Rescue Organizations – Animal Adoptions

The Mutt Scouts –
Where many rescue groups are breed specific, we are not. Where you will find others that only will accept cute and immediately place-able dogs, you will not find us. To be sure, we have our share of adorable dogs and plenitude of puppies, but we do not shy away from the extra special animal that may take more nurturing, more care and often more time before they are ready to join their new families.

FOCASFOCAS stands for Friends of County Animal Shelters. FOCAS exists primarily to encourage a strong adoption program for animals impounded in the three shelters operated by the County of San Diego Department of Animal Services.
