FlintClick on Flint's picture to see his video on KUSI GOOD MORNING SAN DIEGO (and Flint was also featured on the Mighty 1090)!

Name: Flint
Age: 4 Years old
Sex: Neutered Male
Organization: Friends of SNAP
Phone: (760) 815-0945 or SNAP hotline (619) 525-3047
Website: snap-SanDiego.org (click on Friends of SNAP)

Flint is a very unique little guy! Besides people stopping to say "how adorable" or "what the heck is that?" you'll find Flint a perfect companion. He likes to snuggle and also likes to walk , travel, and do beach time! He is great with dogs, would be fine with a cat that has dog experience (he'll chase if the kitty runs). One thing to know about Flint is that he comes with the convenience of a chihuahua size, but also comes with the extra work of a Chinese Crested...which means maintaining hair and SKIN. This breed needs special skin care. If you have experience with breeds with special skin and want a small buddy your able to take everywhere...since he's under 10 lbs, Flint's your guy!

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

Name:
Remy
Breed: Beagle/Dachshund
Age: 6 month old puppy
Gender: Female
Organization: Maltese & More Rescue
Phone: (858) 349-5918
Website: http://www.adoptapet.com/maltese-more-rescue/

Meet Remy, this super sweet young girl is about 5 months old and weights 10 lbs. We think she is part Beagle and part Dachshund. She looks like a tiny Labrador Retriever and will most likely weigh about 15-20 lbs. when full grown. Whatever she is mixed with is adorable and her coat is soft and silky, and low maintenance. She is gentle and loving but she is a little shy and would do best with someone that could spend time building her confidence. Like all puppies, she will need to continue the training she has begun in foster care. She seems really smart and is learning her house manners quickly and loves to please. She has spent most of her young life in a wonderful foster home being loved and socialized, so she has had a nurturing, and stable 'puppyhood'. Puppies require supervision and attention, so we hope to find her a home where she will not be alone all day. She does great with her foster family's dogs and cats and we think she would do well with kids also.

BullClick Bull's picture to see his video on KUSI GOOD MORNING SAN DIEGO

Name: Bull
Breed: English Spot
Age: 6 months old
Sex: Female (yes, Bull is a girl)
Organization: San Diego House Rabbit Society
Phone: (858) 565-2869
Website: www.sandiegorabbits.org

Bull the Bunny is a very sweet girl who loves hanging out with people and getting lots of pets! She would do well with a family with older children (8 yrs and older). Bull would love to find her forever home and family soon. Ideally, she would enjoy having an x-pen set up in the living room with free run while you are home. Will you open your heart and home for Bull? With Easter upon us, it's time for our usual schpeel: Don't buy a bunny for Easter! Learn first what is entailed by coming to a Bunny 101 class given every Saturday morning. Then, if a bunny is right for you and your family, adopt. Otherwise, give a chocolate bunny or stuffed animal for Easter!

HarryClick on Harry's picture to see his video on KUSI GOOD MORNING SAN DIEGO (and CLICK HERE to see Harry's TV debut on San Diego 6-CW Animal House)

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

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

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

Name: Mango
Breed:
Shepherd mix
Age:
18 weeks
Sex:
Spayed Female
Organization:
The Rescued Dog
Phone:
(619) 356-3390
Website:
TheRescuedDog.org

Mango and her adorable siblings, Buttercup and Darby, were at the Humane Society of Imperial County before being placed into a local home with The Rescued Dog. These adorable puppies are 4-month old shepherd-mountain dog mixes and they're 20-pounds and growing! No telling just how big they'll get, but they will be big! It's possible they could be in the 65-to-80 pound range as adults. Mango can be shy when meeting new people and dogs, but she and her foster mom have been working with a trainer to overcome her fearful nature. Mango's adoption will include a complimentary training session from a trainer to help Mango get on the right paw with her new family. Mango's foster mom says that Mango likes to be in the same room as her humans, but she does settle down quickly in her crate. Mango has a fun, playful side, loves to play with her toys, and is responding well to house training. Mango is the most affectionate of her siblings, and her forever family should be ready to be showered with love from this sweet girl. If you'd like to meet Mango, please fill out an adoption application at TheRescuedDog.org and an adoption coordinator will be in touch to schedule a meet and greet.

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

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

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

BonnieClick on Bonnie's picture to see her video on KUSI Good Morning San DIego!

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

Bonnie has been at Friends of Cats for about 6 months. Her prior owners unfortunately developed an allergy toward her and couldn't keep her. Bonnie went through many emotional changes when she first arrived at Friends of Cats, but with lots of care and love she is now extremely affectionate and has become a staff favorite! Fun Fact: Bonnie is such a favorite at Friends of Cats that you can always find her strolling around the office, or curled up on a staff members' desk. The adoption fee for Bonnie is $75. Bonnie has tested negative for diseases, is current on vaccines, microchipped, and neutered. All adoptions at Friends of Cats come with a free veterinary visit within 10 days of adoption. Friends of Cats is a no-kill shelter for cats located in El Cajon dedicated to providing shelter and medical care to abandoned cats and those whose owners are unable to care for them. The Shelter houses over 270 cats at any given time. About half of the cats at the shelter are adoptable and are looking to find their new home. Friends of Cats is also a sanctuary for cats that are terminally ill, considered unadoptable, or whose owners have arranged for their continued lifetime care. Friends of Cats is located at 15587 Olde Highway 80 in El Cajon, just east of Lake Jennings Park Road and is open Tuesday through Sunday from 10:00am-3:30pm for adoptions.

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Delhi
Breed: Greyhound
Age: 2.5 years old
Sex: Spayed Female
Organization: Greyound Adoption Center, 4821 Dehesa Rd, El Cajon
Phone: (877) 478-8364
Website: HoundSavers.org

Delhi is a 2.5 year old ex-racing Greyhound who is available for adoption at the Greyhound Adoption Center, where she recently arrived from the Caliente Racetrack with seven other Greyhounds. Delhi is a happy, playful girl who will make an excellent addition to a busy, active family. She's been approved to go to a home with children of all ages, but not cats.

They also have a medical evaluation, they're spayed or neutered, vaccinated, microchipped and have their teeth cleaned.

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Phone: (949) 244-1000

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

Joanne is a petite English Spot mix. She's just 6-months old and a big cuddle bug who is hoping to find a forever home with a family who will treat her like the little princess that she is. Joanne is very friendly, sweet, active and curious. She loves exploring and investigating new places and smells. She'd do great in a home with adults or one with calm, gentle kids. Ideally we'd love to find her a home where she could hang out in her X-pen in the family room and also have lots of time to run around while the family is home.

Cookie is quiet, loving and very well behaved. She is about 7 lbs. It isn't known how she was injured, which resulted in leg paralysis. Cookie was dumped at a shelter by her owners who no longer wanted to care for her disability. Open Arms found out later that it was an old spinal disc extrusion. Surgery was done on her, but it did not make a difference as the issue had been allowed to progress for so long. This doesn't slow her down one bit. Cookie would be good with kids or family as long as the kids are over eight years old. She has a little pink cart that she speeds around in. She's currently being fostered along with another little rescued paraplegic doggy named Romeo who is a 2 yr old Chihuahua. Cookie is spayed, microchipped and fully vaccinated. If you'd like to find out more please contact www.openarmsrescue.org or call (760) 470-7643.

Website: NWTLB.org

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


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

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

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

Bonnie is a gentle girl that wound up in a high kill shelter VERY pregnant. Three days after Chihuahua Rescue pulled her from the shelter, she gave birth to six puppies.

Bonnie has the spotted feet of a cattle dog or miniature Aussie, the longer hair of a Spaniel, and the personality of a Golden or Labrador Retriever. She loves being with humans as much as possible, and knows what a doggie door is, but still needs a bit of guidance getting outside. Her foster family believes she was was locked outside all the time, and now she's afraid that she won't be allowed back in where she can be with the family. This pretty little girl is only 17-pounds, so she's the perfect size for any living situation; condo, apartment or house…plus she travels well and would love to join you on your outings. She's learning how to walk on a leash and harness, and she's clearly enjoying life as a beloved companion. If you'd like to make Bonnie part of your life, please contact Chihuahua Rescue of San Diego at RescueAChihuahua.com, where you fill out an adoption application, or learn more about their foster program.

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

Website: HollysGarden.com

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

Organization: SENA Animal Rescue
Phone: (858) 408-5658
Website: www.senarescue.org

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

Website: PassionForPitties.com

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

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.

Website: LionelsLegacy.org

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!

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.

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

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

Meet Cheddar, he's 9-pounds and 10 months old! He came into the shelter with a bad case scabies, the worst kind of mange. Dogs Fur Days treated him for the condition, and now he's all cleared up, and his coat is coming in more beautiful than ever! He still has another two weeks of medicine, which will be provided to the adopter, and then he is done with his treatment and should have no lasting effects. Cheddar is a silly, playful, friendly pup who would make a fantastic addition to any family. He adores all people, and other dogs. He has loads of energy and is a bit mouthy, normal for his age, but that could be a problem if you have toddlers. He loves squeaky toys and will keep you laughing with his goofy antics. He's housebroken, microchipped, neutered, vaccinated, and dewormed. His adoption fee includes a collar, leash, and harness!

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

Breed: American Pit Bull/ Staffordshire Terrier blend
Age: 2 years young
Sex: Spayed

Phone: (619) 884-4008

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.

Website: HoundSavers.org

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

Since they are still puppies they need someone around to train, care for and keep occupied as being away all day makes for a naughty untrained pup.

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.

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!

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

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

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

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.

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.

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!

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.

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.

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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!

They're super sweet and affectionate. Both are active and funny, they love playing with their toys, and racing around their pen. As an added plus, they know how to use a litter box. This weekend the San Diego House Rabbit Society is participating in the National "Clear The Shelters Campaign" making it an excellent time to adopt Olive and Zoey, or any of the other adoptable rabbits.

Chantilly

Age: 15 years old
Sex: Female
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.

Nature cannot live in a home with cats but would be happy living with a canine companion over 20 pounds. 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.

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.

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.

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.

Chester has a warm personality, and solicits attention by nuzzling his face into your hand, but he's always quiet and respectful. He's still playful, but no longer a pup, so he won't knock you over with uncontrollable excitement. He's gotten along FABULOUSLY with the dogs he's met at the shelter and adoption events. Plus he's a good little traveler in the car. His adoption fee of $69 includes vaccinations, license, and microchip, and all dogs are temperament tested before adoption to ensure a good match. The south shelter is located on Sweetwater Road in Bonita, and they don't see as much foot traffic as a lot of the other shelters, so please make them one of your first stops when searching for your new best friend!

He's done well with other dogs at the shelter and adoption events, making him an ideal Pit Bull Ambassador, He's also good in the car! Milo has been available for adoption at the Department of Animal Control's south shelter, in Bonita, for MONTHS! But there are just so many wonderful dogs there, that he has a lot of competition. Milo's adoption fee of $69 includes vaccinations, license, and microchip.

Organization: The Rescue House

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.

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.

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. If you're in the military and have deployment or relocation concerns, temporary fostering may be the perfect solution for your family, and a great way to save a life.

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

Website: www.pbrsd.org

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

Name: Chewbacca (aka Chewie)
Breed: Shepherd, Lab, Pit (Shepitador)
Age: 2-years- old
Sex: Neutered male
Organization: Wagging Dog Rescue
Phone: (310) 853-0757
Website: WaggingDog.org

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

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

Milo
Breed: Mini Lop Rabbit
Age: 8-month-old

Weight: 4.5 pounds
Organization: San Diego House Rabbit Society, 4807 Mercury St. Kearny Mesa
Phone: (858) 565-2869
Website: 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.

Bowie
Breed: Greyhound
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.

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

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

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.

Website: DogsFurDays.org

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

Dahlia is an active, playful, spayed 3-year-old Pit Bull Terrier. She's full-grown at 75-pounds. She was originally brought in to the shelter as a stray in January. Dahlia is the type of dog who'd love to spend time playing fetch or joining you on a long walk before settling down at home for the night. Because of her size and playful energy level, she'd do best in a home with kids who are at least 10 years of age. Dahlia gets along with most dogs, but she's not recommend for a home with cats. She's treat motivated and loves a good back scratch.

Phone: (858) 344-2423
Website www.scratchmybelly.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.

Niko enjoys the love and attention he receives in his foster home and enjoys hanging out with people. While he gets along well with the resident dog, he doesn't seem to care much about other dogs. He plays a bit too rough to be a frequent visitor to dog parks. Niko knows his basic commands and he's pretty good on the leash. He enjoys going for runs and hiking. He'll sleep in his crate at night, behaves when left at home alone, knows how to use a doggy door, and he's treat motivated which helps with training.

Ari would do best in a family with bigger kids, 12+, just because she can play pretty hard. She gets along with most dogs, but she's not recommended for a home with cats.

Sex: Neutered Male
Organization: San Diego Companion Rabbit Society, 4807 Mercury St. in Kearny Mesa
Phone: (858) 565-2869
Website: SanDiegoRabbits.org

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

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

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

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

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

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

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.

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

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.

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. Here is a YouTube video of Devo and his rescue: https://youtu.be/Ci4v7TJ9Ef8?list=UUc1HySm8k06DCLwnTUyxUgw

Maddie
Breed: Pit Bull Mix
Age: 5 yrs old
Sex: Female
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.

Name:
Fiona
Breed: Mixed
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.

Name: Rusty
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.

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

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

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

Captain Jack is healthy, friendly and eating well. He's looking for a home with a minimum area outdoors of 15 x 20 with a small little dog type house, water bowl and some grass and weeds. While he eats the natural grasses and weeds in the area, he also likes Romaine Lettuce, Cactus, Dark Greens, & Bermuda Grass Hay.

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.

Sex: Female\Spayed
Organization: Labradors & Friends
Phone: (619) 990-7455
Bailey's Webpage: http://www.labradorsandfriends.org/7641936

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

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

TootsieAs featured on San Diego 6-CW Animal House!

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


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

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