IMG 2771 (1) » We host an adoption event every two weeks at the Petco location on 2445 West Vista Way in Oceanside (every other Saturday).  This is a great venue to stop in and meet our event-friendly adoptable animals seeking forever homes.   The event is from 12:00 noon to 3:00, and the only times we are NOT there is if we are scheduled to be at one of our other quarterly mega adoption events throughout San Diego County.   If there is a dog you want to meet in person at one of our events, feel free to email info@lastchanceatlife.org to inquire if that dog will be AT the event.  We rely on volunteers to drive to/from and handle the dog for the event, and sometimes we just don’t have enough “hands” for all the dogs.  So if there’s someone in particular you want to meet in person, be sure to inquire ahead of time so we can be sure to have a volunteer bring that dog.  Please understand that some dogs do not show well in these types of adoption events — too many unfamiliar noises and smells just are too stressful for them, and we will not put them through that.  In those instances, you can set up an appointment for a one-on-one meet-and-greet at our adoption center – just email the adoption coordinators at “info@lastchanceatlife.org.”  


OrientationGeneric» Once a month we have volunteer orientation, this allows us to train you on how we operate and handle the animals. Once you attend an orientation you will train and work with the animals until you learn the commands and how we operate. Once you are comfortable and the staff feels you are ready you will be able to take on a shift. If you just want to be a foster, an advocate, or just come play with a dog; it is important you attend orientation. You will learn how to handle some of the special dogs, where all notes are made about any of the dogs, and learn any and all commands that we use. It is important to us that the dogs are well taken care of and everyone stays on the same page. if you will not be handling dogs only orientation is required.
