Adoptable Dogs

By some counts, more than 40 percent of Santa Cruz County households include at least one canine member. Maybe that’s because our community has a big heart — and is an ideal location for all sorts of human-canine adventures. Whether you seek an active pal or a senior for snuggles, find your future friend here.
