Following steps 1-3, you will either be approved to adopt the dog or cat you are interested in or pre-approved and matched with some animals from which to choose! You can view the list of current animals online, attend one of our weekly Virtual or In Person Adoption Events to meet our pets, or you can work with your Adoption Coordinator to set up a meeting at a convenient time. If we don’t have the breed or size you are looking for, we can work with our shelter partners to find one.
Thinking of adding a new family member? Our adoption process is designed to place our Lucky Dogs and Cats with loving homes ensuring you and your new pet are a good fit! No need to have a particular animal in mind when starting the process – we are excited to pre-approve you following the steps below so when the right fit comes along – youll be ready! Visit our virtual events page to learn more or email us at [email protected].
Your Adoption Coordinator or Screener will also conduct any required checks, including a vet check to ensure your pets are up to date on medical needs, a landlord check if you rent, and a virtual home visit – during which a knowledgeable volunteer will meet with all residents of your home to identify any risks or items to monitor when your new pet arrives and ensure that everyone is ready to welcome them home!
Complete a Dog or Cat Adoption Questionnaire at the link below. If you are interested in applying for a specific animal on the website, please be sure to list their names on your questionnaire. If you cannot select an animal please still submit your questionnaire and write in the notes who you might be interested in! You only need to apply once and we will ensure it is directed to the right person. Please note that submitting an application is the first step in our process and does not guarantee adoption of a particular dog or cat. Email us at [email protected] if you have any questions!
Is there a real Lucky Dog Ranch?
Before his Lucky Dog fame, he trained animals like lions and tigers — and even insects — for movies and TV shows. It wasn’t until 2010 when Brandon opened a dog boarding and training center, Lucky Dog Ranch, which is located outside Los Angeles. That’s when he started training service dogs and therapy dogs.
