How to Adopt:
We do not have an adoption form, instead we prefer to meet potential adopters in person. One place to do that is at our Sunday adoption event at RT Rogers Brewery in Sierra Madre, California! For a full list of places where you can meet us and your new best friend, please scroll down to Meet Up Locations below.
Free Animal Doctor is a 501(c)3 charity, and incorporated as a non-profit in the State of California. We ask for a $300 donation with each adoption. This is a donation, and may be tax-deductible for you.
Not all the dogs at our event are available through Free Animal Doctor. Some are with other rescue organizations we partner with. Typically their conditions are the similar, but may vary slightly.

Stray at the construction site of a Marriott hotel in East Los Angeles, Lefty was known by the workers as he would show up at lunch time to ask for food. Fortunately one of the workers eventually got in touch with a rescue, that got ahold of us, and we managed to get him trapped and brought to safety. Originally we thought he might have a broken or injured leg, but upon examination the vet saw no signs of it, and his limping went away.
Lefty is a bit shy, and gets attached to a specific person. He is only about two years-old, and still puppy-ish. He is very sweet with people, and not aggressive at all, but he will defend a person from other dogs. He has been getting behavior training, and is neutered with all shots. We have had him since mid-February, and it is really time he found his forever home!

Bean looks 100% Chihuahua, except he is so barrel chested! We don't know what he is mixed with, but we just say "He's the world's biggest Chi!". He is about 15 pounds, around 5 years old. Bean came out of the Los Angeles City shelter system. He had a bad knee that required surgery.
Now Bean is fully recovered and ready for a home. He is very good with people, and with other dogs. He doesn't need to be in a home with other dogs, he gets by good alone, but he could be with others too. He'd be a good dog in an apartment, he's pretty mellow and doesn't bark much. Bean has a lot of personality, in a good way, but he's also low maintenance. He's got a cute underbite too!
He's a sweetie in a big body, just watch the video above! Ryu originally had some behavior problems. He got adopted, but then returned because he didn't fit in well. Since then he has had a lot of behavior training, and is now ready to find his true and final "furever" home!
Brandy is a 3 year old chi-terrier mix, tan with a white strip. She is friendly with most dogs, but your dog should meet her first. She and Bob get along great for example(video below)! Brandy had FHO, Femoral Head Ostectomy on May 25th and is healthy and happy as can be. She is as graceful as a deer with her new hip.
Bob is under a year old, tan and (mostly) white. We think he may be a Chi-Jack Russel mix. He came in with a broken foot, which has now healed. He's super sweet with people, and playful with other dogs. He can get a bit scared if you are to quick with him. He was probably born stray, and has been all his life but with a little patience, and at his young age, he will bond with his new family and be a great dogs.

Demi is our dainty flower. She is the sweetest little pup. At first she is very shy but once she opens up she loves to play.
Demi was found running the streets with her brother by a rescue. The owners were located and they said they didn't have time for them anymore and if the rescue wanted them to take them. Demi's brother was already adopted, now it's her turn. She gets along with small and large dogs.
