ElizabethCLICK HERE to see Elizabeth's video on KUSI GOOD MORNING SAN DIEGO! On Thursday, April 17th she is coming to the CW Animal House. Stay Tuned!

Breed:
Hotot mix
Organization:
San Diego House Rabbit Society
Phone:
(858) 774-4249

Tomorrow on San Diego 6, The CW, we're going to be showing you the perfect Easter gifts....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.

Aiden is a 5-month-old, Border Collie mix puppy. He loves other dogs and likes to spend his days playing with his friends, or napping at your feet. Because he's in a temporary foster home, we can say with confidence that Aiden is good with kids of all ages, and house-trained. His foster family admits he still needs some training with walking on a leash...but hey, he's just a puppy...he'll learn! He needs a family who will be able to spend time with him, and continue puppy training so that when he's a full-grown, 40-pound dog, he'll be well-adjusted and well-behaved. His grooming needs are few, which is great for the busy family. He is learning how to play fetch and will be a great Frisbee or agility dog someday. Aiden is an all around great little pup who will make a wonderful companion for the right family. Call Becky with Aussies & Others Dog Rescue to make an appointment to meet him!

Petunia was rescued off the streets four months ago when she was just a skinny, pregnant young dog. She was taken into a foster home where she gave birth to five wonderful puppies who have all been lucky enough to be adopted. Now we're hoping it's Petunia's turn to find a loving family of her own. She's a Lab mix, and just a perfect compact size. She's completely house-trained and crate trained, and she rides well in the car. She loves all people and gets along with dogs and cats. She's active but not super energetic, so she'd be a great type of dog to take to the dog park, and then just relax with you in the evening. She's just an all-around great dog. If you're ready to meet Petunia, call Animal Rescuers Without Borders today to schedule an appointment with her foster family, or meet her at a weekend adoption event.

He had demodectic mange, infections in both ears, secondary skin infections, and entropian (where the eye lid faces inward and scratches the cornea). The doctors at Mission Animal & Bird Hospital started him on medication immediately, and when he was healthy enough, did his entropian surgery. Bronson is doing great! He loves children, other dogs, and all people that will give him pets and attention. He walks nicely on leash and is very gentle. His only down-side is that he has quite a bulldog snore! Bronson needs a family that understands the bulldog breed and knows that his future medical needs will be more extensive than other dogs. If you are interested in meeting Bronson please email Pam at Info@lastchanceatlife.org. He would love to meet you!

Sex: Neutered Male

Mario's Website

Mario was rescued off the streets of Mexico in January by a couple of students in Ensenada. He was such a sweet dog, they wound up taking him in. After three months, they were unable to find his home, so they asked Animal Rescuers Without Borders for help. Now he lives in a San Diego condo with a loving foster family who say he's a couch potato. Mario is amazing, very outgoing and enjoys human companionship. Since he was only recently neutered, he does have an annoying habit of humping other dogs at the park, which will eventually go away. Fortunately, his marking issue was resolved by his foster parents taking him for multiple walks, and working hard to house train him. He is great around dogs, cats, children, and has no aggression what-so-ever. Additionally, he walks well on a leash, loves being in the car, and doesn't bark. Please call Animal Rescuers Without Borders to meet Mario and see if he's a good fit for your family.

She’s in a foster home with several other kitties and dogs and she’s fine with all of them but she’d be just as happy being the only kitty in the home with people who love and pet her. She loves to walk around the house and follow her foster while she watches TV or works on the computer. She also loves to cuddle and take naps. She’ll groom other cats when they’re around.

She loves kids, and warms up very quickly with them. Daphne lives in a foster home, so we're certain that she's house and crate trained. She enjoys a daily walk, but she isn't exactly an athlete. Basking in the sun, and classical music take her to her zen place. She is about 3 years young and would be perfect dog for a family with children since she loves them so much.

Chique (chick-ee) is a 4.5 year old ex-racing Greyhound at the Greyhound Adoption Center in El Cajon. She was rescued in August when they got a call from the Caliente Racetrack about a dog with a broken hock. A volunteer was quickly dispatched to the border to pick her up, and transport her to a veterinarian. Fortunately she was able to recover with the use of a splint and many weeks of rest. Chique's recovery was tedious and lengthy but she is now ready for adoption. She's a very affectionate, playful dog but would do best in a home without cats and small dogs. She would, however, enjoy living in a home with energetic, older children. 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 every third Sunday of the month from 1-to-3 pm. Please come meet Chique and her 50 companions on Sunday, February 16. 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.

Ralphie has been a part of the Parrot Education & Adoption Center for two years. He was part of a wild flock near L.A. until he was hit by a car, breaking his leg and bursting his air sacs. 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 theirr website. They are FREE to the public.

He loves to ride in the car, and go on walks too, as long as you don't walk very fast ...but his favorite place to go is the off-leash dog park. Potter is great off leash and won't wander off while you chat with the other dog parents. Potter is not a barker, and don't make much of a fuss about anything. He's just happy to hang around, and be near you. He has a little dry eye and need eye drops a couple times a day, but will pay you back with kisses and cuddles. I am a young senior too, and would probably best suited to a retired adult home without young kids. Won't you take me home with you?

Rescue isn't just about pulling the perfect dogs that everyone wants. It is also about helping seniors and special needs dogs who need a little extra help! Rosella was sitting at a shelter for more than a month. With an A++ on her behavioral assessment, she became a staff favorite...everyone loved her and she loved everyone. But at 10 years of age, they were losing hope that she'd be adopted. When the shelter environment began to impact her health, it became apparent that she had to be rescued immediately. That's when Lab & Friends stepped up. Today she's in a foster home. getting the care she needs. She's a happy, fun loving dog that enjoys slow walks. She has elbow dysplasia, some arthritis and is losing her hearing. But she still has a wonderful, loving spirit that'll warm your heart. She's great with dogs, kids and people, but not cats. She does great in the car, on a leash, and is house trained.

This is sweet Daphne, and she’s considered a special needs dog because she’s blind…but she functions amazingly well once she gets used to her environment. She’s a little shy at first, but once she knows she's safe, she’s a super wiggly happy girl. Daphne’s very playful with people and loves to hide her bones. She’s very good inside the home and not destructive at all. She gets excited and playful when she notices other dogs around. She likes walks, but she’s mostly a couch potato and will be an awesome companion for someone who wants a lazy dog to just hang out with. She's really wonderful with children, house trained and does really well with a routine. This beautiful girl would make any loving family complete. If you’re interested in meeting Daphne please fill out an adoption application with Passion for Pitties at PassionForPitties.com.

Breed: Boxer mix
Sex: Neutered male
Weight: 45 pounds

Sunny is a 9-year-old neutered male boxer mix available for adoption from the Escondido Humane Society. Sunny got his name from his disposition!

Sunny responds well to affection and praise and is delighted to learn new obedience commands. Sunny twirls his tail like a propeller when he is happy – which is a lot.

Phone : (619) 561-0361

Randy is a very social, sweet, 4-year-old boy who loves all people! He's positive for Feline Immunodeficiency Virus, FIV, but he's very healthy and could make an excellent companion for another cat with FIV, a virus that affects a cat's immune system. As long as they're not exposed to an unhealthy environment, they can live perfectly long, normal lives. It's a cat-only virus and can't be passed to humans or other species. It's usually transmitted during a cat fight, so Randy should be an only cat or live with another friendly FIV+ cat. He should also remain indoors. He's vaccinated, microchipped, neutered and comes with a free vet visit after adoption. Friends of Cats is located on Olde Highway 80, east of Lake Jennings Park Road in El Cajon.

German Shorthaired Pointer

California GSP Rescue

: (951) 266-9477

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.

Kate is not a demanding dog and is very easy to have around. She just needs a nice house to sleep in and a back yard to take in a bit of sunshine. Kate got a rough start, arriving at the shelter needing some urgent surgery. But this beautiful girl is making up for lost time now and has recently joined the shelter’s Canine Good Citizen classes with one of her volunteer pals. She's a quick and willing learner and has already figured out "stay" and "down" and is working on polite leash manners. Kate seems comfortable around the other dogs in class and is very relaxed and friendly around the humans in her life. Kate would do her very best in a home where she could be the one and only dog, and older kids would be best.
