**ATTENTION: WE HAVE COVID-ADAPTED POLICIES IN PLACE***
Thank you for your interest in adoption!
Our rescue has adapted adoptions for social distancing and Covid19 precautions.
Everything is done electronically and we are only allowing pre-approved adopters to schedule brief pick up appointments.
We are a small rescue with animals in foster care all over Sonoma County so we cannot accommodate meet and greets at this time.
If you are interested in one of our dogs, please submit a COMPLETE application as well as HOME AND YARD PHOTOS as that is what we prioritize. Because we have had a huge increase in adoption interest, if you just send us inquiry questions without following our steps, chances are we will not have time to get back to you.
Thank you for understanding.
About Soft Paws:
Soft Paws Rescue focuses on connecting homeless, stray, and abused pets with their perfect forever home.
We take in dogs from kill lists at various shelters, as well as surrenders from owners who can no longer care for their pet.
Our goal is to fit each pet with the perfect foster home until they find their permanent home.
We have Nonprofit Tax Exempt Status,
as an established 501c3 organization.
