Adoption Application

Lionel’s Legacy senior dog rescue is located in San Diego, CA. We primarily adopt to families in Southern California but will consider out of area adoptions if all requirements are met. All adoptions begin with a non-binding application, home safety check, and require all adopting family members to meet the dog you are interested in adopting. If there are any pets in the home we recommend at least one pet attends the initial meet. Adopters agree to a 2 week trial sniffing period in which all necessary food, supplies, and medical care are provided. If for any reason the adoption does not work out, adopters must agree to make arrangements to transport the animal back to San Diego, CA.
