Twiggy was found in Fresno literally starving to death.  At only 3 lbs, she can't afford to go without eating!  Twiggy is the ultimate lap- or purse-dog; she wants nothing more than to be carried or held all day long.  She would be the perfect companion for a retired person, or for someone who wants to bring their dog to the office.  If you'd like to meet sweet, cuddly Twiggy, please fill out an application at

How much does it COST to adopt?

Northern California Family Dog Rescue is a 501(c)(3) charitable organization dedicated to the rescue, rehabilitation & rehoming of homeless dogs.  Our standard adoption fees are $300-400 for adult dogs and $350-450 for puppies, and occasionally more for rare or purebred dogs.   Your adoption fee includes DA2PP, Bordetella & Rabies vaccines, deworming, flea treatment & heartworm preventative, spay/neuter surgery, microchip &  Wellness Exam, & helps cover the costs of food, transport, veterinary needs, shelter maintenance and staffing for every pup in our care.   We rely solely on adoption fees and donations to keep us going, so we ask that you be as generous as you can!
