Dog and Puppy Adoption
To complete a dog adoption or puppy adoption is to to welcome a companion, a family member, a life-long friend. With each dog who is adopted into a loving family, Pasado’s Safe Haven is able to rescue another. If you aren’t able to adopt, consider fostering a dog! You can help with dog and puppy adoption by providing a safe space and acting as the animal’s advocate.
View the animal profiles below and see if your next family member is waiting for you! When you are ready to take the next step, click the “Adopt” or “Foster” buttons to be directed to a questionnaire.
There is a $150 adoption fee for all dogs to help cover the cost of their spay/neuter, vaccinations, and microchipping.
The Smartest Dog You Will Ever Meet
Aurora is a one-of-a-kind dog with a beautiful smile. She is athletic, agile and would be happy to play fetch and run in a big backyard. Aurora is 6 years old but still has the get-up-and-go of a 2-year-old.
At Pasado’s Safe Haven, Aurora showers her favorite caregivers with kisses, hugs and excited tail wags. She is learning to feel calm and relaxed in her environment and really enjoys having an opportunity to exercise her mind with tricks and puzzles. Aurora enjoys lounging in the sun, exploring all the trails around the sanctuary and joyfully rolling around in the grass.
If you would like to be Aurora’s new family, fill out an adoption or foster questionnaire today!
The Cuddliest Dog You Will Ever Meet
Baby is the sweetest cuddle bug! She doesn’t even need a bed because all she wants is to curl up into a big pile of blankets (if she isn’t already curled up in your lap). She is full of spunk and would make a great running or hiking partner for an active household. She greets strangers with a smile and loves to make new friends. Give this girl a chance – adopt today!
Esmae – Adoption Pending
Build a Special Bond with this Puggle
Esmae spent the first two years of her life taking care of herself – because of this she can be a little slow to trust – but is making amazing progress very quickly with the help of her “mentor dog.” Spending time with a happy, well socialized pup has completely transformed Esmae so she is now asking for pets and attention from her caregivers.
When asked what her favorite thing about Esmae is, she said, “How can I pick just one thing?! I would say a combination of how excited she is for pets and that smile of hers! To see the joy and excitement she gets now from getting attention warms my heart. I am very honored that she has chosen to trust me so quickly!”
Esmae can choose you too – you just have to give her a chance by completing a questionnaire today.
A Velvet Hippo With Nothing But Love
Marty was rescued by Pasado’s Safe Haven with bleeding pressure sores on his malnourished body. Now Marty is a happy, healthy boy at 63lbs with his only hardship being that he simply loves people TOO much. Marty suffered from separation anxiety in his past home because all he wants is to be with people – but he is a confused little boy who needs confidence building and training catered to his specific needs (something we are preemptively working on at the sanctuary).
One of Marty’s Caregivers said, “The first time I took Marty outside, I laid out in the grass, trying to get him to enjoy the outdoors but all he wanted to do was lay on top of me. He would come up and stretch his whole body up mine and rest his chin on my chin. I think Marty needs to be with someone who understands that they are his WHOLE WORLD. When he loves, he loves hard and sometimes it’s difficult for him.” But we all agree, that’s also one of the best things about Marty.
May – In Foster Care
The Most Independent Dog You Will Ever Meet
This independent, wild-at-heart dog needs an independent, wild-at-heart human. Everyone has heard of “emotional support dogs” but what May really needs is an “emotional support human.” She is an adorable misfit who ran wild on the streets of Hawaii before being rescued by Pasado’s Safe Haven. Now she can be slow to trust but she’ll sit for a leash, loves taking walks, approaches for the best treats, and jumps right in the car for rides. It will take time and patience, but if you get where she’s coming from and give her time, May could be your trusted friend.
The Longest Dog-Towne Resident
Imagine this…. You spend day after day chained outside a drug house. Unable to move. Unable to protect yourself or fend for yourself. Your only access to food or water is the scraps a neighbor throws you.
Then one day someone unlocks the chain and you’re free – or so you thought. It was supposed to be a fun outing… then BOOM there’s a chemical explosion beside you. Now you’re locked back on your chain and you’re without yet another necessary resource – your eyesight.
One day rescuers come. They say they’re here to help, but why should you trust them? You don’t know them. You can’t even see them. They trap you in a car and take you to a new place. It’s scary but eventually you adjust. You learn to really love it there but you’re told they’ll find you a real home. Instead you sit there for three years…. waiting… and no one ever comes.
Doesn’t everyone deserve a home? You did nothing wrong – the humans did. And now you may never know the joy of a true home all because you take a little longer to trust people. And there’s nothing you can do – except keep waiting.
Don’t make Tee wait any longer. Complete a questionnaire to foster or adopt this sweet, silly, and loving boy today.
*He needs a home without children or other animals.
Victims of Cruelty
You Can Help!
Hi – I’m Banjo! I was adopted from Pasado’s Safe Haven a long time ago and I am here to tell you about some other AMAZING dogs they have at the sanctuary but aren’t able to show you yet.
Pasado’s Safe Haven rescues animals from criminal cases of neglect/cruelty. Sometimes these animals are not able to be seen by the public until they are released by the court system. While I can’t show you them yet, trust me – they will melt your heart! Some are big, some are small – all are lovable!
They get excellent care and of course lots of love. I can show you their picture as soon as the case against the person who caused them harm is completed. So please check back frequently…and tell your friends too! My friends look forward to meeting you soon!
If you would like to help these animals, you can complete a foster questionnaire for our “Paws in Protection” foster program. Learn more about that program here.
