You can meet most of the dogs you see on our website at our Adoption Center. Please call or email Monday - Thursday to make a request. Please provide your name, phone number which dog(s) you'd like to meet and which day you'd be available, Saturday or Sunday. This allows us to prepare to transport them from the kennel in Santa Paula to the Adoption Center at Ventura Pet Barn. This will also give us time to contact the foster if the dog should be in a foster home. You'll be able to meet one-on-one with an adoption counselor to discuss dogs of interest, find out their strengths and discuss any challenges that may exist. When a dog and a family are matched well, there are no challenges that can't be overcome. Be prepared to spend some time at the Adoption Center to get to know the dogs that interest you, and make sure to bring all family members to the initial meet and greet, as well. Adopting a dog can be one of the most rewarding and joyful gifts, and our adoption counselors are here to help you make the right choice.
