Adoption Procedure

We have many wonderful rescues available. You can preview most of the rescues here on our website, but it may not be complete as we get new intakes regularly. The best thing to do is to contact Renee to discuss your particular situation and which rescue may be a good fit for you or you can just show up during our regular adoption hours to meet the rescues and we can work with you to find a good match. We have regular adoption hours most Saturday's between 8am - 11am, or by appointment. We are not usually available on Sundays. Getting a dog is an important decision, and all members of the household must be present (including children). If you have another dog, you must bring them with you in order for us to evaluate whether one of our rescues will be a good fit for your family. We suggest having them crated in the car. Proof of home ownership or a letter stating landlord permission is required.

If you would like to come out during regular adoption hours, you can call to let us know (leave a message if we do not answer) or just show up during the adoption hours. If you do find a dog to adopt, the adoption donation is $200-$250, which helps Rotts of Friends offset the costs for spay/neuter, vaccinations, microchipping, and boarding. The sanctuary is located 34505 County Road 29, Woodland, California. As an added benefit, all of our rescues come with free lifetime obedience training.

The best way to reach us is 530-681-1326 or rottsoffriends@gmail.com.


When Considering a ROF Adoption

Your donation at the time of an adoption is not a fee to buy a dog; it is a donation for the service we provide. It is not refundable. Your donation may be claimed as a tax deductible donation, and furthers our efforts to do as much as we can for as many as we can. We incur significant expenses in paying redemption fees, veterinary fees, transportation costs, boarding, and food costs and ask for an adoption donation for each dog. Your donation offsets a portion of those costs, but in no event exceeds the amount of care actually provided. All donations are applied to our rescue program to further the ROF mission.

Rescuing an animal is a commitment. They are not perfect, and in most cases ROF will have limited information about the dog's history. ROF makes its placements based on our evaluation of the dogs, and decades of experience handling dogs and matching dogs to appropriate owners. In addition, we rely on the information provided by our prospective adopters; honesty is the best policy when discussing a potential rescue. Despite the number of dogs in need of homes, it may be that ROF does not have a rescue suitable for your particular situation. Children and other pets are but a few factors that we consider in placing a rescue. The determination to place or not to place any animal is made in ROF's sole discretion. We are advocates for the animals, and it is our goal to do what is best for the dog.

Your new companion may have accidents, bark, jump, chew or require regular exercise. No dog is perfect and even a good natured, obedient and trained dog may create stress in the home initially. Please keep in mind that you may love your new pet on Day 1, but it may take some time for your new family member to feel secure in their new environment. Be respectful that you are a stranger to them and not do too much too soon. A crate is an excellent tool for training; we recommend continued crate training as part of a successful transition into your home. These are just some of the things ROF expects potential adopters to consider before making the decision to rescue.

As an additional incentive, all ROF rescues come with FREE lifetime obedience offered at our facility by trainer Renee Lancaster with Yolo Canine Academy. ROF offers a six week basic obedience class that runs consecutively year round. We work on basic handling skills and the "heel", "sit", "stay", "down", and "come" commands. ROF rescues can come to the classes as often as they like, free of charge. The class is open to all breeds and is not limited to ROF rescues. ROF is available to discuss specific questions or circumstances for the life of your dog.

If for some reason, you can no longer honor your commitment to the dog. ROF's policy is that the dog MUST be returned to ROF. They cannot be sold, given away, placed on "craigslist", or brought to a shelter. ROF is a Forever Home for these animals and in the event they must be returned they must be returned to us. Please contact us and allow up to 72 hour for ROF to make arrangements for your dog's safe return.

STORMY

STORMY: MALTESE CROSS 1-2 YEAR OLD, Female

My name is Stormy and I'm a 1-2 year old spayed female Maltese Cross. I was found running in Sacramento so ended up in the shelter. No one ever came looking for me so Auntie Renee brought me to ROF so I could find a perfect Forever Home. I play really well with other little dogs.

I was in the Yolo County Animal Shelter and everyone there fell totally in love with me 'cause I'm such a lovable guy!

When I get done I'll be a well mannered and trained boy! Please come out and meet me! If you adopt me now I'll still go through Boot Camp and it'll ensure you end up with me - a sweet, sweet, sweet boy! Thank you, Yolo County, for caring!

COLE

COLE : RAT TERRIER 1 1/2 YEARS OLD, Male

My name is Cole and I'm a 1 1/2 year old neutered male purebred Rat Terrier. I was raised in a home with children so I'm really good with kids. In my short life I have been bounced around and have had a couple of homes where I wasn't trained properly so I got away with being naughty. I can be very protective so I will do best in a quieter home where there aren't a lot of strangers coming in and out. My last home was a great one with a 3 year old child who I loved but they live on a farm. We learned quickly I don't do well with goats and sheep so now Auntie Renee is helping find my last Forever Home. I'm very healthy, microchipped and up to date on vaccines. So if you don't have any farm animals near your home and your home is a quiet one I should do great! Come meet me!!

DAVY: TERRIER 1 YEAR OLD, Male

My name is Davy and I'm a super sweet and adorable 1 year old neutered male Terrier. I'm a very friendly little guy. I love people of all ages and never met a dog I didn't want to play with! I'm healthy and a good weight. My only fault is that I'm an escape artist. It's manageable as long as you put me in my crate when you leave me home - alone. I just really want to come with you so I'll try to get out. Otherwise I'm pretty perfect! I love to play, cuddle and go on walks! I'm healthy, up to date on vaccines and microchipped.

DAVY
TOM TOM

TOM TOM: BEAGLE MIX 2 - 3 YEARS OLD, Male

My name is Tom Tom and I'm a 2-3 year old Beagle/Rottie/Lab mix. I was found in Stanislaus County. My 3 siblings and I were abandoned and left to fend for ourselves. Yes, our owner just left us in the garage and moved away... Our owner did not give us much attention - maybe none at all. When we were confiscated people were calling us puppies because of our small size but actually I'm about 2-3 years old. Maybe we just had a very poor diet that stunted our growth. When I arrived, like my sister (who has already been adopted!), we were very shut down and frightened. We wouldn't walk. Auntie Renee still has to carry me out to go potty. I actually can walk. When she leaves me in the yard, I walk just fine. It's just when there are people wanting me to go with them that I freeze. The good news is, despite my fear, I am extremely sweet and lovable. I never try to bite or nip when someone moves me somewhere. I'll come out of this and be just fine. I'm already better than I was when I first arrived. I just need a patient loving home and family to help me see that life can be really fun when it's filled with people who love you! If you think you have room in your house and heart for me, call Auntie Renee!

HANSEL: ROTTWEILER 1 1/2 -2 YEARS OLD, Male

I've spent the rest of the time with him having a blast but then he dumped me too when he got a serious girlfriend who didn't like me.

I'm an expert riding in a car! I've been on several 12 hour + car trips and never complained - just slept the whole time (I'd be a great companion for a long distance trucker :) ) I love to play ball although I was never really good about bringing it back. I'm housebroken and have spent my life living in an apartment and going on daily walks or hikes. I walk very well on leash. I've never spent any time around children so I should be in an adult only household and no cats or small dogs as I love to chase small fast moving critters.

Some kind person stopped and I hopped in their car! (I know a good thing when I see it!) I was taken to a small shelter there but no one ever came for me. The people there loved me! I had a whole team of people trying to place me and finally were able to get me into ROF. As you can guess, I'm very people friendly and loving. I can't get enough of playing fetch! I could probably play all day! I'm a fun girl who will keep you smiling all the time! Unfortunately I don't play well with other dogs so I need to be an "only" dog. :( Otherwise, I'm very healthy, up to date on my shots and microchipped.

After that Auntie Renee saw me there, took me in and now I have hope that my next owner will decide I'm a keeper! I'm very handsome and come from German Rottie lines.

I also walk well on leash. Those are my plus points. On the other hand, I was attacked by another dog once and the event has left me not liking other dogs. Also no cats, please! I really need an experienced dog owner due to food aggression issues and a home with no small children; otherwise, I'm a nice active big lab that needs a job. I'll make a super new best friend for anyone looking to have me as their only pet.

My name is Chrissy and I'm a 2 year old spayed female Manchester mix. I was rescued from a hoarding situation with my brothers, Buttons and Rocket. It appears as though we may not have been outside before or even held. We spent the first three days here huddled together in the corner of the kennel. It's all baby steps but we are definitely becoming a wee bit braver. I am the most timid of the three. I need a home where someone can give me much needed need loving social contact. I'd be a great match for an older homebound person or quiet family. I'm a work in progress, but I'm making baby steps in the right direction. I have a gentle personality. I'm healthy, up to date on my shots and microchipped.
