     The Pups on Parole program was started in June, 2007 to give homeless dogs a second chance at finding forever homes. All the dogs in the program spent time in our local animal shelter waiting for their owners to redeem them, or to be adopted. Some were scheduled for euthanasia prior to being placed in our program. The selected dogs are brought current on vaccinations, spayed\neutered if necessary, microchipped, and heartworm tested.They are then taken to the California Correction Center Fire House where they are each assigned to an inmate firefighter trainer. The trainers give these dogs the extra time, love, and attention they need to become wonderful family companions. Graduates are highly socialized and housetrained, and most know basic obedience commands. As of April, 2017, over 500 dogs have been adopted through this program, 26 just this year.
     Adoption fees are $200 which covers expenses incurred for each dog. If you're interested in adopting, you can see listings of our available dogs at petfinder.com, and search for zip 96130. If you find a likely candidate, email or call us and we'll follow up.
