Blanca's Webpage (with more pictures)        

At 1.5 years old, Blanca is a beautiful 35 lb lab/husky mix. This sweet girl was another one of TRD's rescues from the streets of Mexico. Her foster has been working hard with her on basic training, impulse control and confidence in new situations/environments. Inside the home she is the perfect dog! She is goofy and sweet and loves her people. This striking, gorgeous girl knows many basic commands including recall and place training. Blanca recently completed a specialized board and train program to obtain the most comprehensive plan and tools to help her be successful with a new family. She will need strict structure and someone willing to commit to her training in order for her to become the best dog she can be. Different dogs require different training techniques depending on their behaviors and personality and we are committed to finding a family for Blanca that will support these needs. Blanca will go to her forever home with support from her professional trainers that includes a session to learn about the tools needed for Blanca to be successful. This smart girl will flourish with the right people who have dog experience and understand what's best for her. We gave this sweet girl a chance at a new life from her solitary, stressful life on the streets and now we are looking for her perfect family to support the rest of her learning and transition.

This 83 lb, 5 year male Pitbull/Rottweiler mix is about as sweet as they come. Carter is good with other friendly dogs, and humans, though we recommend kids over 10 because he might bump a young child and knock them down accidentally. Carter LOVES his kong and playing with balls, enjoys walks, and hanging out with his furry foster brother and sis. He is house trained and crate trained, and is what we call a ‘sprinter’, not a long distance runner, as he does not require long walks, but would rather snuggle with his people after a walk. If you want an easy going gentle giant of a pup, Carter just might be your guy! Carter’s adoption fee of $250.00 includes his neuter, microchip and current vaccinations.

Erina is a beautiful mini lop mix who arrived to us underweight and with some light matting on her fur. Erina can be a little sassy, but will still chase your hand for pets and attention- so if she's won your heart, with time and love, you'll get to win hers! She can be a little messy bunny and has been battling health issues for all of her life, so she will need a home who can provide extra care and keep a special eye on her to make sure she is as healthy and happy as she can be. Erina can be a little wary at first with a serious stink eye when displeased, but can be won over with treats and the development of trust. When people walk by, Erina will often hop up, hoping for attention.

Sinatra
Age: 5 years old
Breed: Pomeranian Mix
Gender: Neutered Male
Organization: Second Chance Dog Rescue
Phone: (619) 847-8755
Website: www.secondchancedogrescue.org

Meet Sinatra! Sinatra is a super sweet 5-year-old Pomeranian mix and weighs about 8 lbs. He enjoys a good nap or a good adventure in the yard. And he loves to sit on your lap for a good cuddle. He hasn’t been on a leash much but did really well in a busy social setting meeting new people and dogs, but likes to explore the car when on the road so may need a seat belt. He gets along well with all the animals in the house including dogs, cats, and even a pig. He does want to chase an occasional chicken but all in good fun. He’s met many dogs here and gets along with all of them because he’s a pretty chill guy. Sinatra hasn’t even joined in on the barking and has been pretty quiet the whole time. He’s really a sweet boy just looking for a family to love and he’s been a great dog while here. He met some children and did ok but was a little nervous with the younger noisier kids, so a home with older respectful children would be best. He’s not quite 100% on his housetraining but really close...and I’m sure with some consistency and walks he will be good in no time. So if you are looking for a great little sweet pup, please apply for Sinatra. Sinatra is neutered, up to date on vaccines and microchipped. His adoption fee is $250

Jasper
Hi there! I'm one of the 452 rabbits rescued from a hoarding situation in Texas. A barn is not a fun place to be when its crowded with way too many rabbits and not enough food or water. I can be sweet and outgoing.

Milton
I'm Milton and I was at another shelter for several months before coming here. I am a little shy at first but I will steal your heart if you give me the chance to get to know you. As fluffy as my fur looks, I need a good brushing everyday to keep it looking and feeling fabulous- I don't just wake up like this! I'm look for a home that doesn't mind a bit of sass and has the time and patience to pay special attention to my fur.

Coco
I'm Coco and I enjoy being gently pet on my forehead. My original family was no longer able to care for me so I found my way to SDHRS to look for my new forever home! I unfortunately have a past injury that affected my back and hip. If you look at my pen card, I'm a blue dot bunny so that means it'll be a life-long issue and I might have trouble getting around from time to time. I'm pretty spry and active though, so if you try to pick me up and I hop away, I could hurt my back more. Despite that, I still have a lot of love to give to a patient and quiet home willing to accommodate my health issues!

Zelda
Meet Zelda! Zelda and her three siblings were found at the Tijuana Estuary as very young kits that needed immediate help. Luckily, they found their way to SDHRS and are happy and safe. Zelda is now a curious little girl, who loves to see what's going on around her. Zelda is a great cuddly bunny and enjoys human interaction. She likes to take naps and you might even catch her doing a bunny flop! Zelda would do well in a home with a family that can give her all the love and attention she deserves. She is bonded to a cute lop named Lewis, and will stick together through thick and thin.

Even though Addie had her hind limbs taken by an awful human and was dumped in the desert, she did not allow it to break her spirit. She has been through so much yet she doesn't look back and is so loving and gentle. Addie craves to be loved/petted and seeks out the nearest hand.

She gets around like a pro on carpet, concrete and tile but is unsteady on hardwood floors. Addie has just received her wheels to help cruise the neighborhood for friends and is picking up "rolling" quickly. Addie will most likely need long term diaper changes but with some tricks from her foster family it is manageable. She has vision loss in her left eye but it doesn't slow her down! She is a social butterfly and would love to have a family that hosts lots of friends, visits with neighbors or frequents dog parks, brewery tasting rooms, etc.

Pepper was rescued from a high kill shelter with a fractured pelvis and an infected foxtail in her paw. She is all fixed up and ready to start her new life! Pepper is around 5 years old and a tiny 7 pounds. She is spunky and hilarious!! Guaranteed to make you laugh every day. This little cutie LOVES to play with toys, dogs and spend time sun bathing. She's working on not barking at strangers and is eager to please. We are looking for a dog savvy family to help balance her out. Pepper is an amazing snuggler and is very affectionate. She would make a great companion. Pepper would do best in a home without cats or young children.

When he brings you the toy, just say "drop it" and he will drop it so you can throw it again, and he will blitz off after it and bring it to you again. We want Jack to go to a home where the children are at least 16 years old because Jack wants to be the boss of his food bowl when he is eating, and kids getting close will make him nervous and protective of his food. That IS a behavior easily modified, and you can find reputable information (check those credentials) on-line to show you how to do it, or consult with a local dog behavior expert. If you're ready for an active, fun, smart canine companion who is a great size, then come on out and meet Jack. Maybe you'll decide he is the perfect match for you. Adoption fee $110 includes neuter, vaccinations, and microchip. The public is welcome to come adopt the patriotic pets at the Camp Pendleton Animal Shelter! All pets are spayed or neutered, vaccinated, and micro-chipped prior to adoption. Adoption Hours: Thursday - Sunday, 10 a.m. - 5 p.m., and Monday - Wednesday 10 a.m. - 3 p.m. Closed on federal holidays. Phone: (760) 725-8120. Good idea to call ahead if you're interested in a specific pet, just to ensure that the pet is still at the shelter and available for adoption. And we can give you directions to the shelter too.


Holoween PetsClick on Archie, Moochie, Lucky, Scrappy and Bear's picture to see their video on KUSI Good Morning San Diego! Update: Scrappy, Bear and Lucky have been adopted!

Name: Archie
Breed: Great Pyrenees
Age: 3 years old
Gender: Neutered Male
Organization: Great Pyrenees Association of Southern California
Website: GreatPyrRescue.org

This sweet boy was found as a stray, emaciated at 61lbs. Now he weighs in at a healthy 95lbs. Because of his back ground, he's not willing to share a tasty treasure (NO BONES) - resource guarder! He's okay with his humans & food bowls....just needs separate feeding with other dogs. Archie loves walks (great on a leash), cuddles/snuggles and hot dogs are his favorite treat! Archie loves affection with his humans, and small dogs (No large males, he's a ladies man). He's not so excited about cats, so he would do best with a family without the feline kind. Archie's looking for his Furever Family and hopes to meet the perfect match at Howl-O-Ween Hounds.

Moochie is a 4 year old purebred Maltese who came to us with a missing foot and a badly infected leg. Unfortunately his leg could not be saved and had to be amputated, but he bounced back quickly after his surgery and never looked back. He gets around so well that people don’t ever seem to notice anything ‘missing’. He’s a happy boy despite his misfortune, who is very affectionate, playful and a joy to have around. He is completely housebroken and will go outside or right smack dab in the middle of a pee pad inside. He loves to tag along on car rides and walks well on a leash. He was completely matted and had to be shaved down, but will be beautiful when his hair grows out. He has about the sweetest face you’ve ever seen according to his foster mom who says she fell in love with him the very first day. He is a go-with-the flow kind of guy who adapts quickly to new surroundings and is and is just an all around wonderful housemate.

KaiserAs featured on the Mighty 1090 Pet Connection!

Name:
Kaiser
Breed: German Shepherd (Purebred....Imported from Germany)
Age: 5-6 years old
Gender: Neutered Male
Organization: Happy Hearts German Shepherd Rescue
Phone: Donna - (619) 548-4869
Website: www.happyheartsgsr.org

Kaiser loves people, but not other dogs so much, which makes it very challenging to find him a home because he can't attend adoption events where everyone can see and appreciate this gorgeous purebred German Shepherd. He is very affectionate and loves walks and being with people. He is medium energy. He likes to play ball, but is just as content to lay down and cuddle. Kaiser was actually imported from Germany as a working dog and the family intended to have him as a guard dog. He received training from his owners and ended up getting surrendered to a high kill shelter when they didn't want him anymore. Happy Hearts picked him up from the shelter once he was listed to be euthanized. That's right, an expensive shepherd imported from Germany winds up on the kill list because his owners didn't want him. Sometimes people wonder why rescue agencies insist on adopters wanting a dog as a family member, and not as a guard dog. This is because statistically, people who consider their dogs to be family, won't throw them away at a later date. Those who just want a dog for guarding, don't tend to make that same emotional bond. Although he is professionally trained, Kaiser is being kept in a kennel, as opposed to a foster home, because most foster families already have other dogs. Since Kaiser needs to be an only dog, finding a foster family for him has posed to be a challenge. Even if you are not interested in adopting right now, please consider temporarily fostering this wonderful, well-trained boy until a permanent loving family can be found. All supplies and expenses are covered while you foster Kaiser. It's also a great way for you to find out if he'd be a good match for you.

Age: 10 years old
Gender: Neutered
Weight: 7-pounds
Organization: Maltese & More Rescue
Phone: (858) 278-4049
Website: www.malteseandmorerescue.org

Arthur is a peppy 10 year old maltipoo that was destined for euthanasia at a Los Angeles shelter due to many health issues. M&M took him into their rescue and had surgery on his month for fistulas, had his dental taken care of, and got him neutered. He's now in great shape and feeling like a new man. Since his teeth were so rotten, extractions were plentiful, which means a soft diet (canned food) is required for the rest of his life. Arthur is the cutest little guy that gives you such loving looks, while cocking his head to one side. It's like he knows exactly what you're saying to him. He snuggles in bed with his foster mom and doesn't make a peep all night. Arthur enjoys outings and is a good boy while riding in the car. He is a great companion as he's very affectionate and quite. Pretty much an easy keeper. Arthur has been microchipped, neutered vaccinated and his dental has been done. He would be great with a senior and qualifies for our "Senior to Senior" program.

Meet Laura.....This darling 3 year old Maltese came to us last week through our local shelter. Horribly matted and partially blind, she wasn't receiving any interest. She seems to see enough to find her way around without bumping into objects. Laura is a very sweet and gentle natured girl that gets along great with other dogs. She's just as happy as can be and dances in circles when she hears her foster mom's voice. Laura loves to go for walks as well as rides in the car. She loves everyone she meets and is so friendly. At night, she cuddles in with her foster mom on the couch until bedtime where she loves to sleep pressed against her foster moms leg. She is very affectionate but also likes her own space. Being that she's about 9 lbs., Laura would be an awesome addition to a wonderful family. Her coat is straight, non-shedding and will grow out in no time. Groomed, vet checked, vaccinated, microchipped and spayed , this young lady is now accepting applications for adoption

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!

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.

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.

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.

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

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. They also have lots of volunteer opportunities, and could use more foster homes to help them save dogs and cats, just like Chiquita.

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.

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.

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.

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.

They're also neutered, microchipped and vaccinated. The adoption fee is $300, with a training deposit of $100, but it's refundable within 3 months. Training must be provided in a timely fashion to ensure the pups become great canine citizens. Since they're both so eager to please, training should be a lot of fun, and a wonderful bonding experience for the puppies and their new family members.

Gender: Spayed Female
Organization: California Labradors, Retrievers, and More Rescue
Phone: (858) 273-5386
Website: labsandmore.org

Meet Layla! She's a 9-year-old purebred yellow Labrador Retriever. She's house trained, doesn't get on the furniture unless she's invited up, and sleeps quietly through the night in the room of her foster family. She's fairly active for her age and gets along with other dogs, but does prefer dogs with more submissive personalities. Layla's also being fostered with cats and is fine with them. Layla would like to be your one and only in the home. Even though she's fine interacting with dogs in public, she does't like sharing her people with other dogs while she's at home…but that's okay…she has enough love to give all by herself! She walks great on leash and loves to play with her tennis ball. Layla is spayed, microchipped, and up to date on vaccinations.

Breed: Cocker Spaniel Mix
Age: 7-9 years old
Gender: Neutered Male
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.

She's been around toddlers and doesn't pay much attention to them. She loves everyone she meets. She comes when called, and sits when told…albeit briefly. Palomita loves riding in the car, she's learning to walk on a leash, and she's totally housebroken. With her big smile and wiggly butt, she's sure to brighten your day and your life. Her snoring will always let you know where she's sleeping. Palomita's adoption fee includes her spay, microchip and vaccinations. Second Chance Dog Rescue is looking for a local San Diego family, and they require a home visit prior to adoption. Please visit SecondChanceDogRescue.org to fill out an adoption application today, so that we can find Palomita a home for the holidays, and beyond!

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.

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

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.

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.

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!

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.

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!

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.

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.

Age: 3.5 Month old kitten
Gender: 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.

Chantilly
Breed: California Desert Tortoise
Age: 15 years old
Gender: 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.

Age: 3 years old
Gender: Spayed Female, 45 pounds
Organization: Second Chance Dog Rescue
Phone: (619) 721-3647
Website: www.secondchancedogrescue.org

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.

Breed: Domestic medium-hair, solid black cat
Age: 5 years old
Gender: Neutered Male
Organization: The Rescue House

Website: Rescuehouse.org

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

Domestic short-hair, white/black spotted cat
Age:
3 months old
Gender: Spayed female
Organization: The Rescue House
Phone: (760) 591-1211
Website: Rescuehouse.org

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

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 just wants to be near people and will lean against you for a head scratch. He's respectful of space and won't knock you over. Out of his kennel he's a happy goofball. 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.

Nina is such a sweet girl and happy to hang out with you at home or in the backyard. She walks well on the leash and enjoys going out on walks. She loves people, and enjoys running in the yard.

Breed: Short-haired Grey Tabby
Age: 3 month old kittens
Gender: Neutered Males
Organization: The Rescue House
Phone: (760) 591-1211
Website: Rescuehouse.org

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

Website: ItsThePits.org

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.

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.

Hitch

Age: 1 year, 2 months old
Gender: Neutered Male
Organization: PBRSD
Phone: (858) 333-6911 x 501

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.

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.

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.

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.

Rudy is a 3-year-old, 50-pound sweetheart, listed at the shelter as a Terrier-Basset Hound mix...probably because of his adorable stumpy legs, and the coloring of a Staffordshire Terrier.

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.

If you're interested in adopting Daisy, you can get more information about her on the Friends of SNAP's Facebook page, or you can call (619) 525-3047.

Name: Devo
Breed: Greyhound
Age: 5 months
Gender: Neutered Male

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

Name:
Maddie
Breed: Pit Bull Mix
Age: 5 yrs old
Gender: 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.

Phone Number: (818) 830-3380
Website: cs.siameserescue.org

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
Breed: California Desert Tortoise
Age: 25 years old with a 100 year life expectancy
Gender: Male
Organization: San Diego Turtle & Tortoise Society
Phone: (760) 738-8865
Website: www.SDTurtle.org

Update: Captain Jack is hibernating and unavailable for adoption until Spring.


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

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

Name: Bailey
Breed: Labrador Retriever/Chocolate
Age: 7-8 years
Gender: Spayed Female
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.
