Match Made in Heaven Animal Rescue is an all volunteer rescue organization in California and Oregon. We are dedicated to rescuing dogs, of all breeds and sizes, from the many overpopulated shelters of California where they are at high risk of being euthanized. Many of these dogs have been abandoned, neglected or mistreated and our goal is to give them a better life, by placing them into loving, responsible and committed forever homes, while providing a loving family pet to adopters in need of a new furever friend and family member!

We maintain a comprehensive adoption process which includes application, interview, home check and an in person meet with all members of the potential home, taking special care to find good matches not just for the adoptive family but, the best match for the dog. We want families to be aware of the lifetime responsibility of caring for a pet and hope to educate on the responsibility and cost of bringing a pet into their homes and lives.

We serve the communities of Central California by alleviating some of the burden of the shelters and shelter workers by reducing the number of euthanized animals. We also serve the communities of California and Oregon by working to make the best match possible for families looking to adopt a dog, with the goal of making our matches be forever ones. We aim to provide education and encouragement to adopters regarding responsible pet ownership with emphasis on the value of spaying and neutering and attempting to break the stereotypes of many bully breeds. We strive to work with area shelters and other rescue and humane organizations to develop a network of supporters and volunteers in order to create a better world for homeless pets and petless homes.

All of our dogs are placed in foster homes where they can be loved and learn how to live in a home, as some may have never had this experience. All dogs in our care will be spayed/neutered (unless age or health prohibits it) and will receive all appropriate veterinary care prior to being placed in forever homes. Any dogs adopted prior to an appropriate age for spay/neuter will be sent home with a signed contract to provide proof of spay/neuter within an appropriate time frame.

All funds received from donations and adoption fees will go directly to the care of the dogs as well as administrative costs. We strive to keep administrative costs as low as possible so that most every dollar brought in will go directly to the care of the animal. We are ultimately committed to the welfare of the dog before, during and after the adoption process. We strive to follow up with adopters to ensure that all dogs placed are continuing to have happy, healthy and loved lives!
