Adoption Information

Apply to Adopt an Old English Sheepdog

Under these current extraordinary times,
we are not accepting applications for adoption.

We place 2-4 healthy, but unwanted, Old English Sheepdogs in loving homes every month. The average age of our rescue dogs is 3-5 years. We rescue and place dogs ONLY in California, Arizona, and Southern Nevada. If you are not located in our area of the country, please visit The Old English Sheepdog Club of America website to see a list of rescue organizations in your area.

STEP 1. Please Read Our Terms

Please be sure to read and understand our terms of adoption before you apply. At the time you adopt a dog you will be asked to sign and agree to the terms of Old English Sheepdog Rescue of Southern California, Inc., adoption/placement agreement and make a minimum donation.


STEP 2. Fill Out Application Form to Get On Our Wait-list

Fill out the application form, we currently have a wait-list for dogs, so please be patient. We have no way of knowing how long your wait for a rescue dog will be as we cannot predict when a rescue dog will enter our program via an animal shelter or from an owner who is unable to keep their dog.

Under these current extraordinary times,
we are not accepting applications for adoption.
