Bring Home Your Forever Friend
Adopting a dog is the best gift you can give yourself. Not only are you helping an animal in need, but you're creating a bond that fills your life with joy, fun, adventures and unconditional love. Don't hesitate another day, bring home your best friend, forever.
Adopting a dog may be the only opportunity a human has to choose a relative.
It is our responsibility to find the best possible homes for the dogs in our care. We consider important details in finding the right fit, such as a person's home, interests and lifestyle. We then match those with the dogs social, exercise and training needs. Some Thrive dogs have special needs or requirements; for instance needing to be an only pet, medical issues or perhaps they are not good with kids. For this reason we reserve the right to deny an adoption if we feel it is not a good fit or in the dogs' best interest.
Thrive Animal Rescue has a $200 adoption fee for all adult dogs and $300 for puppies under 6 months old. Fees may vary based on the age of the adopted dog. There are costs incurred in pulling a dog from a shelter and getting it ready for its forever home, and this fee helps to cover some of those costs. Thrive is a 501(c)3 donation based non-profit. Because of generous donations from dog lovers all over the country, we are able to continue our quest to save one sweet soul at a time.
All of our dogs are evaluated for health and behavior and receive the following before going into a new home:
- DHPP-Parvo/Bordatella for dogs and puppies
- Rabies vaccinations
- Spay or Neuter
- Treatment of any known illness

Available Friends: Dogs Ready for Adoption!
Two year old neutered male Pitbull who is the sweetest dog EVER according to his trainer and foster mom. He’s great with all dogs and children, loves to be cuddled and he lays his head on your shoulder while sleeping on your lap. He is underweight at 56 lbs, but gaining weight nicely.
He is currently recovering from wounds caused as a result of being owned by terribly inhumane monsters who do not belong on this planet. He is safe and happy now.
Liam is a 1 year old male Aussie mix. Great temperment, three legs due to an accident that resulted in amputation of his right hind leg. He is SO GREAT! Loves people and gets along with dogs.
What we love about these two shy beauties, is how much they love other dogs. That is definitely a theme for us at Thrive- we try our best to find dogs who like dogs as much as we do. We knew it would be some time before they were ready for adoption, so we sent them to Dusty Tails Lodge to get them acclimated to life among human kindness, and now, several months later, they are coming around. Here is Marlie’s report on the girls.
“These girls came to us when they were around 12-14 weeks old. They were beyond terrified and wanted nothing to do with people. They were perfectly happy being in their crates and being left alone. We gave them some time to acclimate to their new environment and then had them take turns each day being in a crate in the middle of the house, so they could get used to all the sounds, and sights that go along with being in a household with people and other dogs. We started to notice they loved to be around the other dogs, it was the humans they were very afraid of. If out in the yard with the other dogs they would run and play but as soon as they realized we were around they would scatter and run for their crates. I took turns attaching them to my waist and having them follow me all over the house and I would give them treats all day long. This really helped form a closer and more trusting bond with the girls.”
This cute little male Cattle Dog is neutered , house broken and ready to meet his new family!
This little was found over a week ago on a freeway on-ramp. She is estimated to be 4-5 months and about 25-30lbs. She is a shepherd mix with large ears. She loves people, dogs and is friendly with cats. She has a tiny bit of separation anxiety but that's something she will grow out of with the right dog parent.
