KashiAs featured on San Diego 6-CW Animal House!


Name: Kashi
Breed: Spitz /American Eskimo
Age: 4.5 month old puppy
Sex: Neutered Male
Organization: Animal Rescuers Without Borders
Phone: (619) 977-3593 call or text
Website: ARWOB.org

This little guy named Kashi, was saved from the streets of Baja when an Animal Rescuers Without Borders volunteer was doing rescue work down there and noticed a very small shivering little beige ball of fur hiding between trash. She approached and offered him food...and the rest was history. Kashi was fostered and quarantined in Mexico for a month while waiting for his vaccinations to kick in. Now he's happy and healthy with a San Diego foster family that includes dogs and cats! Kashi is fully vaccinated, neutered and microchipped. He'd thrive with an active family who will take him on walks, hikes, or socializing at the off-leash dog beach. He's also perfectly happy snuggling with the people he loves. Like all puppies, he'll still need some training, but he's learning how to walk on a leash and sleep in his crate. Please apply online at ARWOB.org and stop by to meet him and lots of other dogs and cats this Saturday from 10-to-1 at the Clairemont PETCO, or call them now for more information.

ChazAs featured on KUSI Good Morning San Diego (and click HERE to see Chaz's video from his visit to San Diego 6-CW Animal House!)!


Name: Chaz
Breed: Shih Tzu mix
Age: 2 years old
Sex: Neutered Male
Organization: Animal Rescuers Without Borders
Phone: (619) 977-3593 (call or text)
Website: ARWOB.org

Meet Chaz, a 12-pound Shih Tzu for adoption at only 2 years of age. His previous owner purchased him as an 8-week-old puppy and had him with the family as an indoor dog, however due to his wife's allergies, they've been spending less and less time with him, and decided to let him go. Animal Rescuers Without Borders found a foster home for him, got him neutered and up to date on all his medical. He's now ready for a loving forever home, with a family who is looking for a super friendly lap-dog. Chaz previously lived with children, and he's doing well with the other dogs in his foster home. He hasn't been tested with cats, but based on his personality, he'll probably do well. He's super happy, and could probably use some training to rein in some of that enthusiasm. Since they aren't having an adoption event this weekend, you can fill out an application at ARWOB.org and meet up with his foster family who lives near Mission Valley.

ChiquisAs featured on San Diego 6-CW Animal House!


Name: Chiquis
Breed: Shepherd
Age: 2 years old
Sex: Spayed Female
Organization: California Labradors, Retrievers, and More Rescue
Phone: (858) 273-5386 (voicemail only)
Website: www.labsandmore.org

Chiquis is a beautiful two year old Shepherd mix. This gorgeous girl was turned in to a high-kill shelter by a family when they moved and decided not to take her with them. Their loss is your gain! Chiquis is great with kids and other dogs, but cats should not be a part of her forever home as she has too much fun chasing them. Chiquis would love to find a family where she can enjoy being cherished and involved in family activities...even if it's just watching TV on the couch. She'd loves walking and hiking, and just needs a comfy dog bed to sleep on at night. At 2 years of age, Chiquis is a quick study and eager to continue her training with you. If you are interested in adopting Chiquis, please submit an online adoption application at www.labsandmore.org. Help even more dogs by attending the upcoming fundraiser, Bark in the Barn, on Saturday, May 21st, from 5:30-8:30 PM. Visit www.labsandmore.org for more information!

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


Name: Liz
Breed: Schnauzer mix
Age: 1 year old
Weight: 17-pounds
Sex: Spayed Female
Organization: Animal Rescuers Without Borders
Phone: (619) 977-3593 (Call or text)
Web: ARWOB.org

This 17-pound Schnauzer mix, and her sister, Betsy, were rescued in Baja. Liz and Betsy spent their first year of life locked on a roof patio, living in very unsanitary conditions. Someone from Animal Rescuers Without Borders approached the family just as they were about to let the dogs loose to fend for themselves in the streets. Now, the girls are safe and healthy in a San Diego boarding facility. Of course, boarding is VERY expensive, so if there's someone willing to foster one or two dogs, they'd appreciate even a temporary home until a forever family can be found. All food, supplies and medical expenses are covered by ARWOB, so it wouldn't cost you a thing. It's also a great experience for a family looking to volunteer together. Liz is good with everyone and everything. She's a little shy at first with people, but she absolutely loves other dogs. She's probably going to need a foster, and eventually a forever family, who will work with her on training, and becoming a well-behaved indoor dog. Call or text 619-977-3593, or visit ARWOB.org for a foster or adoption application.

Barley and OatsClick on Barley and Oats' picture to see their video San Diego 6-CW Animal House!

Names:
Barley and Oats (Barley is tan, Oats is blk & white)
Breed: Terrier mixes
Age: 3 1/2 months old
Sex: Neutered Males
Organization: Animal Rescuers Without Borders
Phone: (619) 977-3593
Website: ARWOB.org

These puppiess were turned over to Animal Rescuers Without Borders a month ago, after a family with two unaltered dogs had an unwanted litter. Sadly, this could have been prevented by taking advantage of the many low-cost and free spay/neuter services available in San Diego County. Initially, there were three pups, but the female was adopted, leaving these two boys behind. Ideally, Barley and Oats, could be adopted together since they are such great friends, however we understand they may have to be adopted into separate homes. Barley is the tan puppy, and Oates is black and white. They are extremely well socialized puppies who love to play with other dogs, and have also grown up in a foster home with several children ranging in age from toddler to 12 years of age. The family is working together to crate train and housetrain the pups in preparation for their new home. If you'd like to adopt one or both of these brothers, visit ARWOB.org for an adoption application, or to find out more about this Saturday's adoption event at the Claremont Petco where they'll have lots of dogs and cats for adoption.

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

Name:
Spot
Breed: Pointer/Terrier
Age: 6 months old
Sex: Spayed Female
Organization: The Rescued Dog
Phone: (619) 356-3390
Website: TheRescuedDog.org

This 6-month-old puppy was pulled from the Imperial County Humane Society and put into The Rescued Dog's foster program. Spot is very connected to her people. She's sensitive and responsive to training. She's sweet and silly, and looks to her people for leadership and love. Spot walks nicely on the leash and enjoys playing fetch. Initially, Spot was very tense and internalized stress. She was insecure about meeting new dogs, especially large ones. Careful training and a lot of care and patience have helped her grow into a more confident dog, and she'll greatly benefit from continued training. Spot lives with other dogs her size and loves playing with them, but she's still insecure and needs slow introductions when meeting other dogs. She's probably not going to be a dog-park dog, as new situations can still be a little stressful for her, but with proper introductions and positive reinforcement, Spot would be happy in a home with another dog. She weighs 35-pounds now, but could be 50 to 60 fully grown. To meet Spot, please fill out an application at TheRescuedDog.org, or come meet Spot at Art Walk in Little Italy on Saturday from 9-to-noon!TheRescuedDog.org is having an adoption event at Wildside Unlimited on India Street.

AgnesClick on Agnes' picture to see her video on San Diego 6-CW Animal House!


Name: Agnes
Breed: Pit Bull Terrier Mix
Age: 9 years old
Sex: spayed female
Organization: Chula Vista Animal Care Facility
Phone: (619) 691-5174
Email: lsepton@chulavistaca.gov
Website: http://www.chulavistaca.gov/departments/animal-care

Agnes is a ladylike, playful, 9-year-old Pit Bull who weighs 49-pounds. She was was brought in to the shelter as a stray in early March, and she's yet to be noticed by a good adopter. She's the type of dog who would enjoy daily walks and playing fetch before settling down with the family at night. Because she was a stray, we don't know what she's like with toddlers, so we recommend she go to a home with kids about 10 years of age or older. She gets along with most dogs, but probably not good with cats. Agnes is treat motivated, loves a good massage, and can sit and shake with both paws. For more info call the adoption counselor, Linda, at (619) 691-5174 or email lsepton@chulavistaca.gov.

LentiniClick on Lentini's picture to see his video San Diego 6-CW Animal House (and Lentini was featured on KUSI Good Morning San Diego, CLICK HERE to see that video)!

Name:
Lentini
Breed: Jack Russell Terrier
Age: 6 years old
Sex: Neutered Male
Organization: Dogs Fur Days
Phone: (619) 665-1993
Website: DogsFurDays.org

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

Breed: Lab/Pointer Mix
Age: 1 year old
Sex: Neutered Male
Organization: California Labradors, Retrievers, and More Rescue
Phone: (858) 273-5386 (voicemail only)
Website: www.labsandmore.org

Karl is a handsome 1 year old black Lab mixed with something else, possibly German Short-Haired Pointer. He is available for adoption from California Labradors, Retrievers, and More Rescue in San Diego. Karl's coat is very shiny and he is just a doll! He is great on a leash, loves older or bigger kids (he's too big and clumsy for toddlers), is great with other dogs, and is house trained. Karl prefers to be around his people, so he'd love a family who is home more than they are not. Karl would love to go walking or hiking with you, and can't wait to attend training classes with his new family! If you are interested in adopting Karl, the first step in being approved to adopt is submitting an online adoption application at www.labsandmore.org.

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


Name: Rex
Breed: Chocolate Labrador Retriever
Age: 1.5 years old
Sex: Neutered Male
Organization: The Rescued Dog
Website: TheRescuedDog.org
Phone: (619) 356-3390

Rex is a diamond in the "ruff". This handsome Chocolate Lab was purchased as a puppy, and shortly thereafter thrown into the backyard after the family found they were allergic to him. He languished alone...no walks, no playtime. And when he developed terrible ear infections, they posed him on a website for free pets. Thankfully, someone spotted the ad, and asked The Rescued Dog to take him before he fell into the wrong hands. Rex is now safe, healthy and happy with a foster family, and learning about the world for the first time. He picked up basic commands remarkably fast, loves to play fetch and true to his breed, loves playing in the water. Just turning on the hose makes him happy! The foster has taught him to sleep in a crate at night, and he's already housebroken. They're also working on his leash manners. Despite his neglect, Rex is friendly with people, other dogs and children. He's just 1.5 years old and a sucker for treats and love, so training will be fun and rewarding. Please, fill out an app at TheRescuedDog.org to meet with this gorgeous Labrador Retriever.

JJClick on JJ's picture to see his video on KUSI GOOD MORNING SAN DIEGO!


Name:
JJ
Breed: Shepherd mix
Age: 3.5 years old
Sex: Neutered Male
Organization: Animal Rescuers Without Borders
Phone: (619) 977-3593
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!

Phone:(619) 691-5174
Email: lsepton@chulavistaca.gov
Website: ChulaVistaCA.gov/departments/animal-care

Stella is an active, playful spayed 2-year-old, blue and white Pit Bull Terrier. She weighs 64-pounds and was brought to the shelter as a stray in January. She'd enjoy a family who'd take her on long walks and then let her settle down with the family after a game of fetch. Stella loves her tennis balls. She'd do best in a home with kids 10-years and above, due to her play style. She gets along with most dogs, but not cats. She's treat motivated and enjoys a good body massage.

Age: 3 years old
Sex: Neutered Male
Organization: Greyhound Adoption Center, 4821 Dehesa Rd in El Cajon
Phone: (877) HOUNDSAVERS (877-478-8364)
Web: HoundSavers.org

Max arrived from a racetrack in February with eight other Greyhounds. Max can't live with a cat, but he is dog friendly. He's an all-around good guy...happy, playful and will make a wonderful companion for an active family with children of all ages. Before putting the dogs up for adoption, the Center does a complete medical and temperament evaluation, they alter, vaccinate, microchip and clean the teeth of all their greyhounds. They're also tested with cats, small dogs and young children. Please come out and meet Max and 45 other adoptable dogs this Sunday at the Greyhound Adoption Center's Open House. Tour their facility on Dehesa Rd in El Cajon from 1-to-3 PM and learn more about greyhound rescue, rehab, adoption and volunteer opportunities. Call 877-HoundSavers, or visit HoundSavers.org.

Name:
Brady
Breed: Great Pyrenees/Anatolian mix
Age: 2 years old
Sex: Neutered Male
Organization: Great Pyrenees Association of Southern CA
Phone: (949) 244-1000
Website: GreatPyrRescue.org

Is he a Great Pyrenees, an Anatolian Shepherd, or a Lab? Who knows....but what we can say FOR SURE is that Brady is a super sweet family dog who loves affection. He gets along great with other dogs, and even tolerates cats. Brady is a playful 2-year-old, and would make an excellent companion for someone who enjoys running or hiking. He's initially a bit shy but warms up quickly. His foster family says he does well on a leash, is mindful, well-behaved, and enjoys accompanying them for an afternoon lunch. He has good house manners and stays off of the furniture, too. Brady is completely housebroken, and not a big barker. So if having a dog with a great disposition is more important to you than the breed, Brady is your boy. Please fill out an adoption application at GreatPyrRescue.org or call Kristen at (949) 244-1000 with any questions. And I'd be remiss if I didn't say that this group is desperate for local foster homes, so if you love gentle giants, please offer your support.

Name
: Sky
Breed: German Shepherd/Labrador
Age: 6 years old
Sex: Neutered Male
Organization: The Rescued Dog
Phone: (619) 356-3390
Website: TheRescuedDog.org

Sky was adopted from a shelter when he was a 2-month-old puppy, and was just returned, 6 years later, due to a family member with allergies. This 78-pound gentle giant has quite a number of commands under his belt. He's pretty good on a leash and totally housebroken. His foster family is teaching him to sleep in his crate at night. They say his best quality is that he doesn't let other dogs, doorbells, noises or other things excite him. He's calm, relaxed, playful, and loving. He's used to morning and evening walks, and he'd like to keep up that routine in a new home. Since being with The Rescued Dog, he's had a few aches and pains, so they put him on a medication and low-impact exercise regimen, which seems to be working great for Sky. He eats twice a day and he's very treat motivated! Sky deserves to be placed into a loving and true forever family.

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

Name:
Lilly
Breed: Maltipoo (Maltese/Poodle)
Age: 2 years old
Sex: Spayed Female
Organization: Animal Rescuers Without Borders
Phone: (619) 977-3593
Web: ARWOB.org

This "designer dog" was found in the streets of Tecate with a very long, matted coat, practically unrecognizable as a Maltipoo. Animal Rescuers Without Borders had to shave her down, so while she may look like a naked poodle now, when her hair grows out, she's going to be beautiful. She's a very loving girl and a great family dog, as she's good with kids, dogs and cats. She's crate trained, and almost house-trained. Lilly is good in the car and on the leash. She may only weigh 13-pounds, but when she decides to make some noise, she's got a surprisingly big, deep bark. She's fun, but mellow, and even if you're not ready to adopt, she's in need of a foster home until she finds a forever home. All food and supplies are provided to fosters.

Email: lsepton@chulavistaca.gov
Website: ChulaVistaCA.gov/Services/AnimalCare

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

MasieClick on Masie's picture to see her video on KUSI GOOD MORNING SAN DIEGO!

Breed: Min Pin (Miniature Pinscher)
Age: 8 years old
Sex: Spayed Female
Organization: Scratch My Belly Rescue
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.

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

Pirate is a shy, friendly German Shepherd/Cattle dog who has been available for adoption since January.. He's a bit on the thin side, but as he gets more comfortable with his surroundings he'll put on more weight. He just needs a little bit of time to get to trust new people. Pirate is in training knows his basic commands. He loves being petted and brushed. Pirate's foster family says he's very good about not getting up on the furniture, and he's a submissive and respectful dog. He currently lives with a female German Shepherd and a Yorkie. He barks at cats, and we don't know his history with children. But he does play gently and walk nicely on a leash. Pirate is crate-trained, but also sleeps quietly with his foster siblings. He can sometimes be a bit of a nervous-Nelly, and would do best with another confident dog who likes to play. Contact Coastal German Shepherd Rescue for an adoption application, or to find out about volunteering or fostering.

ZappoClick on Zappo's photo to see his video on San Diego 6-CW Animal House!


Name:
Zappo
Breed: Jack Russell Terrier/Chihuahua
Age: 7-years-old
Sex: Neutered Male
Organization: Scratch My Belly
Phone: (858) 344-2423
Website: Scratchmybelly.org

Zappo was described to me as very sweet, playful, affectionate, loving and devoted. He's a real charmer. He does wonderfully with all people, including children, and he also loves dogs. He was a volunteer and staff favorite before being pulled out of the shelter and put into a foster home. Now, Zappo enjoys going to the beach and playing with all his buddies, chasing the ball, and he has the curiosity of a Jack Russell terrier. He gets a little anxious when his person leaves him, but he's never destructive. And fortunately, he is crate trained, so that helps with any anxiety. Zappo is being trained to be a good indoor dog and his foster family reports his manners have improved a great deal since being pulled out of the shelter. Of course, he's neutered, microchipped, vaccinated and fully vetted! If you'd like to meet Zappo, or find out about volunteering or fostering another dog, please contact Scratch My Belly Rescue at Scratchmybelly.org. You can also call (858) 344-2423 to speak to the director of their program.

Breed: German Shepherd

Sex: Neutered Male
Organization: California Labradors, Retrievers, and More Rescue
Phone: (858) 273-5386 (voicemail only)
Website: http://www.labsandmore.org/

Niko is a sweet, loving, gorgeous German Shepherd with lots of happy energy, and ready for adventure! He'd do well with a family who can give him plenty of playtime and exercise. 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.

Just look at the incredibly expressive face on this 1.5 year old Shih Tzu. Once you get to know her sweet personality you'll see why they named her Macaroon! She's got a lot of fun energy, but she's also a great snuggler. Macaroon loves to play fetch with her ball, and enjoys long walks. Her foster family reports that she even goes on multi-mile hikes, so don't let her small frame and fluffiness fool you--this girl is sporty! When the action is over, Macaroon is ready for some cuddling. Belly rubs are her favorite thing. She's house trained, crate trained, and does will with all people, including children. She just needs a little help learning how to socialize with other dogs in public and when she's meeting them for the first time on a leash. Macaroon is just 1.5 years old and 12-pounds,full grown, Fill out an adoption application at TheRescuedDog.org.

Email: lsepton@chulavistaca.gov
Website: ChulaVistaca.gov/departments/animal-care

Ari is an active, playful, 2-year-old spayed female Pit Bull Terrier mix. She weighs 58-pounds and was originally found as a stray before she was brought to the Chula Vista shelter in December of last year. She'd thoroughly enjoy the activity of long walks, and she'd make an excellent running partner. She'll also settle down with a nice chew toy after a nap, when at home. 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. She's treat motivated and knows sit. The Chula Vista Animal Care Facility is celebrating "St. Pitty's Lucky Charms" for the few remaining days in March for all Pitty and Pitty mix adoptions. So Ari's adoption fee is just $25 and that includes her spay, microchip, deworming and vaccinations. For more info call the adoption counselor at 619-691-5174 or email lsepton@chulavistaca.gov.

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

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

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.

Website: GreatPyrRescue.org

Georgia is a 12-week-old female Great Pyrenees puppy needing an experienced adopter. She was purchased from a pet store after the salesperson said she'd do fine in a condo because Pyrs are a lazy breed. After only two weeks, they realized a condo was not the right fit for such an energetic young Pyr who was taken from her mom at a much too early age. They called the Great Pyrenees Association Of Southern California for help, knowing that a breed-specific rescue would know how to screen for the right home for this feisty, yet adorable. pup. Georgia will do best with a family that has lots of time, and experience raising this strong-willed breed. She'd do well with an older dog as a good role model. A secure fenced yard is a must. If you're interested in adopting a Pyrenees, but an energetic puppy isn't the right fit for you, there are many other Pyrs who have their puppy days behind them. Go to GreatPyrRescue.org for an application or to check out other dogs for adoption. They are also desperate for temporary fosters here in the San Diego Area.

We'll never know exactly what Cosmo's breed is, but the best guess is Spaniel/Doxie/Chihuahua. Whatever his forever family decides to call him, he's a lucky, loving, and faithful companion. Cosmo has been well socialized with loads of adults and kids, and he's great in the car and on leash. When he's not snuggling, Cosmo is rambunctious, feisty, outgoing and fun.

Rudy is a 3-year-old, 50-pound sweetheart, listed at the shelter as a Terrier-Basset Hound mix...probably because of his adorable stumpy legs, and the coloring of a Staffordshire Terrier. Rudy is a pretty solid boy and an all-around great guy. He listens well, is good in the car, likes everyone he's ever met, and has a good medium energy level. He's not reactive to dogs on walks or through fences...in fact, he rarely even barks! Rudy loves playing with toys and will entertain himself. He's equally happy going for a long jog, or snuggling in front of the TV. We could really go on and on about how great he is because he's in a foster home, and the fosters really get to know the dogs while they're in their homes. If you'd like to meet Rudy, please fill out a short application at DOGSFURDAYS.org! His $200 adoption fee includes up-to-date vaccinations, a County dog-license, microchip, neutering, plus a collar, and leash.

Sapphire As featured on San Diego 6-CW animal house! (Click here to see Sapphire's video debut)

Name
: Sapphire
Breed: Golden Retriever
Age: 4 years old
Sex: Spayed Female
Organization: The Rescued Dog
Website:The Rescued Dog
Phone: (619) 356-3390

Sapphire is a true gem. A group called The Rescued Dog, pulled Sapphire out of the Humane Society of Imperial County. She had some tumors in her mammary glands which they believed were cancerous. They were all removed, and the veterinarians don't think she'll need further treatment. Sapphire is an adorable, sweet, petite, 46-pound, Golden Retriever. She's smart, and already has many tricks under her belt, including sit, come, down, and shake. Sapphire is about 4 years old, and anyone with a Golden can tell you, that's the ideal age for this breed, which tends to remain puppy-like for many years. Sapphire is very social, and loves meeting new dog friends on her walks, at the dog park, and at adoption events. But she'd do best as an only dog, because she prefers only to be with people once she gets home. Sapphire's foster mom reports that she's a terrific companion! If you'd like to meet Sapphire, please fill out an application at TheRescuedDog.org to schedule a no-pressure meet and greet.

Pupdate: Some adoption choices are difficult and others seem like destiny. Sapphire's adoption was certainly meant to be. She was featured last week....the one who had surgery to remove mammary cancer. With a cancer history, finding Sapphire a home would be tough.

Luna Click on Luna's picture to see her video on San Diego 6-CW animal house!

Name:
Luna (A137442)
Breed: German Shepherd mix
Age: 6 years old
Sex: Spayed female
Organization: Chula Vista Animal Care Facility, 130 Beyer Way in Chula Vista
Phone: (619) 691-5174
Email: lsepton@chulavistaca.gov

Luna is a gentle and lady-like 6-year-old German Shepherd mix. She currently weighs 47-pounds, and was originally found as a stray and brought in to the shelter. She'd thoroughly enjoy the activity of long daily walks or trips to the dog park before settling down for a calm evening at home. She can often be found in the shelter's front office, perched on her bed and supervising the daily activity. She seems to prefer people to toys, but did briefly enjoy a stuffed squeaky toy before giving it back nicely. Luna would do best in a home with children who are at least 10 years of age, just because of her size and the fact that they don't know if she's ever lived with children. She knows some basic commands, like sit and down. Her adoption fee is a mere $75 and includes her spay, microchip, deworming and vaccinations. For more information call the adoption counselor, Linda, at 619-691-5174 or email lsepton@chulavistaca.gov. The Chula Vista Animal Shelter is located on Beyer Way, just off Main Street in Chula Vista.

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

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

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.

E-Mail: operationgreyhound@cox.net
Phone: (619) 588-6611


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

Klaus As featured on San Diego 6-CW animal house (and click here to see Klaus' picture video on KUSI GOOD MORNING SAN DIEGO!)

Klaus
Breed: Cocker Spaniel mix
Age: 7 years
Sex: Neutered Male
Organization: Animal Rescuers Without Borders
Phone: (619) 977-3593
Web: ARWOB.org

Klaus came in to the Animal Shelter in Bonita a couple months ago. He had a microchip, and his family was contacted, but sadly, they never came to pick him up, so he was eventually put up for adoption. At 7 years of age, with all the other adorable, young dogs at the shelter, there was just too much competition, and Klaus was overlooked. So Animal Rescuers Without Borders came to the rescue, pulled him from the shelter, and placed him in a foster home. His foster family quickly realized that he's very loving, and full of life! He runs and walks like a young puppy. He's good with dogs and cats, and his foster family even transformed him from a neglected outdoor dog, to a well-behaved indoor dog, which will be a huge plus for his future family. He's crate trained, loves car rides, his tennis ball, and playing fetch. He doesn't bark much, either. He hasn't been around children, so a family with kids 12-years or older would be ideal. Go to ARWOB.org to fill out an adoption application or learn about becoming a foster family, volunteer.

She loves to be pet and snuggled and is a wonderful companion. She loves car rides. She can keep up with a jogger (and has learned to run alongside a bicycle), or is happy just going for a stroll.

Her foster family thinks the perfect family for her would be one that can give her lots of love and attention. She gets sad when left by herself, so she would love to live with a family who is home a lot and will take her places.

You can read more about Maddie, and submit an adoption application, at www.pbrsd.org. Check the events page for upcoming adoption event dates so you can come out to meet her in person.

Fiona is a mixed breed, approximately 3-4 years old, residing at the Greyhound Adoption Center in El Cajon.

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.

Allowing an animal to suffer is something most of us will never understand...Looney was part of a confiscation case at one of our local shelters. Her owners let her suffer with a prolapsed uterus for days. In excruciating pain, bleeding, and near death, she was relinquished to the shelter and underwent urgent surgery. Then she sat, and sat, and sat at the shelter where nobody noticed her. Finally, when she was placed on the euthanasia list, Labradors And Friends rescue stepped up to save her. Looney is a 5-year-old lab/pittie mix, and she's 50-pounds and pure love. She is completely healthy now and really needs a foster or better yet, a forever home to show her love. She's very affectionate, sweet, happy and easy going. She's house trained, good with other dogs, well mannered and loves car rides...a true gem.

Boston's Website: Labradorsandfriends.org/boston

Boston is a sweet, loving Weimaraner mix who is much more easy-going than your typica �Weimaraner. At some point Boston started guarding his food and bones, making it difficult for him to be in a home. But Labradors and Friends Dog Rescue put him through extensive training, and now Boston knows his boundaries, and doesn't feel the need to guard his food. He understands now that his people will provide more. Boston is great on a leash and knows sit, down, stay, heel, and come. He needs an experienced owner to provide structure, leadership, and training. He's house-trained, good in a kennel, and would be happiest as an only-dog, though it's not mandatory. He's a couch potato, but also likes hiking and running, as long as he's by your side. Check out his profile at Labradorsandfriends.org/boston.

Ginny is a sweet goofy girl who found herself at a shelter, on borrowed time. When they saw her video, Labradors And Friends couldn't resist saving her! Ginny is a happy, active girl who loves her toys and playing fetch! You will NEVER find her without one of her toys in her mouth...she carries them everywhere. She'd love an active outdoor family, and with her energy, a jogger would be nice. Ginny is great with kids, house trained, crate trained, knows sit, down, leave it, and more. She needs a little work on the leash, but she's a fast learner. Ginny lives with six cats who have grown to like her. She'll try to get them to play, but if they're not interested, she leaves them alone. Ginny's foster family also fosters young kittens and Ginny appears to sense the kittens are young and fragile, so she's very gentle with them. Ginny is super affectionate and would love to be a lap-dog who can sneak in kisses when you least expect it.

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

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

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

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

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!

So Bonnie was left behind, and now we hope someone out there will give her a chance to be part of their family. She's a pretty mellow girl who knows how to use a doggie door and loves belly rubs., She had a full dental cleaning so she feels great and is ready for the good life with someone who wants a sturdy yet smaller girl.

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!

Breed: German Shepherd
Age: 4 years old
Sex: Spayed Female
Organization: Coastal German Shepherd Rescue San Diego
Phone: (858) 779-9149
Website: http://www.coastalgsrsd.org/


Beebee is a low to medium energy dog who loves to hang out with her people and to go on walks. She's interested in knowing what's going on at all times and loves to be brushed, groomed and have her head scratched and ears rubbed. She has the eyes that the German Shepherd breed is known for. Beebee was turned in to the shelter by owners who had allowed her to become obese to the point where she could barely walk and had developed hip dysplasia. Her only chance of ever walking again was surgery on both hips, followed by rehab using an underwater treadmill and laser therapy.. She's lost 40 pounds, enjoys walking, and will soon have surgery on her other hip. Beebee's ideal family would be someone who will continue to help her get into shape. And if you like to sit and watch movies, Beebee would love to be there by your side. She's not good with small dogs and animals, and is a bit selective with large dogs, so she'd be best as the only family pet.

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.

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.
