Adoption Procedure

We have many wonderful rescues available. You can preview most of the rescues here on our website, but it may not be complete as we get new intakes regularly. The best thing to do is to contact Renee to discuss your particular situation and which rescue may be a good fit for you or you can just show up during our regular adoption hours to meet the rescues and we can work with you to find a good match. We have regular adoption hours most Saturday's between 8am - 11am, or by appointment. We are not usually available on Sundays. Getting a dog is an important decision, and all members of the household must be present (including children). If you have another dog, you must bring them with you in order for us to evaluate whether one of our rescues will be a good fit for your family. We suggest having them crated in the car. Proof of home ownership or a letter stating landlord permission is required.

If you would like to come out during regular adoption hours, you can call to let us know (leave a message if we do not answer) or just show up during the adoption hours. If you do find a dog to adopt, the adoption donation is $200-$250, which helps Rotts of Friends offset the costs for spay/neuter, vaccinations, microchipping, and boarding. The sanctuary is located 34505 County Road 29, Woodland, California. As an added benefit, all of our rescues come with free lifetime obedience training.

The best way to reach us is 530-681-1326 or rottsoffriends@gmail.com.


When Considering a ROF Adoption

Your donation at the time of an adoption is not a fee to buy a dog; it is a donation for the service we provide. It is not refundable. Your donation may be claimed as a tax deductible donation, and furthers our efforts to do as much as we can for as many as we can. We incur significant expenses in paying redemption fees, veterinary fees, transportation costs, boarding, and food costs and ask for an adoption donation for each dog. Your donation offsets a portion of those costs, but in no event exceeds the amount of care actually provided. All donations are applied to our rescue program to further the ROF mission.

Rescuing an animal is a commitment. They are not perfect, and in most cases ROF will have limited information about the dog's history. ROF makes its placements based on our evaluation of the dogs, and decades of experience handling dogs and matching dogs to appropriate owners. In addition, we rely on the information provided by our prospective adopters; honesty is the best policy when discussing a potential rescue. Despite the number of dogs in need of homes, it may be that ROF does not have a rescue suitable for your particular situation. Children and other pets are but a few factors that we consider in placing a rescue. The determination to place or not to place any animal is made in ROF's sole discretion. We are advocates for the animals, and it is our goal to do what is best for the dog.

Your new companion may have accidents, bark, jump, chew or require regular exercise. No dog is perfect and even a good natured, obedient and trained dog may create stress in the home initially. Please keep in mind that you may love your new pet on Day 1, but it may take some time for your new family member to feel secure in their new environment. Be respectful that you are a stranger to them and not do too much too soon. A crate is an excellent tool for training; we recommend continued crate training as part of a successful transition into your home. These are just some of the things ROF expects potential adopters to consider before making the decision to rescue.

As an additional incentive, all ROF rescues come with FREE lifetime obedience offered at our facility by trainer Renee Lancaster with Yolo Canine Academy. ROF offers a six week basic obedience class that runs consecutively year round. We work on basic handling skills and the "heel", "sit", "stay", "down", and "come" commands. ROF rescues can come to the classes as often as they like, free of charge. The class is open to all breeds and is not limited to ROF rescues. ROF is available to discuss specific questions or circumstances for the life of your dog.

If for some reason, you can no longer honor your commitment to the dog. ROF's policy is that the dog MUST be returned to ROF. They cannot be sold, given away, placed on "craigslist", or brought to a shelter. ROF is a Forever Home for these animals and in the event they must be returned they must be returned to us. Please contact us and allow up to 72 hour for ROF to make arrangements for your dog's safe return.

CASEY: GERMAN SHEPHERD 8 OLD, Male

My name is Casey and I'm a handsome 1 year old neutered male black German Shepherd. I'm a really nice big friendly goofball! My previous owner was a complete loser. I got loose and picked up by animal control. My owner didn't come looking for me so they assumed I was homeless. I was intact so they took me in to be neutered. I had no sooner been anesthetize when my owner called and made the vet wake me up. He said no on the neuter. But then they never heard from him again. Really?? So a few days later it was back to the vet's office to finish the job. I'm very healthy. I need a brush up on my Obedience Training but since I come with free lifetime Obedience training classes, that will be easy. I will probably do well with female dogs. I'll make a great jogging partner, hiking buddy, and older kid entertainer!

CASEY

My name is Arnez and I'm a neutered male 1 1/2 year old purebred Rottweiler with a cropped tail. I was brought in with my sister Lucille. I'm a big friendly hunk of a dog. Obviously I get along well with female dogs. I seem pretty even tempered and happy natured. I'm looking for an active family who will be sure I get at least a moderate amount of exercise.

Someone who will throw the ball for me? I also come with free Obedience Training lessons for life!! The next 6 week series starts in the next couple of weeks so you can get going right away in teaching me my Obedience commands. I'm looking for a Forever Family that has experience with Rotties.

JILLIAN
ALYSSA

ALYSSA: GERMAN SHEPHERD 6 YEARS OLD, Female

Alyssa was brought to us after being found wandering the streets of Marysville. She is about 6 years old and by the looks of it has been living in such filthy conditions that flies over time have eaten away the tips of her ears!! Poor baby! Can you imagine how painful and crazy making that would be? Yet Alyssa is sweet as they come! Very very people friendly and gentle natured! She deserves an especially wonderful home!

LEO: MASTIFF MIX 1 - 1 1/2 YEARS OLD, Male

Leo is a super sweet yet shy neutered male Mastiff mix. Whatever the mix part was he is not super tall but is muscular. He's a gorgeous copper penny color! Leo was found running with his sister Squish who recently found a Forever Home. Whoever owned this sweet boy should have their ears brutally cut off just like they did to Leo. When he came to ROF, he was extremely shy. He wouldn't walk on a leash. We had to carry him outside. Now he has come a long way. He will walk on a leash and since his sister has been adopted we have moved him into the front office kennel so he will have a lot of people contact. He is a very sweet boy and loves attention. Come meet him! You will love this big hearted boy!

LEO

YANKEE: ROTTWEILER 1 1/2 - 2 YEARS OLD, Male

My name is Yankee and I'm a 1 1/2 - 2 year old neutered male Rottweiler. I was found in a Walmart parking lot in the Manteca area suffering from starvation and full of fleas. Now that I'm being fed regularly I'm becoming my old happy energetic self again! I haven't had a chance to be put out with any other dogs but through the fence I'm very friendly and full of tail wags! I like being around people. I'm much handsomer than my picture shows. I was being camera shy that day! Haha!

BEASLEY: BELGIAN MALINOIS CROSS 6 YEARS OLD, Male

Beasley is a 6 year old neutered male Belgian Malinois cross. Beasley was sent to Rotts of Friends by those wonderful people up in Humboldt. He's a typical Malinois, very energetic so would make a great jogging / hiking partner! He's crate trained and walks well on leash. Beasley is getting training for Obedience so he will be a star when it comes to good manners! His current only bad habit that we are working on is he likes to bite the leash. 😝 He's a very people friendly boy and seems to like female dogs - probably not cats.

BEASLEY
JASON

JASON: GERMAN SHEPHERD/ ROTTWEILER 10 MONTHS, Male

My name is Jason and I'm a 1 1/2 year old neutered male German Shepherd / Rottweiler mix. I'm a nice medium size and a bundle of enthusiasm! Needless to say, I could use some obedience training but since I come with FREE lifetime obedience training classes (and the next series starts on July 5!), you're in luck! I'm super friendly- just a big silly pup! I need an active family. I'd be a perfect jogging buddy. I'd help make sure you didn't talk yourself out of exercising! Come out and meet me by calling Renee at 530-681-1326 to set up an appointment.

REMBRANDT: ROTTWEILER 10 MONTHS - 1 YEAR, Male

My name is Rembrandt and I'm a 10 month to 1 year old neutered male purebred Rottie. I was saved at the last second from euthanasia at the Contra Costa Animal Shelter. A group of people thought I was pretty special and convinced Auntie Renee to take me into Rotts of Friends. How did a handsome little guy like me end up almost getting euthanized?? Auntie Renee says I'm going to be a smaller size male but what I lack in size I make up in attitude. 😊For that reason I probably shouldn't go to a home with young kids. I would probably do best in a home with experienced Rottie owners. I'm going to be an amazing dog cause I'm smart and really handsome. I just need some Obedience training. Since I come with free lifetime Obedience training classes that shouldn't be a problem. Come out and meet me!

REMBRANDT
DRAYMOND

DRAYMOND: ROTTWEILER/ LAB MIX 4 YEARS OLD, Male

My name is Draymond and I'm a 4 year old neutered male Rottie/Lab mix. I had a close call! I was out of time at the Martinez shelter - on the euthanasia list. A group of people donated money to help get me out! Auntie Renee said she would take me so I'm safe now at Rotts of Friends. I'm smaller than a normal male Rottie. I was pretty skinny when I first arrived but I've gained some weight so I look really good. I'm a really nice boy. I'm not dog reactive. I wag my tail when other dogs pass by. I love attention, being with people and playing in the big yard! I'm a really adorable boy!

CARROTS: ROTTWEILER 31/2 YEARS OLD, Female

My name is Carrots (Crunch! Crunch!! Yes. Interesting name) and I'm a super gorgeous purebred spayed female Rottweiler. I'm about 3 1/2 years old. Guess what? I'm housebroken and good with children. Maybe not little toddlers just because I'm bouncy and energetic so I might accidentally knock a tiny one over. I'm very playful! I act like a goofy puppy sometimes. I have a very sweet side to me. I will do best in a family with an active lifestyle. I grew up in a family with children, but they had to give me up through no fault of my own. My previous family loved me and wanted me to find a great new home so they paid for me to be trained by Auntie Renee in her Doggie Bootcamp Program. So to sum it up Im just about as perfect as they come! I mean really! Look at that face! Please come meet me! Woof! Woof!!

CARROTS
VANITY

VANITY: HUSKY / SHEPHERD 1 - 2 YEARS OLD, Female

KEEVA: STAFFORDSHIRE TERRIER 2 YEARS OLD, Female

Keeva is a stunningly gorgeous 2 year old spayed female Staffordshire Terrier. Keeva was found in Humboldt County. Lucky girl! Humboldt County is filled with dog lovers who are committed to helping homeless dogs get their best chance of finding the Forever Family all dogs deserve. Keeva was no exception. Everyone fell head over heels for this beauty and got her signed up for Auntie Renee's Boot Camp where she is learning to be a super well trained dog. It's no wonder everyone thought she was great! Keeva is a love! Very sweet and gentle natured. She loves to play ball or just roam around investigating everything her nose will reach. She has a cute little cross eyed look going on that makes you do a double take or maybe it's just her golden colored eyes. This girl would make a great hiking or jogging buddy. She's perfect for a family or as a new best friend for a single person. She looks as though she was very well cared for in her previous home. All she needs now is that Forever Family to make her life complete! ❤️

KEEVA
RAIDER

RAIDER: ROTTWEILER 5-6 YEARS OLD, Male

My name is Raider and I am a 5 to 6-year-old neutered male purebred handsome Rottweiler. I'm so lucky to be one of the new arrivals at Rotts of Friends. I was found wandering in Napa County and was taken to the Napa City Animal Shelter. Despite having a microchip, no one ever came to claim me. It's obvious some time in my life I was with a family who cared for me because I was already neutered and had been microchipped. But it looks like somewhere along the line I must have been given away and ended up just being a junkyard dog. I've got some scars on my ear and other indications that I've been living outside. I'm very handle able and I warm up nicely to people; however, I need an experienced Rottie owner just because I'm a big powerful dog. I will also need a home with no children, no cats and, as I'm somewhat dog reactive, no other dogs. So I just need a home with adults who will love and care for me but know my limits and not put me in any situations where I could get in trouble. I definitely need to brush up on my training but since I come with free lifetime obedience training classes that shouldn't be an issue.

RUE: ROTTEILER 2 YEAR OLD, Female

My name is Rue and I'm a 2 year old purebred spayed female Rottweiler! I was rescued from a shelter by my Guardian Angel Jim Hill. 😘Thank you, Jim! Everyone at the shelter thought I was wonderful but they needed help finding a home for me so Jim came to my rescue. He brought me to ROF knowing that Auntie Renee would be able to find me the perfect Forever Home.! I'm very sweet and super playful. Give me a squeaky or a ball and I'll play all day! I have a slightly deformed front left leg. it was broken at some point and never was given any medical attention so it healed a little out of whack. It doesn't bother me though. I'm selective with my dog friends. I get along with most male dogs. No females or cats, please. I would be quite happy as an only dog as I really love just being with my humans. I will do best in a home with adults only or a family with children 6 years or older. Cone meet me! Once you do, you won't want to leave without me!

RUE

My name is Berta and I'm a beautiful 2 year old spayed female Rottweiler. I'm a really big girl and it looks like I was well cared for wherever I came from.

TYKE: BOXER/ PIT TERRIER MIX 1 YEAR OLD, Male

My name is Tyke (AKA Rodeo) and I'm a 1 year old neutered male Boxer/Pit Terrier mix. I'm a nice medium size and as handsome as can be. I was in the Yolo County Animal Shelter and everyone there fell totally in love with me 'cause I'm such a lovable guy! They wanted to keep me safe and ensure I ended up with a wonderful home so they set up a fund and raised enough money to enroll me in Yolo Canine Academy's Boot Camp. When I get done I'll be a well mannered and trained boy! Please come out and meet me! If you adopt me now I'll still go through Boot Camp and it'll ensure you end up with me - a sweet, sweet, sweet boy! Thank you, Yolo County, for caring!

TYKE
GIGI

GIGI: ROTTWEILER 1 1/2 YEARS OLD, Female

I'm very healthy, microchipped , up to date on vaccines and come with free lifetime obedience training classes!

CECILLIA: ROTTWEILER 1 1/2 YEARS OLD, Female

My name is Cecilla and I'm a 1 1/2 year old purebred spayed female Rottweiler. I'm a beautiful girl with a tail. I'm pretty perfect. I'm super people - sweet as can be.

My name is Tidbit and I am a 1 year old spayed female Poodle. I was rescued from sure death by a Guardian Angel and taken to Rotts of Friends.

I love to go for long walks or jogs! I'm very healthy, up to date on my shots and microchipped. I come with free lifetime obedience training. If I sounds like the dog of your dreams, Call Renee at 530-681-1326 to set up an appointment to meet me.

My name is Oliver and I'm a 2 year old neutered male handsome Labrador Retriever/ Bull Terrier cross. I was found wandering in Yolo County. I'm a gorgeous brindle color with very distinctive facial markings but no one ever came looking for me. The people at the shelter liked me so much, they sent me to Rotts of Friends to find a perfect Forever Home. I'm very energetic and love to play and have fun! I'd make a perfect hiking or jogging partner. Bet I could run longer than you can! I'm a very friendly boy but I'm so bouncy I probably would do best in a home with older children or just adults.

I'm powerful and protective but very willing to please. I should have an owner who has had experience with big dogs. I'm very agile. I love water and playing ball! I don't play well with other dogs so I need to be in an "only dog" home. No dog parks, etc. I'm young - probably about 2 years old.

RHINO
BANDIT

BANDIT: STAFFORDSHIRE TERRIER 4 - 5 YEARS OLD, Male

My name is Bandit and I'm a 4 - 5 year old neutered male Staffordshire Terrier. I'm a super handsome boy as you can probably see in my picture. I love people I know and am super friendly although I'm wary of strangers until I get to know them. I was dumped as a pup. Then my dad adopted me when I was about one. I've spent the rest of the time with him having a blast but then he dumped me too when he got a serious girlfriend who didn't like me. So the good news is I know my commands - no, sit, down, shake, roll over, off, kennel (I'm crate trained), get in your bed, etc. I'm very smart and eager to learn new tricks! I'm an expert riding in a car! I've been on several 12 hour + car trips and never complained - just slept the whole time (I'd be a great companion for a long distance trucker :) ) I love to play ball although I was never really good about bringing it back. I'm housebroken and have spent my life living in an apartment and going on daily walks or hikes. I walk very well on leash. I've never spent any time around children so I should be in an adult only household and no cats or small dogs as I love to chase small fast moving critters. I'm hoping for a new Forever Home and a new Best Friend! I'm very healthy, up to date on my shots and microchipped. I come with free lifetime obedience training classes.

JOEY

JOEY: ROTTWEILER 1 YEAR OLD, Male

My name is Joey and I'm a handsome 1 year old neutered male Rottweiler. I've been around the block in my short year of life. My first owner decided they didn't want me anymore so they put me on Craig's List! Yikes! Then my second owner bought me, but had me only for a month and then he dumped me at Animal Control. After that Auntie Renee saw me there, took me in and now I have hope that my next owner will decide I'm a keeper! I'm very handsome and come from German Rottie lines. I'm somewhat food and toy aggressive so I need an adults only home with experienced Rottie owners. When I'm not eating or enthralled with my toys, I'm a people friendly guy. I'm very healthy, microchipped and up-to-date on my shots. I come with free lifetime obedience training classes. I'll be the perfect dog for the right owner!

PUDGE: ROTTWEILER 2 YEARS OLD, Male

My name is Pudge and I'm a 2 year old neutered male long haired Rottweiler. I was a stray, picked up by animal control but no one ever came to claim me. That's hard to believe with a dog as handsome as I am! Right now a wonderful volunteer, Ray, is taking me through the weekly obedience class so I'm learning my commands I'm very calm and sweet. I'm a little shy with men at first but I warm up quickly. I probably should be in a child free home. I'm very healthy, up to date on my shots and microchipped. I come with lifetime obedience training classes!

I'm missing my left front leg. It had to be removed when someone threw me out the window of a moving car! Ouch! Oh well, I'm as good with three as most dogs are with four legs! I'm very, very friendly! I get along well with everyone! I love to play ball. I would fit in perfectly with any kind of family - big, small, or older adults! I'm just a smilely, huggable girl!

FARLEY: LABRADOR RETRIEVER 5 YEARS OLD, Male

My name is Farley and I'm a 5 year old neutered male purebred yellow Labrador Retriever. Boy! Am I handsome! When I was at the shelter, the director loved me so much she let me hang out in her office during the day! I'm best described as even tempered, outgoing, very friendly and love to be with people. I also walk well on leash. Those are my plus points. On the other hand, I was attacked by another dog once and the event has left me not liking other dogs. Also no cats, please! I really need an experienced dog owner due to food aggression issues and a home with no small children; otherwise, I'm a nice active big lab that needs a job. I'll make a super new best friend for anyone looking to have me as their only pet.
