Baxter
Baxter will be on San Diego 6-CW Animal House this Thursday, October 2, 2014! Stay Tuned!

Name: Baxter (ID# 153211)
Breed: Terrier mix
Age: 2 years old
Sex: Neutered Male
Organization: SDHS, Escondido Campus, 3450 E. Valley Pkwy, Escondido
Phone: (760) 888-2275 (BARK)
Website: www.sdhumane.org


Baxter is a young 10-pound Terrier who is passionate about retrieving balls and collecting toys. He'll keep retrieving a tennis ball for as long as you'll throw it, and he loves his toys. So much so that he's not very good about sharing. So, while he's good with other dogs, he does need to be supervised if toys and food are around. He's just 2-years-old, and a great lap-size for an apartment, condo or small home. He's an excellent travel companion, as well. Baxter is located at the San Diego Humane Society, Escondido Campus at 3450 E. Valley Parkway, in Escondido. They're open every single day from 10 AM to 5 PM, and Baxter's adoption fee is only $95, including his neuter, microchip, vaccinations and a vet exam!

Woody is a very handsome boy who looks like he could be a mini Irish Setter/Spaniel Mix, with a deep chocolate short-medium coat and caramel eyes! Woody is currently working on his obedience - he almost has "sit" mastered - as well as walking nicely on a leash. He gets along great with dogs of all sizes and is house trained & crate trained. Woody has soft coat, whispy ears, and long legs - this boy can jump and pays close attention to his human - he would likely excel in agility training and would have a wonderful time doing it. Woody's a little insecure around men, but with a little patience he warms up to everyone he meets. His foster mom has nothing but great things to say about him - he's loyal, always wants to please, and is a quick learner.

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

Name: Oakley
Breed: Queensland Heeler
Age: 5 month old puppy
Sex: Spayed Female
Organization: Aussies & Others Dog Rescue
Phone: (619) 469-3748


Oakley is a Queensland Heeler puppy at just 5 months old. She weighs 20 pounds now, and we expect she'll reach about 40-45 pounds full-grown...just barely enough to make the weight requirement to attend the BIG DOGS ROCK Adoption Event this Saturday when we'll be featuring 130 large breed dogs for adoption on Fiesta Island! Oakley will be at the Aussie Rescue booth. She was relinquished by her owner because he didn't have time for her or her brother anymore. She's doing great with her housetraining lessons and is a very playful, happy puppy, but because she didn't get out much in public before, she's a little fearful of new situations and will need someone to continue to socialize her. But she's made great progress in the short time she's been in her foster home. Because of her breed, she's very smart and learns quickly. She's good with kids and will make a great addition to any home. Call now to get pre-qualified to adopt her at this weekend's event. You don't have to wait until Saturday!

Name: Queenie
Breed: Labrador/Plott Hound mix
Age: 2 years old
Sex: Spayed Female
Organization: Labradors And Friends
Phone: (619) 990-7455


This magnificent young Labrador/Plott Hound mix was rescued from a shelter with just moments to spare! A shelter and volunteer favorite, she had been there for many weeks and was simply out of time. Thank doG for foster families who make it possible for rescue agencies to pull these dogs out and give them more time. Queenie is a total love-bug. Her foster mom reports that she loves giving kisses and playing with her ball and squeaky toys. She is an excellent retriever. She loves all people, but will grab a ball out of your hand, so older kids might be better suited than an equally ball-loving toddler. She's great with other dogs, crate trained, knows her basic commands, she's eager to please and always happy. She loves to snuggle and weighs 49-pounds. Queenie will be at the BIG DOGS ROCK Adoption Event on Fiesta Island this Saturday, but you can e-mail dogs@LabradorsAndFriends.org, fill out an application online at LabradorsAndFriends.org, or call (619) 990-7455 right now to get a jump on the adoption process!.

Luka was rescued from a very high-kill shelter. He was full of parasites, fleas and tics, and very malnourished. Luckily, someone stepped up to be a foster family, and he was able to be saved. He's received medical care, all his vaccinations and he's finally starting to gain some much needed weight. He's at about 20 pounds now, and we expect he'll reach 50-60 pounds full-grown. He is a joyful puppy who absolutely adores playing with and collecting toys. He is great with other dogs, cats and children. He's very well-socialized, he's crate trained, and learning to be an indoor dog. Of course, being just 4 months old means he'll still need some guidance to bring him to his full potential. He'll be available at the Big Dogs Rock Adoption event this Saturday on Fiesta Island, but you don't have to wait until then to fill out an adoption application. Go to http://www.arwob.org/animals/detail?AnimalID=7574587 right now and get a jump on the adoption process! If you get pre approved today, you just may be able to take him home on Saturday!

The 6th Annual BIG DOGS ROCK Adoption Event
Saturday, September 27, 2014,
11 a.m. to 3 p.m.
Fiesta Island…across from Fenced Off-Leash Beach near the OTL area.

When it comes to dogs….SIZE MATTERS! If you love big dogs, join us on Fiesta Island for a very special adoption event featuring BIG DOGS ONLY (large breeds), and puppies that will eventually be big dogs! Summer travel is over, kids are back to school, more time is spent at home....this is the PERFECT time to add a dog to your family! This ANNUAL event brings together dozens of San Diego's finest non-profit rescue agencies and shelters, featuring 100+ large breed dogs all in one place!

The Big Dogs Rock Adoption Event was designed to make the adoption process easier for people who prefer large breeds, bringing them to just one HAPPY place where they can find their perfect pet among hundreds of big dogs. It's become one of the largest, most popular annual adoption events in San Diego, held on the world famous, pet-friendly, Fiesta Island. Dog lovers can also come out and learn how to become a temporary foster guardian for one of a dozen respected, long-standing organizations. Foster families prevent dogs from being killed in shelters.

Rescue agencies and shelters provide all food and medical care while the dogs are in foster homes, so it costs the foster guardian nothing to save a life.

Potential foster families will get a chance to meet and interview representatives from dozens of local agencies to find the best fit. Adoption fees vary by organization, but admission is FREE. Booth space if provided free to the rescues and shelters in the SDASF network.

Sheldon is a 2.5 year old, ex-racing greyhound who arrived at the Greyhound Adoption Center with a fractured leg in January. The injury didn't require surgery and healed with the use of splints and many weeks of bed rest; however, it was a lengthy, tedious, and painful recovery requiring numerous trips to the vet for splint changes and check-ups. Sheldon was an excellent patient during rehab, and has now been medically released for adoption. He loves all dogs and children, but won't be good with cats. He's active, playful, and silly, and will bring a lot of joy and laughter into his new home! The Greyhound Adoption Center is hosting an Open House and tour on Sunday the 21st from 1 - 3 PM at 4821 Dehesa Road in El Cajon. It's an opportunity to learn about greyhound rescue, rehab, adoption and volunteering. Private kennel tours may be arranged by calling the toll free number at 877-478-8364 or visit HoundSavers.org.

Phone: (858) 274-2940
Website: www.HollysGarden.com


Brandy is a 3-year-old female Min Pin mix. Holly's Garden Rescue pulled her out of a shelter after one of their volunteers noticed that there was an adorable little dog with the most beautiful eyes hiding under her shelter bed. She had been there for 6-months. When they pulled Brandy from the shelter, she came out of her kennel, wagging her tail and giving cautious kisses....and since that day, she has been one of the most appreciative little girls they have ever rescued. No wonder she was a shelter staff favorite from he day she arrived, but no potential adopters ever saw past her insecurities in the shelter. She's called Ballerina Brandy because she dances for treats, when you come home, or any time she's happy. She loves toys, car rides and walking on a leash. She loves being held like a baby, too. She's great with children and other dogs. We'll never know about her past, but we're certain her future is bright! Call Holly's Garden or visit www.HollysGarden.com .

Ruffles was left at the shelter with his sister and lifetime companion, Pebbles. Fortunately, The Rescued Dog found a foster home for the two and was able to pull them from the shelter.

Meanwhile, his sister Pebbles is the dream couch companion, snuggly and very food motivated. These two charmers are so bonded that the rescue organization can't bear to split them up. So, they're hoping for a retirement home together. Between the two of them, they will fulfill every dog owners dream: one mellow couch potato, and one playful boy who thinks he's a puppy, and both have the maturity to be well behaved in the house. Contact TheRescuedDog.org for more information. FYI, they're also having a fundraiser and fitness morning this Saturday at Spanish Landing from 9 a.m. to noon.

Chihuahua Mix
Age:
10 weeks
Sex:
Spayed Females, Neutered Male
Organization:
TheRescuedDog.org
Phone:
(619) 356-3390


These puppies were less than 2 weeks old when their previous owner surrendered them to San Bernardino Animal Control, along with their mother, Hero. For the past 8 weeks, the Hero family has been well socialized with people, especially kids. The neighborhood kids come over daily to visit and play with the puppies. At 10 weeks, the pups range between 2-5 lbs and we expect these chihuahua/beagle mixes to end up at no more than 20lbs, the perfect size for any home! Momma Hero is smart, playful. and very friendly, giving these pups a great role model as they grow. While each pup has it's own distinct personality, the whole litter is curious, friendly, sweet and ADORABLE! All puppies are spayed or neutered, up to date on vaccinations, and microchipped.

Viola has some of the best markings we have ever seen on a pup, with her white toes and white ring on her snout! She's the most active and adventurous out of the litter. Viola is always on the go! We would love to see her go to a home with another dog to play with, as her favorite activity is wrestling, tumbling, and running with her siblings.

Sweet Orlando is the smallest male of the litter. He tends to be a mama's boy, very sweet temperament, and easy going. When Orlando isn't running around with his siblings, he wants to be in your lap, cuddling. Orlando is one of the sweetest puppies we have ever met.

Beatrice is one unique girl with her brindle coat, adorable head shape, and light green eyes, an all around show stopper! Beatrice is smart, fearless, and has been the first puppy to do everything. Beatrice was the first to transition to puppy food, play with toys, adventure outside on her own, etc. Bea, isn't afraid to wrestle with her brothers or get dirty. This little tom girl also has a sweet side to round out her character.

He's housebroken & crate trained, and knows his basic commands. He's good with other dogs and even goes to doggie day care, but he does resource guard his food, which means if you have another dog, you'll probably want to feed them separately, but he's great with all people, including kids. His foster says he does need some work with the leash. Contact California Labs and More Rescue at 858-273-5386, or www.LabsAndMore.org, and if he's not adopted before then, he'll be at the #BIGDOGSROCK adoption event on Fiesta Island on Saturday, September 27th.

Dennis is a happy, friendly five year old ex-racing greyhound residing at the Greyhound Adoption Center. He arrived from the Caliente racetrack in Mexico in November with a fractured rear leg. Fortunately, he didn't require surgical intervention and the vet was able to get the break to heal with the use of splints and several weeks of bed rest. Even without surgery, his recovery was lengthy, tedious, and painful. Dennis was an excellent patient during his rehabilitation process and has been medically released for adoption for some time now. Dennis cannot live in a home with cats but he does well with small dogs and would enjoy an active family with older children. There are currently fifty dogs residing at the Greyhound Adoption Center. Thirteen of those dogs are in various stages of recovery from broken limbs, many of whom required costly surgery.

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.

The Greyhound Adoption Center hosts an Open House and tour of their facility on the third Sunday of each month from 1 - 3 pm. The next event is on September 21. The address is 4821 Dehesa Road in El Cajon. This is a great opportunity to visit with GAC volunteers and learn more about greyhound rescue, rehabilitation, adoption, and volunteer opportunities. In addition, private kennel tours may be arranged by calling the toll free number. For more information call toll free at 1-877-478-8364, visit the website at www.houndsavers.org, or like them on Facebook!

Names: Gladys and Gladiola
Breed: Labrador Retriever
Age: 8 years old/ 6 years old
Sex: Spayed Female
Organization: California Labradors & More
Phone: (858) 273-5386

Gladys & Gladiola are a mother/daughter duo for adoption. Their loving owner passed away, and her family members took the girls to a shelter where they were terrified and confused. Fortunately, Labs And More Rescued pulled them from the shelter, but they still need a foster home if there are any volunteers out there listening! They're 8 and 6-years-old, respectively, and can be separated and adopted into different homes, if necessary. Gladys is super sweet and well behaved. She loves to snuggle and position herself for a good belly-rub and especially loves the company of male dogs. Meanwhile, Gladiola is very fun-loving and loves to play fetch and go for a run. They both sleep nicely on their beds at night, they know how to use a doggie door, and love to ride in the car. They are already well-socialized, housetrained, family-friendly dogs. Meet Gladys and Gladiola at a Labradors & More weekend adoption event, or by appointment. They will also be attending the#BIGDOGSROCK adoption event on Fiesta Island on September 27th. Go to LabsandMore.org for more information about adopting or fostering one or both of these loving, affectionate dogs.

Darla was likely a huge money maker by being breed too often by her original owner who then gave her away. Her new family would drop her off at Doggy Day care because she suffers from separation anxiety, for which she takes Puppy Prozac. When the Doggie Day care facility learned that Darla had been dropped off at a shelter when her family moved, they decided to take her in. For almost a year, Darla has been their "Assistant Office Manager" happily greeting people at the front desk. However, this poor girl Is tired of seeing all her friends go home at night with their families while she is left behind. We hope to find an adopter who Is not afraid of her breed or her behavioral needs...Darla does take Puppy Prozac for separation anxiety and it will be provided to the new adopters. Ideally, a retired person, someone who works from home, or someone looking for an emotional support dog would be the best fit. Darla enjoys walks, but she is strong. She's mellow and low energy and would be fine with a yard to play in...she is completely housebroken. She's fine with other large dogs, but small, yappy, high energy dogs are not her favorite thing. Darla comes with a lifetime of free boarding...so the new family can leave her for a few days when family goes out of town. That's a PRICELESS offer!!!

El Cajon Animal Shelter, 1275 N. Marshall Street
Phone: (619) 441-1580 or (619) 579-3375 

Molly came into the El Cajon Animal Shelter as a stray, with a littler of newborn kittens. Of course, the babies have all been adopted, but Molly still waits for someone to love. She's just 3-years-old, and very playful and friendly. She's perfectly litter-box-trained, as well. Unfortunately, adoption rates for black animals are very low. Part of that is because it's quite hard to market them, as they don't show up well in print or television adopt-a-pet segments, because it's hard to capture they're beautiful faces on camera. Hopefully we'll get some good lighting at Channel 6 tomorrow, and someone will see her and fall in love. Her adoption fee is only $80, and she's now spayed, vaccinated and microchipped. Molly is waiting in cage 133 at the El Cajon Animal Shelter, 1275 N. Marshall Street in El Cajon, open Tuesday through Saturday.

Website:

Frances is a Moluccan Cockatoo who became part of the PEAC foster flock in 2012 when his previous owners surrendered him saying he had a screaming problem. When the foster first took him in, Frances would not allow anyone to handle him, and he had a lot of phobic behaviors, probably because he had been completely cage-bound and isolated in a back room in his previous home. Frances has improved greatly, and has learned to play with and destroy many types of toys, but he's still working on "stepping up", and prefers to be in the company of other parrots, as he's more at ease in a flock environment. He still screams in the morning and at night, and will require someone who has a great deal of Cockatoo experience, but in the right environment, he's going to make someone a wonderful companion. Contact PEAC at the number above.

Phone:

Website:

Malloy was surrendered to PEAC after his second owner realized the amount of time and energy a large Macaw takes. At 2 years of age, he had to learn to eat a healthy diet of solid foods, and not the formula he craved. He's still considered a baby Macaw at his young age, and he's very "beaky" and needs someone who can be stern but loving, to encourage Malloy to become an enjoyable companion. Due to his large size, he requires a very large cage and a large play area such as a big Manzanita tree gym. Malloy can chew through 4-6 wood toys a day, and if left without toys, he'll find something else to chew on. He's an expert escape artist and needs a cage with a padlock on the door, or he'll get right out. He can even wiggle his food and water bowls out of place to climb though the slots and get outside the cage. All this aside, he's as warm and joyful as he is smart. He just needs a person or family who has a lot of time to give him outside of the cage. He also requires 10-12 hours of covered sleep, or he gets grouchy. It's a big responsibility to have a magnificent bird like this, but in the end, with proper training, Malloy will make someone very happy.

He loves to run and play with his toys and he gets along well with other cats and the resident dog in his foster home. How great is it that a foster family has already experienced all there is to know about Remy, so that there will be no surprises for the new adopters!

Marvin is a 2 year old, blue and white American Staffordshire/ Pit bull mix who was hit by a car and taken to a shelter. Physically he’s recovered from his surgery, but the accident left him with psychological scars that make him leery of vehicle noises and general street noises. With the help of his foster mom, over the last few weeks Marvin has overcome most of his fears and is now enjoying a daily walk of at least three miles. He’s occasionally haunted by noises coming from behind him and prefers walking on the side of the street where he can see traffic coming at him. He also pants more than normal on his walks. He recognizes the terrain, and becomes very motivated to get back on the home-stretch. Marvin is a very friendly dog, but needs time to warm up to people. Once he knows you, Marvin becomes a very friendly, playful, loyal dog. He'll follow people around and loves attention, but can be mouthy. Marvin gets along very well with other animals. He currently lives with four other pit bulls, a cat, and a turtle. He plays hard with other dogs and is very active at home. He's also good with children. Marvin knows his basic obedience commands. He respects other dogs’ food bowl and does not compete for food. He is crate trained and housebroken.

Raleigh was rescued at just 4 months of age, and adopted to a woman who just returned him as she's moving to New York City, into a tiny apartment. It may be for the best, as she worked 8-to-9 hours a day, and Raleigh was cooped up inside a crate all that time, with only weekend outings to the dog park, beaches and hikes. Since he's an Aussie mix, a dog like this really needs more activity and socialization. The good news is he's spectacularly housetrained and great in the car. He's good off-leash with other dogs, but not okay with cats. Because he spent most his time alone or with a single female, he's still a little unsure when he meets men, especially when they're wearing baseball hats....but this is a fear that can be overcome with proper socialization. He's a lover, and an ideal adopter would be willing to take him to obedience or agility classes. Call or text Animal Rescuers Without Borders today, or go ARWOB.org

I have learned that the couch is absolutely the best form of heaven! I currently live with a 1.5 year old pittie mix who thinks I'm his momma. I can be selective about my canine friends but if I love them then we are BFFs. I don't live with any kids, but my foster parent thinks I would be wonderful with little ones of all ages. I'm very calm around people, I don't jump, and I take food very slowly and gently. People tell me that I'm more adoptable if I know things. So far I've learned my name, sit, lay down, roll over, and go to bed. I'm crate trained and 100% potty trained! Call or visit www.pbrsd.org to schedule a time when we can meet.

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.

A family moved out of town, and left their unspayed cat behind to fend for herself. After having several litters of kittens, that sweet cat and her latest litter were rescued by a neighbor. So, Leon and his two sisters grew up in foster care, and the entire family is now ready for adoption. Leon is an affectionate boy. His purr can be heard from across a room, and since he's such a happy kitten, he fires it up at a moment’s notice. He just loves to be held and cuddled, or to sprawl out next to you on the couch. Leon likes toys he can pick up and play or wrestle with. He's a busy kitten with a play-sleep-play-sleep routine. Meet Leon at the Rescue House Cat & Kitten Adoption Fair this Saturday & Sunday, the 17th and 18th, from 10 AM to 4 PM at the Carmel Mountain PETCO on Rancho Carmel Drive.

For women only, SUGAR is a Male, Citron Crested Cockatoo. He's 15 years old, and, like many 'toos, he loves to be the center of attention and join in flock/family activities. Sugar came from a home that was not prepared to handle the personality of a ‘too and thus he developed some not so nice habits which we have been working on resolving through positive reinforcement training. He's in absolutely gorgeous feather in spite of a sub-optimal diet prior to entering our foster program. He currently is on a pelleted diet that is supplemented with lots of fresh vegetables and fruit to provide some variety for him to enjoy. Though he loves men he tends to become over stimulated when being handled by them and when not the center of attention from any individual man he will begin to scream and act out. With that said we feel he would be best suited in a home with only women, as his screaming has been very difficult to train out of him as his connection to men is extremely strong. He speaks appropriately and is adapting well to life with his new flock.

Ruby is a loving, friendly, 4-year-old Pittie with a beautiful red coat. She loves going on walks and chasing after her toys, and of course, she'll never turn down a good belly rub. Because of her size, she needs a home with adults, or older kids, and she also needs to be an only-dog. She'd enjoy running and playing in a yard during the day, and hanging out inside at night on a soft, snuggly dog bed. She's 100% housetrained and knows some basic commands. The El Cajon Animal Shelter is open Tuesday through Saturday, and they have a nice play yard where you can interact with Ruby to make sure she's your perfect match. The shelter is located at 1275 North Marshall Street, in El Cajon, and Ruby is waiting to meet you in Kennel #3. All pets are spayed or neutered, vaccinated, and microchipped before adoption.

Sweet Isaac was caught by rescuers who had set traps to catch and neuter feral cats. It became obvious that Isaac was very friendly, and he was taken to a Rescue House vet. He quickly became the staff favorite and was dubbed “Mr. Personality” because he’s affectionate, outgoing and follows people like a dog. He’ll talk to you, snuggle, kiss…and steal food off your plate. His charming nature is good with everyone and everything, including other cats and dogs. One thing to consider, however, is that Isaac tested positive for Feline Immunodeficiency Virus, which is a cat-only virus. It can’t be passed to humans or other species, but because it can be passed to another cat through a serious bite, he may be best as an only cat, or in a home with other FIV cats. Isaac is not a fighter, but there’s always a chance another cat might attack him, so he should always be an indoor kitty. I don’t think it’s that big a deal for most people because not everyone wants 50 cats…but Isaac has been without a home for a very long time. We hope you’ll consider making him part of your family. Call the Rescue House today for more information.

More info about FIV: FIV stands for Feline Immunodeficiency Virus. It is a cat-only virus and can NOT be passed to humans or other species. For Isaac, he most likely fought with a hostile FIV+ cat while he was doing his best, fending for himself. FIV is NOT easily passed between cats that live together as transmission occurs through a serious, penetrating bite wound (or blood transfusion); not a frequent occurrence among domestic cats. An interesting fact is that any cat that has ever been vaccinated for FIV will then show a positive test result.

FIV is a type of "slow virus" that may affect the cats' immune system over a period of years, but as long as FIV+ cats are not exposed to diseases that their immune system cannot handle well, they can live long normal lives. Since their immune system can be weakened, they should visit a vet at the first sign of illness and should be fed a high-quality diet. A good article about FIV from The Best Friends Animal Sanctuary can be found at www.bestfriends.org/Resources/FAQs-About-Feline-Immunodeficiency-Virus-FIV. FIV+ cats can live quite long, happy and normal lives, often with no symptoms at all.

The perfect Easter bunny, .a chocolate bunny, which everyone loves and will most likely be devoured by the end of the holiday. A stuffed bunny, which is the ideal children's gift, as you can put it in the toy chest and forget about it when your child tires of it, and a battery operated chick, which is adorable and will last until the battery dies. What ISN'T a great Easter gift is a BUNNY! They're living, breathing little creatures, who need love, attention and constant care for the next 8 to 10 years. You should only adopt a bunny if you have done your research and are sure about making a long-term commitment. If your children want to pet bunnies, there are shelters full of them, or consider fostering one temporarily until a permanent home can be found. Liz is a super sweet "HOE-TOE" bunny who was being transported from San Jose to Vegas, when her adopter changed her mind. So Liz wound up here in San Diego without a home. She's a nice girl who is a bit shy but warms up with a little attention. She'll be great for a home with adults and children over 7 years old. Find out more about adopting and fostering a bunny by visiting the local House Rabbit Society's website at SanDiegoRabbits.org.

Abigail is a young adult cat who must have belonged to someone at some time because she bonds quickly and loves to cuddle. She's so sweet and just wants to be held or hugged all the time. She's also content laying next to you on your chair or computer desk while you work. She gives kisses and sometimes acts more like a dog. She does well around dogs and cats and is very easy-going when she's not chasing toys around the house. For the most part she likes to sleep, eat and be loved! Abigail is a food hound, so she'll need to have a family who will monitor her feeding or she'll eat everything in sight. Call Animal Rescuers Without Borders at 619-977-3593.

He was about to be euthanized at a shelter when a volunteer called PEAC and made arrangements to drive him to San Diego where he was immediately seen by a vet for emergency surgery. He's been in his foster home ever since. At first, he was terrified of humans and would hiss and growl, and needed to be fed with a turkey baster. With patience, time and love, he's now part of a human and parrot flock. He has an enthusiastic wolf whistle and says "Hello" clearly and sweetly, and is beginning to mumble along to the song "Old McDonald Had A Farm". What a story!

"The Bolt" was found wondering in a neighborhood in San Diego and nobody ever claimed him. 90% of his diet is grasses and weeds. He thrives in a backyard that has Bermuda grass hay with some dandelions and other native weeds. We supplement him with hibiscus flowers and leaves, rose flowers, Bermuda grass hay and other dark green leafy greens. African Sulcata Tortoises do not hibernate, like the native California Desert Tortoise, they require an outdoor enclosure with a minimum space for a larger one of 30 x 30 and a heated type house to sleep in. They love water, but do not swim. They enjoy a mud bath in the summer to keep them cool as well as lay in. The yard must be secure and free of other animals. They get up to 200 lbs and live up to 100 years. The are good pets because: They are kept outdoors, are great for people with allergies to hair and are fun to have around. They interact well with people and love the attention when you feed them. The San Diego Turtle and Tortoise helps you decide if this type of Tortoise is right for you and your family. There is no adoption fee for the animals, but they do require you to become a member which is $25.00. Monthly meetings are in Balboa Park and the schedule is on their website. They are FREE to the public.

Update: Gracie still needs forever home!

George Burns and Gracie Allen are purebred German Shorthair Pointers who lost their home when their owner lost his. They've been together all of their 14 years and were loyal companions and hunting buddies to their former owner. They're fit, active, and love attention, belly rubs and walks. They know many commands, are well-behaved and walk well, with or without a leash. They still enjoy fetching a tennis ball and they are very smart; more than one bag of treats has gone missing from improbable places - they work together to acquire the treats they love and are interesting to watch as they plot to get into the treat shed at the rescue.

Gracie is incredibly affectionate with everyone she meets, giving everyone a little nudge to make sure she is noticed and gets some pets. George is a little more independent and enjoys hunting and exploring, coming back for some pets now and again. They share everything: food bowls, dog house, beds, and toys.They have been a pair for all but the first couple of months of their lives, and GSP Rescue is looking to adopt them as a pair. They get along with all other dogs, seem to be okay with cats, and enjoy children and adults of all ages. They are not demanding at all, except maybe for some love, and they'd be an easy addition to any family - a couple of soft beds and a walk each day is all that they ask.

They love water, and are very accomplished swimmers. Spiderman's diet includes worms, grasshoppers, strawberries, tomatoes and bananas. Softened dog food and scrambled eggs are good sources of protein which he can have once or twice a week. He needs a small yard or enclosure, at least 4-by-6 feet...or 24 square feet. Spiderman is available through the San Diego Turtle & Tortoise Society. There's no adoption fee for people who become members, and the membership fee is just $25.
