Austie Click on Austie's picture to see her video on San Diego 6-CW Animal House (and Austie was previously featured on KUSI!)

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

Austie is an 8 year old Maltese mix. Austie was surrendered to Maltese & More Rescue when his owner passed away. He is microchipped, neutered, and up to date on his shots. He's had a recent dental and weighs about 9 lbs. Austie loves to go on walks and has the energy to keep up, but does not require long walks every day. He's happy to snuggle up and relax around the house. He is house trained and is fine to be left at home without getting into anything, as he is past his puppy days. Austie's right eye never fully developed, but this doesn't prevent him from seeing or hold him back. He gets along with other dogs and loves children, but he would also be happy in a home without either. Austie cannot wait to find his forever home!

ElmerClick on Elmer's picture to see his video on KUSI Good Morning San Diego (and Elmer was previously featured on San Diego 6-CW Animal House)!

Name: Elmer
Breed: Terripoo
Age: 3 years old
Sex: Neutered Male
Organization: Maltese & More Rescue
Phone: (858)349-5918
Website: http://www.adoptapet.com/maltese-more-rescue/

Elmer was transferred to Maltese and More Rescue at the request of a local shelter. At the time, he was a terribly neglected stray in horrific medial condition. Elmer had eye and ear infections and was in desperate need of a dental. His skin was so infected that the smell was overwhelming and his back legs were actually matted together. As a result, one leg was damaged so badly that it had to be amputated. I'm happy to say Elmer is in a loving foster home now where he has flourished over the past 3 months. He's become a happy, healthy and fun little guy who is a joy to have around. He loves playing with the other dogs in the home, and losing a leg has not slowed him down one bit. He actually leads the pack in a game of chase. He's housetrained and knows how to use a doggie door. His foster family includes grandchildren, so we know he's good with kids, but probably due to his past, Elmer is afraid of most men in their 20s and 30s. Elmer likes taking walks, going on car rides, and just hanging out with his family. Please call or google Maltese And More Rescue, and you should get to their site where you can find an adoption application or learn about fostering.

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.

Junebug (chiweenie)Click Junebug's picture to see her video on San Diego 6-CW Animal House (and Junebug was also featured on the Mighty 1090)!

Name: Junebug
Breed: Dachshund/Chihuahua (Chiweenie)
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. You can meet Junebug at the LARGEST ADOPTION EVENT OF THE SEASON! Santa Paws Mega Adoption Event THIS SATURDAY, Dec 3, at Grossmont Center from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. Just look for the No Wagging Tail Left Behind booth, or visit with 20 other rescues and shelters and meet hundreds of dogs and even some cats for adoption!

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

Breed: Doberman/Pit Bull Mix
Age: 7 months old
Sex: Spayed Female
Organization: Pit Bull Rescue San Diego
Phone: (858) 333-6911 x 501
Website: www.pbrsd.org

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. You can read more about Gracie, and submit an adoption application, at PBRSD.org. We also encourage you to come meet Gracie at the Pit Bull Rescue San Diego Adoption Booth at the Santa Paws MEGA Adoption event this Saturday at Grossmont Center in La Mesa from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. You can also learn about volunteer and foster opportunities if you're not quite ready for a lifetime commitment!

Meet Donatella...a sweet, low maintenance easy-going Maltese. She is 7 years young and about 20 lbs. She would be great with any family.

She is potty-trained, eats well with no fuss and has no separation anxiety when we leave her for work with our other dogs. She would do well in a home that isn't super active, as she doesn't have a ton of energy, she loves to sleep! Donatella has a cataract in one eye that makes it hard for her to see during the evenings and in certain lighting but she's still able to see and gets around fine. Donatella is spayed, microchipped and current on her vaccinations. Her adoption fee is $250.

Amos, Scooter and ReeseClick on Amos, Scooter and Reese's picture to see their video on San Diego 6-CW Animal House!

Name: Amos, Scooter, and Reese
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. All these puppies will be at the Santa Paws Mega Adoption Event this Saturday at Grossmont Center from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. During those 4 hours, you'll have a chance to meet hundreds of dogs, and even some cats, from dozens of organizations. If one of these puppies IS what you're looking for, fill out an app at www.SDSR.org and head over to their booth on Saturday.

Santa Paws PupsClick on the picture of these Maltese and More Rescue puppies to see their video on San Diego 6-CW Animal House!

Names:
Baby Ruth, Josie, Diamond and Pumpernickel
Breed: Poodle mixes
Age: 9-weeks-old
Sex: 3 females/1 male
Organization: Maltese And More Rescue
Phone: (858) 278-4049
Website: adoptapet.com/maltese-more-rescue/

These 9-week-old Poodle puppies came into the Maltese And More foster program at the request of our local Bonita shelter. They were too young to survive at the shelter, and the rescue coordinator knew that in a foster home, they would get fattened up, socialized, and remain healthy until they were ready for adoption. There are three females: Baby Ruth, Josie and Diamond, and one boy: Pumpernickel. All these Poo-pups are very playful and well-rounded. They love to play with toys, they enjoy chewing on their bully sticks, and of course, they love to play with each other as much as possible! They're just now getting used to playing with a ball. The puppies are puppy pad trained and working on learning how to go potty outside. Because they're so young, these puppies have no fear whatsoever. They're microchipped, spayed or neutered, and have had their second set of puppy shots....three sets are required. You can meet all four of these babies at the SANTA PAWS Mega Adoption event this Saturday at Grossmont Center in La Mesa, from 11 AM to 3 PM. Just head over to the Maltese And More booth while you're there, or check out all the other dogs and cats who will be available during those 4 short hours!!!

Name: Sparkle
Breed: Maltese/Yorkie (Morkie)

Age: 6.5 years old
Sex: Neutered Male

Organization: Maltese And More Rescue
Phone: (858) 278-4049
Website: AdoptAPet.com/maltese-more-rescue/

Meet Sparkle And Buddy. Both adorable dogs are available for adoption from Maltese And More Rescue. Sparkle, a 12-pound, Morkie was pulled from a local municipal shelter, as she had been hit by a car, was pregnant, and needed help. The night they pulled her from the shelter, she delivered 4 puppies, but only one survived. Sparkle has been in a foster home to heal from her injuries and to take care of her surviving puppy, Ginger, who is also available for adoption. Meanwhile, Buddy is a 5 1/2 pound maltese given up by his owner because he needed dental care, and they were moving. Buddy received the care he needed and is like a new dog. He's happy and healthy, with a bounce in his step. Both dogs are very people-oriented, love to cuddle and travel well in the car. While Sparkle gets along great with other dogs and cats in the home, Buddy prefers to have a family all to himself. Meet Buddy and Sparkle this Saturday, December 3rd, at the largest adoption event of the season....Santa Paws Mega Adoption Event at Grossmont Center from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. Hundreds of dogs and even a few cats for adoption all in one place. Help us make some Christmas miracles come true. Bring your family and friends to this incredible event and help us save lives. Buddy and Sparkle will be waiting for you at the Maltese And More Rescue booth, along with dozens of their friends!

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. And remember Sadie and hundreds of other pets will be at the Santa Paws Mega Adoption Event on December 3rd, if she's not adopted before then.

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


Name: Giovanna
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.

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

Name: Mayka
Breed: Chiweenie
Age: 2 years old
Sex: Spayed Female
Organization: Animal Rescuers Without Borders
Phone: (619) 977-3593
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.

GoldieAs featured on KUSI GOOD MORNING SAN DIEGO!


Name: Goldie
Breed: Terrier
Sex: Spayed Female
Organization: Maltese & More Rescue
Phone: (858) 278-4049
Website: http://www.adoptapet.com/maltese-more-rescue/

This 3 year old girl was so shut down at the shelter. She was curled up in a ball, shaking like crazy. She was so scared, no one was interested in even taking a second look at her. Maltese & More Rescue saw beyond her frightening demeanor and figured she would be a good candidate to join their rescue. Goldie is shy and a total love bug when you earn her trust. In just a few days she is warming up and comes looking for attention which she loves. She uses a piddle pad in the house. Gets along great with the other dogs and even the cats. Contact Maltese & More Rescue, (858) 349-5918, or http://www.adoptapet.com/maltese-more-rescue/.

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

Name: Oso
Breed: Pomeranian
Age: 7-year-old senior
Sex: Neutered Male
Organization: Animal Rescuers Without Borders
Phone: (619) 977-3593
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. His special adoption fee is just $50 this month, and if he's not adopted soon, he'll be up for adoption at the Santa Paws MEGA Adoption Event in December. Please go ARWOB.org for an adoption application and more info about the event.

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


Name: Earth
Breed: Greyhound
Age: 5.5 years old
Sex: Spayed Female
Organization: Greyhound Adoption Center in El Cajon
Phone: (877) 478-8364
Website: HoundSavers.org

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. They're evaluated for temperament and personality, and tested with cats, small dogs, and young children before being profiled for a home.

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

Name: Skippy
Breed: Chihuahua mix
Age: 4 years old
Sex: Neutered Male
Organization: El Cajon Animal Shelter, 1275 N. Marshall Street in El Cajon
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.

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

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

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.

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

Name: Pixie

Age: 10-month-old puppy
Sex: Spayed Female
Organization: Maltese & More Rescue
Phone: (858) 278-4049
Website: www.adoptapet.com/maltese-more-rescue/

Pixie wound up at the Bonita shelter after being found as a stray. She is a very young 10-month-old Yorkie mix that doesn't even weigh 4-pounds yet. She loves to run in the yard with her foster siblings, and bonds very quickly to her caregivers. She flies up on her favorite chair when her foster mom comes home, and just as quickly zooms around the house, landing back in the chair for her share of affection. She's a peppy, happy, bundle of energy who loves playing with her toys! This girl has no fear, and is as friendly as can be. Pixie has the most beautiful eyes that will melt your heart. She's an easy one to groom since her hair is straight, and the perfect size to join you wherever you go. She loves going on car rides and is a real snuggle bug. Pixie is spayed, vaccinated, and microchipped, and that's all included as part of her adoption fee. She's available for adoption from Maltese And More Rescue, and the easiest way to find them on the Internet is to just Google "Maltese And More" or call 858-278-4049. Also, if you aren't ready to adopt a dog, but you'd like to give a Maltese a safe place to stay until a forever home can be found, please contact them about becoming a foster family!

So if you already have a dog, bring your pooch to the shelter to meet Beau so that we know everyone will be happy together before he goes home with you You can spend some time in the play yard to get acquainted.

November is National ADOPT A SENIOR DOG Month. Did you know you can prevent mammary, prostate and testicular cancers by simply spaying/neutering your pets. 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.

Buddy is a goofy boy with big floppy ears, a low rider shuffle, and a personality that will make you giggle for hours. 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.

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

Name: Scottsdale
Breed: Chihuahua/Terrier
Age: 4 months old
Sex: Neutered Male
Organization: Animal Rescuers Without Borders
Phone: (619) 977-3593
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.

Amadeus As featured on San Diego 6-CW Animal House!

Name: Amadeus
Breed: Rhodesian Ridgeback/Pitbull Mix
Age: 2 years old
Sex: Neutered Male
Organization: Ridgebacks and Friends Rescue
Phone: (818) 406-4877
Website: www.ridgebacksandfriends.org

Amadeus is a very sweet, somewhat nervous Rhodesian Ridgeback mix, who needs calm and consistent love to bring out his confident side. 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.

Breed: Pomeranian/Spitz
Age: 9-years-old
Sex; Neutered Male
Organization: Animal Rescuers Without Borders
Web: 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.

Sex: Spayed Female

She's so sweet, they named her Honey! This fun, affectionate Hound mix came to The Rescued Dog via the Humane Society of Imperial County. She's only 8-months-old and weighs 35-pounds, and may grow a little more before she reaches her full size. Honey is extremely social with other dogs. She loves going to the dog park for a good romp. She also loves going out for walks so she can see her canine buddies. When she sees other dogs out on walks she pulls to greet them so she will need a little help with that. Honey is smart and responsive, so training her should be fun and rewarding for her new family. She already knows "sit", "come", and "to your bed", and she'd love to learn more. Honey is also a huge fan of people. At home, she wants to be where her family is, snuggling and giving them kisses. She's also very social with new people she meets. Honey is crate trained and almost house-trained. If you're looking for a fun, sweet, sporty girl to round out your pack, fill out an application at TheRescuedDog.org.

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

Izzy is a 3-pound, 5 month old Pomeranian puppy who wound up at a local shelter with a heart condition called a PDA. She required immediate surgery to correct the issue, and Maltese And More stepped up to the plate to save her. They raised funds, applied for grants, and finally had the money to provide Izzy with the surgery she needed. Izzy came out of it with flying colors, and has recovered so well that her heart specialist has cleared her for adoption! This sweet girl loves to cuddle and be held. She has the nicest personality and gets along great with other dogs and cats. Because she's just a puppy, she's very playful and loves to play with her toys. She's learning to walk on a leash by accompanying her foster mom as she picks up the grand kids from school. She's been socialized around children, she's housetrained, fully vaccinated, and microchipped. Don't let her previous condition scare you away from adopting Izzy...she requires no follow-up visits, no ongoing medications, nor does she need to limit her activity. Izzy is healthy now and expected to live a nice, long life. Call (858) 349-5918 or Google "Maltese And More Rescue" to get to their website and fill out an application.

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.

Thor the Cat Click on Thor's picture to see his video on San Diego 6-CW Animal House!

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

Age: 10 years old
Sex: Spayed female
Organization: Maltese & More Rescue
Phone: (858)349-5918
Website: http://www.adoptapet.com/maltese-more-rescue/

This is Sunkist, a 10-year-old Poodle brought to a shelter by her owners who asked that she be euthanized because she was bleeding. Turns out she had a bladder stone the size of a golf ball causing the bleeding and an excruciating amount of pain. So the shelter provided the surgery to remove the stone, and she was able to recover very nicely in a loving foster home. Being 10 years of age doesn't stop Sunkist from enjoying her daily walks and playing with her foster siblings. Remember that as a general rule, smaller dogs live much longer than large breeds, so Sunkist still has a good life ahead of her. She's gentle, quiet and a pleasure to have around the house. She's a great companion, and would love to snuggle up and hang out with a family of her own. She's very easy going, getting along well with dogs and cats. Sunkist is not a barker, other than to let you know when someone is at the door. She follows her foster mom from room to room as though they're best of buddies. She's a good girl in the car, and she's housetrained. She'd be great with an older couple, and if you're a senior citizen, you'll want to ask Maltese And More about the "Senior to Senior" program. Of course, she's microchipped, spayed, vaccinated, and she had a through dental cleaning. Google Maltese And More for more information.

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.

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.

He's in a foster home, so fortunately, they've gotten to know him well, and his foster family says he has the best manners ever! Toby is a favorite at Maltese & More. He's completely house-trained, he knows how to sit on command, and he loves to go for rides in the car. Toby plays nicely with his foster siblings, and he's even good with cats. Toby likes to go for walks and does nicely on a leash. This young guy is quiet, with a laid-back, happy go lucky attitude, and he'd do well in a house with children who are at least 5 years of age. Like all adoptable dogs from Maltese And More Rescue, Toby has been checked by a veterinarian, he's ully vaccinated, neutered and microchipped. He's ready to go when you are. There are a couple of Maltese rescues in San Diego, but if you google the words Maltese And More, I find that's the easiest route to their website where you can fill out an adoption application, or learn more about fostering another little dog like Toby until a forever home can be found.

Breed: Cairn Terrier
Age: 6-years-old
Sex: Spayed Female
Organization: Scratch My Belly
Phone: (858) 344-2423
Website: www.scratchmybelly.org

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. If any money is left over, it will be used to save the next dog in need.

Phone: (619) 356-3390

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!

Addie is an 8-year-old Maltese weighing 7-pounds, full grown.

Website:
www.scratchmybelly.org

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!

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

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!

This 14-week-old Dachshund mix puppy is named Chance. He's an adorable little guy who weighs just over 5-pounds, but is still growing.. He's long and low like a Dachshund, but has soft fluffy hair, with uniquely furry ears. We're not exactly sure what Chance is mixed with, but it certainly is adorable. This sweet boy loves all people, and adores playing with the other dogs in his foster home. He's also sweet enough to be placed in a home with nice cats. He's a quick learner; he learned to sit and lay down in one day, and he's working hard on his house training, with the guidance of his foster family. Chance is neutered, has had his puppy shots, is microchipped and vet-checked. He's all ready to go to his forever home. If you google Maltese And More Rescue, you'll be able to find their website easily. Just click on Chance's picture and fill out an adoption application.

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

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.

Webpage: http://waggingdog.org/pet/briggs/

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!

Organization: Greyhound Adoption Center
Phone: (877) 478-8364 or (877) HoundSavers
Website: HoundSavers.org

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. You can meet Witchy and all the dogs on Sunday at the Center's Open House, and tour of their facility from 1-to-3 PM at 4821 Dehesa Road, in El Cajon. Visit with volunteers and learn more about greyhound rescue, rehab, adoption, and volunteer opportunities.

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.

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.

Sex: Neutered Male
Organization: Maltese & More Rescue
Phone: (858) 349-5918
Website: http://www.adoptapet.com/maltese-more-rescue/

Domino is a 7 to 8 year old male Pomeranian who was recently pulled out of the one of our local County municipal animal shelters, and placed into a Maltese & More Rescue foster home. Dogs who are this age tend to get overlooked at the shelter, but it's important to remember that small dogs tend to live longer than their larger counterparts, so Domino is really only middle-aged. This little guy weighs just 4 1/2 pounds. He's friendly, happy and quiet, and just likes to hang out with his people. Domino loves going for car rides with his foster mom and gets along great with other dogs as well as cats. He'd make a perfect companion for a senior citizen, and Maltese And More has a "Senior to Senior" program with a reduced adoption fee of $250, which they will use to help offset their vet expenses for Domino, and hopefully have some left over to help the next dog in need. Domino has been neutered, microchipped, vaccinated, vet checked, and is ready to go when you are. If you're interested in adopting Domino, just google Maltese And More Rescue, and you should be guided to their website. Like all reputable agencies, they require an application and home-check before finalizing the adoption.

Jacob came into our rescue through the San Diego Department of Animal Services, Gaines shelter. He was very scared, lonely and confused, which led him to curl up and withdraw in the shelter. Since being in foster care, we have learned that Jacob is extremely friendly, happy and playful. He gets along great with his foster siblings and is just as sweet as can be to his foster mom. With Jacob's size and temperament, he would be an awesome family pet with children. Jacob weighs 14 lbs, is neutered, microchipped, vaccinated and ready for his adoptive family.

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.

Austin is an adorable older Maltese mix who acts like a puppy. It's important to remember that even though Austin is 9-years-old, this little breed is expected to live for 15 years, so he's really only middle-aged. He's up for adoption because his previous owner passed away, and Maltese And More came to his rescue. Austin has beautiful white hair, that's cut short for now during the summer months, but it will grow long during the winter months if you'd like. He's the perfect size at about 9-pounds full-grown. He loves to go for walks and is great on a leash. He gets along great with other dogs, big and small, and loves to play with them. He's housetrained and behaves himself in the house when left alone. Austin is good with children and would love to have a family of his own to love and protect. His adoption fee not only includes his vaccinationos, microchip and neuter, but the rescue organization already put out the money to have a full dental cleaning done, which will save the future owner lots of money.

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.

Chloe came to Maltese and More Rescue from the Central County Animal Shelter on Gaines Street, where she was treated for the deadly Parvo virus, which happens far too often in puppies who haven't been properly vaccinated. Luckily, she recovered beautifully in a foster home, where she received the love and care she needed. She has no lingering problems and is just a darling, quiet little girl. Chloe likes going on walks with her foster mom and she's learning to walk well on a leash. She's using a pee-pad while she continues to work on her house training, which is coming along very well, but remember, she's just a 5-month-old puppy, so she's going to need someone who has the time to work with her and train her properly. Chloe is a shy, and sweet companion who gets along well with other dogs and cats. She's a healthy, happy Maltipoo, which is a so called designer dog, created by mixing the adorable maltese breed with the low-shedding poodle breed. Her adoption fee covers her spay, vaccinations, and microchip. Since rescue organizations don't receive tax dollars, they use the adoption fees to cover their expenses so they can continue to rescue more dos in the future.

Sex: Spayed Female
Organization: Paws of Coronado

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.

Ginger
Breed: Boston Beagle
Age: 1 year old
Sex: Spayed Female
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

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.

Jasper
Breed: Schnauzer
Age: 3 years old
Sex: Neutered Male
Organization: TheRescuedDog.org
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.

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!

Organization: Maltese & More Rescue
Phone: (858) 349-5918
Website: http://www.adoptapet.com/maltese-more-rescue/

Petey is a 5 year old poodle/jack Russell mix weighing 13 lbs. Petey came into Maltese & More Rescue from our local shelter as he was one of 2 dogs abandoned in a crate and left in an alley in Ocean Beach during a heat spell we had in June. Petey is very playful, making him an awesome family dog. He gets along great with other dogs, people and loves children. We're not sure if he likes cats or not. He walks well on a leash, loves to play with toys and enjoys belly rubs. Petey is very healthy now that he has been in our care. He has been neutered, vaccinated and microchipped, making him ready for his forever home. M&M is NOT a shelter and doesn't receive government funds or tax dollars, therefore there is an adoption fee to help them pay for their medical expenses, and your donation is used to save the next dog!

Sex: Spayed Female
Organization: Greyhound Adoption Center, 4821 Dehesa Rd in El Cajon
Phone: (877) HoundSavers or (877) 478-8364
Web: 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.

Breed: Shih Tzu
Age: 10 years & 12 years

Organization: Lionel's Legacy
Phone: 619-212-5623
Website: LionelsLegacy.org

Lilo and Stitch are an inseparable bonded pair of senior Shih Tzus who are available for adoption from Lionel's Legacy Senior Dog Rescue. Lilo is about 10 years of age, and she's confident, outgoing and playful. Her lifelong companion, Stitch, is believed to be about 11 years old and is Mr. Mellow, very cuddly and always wanting to please. These two are both very social, very quiet, good with all pets and people, and well-trained. They even sleep quietly together in a crate. Together they are easy-peasy and very low-maintenance, which is, of course, one of the greatest benefits to adopting a senior pet. They will both require periodic grooming and would do best on a good quality diet to keep them in tip-top condition. Lilo and Stitch are spayed and neutered, fully vaccinated, microchipped, and their blood work shows that they are both healthy and ready to find their forever home together. Even if you don't think you can permanently adopt these two, Lionel's Legacy would appreciate a temporary foster family to step up and love them until a forever home can be found. All supplies and medical care are covered. Please call or go to LionelsLegacy.org for more information.

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.

Both are in good health and recently had dentals. They don't have many teeth left between the 2 of them but that doesn't get in their way.

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.


OscarDarn! Oscar didn't make his TV Debut on San Diego 6-CW Animal House today because the stress of the TV Studio proved to be just too much for him! Please check him out on his webpage!

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

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.

Sid is a 10-year-old Chihuahua mix. They only say he's a mix because they're convinced he's part bunny with his extremely soft fur. Sid likes to burrow under blankets, and will fall asleep just about anywhere you want him to. He's completely house broken and will let you know when he needs to go outside. His compact size makes him perfect for apartment living. He's well-socialized and does great with cats and dogs alike, and older children. He's low energy but does like an occasional romp in the yard. Sid has had a full dental and is up to date on all of his shots. Although Sid is 10, small dogs live much longer than large dogs, so he still has many happy years ahead of him! Lionel's Legacy specializes in rescuing senior dogs....the hardest dogs to save. So if you appreciate the service they provide to our community, please come support them.

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.senarrescue.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.

Website:LionelsLegacy.org

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!

Noel is an adorable senior dog available for adoption from Lionel's Legacy Senior Dog Rescue. Your guess is as good as ours when it comes to figuring out what breed she is. All we can guarantee is that she's truly unique, and one of a kind. She enjoys being a lap-dog and will be the perfect companion for someone looking for a mellow, easy-going dog. This sweet dog was left behind in a box outside of a local shelter. Since older dogs have such a tough time at shelters, and rarely get adopted, Lionel's Legacy stepped up and put her into one of their foster homes. Noel currently lives with other dogs, but she'd be just as happy being your only squeeze. Noel is spayed, vaccinated, and she had a dental cleaning, which left her with a tongue that always hangs out. If you're interested in adopting Noel or becoming a foster family for a senior dog in need, please call or go to LionelsLegacy.org.

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!

Chantilly

Organization: San Diego Turtle & Tortoise Society
Phone: (619) 593-2123
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.

Even at the age of six, Nature is happy, exuberant, and playful and will make a wonderful companion for an active family with children of all ages. Like all the dogs from the Center she's had a complete medical evaluation, she's altered, vaccinated, microchipped, and had a thorough dental cleaning. All the dogs are fully evaluated for temperament and personality, and tested with cats, small dogs, and young children before being profiled for a home.

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.

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. Of course, he's had a vet checkup, he's up to date on vaccinations and microchipped. If you'd like to meet Domino, fill out an application at ARWOB.org, and they'll set up a meet and greet with you near his Mission Valley foster home, if that's convenient for you.

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. She is great on the leash, potty-trained, and all around wonderful. She would do fine in a household with other dogs, and would do equally well as an only dog. To sum up, she is a perfect family dog! 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.

Name:
Scout
Breed: Domestic medium-hair, solid black cat
Age: 5 years old
Sex: Neutered Male
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.

Age:
3 months old
Sex: Spayed female
Organization: The Rescue House

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.

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'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. Of course, he's had a vet checkup, he's up to date on vaccinations and microchipped.

Age: 3 month old kittens
Sex: Neutered Males
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.

Phone: (877) HoundSavers or (877) 478-8364
Web: 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.

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!!

Milo
Breed: Mini Lop Rabbit
Age: 8-month-old
Sex: Neutered Male
Weight: 4.5 pounds
Organization: San Diego House Rabbit Society, 4807 Mercury St. Kearny Mesa
Phone: (858) 565-2869
Web: SanDiegoRabbits.org

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.

Age: 1.5 years old
Sex: Neutered Male
Organization: Greyhound Adoption Center, 4821 Dehesa Road in El Cajon
Phone: (877) HoundSavers or (877) 478-8364
Website: HoundSavers.org

Bowie is an ex-racing greyhound residing at the Greyhound Adoption Center, and he's already retired at just 1.5 years of age. He arrived in January with a horrific injury to his right rear foot - the bones were literally snapped in two. 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.

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.

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).

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.

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!

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.

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!

Stiltz gets along well with the other friendly dogs in her play group at the animal shelter, and she adores getting attention and affection. Due to recent changes in Camp Pendleton's base access procedures, there's been a SIGNIFICANT drop in the number of people coming to adopt cats and dogs. The public CAN still adopt from the base shelter...it's just a bit more complicated to get a base pass. To all retired military, or active duty military who have ID cards and can easily go out to the shelter: if you've been thinking about adopting, please come to Building 25132 to see if there's a dog or cat for your family.

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.

He loves to play Tug-o-war and he almost always wins! He loves to run and play with other dogs, he's very fast and surprisingly strong for such a little dude.

He hardly sheds, has a great appetite, and is very treat motivated! Taz is already neutered, vaccinated, microchipped and ready to go to a good home. He just needs a family who can play with him, and take him for walks, to the beach, or to the off-leash dog park where he can socialize with other pups. Of course, we also want a family who will just love and spoil him!

Rudy is a 3-year-old, 50-pound sweetheart, listed at the shelter as a Terrier-Basset Hound mix...probably because of his adorable stumpy legs, and the coloring of a Staffordshire Terrier. Rudy is a pretty solid boy and an all-around great guy. He listens well, is good in the car, likes everyone he's ever met, and has a good medium energy level. He's not reactive to dogs on walks or through fences...in fact, he rarely even barks! Rudy loves playing with toys and will entertain himself. He's equally happy going for a long jog, or snuggling in front of the TV. We could really go on and on about how great he is because he's in a foster home, and the fosters really get to know the dogs while they're in their homes.

Timmy is a 2-year-old, neutered male Poodle mix...maybe mixed with a little scruffy terrier...and he weighs in at 16-pounds, full-grown. He's microchipped and all his vaccinations are up to date. Timmy may be pint sized but he has a HUGE personality. He's very sweet, agile, and extremely smart. Timmy gets along well with other dogs, he's crate trained, housebroken and even knows how to use a doggy door. Timmy is in a foster home, and he's proven himself to be a great indoor house dog! He's extremely well behaved, rarely barks, and doesn't shed. Timmy is also very versatile...he loves to take walks, or just lay on the couch next to his human companion. At night, he sleeps on his doggie bed right next to his foster mom's bed, and he loves treats! If you're interested in meeting Timmy, you can call or go to www.senarescue.org to fill out an adoption application. And if you're not quite ready to make that commitment, consider filling out an application to become a temporary foster home or a volunteer.

Rose
Breed: Spaniel / Dachshund mix
Age: 3 years old
Sex: Spayed Female
Organization: Wagging Dog Rescue
Phone: 310-853-0757
Website: WaggingDog.org

Rose is a shiny black, 3-year-old Spaniel/Dachshund mix who was so skinny when she first came into the Wagging Dog Rescue's foster program. But with her healthy appetite, she's put on weight, and is looking beautiful and healthy with her soft, shiny coat. Rose is a very affectionate girl who loves to be touched and will follow her person around. She has excellent indoor manners, walks well on a leash, and loves to ride in the car and play in the yard. Rose is the type of dog who would be perfectly happy being an only pet and the apple of her family's eye, but she could also live well with a male dog companion close to her own size. She is not, however, a big fan of cats, and because she was not treated very well by children before, we'd like to see her go into an adult only home. If you're interested in adopting Rose, or finding out how you can become a foster family or volunteer, please head to WaggingDog.org or e-mail adoptions@WaggingDog.org!

Fluffy was turned over to Chihuahua Rescue by a young adopter who has had Fluffy for the past 7 years, and is now too busy to take care of her. Fluffy's foster dad says she is the best dog he has ever had the pleasure of fostering. She's very responsive to commands, loves to walk and gets along with most anyone. She even likes to be brushed and groomed, which is important for a long hair Chihuahua. Her teeth have now been professionally cleaned, she's had her shots, and is ready for a new home where she will be part of a forever family who will love her, and never abandon her.

Organization: Operation Greyhound
Phone: (619) 588-6611
Website: operationgreyhound.com

Gina is a healthy, happy, very friendly Greyhound who ran 10 races before they realized she had no interest in chasing a mechanical rabbit. Obviously she'd rather race to the couch! She's 66-pounds, loves playing with other greyhounds and toys, but hasn't been tested yet with cats. As a general rule, Greyhounds should never be off leash unless they're in a totally fenced in area. Gina's $225 adoption fee includes her medical records, spay, dental cleaning, vaccinations, collar and leash. Operation Greyhound requires an application and home check before adoption. You can call (619) 588-6611 to make an appointment to meet their dogs between the hours of 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. any day of the week.

Website: RescueAChihuahua.com



Sophia was pulled out of a high-kill shelter. She had a broken leg, and was turned in to be euthanized as her previous owners didn't want to spend the money to take care of her vet costs. Fortunately, Chihuahua Rescue of San Diego got her from the shelter and took her into a San Diego Animal Clinic to perform the surgery. It's been 4 months since her surgery, and she's healed so nicely that you wouldn't even know she had anything done. Sophia sleeps in her crate at night, loves her walks and is doing very well when she's left home alone. She does like other dogs but human attention is really her favorite thing. She doesn't mind having her beautiful coat brushed, and of course she's now spayed and has all her shots up to date. If you'd like to meet Sophia, please fill out an adoption application at RescueAChihuahua.com.

Phone: (619) 588-6611

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.

Age: 5 yrs old

Organization: PBRSD
Phone: (858) 736-1727
Website: www.pbrsd.org

Maddie is a 5 year old adorable, squishy pit bull mix, who's only about 55 pounds. She loves people and will cuddle as much as she can. She's a smart girl who learned her new name in two days. 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.

Age: Approx 3 - 4 years
Sex: Spayed Female
Organization: Greyhound Adoption Center
Phone: (877) HoundSavers or (877) 478-8364
Website: www.houndsavers.org

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.

Breed: Chihuahua
Age: 10-years-old
Sex: Neutered Male
Weight: 7-pounds

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.

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!

Organization: Wagging Dog Rescue

Website: WaggingDog.org

This handsome little guy with the expressive ears is Twinkie, and it's hard to believe he was found on the streets and then spent months cowering in the darkest corner of his shelter kennel. He wouldn't even let the volunteers come near him. He's now in a foster home with Wagging Dog Rescue. He's still shy but has shown his loving, playful side to those he trusts. Twinkie is 3 years old, and less than 10-pounds. He's a fan of belly rubs and scratches so you can tickle your way into his heart pretty quickly. He'd be perfectly happy as a lap dog, although he does love playing and running around with other dogs... possibly even a cat. Twinkie walks well on a leash, and likes car rides. He's crate trained and not a barker. If you think you're the right match for Twinkie, please go to WaggingDog.org for an application today!

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 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.

Phone:

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.
