Dog rescue and adoption in California

Dog Rescue and Adoption in California

Since we entered the ring in 2011, the DogTrekker founders have dedicated revenue, editorial and promotional support to California shelters, rescue organizations and animal welfare groups.

It’s all part of our Leave No Dog Behind mission, which puts pets first—whether we’re helping our readers to plan unforgettable DogCations or building a better world for our furry friends and rescue partners.

  • The ASPCA estimates that while declining, there are still over three million dogs who enter U.S. animal shelters per year and of those, approximately 2/3 of a million dogs are euthanized.
  • Approximately 85% of DogTrekker family members donate to animal welfare organizations and a third volunteer at shelters or foster rescues.
  • Over 100,000 readers will add a dog to their family in 2020.
What you can do:
  • Search our rescue database by selecting a breed, region or rescue organization below and volunteer and donate.
  • Read archived stories about California rescues on the left column and again, volunteer and donate.
  • Sign up for the DogTrekker weekly newsletter where we offer a rescue story and adoptable dog or dogs.
Thanks for caring! Roxanne & Dave Kendrick, Co-founders,

Seeking a true companion for your life's adventures? Look no further than Skrillex here, a handsome 4-year-old Lab/Patterdale terrier mix currently enjoying the hospitality of Haven Humane Society in Redding. He's a lively, active fellow who likes to play hard (may be a bit too much for littler humans), chase balls, go for walks, and spend quality time with his person. He's easy to train, quick to learn, and eager to please, as he loves attention and wants to be with you. More...
