At The HIT Living Foundation, we wholeheartedly believe your dream pet is out there in the world of rescue and that you don’t need to turn to a breeder to get exactly what you’re looking for. We have seen first hand puppies, designer dogs and every shape, size and gender dog available for adoption at shelters and other rescues world wide. Whether it’s a specific breed you’re looking for, size, gender, species, we are here to help in the search of not only finding the right pet for you but making sure you’re the right hooman/s for that pet. While our specialty is with canines, we have worked with the re-homing and foster care of pigs, chickens, ducks, alpacas, a cow, goats and a tortoise. The HIT Living Foundation operates with a large network in the rescue world including farms, dog and cat rescue. Whether your new companion is in a shelter or in a foster home with another rescue, we do the legwork to find exactly what you’re looking for and make sure it’s the right fit for your lifestyle.

We ask for an initial $30 donation, completion of the questionnaire below and completion of our adoption application to begin the search. Please keep in mind not every question may apply to what it is you’re looking for! Don’t really mind the breed but need a medium sized, active hiking partner? Or maybe you need an oversized couch potato who is happy just going for walks and cuddling. Either way, fill out the form to the best of what you think you’d like and we’ll have a more in depth conversation about some possibilities.

We will first search with in the CA shelter system and then reach out to rescue contacts letting them know we have a party interested in this specific kind of animal. It could take anywhere from a few days to months to find your dream pet. We kindly ask for an additional donation per signing the final adoption paperwork pending on the extent of time, travel, any foster care or medical attention your new best friend may have required by The HIT Living Foundation. The HIT Living Foundation is entirely volunteer based and with out donations, none of this would be possible.
