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

Name:
Chloe
Breed: Maltipoo
Age: 5 months
Sex: Female
Organization: Maltese & More Rescue
Phone: (858) 349-5918
Website: http://www.adoptapet.com/maltese-more-rescue/

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

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

Name:
Poppy
Breed: Chihuahua mix
Age: 10 years old
Sex: Neutered Male
Organization: Holly's Garden Small Breed Rescue
Phone: (858) 271-4900
Website: HollysGarden.com

Mr. Poppy is a very sweet 10-year-old male Chihuahua weighing 9-pounds. This little guy was abandoned at the Carson Shelter where he didn't stand a chance of getting out alive at his age. He was alone, depressed, and confused. But now he's so happy to be out of the shelter. Thanks to his loving foster home, he's quickly blossomed into a wonderful companion and a perfect gentleman. He shows his appreciation every day by being cuddly and giving lots of kisses. He loves chilling on the couch watching TV with his people. His foster mom says he's one of the best dogs she's ever taken care of. Poppy gets along great with other dogs. He's respectful, obedient quiet and calm. He's also housebroken. His adoption fee is only $75, and that includes his neuter, micro-chip, and all his vaccinations. As an incentive, a certified dog trainer is offering free training. For more information about Poppy, please contact Judy with Holly's Garden Small Breed Rescue at (858) 271-4900. You can also go to HollysGarden.com for more information about other small breed dogs available for adoption, or to learn how you can become a foster family for a dog like Poppy.


SkyeClick on Skye's picture to see her video on KUSI Good Morning San Diego (and Click HERE to see Skye's TV Debut on San Diego 6-CW Animal House!)

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

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


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

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

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

GingerAs featured on San Diego 6-CW Animal House!

Name:
Ginger
Breed: Boston Beagle
Age: 1 year old
Sex: Spayed Female
Organization: El Cajon Animal Shelter, 1275 N. Marshall Street
Phone: (619) 441-1580 or (619) 579-3375
Webpage: http://www.adoptapet.com/shelter69341-pets.html

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


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

Name:
Jasper
Breed: Schnauzer
Age: 3 years old
Sex: Neutered Male
Organization: TheRescuedDog.org
Phone: (619) 356-3390

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


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

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

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

PeteyClick on Petey's picture to see his video on KUSI GOOD MORNING SAN DIEGO!

Name:
Petey
Breed: Poodle/Jack Russell blend
Age: 5 years old
Sex: Neutered Male
Organization: Maltese & More Rescue
Phone: (858) 349-5918
Website: http://www.adoptapet.com/maltese-more-rescue/

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


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

Name:
Alabama
Breed: Greyhound
Age: 5 years old
Sex: Spayed Female
Organization: Greyhound Adoption Center, 4821 Dehesa Rd in El Cajon
Phone: (800) HoundSavers
Web: HoundSavers.org

Alabama is a 5-year-old retired greyhound residing at the Greyhound Adoption Center. She came from the Caliente racetrack in Mexico after registering an astounding 391 races during her lengthy career. Alabama can't live with cats or tiny dogs, but would be happy living with another dog over 30 pounds. Alabama is a happy, playful girl who will be a great companion for an active family with children. All dogs from the Greyhound Adoption Center have a complete medical evaluation, are spayed or neutered, vaccinated, microchipped, and get a thorough dental cleaning. They're evaluated for temperament and personality, and tested with cats, small dogs, and young children before being profiled for a home. Construction at the facility has forced them to cancel their August Open House; however, private kennel tours may still be arranged every day between the hours of 1 and 3 PM by appointment. It's a wonderful way to learn more about greyhound rescue, rehab, adoption, and volunteer opportunities. Meanwhile, the next Open House will be held on Sunday, September 18, between 1 and 3 PM. For more info call 877-HoundSavers or visit HoundSavers.org.


Lilo and StitchClick on Lilo and Stitch's picture to see their video on San Diego 6-CW Animal House!

Names:
Lilo & Stitch
Breed: Shih Tzu
Age: 10 years & 12 years
Sex: Spayed Female/Neutered Male
Organization: Lionel's Legacy
Phone: 619-212-5623
Website: LionelsLegacy.org

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

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

Age: 16 week old puppy
Sex: Neutered Male
Organization: The Rescued Dog
Phone: (619) 356-3390
Website: TheRescuedDog.org

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

Sex: male and female
Organization: Lionel's Legacy
Phone: 619-212-5623
Website: LionelsLegacy.org

Lionel's Legacy took them in with a promise to keep them together, they are family to one another. They have both been to the vet and had the full work up including bloodwork and urinalysis. Both are in good health and recently had dentals. They don't have many teeth left between the 2 of them but that doesn't get in their way. They are great with other dogs and cats, well behaved at the vet and are house trained and ready to find a home where they can spend the rest of their lives together.

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

Name:
Bianca
Breed: Domestic Shorthair
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. You can meet Bianca and countless other cats and kittens this weekend at the MEGA Cat And Kitten Adoption Fair at the PETsMART off Aero Drive. It starts at 10 AM both days, and ends at 4 on Saturday and 3 on Sunday. Head to RescueHouse.org for details!


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

Name:
Oscar
Breed: Dachshund
Age: 4 years old
Sex: Neutered Male
Organization: El Cajon Animal Shelter, 1275 N. Marshall Street
Phone: (619) 441-1580 or (619) 579-3375
Webpage: http://www.adoptapet.com/shelter69341-pets.html

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

Sid
Breed: Chihuahua
Age: 10 years old
Sex: Neutered Male
Organization: Lionel's Legacy
Phone: (619) 212-5623
Website: www.lionelslegacy.org

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


KodaClick Gilly and Georgina's picture to see their video on San Diego 6-CW Animal House!

Names:
Gilly and Georgina
Breed: Domestic Short Hair Kittens
Age: 3.5 months old
Sex: Neutered Male (Black & white tuxedo) & Spayed Female (light gray tabby)
Organization: The Rescue House
Phone: (760) 591-1211
Website: RescueHouse.org

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Breed: Pit Bulls
Age: 8 and 9 years old
Sex: Neutered Males
Organization: Lionel's Legacy Senior Dog Rescue
Phone: (619) 212-5623
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!

Twink lives with other doggies and is great with everyone, she is approximately 12-14 years old and came to us with an old injury so she hops around on 3 legs most of the time. She is a happy go lucky girl and ready to show you how great life can be with a senior dog!

Name:
Noel
Breed: Terrier mix
Age: 10 years old
Sex: Spayed Female
Organization: Lionel's Legacy Senior Dog Rescue
Phone: (619) 212-5623
Website: LionelsLegacy.org

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


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

Name:
Makana
Breed: Shepherd/Labrador/Collie
Age: 6 months old
Sex: Spayed Female
Organization: Animal Rescuers Without Borders
Phone: (619) 977-3593
Website: ARWOB.org

Makana is a beautiful teenager who at 6-months of age, weighs 29-pounds, and could be 45-60 pounds full-grown. This well-socialized Labrador, Shepherd and maybe Border Collie mix is dog, cat, and kid friendly. She's crate trained, very food motivated, and smart, as well. She was rescued early in June from the streets of Baja as a lone pup, desperately searching for food. She's been quarantined, vaccinated, microchipped and spayed. Makana is a great guard dog and will bark whenever a stranger is around the home. She loves to play with other dogs, and would make an excellent companion for another high-energy dog, or an active person who might like a running partner. She's a little shy at first, but warms up quickly. Animal Rescuers Without Borders is not only looking for a forever home for this dog, they're also reaching out for a foster home for her. They're being forced to put dogs and cats into boarding facilities because there is a significant shortage of qualified foster families. PLEASE sign up to foster a dog or cat until a forever home can be found. All food, supplies and medical care is covered by the rescue, so there is no cost to the foster family....all they provide is a safe home, and a loving environment.

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

Name:
Baby
Breed: Domestic Short Hair
Age: 11 months old
Sex: Spayed Female
Organization: Animal Rescuers Without Borders
Phone: (619) 977-3593
Website: ARWOB.org

Baby is just 11-months-old, and has been waiting for a home since February....almost half her life. She has short, grey and white hair, and an amazing disposition. She's well-socialized, great with all people and other cats, and she'd most likely get used to a dog, given the chance. She's super fun and loves to play with her cat toys and climb on her cat tree. Baby's adoption fee is just $50, even though she's been spayed, microchipped, fully vaccinated and tested for feline leukemia. Baby is currently in boarding, so the rescue organization would also love it if a foster family would step up to keep her for a while until she finds her forever home. All supplies, food and medical are paid for while you foster, so you never have to worry about the expense. You'd be helping Baby get out of a kennel, and give her a chance to feel like a normal kitty, and be able to play in a home environment. Meanwhile, Animal Rescuers Without Borders would like you to know that they have so many young kittens available at the PETsMART Clairemont and PETsMART Oceanside locations. Please come by to meet some of the many felines available for adoption. You can also see them at ARWOB.org.

Misha
Breed: Shepherd mix
Age: 6-7 months old
Sex: Spayed Female
Organization: Animal Rescuers Without Borders
Phone: (619) 977-3593
Website: ARWOB.org

Misha is a super sweet and submissive Shepherd puppy who found her way to an elementary school in Baja, where the children fed and played with her. Fortunately, one of the teachers at the school is a rescuer, and that's how Misha wound up being transported to San Diego. Her wounds were already healing by that time, so we'll never know what happened to her that resulted in such serious scaring, but fortunately she doesn't seem to be in any pain. Misha is 30-pounds now, and is expected to reach 50-pounds full grown. This silly puppy is obviously good with children, and she also likes other dogs and cats. She behaves in her crate and rides well in the car. Because Animal Rescuers Without Borders already has so many PUPPIES and young KITTENS for adoption, they'd appreciate someone to step up and be a foster family for Misha, even if they can't find a permanent home. All medical care and supplies are covered by the rescue, and you just supply the home and the love. Their website is ARWOB.org where you can see most of their adoptable animals, and fill out an adoption or foster application. You can also call or text 619-977-3593.

Olive & Zoey
Breed: American Standard
Age: 9 months old
Sex: Female
Organization: San Diego House Rabbit Society
Phone: (858) 565-2869
Website: www.SanDiegoRabbits.org

Olive and Zoey are 9-month-old bunny sisters who are very bonded together, and therefore need a home together. They were brought to the shelter when they were just 6 weeks old. 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.

Name:
Chantilly
Breed: California Desert Tortoise
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.


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

Name: Rosetta (Rosy)
Breed: Yellow Labrador
Age: 1.5 years old
Sex: Spayed Female
Organization: Animal Rescuers Without Borders
Phone: (619) 977-3593 (call or text)
Website: ARWOB.org

Rosetta, or Rosy for short, was adopted from Animal Rescuers Without Borders when she was only 3-months-old. Recently, however, the family turned her into Animal Control to be euthanized saying that she was dog and leash aggressive. Thankfully, the shelter called ARWOB and gave them the chance to take Rosy back into their program. ARWOB didn't have any empty foster homes, so they put her into an experienced foster home with other dogs and cats, despite what her previous owners said about her. As it turns out, Rosy is NOT aggressive with the other dogs...though she was initially very high strung. All she really needed was some experience with other animals. She now lives with a 10-pound Chihuahua and three other dogs, and she's actually intimidated by the cats. She's housetrained, crate-trained, good when left in the house alone, excellent in the car, and loves to cuddle. She sleeps in her doggie bed at night and is exceptionally well-behaved. She's obedient off-leash and will come when you call her. It's clear she needs a gentle handler who can continue to work with her around other dogs, without being overly harsh, If you want to see her playing with other dogs, go to ARWOB.org and click on her bio, and if you'd like to give her a chance, even if you'd like to just foster her for now, please fill out an application.

Sex: Spayed Female
Organization: Animal Rescuers Without Borders

Website: ARWOB.org

This sweet, happy Shepherd/Labrador mix is named Silly. She was adopted when she was just a few months old from Animal Rescuers Without Borders, but sadly the family quickly realized they had no time to train or spend time with an energetic, playful and curious puppy. At 9 months of age, she's still just a puppy, and really needs a family who can spend quality time teaching her how to become a well-behaved dog. She's already well-socialized...she's great with all people, other dogs, and even cats. Silly is 40-pounds now, and may reach 45-50 pounds, full-grown. She's energetic, so a runner or hiker would be an excellent match, and ideally, she'd join a family who already has another dog for her to play with, and a large yard to play in. Even if you're not interested in permanently adopting right now, ARWOB could really use a temporary foster because Silly is losing her current foster home this weekend. Please fill out an application at ARWOB.org or call or text their phone number.

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

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


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

Age: 4.5 month old puppy
Sex: Spayed Female
Organization: Animal Rescuers Without Borders
Phone: (619) 977-3593 (call or text)
Website: ARWOB.org

Annie was rescued from the streets of Baja 3 months ago with her five siblings. Sadly, they all had parvo, and only three puppies survived. Annie is one of the survivors, and she's now healthy and ready for adoption. Her siblings were adopted this past weekend, so only Annie is left. While Annie is just 15-pounds now, she has the potential to reach 50 when she's full grown. She'll need an adopter with time and patience to handle house-training and teaching her basic commands. Her foster family says she's very smart and extremely food oriented, so that may make training a lot easier. She's already crate-trained and will sleep comfortably through the night for 7-hours. Annie needs mental and physical stimulation, and her ideal family would have another dog for her to play with. Annie is great with well-behaved children, dogs and cats. There's a $350 adoption fee, but every penny of that money will be used to offset her medical expenses, or the expenses of the next dog they save. Plus, she's spayed, microchipped and vaccinated. Even if you're not ready to adopt, Annie could really use an immediate foster family as she's losing her current foster home TODAY. You can submit a foster or adoption application online at ARWOB.org.

Domino is a handsome little champagne-blond chihuahua for adoption from Animal Rescuers Without Borders. He's 10-pounds, at 1.5 years of age. He's a perfect gentleman, 100% housebroken and very crate-trained. He's excellent with both cats and dogs and also loves to play with children. He will play, play, play, but when it's time to settle down, he'll crash with you in front of the TV like a couch-potato. He'll be an excellent family dog and a good candidate for playing at the dog park, plus he enjoys riding in cars and never gets car-sick. He's been available for adoption for 7-months, and yet nobody has filled out an application, even after they reduced his adoption fee to $50. Of course, he's had a vet checkup, he's up to date on vaccinations and microchipped. If you'd like to meet Domino, fill out an application at ARWOB.org, and they'll set up a meet and greet with you near his Mission Valley foster home, if that's convenient for you.

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.

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.

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. Brok is an ambassador for all the special-needs, visually-impaired dogs in shelters everywhere. Meet Bock and 50 other greyhounds this Sunday at the Greyhound Adoption Center's Open House. Tour their facility from 1-to-3 PM, on Dehesa Road in El Cajon and visit with volunteers to learn more about greyhound rescue, rehab, adoption, and volunteer opportunities.

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

Jules is a 1.5 year old neutered bunny boy who is an interesting mix of a curly Rex and Angora, with beautiful black markings. He's very shy but will cuddle with you if you pet him just right. Because of his long fur, Jules must be groomed at least once a week. He loves to play and nibble and would make a great boyfriend for a spayed bunny girl or a wonderful companion for a quiet person who would like a little companionship. If you've never owned a bunny, or just want to know about what it takes to care for a rabbit, we recommend taking the San Diego House Rabbit Society's BUNNY 101 class at their Kearny Mesa Shelter located on Mercury Street.

It's a WIN-WIN for everyone, senior dogs and people alike! Murray is one of the dogs eligible for this program. He's a 5-pound, 8-year-old Chihuahua.

Website: ARWOBorg

Bert is a 1-year-old, 13-pound Rat Terrier/Chihuahua mix who has been available for adoption for 5-months. When Bert's brother Ernie was adopted and taken away from him, it was like taking away his security blanket . Bert was distraught and became fearful and reactive. However, after some training sessions with a wonderful private trainer, and the help of Animal Rescuers Without Borders volunteers, Bert has finally learned to trust again, and now he loves to play with others. His foster family has another small dog and a couple of cats, and they say he's also good with children. He's taken some obedience training, knows some basic commands and walks well on a leash. Bert would do well with an experienced dog owner who has good observational skills, and can use positive reinforcement to correct him if he acts ornery. All ARWOB pets are vaccinated, spayed or neutered, microchipped and vet checked before adoption. They're also one of the few rescues who will allow you to "foster-to-adopt", just to make sure it's a good match before all the paperwork is signed. Plus, they're featuring a special summer adoption fee of just $50 for any Chihuahua or Chihuahua mixes. Whether you're interested in a temporary foster pet or a permanent adoption, call or go to ARWOB.org where you can learn more about this great organization.

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.

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.

Phone: (858) 333-6911 x 501
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.

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!!

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.

Phone: (877) HoundSavers
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.

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).

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

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!

Website: ARWOB.org

Despite his rough start in life (and scarred face to prove it), JJ is the poster boy for "gentle giant": He is a really sweet boy who just wants to love and be loved! JJ was rescued at the end of December, by the Border Patrol while walking in an isolated area near the USA border; he was quite emaciated when he arrived, and the healed scars on his muzzle still tell the story of how hard he had to fend for himself in order to survive as a stray. While JJ is shy and initially hesitant to approach strangers, he turns into a big, placid teddy bear who is all about love and snuggles as soon as he warms up to you. He really loves squeaky toys: he will gently pick them from your hand and happily trot away to his bed holding them; he will also greet you with his toy. He craves back and ear rubs, can spend half an hour with his chin resting on your lap while you pet him, and he will even nudge your hand with his paw or nose to ask for more when you stop. JJ is clean inside the house (not one single indoors "oopsie" in 25 days, even though he spends the whole night in a room with a closed door) and he is also well on his way to being crate-trained. JJ has not been destructive when left alone, and he isn't much of a barker either. JJ currently lives in a temporary foster home with 3 other dogs, and he is really good with them as long as they are not trying to be bossy with him. Sadly, JJ is not properly socialized to cats, and sees them as prey; with 3 cats in his current foster family, this means that, as much as he longs to chill inside with the whole family, he can only do so in a crate. So, even if you can't adopt at this time, ARWOB would be thrilled with the possibility of a temporary foster home! Because JJ is so shy, we feel he'd be better in a househould without small children who might startle him with brisk movements or high-pitched screams. He would however most probably be great with older children (10-12 years old and over)/ This sweet boy is in need of a foster home where there are not any cats. If you are interested in fostering this gentle giant until he is adopted, or are wanting to adopt and give him the forever home he has never had, please fill out an application online. He will certainly bring some sunshine into your lives along with whisker kisses. Don't wait...Submit a foster or adoption application today! We also have foster to adopt trials..the best of both worlds!

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.

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.

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

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

Stiltz is a Patriotic Pet from the Camp Pendleton Animal Shelter. She's an adorable 3-year-old Chihuahua with little ballerina legs. She's spayed, vaccinated, microchipped, and even housebroken. Stiltz gets along well with the other friendly dogs in her play group at the animal shelter, and she adores getting attention and affection. Due to recent changes in Camp Pendleton's base access procedures, there's been a SIGNIFICANT drop in the number of people coming to adopt cats and dogs. The public CAN still adopt from the base shelter...it's just a bit more complicated to get a base pass. To all retired military, or active duty military who have ID cards and can easily go out to the shelter: if you've been thinking about adopting, please come to Building 25132 to see if there's a dog or cat for your family. Retired and active military are crucial to these shelter animals. Google "Camp Pendleton Animal Shelter" and you'll get a link to their list of animals, and directions to the shelter which is open Thursday through Sunday from 10-to-5 and Monday through Wednesday from 10-to-3.

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.

Conrad is an active, playful, 3-year-old Pittie mix, weighing just 57-pounds. He was found as a stray, and brought to the Chula Vista Animal Shelter where he is now available for adoption. He'd enjoy living with someone who likes to take long walks, or somebody who needs a good, reliable running partner. Conrad can also keep busy playing with his toys. He'd do best in a home with children who are at least 12 years of age, because he's pretty rowdy when he's playing. He gets along great with the dogs he's met, but he needs a home without cats. He's treat motivated and knows how to sit.

Taz is a Min-Pin/Chihuahua mix and such a sweetheart! He's a lovable lap dog when it's cuddle time, and a huge outdoors-man when its time to play! He loves to play Tug-o-war and he almost always wins! He loves to run and play with other dogs, he's very fast and surprisingly strong for such a little dude. Taz is in a foster home, so they also know he's completely house-trained, and he's good with cats, which is so nice to know when you're bringing a new dog into your family if you have felines you don't want to upset. He hardly sheds, has a great appetite, and is very treat motivated! Taz is already neutered, vaccinated, microchipped and ready to go to a good home. He just needs a family who can play with him, and take him for walks, to the beach, or to the off-leash dog park where he can socialize with other pups. Of course, we also want a family who will just love and spoil him!

Rudy is a 3-year-old, 50-pound sweetheart, listed at the shelter as a Terrier-Basset Hound mix...probably because of his adorable stumpy legs, and the coloring of a Staffordshire Terrier. Rudy is a pretty solid boy and an all-around great guy. He listens well, is good in the car, likes everyone he's ever met, and has a good medium energy level. He's not reactive to dogs on walks or through fences...in fact, he rarely even barks! Rudy loves playing with toys and will entertain himself.

But with her healthy appetite, she's put on weight, and is looking beautiful and healthy with her soft, shiny coat. Rose is a very affectionate girl who loves to be touched and will follow her person around. She has excellent indoor manners, walks well on a leash, and loves to ride in the car and play in the yard. Rose is the type of dog who would be perfectly happy being an only pet and the apple of her family's eye, but she could also live well with a male dog companion close to her own size. She is not, however, a big fan of cats, and because she was not treated very well by children before, we'd like to see her go into an adult only home.

She's 66-pounds, loves playing with other greyhounds and toys, but hasn't been tested yet with cats. As a general rule, Greyhounds should never be off leash unless they're in a totally fenced in area.

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

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.

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.

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

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

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


QuinnAs featured on the mighty 1090 Pet Connection!

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

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

Twinkie As featured on KUSI Good Morning San Diego!


Name: Twinkie
Breed: Chihuahua mix
Age: 3-years-old
Sex: Neutered Male
Organization: Wagging Dog Rescue
Phone: (310) 853-0757
Website: WaggingDog.org

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

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 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.

Website:
PEAC.org

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

Name: Bailey

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

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

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

TootsieAs featured on San Diego 6-CW Animal House!

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


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

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