ON FILE WITH OLD ENGLISH SHEEPDOG RESCUE AND YOU ARE NOW ON OUR WAITING
LIST.

IF YOU DO NOT RECEIVE AN EMAIL WITHIN 72 HOURS, YOUR FORM HAS NOT BEEN

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.

We place 2-4 healthy, but unwanted, Old English Sheepdogs in loving homes every month. Dogs vary in age. We rescue younger, older and special needs dogs.

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. Please fill out the Application Form and be patient as we currently have a wait-list for dogs.

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. Since our dogs enter the program via animal shelters or from an owner who is unable to keep their dog, it can take time to find a dog that you are looking for and will fit into your family.

The purpose of this interview is to meet you and get a better feeling for the type of rescue dog you are looking to adopt. This personal interview can be months away. We will contact you.
