Welcome Home Dog Rescue is an all-volunteer, 501c(3) non-profit organization that exists solely on donations. We are a group of dedicated individuals working to change the ways our society deals with animal welfare. We are a group of both experienced dog owners/handlers and first timers, who believe all dogs deserve a good home. We need donations, foster homes, supplies including dog food, flea medication, leashes, harnesses, collars, dog beds, bowls and dog crates. We need volunteers to organize fundraising events, help socialize and attend training classes with our dogs and many other necessary activities.
What truly matters to us, is that we make a difference in the lives of abused, neglected and homeless dogs. To help reduce the number of dogs in shelters, Welcome Home Dog Rescue offers rescue and adoption services specific to the adopter’s needs and lifestyles so that both ends of the leash can find a happy home together.
Although rehoming each abandoned or neglected dog is challenging, at Welcome Home Dog Rescue, we believe that each saved life makes it worth the hard work! We believe in spay/neuter, vaccination and microchipping of adoptable pets and word-of-mouth education. We believe that animals are family members who deserve lifelong care, affection and medical treatment. It is our fervent wish to end and prevent needless suffering of animals.
We are located in Southern Californa serving mainly in the Orange County area, but we have a volunteer network in Los Angeles and Riverside County as well. We do not do out of state adoptions unless there are special circumstances.

Our adoption fees range from $300 to $700. This includes a fully vetted, neutered or spayed, microchipped and flea free dog that will be a wonderful addition to your family. We are non-profit, but this fee helps offset the rescue's costs for veterinary care, rehabilitation, transportation, food, crate, bedding, supplements, medication, clothing, ID tag, collar, leash, harness, bowls, and bedding. 100% of the adoption fee goes towards expenses for the dogs.
