home.

Please contact us if you are able to provide temporary housing for these dogs in need until they can be placed at in a home or doggie-daycare environment.
