Trying to Make Your Adoption a Little Easier

As an animal rescue, we understand that diving into the adoption process can be a little daunting and even confusing at times. That’s why we here at Paw Works try to make the adoption process as easy as possible to put future adopters and future pups at ease. The ways that we primarily do this is through our innovative Sleepover Sunday program.
This one-of-a-kind program allows you to bring your potential new best friend home on Sunday from 5:30 pm until Tuesday 11:00am. Sleepover Sunday allows everyone involved a little time to make this life long commitment while building trust with your “temporary” pet. If you or any of your friends are interested in adopting but are a little hesitant, please consider the Sleepover Sunday as an option. Puppies and cats are excluded from this program.

Fair warning, chances are good you’ll fall in love!

    Hi! I haven’t seen any info on your social media about which dogs will be available over the weekend at your public adoption events. Is it safe to assume that ALL your available dogs will be on site? I’m looking to meet your litter of Terrier/Havanese puppies and wanted to come by tomorrow morning. Thank you!!!

  • Hi. Paw works, we saw a puppy on “Puppy Bowl” website that is listed being at your shelter. How do I find out, on if he is there, all I have his name Wilber.
    Thank you

  • Hey Paw Works, I was wondering do we have to go only to the adoption events to adopt a pet because I am interested and would like to come this Thursday to adopt.

    • Paw Works Adoption center is closed during the week and only open on Saturday and Sunday.
      Please read below for our location, hours and rules at our adoption center

      The Paw Works Adoption Center is located at:

      180 W. Hillcrest #9, Thousand Oaks, CA, 91360


      Saturday 10:00am – 5:00pm

      Sunday 11:00am – 4:00pm

      Sunday Sleepovers begin Sunday at 1:00pm.

      Adoption Center Guidlines:

      A facemask covering mouth and nose will be required at all times.

      Each group entering our adoption center will be limited to four people per adoption counselor (one person in the group must be 18 or older),

      limit any interaction with others not in their group and keep the proper 6ft distance.

      All initial pet meetings will happen within the adoption center and instructions will be given for the meet and greet.

      Sanitizer stations will be accessible at all times.

      Temperature checks may be required for all entries in to our adoption center.

      Please keep in mind that wait times will depend on the quantity of potential adopters and dogs available for adoption.

      Failure to follow our COVID 19 protocols will result in being asked to leave the Paw Works Adoption Center.


      Adoption Fees:

      Adult dogs: $400

      Puppies: $550

      𝐀𝐃𝐎𝐏𝐓𝐈𝐎𝐍 𝐅𝐄𝐄𝐒 𝐂𝐎𝐕𝐄𝐑: spay/neuter, microchip, vaccinations based on age, initial dewormer and flea treatment as well any previous medical needs and care our rescue has received. We also provide a 𝐅𝐑𝐄𝐄 examination voucher at Paw Works Veterinary Hospital for all adopters.

      All animals will be 𝐑𝐄𝐐𝐔𝐈𝐑𝐄𝐃 to leave wearing a collar, harness and leash for their safety during transport from center to furever home.

      We will no longer require the spending of $150 in supplies at adoption day but appreciate those who do continue purchasing supplies at our center as it goes directly towards funding the rescue and our life saving efforts.

      We look forward to seeing you all at this weekends adoption event!
