"Touching lives, one animal at a time"
The Lovejoy Foundation, Inc.
As of October 30th, 2020 Procedures and Protocols for Covid 19 2020
We hold our weekend adoption events on Saturday from 11am to 5pm no appointment needed but you must bring your completed application in hand as we do not have time to print them during the busy event. Check our facebook page for updates for Sunday beyond our shot clinic from noon to 2pm. Each Sunday the protocol will change depending on the amount of adoptions happening on Saturday. So it is not set that we hold an adoption event each Sunday please check our facebook page to see what the plan for Sunday is each week. Our new dogs and puppies are posted each week by Friday mornings. We are understaffed presently so they are not always updated each week anywhere but on our facebook page until we have more hands to help with the postings right now. So if you do not see any new dogs or puppies please once again visit our facebook page. We look forward to seeing you at our Saturday adoption day. Thank you for your interest in wanting to adopt from The Lovejoy Foundation, Inc.
Our adoption process starts with an application, a face to face interview, then a home check. We want all family members to be present during the adoption process as well as any other dogs in the home. Each adopter is matched with the best fit for the family or applicant as well as the needs of the dog or puppy of interest. As sometimes we guide applicants to a better fit. Our goal is that when you come to us for a new family member we make that match the best of the best.
Your adoption fee includes spay or neuter, microchip, Rabies, all three rounds of DHPP and Bordetella. We treat for parasites and give you two hours of free in home training with one of our amazing trainers on staff. Our adoption fee is $450. We offer a $50 discount for seniors and also Veterans.
We do not usually adopt outside of the Southern California but each situation can present circumstances that allow an adoption outside of the area to be considered. All dogs/puppies are required to have a collar and Lovejoy Foundation ID tag on them the day they leave for their new forever home. As stated in the contract collar and ID is to remain on the dog or puppy at all times.
