Silicon Valley Dog Rescues

Silicon Valley Dogs strongly believes in adopting rescue dogs. We encourage you to look through the adoptable dogs in the sites listed below before you consider buying one. If you are looking for a specific breed of dog, it is absolutely possible to find one through a shelter or rescue. For any type of breed of dog, there is most likely a rescue organization for it. If you do have your heart set on buying a puppy from a breeder, make sure you do your homework and find a reputable one! Puppy Mills are awful places, and you should avoid them at all costs.
