this month's dog adoption results

San Diego Dog Adoption | Rock Church | Second Chance Dog Rescue This past weekend, The Rock Church Dog Lovers Ministry put on two adoption events—one in Point Loma, one in North County—in an attempt to get as many animals out of the shelter as possible before Christmas. We're happy to share that 21 dogs were adopted, clearing out an entire section at the Chula Vista Animal Facility!

If you're still looking for a great pet, there are PLENTY more in need of a home! We spent the afternoon with dogs like Fidel (above) and Noah (below), two little guys that love nothing more than being fed treats or taken for a walk. Noah really caught our attention when he showed us he could sit, shake, and lay down. Every time I took out a treat I'd feel his little scruffy paw land on my leg. He's just the cutest!

Noah | Second Chance Dog Rescue

Fidel and Noah are currently being fostered by Second Chance Animal Rescue. More info about them below!

Noah is a happy 2 year old Schnauzer Terrier mix that is about 20 lb. What a loving, shy, and sweet terrier guy!  He will put his head on your lap and become your best bud when he realizes you love him. Noah loves to talk to you when you show him affection and loves playing ball. He is that kind of scruffy and special dog that crawls into your heart and never leaves. He enjoys sitting at your feet, curled up next to you and feeling safe.  Noah gets along with other dogs and would be best in an home with adults.  He is such a wonderful gentleman who will reward your kindness with warmth and gratitude.

Noah is neutered, microchipped and up to date on his vaccinations.  His adoption fee is $200.

Fidel is a 1 year old Terrier mix that weighs 12 lbs.  Fidel is a great dog and gets along great with other dogs.  He is a young pup and has a lot of energy.  He is friendly with all people and kids.  He likes his play time but also enjoys cuddling or sitting on your lap.  Fidel will bark at other dogs at first but warms up quickly.  He is not completely house trained but he is working on it. This cutie would be a great addition to any family.

Fidel's adoption fee is $175.00 - he is neutered, microchipped and up to date on his vaccinations. 

Please go to our website, www.secondchancedogrescue.org to complete an application to meet the dogs! Or, if you're interested in volunteering with us, check out the Dog Lovers Ministry!

16 dogs adopted at The Rock

The Rock Dog Adoption GREAT NEWS...16 dogs were adopted at The Rock dog adoption event this past Sunday! We are SO happy for all of the wonderful dogs that found loving homes, and grateful for the people who gave them a chance.

The number of church attendees who signed up to either volunteer at future adoptions OR foster a shelter dog was incredible. The fact that we had to scramble to find people pens and answer people's questions was an inspiring way to end a crazy weekend. :)

For more info about The Dog Lovers Ministry, click HERE! We post dog-related volunteer opportunities on a regular basis, so be sure to check back at the beginning of each month for more info.

big loveable dog available for adoption

Hi, I'm Grizzly. I'm a big, loveable guy looking for a great family! I love nothing more than getting pet and sharing your food. I am very friendly with people AND dogs, and though I'm still learning some basic commands, I can sit and stay and will follow you all around the house. (If you ignore me, I'll just lay next to you and take a nap.) Please don't be afraid of my size or breed...it hurts my feelings when people are scared of me because all I want is to be their friend.

Come visit me tomorrow at The Rock from 9am to 2pm! I am available for adoption but if you can't keep me forever, perhaps you can offer me a temporary foster home. I don't like the shelter and I'd like to move out as soon as possible.

The Rock Church is located in Point Loma, CA. Click here to find it on a map.

I'll lay down anywhere you're willing to pet me...even on the stairs.

Look at my huge head! Isn't it THE BEST?!

I'm wagging my tail here because someone is bribing me to stay still with a treat.

Details about ME, Grizzly:

  • People say I'm a pit bull/American bulldog mix.
  • I am 3 years old and I weigh 90 lbs.
  • My ideal home would have have kids 10 and older.
  • I am from the Chula Vista Animal Shelter.
  • If you'd like to meet me, please come to The Rock tomorrow (Sunday, Jan. 22) OR email Akula Kreative to get in contact with the right people.

CAN YOU PLEEEEEEASE HELP FIND ME A HOME???
