Review for Baja Animal Sanctuary, San Diego, CA, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

I recently adopted my 4th BAS dog (first one passed away). This is the only organization I will ever use for dog adoptions. The dogs are very well cared for and thoroughly checked out before being considered for adoption. They almost always are well socialized with other dogs (and often cats). The 2 week foster to adopt period is the best; there is always follow up and help with any issues and it is not limited to just the foster period. I feel comfortable in contacting the organization for help anytime and find them to be well informed with good suggestions. They truly care that the perfect home is found for every dog.

I have adopted 3 dogs from BAS and have been a volunteer for over a year. This organization only cares that the dog is in the appropriate home and provides that opportunity with the 2 week foster period before the final adoption. The dogs are very well socialized and have had all their vaccinations. The adoption applications are carefully screened and follow ups are done very shortly after the dog is placed. The volunteers are very helpful, friendly and knowledgeable and deeply care for all of the dogs. I would never adopt from another organization.

I have just adopted my 3rd dog from BAS. This is the only rescue organization from which I would adopt. My first dog was adopted 14 years ago but died in 2018. He was a smart funny guy with a terrier personality. We were devastated so I started volunteering for BAS, thus the 2 new dogs. It is such a positive experience and the dogs are healthy and well socialized. The volunteers are so helpful and knowledgeable; the most important thing is they truly care that the dog is placed in the appropriate home. The foster/adopt is such a great way to get to know the dog and make sure it’s the right fit for everyone. My Maxwell came from a hoarding situation so he has taken a lot of patience to allow him to work through his fears but I see so much improvement from 6 months ago. Our newest member (Willow) is a beautiful perfect larger dog who is friendly and well socialized. BAS provides support and help for as long as you need it, even after the final adoption. I highly recommend this organization for the kind and knowledgeable volunteers and for their devotion to helping dogs.
