The majority of dogs rescued by the Cocomutt Shak will be up for adoption when they are finished being vetted, in good health and are of age to travel. If you or someone you know is interested in adopting a Cocomutt, please reach out to us for those who are currently available. Remember that Cocomutts are a unique breed of dog that have amazing traits, unusual mixes and some of the best personalities, but these are not always predictable as we often don’t know who the father was and or mother. Our volunteers and Vets are amazing at guessing ages and potential breed mixes, but these cannot be guaranteed.

Want more information about adopting a Cocomutt, please find our adoption album and application on our Facebook page, link below.

Not on Facebook, Feel free to email us with your questions and requests and we will be happy to send you information.

All costs are covered by Cocomutt Shak.  We meet you at the airport with the dog when you leave, to take care of the paperwork, and either the family or one of our volunteers will meet you at the other end to take the dog. What a great way to be a part of a dogs Happily Ever After. If you are interested in being a flight companion or want more information, please reach out at one of the following links.
