Featured Adoptable Animals

Hot Rod is at Rots of Friends in Woodland, CA still awaiting his fur-ever home!

Interested in fostering a dog, cat or kitten?

We sure could use some foster homes. It allows us to save more animals and it gives you an opportunity to help out in a very hands-on way. We would be thrilled to have you join our ranks of committed and oh-so-important foster homes. It can be a very rewarding experience for you and an animal. Email for information about our fostering program.

Please fill out our foster application for Cats and Kittens, save, and return to Home at Last as an email attachment. You can also email or call 510-981-0890 for dog fostering. Thank you!

Adoption Fee? Here's why:

Most of the dogs and cats presented on our pages have been rescued from the Animal Shelter in Berkeley, California and are now living in temporary foster homes with incredibly caring people. They have all been spayed or neutered, and are up to date on their shots.

Others were rescued from various circumstances, abandonment being the most common. In order to continue our work, we charge a fee for adopting an animal.

  • Our adoption fee for dogs and puppies is $200.
  • Our adoption fees for kittens and cats are 1 for $100, 2 for $175.
  • Please ask about our special rates for senior cats and dogs.
  • Read more about black pets here.

These prices now include the microchip registration fee.

We also ask that you fill out an Adoption Application, and a Pet Adoption Agreement to help us ensure that our animals are going to loving, stable homes. Please keep in mind that we are a non-profit organization and that your donation will not only help us to save more animals, it's also fully tax-deductible. We kindly ask for your support even if you are unable to adopt at this time.
