Weekend plans all FIGured out... Have some fun with foster dad & the boys tonight, and hair of the dog tomorrow. You know what they say— Go Fig or go home. 🍻🐾 #happyweekend #adoptFig
Every dog that comes into the rescue is amazing and instantly loved to an arguably unhealthy degree— but once in a while, we meet a dog that is from another planet. Fig is one of those dogs.👽❤️ We are sickly obsessed with him because, well, he’s perfect. He’s dog friendly, people friendly, kid friendly, cat friendly, everything friendly! He’s just FRIENDLY. Fig is a 2 year old boxer mix who we scored from Ensenada. He was adopted from the shelter there and returned because he was “not brave enough.” The family wanted an intimidating guard dog, and while he may appear this at first glance, this guy is 35 lbs of love with a gentle, sweet soul. Despite quite possibly never being in a house before his current foster home, Fig is smart and has mastered both leash & potty training. He also understands that there are times for play and times for netflix and chill. And his most obvious feature and greatest selling point of all time— the underbite. Our founder and president @snisan said it best— “What. The. Faaaaaack.” It’s abnormally cute, as is everything about him. We spend half of our time with Fig repeating “he is not real” over and over again, but he is, and we are SO glad to not only know him, but to be able to find his perfect people. We are looking for the adopter of all adopters— someone as wonderful as he is. Someone to manage his Instagram account so the magic that is Fig can be spread far and wide. That’s not an actual requirement, but he’d go viral in a second flat. #getFIGGYwitit and get in line to meet this guy! You, like everyone else, will fall stupid in love. 💕 . Learn more about Fig and apply to adopt at www.theanimalpad.org.

Meet Mabel. This girl is sweet beyond belief and just wants to roll over and give you her belly, despite everything she has been through. When she first came to us, she was skin and bones— one of the most painfully malnourished dogs we had ever seen. She was living in Mexico with a rescuer who got in over her head and could not feed the dogs in her care, so our TJ rescue partner Rebeca stepped in to remove her from the situation and get her to us. The first thing she did when we greeted her in the lobby of our vet’s office? Plop down and roll over, submissively asking for belly rubs. This has since become her signature move with people new and old. After a little over 5 months in our care, Mabel’s emotional scars from her past are healing beautifully, and now gratefulness shines from every part of her. It’s so apparent in everything she does— from her couch cuddles, to the way she looks at people as they love on her. She knows and appreciates what she has that she didn’t before, and she finally trusts that things will never EVER be bad for her again. Next stop— a home to call her own, and a human to show her that she will always be worth it. ❤️ Even with all of Mabel’s great qualities, she still searches for her forever home! Please help us share Mabel, because there is no dog more deserving that this one right here. #adoptMabel
Look at this grown-up pup!! 😱 Bodhi was relinquished to us by a breeder because he needed an expensive Entropion eye surgery. That was almost a year ago! He’s now a part of the best family, a “rescue only” family, who always hoped to add a Goldendoodle to the mix but figured they would never have the chance. Until they saw our post... 💚💚💚 #adoptdontshop #repost @thebodhidoodle ・・・ I’m big, I’m beautiful, and I’m ADOPTED! That’s right, this beautiful beast found himself on an animal rescue site needing some eye surgery and a forever home!! When people say they can’t adopt because they can’t find the right dog, I’d just like to remind them that we are there - waiting for homes! If there are specific needs, you may need to be patient. But you may also get a handsome doodle like me!! If you think an adoption is in your future PLEASE FOLLOW, LIKE, and SUPPORT @theanimalpad - the most amazing rescue that ever was. I’m not biased, but they did find me my home 💛#rescuedogsofinstagram #rescuedog #theanimalpad #goldendoodle #doodlelove #dogstagram
Happy Adoption Day to our new favorite dog mom/dog daughter duo! 🎉 Kelsey is truly a special volunteer and supporter of TAP. We can’t put into words how much we love and appreciate this girl... We are better because she’s a part of our family. And today, her family has grown by 1! 💘 During a volunteer trip to @ellossonlarazon, Kelsey met Samy, and it was love at first sight. Sometimes you see a dog and just know they are meant to be yours forever— It’s a feeling and connection that can’t be explained, just experienced, and only if you’re lucky. Kelsey knew the moment she saw Samy, but the road to adoption was not an easy one. Our vet who had joined us on the trip listened to Samy’s breathing and delivered some scary news...pneumonia. A treatment plan was offered, which the shelter carried out, and we waited to see how she would respond, with every last finger and paw crossed. 🤞🐾 This fighter pup pulled through, and weeks later, has made a full recovery! The diagnosis and immediate treatment is what we believe saved her life. This, and a little bit of magic from mama. Kelsey hoped and prayed for Samy to get better every day. She even had a picture of Samy as her phone background and computer screensaver! She manifested this baby into health and into her life, and Samy must have felt that. ✨ Now, Samy is a happy and healthy little wiggle butt who is already so insanely loved. We are beyond happy to have had the opportunity to bring these 2 together. Can’t wait to obsessively stalk all of the puppy spam that is soon take over Kelsey’s feed. We love you, Kelsey and Samy. Welcome to the Dog Mom Club. #TAPalumni , baby! 💖
Ok TAP Fam, we desperately need your help! Bailey is in URGENT need of a foster home, and needs someone really special to step up for him. He came from a terrible situation and was extremely neglected, leaving him very insecure. Bailey’s behavior was aggressive and unpredictable when he first joined TAP, so he was enrolled in an extensive training and rehab program. Bailey thrived in training, and is ready to graduate to a foster home! He will need someone willing to work with him and continually reinforce his training, by teaming up with his current trainer and learning his routine/needs. If you are that special person for Bailey, please reach out to us. If you can’t foster, PLEASE help by sharing this post! Bailey has come so far and deserves every chance to be his best self. He needs us! Bailey is a full of energy, 2 year old male, 80 lb Lab and German Shepherd mix. He is neutered, completely house & crate trained, and has recently graduated with flying colors from doggie school! His training has turned Bailey into a confident young dog and has given him the opportunity to be the dog we knew he could be! Bailey is a fun pup who loves other dogs and people. He prefers and plays well with larger female dogs, with an occasional call out to be gentle. He hasn’t been around cats, but would most likely do best in a home without them. All Bailey wants to do is take his human on long walks, play endless games of ball, and show off his true lapdog nature by cuddling you wherever and whenever possible. If you are looking for a hiking buddy, he would probably fall in love with you forever! He exudes eternal happiness and zooms around the yard playing with his people! He enjoyed his obedience school and loves to work and train with treats. With his energy and excitable traits, a home without kids would be the best option for him. He may also be more suitable as the only dog. If you are an experienced dog owner who can commit to giving Bailey regular walks, exercise time, and continued training— we need you more than ever. Love and patience will go a long way with this guy! Please help us help Bailey. 💚
Ida’s puppies, Bonnie & Clyde, are 6 weeks old and the chunkiest monkeys. 🙊 Not sure how their little legs can support their massive bodies, but it’s equal parts impressive and adorable. Mostly seen here in relax mode— exhausted from being this cute all the time. Constantly being picked up, carried around, talked to in baby voice and told how perfect you are...it’s hard out here for a pup. 💚 #bonnieandclyde
You’re invited! 🐾 Ellos Son La Razon is a no-kill shelter in Ensenada - the only of its kind - and gets little to no rescue help, apart from TAP. Visiting and volunteering here is heartbreaking, beautiful, and absolutely life-changing; It is something that we want as many people to experience as possible. With a total of 250+ dogs and a staff that you could count on one hand, the shelter is in desperate need of help, always. We will be taking our 4th TAP Volunteer Trip to ESLR and want you to be a part of this! You will not regret making this trip and meeting these magical dogs. While we search for foster and adoptive homes for every last one of them, we can make a short-term difference, by giving these dogs a really great day. 💚 We are doing things a little different this time around, and registration fee will include chartered transportation and lunch buffet! See link in bio for details, and to sign up! *Limited stops available.
