Shasta Dogs applauds the work of shelters and dog rescue organizations. Many wonderful dogs are waiting for homes! Check out our index of Northern California rescues and the adoptable dogs in Northern California on Petfinder.com.
We also support users who foster/train for shelters and rescues. Our events are a great place to work adoptable-dogs-in-training.
