General Questions

How can I help?

What do you need?

We are always in need of cleaning products, small blankets, and toys for our dogs. All of our dogs and cats are on grain-free food that is minimally processed and as close to human grade as possible.

We welcome any donations that you may feel our dogs and cats in our care will need. Anything that we cannot use for whatever reason is donated to our local animal shelter.

How do I volunteer?

Our volunteer program is currently being worked on and until then we do welcome help throughout the day with walks, cleaning and socializing. Come in and sign in. Check back with our website on any updates regarding our volunteer opportunities.

AHWF will be glad to work with you if you are currently in a probation program or need a number of services hours to complete for school credit.

I found a dog/cat/bird/squirrel/there are ducks in my pool can you take them in?

We do not take in stray or lost animals. Please be respectful to the limits that we have to impose as it is an expense that we cannot physically nor financially maintain.

The best thing you can do is to take the animals to a shelter where it may have a greater chance of being located by its owner. For any feral animals that belong in the wild, contact Wildlife Preservation.

Adoption FAQ

I submitted my application. When will I hear back?

You will get a response acknowledging that your application has been received. Due to the high volume of applicants and inquiries received on a daily basis, if you are believed to be the best fit possible you should get a response within 2-3 business days.

I am out of the country/out of state and would like to adopt.

We adopt all over the country and have also had many successful adoptions to Canadian residence. We do not ship any of our dogs nor do we admit our dogs to ride in cargo. Potential adopters must be willing to make the trip out to our location is Sherman Oaks California to meet with us and arrange transportation for their trip back wit the dog.
