KIngstonClick on Kingston's picture to see his video on San Diego 6-CW Animal House

Name: Kingston
Breed: Maltese
Age: 11 years old
Sex: Neutered Male
Organization: Maltese & More Rescue
Phone: (858) 349-5918
Website: http://www.adoptapet.com/maltese-more-rescue/

This is our last week of Animal House, and one of the things I'll miss the most is being able to give older dogs like this, the extra publicity they need to find a home. Kingston is an 11-year-old senior Maltese who was dumped at a local shelter by his previous owners in horrific condition. Maltese and More Rescue saw beyond his impaired sight, infected ears and eyes, and lack of hearing, and took him into their foster program. After receiving the much-needed medical care he deserved, he's now in tip-top shape and ready to find someone who will love and keep him for the rest of his life. This tiny 7-pound man is the perfect lap-dog, and would be ideal for a senior citizen living in a quiet home environment. Kingston is an excellent companion! He loves to cuddle and adores having his chin rubbed. He enjoys short periods of basking in the sun, and being outside in the fresh air with his foster family. He's a quiet little guy and very easy to have around because he really enjoys napping quite and doesn't require long walks. Kingston is vaccinated, microchipped, neutered, and qualifies for the Senior to Senior program, giving senior citizens a break on the adoption fee.

Breed: Domestic Short Hair
Age: 4 Years Old
Sex: Spayed Female
Organization: Friends of Cats, Inc.
Phone: (619) 561-0361
Website: www.friendsofcats.org

Bonnie has been at Friends of Cats for about 6 months. Her prior owners unfortunately developed an allergy toward her and couldn't keep her. Bonnie went through many emotional changes when she first arrived at Friends of Cats, but with lots of care and love she is now extremely affectionate and has become a staff favorite! Fun Fact: Bonnie is such a favorite at Friends of Cats that you can always find her strolling around the office, or curled up on a staff members' desk. The adoption fee for Bonnie is $75. Bonnie has tested negative for diseases, is current on vaccines, microchipped, and neutered. All adoptions at Friends of Cats come with a free veterinary visit within 10 days of adoption. Friends of Cats is a no-kill shelter for cats located in El Cajon dedicated to providing shelter and medical care to abandoned cats and those whose owners are unable to care for them. The Shelter houses over 270 cats at any given time. About half of the cats at the shelter are adoptable and are looking to find their new home.

Breed: Domestic Long Hair
Age: 3 Years Old
Sex: Neutered Male
Organization: Friends of Cats, Inc.
Phone: (619 561-0361
Website: www.friendsofcats.org

Rocky is the Friends of Cat volunteer pick of the week! He's a shelter favorite and can always be found curled up on someone's lap. Rocky's is extremely affectionate, and loves people. Rocky was pulled from an overcrowded municipal shelter when they ran out of room, so there's not a lot of history about him. Rocky is about three years old and prefers a home without other cats, but as long as he has people to love, he'll be a happy boy! The adoption fee for Rocky is $75. He's been tested for diseases, vaccinated, microchipped, and neutered. Plus, he comes with a free vet visit. Friends of Cats is a no-kill shelter for located in El Cajon that provides shelter and medical care to abandoned cats and those whose owners are unable to care for them.

DetrellClick on Detrell's picture to see his video on San Diego 6-CW Animal House (and Detrell was also featured on the Mighty 1090!)

Name: Detrell (aka Mr. D)
Breed: Poodle/terrier mix
Age: 10 months old
Sex: Neutered Male
Organization: Animal Rescuers Without Borders
Phone: (619) 977-3593
Website: ARWOB.org

Today we're not in search of an adopter as much as we are a temporary foster home for this cutie-pie. Detrell, also known as Mr. D, was rescued with his five siblings back in August. All were adopted except Mr. D, because he'd developed pneumonia. After four months of treatment, he's finally doing better. You'd never know anything is wrong with him as he's so active and happy, no matter what he's doing…whether it's resting in his crate, laying on his dog bed, or being in the yard playing non-stop with his dog friends. He's goofy, yet well-behaved, and perfect with cats, dogs, children, and adults. He can be fostered in a home with or without other dogs...there's nothing contagious about him, but he won't be up for adoption until he gets over this cough. It usually hits him first thing in the morning, or after exercising. He takes medicine twice a day, eats with his food bowl elevated, and his bed is angled slightly upward to prevent aspiration. The foster home he's in right now has SIX dogs, so it's impossible for Mr. D to get attention. This 25-pound puppy needs someone to snuggle with. So if you'd be willing to foster this puppy, or foster with the option of adopting, please go to ARWOB.org or call (619) 977-3593.

BubbaClick on Bubba's picture to see his video on San Diego 6-CW Animal House

Name: Bubba
Pet ID: 23443
Breed: Boxer/Pit Bull
Age: 5 years old
Sex: Neutered Male
Organization: El Cajon Animal Shelter
Phone: (619) 441-1580

You don't meet a lot of Bubbas these days, but the name just evokes the image of a good ol' boy…a man's man...deba friendly guy who'd love to hang out on the couch with you and watch some football and eat nachos. Well, that's pretty much Bubba's personality, too. This handsome Boxer/Pittie mix is very well-trained and intelligent. He knows "sit", "down", "shake", and he's totally housebroken. His history isn't a mystery as his owners turned him into the shelter when they moved away. Now we're trying to find him the good family he deserves. Bubba's about 5 years old…a great age because he's still so fun, without being overly energetic. He gets along well with other big dogs, and he'd do best in a family where the kids are a little older and considerate. He needs a home with a yard, as he LOVES to play fetch. He needs someone to play with him, and a daily walk would be great. Please come visit Bubba at the El Cajon Animal Shelter, 1275 N. Marshall Street. He acts very unsure when new people stare at him in his kennel, so be sure to ask the staff to take him out into the play yard where you can see the real Bubba.

Chloe and NefertitiClick on Kaia's picture to see her video on San Diego 6-CW Animal House!

Name: Kaia
Breed: Cattle dog/Shepherd
Age: 1 year old
Sex: Spayed Female
Organization: The Rescued Dog
Phone: (619) 356-3390
Website: TheRescuedDog.org

Talk about a show-stopper. Check out the eyeliner around these striking ice-blue eyes. Beautiful Kaia is a cattle dog mix looking for a fun and energetic family to call her own. The Rescued Dog put her into one of their local foster homes after finding her at the Humane Society of Imperial County. Kaya is about 1 year old, and weighs in at 30 pounds, full grown. This fun little girl is active and sporty, and ready for any adventure. She generally does well walking on the leash, although she does get a little excited when she sees other dogs. She's a friendly girl who just wants to say hi to everyone she sees. Kaia is also quite a love bug, and loves to snuggle with her humans. She hasn't had a lot of training so far, but she's really smart and willing to learn. Taking her to basic training will be a great way for her and her new family to bond. If you and your family are looking for a fun canine sidekick to join you on your adventures, go to TheRescuedDog.org to fill out an adoption application, and if you're not ready to make a long-term commitment at this time, please consider becoming a temporary foster family for a dog like Kaia.

SophieClick on Sophie's picture to see her video on San Diego 6-CW Animal House (and CLICK HERE to see her TV Debut)

Name: Sophie
Breed: Maltese
Age: 8 years old
Sex: Spayed Female
Organization: Maltese & More Rescue
Phone: (858) 349-5918
Website: http://www.adoptapet.com/maltese-more-rescue/

This is Sophie's second time on TV. We didn't have any luck with her first debut as she was so scared and shaky that she probably didn't appeal to a lot of people. It's true that this little 6-pound, purebred Maltese is shy and frightens easily when there's a lot of noise and activity going on around her, but if you could only see her in her foster home, you'd see another side of her…the one her foster mom has fallen in love with. In a quiet home environment with a retired person, Sophie is as sweet and loving as can be. She's completely house-trained and walks like a dream on a leash. She's easy to bathe, and just so happy to be by your side. It's true that children and other dogs are a little overwhelming for her, but if you enjoy a quiet lifestyle, you couldn't ask for a better companion. She's affectionate and respectful, with a soft bark, which she uses sparingly. Sophie is a happy, healthy, 8 year old, which is considered a "senior" in dog years, so she qualifies for the Senior to Senior program, which means a discounted adoption fee for a senior who wants to adopt her. Please contact Maltese And More at 858-349-5918, or you can go to http://www.adoptapet.com/maltese-more-rescue/.

TrudieClick on Trudie's picture to see her video on San Diego 6-CW Animal House

Name: Trudie
Breed: Border Terrier/Fox Terrier
Age: 2 years old
Sex: Spayed Female
Organization: Animal Rescuers Without Borders
Phone: (619) 977-3593
Website: ARWOB.org

Trudie is a very sweet but under-socialized girl who wound up at a shelter after being relinquished by her owners, along with two other dogs. Fortunately, Animal Rescuers Without Borders pulled her from the shelter so that she could go into a foster home where someone could work with her on becoming better socialized. Trudie is good with other dogs and cats, and she warms up to women once she gets comfortable with them, but she's very unsure of men. A family with teenagers might be good for her, but toddlers would probably scare her too much. Once she trusts someone, she'll seek them out for attention. Trudie loves getting belly-rubs from people she knows, and she'll gently touch you with her paw to remind you not to stop petting her…she'll thank you with kisses. She does well in the car and on a leash, also she's crate-trained. She's very smart and well-behaved and will make a good dog-park visitor. Whether you're interested in adopting Trudie forever, or just becoming the temporary foster who would be willing to teach her the ropes and pull her out of her shell until a forever-family can be found, go to ARWOB.org to fill out an application.

Website: http://www.adoptapet.com/maltese-more-rescue/

Chloe and Nefertiti are a bonded pair of beautiful Maltes.e These two girls are a joy to be around. Both are sweet natured, friendly and loving. Neither of these sweet girls show their age and still like to run and chase each other around the house or yard. These girls are very bonded and will look for the other if not around. They are content to sleep in a dog bed together or if you let them on your bed. A little on the chucky side they could do with someone who will watch their food intake, as they never turn down their food or a tasty snack. Both dogs get along very well with other dogs as well as cats. They are potty pad trained but will go outside if taken regularly. They ride beautifully in the car and love to go on outings about town. Chloe is the more independent of the two and is content to just be around and is very friendly and affectionate. Chloe likes to play and have her belly rubbed. 12 lbs of affection NefertitI, Titi for short (the smaller of the two) is like a little shadow and follows her foster mom from room to room. She enjoys sitting on your lap and being pampered. Just what you would expect after being named after an Egyptian Queen. 9 lbs of snuggles Whoever adopts these two beauties is hitting the jackpot as you couldn't ask for a nicer pair of sisters to share your life with. They will only be adopted TOGETHER Spayed, microchipped, vaccinated, dental completed

HarryClick on Harry's picture to see his video on San Diego 6-CW Animal House

Name: Harry
Breed: Schnauzer mix
Age: 2 years old
Sex: Neutered Male
Organization: Animal Rescuers Without Borders
Phone: (619) 977-3593
Website: ARWOB.org

Meet Harry, a 13-pound Schnauzer mix who is just a friendly little guy who loves everyone and everything...dogs and cats, alike. He was an owner relinquishment, so we have good background info on this boy. Harry is housetrained and he's currently being crated trained in his foster home. He's not a barky kind of dog, and if we had to pick something bad to say about him, I guess it would be that he pulls a little on the leash when he walks. He's good when it comes to riding in the car and he enjoys being a lap dog. Harry is up to date on all his vaccinations and medical care. He's just a super good dog who is a little scared and timid when he first meets new people, but that's not unusual when a dog is recently given up by his family and can't quite grasp what is going on. But hopefully, once he finds a forever family, he'll be back to his old self. Contact Animal Rescuers Without Borders if you'd be interested in permanently adopting this handsome boy or even temporarily fostering him…they're desperate for more fosters. Go to ARWOB.org for an application.

JazClick on Jaz's picture to see his video on San Diego 6-CW Animal House

Name: Jaz (pronounced Jazz)
Breed: Spaniel mix
Age: 6 months old
Sex: Neutered Male
Organization: The Rescued Dog
Phone: (619) 356-3390
Website:TheRescuedDog.org

Meet Jaz, an adorable spaniel mix puppy, looking for a forever family who will show him the ways of the world. He's a sweet little guy with a lot of potential! At about 6 months of age, Jas is just now getting socialized with new people and other dogs. He needs slow introductions to people and dogs, but once he feels comfortable with everybody, he can be very snuggly. He also seems to gain confidence when he's around confident dogs, so The Rescued Dog would like to place Jas in a home with another dog who can show him the ropes. According to his foster family, Jas is a smart puppy who learns fast. Training this guy will be fun and easy! He's working on his leash training, and he is already crate trained and house trained…big plusses! He can be very playful but he knows how to calm down and enjoy some snuggle time with his people. Jas weighs about 14-pounds and could top out at 25 to 30 pounds, full grown. If you'd like meet Jas, please fill out an application at TheRescuedDog.org, and an adoption coordinator will be in touch to schedule a no-pressure meet and greet.

Lil and ChuckieClick on Lil and Chuckie's picture to see their video on San Diego 6-CW Animal House!

Name:
Lil & Chuckie
Breed:
Terrier Mix
Age:
10 week old puppies
Sex: Lil:
Spayed Female, Chuckie: Neutered Male
Organization:
Maltese & More Rescue
Phone:
(858) 349-5918
Website:
http://www.adoptapet.com/maltese-more-rescue/

Lil is a spunky, fun-loving 10-week-old Terrier puppy who loves to play chase and wrestle with her brothers and foster siblings. She does well on car rides, and she's potty-pad trained. Lil has a great personality that makes her foster family laugh. She's a diamond in the ruff for sure! Her brother Chuckie is a lively guy who keeps his foster family on their toes! He's also trained to use a potty-pad, and loves a good game of chase. He likes chilling out with a Bully stick, or fetching a ball. Chuckie does well in the car, and will make a great family pet. Lil and Chuckie were abandoned along with their mom and two siblings who have already been adopted. They weigh 4.6-pounds and have beautiful coats. These puppies have been hand raised in a foster home with a ton of affection and love, making them very well rounded family dogs with no fears. Due to their puppy energy level, they'd be most happy in an active home with people who will take them on social outings and walks. Lil and Chuckie are NOT a bonded pair, and can definitely be adopted separately. Do a google search for Maltese And More Rescue and fill out an adoption application on their website.

ChiquitaClick on Chiquita's picture to see her video on San Diego 6-CW Animal House

Name: Chiquita
Breed: Chihuahua
Age: 6 years old
Sex: Spayed Female
Organization: Spay Neuter Action Project (SNAP)
Phone: (619)-525-3047
Website: SNAP-SanDiego.org
Direct link to Chiquita's info (for website): http://www.adoptapet.com/pet/16860301-encinitas-san-diego-california-chihuahua-mix

Chiquita is 6-year-old Chihuahua who wound up at a County shelter as a stray. She came in with another dog who was lucky to be adopted, but sadly that left Chiquita behind. She's now in a Friends of SNAP foster home, where she has proven to be a very low-maintenance lady. Her foster family says she's full of gratitude and attitude! She absolutely loves everyone...men and women alike; she has no food, treat or toy aggression what-so-ever, but she can be a little bossy around other female dogs. She'd probably be fine as part of a one-dog family, though she's fine with other dogs. She already knows how to use a doggy door, and she absolutely loves the beach! You can fill out an adoption application for Chiquita by going to SNAP-SanDiego.org. While you're there, you can learn more about the SNAP Neuter Scooter, fixing pets in San Diego for the past 14 years. You can also find out about upcoming adoption events, and the screening of the movie "Dog by Dog", coming up in April. They also have lots of volunteer opportunities, and could use more foster homes to help them save dogs and cats, just like Chiquita.

BobbyClick on Bobby's picture to see his video on San Diego 6-CW Animal House

Name: Bobby
Breed: Long hair Chiweenie
Age: 2 years old
Weight: 10 years old
Sex: Neutered Male
Organization: Animal Rescuers Without Borders
Phone: 619-977-3593
Web: ARWOB.org

Today we're reaching out for a forever adopter, or a temporary foster. Animal Rescuers Without Borders is desperate for new foster families. Bobby is a super sweet dog who was rescued from the Mexicali dog pound. He probably came in as a stray. ARWOB was able to rescue him and a few other dogs. Sometimes Bobby he tries to act like he's a tough guy, but because of his size, it only turns out looking funny. He loves to play with dogs....big and small...and he's even okay with cats. So far, he hasn't had accidents in the house, but there's a good chance he's not housetrained yet. He is being crate-trained and seems to be pretty good with it. Bobby is perfect with both adults and children, and since he likes going on car rides, he may be an excellent companion to take out on the town. Even though he's 10-years-old, he jumps really high when he's super excited and happy. His Ideal home would be with a family, and a yard. A stay-at-home mom or retiree may have the extra time to work on his training. Go to ARWOB.org to fill out an application for Bobby, or call them now at 619-977-3593.

It's truly amazing how far Angelica has come in just a couple of weeks. Maltese And More rescue found her at the Hesperia shelter, afraid, withdrawn, and in terrible physical condition. She's made an amazing transformation with careful grooming, healthy food, proper vet care, and an abundance of love from her caretakers.

Age: 1 year old
Sex: Spayed Female

Phone: (619) 356-3390
Website: TheRescuedDog.org

Are you looking for a fun-loving pug to light up your life? Meet Freya, a fun, happy girl looking for a forever family to keep her active. She has a loving personality complimented by a ridiculously cute under-bite and crooked tail. According to her foster family, Freya walks 3 to 4 times per day around the neighborhood with her foster brother. She's good on the leash but likes to "stop and smell the roses".. Freya loves to explore the trails or beach, and rides very well in the car, in search of new adventures. Typical of a pug, Freya loves food, and may have a tendency to gain weight easily…so regular exercise will be important. Once the action is over, get ready to snuggle with this lap-dog! This 24-pound love-bug just adores people and wiggles her entire body to greet old and new friends. She's good with dogs but prefers the company of those her size or smaller. She sleeps through the night in her crate, but given the opportunity, she'll crawl into your bed and claim your pillow. If you'd like to meet Freya, please fill out an application at TheRescuedDog.org and an adoption coordinator will be in touch to schedule a meet and greet.

ZoeyClick on Zoey's picture to see her video on San Diego 6-CW Animal House

Name: Zoey
Breed: Staffordshire Terrier/Greyhound mix
Age: 1 year old
Sex: Spayed Female
Organization: Labradors and Friends
Phone: (619) 990-7455
Website: LabradorsAndFriends.org

Zoey is a sweet and loving girl who has a good mixture of puppy energy and the desire to lounge on the couch and cuddle. She came to Labradors and Friends Rescue with a broken back leg after being hit by a car, so as a young puppy she had to be put on crate rest to heal. Now that she's all better, she loves to romp and play with her people and other dogs. Zoey is a Greyhound/Staffie mix who prefers the company of male dogs who are similar to her size. She can be a little shy and needs some encouragement in some new situations, but she's as sweet and affectionate as can be. Zoey could live with a young male dog of medium to large size, and she's also good with children, however she should not be placed in a home with cats. She's good on the leash, house trained, crate trained, and knows most of her basic obedience commands. She loves to romp around and play with her toys, but she'll hop in your lap when it's time to settle down for the day. If you'd like to meet Zoey to find out if she'd be a good match for you, please fill out an adoption application at LabradorsAndFriends.org.

Sex: Spayed Female
Organization: Animal Rescuers Without Borders
Phone: 619-977-3593
Website: ARWOB.org

I never cease to be amazed by the wonderful animals available for adoption from our local shelters and rescue agencies. This 4 month old Chiweenie is just the best. Lucy is a social butterfly who loves everyone and everything she's ever met, including other dog and cats. She's not barky or yappy...just a typical happy and playful puppy. She'll be a great family dog for someone who doesn't mind working on potty-training her so she can be a well-behaved indoor dog. Her foster family is already in the process of crate-training her. She's about 4-pounds now, but has the potential to reach a whopping 8 to 12 pounds.


ScratchClick on Scrach's picture to see his video on San Diego 6-CW Animal House

Name: Scratch
Breed: Domestic Short Hair
Age: 3 years old
Sex: Neutered Male
Organization: Friends of Cats, Inc.
Phone: (619) 561-0361
Website: www.Friendsofcats.org

Meet Scratch…a 3-year-old kitty who has been at Friends of Cats shelter since August 2016. His previous family turned him into the shelter when they moved, and sadly, nearly 7 months later, he's still there. Scratch is an extremely sweet and playful boy, who loves to sit in laps. He'd be a great companion for the right family, and is so patiently waiting for his forever home! He got his name, by the way, because when he plays, he looks like he's scratching at the air. His adoption fee is just $75, and like all adoptable cats at the shelter, he's tested for diseases, vaccinated, microchipped and neutered. Plus, he comes with a free vet visit! Friends of Cats is a no-kill shelter in El Cajon dedicated to providing shelter and medical care to abandoned cats and those whose owners are unable to care for them. There are 270 cats there at any given time. About half are adoptable, and the other half are in their sanctuary. Please come visit Scratch and the rest of the kitties at the shelter at 15587 Olde Highway 80 in El Cajon, just east of Lake Jennings Park Road. They're open Tuesday through Sunday 10 to 3:30.

Hi my name is Petey, because my foster Dad says I look like the dog from "Little Rascals". I'm looking for a new best friend to play ball with! Just throw the ball and I'll be your best friend, and I'm fast, you should see me go. You know I'm the kind of guy who likes to stay active, like go for a run, play on the beach, chase the ball (see there's that ball again). I like to check people out when I first meet them, because life wasn't so easy for me before, and not everyone was nice to me like they are now. In fact, my friend Tess and I where left inside a crate in an alley, and it was soooo hot we almost died. A really nice lady found us just in time, and took us to a shelter. We were on TV and everything, but it was pretty scary, so luckily Maltese & More took us and put us into a foster home. So, if you pass the test, I'll be your snuggle bunny for life. My foster mom says I'm pretty good in the house...better then when I got there...I really like a schedule and I'm learning good manners. I weigh about 13-pounds, full-grown. I'm not a picky eater so I'm easy to please!!! So if you're looking for a fun guy to do things with...pick ME! Just contact Maltese & More Rescue and tell them that Petey sent you cause you want to be my new family!


NanaClick on Nana's picture to see her video on San Diego 6-CW Animal House

Name: Nana
Breed: Aussie/Akita
Age: 3 years old
Sex: Spayed Female
Organization: No Wagging Tail Left Behind
Phone: (858) 442-6585
Website: www.nwtlb.org

Nana is a 3-year-old, Aussie/Akita mix. Her previous family had too many dogs, and had to relinquish a few. Nana's now with a San Diego family until her forever home can be found. Nana has a lot of energy and enjoys hiking, dog beach, and dog parks. She'll need regular exercise, as she could stand to lose a few pounds. While she's super submissive to her foster mom, she sometimes acts a little bossy around other dogs, however, she has great recall, and stops when corrected. Nana will be fine as an only dog because she loves humans and enjoys playing with her stuffy toys. Nana quickly learns the house rules, she's completely housebroken, and not a barker. She's crate trained but prefers lounging on the couch. She'll shed, but regular brushing keeps her hair under control. Nana is a bit of a counter-surfer, and doesn't like to share her meals. She tends to guard her food, but she's starting to realize she doesn't need to be protective anymore. Nana hasn't been tested yet with cats or small children, but she's an excellent dog, overall, and we think she'll adjust nicely to family life. Contact No Wagging Tail Left Behind at www.nwtlb.org to fill out an application for Nana.

Name: Zeus (ID#23340)
Breed: Pit Bull
Age: 10-years-old
Sex: Neutered Male
Organization: El Cajon Animal Shelter, 1275 N. Marshall Street
Phone: (619) 441-1580

Zeus is a sweet ol' guy who's looking for a loving person or family to stay with for the rest of his life. He's a 10-year-old Pittie at the El Cajon Animal Shelter, which means he has a lot of competition when it comes to finding a home because there are so many younger dogs at the shelter, without the stigma of being a pit bull. Someone cropped his ears at some point in his life to make him look intimidating…but you can rest assured, he has a gentle nature and a heart of gold. The staff loves him and they all agree that he's the perfect gentleman. He sits nicely on command, and wouldn't dream of jumping up on anyone. He likes going for walks, and loves everyone he meets, including other dogs. He deserves to spend time with someone who will love and adore him, maybe even a family with considerate older kids. Zeus is already housetrained, so if you can provide him with a comfy bed, he'll make an excellent indoor companion. Come visit and play with Zeus at the El Cajon Animal Shelter, 1275 N. Marshall Street, 619-441-1580…open Tuesday through Saturday. His adoption fee is just $30, but only for someone looking for a best friend.

Meet Calvin, a sweet and handsome schnauzer-poodle mix who was pulled from the Humane Society of Imperial County and placed into The Rescued Dog's foster program. Calvin is a loving, cuddly guy who adores people. He also loves meeting other dogs when he is out on his walks. He sometimes pulls a little on his leash because he wants to play with them.

Calvin is fully house trained and likes his crate. He has an adventurous side, and enjoys his trips to the beach! He'll be fun to bring to the park or to dog-friendly restaurants. He didn't seem to know what a toy was at first, but now he loves playing with his stuffed animals. According to his foster family, he's never been destructive, and he loves the blow dryer! Calvin is about 2 years old and weighs 20-pounds, full grown.

Organization: Animal Rescuers Without Borders
Phone: 619-977-3593
Website: ARWOB.org

Valentina is a 3-year-old, 13-pound Cairn Terrier with tan wirey hair. This shaggy little girl was rescued from the streets of Tijuana about a month ago and is the sweetest little girl. Happy, loving and appreciative of this second chance she's been given. She's great with dogs, cats and children. Valentina is crate trained, but she's not yet housebroken. We're hoping we can find her an adoptive family who can work with her to train her to be an indoor dog, or at least a foster family who would step up and help with her training so that she can find a good permanent home. Valentina is not very vocal and does very well in the car. She's healthy, spayed, microchipped and up to date on all her vaccinations and medical care. If you'd like to meet Valentina to see if she's a dog you'd like to adopt or foster, please fill out an application at ARWOB.org and a volunteer will get back with you to schedule a meet and greet.

Haven
Breed: Greyhound
Age: 2 years old
Sex: Spayed Female
Organization: Greyhound Adoption Center, 4821 Dehesa Rd, El Cajon
Phone: (877) HoundSavers

Haven is a 2-year old ex-racing greyhound residing at the Greyhound Adoption Center in El Cajon. She arrived with seven other Greyhound athletes, straight from the racetrack. Haven is a friendly, active, exuberant, sometimes talkative little greyhound who's clearly enjoying her new retired life! Haven can't live in a home with cats but would do well in a home with dogs of any size, and children of any age. All dogs from the Center have a complete medical evaluation, are spayed or neutered, vaccinated, microchipped, and undergo a dental cleaning. They're then fully evaluated for temperament and personality as well as tested with cats, small dogs, and young children before being profiled for a home. Please come out and meet Haven and 40 other Greyhounds THIS Sunday, February 19th from 1-to-3 pm, when the Greyhound Adoption Center hosts an Open House and tour of their facility. They're at 4821 Dehesa Road in El Cajon. This is a great opportunity to visit with volunteers and learn more about greyhound rescue, rehab, adoption, and volunteer opportunities.

CutieClick on Cutie's picture to see her video on San Diego 6-CW Animal House!

Name:
Cutie
Breed: Lab/Terrier mix
Age: 8 month old puppy
Sex: Neutered Male
Organization: Animal Rescuers Without Borders
Phone: (619) 977-3593
Website: ARWOB.org

Cutie was rescued along with his siblings all of whom look mostly like Labrador retrievers…. Cutie is the odd-man-out who looks a little more like a terrier. He's very sweet with all people, including children. He also loves other dogs, and he's okay with most cats…as long as they don't run. Cutie does well in his crate and traveling in the car. Obviously, since he's just a puppy, he's not completely house trained. But he just got into a foster home where he seems to be excellent in his crate, so he is likely to do well in house-training. Cutie is quiet unless he hears other dogs bark, or if he's in a chaotic environment. He would be great for off-leash dog parks or hiking, but he also shows signs of being an excellent couch potato. Go to ARWOB.org for an adoption application.

AutumnClick on Autumn's picture to see her video on San Diego 6-CW Animal House

Name: Autumn
Breed: Cocker Spaniel
Age: 5 years old
Sex: Spayed Female
Organization: The Rescued Dog
Phone: (619) 356-3390
Website: TheRescuedDog.org

Autumn has had a tough start to life, so let's give her the happy ending she deserves. Autumn was severely neglected. She was adopted as a puppy and immediately relegated to the backyard where she spent all of her time, alone and neglected. For 5 years, she was fed food scraps, and denied vet care. Over time, Autumn developed severe ear infections and diabetes. Thankfully, a good Samaritan recognized Autumn's dire situation and convinced her owners to relinquish her. It's hard to believe, given her story, that she'd like people at all, but she seems to adore being with people. She's happy to go for a nice walk or to snooze by your side. Autumn is fine with other dogs, though she doesn't need them around to be happy…humans are her main focus. Autumn is on insulin, but now that she's a healthy 25-pounds, it's not clear if she'll need to continue. She also has some hip dysplasia but it doesn't slow her down at all, in fact sometimes she's very puppy-like. Autumn is a shining example of the resiliency and spirit of dogs. If you'd like to provide Autumn with the happy ending she deserves, please fill out an adoption application at TheRescuedDog.org to schedule a meet and greet.

MillieClick on Millie's picture to see her video on San Diego 6-CW Animal House!

Millie
Breed: Maltese Mix
Age: 6 years old
Sex: Spayed Female
Organization: Maltese & More Rescue
Phone: (858) 349-5918
Website: http://www.adoptapet.com/maltese-more-rescue/

Millie came from a puppy mill where she was used for breeding. As is customary in puppy mills, when dogs become too old to breed, they're discarded as they're no longer of any use. Typically, these dogs are kept in cages since birth, with little human contact. Millie had terrible dental issues, which have now been treated, and she's also blind in one eye. She's shy and timid but learning quickly to trust her foster mom. Everyday she's coming around more and more. She's now learning to use a puppy pad indoors and she knows how to use a doggy dog. Millie is friendly with other dogs and isn't bothered by cats. She'd be a great companion dog for someone that is retired, works from home or works part time…someone who has the time to get her a bit more socialized. Molly weighs a mere 4-pounds, which makes her a great travel companion, as well. She's sweet, quiet, and easy to fall in love with. Millie is now been spayed, microchipped, vaccinated and all dental work completed, so please contact Maltese And More Rescue to find out how you can fill out an adoption application and make Millie your Valentine!

Nibbler is a special little guy. He is a petite boy but has a big personality. Nibbler is a bit of a lone wolf and tends to spend most of his day hanging out in his man cave. He loves hanging out with his fellow rabbits during Hoppy Hour but seems to prefer being the only bun in your life. Maybe with the right girl, that could change. Nibbler is a curious guy and loves to explore. He loves gentle pets and getting some attention too. Will you open your heart and home for Nibbler?

Website: ARWOB.org

It's not too late to find your perfect Valentine! Barry would be an excellent candidate if you're looking for unconditional love. He's only been with Animal Rescuers Without Borders for 2 weeks, and because they didn't have an open foster home for him, he was stuck in boarding for most of that time. This Bichon/Poodle mix is just 16-pounds and loves other dogs and children. His foster family is crate training him, but we don't yet know how he is with cats. He likes to ride in a car, and is a happy boy. He was relinquished by a family who no longer wanted him, so they kept him on their patio full time. He'd been ignored for so long, his Christmas sweater was intertwined with his fur. The matts were pulling so hard on his skin that it caused permanent scarring...but with time, his fur will grow back.

Meet the "Paw Patrol" pups! Three boys and one girl who look like Dachshunds and who knows what else. Their mom, named Ryder, is a 15-pound Dachshund/Terrier/Shepherd mix who gave birth shortly after being rescued. Marshall and Chase are twins who look alike with their tan short hair. Their brother, Rubble, has wirey brown hair. They're all just a little shy when you first meet them, but they're very sweet and friendly. The boys are all bigger than their sister, and could weigh as much as 20-35 pounds full grown. All the puppies are available for adoption from Animal Rescuers Without Borders.

Sex: Spayed Female
Organization: El Cajon Animal Shelter, 1275 N. Marshall Street
Phone: (619) 441-1580

This little Chihuahua/Terrier mix is so sweet the shelter named her Peaches. Maybe she's not as young as some of the dogs in the shelter, and it's true she has a grey muzzle and her eyesight isn't what it used to be, but she still deserves a family to love her for the rest of her life. Peaches has the most loving and gentle temperament. She enjoys going on walks with the volunteers and loves all the attention. Her ideal adoptive home would be one where everyone treats her with warmth and consideration…maybe a family with older kids. Peaches appears to be housebroken and she's very well-behaved indoors.

Lucky the DogClick on Lucky's picture to see his video on San Diego 6-CW Animal House

Breed: Shih Tzu/Cavalier King Charles
Age: 2 years old
Sex: Neutered Male
Organization: The Rescued Dog
Phone: (619) 356-3390
Website:TheRescuedDog.org

Lucky was brought into a pet emergency room after he was hit by a car. Miraculously, this adorable boy didn't suffer any serious injuries from the accident. The ER contacted The Rescued Dog, who welcomed this cutie into their program. It became evident that he'd been an outside dog. His fur was matted, he had fleas, he didn't know how to behave in a house, and he was unsure of new people. His foster family has been working diligently to socialize him with their pack (both people and dogs.) It takes Lucky a day or two to trust new people, but he quickly becomes a faithful companion. His foster family reports that once he gets comfortable, he's a total lap dog. He LOVES food, and begs for it any chance he can. Lucky does well with other dogs, although he doesn't yet understand how to play with dogs, or doggie toys. Lucky is a 2-year-old Cavalier King Charles/Shih Tzu mix weighing about 12-pounds. Please fill out an adoption application for Lucky at TheRescuedDog.org.

Marty is playful and active making him great addition to a young family. Sweet and shy Reba is small, and she gets along well with other dogs. She's a 7-year old Terrier with lovely manners. She's quiet and will be a great companion to take on outings. Finally, Timmy is a little ball of fluff and a darling sweet boy who will steal your heart. At 8-pounds this little 7-year-old Maltese is easy to take on outings, and will garner loads of attention from passers-by. He's considered special needs because he's deaf, but we're confident there's someone out there who can see beyond that.

We're counting down to Cupids and Canines with Static…a 12-month-old Great Pyrenees mix weighing in at 80-pounds and GROWING! She isn't just a pretty face…she's also very sweet. She already knows sit, come, and wait. She's well on her way to being house and crate trained. Static is a relaxed girl who's good with all people, dogs and cats! She's a couch potato who loves to be with family. She's still learning to get into the car, but once she's in, she's quiet and polite. Like all girls, she loves shoes…so it's best to keep her preoccupied with chew-toys. She's also developed a taste for people food, so you have to watch that she doesn't make off with your snacks. Mostly, Static is a quiet, sweet, affectionate girl who loves belly rubs. She smiles a lot, too. She is a big, shy baby who warms up quickly. She'll thrive in a calm family environment with people who will socialize her. Static is spayed, microchipped, and vaccinated.

Joanne is very friendly, sweet, active and curious. She loves exploring and investigating new places and smells. She'd do great in a home with adults or one with calm, gentle kids.

Not only is this guy a lot of fun, but he's so unique-looking! Meet Craig, a super cool Husky-Catahoula mix looking for a fun forever family. Craig came to The Rescued Dog from the Humane Society of Imperial County. This head-turning guy is personable, easy-going, and social with both dogs and humans. At one year of age, Craig is the perfect age to start training with his forever family. He's smart and eager to please, so training will be easy and fun. He's already learned to sit and come when you call him. He'll pick up new behaviors quickly! Craig is about 60 pounds, and we don't think he will grow much more, although he may fill out a little. He's crate trained and has just about mastered his house training. If you're looking for a fun buddy to join you on hikes, walks, and runs, fill out an application at TheRescuedDog.org and a volunteer will call to set up an appointment for you to meet Craig.

We're so pleased to introduce Bernie! When you look into his sweet loving eyes your heart will melt from the pure love this dog has to offer some lucky person! Bernie is just 1.5 years old, he weighs 18-pounds, and appears to be a Shih Tzu Terrier mix. Bernie doesn't shed, he's fully housebroken, comes when you call, sits when you ask him to, waits to be invited onto the furniture, and he's polite when you eat. Bernie loves all people and other submissive dogs, though he's intimidated by alpha dogs. Bernie likes to play, but has no destructive habits. While at his foster home he enjoys morning kisses and cuddling in bed. Bernie waits patiently for his foster mom to get ready for work and sits down while his harness is donned and leash clipped. Bernie enjoys several walks a day, and while he's afraid of being stuck in a crate, he is accustomed to being restricted with a dog gate in a kitchen. Bernie takes a lot of naps and when he is awake he's always next to his people. Bernie is not overly enthusiastic about his daily eye cleaning, but cooperates and always feels better after his fur is nice and clean. Bernie is ready to be adopted to a family that works part time, works from home, or is enjoying retirement. Bernie likes other dogs but requires special attention during this transitional period of his life.

Cookie is quiet, loving and very well behaved. She is about 7 lbs. It isn't known how she was injured, which resulted in leg paralysis. Cookie was dumped at a shelter by her owners who no longer wanted to care for her disability. Open Arms found out later that it was an old spinal disc extrusion. Surgery was done on her, but it did not make a difference as the issue had been allowed to progress for so long. This doesn't slow her down one bit. Cookie would be good with kids or family as long as the kids are over eight years old. She has a little pink cart that she speeds around in. She's currently being fostered along with another little rescued paraplegic doggy named Romeo who is a 2 yr old Chihuahua. Cookie is spayed, microchipped and fully vaccinated.

Kiki is a 3-year-old Schnauzer Poodle mix who was adopted from Animal Rescuers Without Borders as a young pup a few years back. Sadly, her family went through lots of changes recently and lost their home, resulting in them giving up their dogs. For the past 3 years, Kiki has lived with a toddler and other young children and she was fine with them, so we already know she can be placed in a home with kids. She's good with other dogs and cats, though the cats in her foster home are swatting her around and she's not loving that! Kiki is crate trained, does well walking on a leash and riding in a car. She's also house trained and would love to be part of a family again. She could be an only dog, or live with other dogs...but what she really loves the most, is people! For someone looking for a lap dog and a good companion who'd enjoy going on walks or hiking…Kiki will be a good match. She's healthy and up to date on vaccinations, so she's ready to go to a loving home right away.

Phone: (619) 441-1580

If you're looking for a loving lap dog, please head to the El Cajon Animal Shelter and check out Buddy. He's a 6-year-old Chihuahua mix whose main ambition in life is to sit in a nice person's lap, which seems to make him feel safe and secure! He acts like a gentleman, he's very accommodating and gets along really well with other dogs. Unfortunately, Buddy's a little overwhelmed at the shelter, so he tends to stay in his bed, even when people walk past him. But if you'd like to get to know him better, the shelter staff will let you take him into the play yard where you can get better acquainted. Of course, he'll probably want to jump into your lap as soon as you sit on the bench. As a somewhat sensitive boy, he'd probably do best in a quiet, adult home. Buddy's already neutered, vaccinated, microchipped, and he's ready to go home with you today. As are so many other wonderful dogs and cats. The El Cajon Shelter is located at 1275 N. Marshall Street in El Cajon. Buddy's ID number is 23158 and we'd love to find him a home today!

He's relaxed at home, and has no problem chilling out while his people do their thing. He's also quite the cuddle bug, and enjoys snuggling with his human pals.

Age: 13 week old puppy
Sex: Spayed Female
Organization: Maltese & More Rescue
Phone: (858) 349-5918
Website: http://www.adoptapet.com/maltese-more-rescue/

Delilah came to Maltese & More via the local Bonita Shelter, where her owners had brought her, 3 days after being attacked by another dog in the house. Delilah's eye was mangled beyond repair, and caused her much pain, there was no other option than to have it removed. She was spayed and had a hernia repair done at the same time. It's amazing how quickly this happy girl recovered. This sweet, lovable little puppy will probably be 10-to-12 pounds full grown. She has a beautiful coat, trimmed in a "puppy cut", but you can let it grow out long to the ground. Delilah is very affectionate and enjoys snuggling. She plays with toys and other dogs in foster home…she even tries to engage the cat. Delilah enjoys car rides. Of course, she's just a puppy, so she still has a lot to learn about walking on a lease and housetraining skills. She'll need a family with the time and patience to train her. Delilah is microchipped, spayed, and vaccinated…but will need her last set of puppy shots in 3 weeks.

Delilah
Breed: Shih Tzu mix
Age: 5 years old
Sex: Spayed Female
Organization: No Wagging Tail Left Behind
Phone: (858) 442-6485
Website: NWTLB.org

Delilah is a 5-year-old Shih Tzu mix who wound up in the No Wagging Tail Left Behind foster program after she was given to a family with a special needs child. The family thought it would be nice for their child to have a companion, but after just 1-month, they realized their child was not at all ready for an animal. They did have another young daughter who was very good with Delilah. Delilah has a happy demeanor. She fits in nicely at her foster home, and gets along well with other dogs and people. She's very loving and sweet, but she has not yet been tested with cats. Delilah is house-trained and likes to sleep on the bed at night. She walks nicely on a leash and enjoys car rides. If you're interested in adopting this darling little dog, please contact No Wagging Tail Left Behind. Since she's already vaccinated and microchipped, Delilah is ready to go to a new home right away!

Breed: Dachshund/Terrier mix
Age: 4 month old puppy
Sex: Spayed Female
Organization: Animal Rescuers Without Borders
Phone: (619) 977-3593
Website: ARWOB.org

Blossom is a Dachshund/Terrier mix puppy. When she and her sisters were pulled from a local shelter, they were nicknamed the Powder Puff girls. Fortunately for them, Blossom's sisters have both been adopted, and now we're hoping it's Blossom's turn. Blossom is just 4-months old and has the potential to reach 15-pounds. In addition to being adorable on the outside, she has an amazing personality and she's friendly and gentle with everyone and everything she meets. While in her foster home, Blossom has been crate trained and she's very good in the car. Of course, she's still a puppy, so ideally she needs a family with someone who has the time and patience to continue her indoor housetraining. You may notice that she has one blue eye and one blackish-brown colored eye which makes her even more unique. If you're interested in meeting this sweet pup, please contact Animal Rescuers Without Borders. You can go directly to their website at ARWOB.org to fill out an adoption application.

Breed: Pit Bull Mix
Age: 6 1/2 month old puppy
Sex: Spayed Female
Organization: Pit Bull Rescue San Diego (PBRSD)
Phone: (858) 333-6911
Website: www.pbrsd.org

Joni is a 6.5 month old Pittie Puppy who is just as happy playing fetch as she is playing with her toys all by herself on the couch! Her foster family is teaching her so much…she's learned to touch, sit, lay down, get up, off, wait, shake and go to her kennel. She'd thrive with a family who will keep training her to do cool tricks or maybe even a doggie sport. She lives with two other pit bulls in her foster home. She plays hard with the young dog and she's respectful and gentle with the older guy. She's played with children as young as 6, but a family with older dog-savvy kids would be ideal. She seems curious, but not aggressive toward cats, and goes to work with her foster mom at an animal hospital a few days a week, so she's been exposed to other animals. Joni's ideal adoptive family would be one who will keep her mind and body active. She'd love a running or jogging partner, or an adventurous hiker. You can read more about Joni, and submit an adoption application, at www.pbrsd.org. And come meet her at Cupids & Canines at Grossmont Center in La Mesa on Sunday February 12th!

Meet Brownie, an adorable Chihuahua mix, looking for her forever family. Brownie is available from The Rescued Dog, and she's been living with other rescued dogs while she awaits her new forever home. Brownie was overweight when she was originally rescued, weighing in at about 20-pounds. She's been watching what she eats and has slimmed down a bit, but her new family will want to make sure she's on the right track with her diet and exercise. That shouldn't be too hard, as Brownie loves a good walk. In fact, she might even motivate you to stick to your New Year's diet and exercise plan! She's smart, sweet, and playful with other dogs. She'll be a lot of fun to train. Brownie can be shy at first when meeting new people and dogs, but she warms up quickly. She also has lovely manners in the house and is completely house trained. Brownie is about 4 years old, which is a great age to start life with her new family. She's over all the puppy stuff but still has many years of life and love to share. If you'd like to meet Brownie, please fill out an adoption application at TheRescuedDog.org and an adoption coordinator will be in touch to schedule a meet and greet.

Lincoln has been in a Passion For Pitties foster home since he was a 5.5-month-old puppy. He's now 2.5 years old, and it's time we find him a forever home. Lincoln has a huge scar on his right shoulder blade that's been there since he was rescued from a shelter. Whave no idea what happened to this poor boy when he was a pup. He does have a lot of energy and really is very smart and loves people. Some folks are turned off by him due to his scar and his excitement level when he meets new people. He loves other dogs but initially, he can be a little annoying, so sadly many dogs don't like him. Lincoln is being fostered with small dogs and a cat. He chases the cat, but would never hurt it, or any of the dogs. Lincoln would be best with an active dog savvy family that's willing to give this boy the love and attention he deserves. We feel he'd thrive as an only dog, or with one other large dog. If you're interested in meeting Lincoln please go to Passionforpitties.com and complete an adoption application. All Passion for Pitties dogs are spayed or neutered, current on vaccinations and microchipped.

Bam Bam seems to understand at an early age when it's time to play and when it's time to chill out. He weighs 3.5 pounds now, and could be 10, full grown. Bam Bam and Tiny both love to play with other pups. Since they're just puppies, they're still working on their basic commands, recall and house-training.

Website: AdoptAPet.com/maltese-more-rescue/
Email: info@Malteseandmorerescue.org

Merlot was pulled from the shelter in Bonita with a horrible injury to her rear leg and hip. Maltese And More took her to a veterinarian, and x-rays revealed that her injuries were too old and severe to mend. The ultimate solution was to amputate her leg. Since she wasn't using her leg anyhow, the transition to being a tri-pod wasn't hard to make. Her foster mom's says that Merlot is a shy, sensitive and gentle girl who is cautious with new people and dogs. Even though she gets along with other dogs, she is a little timid initially. She's more comfortable around adults, so a home without small children would be ideal. She's just a year old, so Merlot is very playful, yet she still loves her nap time! She's a snuggler and enjoys hanging out and watching TV with her foster family, making her a great companion. Merlot weighs just 7-pounds, full-grown, and she's housetrained and great company to have around. Merlot is vaccinated, microchipped, spayed and ready for a new home. If you'd like to meet Merlot, Google "Maltese And More Rescue", and you'll be guided to their website where you can fill out an adoption application.

Branson and Barona are 4 month old puppies from the same litter. Their father is a corgi mix, and based on their coloring, they could also be shepherd or pittie. Sweet Branson has a beautiful brindle coat and loves to cuddle. He's learning to fetch and return. He's such a happy pup and will follow you everywhere! Barona, also has beautiful markings and a great disposition. He's smart as a whip! He learned to sit within 5 minutes and to walk on the leash. He loves to play, especially with balls and pull toys. He'll follow you everywhere…even without a leash. Both pups are good with children, dogs, cats, and love car rides! Branson and Barona have been crate-trained by their foster parents. They're also neutered, microchipped and vaccinated. The adoption fee is $300, with a training deposit of $100, but it's refundable within 3 months.

Adorable Lucy has had a rough start but we have high hopes for her future! Lucy and her litter mate Ethel were found when they were just 10 weeks old, trapped under a trailer house, with no sign of either their mom or any other surviving siblings. A good Samaritan rescued them and asked The Rescued Dog to take the two adorable sisters into their foster program. Lucy and Ethel are fun, interactive, and super cute. Lucy has a sweet and mellow demeanor. She gets along great with other dogs, cats, and humans, including children. Lucy likes having another dog around, but would probably be okay as an only dog, as long as she gets a lot of social play time. She has a beautiful and unique scruffy merle-colored coat. She's 4 months old now, and weighs about 8-pounds. We think she'll be around 15-to-20 pounds when she's full-grown.

This handsome 15-pound Poodle named James was pulled from the Bonita animal shelter and placed in a Maltese And More Rescue foster home. Not only is he very distinguished looking, but he definitely has the manners and disposition of a gentleman. He holds his head up high, and prances around like royalty. He even maintains a regal air when he's simply looking out the car window or when he's perched up on the couch. James is very calm and gentle, and appears to be housebroken when he has access to the outdoors. He's a perfect gentleman on the leash, loves to ride in the car and gets along well with other dogs. His foster family says he's a joy to have in their home and will be a wonderful companion. James is neutered and up to date on all his shots and ready for his permanent home…and because he's 9 years old, he qualifies for a special adoption rate as part of their "Senior-to-Senior" adoption program.

Violet was pulled from the Bonita Shelter by Maltese And More Rescue. She was in dire need of dental work and was so matted from neglect that the groomers decided it was best to just shave her down to make her comfortable. When her straight hair grows out, it'll be very beautiful. This 9-pound girl is one happy dog. She wags her tail most of this time, and gets even happier when her foster parents come home. Violet fits in so well with other dogs and cats. She's obedient and easy to have around, plus, she's housetrained. Violet loves to snuggle while watching TV and hanging out with her foster family. She likes to go for short walks and is well trained on a leash. Car rides are another thing Violet enjoys so she'd love to join you on your outings.

Website: HollysGarden.com

10-year-old Poppy was dumped at a high-kill shelter in L.A. by owners who gave no reason why, and no information to help him get adopted. Poor Poppy was confused and scared. Just hours before he was to be euthanized, a foster family in San Diego saw a video of Poppy and knew they had to save him and bring him into the Holly's Garden Rescue program. It took time for Poppy to warm up to his new surroundings and realize he was going to be all right. He now knows he's safe and loved. Poppy loves giving kisses, cuddling with his foster parents, and playing with his foster brother. He gained weight and saw the vet for a checkup, which included a full blood panel to be sure he was in good health. His foster family believes he was left outside as his elbows have no hair on them, and his ears were sore from fly bites. He's learning to walk on a leash, loves to play, and does well with other dogs. He takes food very nicely, listens well, and also does very well with children. He's neutered, vaccinated, microchipped, and housebroken. This sweet 9-pound Chiweenie deserves to live happily ever after. Please go to HollysGarden.com to fill out the adoption application. His adoption fee is just $75.

When The Rescued Dog rescued Sage last August, they didn't know they were actually saving Sage AND her 7 puppies-to-be! That's right, this petite little beauty gave birth to 7 puppies in October. She was less than 12-months-old when she gave birth, meaning she was really just a puppy herself. She's been a great mom, and all her adorable pups have been adopted, but now it's her turn! Sage is a little more than a year old now, and is ready for a second chance at life with a forever family. She's a little inexperienced in the ways of the world, but she's naturally fun and affectionate. She's not at all shy about asking for belly rubs and kisses. Sage has a sweet temperament and gets along great with dogs, cats, and humans, including children. Sage has had just a little training since she came to the rescued dog, and she'd love to continue learning how to sit, heel, and follow other commands. Sage is a petite size, weighing in at just 20-pounds. If you'd like to give this little Beagle/Spaniel mix a home for the holidays, and beyond, please go to TheRescuedDog.org and fill out an application so that you can meet Sage right away, and find out if she's the perfect match for your family!

Charlie is a very loving Cocker Spaniel. He was extremely neglected as a senior dog in his previous life, but with a little care from his foster family, he's doing much better. He has a fantastic temperament and prefers to be with people 24/7, so he'd be ideal for a loving senior couple, or for someone needing an emotional support dog to be with them all the time. He can go anywhere and everywhere. He travels so well in the car, and he's very quiet, very low key, he curls up to sleep most of the day, and enjoys nice relaxing walks. He's considered a special needs dog because he can't hear well, or at least has very selective hearing, and he'll need a harness at all times for his own safety. He gets along with other dogs, but he'd MUCH rather hang out with his people in a relaxing environment. He'll basically ignore any cats in the home, and he'll be GREAT with grandchildren. He's just a model citizen! Charlie is vaccinated, microchipped, neutered and ready for a loving family to go home to this Christmas and chill by the fireplace. Please contact SENA Animal Rescue and help us make a Christmas wish come true for one very sweet and deserving senior dog.

Name: Moxie
Breed: Shih Tzu
Age: Senior
Sex: Spayed Female
Organization: No Wagging Tail Left Behind
Phone: (858) 442-6485
Website: www.nwtlb.org

This little 11 year old Shih Tzu is a sweet quite girl who's had at least two homes before coming to No Wagging Tail Left Behind Animal Rescue. Moxie was recently separated from a labrador she lived with for 4 years! No wonder she looks so scared. 

Moxie
has a lot of life in her. She loves walking and car rides. She doesn't need a lot to make her happy, some love, pets and snacks. Oh, and she's a good eater. She does take a medication twice a day for her heart but you would not know there's anything wrong. She's a perfect companion for a senior who is active. Contact nwtlb.org for an adoption application, or call (858) 442-6485

She is hoping to find a home and get settled in before Christmas.

Website: www.secondchancedogrescue.org

Meet Palomita…an active playful attentive girl who gets along well with other dogs. She's a 1-year-old, American Bulldog-Pittie mix who can't wait to have her own family. She LOVES playing with dogs and eating. She's such a happy girl who strategically plants herself in front of the other dogs so she can be petted first. With Palomita you'll never be alone – this "Velcro dog" will follow you to the bathroom to make sure you don't get lost, and she'll get up to greet you the second you stir in the morning. She's been around toddlers and doesn't pay much attention to them. She loves everyone she meets. She comes when called, and sits when told…albeit briefly. Palomita loves riding in the car, she's learning to walk on a leash, and she's totally housebroken. With her big smile and wiggly butt, she's sure to brighten your day and your life. Her snoring will always let you know where she's sleeping. Palomita's adoption fee includes her spay, microchip and vaccinations. Second Chance Dog Rescue is looking for a local San Diego family, and they require a home visit prior to adoption. Please visit SecondChanceDogRescue.org to fill out an adoption application today, so that we can find Palomita a home for the holidays, and beyond!

OtisClick on Olis' picture to see his video on San Diego 6-CW Animal House!

Name: Otis
Breed: American Pit Bull Blend
Age: 2-years-old
Sex: Neutered Male
Organization: Passion for Pitties Rescue Group
Phone: (619) 884-4008
Website: PassionForPitties.com

Otis was adopted from Passion for Pitties when he was just a puppy. They thought they had found him a forever home, but sadly once he turned a year old, the family brought him back to the rescue. Otis has been in a foster home for almost 8 months now, searching for someone who will consider him part of the family. He's such an amazing dog, and truly loves his human companions. Otis is wonderful with children of all ages. He's good on a leash and responds well to commands. He sits to wait for his food, and makes great eye contact with his handler. Although Otis is in a home with several other Pits he'd truly be best as an only dog. He won't tolerate being bullied by another dog, and frankly, he just avoids them altogether to be with people. With this said, Otis would be happiest as the furriest family member, so he can be loved on as he deserves to be. All Passion for Pitties dogs are spayed or neutered, vaccinated and microchipped. If you're interested in Otis please go to PassionForPitties.com and you'll find Otis listed under "adorable adoptables". Please complete an adoption application and a volunteer will be in touch shortly.

CharlieClick on Charlie's picture to see his video on San Diego 6-CW Animal House!

Name: Charlie
Breed: Shih Tzu/Lhasa Apso mix
Age: 5-years-old
Sex: Neutered Male
Organization: Holly's Garden Small Breed Rescue
Phone: (858) 274-2940
Website: HollysGarden.com

Charlie is a sweet, fun, cuddly male Shih Tzu/Lhasa Apso mix who had a rough start in life. He's just 5-years-old and came from a horrible hoarding situation resulting in the confiscation of 86 severely neglected dogs from just one house. Charlie is good with other dogs, but he's never been around cats, and he'd be best with children who are at least 8 years of age....no toddlers. He's fine on the leash, and great when it comes to taking a bath and being groomed. He's just 15-pounds and only has one eye, so if you're looking for perfection, maybe he's not the guy for you…but if you're looking for a dog to love, and a great companion who will love you back, then maybe you should give him a chance. His remaining eye is also light sensitive, so when you take him out for walks, he will need sunglasses or "doggles", which really only makes him look a little bit cooler! If you'd like to meet Charlie, please contact Holly's Garden Small Breed Rescue at 858-274-29-40 or fill out an application at HollysGarden.com.

Age: 3 1/2 years old
Sex: Spayed Female
Organization: No Wagging Tail Left Behind
Phone: (858) 442-6485
Website: www.nwtlb.org

Ms. Junebug was confiscated from a hoarder. She was one of many animals who were confiscated, but some were in such bad shape they had to be euthanized. She made her way to the Imperial County Animal Control, and then eventually into the No Wagging Tail Left Behind foster program. This young Chiweenie mix has been part of the rescue organization for a year now. She's bright, fun, smart and playful. She likes the company of other dogs and is well socialized. She's good with children and also likes to sit in your lap and snuggle. Junebug is already spayed, vaccinated and microchipped. She also had a dental cleaning earlier this year, so she's ready to be placed into a permanent home right away.

Gracie is a very sweet girl, who will climb in your lap if you let her. She's still a puppy and working on not chewing on things. She loves to rough-house and zoom around the yard with her foster sister! She's also learned sit and is working on stay. Of course, Dobermans are known for being very smart dogs, so she'll thrive with some good training. Gracie is already crate trained, and often times goes into her crate on her own when it's time for bed! As an added plus, she's a very sound sleeper! Her foster family thinks the perfect family for her would be one that has another dog who is active and likes to run and play, and maybe some children who would like to take her on walks and play with her. She's just a wonderful puppy, and needs a committed family who will see her as another member of the family and love her for life.

Breed: Cockapoo mixes
Age: 14 weeks old
Sex: Neutered Males
Organization: San Diego Spaniel Rescue
Phone: (619) 922-0545
Website: www.SDSR.org

When Cookie, a black Cockapoo, came into the San Diego Spaniel Rescue, they had no idea she was pregnant, but she had 7 cockapoo-mix pups shortly after joining the foster program. Since they don't know who or what the daddy was, the puppies were born via C-section, and in honor of their mom, were all given cookie names. Amos, Scooter and Reese are the remaining puppies who haven't been spoken for yet. Like typical little boys, they love to play, sleep, and then play some more. They're good snugglers and love to give kisses. They're pretty much house trained to use a pee-pad and are learning how to use the doggie door in their pen. With continued training and patience, they'll be wonderful dogs. The foster mom says having a liter of puppies this age is like having curious, 2-year-old toddlers running all over the place and exploring the world.

SeptemberClick on September's picture to see her video on San Diego 6-CW Animal House!


Name: September
Breed: Calico Tabby mix
Age: 1-to-2 years of age
Sex: Spayed Female
Organization: Animal Rescuers Without Borders
Phone: (619) 977-3593
Website: ARWOB.org

This sweet mama cat named September, was rescued from the streets along with her 6 kittens, all of whom have been adopted. September is loving and is ok with dogs and other cats, but she doesn't like to be overwhelmed by them. While she was an excellent mother who adored her kittens, she'd probably be thrilled to be the only kitty in her home, especially if it means getting all the attention for herself. She's currently residing at the Cat Adoption Center inside the Clairemont Petsmart store, where you can meet her any day of the week. However, we'd love to get her out of a cage and into a loving home as soon as possible. September is a playful, indoor-only lap-cat, and you can find out about adopting or fostering her on the Animal Rescuers Without Borders website. Even if you're not ready to adopt a cat permanently, they'd love to increase their foster home base so that they can save even more animals in the new year. Go to ARWOB.org for adoption or foster applications, or to find out more information about their many adoptable cats and dogs.

Sadie from ArwobClick on Sadie's picture to see her video on San Diego 6-CW Animal House!

Name: Sadie
Breed: Labrador/Pointer mix
Age: 1.5-years old
Sex: Spayed Female
Organization: Animal Rescuers Without Borders
Phone: (619) 977-3593
Website: ARWOB.org

This is Sadie's second time on TV, and we hope featuring her again will help her find a home. Sadie is a 45-pound Labrador Pointer mix who was found on the side of the road in May. She was malnourished with visible injuries to her leg. Animal Rescuers Without Borders provided her with the veterinary care and physical therapy she required to treat wounds to her spine and pelvis, and fractures to both hind legs. She had lived in excruciating pain for months after being hit…nevertheless, she was friendly and loving from the get-go. She gets along with other dogs, though she needs gentle, calm companions, and she also likes cats. She knows how to use a doggie door, she's crate trained, and doesn't need a lot of activity…in fact, we're looking for a calm, quiet environment for her, where she can be free from any chance of aggravating her injuries. Her adoption fee is reduced to $50, dispite all the medical costs she incurred. But their priority is to find her a good, safe, loving environment. Go to ARWOB.org for more information.

Breed: Siamese Mix
Age: 3-month-old kitten
Sex: Spayed Female
Organization: Animal Rescuers Without Borders
Phone: (619) 977-3593
Website: ARWOB.org

This 3-pound, 3-month-old Siamese kitten named Giovanna is available for adoption from Animal Rescuers Without Borders. She and her siblings, who look nothing like her by the way, are all available for adoption and they're just the sweetest, most amazing and outgoing little souls you will ever meet. They're very curious and funny, and they love to be "in your face" and demand a lot of attention. If you don't want an affectionate lap-kitty, then Giovanna is definitely not for you. It's a great idea to adopt two kittens at the same time, as it gives them someone to play with when you're not at home, plus, there is a special adoption donation of just $200 to adopt two. All kittens are still spayed or neutered, microchipped and fully vaccinated. Since Giovanna and her siblings are in an Animal Rescuers Without Borders foster home together, please submit an adoption application on the website at ARWOB.org, and you will be contacted for a play-date. They will also be available to meet at upcoming adoption events, which you can also find out about on their website.

Breed: Chiweenie
Age: 2 years old
Sex: Spayed Female
Organization: Animal Rescuers Without Borders

Website: ARWOB.org

Mayka is a Chihuahua Dachshund mix, or Chiweenie, as the breeders of so-called Designer Dogs would call her. She's 2-years-old and full-grown at just 10-pounds. Mayka is great with people of all ages, that includes children. She also gets along with other dogs and cats in her foster home. She's good in the car, walks well on a leash, and she's crate-trained. Mayka was rescued from the streets of Mexico along with her babies who have all been adopted. Now it's her turn for happiness. Mayka is energetic, but not crazy, and she's very friendly and sweet. Her biggest weakness is food, therefore she needs a family who won't indulge her too much, and let her get fat. If she does con you out of too many treats, it would be good if her new family would keep her active....maybe by taking her to play regularly at the off-leash dog parks. Mayka would love to be part of a big family with kids, or with a retired couple who will adore her and shower her with affection. Contact Animal Rescuers Without Borders at ARWOB.org for more details, and to find out about upcoming adoption events where you can meet all their adoptable dogs.

Sex: Neutered Male
Organization: Animal Rescuers Without Borders

Website: ARWOB.org

Oso is appearing on TV for the third time after previous efforts did not result in an adoption. Since November is National Adopt-A-Senior Pet month, our fingers are crossed for a good family to notice him this time. This handsome Pomeranian is 7-years-old, but it's important to remember that small dogs live much longer than large breeds, so in that respect, he's only middle-aged. Oso weighs 18-pounds, and he's great with all dogs, cats, and people. He's healthy, and thriving in his foster home, with a family who reports that he's completely house-trained, crate-trained, good on a leash, and enjoys a good walk, or a nice ride in the car. Oso is a total lap-dog and an excellent companion. He recently had a dental cleaning and had a senior blood panel screening, which came out totally normal and healthy.

Earth is a 5 1/2 year old ex-racing greyhound, now happily retired and residing at the Greyhound Adoption Center. She's from the Caliente racetrack in Mexico, where she registered an astonishing 413 races during her career! She must've been an incredible athlete. Earth would do best in a home with a mature, mellow cat, and she's both small dog and child friendly. She'll make a wonderful companion for an active family. Even at her age, she is an active, playful Greyhound! All dogs from the Greyhound Adoption Center have a complete medical evaluation, are spayed or neutered, vaccinated, microchipped, and have their teeth cleaned.

Phone: (619) 441-1580 or (619) 579-3375
Webpage: http://www.adoptapet.com/shelter69341-pets.html

Skippy is a 4-year-old Chihuahua mix available for adoption at the El Cajon Animal Shelter. He came to the shelter with a fractured pelvis and femoral head fracture. God only knows what happened to him. Thankfully, he received the medical care and surgery he needed to heal. Now, Skippy's ready to find a family of his own. Through all his hardship, he's remained in good spirits. He enjoys attention and gets along with the other dogs at the shelter. He's such a sweet boy they even trust him with children. He's still not putting all his weight on his repaired leg, but with time, patience and a caring environment, he should start using it more. Skippy is definitely a favorite at the shelter and he's sure to bring joy to his new home. By the way, Pit Bulls and Chihuahuas are the two most over-represented breeds in our shelters? That's because they are the most overbred and abused breeds out there. And it's just as hard to find a tiny Chihuahua a home as it is a big Pittie, because with the sheer number of them out there, the odds are simply against them. So please, spay and neuter your dogs. Take advantage of the many low cost programs out there, and help us win the battle. Find out more at the El Cajon Shelter on North Marshall Street. Open Tuesday through Saturday 10-to-5.

Foxy, and her brother Butters are adorable Pugs available for adoption from The Rescued Dog. They don't have to be adopted together, but until recently, they'd lived with each other their whole lives. Foxy's a typical pug; sassy, spunky, and snorty. She's about 5 years old, and perfect for a family looking for a dog beyond the puppy stage, but one who still has plenty of adventures ahead of her. She's affectionate, cuddly, and loves to lay on her back in your arms. She currently lives in a home with a male dog and she's always by his side, however she can be a little bossy with other female pups. She rarely barks but snorts, grunts, and snores A LOT! Foxy is crate trained but would gladly sleep in bed with you. She's a loving and loyal companion. Foxy likes to go on walks but she's still trying to figure out what the leash is all about, and she's pretty cautious about approaching strangers. Foxy is working on some basic commands, and learning new tricks! She's especially eager to learn when it involves treats, but like most pugs, she has a bit of a short attention span. If you're looking for a hilarious character join your life, please fill out an adoption application at TheRescuedDog.org.

It's a HUGE issue for a senior dog rescue like Lionel's Legacy. About 95% of the females that come to Lionel's Legacy have mammary masses requiring drastic surgical procedures...sometimes too late.

He's a typical Beagle who loves to use his nose, loves to play with canine friends, is good with cats, and loves to eat. Beagles like to go for walks, because of their ears they require some maintenance, and they of course like to talk on occasion. Buddy's favorite thing in life is a good old fashioned belly rub! Buddy is up to date on vaccines, microchipped, and fully vetted. We're currently looking for a foster or adoptive home for Buddy so if you want to find out more about this fun loving boy please contact lionelslegacy.org NOVEMBER IS ADOPT A SENIOR DOG MONTH - all of our adoption are $95 and come with a bag of food, a dog bed, dog bowl and leash & collar!

Website: TheRescuedDog.org

Are you looking for a ray of sunshine in your life? Sunshine, or Sunny, as he's called by his friends, came to The Rescued Dog from a San Bernardino Shelter in March. At two months of age, he'd already had a rough life. His right front foot was broken and he was very afraid and insecure. After 5 months of healing, rehab, and professional training, he's now happy, healthy and ready for his forever home. Sunny benefits greatly from socializing with other confident dogs. His foster family takes him to the dog park and the beach to make sure he has positive interactions with new canine friends. He also loves playing with his foster family's dogs. Sunny enjoys a good game of fetch and drops the ball on command. He's a smart little guy who also knows several other basic commands. Sunny is still working on his leash manners and will need a family willing to continue with his training. Sunny does best in a calm environment and has the characteristics of both a Jack Russell terrier and a Corgi. He's just 28-pounds and almost full-grown. If you'd like to meet Sunny, please got to TheRescuedDog.org for an application, and you can also learn about fostering a dog in need.

Breed: Chihuahua/Terrier
Age: 4 months old

Website: ARWOB.org

Back in August, Animal Rescuers Without Borders rescued a litter of puppies and their mom. When they went to pick up the little family, one of the puppies was missing, and they feared the worst had happened. Nevertheless, volunteers left notes around the neighborhood asking people to call them if they saw the puppy. Well, a couple of weeks ago, they finally got a call from someone who had planned to keep the puppy, but when he realized how much work was involved in raising and training a puppy properly, he called ARWOB to come get the little guy. Now, Scottsdale is safe in a loving foster home. He's been neutered, microchipped and fully vaccinated. While he's 5 pounds now, he has the potential to reach 15 to 20 pounds full grown. While he's very sweet and getting the hang of crate-training, he's not yet house-trained. Of course, that's quite normal for a puppy of his age, so he just needs someone with the patience to take him out regularly and consistently so that he knows what to do. Scottsdale is already well socialized with other dogs, cats, and children.

He's very content to sit with you and be loved, but he also loves to get out and explore. Because he's a strong and energetic boy, he'll need to be tired out as much as possible. Amadeus is just 2 years old...still a young dog...and can get into trouble if he has too much pent up energy. Too much stimulation makes him a little confused and uneasy, and Amadeus tries to protect by growling and trying to show he is the boss. Once you get to know him, it's easy to see he's a very sensitive soul. He's good in a structured pack setting and his ideal home would be a quiet one where he's given lots of attention and support. His shy personality makes him irresistible, and without exception, everyone who meets Amadeus falls in love with him, and we know you will too! His adoption is restricted to the San Diego residents so his trainer can help integrate him into his new environment, and help set everyone up for success. If you are interested in meeting Amadeus, and you are able to provide a structured environment and forever home for this 50-pound boy, please call (818) 406-4877 or go to Ridgebacksandfriends.org for more information.

Oso Click on Oso's picture to see his video on San Diego 6-CW Animal House! (and CLICK HERE to see Oso's TV Debut on San Diego Living).

Name: Oso
Breed: Pomeranian/Spitz
Age: 9-years-old
Sex; Neutered Male
Organization: Animal Rescuers Without Borders
Website: ARWOB.org
Phone: (619) 977-3593

Oso is a 9-year-old Pomeranian Spitz mix, and he's an example of how wonderful adopting senior dogs can be....a lot less work than a puppy, and just as lovable! Oso was relinquished by his mom after she got a new job that required lots of travel, and Oso was stuck in boarding whenever she was away. An ideal future for him would be to spend his life with a retiree, or a family who can give him lots of love and attention. He'd also be a good companion for another calm canine. Nothing makes him happier than hanging out with his people. This fluffy Pomeranian mix is excellent with people of all ages, including children, and loves other dog and cats...in fact he's curently living in a home with lots of other pets. As a senior he's had a dental cleaning, he's up to date on all his vaccinations, he's already neutered and has a clean bill of health from the vet. He'll need regular grooming to keep his fur in good shape, and annual vet visits. If you're interested in meeting Oso, please fill out an adoption appliation at ARWOB.org where you can also learn about becoming a foster family for Animal Rescuers Without Borders and helping another dog just like Oso, until a forever family can be found.

Name:
Lulu
Breed: Poodle
Age: 14 years old
Sex: Spayed Female
Organization: Animal Rescuers Without Borders
Phone: (619) 977-3593
Website: ARWOB.org

Lulu is a 14-year-old purebred apricot Poodle who wound up at a county shelter after being found as a very emaciated and neglected stray. Animal Rescuers Without Borders recognized that a Senior dog like Lulu, who has been diagnosed with cataracts and can only see shadows, would have very little chance of ever being adopted from the shelter. They pulled her out, cleaned her up, got her teeth cleaned, spayed, vaccinated and microchipped her, and now they're looking for a long-term foster, or a forever family who could love her for the rest of her life. Once she gets to know her house, she does VERY well getting around, and even navigating the stairs and yard. She's great with other dogs, cats and children. She's even good in her crate and travels well in the car. Mostly she loves being a lap dog, and is very sweet, friendly and sociable. Because she's just 13-pounds, she'll live much longer than a larger dog, and according to her healthy blood panel, she's still got a nice life ahead of her. It's also very possible that cataract surgery could reverse her blindness, but the rescue just doesn't have the $4,000 to pay for the surgery. If you're interested in filling out an adoption or foster application, please go to ARWOB.org, or email AnimalRescuers@SBCGlobal.net.

Webpage: http://www.adoptapet.com/shelter69341-pets.html

There are few, if any, animal welfare organizations that would recommend declawing your cat, but if that is something that's important to you, then I know where you can get two wonderful declawed kitties who are in need of a good home. Thor and his sister Diamond are both available for adoption at the El Cajon Animal Shelter. As you can see, Thor is a brown tabby, and his sister is a manx tabby. Both are 4-years-old, declawed on their front paws, and super friendly with everyone. Thor is a big love-bug who likes to talk and play with toys. Both cats were turned into the shelter because their owner became allergic to them. His previous owner says Thor loves to sleep with his people, and will follow you around the house like a shadow. He's very affectionate. Thor can be adopted by himself, but ideally, it would be wonderful if someone adopted both kitties and kept them together. All animals at the shelter are spayed or neutered, fully vaccinated, and microchipped before adoption. The El Cajon Animal Shelter is located at 1275 N. Marshall Street, two blocks north of Fletcher Parkway, in El Cajon. They're open Tuesday thru Saturday 10am to 5pm, and closed Sundays and Mondays. Please come visit Thor and Diamond and see if they're the perfect pair for you.

Dogs Fur Days treated him for the condition, and now he's all cleared up, and his coat is coming in more beautiful than ever! He still has another two weeks of medicine, which will be provided to the adopter, and then he is done with his treatment and should have no lasting effects. Cheddar is a silly, playful, friendly pup who would make a fantastic addition to any family. He adores all people, and other dogs. He has loads of energy and is a bit mouthy, normal for his age, but that could be a problem if you have toddlers. He loves squeaky toys and will keep you laughing with his goofy antics. He's housebroken, microchipped, neutered, vaccinated, and dewormed. His adoption fee includes a collar, leash, and harness!

Meet Lavender and Lily! They're 3 months old and currently 6-pounds. Going on the assumption that they're dachshund/pug mixes, they'll likely end up being around 15-pounds, full grown. The girls and two other litter mates were brought to a shelter at only 4 weeks of age. They were skinny, and covered in fleas and ticks. They were taken away from their mother way too early. Luckily, they were eager to be bottle fed and quickly regained their strength. They've been raised in a foster home with their brother and sister and a few adult dogs to teach them good manners. They love dogs, kids, and adults and have received plenty of baths, nail trimmings, and car rides. They do require an adoption fee, but it includes spay, neuter, deworming, vaccinations, microchip, leash, collar, harness and a 5-week training class.

Age: 2 years young
Sex: Spayed

Ambrosia is a special needs girl because she is deaf. She's so gentle and sweet and currently lives with a female Shepherd mix, a Pittie mix, 2 cats, chickens and 4 children! Ambrosia is amazing with all humans and loves the kids. She's submissive and good with ALL dogs, big and small. Ambrosia would do best in a home with someone who is home quite a bit, or least someone in the family is home during the day. She thrives with human attention and really just wants to be next to you.

Champion is a tri-pod boy...missing one of his front legs. He's really NOT special needs because he can run like there's no tomorrow, and having just 3 legs doesn't stop him from playing fetch!! He's a pro! In his foster home, he's living with 2 Pit Bulls, a male and a female, and does spectacular with them! Champion also lives with a 2-year-old toddler, and he's very gentle with children. He's an all-around perfectly amazing boy...well-behaved, great on a leash, and makes good eye contact with his handler. Champion enjoys his petting sessions and is happiest when someone is home to love on him. He's non-confrontational, even rude dogs don't seem to phase him. He'd fit into any loving family.

Female Arie is a darling. She's very well-behaved, very mindful on the leash, and knows several commands. Shelter life was very difficult on Arie, as it is for so many pets. She's had the benefit of working with one of the Passion For Pitties trainers to help her after she was pulled from the shelter, and she has thrived since then. She's dog friendly, and very playful with other dogs. She prefers playing with humans or dogs, rather than toys. Arie can play rough if her doggie playmate displays that type of play, so we feel she'd do best in a home with a large male dog, and a nice yard to play in. She's also good with children. All Passion for Pitties dogs are current on vaccinations, microchiped and spayed or neutered.

Curls is a 2 1/2 year old retired greyhound residing at the Greyhound Adoption Center. He arrived at the shelter with six others in February. Curls was adopted in May, but brought back because the pack dynamics in his new home just didn't work. He's a very strong, big boy, but he's affectionate, playful, joyful, and thoroughly enjoys human companionship. Curls would be happiest as the only dog in the home, and would make an excellent addition to a busy family with older kids. All dogs from "GAC" have a complete medical evaluation, are spayed or neutered, vaccinated, microchipped, and undergo a thorough dental cleaning. They're evaluated for temperament and personality, and tested with cats, small dogs, and young children before being profiled for a home.

Bessie Mae is not only an adorable Cairn Terrier, but she's also an incredible tripod rock star. We don't know how she lost her leg, but it definitely doesn't define her ability to enjoy a great walk, or having fun, and playing at the dog park. Bessie Mae was rescued from a very high kill shelter in L.A. by Scratch My Belly rescue, who saw the beauty in this special little lady, and realized that a three-legged dog had very little chance of ever being adopted. They believe Bessie Mae must've been a companion to a senior citizen because she loves individual attention and lots of lap time. She may do well in a home with older kids, as well, who can respect her slight disability. Bessie is currently being cared for by a foster family with three other dogs and four kids...she's loving every minute of her life, and we hope to keep it that way. To find out more about adopting Bessie Mae, or to learn about fostering another dog in danger, who could use a safe environment until a forever home can be found, please go to Scratchmybelly.org or call the rescue at (858) 344-2423.

Neutered, vaccinated, microchipped. Moo is a sweet, gentle and quiet boy who needs someone to love and commit to caring for him for the rest of his life, as he is partially blind. Even with diminished vision, this little Shih Tzu is friendly and very independent, he's perfectly behaved, good with kids as well as other types of pets, as he's been around several in his foster home. Other than his less-than-stellar eyesight, he is very healthy and easy to love. He was found abandoned on the side of the road where he had been left with nothing more than a collar and a leash. Scratch My Belly Rescue stepped in to help him find his forever home...someone who wants to spoil him with scrambled eggs and burgers every now and then. If you're interested in adopting this wonderful companion, please contact Scratchmybelly.org and you can learn more about him, as well as fill out an adoption application on their website, or call their director, Frederica, at 858-344-2423. There is an adoption fee for Moo, but he's been neutered, vaccinated and microchipped, and any fees collected will offset his medical costs.

Mingus is a fun and friendly Great Dane-hound mix looking for a fun and active family who will appreciate his goofy personality and his lanky limbs! The Rescued Dog pulled this 5-month-old puppy out of the Humane Society of Imperial County. Mingus is weighing about 45-pounds now, and could easily double in size. If you're a fan of the big dogs, Mingus could be your boy. His foster family reports that he's very friendly with all dogs, kids, and adults, plus he's housebroken. He's an energetic, playful, loving guy who is impossible to resist. He's still learning to walk on a leash, but has a good start on his leash training and will be fun and easy to continue to train. Mingus is also a great age to start basic training with his forever family...and given his growth potential, his new family will definitely want to make sure he gets some solid training under his belt. He's already got a good start, and he's naturally polite and obedient. He still displays some typical puppy behaviors, but is easily corrected and really just wants to make people happy. ]If you're looking for a friendly guy to join you on all of life's adventures, fill out an application at TheRescuedDog.org to schedule a meet and greet!

Meet Ty, he's a super loving and friendly 5-year-old Yorkie mix. He's fun and playful and will do well in a home with another dog or kids. His foster family reports that he's house-trained, and the perfect indoor dog who is trustworthy when left alone at home, and he sleeps quietly in his bed all night. He's also not a barker and smart as a whip. It didn't take him any time at all to learn to stay off the furniture. Ty was purchased by his previous family at a puppy store. But recently they brought in a new bulldog who didn't like Ty, so they were keeping Ty in their car. Fortunately, a neighbor noticed him and convinced the family to let her take Ty to a rescue who can find him a proper home. Now, Ty is in a loving Scratch My Belly foster home where he loves everyone he meets, big and small, including all other dogs. He's fun on walks, and will be an excellent dog to take to Dog Beach. As a plus, his foster mom says he doesn't shed much as all, and might be a great choice for someone who's sensitive to dog fur. If you're interested in meeting Ty, please contact Scratch My Belly rescue at (858) 344-2423 or go to Scratchmybelly.org for more information. He's neutered, vaccinated, microchipped and ready for a home!

Cha Cha is 5 years old, and she wound up at the shelter as a stray. She's so sweet and enjoys the company of other dogs, but the noise and activity at the shelter is making her quite nervous. She's the perfect size for a lap dog and would probably be best in a quiet home, or at least a home with older, more gentle kids. If you want to come to the shelter to meet Cha Cha, they have a play yard where you can get to know her, and if you have a dog already, you can let them interact together. The El Cajon Animal Shelter is located on North Marshall Street, two blocks north of Fletcher Parkway. They're open Tuesday thru Saturday 10am to 5pm, and closed Sundays and Mondays. Don't forget their amazing $20 adoption fees only last until Saturday, so there's never been a better time to check out the animals at this facility!

Sweet Pea was rescued with a litter of her 8 newborn puppies, and her puppy from a previous litter. Of course all the adorable pups have been adopted, but here sits Sweet Pea, patiently waiting for someone to give her a chance. Sweet Pea has been in a loving foster home for about a month. Her teeth are worn down from a previous life of being tethered and left with nothing to do but chew on her chain. She's just learning that it's okay to be inside the home, and still gets a little nervous indoors. Her foster family lets her hang outside when they're at work, but she comes in when they come home from work She's one of the most calm, well behaved girls you will ever meet. She's very sweet with adults and children alike, she's good with cats, and great with dogs. She doesn't play rough with other dogs, she's really more content to just hang out with them, and maybe engage in a game of tug-o-war. Sweet Pea is a great companion dog. She travels well in the car, and walks nicely on a leash. She's healthy, spayed, microchipped and vaccinated. Animal Rescuers Without Borders asks a $250 adoption fee, but they use that donation to help cover Sweet Pea's costs, and if anything is left over, they immediately put it toward saving the next dog or cat in need.

Meet Briggs, WDR's resident hippo! He's big, beefy and such a sweetie - built like a linebacker :) Briggs looks like an American Bully, a blend of bulldog and pit bull. He's a cool blue tricolor, and his former owner abandoned him at the shelter saying he was too much energy. YA RIGHT! This dog is anything but. :) Briggs is about 4 years young and weighs 80ish pounds. He came to us in bedraggled shape but with clean living, nutritious food and supplements, his coat has returned to full shiny health. He seems to have lacked any training before being taken in by WDR. Briggs has been working on his manners and behavior and has come far in the very skilled care of one of our best foster homes. We saw the potential in this stocky gem of a dog and just needed the right people to help him realize it, and he's turned into one of their favorite dogs of all time! Briggs gets along great with dogs of all sizes and really enjoys playtime with pals. He loves belly rubs, is super loyal, and as you might imagine he's something of a people magnet. Good thing he loooooves the attention!! Beefcake Briggs is looking for a forever family with an above average understanding of dogs; a family who lives a leadership lifestyle with your well mannered animals. He needs people willing to set boundaries - for life, not just a few months - in a quieter child free home environment. A well matched, calm adult companion dog might be nice but not necessary for this people lover. He's NOT cat tolerant. Briggs has been learning that Nothing In Life Is Free - NILIF. This lifestyle philosophy will help Briggs continue to excel in his forever future with YOU :) He's working on not jumping up when he gets excited and although it's a tough habit to break, he's really excelling. Oh, and be prepared for LOTS of kisses!

Witchy, named after an Eagles song, is available for adoption at the Greyhound Adoption Center. She's 4-years-old, warm, loving, and playful with people she trusts...but she's having difficulty showing that side of her personality when potential adopters meet her She tends to shy away and just doesn't show well, so this is really her big chance to sell herself. She'd do best in a home with mature, mellow dogs or cats, and she'll make an excellent addition to a home with older kids and dog savvy adopters. Dogs from the Greyhound Adoption Center have a complete medical evaluation, are spayed or neutered, vaccinated, microchipped, and get their teeth cleaned, plus they're evaluated for temperament and personality.

Melissa
Breed: Standard Agouti Rabbit
Age: Between 6 months to a year
Sex: Spayed Female
Organization: San Diego House Rabbit Society
Phone: (858) 565-2869
Website: www.sandiegorabbits.org

Melissa is one of 79 rabbits rescued by San Diego House Rabbit Society from a HOARDING situation in Warner Springs in July. She was one of the few lucky bunnies with minimal health issues and will soon be available for adoption after her spay. Melissa is a sweet, but shy girl. Because of her previous life of neglect, she's going to need a patient loving family who will help bring her out of her shell. Maybe finding the right bunny boyfriend, will give her the confidence she needs to blossom.


HansClick Hans' picture to see his video on San Diego 6-CW Animal House!

Name:
Hans (Pet ID #22311)
Breed: Miniature Schnauzer
Age: 3 years old
Sex: Neutered Male
Organization: El Cajon Animal Shelter, 1275 N. Marshall Street
Phone: (619) 441-1580 or (619) 579-3375
Webpage: http://www.adoptapet.com/shelter69341-pets.html

Hans, and his brother Franz, who isn't here today, are both available for adoption at the El Cajon Animal Shelter, where they wound up after getting lost and not finding their way home. They're both 3-year-old Miniature Schnauzers with the same happy, loving and affectionate personalities. It'd be awesome to keep them together, but it's understood that not everyone wants to adopt two dogs, so they can be separated, if necessary. Either one of these boys would be a wonderful companion, and an excellent family pet. Hans and Franz love to be around people and other dogs. They're house-trained and would probably do well in either a house or a condo environment, and they enjoy taking daily walks. Hans is good with all people, and also loves other dogs. The very reasonable adoption fee of just $80 includes neutering, microchip, and vaccinations. Please come visit Hans And Franz at the El Cajon Animal Shelter, 1275 N. Marshall Street, two blocks north of Fletcher Parkway. You can take one or both pups out into the play yard and get better acquainted. The shelter is open Tuesday through Saturday from 10am to 5pm, closed Sundays and Mondays.


JJ Click on JJ's picture to see his video on San Diego 6-CW Animal House (and Click here to see JJ on KUSI GOOD MORNING SAN DIEGO!


Name:
JJ
Breed: Shepherd mix
Age: 6 years old
Sex: Neutered Male
Organization: Animal Rescuers Without Borders
Phone: (619) 977-3593 (call or text)
Website: ARWOB.org

JJ is an 80-pound, people-loving Shepherd mix who was rescued last December by Border Patrol who found him starving in an isolated area near the US Border. He muzzle was, and still is, covered by scars that tell the story of how hard his life must've been before he was rescued. He's been available for adoption for almost 10-months, and ideally we'd love to find him a permanent home, but even if there's someone out there who could foster him until a forever home could be found, that would be great. As an incentive, Animal Rescuers Without Borders has reduced his adoption fee to $50, and he's been neutered, microchipped, fully vaccinated and vet checked. He'd be perfect for a family without cats, and one with older kids. His last foster home consisted of an adult couple, a teen, and he also lived with several dogs. Since he's an alpha dog, he'd be great in a one-dog family, or one with a submissive female dog. He's probably not the best candidate for playing at the dog park. He's housebroken, crate-trained and rides well in a car. JJ loves his squeaky toys, he'll bring them to you when you come home, and he'll rest his head in your lap while you pet him.

Breed: Pomeranian/Spaniel
Age: 2.5 years old
Sex: Neutered Male
Organization: The Rescued Dog
Phone: (619) 356-3390
Website: TheRescuedDog.org

Bentley is a fun and friendly guy who came to The Rescued Dog from the Humane Society of Imperial County. Bentley's foster family reports that he's happiest when he's out and about for a walk. During his walks he's a curious, friendly guy who loves to smell things and greet other walkers, both humans and canines, along the way. Bentley has never met a dog he hasn't liked, and gets along great with the other dogs in his foster home. Bentley also loves his people, and is quite a snuggler. He's good about coming when you call him, and he'd love to learn more tricks and skills with his new forever family. Bentley weighs in at 7-pounds full grown. He is 2 1/2 years old as of this month. If you'd like to meet this little pint-sized Pomeranian/Cocker Spaniel mix, please fill out an application at TheRescuedDog.org and an adoption coordinator will be in touch to schedule a meet and greet. We also encourage you to contact them even if you can only foster a dog temporarily. Unfortunately, their ability to pull dogs out of municipal shelters is limited to the number of foster families they have, so please consider getting involved in volunteering.

Name:
Skye
Breed: American Staffordshire Terrier
Age: 4 years young
Sex: Spayed Female
Organization: Paws of Coronado
Phone: (619) 522-7371
Website: PassionForPitties.com

Skye has been at the Coronado Animal Shelter for more than 6 months. She's a shelter staff favorite, and while they would love to have her continue to be a Coronado Paws Pitty Ambassador, it's in her best interest to be adopted and become part of a loving family. Skye is amazing with all humans, however, because of her size and energy level, they don't recommend a family with small children. Though older teenagers would be fine. She's a VERY strong gal, and will need a strong handler or dog-savvy family. And while she may be okay living with smaller dogs or even a male dog, she'd be most ideal as an only pet. She seems to want to avoid cats altogether. She loves going on walks, and her favorite pastime is cuddling, so if you won't cuddle with her, she's not the girl for you. Skye is spayed, current on vaccinations and microchipped. Please contact PAWS of Coronado or go to PassionForPitties.com for an application. Both organizations are working together to get Skye out of the Coronado Shelter, and into a forever home. Even if you're not ready to make a permanent commitment, a temporary foster home would be greatly welcomed into the program. Please call for more information.


June BugClick on June Bug's picture to see her video on San Diego 6-CW Animal House!

Name:
June Bug
Breed: Maltese/Terrier Mix
Age: 10-11 months of age
Sex: Spayed Female
Organization: Maltese Rescue California
Phone: (760) 315-8770
Website: MalteseRescueCalifornia.org

June Bug was hit by a car, and thankfully, a witness scooped her up and took her to a nearby fire station, who then called for Animal Control. Since her owners never came to claim her, Maltese Rescue California was allowed to pull her from the shelter. She was limping and not bearing weight on her front leg, and X-rays failed to show any fractures. So she was given pain and anti-inflammatory medications, and soon she was walking on all four legs without any sign of discomfort. June Bug was examined by another vet and given a clean bill of health, and now that she's spayed, vaccinated and microchipped, she's ready for a loving family. This little Maltese mix puppy is full of life…happy, loving and eager to learn. She'd be great in a family with children, and can spend hours playing with other dogs. Because of her energy level, another canine companion is strongly recommended to keep her occupied. She's pretty much house trained but still needs some guidance, and she barks like a tough guy when strangers approach her people.

Webpage: http://www.adoptapet.com/shelter69341-pets.html

Ginger is a happy, friendly and confident, 1-year-old Beagle/Boston Terrier mix who just wants to have fun! Her previous owner took her to the El Cajon Animal Shelter because she was too energetic for apartment living. This is the type of girl who loves to play fetch, go on long walks, and would make an excellent hiking or jogging partner. She'll happily hop into the car and head out on any adventures with you, even if it's just exploring your own neighborhood. She likes to play with other dogs, so social time at the off-leash dog park would be awesome. And she'd make a good choice for a family who has older, dog-savvy kids to play with. Ginger is an affectionate pooch who appreciates attention, plus she's very smart and trainable...so she'll be happy to learn whatever you'd like to teach her. As a bonus, she's already house-broken, having lived in an apartment for the past year. If you have an active lifestyle or a yard where Ginger can play and get some exercise, please head to the El Cajon Animal Shelter on North Marshall Street, two blocks north of Fletcher Parkway. They're open Tuesday thru Saturday 10am to 5pm, and closed Sundays and Mondays, and well have a link to a list of all their adoptable pets on the CW6 Animal House page.

Phone: (619) 356-3390

This adorable, handsome little Schnauzer wound up at the Humane Society of Imperial County, and The Rescued Dog pulled him from the shelter and put him into their foster program here in San Diego. Jasper is quite a social butterfly. He loves meeting new people and making new dog friends. He gets along great with pretty much everyone, including cats and children! Jasper loves going to the dog park to hang out with his canine buddies, and though he gets little spurts of playful energy, he doesn't need too much action during the day. Jasper also enjoys a good walk and behaves like a gentleman on the leash. When the fun is over, this guy is an expert snuggler. His foster mom reports that he's goofy, very sweet, and makes funny noises to express himself! Jasper is 3 years old as of this month, and weighs in at a whooping 13-pounds, full-grown. Jasper is crate trained and house trained, and would love to work on learning some basic commands with his new family. If you're looking for a fun and friendly little snuggle bug, maybe Jasper is your guy! To meet him, please fill out an application at TheRescuedDog.org and an adoption coordinator will be in touch to schedule a meet and greet.

Age: 3 years old
Sex: Spayed Female
Organization: San Diego Department of Animal Control, 5821 Sweetwater Rd. in Bonita
Website: SDDAC.com
Phone: (619) 767-2675

Always smiling, always happy Mila is a 3-year old, 50-pound Pit Bull who has been at the animal shelter in Bonita for A YEAR! She hasn't always been such a pretty Pitty, as she arrived at the shelter weighing an emaciated 20-pounds. She gained weight rapidly...13-pounds in the first 10 days...and is now a bit of a chunky monkey. She's smart, trainable, and will do anything for a treat! Mila is a volunteer favorite, and her kennel card is covered in notes like "My girl," "Love her," and "Gives the best kisses." She has met many adults and children at adoption events, and has loved them all...she's all about people. Mila is quiet, playful, respectful, leash-trained, and rides nicely in the car. She enjoys playing with her toys, especially squeakies, as well as belly rubs and splashing in kiddie pools. Mila needs to be a solo dog, as she doesn't do well with other animals, but not everyone is cut out for multiple animals in one house. Sometimes, one dog is all it takes! Mila comes spayed, microchipped, vaccinated, and will go home with a gift basket of supplies and goodies...and YOU get to decide her adoption fee. The San Diego County Shelter is located at 5821 Sweetwater Road in Bonita, with literally hundreds of animals for adoption!

Phone: (877) HoundSavers or (877) 478-8364
Website: HoundSavers.org

Alabama is a 5-year-old retired greyhound residing at the Greyhound Adoption Center. She came from the Caliente racetrack in Mexico after registering an astounding 391 races during her lengthy career. Alabama can't live with cats or tiny dogs, but would be happy living with another dog over 30 pounds. Alabama is a happy, playful girl who will be a great companion for an active family with children. All dogs from the Greyhound Adoption Center have a complete medical evaluation, are spayed or neutered, vaccinated, microchipped, and get a thorough dental cleaning. They're evaluated for temperament and personality, and tested with cats, small dogs, and young children before being profiled for a home. Construction at the facility has forced them to cancel their August Open House; however, private kennel tours may still be arranged every day between the hours of 1 and 3 PM by appointment. It's a wonderful way to learn more about greyhound rescue, rehab, adoption, and volunteer opportunities.

Website: TheRescuedDog.org

If you've been looking for a friend who's a good listener, Radar is all ears! This Belgian Malinois Shepherd/Hound mix is just 4 months old, and weighed 15-pounds at of the beginning of August. His foster mom tells us that he has a perfect mix of fun energy, and gentleness. He's crate-trained and house-trained. With his good nature, and always-wanting-to-please attitude, he'll truly excel with a little training. He already has some of the basic commands under his belt, such as "come", "sit", "down", and "leave it". Radar is calm, confident, and almost human in his intelligence with a high ability to learn. He'd LOVE a family with young children. He'd also appreciate another canine companion, although he'd be okay as a solo dog as long as he gets lots of social time, maybe at the off-leash dog parks. Radar loves to be mentally stimulated with different toys and outdoor games to keep him occupied. Don't miss your chance to meet this perfect mix of playful, loving puppy and happy, mellow, old soul.

Bianca

Age: 1 year old
Sex: Spayed Female
Organization: The Rescue House
Phone: (760) 591-1211
Website: RescueHouse.org

Bianca and her one baby were found near the border and brought to Rescue House. Bianca took her job as Mom very seriously and has been a very doting, loving, and protective mother. Yet when baby's asleep…she plays with feathers and fetches her toys! Sometimes, if she feels you aren't noticing her, she'll gently nip your calf and then meow up at you. Bianca is talkative and has a lot to say. She'll meow, chirp, pip or call to you if you're in another room. She loves people, and will even socialize with guests. She prefers to have her feet planted on the ground, and gets squirmy if held for to long, which is why Rescue House volunteer, Kris, is holding her for me today. But she loves to cuddle on the bed, under the covers, or next to you on the couch. She's more focused on people than she is on other cats. She might be good company for a male kitty, but mostly she keeps to herself or hangs with her people. She's had minimal exposure to dogs and seemed uncomfortable around the one she did meet.

Oscar, named for the Oscar Meyer Weiner, is a 4 year old Dachshund and I'd love to say he gets to go back to a foster home after his TV appearance, but unfortunately, he goes back to a kennel in a shelter. So let's hope someone falls in love with him today and heads straight over to adopt him. Oscar is a happy and lovable little guy with a great disposition...he's even housebroken. He's playful, affectionate and loves to play fetch with his toys. He loves a good walk and will make an excellent exercise partner, plus he's very treat motivated. Oscar gets along well with other dogs and currently shares his kennel space with another dog buddy. He'd be a wonderful family pet, especially for a family with older, considerate kids. His adoption fee includes his microchip, full vaccinations, and neuter surgery. Please come visit Oscar at the El Cajon Animal Shelter, 1275 N. Marshall Street, two blocks north of Fletcher Parkway. You can take Oscar out into the play yard and get better acquainted. They're open Tuesday thru Saturday 10am to 5pm, and closed Sundays and Mondays.

Sex: Neutered Male (Black & white tuxedo) & Spayed Female (light gray tabby)
Organization: The Rescue House
Phone: (760) 591-1211
Website: RescueHouse.org

These kittens were brought to a vet in need of blood transfusions and other extreme measures to survive. Thanks to around the clock care by a Rescue House foster family, all the kittens in the litter are now bouncy, happy, and healthy! They're the sweetest kittens you'll ever meet. They were bottle fed babies, and therefore are completely bonded to humans. They're loving, playful, well-socialized, and love to pile into your lap. Georgina had the roughest go: her tail turned necrotic from low blood supply and needed a partial amputation. Her brother Gilly, named for the veterinarian who treated the litter, is a big boy for his age, and twice Georgina's size! Both of them scramble after laser lights and dangly toys. They're comfortable with other cats, small dogs, and older children. They've already been through so much, now they need a safe, loving forever home.

Leo
Breed: Cat - Domestic Medium Hair
Age: 3.5 Month old kitten
Sex: Male
Organization: SENA Animal Rescue
Phone: (858) 408-5658
Website: www.senarescue.org

A good Samaritan called us and said that a little handicapped kitten has crawled his way into her yard, and asked if we would be able to help.

Of course we did. He was around 5-6 weeks old and his hind legs seemed to be paralyzed, very weak and bony little guy. He was at the hospital for 2 weeks and within that time the veterinarians and technicians were watching over him. Unfortunately the veterinarian was not hopeful after seeing the xrays. At first they said he may have a fracture in his spine and never regain control. Leo was not able to control his hind legs and they split, he was not able to control his bladder and bowel movements either. But Leo was a fighter, and inspired everyone he met. He was SOOO happy and playful, he did not seem to be in any pain and he was just a love. His foster mom was in shock when he started using his hind legs after a couple of days of taking him home.

After a visit with a neurologist everything changed!! The neurologist said it is probably a congenital defect, he also noted some mal-nutrition and advised on good food and exercise. Leo was so playful and cute at the neurologists office that he just won over the entire staff!

Now Leo is almost 3- 4 months old, has control over his bladder and bowel and uses the litter box all the time...with an occasional accident. He runs, climbs like a ninja kitty, plays like there's no tomorrow, bullies other cats, plays with the dogs, rumbles so loud when he is cuddling, and is just such a little bundle of joy. He legs still split apart on slippery flooring...but he has built up strength, and gets around just fine. He may never jump, but he has made such miraculous improvements that we're not ruling it out.

Leo
needs an owner with the same determination as he has...to live a long happy life, with a FOREVER family to look out for him. His adoption fee includes neuter, vaccinations and microchip, and amounts only to a small fraction of the vet expenses he has incurred.

Chance and Bender are a bonded pair of middle aged Pitties who grew up in a family with children. Sadly their family moved out of their home right before July 4th and had nowhere for the boys to go other than the shelter. Due to overcrowding at the shelter on the 4th of July weekend, because of the fireworks, these two were scheduled to be euthanized. Lionel's Legacy had to step in and give these loving boys a second chance...so they rescued them from the shelter, and now they're in boarding while the rescue organization looks for either a FOSTER family or a permanent adopter. Chance and Bender are house trained, very easy going, and would be very happy being your cuddle partner... especially if you have kids. They'd do best in a home with a yard or a person willing to take them for walks to get some exercise. They're both up to date on vaccines, microchipped, neutered and ready to make your family complete!

Meet Moo Moo! He's a super friendly 1-year-old neutered male cat who is available for adoption from the El Cajon Animal Shelter. The shelter participated in the latest "Clear The Shelters" event, but unfortunately, Moo Moo is one of the few pets left behind. He can't get enough attention...he just adores people, and the reason he's at the shelter is because his previous owner became ill...to the point she could no longer take care of him. He's fine with other cats and will most likely be good with kids, as well. Moo Moo is so sweet, and we hope this TV opportunity will encourage someone to come out and meet him at the shelter, which is located at 1275 North Marshall Street in El Cajon...two blocks north of Fletcher Parkway. They're open Tuesday thru Saturday 10am to 5pm, closed Sundays and Mondays. Moo will truly be a perfect addition to any family!

Website: SDTurtle.org

Chantilly is a 15-year-old female California Desert Tortoise for adoption from the San Diego Turtle And Tortoise Society. She has a sweet disposition, and loves it when people pay attention to her. A potential adopter should know that she requires a minimum 20-by-20 foot outdoor area with some sort of shelter, like a dog house, so she can sleep and get away from the sun. She needs water and shade, and she eats weeds, cactus, dry leafy greens and other plants. Tortoises also hibernate from November through March. Desert Tortoises are federally protected, and legal to own, however it's illegal to take them out of the desert, or return them when you don't want them anymore. And since they can live such a long time, that poses a problem trying to find them homes once they're abandoned.

Meet Whiskey, a handsome 2-year-old, short-haired cat for adoption from the El Cajon Animal Shelter. He's an easy-going boy who truly enjoys human companionship. He got his name, Whiskey, because he has amber colored eyes that look like the color of whiskey. He was turned into the shelter because his previous owner travels a lot, and felt he was unable to give Whiskey the time and attention that such an affectionate indoor house cat requires. Please consider coming to meet Whiskey in the cat room at the shelter, located on North Marshall Street in El Cajon. We're certain you'll fall in love with him once you see how playful he is. He'll knock his toys out of his kennel just to get him to pass them back. Of course, Whiskey and all the cats available for adoption at the shelter are spayed or neutered, vaccinated, and microchipped. Whiskey also has the wonderful quality of being completely litter-box-trained. Please tell your friends and family about Whiskey, and help us get him out of a kennel and into a loving forever home.

Video of Domino playing with another foster dog

Domino is a handsome little champagne-blond chihuahua for adoption from Animal Rescuers Without Borders. He's 10-pounds, at 1.5 years of age. He's a perfect gentleman, 100% housebroken and very crate-trained. He's excellent with both cats and dogs and also loves to play with children. He will play, play, play, but when it's time to settle down, he'll crash with you in front of the TV like a couch-potato. He'll be an excellent family dog and a good candidate for playing at the dog park, plus he enjoys riding in cars and never gets car-sick. He's been available for adoption for 7-months, and yet nobody has filled out an application, even after they reduced his adoption fee to $50.

This is fabulous, sweet Norma! She is an easy-going, quiet dog who gets excited for her walks. She is a 3-year-old, 45-pound Labrador/Basset Hound mix who gets along with all other dogs she meets, and she loves napping almost as much as she loves her walks.

Norma is spayed, microchipped, and up to date on vaccines. Her adoption fee is $250 which will be used to help rescue another dog. Go to www.secondchancedogrescue.org and the foster mom will contact you to set up a meet and greet. Of course, none of this would be possible without the fosters who house all of the dogs. If anyone is interested in fostering a dog, they can go online and fill out a foster application.

Organization: The Rescue House
Phone: (760) 591-1211
Website: Rescuehouse.org

Scout has been bounced around a bit lately. He came to The Rescue House after his guardian divorced and moved away without him. Sadly, she had taken him in from a moving military family just five months earlier. Scout is a lovely, cuddly boy with a sweet temperament, who quickly charmed all the Rescue House volunteers. He's just so happy to be in their company, and receive attention and love...for that's clearly the main focus of Scout's life: love and companionship. This social man brings joy wherever he goes. He'll lie in your lap while you pet him He'll be at the door to greet you when you come home, sleep with you at night, come when called, or when the treat bag is rustled, and he's always in a good mood. We don't know Scout's thoughts about other cats or dogs, but he's amazing with kids of all ages, including toddlers. Scout is a fabulous kitty looking for an equally fabulous home.

Website: Rescuehouse.org

Dot represents an entire litter of adoptable kittens who look very similar. The black-and-white siblings, along with their black-and-white mom, were rescued from an overcrowded local shelter when they were very tiny. Thankfully there was a Rescue House foster family willing to help watch over the mom and her babies until they were healthy enough to be adopted. The mischievous collective of loving, playful, curious kittens love toys and playing games. They think humans and other cats are awesome! Dot and her sister Susie are a little more independent, yet still demanding of attention and affection. They love the older cats in their foster home and would be happiest with a feline companion and playmate because they've never been alone, With a proper introduction, all the kittens would probably be good with cat-friendly dogs.

Organization: The Rescue House
Phone: (760) 591-1211
Website: Rescuehouse.org

These kittens were found alone at an office in North Park when they were only 3 weeks old, and too young to eat on their own. Some kind people tried to care for them initially, but didn't realize the intense care they needed at that age. They were moved into the Rescue House foster program with an experienced bottle-feeder, and soon began to thrive! Named after Harry Potter characters, these adorable, super sweet kittens purr as soon as you pick them up. They love to play and wrestle with all kinds of toys. Tom Meowdle loves toy mice and will growl if anyone gets too close when he's holding his mouse. After playing hard, he likes to snuggle up on a blanket with his brother, Ron Fleasley. They've never spent a day alone, and ideally they'd be adopted together or into a home with another friendly cat. They may even be okay with dogs and they're comfortable with children who know how to hold them properly. If you'd like to meet these charmers, and let them cast a spell on you, go to RescueHouse.org to fill out an application, or to find out about their many adoption centers around the county.

Website: HoundSavers.org

Bock is a 2-year-old ex-racing greyhound for adoption at the Greyhound Adoption Center. He was rescued from the Caliente racetrack with an injured foot, and during a routine vet checkup, they discovered Bock is nearly blind. Somehow this amazing dog managed to race all that time without his condition being detected. He's acclimated so well to his diminishing eyesight that he even fooled the shelter staff and volunteers. Normally, Greyhounds are sighthounds, and renowned for having exceptional eyesight. There's no treatment for his condition, but it's not painful. We hope to find him a loving forever home while he still has some sight, so he can adjust to his surroundings before it's completely gone.

Fawn is an exceptional puppy with a wonderful personality. She originally wound up at the Humane Society of Imperial County as a stray. She already knew some basic commands, and was well on her way to being a great addition to a forever family. At 4 months of age, Fawn was adopted by a family who returned her 5 months later when they deployed. We're sad she lost her family, but thankfully there was a foster home available, and she was able to join The Rescued Dog's foster program, instead of going back to a shelter. Initially shy, Fawn warms up quickly to show you her sweet and spunky side. She's very playful with her foster family, including 2 dogs and a cat, and her previous family had children. We'd like her to be adopted by a family with other pets to keep her company. Fawn is very smart and knows most of her basic commands, and would excel if you continued her training classes. She's 9-months-old, 25-pounds, fun, loving, affectionate and energetic!

Rex is a 2-year-old American Bulldog/Pittie mix for adoption from It's The Pits Rescue. When they initially rescued Rex, he had to have entropion eye surgery to correct a horrible, painful condition in both eyes. The vet then discovered that he had a mid-grade heart murmur, so Rex underwent a successful heart surgery. He also has a mild form of epilepsy which is treated with medication. It's well-controlled, but there is a possibility of seizures. He's a super mellow guy who loves everything: cats, dogs, kids. They even use him to calm the other nervous dogs at their adoption events. He currently lives with other Pit Bulls, and a kitty, all of whom he loves to sleep and cuddle with. He'd do best in a home WITH other pets. He's not a super active guy...he'd rather have a picnic with you on the beach, than go on a hike or run. Vigorous activity just isn't his thing...he's a complete couch potato who loves long naps. Rex is a great ambassador for the Breed, and would enjoy accompanying you everywhere you go.

This is Brady's second time being featured on CW6 News. He's a practically perfect dog in every way, so I'm just not sure why there isn't a waiting list to adopt him. Of course, last time we featured him, he was pretty nervous and probably didn't show very well. But Brady IS a super sweet family dog who loves affection and gets along great with other dogs and even cats! He's a mix of Great Pyrenees, Anatolian Shepherd and Labrador Retriever...three very popular breeds. He's just 2-year-old, with a playful personality and he'd make an excellent companion for someone who enjoys running or hiking. His foster family says he does well on a leash, is mindful, well-behaved, and enjoys accompanying them for lunch. He's completely housebroken, with good manners indoors, and he stays off of the furniture. Please fill out an adoption application at GreatPyrRescue.org, where you can also find out about becoming a temporary foster family for a gentle giant if you're just not quite ready for a long term commitment.

Meet Joshua...an active pup who is house trained and working on his house manners. At 1 year of age, Joshua is ready start obedience training to learn more tricks and commands. He may be too much dog for small children as he's a pretty happy boy who could knock them over when he runs around. Sweet Joshua is very social and playful with other dogs, he's very athletic and loves to wrestle and play with the resident dog in his foster home. He sleeps nicely all night long on his dog bed, but his foster family crates him when he's home alone because he may chew on shoes if you leave them out. He IS getting better at playing with his toys and leaving other things alone. He's young, smart, and a quick learner. Joshua loves to go on daily walks, taking trips to Fiesta Island, and the parks and beaches. If you're looking for a running partner, this boy would love to join you! Joshua can jump a 4-5 ft fence so he really needs a yard with fencing that's at least 6-feet or taller.

Website: www.pbrsd.org

Hitch's story is quite sad. He was found living in squalor after being abandoned in an apartment after a family moved out. He was left to scrounge through trash for ketchup packages to eat. He was literally starving, and that has created a fear in him of being without food. Because of this, he can be a little protective of food and treats. While he plays with other dogs, and currently lives with another dog, he's still learning that he won't be allowed to starve again. Pit Bull Rescue San Diego thinks he might be better as an only pet or with someone experienced in resource guarding. Hitch loves to snuggle with his human and canine friends. Hitch sleeps on his back with his cheeks & gums flopping open. He also makes his foster family laugh by burying himself in the blankets. He's housebroken, crate trained, and learning basic commands. His foster family wants him to find someone who will let him snuggle up on the couch, and take him on daily walks. Read more about Hitch, and submit an adoption application, at pbrsd.org. Check the events page for upcoming adoption events when you can come out to meet him.

Meet Chewbacca, a handsome, friendly boy in urgent need of a new foster home, as his foster dad deploys in June!!! We like to call him Chewie and believe it or not, he's even cuter in the fur :) He's a happy pup of 2-years and the perfect size at 50-pounds. We're not sure what he's made of, other than tons of fun and laughter. He has the looks of a pit bull blend with some shepherd or retriever mixed in, and he LOVES water! Turn on the hose and instead of running, Chewie figures that's the signal to play! Our golden kid with the widow's peak is a sweet and gentle boy. He gets so excited to see his people that his tail wags wildly for at least two minutes (even if they're just walking in from another room). Chewie's super playful and enjoys the company of a well matched dog friend. He's not a fan of cats but sure hopes to have a playful dog pal who likes to cuddle too. He's learned to be a great house companion and he's super treat motivated. It's funny how his hearing improves when there's food involved! He's crate trained, house broken, and good at entertaining himself with toys when it's time to chill out. Chewie hopes his people will like to play fetch 'cuz he's great at retrieving the ball....over and over and over. He's sure to keep you in stitches with his goofy antics and puppy fun :)

Like most dogs, Chewie loves walks and needs daily exercise to thrive and grow. A semi-active family willing to provide leadership and structure will help this darling boy mature into one fine adult. If you're a fun loving family who enjoys doing things with your furkids too, then get in touch and meet Chewiepooh. He'll snag your heart and hopefully a forever place with you! And if you're not ready for a lifelong commitment, please ask us about fostering Chewbacca!!

Little Milo is a handsome mini lop boy, just over 6 months old. This sweet boy was found wandering a San Diego neighborhood and taken in by a nice family who understood that bunnies should not be outside like that. They cared for him while looking for his owners, but no one ever stepped forward to claim him. The family could not keep him long term so relinquished him. Milo is a sweet guy; alternately mellow and sleepy, then active and playful. He loves attention and getting pets, but does not like being held. Milo has been neutered and is now really good with his litter box. He loves toys, playing on cardboard boxes, and enjoying his yummy evening salads. He's liking the "house rabbit" lifestyle! Milo is best suited to an adult home or one with children over 8 years old.

He is fine with cats but may be uncomfortable around dogs To adopt, visit SanDiegoRabbits.org/adoption and complete the online Adopter Profile. If you are new to house rabbits you may be asked to attend our Bunny 101 class prior to adopting a bunny.

After surgery and a very lengthy and tedious recovery, he's finally medically cleared for adoption. All greyhounds at the Center are fully evaluated for temperament and personality before they are profiled for a home, and while Bowie has not yet been cat tested, he interacts well with large and small dogs and would enjoy a home with older children who would be mindful of his injury. Thanks to donations, the Greyhound Adoption Center is able to help dozens of greyhounds with broken legs. Ten of their fifty residents are currently recovering from racing injuries. Most go on to enjoy full lives as family pets, as soon as they're spayed or neutered, vaccinated, microchipped, and get their teeth cleaned. Come out to one of their monthly Open Houses and tour their facility to learn more about rescue, rehab, adoption and volunteer opportunities.

Keegan As featured on the Mighty 1090!


Name: Keegan
Breed: American Staffordshire Terrier mix
Age: 14 months old
Sex: Neutered Male
Organization: It's The Pits
Phone: (858) 484-0985 or (858) 220-7546
Website: www.itsthepits.org

Keegan loves people and other dogs. He is wonderful and so very friendly. And did I say handsome?? Keegan is also completely potty trained, and perfect in his crate. He LOVES other dogs, he currently lives with two Pit Bulls and regularly attends daycare at Camp Run-a-Mutt. He loves to cuddle with his foster Mommy and foster doggy siblings. He's very well socialized and loves walks on the beach and having dinner at restaurants. Lucky for Keegan an It's The Pits volunteer spotted him at a shelter just hours before he was scheduled to be euthanized. Unfortunately, Keegan is one of thousands of adoptable Pitties in Southern California, so he has a LOT of competition. Plus, because we don't want these poor dogs to fall into the wrong hands, ITP has to be extra careful about potential adopters. So, even though Keegan is perfect in every way, it's a real challenge finding him a loving family of his own.

Pirate
Breed: German Shepherd/Cattle Dog Mix
Age: 8 years old
Sex: Neutered Male
Organization: Coastal German Shepherd Rescue San Diego
Phone: (858) 779-9149
Website: http://coastalgsrsd.org/

Pirate is a shy, friendly boy who came to CGSRSD in January 2016. He's a bit on the thin side, but we are working on that. Once he's comfortable in his setting, he's tends to develop a better appetite and beefs up a bit. Pirate is in training knows his basic commands. Pirate loves being petted and is OK with being brushed. You can tell that he wasn't allowed on the furniture in his past life, because he will not go on furniture unless invited. He is a submissive and respectful dog, and gets along with his foster siblings (currently a female GSD and a Yorkie). Pirate barks at cats when on a walk, so we don't know if he'd like them in "his" home. We don't know if he's ever been around kids. For a "more mature" dog, Pirate has a lot of energy. Pirate loves to play, but plays gently. He walks nicely on a leash; in fact, he LOVES to go for a walk. Pirate is crate-trained, but also sleeps well and hangs out with his foster siblings outside of the crate. He can sometimes be a bit of a "Nervous Nelly," and would probably do best with at least one other confident medium-sized or large dog who likes to play. Come meet Pirate and other Shepherds every Saturday from 11 to 2 at the Del Mar PETCO on Via De La Valle (except the last Saturday of the month).

Phone: (619) 441-1580 or (619) 579-3375


Wanda is a 6-year-old Pit Bull Terrier who just craves love and human companionship. She has a beautiful temperament, with the perfect combination of gentleness and playfulness. She takes treats very gently and respectfully, she's working on getting some basic training under her belt, and she's already house-trained to be an indoor dog. The volunteers say she walks nicely on the leash. I understand she's one of the favorites at the shelter, so she gets individual attention from staff and volunteers who give her lots of hugs and scratches behind the ears. Wanda would do best in a home where she can be an only dog, and they also recommend that any kids be a little older, because she is quite a large dog. Wanda is located at the El Cajon Animal Shelter, 1275 N. Marshall Street and they're open Tuesday through Saturday. They have a play yard, so you can take the dogs out of the kennels, and really get to know them before you make a decision. If Wanda is the girl for you, her ID# is 21474, and of course, she's already spayed, microchipped, temperament tested and given a clean bill of health.

Chiquis is a beautiful two year old Shepherd mix. This gorgeous girl was turned in to a high-kill shelter by a family when they moved and decided not to take her with them. Their loss is your gain! Chiquis is great with kids and other dogs, but cats should not be a part of her forever home as she has too much fun chasing them. Chiquis would love to find a family where she can enjoy being cherished and involved in family activities...even if it's just watching TV on the couch. She'd loves walking and hiking, and just needs a comfy dog bed to sleep on at night. At 2 years of age, Chiquis is a quick study and eager to continue her training with you.

Sex: Neutered Male
Organization: Dogs Fur Days
Phone: (619) 665-1993
Website: DogsFurDays.org

Meet Lentini, a darling little tripod, especially deserving of a loving family! He's a 6-year-old, 18-pound Jack Russell Terrier. Lentini was found as a very dirty, hungry, thirsty stray in the Bonita area. He was born with a congenital deformity in his left front leg, so he was overlooked by potential adopters for an entire month in the shelter. Dogs Fur Days decided he deserved to be in foster home while he awaits a forever family! His "wing" leg is not painful, and he uses it for balance and leverage. He gets around just fine, and can jump up on the couch, climb stairs, and take walks. He enjoys dog beach, the dog park, car rides, sidewalk cafes, and just hanging out with his people. While Len is not particularly fond of large dogs, he's GREAT with other small dogs, and would also do fine living as a solo dog, as long as he has at least one family member who is home a lot. His $200 adoption fee includes a full dental cleaning, his dog license, vaccinations, microchip, collar, harness, leash, and vet check. And rest assured, that money will be spent on rescuing the next dog, so it's a well-spent donation. If you'd like to meet Lentini, please fill out an adoption application at DogsFurDays.org!

Dahlia is the type of dog who'd love to spend time playing fetch or joining you on a long walk before settling down at home for the night. Because of her size and playful energy level, she'd do best in a home with kids who are at least 10 years of age. Dahlia gets along with most dogs, but she's not recommend for a home with cats.

Masie is approximately 8-years-old and has a cataract in her left eye (as you can see in the pics), but she doesn't let it slow her down at all. She is definitely a good "plug-and-play" pooch - when you're ready to go for a walk or go to the dog park - she's ready to go. Or if you just want to stay at home and snuggle - she's always ready for that, too. She's very smart and picks up on things quickly. Her foster family has had her since Valentine's day and she has had no problem learning pretty advanced manners like "go to your crate", sitting while her dinner is being prepared, and waiting to be "released". She sits patiently while they put the leash on her, etc. Overall, she's the ideal dog for nearly any family. A very special girl who has captured the hearts of all her foster family members.

Name:
Baxter
Breed: Holland Lop Rabbit
Age: 5 years old
Sex: Neutered Male
Organization: San Diego Companion Rabbit Society, 4807 Mercury St. in Kearny Mesa
Phone: (858) 565-2869
Website: SanDiegoRabbits.org

Baxter is an adorable 4-pound Holland Lop, given up because he was spraying, marking his territory and not respecting the litter box rules. The simple fix for that was to neuter him, which the San Diego Companion Rabbit Society did right away. Now, he's a super friendly, active bunny who love his toys, flipping over cardboard boxes, eating his salad and then running in circles around his pen. Baxter would be best with adults, or a family with older children, because he's not a fan of being picked up, and he's a bit too squirmy to hold. Contrary to popular belief, bunnies make awful Easter presents for small children. They're intelligent animals that need a lot of social interaction, and since they live 10-to-14 years, they'll obviously outlive a child's interest. Also, they're considered "exotic animals", so vet care is much more expensive than a dog or cat. If you're thinking about adopting a rabbit as a long-term pet, sign the family up for Bunny 101 classes at the shelter in Kearny Mesa. You may even want to volunteer as a family, or foster a rabbit temporarily. Go toSanDiegoRabbits.org for more information!

Pirate Joey is a super gentle and sweet boy who just loves attention. He came from a hoarding case where he led a rough life. Now he's a happy guy because he no longer has to worry about his next meal, about being warm and dry, or getting enough attention.

He loves to hang out under his cardboard box and lounge on his fleece bed. You can just tell he knows that he's safe now.

Our volunteers love this gentle boy and named him for the black "eye patch" on his left eye. It's so cute!

Pirate Joey is about 6 years old and would probably make a great companion to a sweet bunny girl. He lived with many rabbits and at some time probably had a friend but was single when he came to us.

Can you give this lovely older boy a home? Stop by to meet him and just see if he melts your heart the way he has ours...

She gets along great with other dogs, cats and children. She enjoys long walks and car rides, when she can look out the passenger side window and check out the world. Eleanor would love to have another dog in the home to play with. When excited, she hops on her hind legs and chirps like a birdie.

Devo was in a Gumi Kill Shelter in South Korea. A volunteer from Team Inch Sighthound Rescue of So. Korea saw him, but shortly thereafter, he disappeared from the shelter. He was found 10 days later in the mountains in the snow. He was taken back to shelter and the volunteer paid to get him out. She said he fit in her hands with no muscle at all...like a stuffed toy without the stuffing, totally sagging and empty. He was brought to a vet and posted on Facebook where Operation Greyhound saw him, and decided to bring him to USA. He arrived in January and is doing fantastic. He has grown an additional 10 lbs, his back legs are still weak and sometimes get crossed when he runs and he falls down and he requires help to get back up. Nevertheless, he loves to play with the big greyhounds and with toys. He is very smart and a real survivor. Devo is still going through physical therapy and medical care, but will be available for adoption The adoption fee will reflect the expenses which Operation Greyhound has incurred. If you want to meet Devo, Operation Greyhound visiting hours are from 10 am to 3 pm, 7 days a week.

She makes everyone laugh when she gets "zoomies" and runs as fast as she can. She loves to play fetch - she has a favorite ball that she'll keep bringing back to you to throw. She loves to be pet and snuggled and is a wonderful companion. She loves car rides. She can keep up with a jogger (and has learned to run alongside a bicycle), or is happy just going for a stroll. Her foster family thinks the perfect family for her would be one that can give her lots of love and attention. She gets sad when left by herself, so she would love to live with a family who is home a lot and will take her places. You can read more about Maddie, and submit an adoption application, at www.pbrsd.org. Check the events page for upcoming adoption event dates so you can come out to meet her in person.

Fiona is a mixed breed, approximately 3-4 years old, residing at the Greyhound Adoption Center in El Cajon. She was relinquished to GAC after being found as a stray and was identified to them as being a greyhound mix. Of course, she doesn't appear to be a greyhound mix at all, but regardless of her questionable pedigree, GAC had room and has been more than happy providing her with a temporary residence. But here she is, nearly two years later, still waiting for her forever home! FIona loves people and will sit and offer her paw for treats. She is playful, fun-loving, and eager to please. Fiona would enjoy a home with older children where she would be the only pet and have access to a yard where she can hunt bugs and chase butterflies.

All dogs from the Greyhound Adoption Center have a complete medical evaluation, are spayed or neutered, vaccinated, microchipped, and undergo a thorough dental cleaning. They are then fully evaluated for temperament and personality as well as tested with cats, small dogs, and children before being profiled for a home.

Name: Jake
Breed: Chihuahua
Age: 10-years-old
Sex: Neutered Male
Weight 4-pounds
Update: Jake has been adopted!

Rusty recently had a dental cleaning and has received lots of TLC, and has started to play with his toys and act like a puppy again. He loves his lap-time, going to dog parks, and just being a companion to a special person. He weighs just 7-pounds.

Rusty is part of Chihuahua Rescue's Silver Linings Program, where the Rescue organization retains ownership of the dog for the rest of his/her life, which means the rescue will pay for routine medical and any other necessary care the foster may not be financially able to provide. These are dogs who have very little chance of being adopted, yet the Silver Linings Program grants them sanctuary to live out their lives with a loving family. It's a win-win for both the dog, and the caregiver who wants a dog to love, but can't afford the costs...especially an expensive vet bill. To sponsor a Silver Linings dog, or to become a forever-foster family for one of these precious little souls, call (858) 277-3557 or e-mail Dog@RescueAChi.com.


QuinnAs featured on the mighty 1090 Pet Connection!

Name:
Quinn
Breed: Harlequin Rabbit mix
Age: 1 year old
Sex: Female - spayed
Organization: San Diego House Rabbit Society
Phone: (858) 565-2869
Website: www.sandiegorabbits.org

Quinn is sweet but shy girl, a little over 1 year old. She was part of a large litter of babies who were available for adoption. Quinn and her sister, Hannah were adopted and returned. Quinn is a shy girl and takes time to get used to you. She's active and loves to explore. She's litter-box-trained and keeps a tidy pen. She loves toys, including cardboard boxes, willow toys to chew, and rattle balls to roll around. Quinn is best suited to an adult home with experienced bunny lovers. Because she is so shy she needs a family who will accept her for who she is and give her plenty of time to settle in and get used to her new home. She'd make a great family bunny but needs a roomy exercise pen, at a minimum. She may do fine with other species such as cats or gentle dogs. To Adopt, visit SanDiegoRabbits.org and complete the Adopter Profile. You may be asked to attend our Bunny 101 class prior to adopting, but that's just so you get started on the right foot!

Cole is a very sweet, loving boy. He loves to cuddle with his foster mom and dad. He's very playful, curious and funny. He's also a lap cat. He's an active boy so it would be best if had a playmate. He gets along very well with his foster buddy Sammy and it would be great if they were adopted together but not mandatory. He's a smart boy and loves to watch his foster mom cook. His adoption fee includes all his shots and he's been neutered. We have a great video of Cole on our Website.

Captain Jack has been in foster care for over 400 days and is ready for a great family home. Unfortunately, SDTTS has SO MANY that it has been hard to get them all adopted. Captain Jack is healthy, friendly and eating well. He's looking for a home with a minimum area outdoors of 15 x 20 with a small little dog type house, water bowl and some grass and weeds. While he eats the natural grasses and weeds in the area, he also likes Romaine Lettuce, Cactus, Dark Greens, & Bermuda Grass Hay. SDTTS also provides several kinds of supplement foods to start off with. He will make a perfect pet for anyone with allergies and prefers an outdoor pet who can hang out with them while they garden. He will follow you around the yard and is friendly with children as well. For more info about Turtles & Tortoises and how to properly care for them, visit www.SDTurtle.org.

Willow came to us after she was found on someone�s roof in San Diego and turned over to the shelter. Willow, as you can imagine, was a strong flyer. Before even leaving the shelter, she took a short flight around the area before she calmed down and allowed us to trim her wing feathers. She has shown no signs of feather destructive behavior while being in the foster program. Willow immediately converted over to a pelleted diet and is starting to show some interest in her morning vegetables, fruit, and sprouts. She loves her afternoon nuts and will eat both pistachios and Brazil nuts, but prefers the Brazil nuts to the pistachios. She is not too excited about showers, but does tolerate a good soaking every-other day. She "steps up" very well, and although she is a bit nervous with men to have her head scratched, she has shown no aggression at all. She is a bit thin so we are offering her a few extra nuts for the calories to get the weight back on. Willow will make a wonderful companion for someone who has the time and space for a macaw.

Bailey the Lab As featured on San Diego 6-CW Animal House! (and Bailey was also featured on the Mighty 1090 Pet Connection, and @105MaxFM! ).

Name: Bailey
Breed: Labrador Retriever/Chocolate
Age: 7-8 years
Sex: Female\Spayed
Organization: Labradors & Friends
Phone: (619) 990-7455
Bailey's Webpage: http://www.labradorsandfriends.org/7641936

Bailey is one of the lucky ones�a 7-8 year old dog doesn't stand a chance of getting out of the shelter she was in, but a volunteer from Labradors & Friends fell in love with her. Bailey is a perfect little lady. She LOVES everyone, she's great with kids, other dogs but would be best in a home without cats. She's house trained, good on the leash, and knows some basic commands. She was clearly once someone's girl, but they tragically never came to claim her from the shelter. Even if you're not able to adopt Bailey at this time, perhaps you could offer her a warm and loving home for the holidays as a temporary foster family. Call or go to LabradorsAndFriends.org.

Sal is a 12-15-year old African Sulcata Tortoise available for adoption from the San Diego Turtle & Tortoise Society, after being found wandering the streets of San Diego. While Sal is 20-30 pounds now, he may reach 150-pounds full-grown, and he'll outlive all of us...possibly to the ripe old age of 100. He requires an outdoor enclosure, with a heated place to sleep at night, and he mostly eats grasses, weeds, kale, lettuce, roses and hibiscus.

TootsieAs featured on San Diego 6-CW Animal House!

Breed:
Umbrella Cockatoo
Age:
13 years old
Sex:
Female
Organization:
Parrot Education & Adoption Center (PEAC)
Phone:
(619) 287-8200


Tootsie came to Parrot Education and Adoption Center In April of this year. Before that, she'd been with the same family for her entire life...13 years...but when they moved into an RV, Tootsie couldn't adjust to the cramped living quarters and tiny cage, and she began to pull her chest and leg feathers out due to stress. She's now in a foster home where she has grown back a large amount of down, and they hope she'll soon regrow some of her feathers, as well. She's now able to sleep and reside in a very large cage which is much more appropriate in size for a bird like her. She's loving and loves to cuddle and be around her people. She does tend to call out when she gets lonely, and they're working on redirecting this behavior to a more constructive one, such as playing with toys and other fun ways for her to occupy her mind when she's alone. Tootsie knows a few words such as hello and I love you, but is still too shy to speak in front of people but will chatter on and on when she's alone or in the company of other parrots. Tootsie is a fast learner and just wants to be in a forever home that will love her and care for her the way she deserves to be.

Labradors & Friends Dog Rescue would like to emphasize the benefits of adopting a senior. But if outright adoption isn't an option, then fostering, under the Agnes Fund program is also available. The Agnes Fund is basically a Hospice program where they take in seniors, put them in to caring foster homes, but L&F provides all food, bedding, medical and any other support for the life of the dog.
