Become a Rescue Partner

adopt_teaser.jpgJoin Us In Lifesaving Collaboration

Our goals are the same:  to find quality homes for the animals in our care. We value our Rescue Partners and are committed to working with local rescues to inspire and engage the community to end animal suffering.

It’s easy to become a rescue partner with us!

We aspire for strong collaboration with rescue groups and other shelters to save animal lives throughout our community. We are an animal shelter with three campuses located in Escondido, Oceanside and San Diego.

We have staff members at each campus dedicated to working with our friends in the rescue community to coordinate animal transfers. We welcome all rescue inquiries and invite your organization to become an official Rescue Partner with us, which offers several benefits. #RescueWithUs

"We understand the process because we also work as a rescue group!"

Last year, we transferred in more than 3,000 animals from other animal shelters to our organization so we realize the importance of maintaining clear, consistent communication and protocols.
We work toward continuous improvement on best ways to communicate and coordinate animal transfers between us and our colleagues in animal welfare.

If you have suggestions on how we can continue improving collaboration and communication, please reach out to Sarah Thompson, our Director of Rescue and Recovery, at
