Adoption Application

DISCLAIMER – There are no guarantees made, expressed or implied, that any person completing an application to adopt a dog through Lhasa Happy Homes Rescue, Inc. (LHH), will automatically be approved. All adoptions are subject to acceptance based on a review process that includes, but is not limited to;  potential dog meet ‘n greet, reference check(s), interview and home visit.  The decision to place any dog(s) in an adoptive home is determined by the review of such information, and adoption applications may be denied without disclosing the reason(s). As a general rule, LHH does not adopt the Lhasa Apso breed to families with children under 8 years old because the breed is not typically good with young children.

You may also see some dogs listed for an extended period of time.  This may happen for various reasons:  when a dog has an ailment and is still in treatment; behavioral issue that is minor, but being worked on; has not found the right fit or other.  Our goal is to make the perfect match and your patience is appreciated.

We typically do not adopt out of state.  During the COVID 19 pandemic, we will not be adopting out of the SoCal area.  We will open up adopting throughout CA once we are back to doing our Sunday Mobile Events in Santa Monica.  Sorry for the inconvenience.
