Age: 2- years old
Sex:  Spayed Female
Organization:  Lucky Pup Dog Rescue
Phone:  619-756-6376
Website: LuckyPupDogRescue.com 

Meet Ruby!   She is almost 2 years old.  A chesnut colored spaniel with white nose and chest. She is petite, only about 12 pounds.  Great on a leash, does well with other dogs, and cats.  Best with children over 10, she can be a little shy in new situations.  She is still working on her potty training, loves to play and snuggle.  She would do best in a home with perhaps a retired person who has lots of time to spoil her.    She is being fostered with Lucky Pup Dog Rescue in San Diego California.      

Pippin Pippin will be on the San Diego 6-CW Animal House this Thursday, May 28th. Stay Tuned!




Name:
  Pippin
Breed:  Shih Tzu
Age:  8 years old
Sex:  Neutered Male
Organization:  Holly's Garden Small Breed Rescue
Phone: (858) 274-2940
Website: www.HollysGarden.com

Pippin is such a wonderful, respectful and loving Shih Tzu boy. At just 8 years young he is funny, energetic, and curious. He weighs in at just 12-pounds, and gets along with everyone …even the cat.  Pippin just had his teeth cleaned and a full veterinarian check up so you can go ahead and fall in love with him and take him home, knowing that he's been well cared for by Holly's Garden. He will make anyone a great companion and he is so deserving of a forever home.  Please fill out an adoption application at HollysGarden.com, or if you're not ready to adopt, please call to learn how you can become a temporary foster family for another small breed dog, like Pippin

Honey Bun Honey Bun will be on the San Diego 6-CW Animal House this Wednesday, May 27th. Stay tuned!




Name: 
Honey Bun
Breed:  Pughuahua
Age:  1 year old
Sex:  Spayed Female
Organization:  The Rescued Dog
Phone:  (619) 356-3390
Web:  TheRescuedDog.org

Is she a Chug? Is she a Pughuahua? Call her what you want, we call Honey Bun plain old adorable! TRD couldn't resist rescuing this sweet little pug-chihuahua mix after they saw her silly underbite! Honey Bun is a little shy with new people. She was unsure of her foster mom's touch at first, which makes us suspect she was treated with a heavy hand in her past. Once she warms up and starts to trust, though, she is affectionate and loyal. She has met families with children while out on walks, and she gently approaches them for pets. We think Honey Bun would do well in a family with respectful children. She also seems to be particularly fond of men. Honey Bun looks for cues from her humans before she interacts with cats and other dogs. She seems reluctant to interact with other dogs...not aggressive, just unsure. She will need a forever family who will work on her confidence in newsituations. The reward for this training and patience will be a loving, life-long companion. Honey Bun weighs just 10 pounds. If you would like to meet her, please fill out an application at TheRescuedDog.org

Breed: Snowshoe Siamese

Organization: Southern Ca Siamese Rescue
Phone Number: 818-830-3380
Website: cs.siameserescue.org


Beau is a big sensitive boy who was left by his owner at the Imperial Valley Shelter in El Centro.  He was so depressed and scared that he literally shut down – he was in pretty bad shape when SCSR rescued him.  He had a large cataract that caused him to go blind in one eye, but he still has sight in his other eye, and is in excellent health.  His foster family was able to secure his trust, and now he is a happy boy.  He absolutely loves the foster's daughter, and hangs out with her most of the time.  He would make an ideal solo cat, or a companion for one other cat....but he really prefers to be around people, mostly.  He's ok with dogs, as well.   His adoption fee of $125 includes his neuter certificate and current vaccinations.  He's a very large cat with a very large heart.  Please consider filling out an application to adopt Big Beau, or possibly foster another kitty in need.  You'll find an application atcs.siameserescue.org.

Sex: Neutered Male
Organization: Animal Rescuers Without Borders
Phone: (619) 977-3593 cell (call or text)

The dogs were put on antibiotics, sterilized, vaccinated and given medical treatment until they were ready for adoption. For two months poor Wishbone has been in boarding, as there are no foster homes available. He'needs someone who can meet his energy needs, like taking him for a run, or a hike, or letting him run and play in a yard. Animal Rescuers Without Borders is looking for a foster or adopter, who has the time to help him adjust to a home setting, including house training. He's very food motivated, and knows basic commands like sit and down. He's not bad on a leash, but he is very strong, so he needs a good handler. He does great in the car, loves belly rubs, and is good with other dogs. Please fill out an application to foster or adopt at ARWOB.org.

Neutered Male
Organization:
El Cajon Animal Shelter, 1275 N. Marshall Street
Phone:

Meet Bowser, a sociable, handsome, 4-year-old Beagle. Made famous by the Snoopy character, Beagles are a very popular hound, known for their keen sense of smell and even temper. Sadly, this guy is at the El Cajon Animal Shelter because his owners said they didn't have time for him anymore. He gets along great with kids, so he'd make a wonderful pet for a family that doesn't have any other dogs, because he really craves the love and attention for himself. He enjoys going for walks and sniffing around the neighborhood,. Though his previous people didn't spend a lot of time with him, he's a very smart dog, willing to learn all the new things his family never had time to teach him. Bring your family to meet Bowser at the El Cajon Animal Shelter at 1275 N. Marshall Street. He's waiting to meet you in kennel #6 and his adoption fee is only $80. He's already neutered, fully vaccinated and microchipped.

Name:
Tootsie
Breed: Dachshund/Chihuahua Mix
Age: 1 year 2 months
Sex: Spayed Female
Organization: The Rescued Dog.org
Phone: (619) 356-3390

Adorable, pint-sized Tootsie came to The Rescued Dog from Mexico, scared and very pregnant. She had 4 adorable puppies under the watchful eye of her foster mom, who have all found homes of their own...so Tootsie is now ready to start a new chapter in her life. She is very people-oriented, however, she's not fond of small children, as they make her nervous. She'd be a great addition to a quiet adult household ready to shower her with the love and attention she deserves, and she will readily return the attention and more. Tootsie would prefer to be in a home where her people are around a lot to keep her company. She's great on leash and an absolute pleasure to walk. Basically as long as Tootsie is by the side of her people, she's happy! Tootsie can be a little nervous when she first meets new people, but it doesn't take long for her to warm up. Tootsie is house trained and crate trained, and knows a few basic commands, including "sit" and "come". Tootsie is about 8 pounds, and a year old. If you're looking for a sweet, loving dog to join your family, please fill out an application at The Rescued Dog.org.

Australian Kelpie/Cattle Dog
Age:

Sex:
Neutered male
Organization:
TheRescued Dog.org
Phone:
(619) 356-3390

Kelpie was rescued from the San Bernardino shelter, where he had contracted parvo. It was touch and go for a while --and nobody knew if he'd pull through. Thanks to a great vet hospital and his foster family, Kelpie made a comeback and is now happy, healthy, and ready for his forever home. He was named in honor of his breed, an Australian Kelpy mix, and he's a fun, active little guy, who loves toys and a good game of fetch. He'll run alongside a bike, which has been a great way to work off some of his energy, and he's mastered a lot of basic commands, including sit, stay, recall, fetch, and heel. Kelpie is crate and house trained. He currently lives with other dogs and is great in the home and off leash, however he can be protective of his family when out on the town, so he'll need continued training to work on that behavior. He comes with a free training session to help acclimate him to a new home and lifestyle. Kelpie is about 35 pounds. An active lifestyle with older kids would best suit Kelpie's needs.

Name: Chance
Breed: Shepherd mix
Age: 3 years old
Sex: Neutered Male
Contact: Pawtopia Training
Phone: (858) 414-7797

A homeless woman saved Chance from a drunk & abusive man. She lived on the streets with Chance, as there were no homeless shelters that accept dogs. To help him find a better life, she was convinced to relinquish Chance, and he was put in a kennel, as there were no foster homes available. Going from freedom and constant human companionship to living in a kennel surrounded by strange dogs, caused Chance to become reactive toward other big dogs, but all people who know him describe Chance as a sweet, cuddly boy who gives to give kisses and craves attention. Recently, Chance was sponsored & evaluated by the trainers at Pawtopia Dog Training. They say he is relaxed and happy around all people and activities, and loves cuddling. He's also very smart! Pawtopia SO believes in Chance, they're offering a free private lesson to his adopter! He is reactive to other dogs, but showed great progress during his training session. Nevertheless, they'd love to find him an adopter or foster without other dogs. Please contact Colleen Demling, with Pawtopia.com and help us find this exceptionally affectionate boy an owner who will love him once again.

Website:
ARWOB.org


Mia & Tia are 6-pound Chihuahua/Dachshund mix puppies who are great with children, dogs & cats. They could be 15-20 pounds full grown. They need an immediate FOSTER HOME, and ideally a forever family. They are social and outgoing, normal typical happy playful pups who were rescued from the streets in March when they were both prancing around, getting too close to the curb. Their rescuer saw them and stopped the car to pick them up. They are NOT very barky. They don't bark unless there is something that will entice them to do so, such as people walking by the yard. They do well in car rides and are great in the crate and can sleep quietly and comfortably for 7 hours! They are still not house trained, but an adopter who is interested in a puppy needs to have the time for a house training a puppy. There is a adoption event this Saturday, May 9th, from 10 a.m. to 12 p.m. at the PETCO in Clairemont. They can stop by and meet these 2 girls along with approximately 25 other adoptable dogs, small to large breeds, low-energy adults to high-energy kids....... recommend they visit ARWOB.org to submit a dog adoption or dog foster application ahead of time, to simplify things and to alert volunteers there is someone possibly interested in one of the rescues. :)

Barbie and her sister are Baja rescues who have been through a lot in their short lifetimes. They are true "warriors", having survived distemper, mange, and ringworm. But they are now healthy, out of quarantine, and ready to be adopted! Now that they're out of isolation, they're interacting and doing well with other dogs and even cats, but they still haven't had the benefit of training, or even doing things like riding in a car. Despite their early isolation, they are very well behaved girls. They need adopters who know the highly intelligent herding breeds, and can introduce them to all the world has to offer. Of course, above all else, Barbie and her sister need families who will love and cherish them for the rest of their lives. If you are interested in adopting Barbie, please fill out an adoption application online, or if you would like to foster her, an application for fostering may also be filled out. Go to ARWOB.org for details.

She gets several walks throughout the day and happily prances around the neighborhood. She almost always has a huge smile on her face! She loves to go for car rides, and will stick her head out the window if she can! She'd be best in a home without cats and is better with male dogs. She's currently enrolled in training classes and so far knows sit, shake, stay and come. She's a great hiking partner too! If you'd like to meet Betty Moo, visit www.pbrsd.org and check out the event calendar to see where the next adoption event is being held.

Dora was rescued from a shelter with her puppy, who has already been adopted. This little 13-pound Rat Terrier mix is adored by her foster family who says she has been an amazing dog since day ONE. She has never had an accident in the house so she is totally house trained and not destructive or vocal. She loves children and does very well with all dogs. She's a little too interested in cats, she won't attack them, but will certainly annoy them. So a home without cats is best. She does well in the crate, car and on leash and is a great dog for either a family with children or a single working adult who is looking for a couch buddy or a walking companion. Her foster family doesn't want to see her go but they realize they have to let her go if they are to continue saving other animals in need.

These three cuties were actually born in foster care, their blind Siamese mom being rescued from a high-kill shelter while pregnant. At six week old, they are now learning to eat on their own and use the litterbox. Playing and investigating are their favorite pastimes. They will be ready for adoption in about another four weeks. Fostering a kitten or a cat can be one of the most rewarding experiences your family can share together. Not only are you able to enjoy the love and joy they bring to your home, but you also play a large role in the enrichment of their lives. By fostering, you save the life of a very lucky kitty who gets a second chance at finding a forever home. Fostering will warm your heart and change your life. You can make a difference by opening your heart and home today. There are so many just like these three kitties who need help from people just like you. For those of you who say you would never be able to let your foster kitties be adopted out when the time came, stop and think how rewarding it would be knowing that you saved a life when you took them in, and you are now saving yet another life of one in need as you let one go. Southern California Siamese Rescue covers medical costs. You provide food, litter and love. No experience is necessary. They help you gauge what type of foster cat is right for you. Foster opportunities exist for adult cats all the way to kittens that require bottle feeding; you determine what best fits your busy lifestyle.

Sweet little Minnie was dumped at a high kill shelter without a second thought that an 8-year-old Chihuahua didn't stand a chance in that environment. Her foster family says she's very affectionate, and good around other small dogs and cats, too. She's a great snuggler, and loves to be held. She'll burrow under the blankets and cuddle up next to you to keep warm at night. She's good on a leash, housetrained, and knows how to use the doggy door. She'd make a terrific lapdog for an adult or older person, but small children tend to scare her. She doesn't bark or make any noise, and is content to sit on her doggy bed or in your lap.

Rosie is a 7-year-old Staffordshire Terrier. She's a sweet, mellow gal who was abusively over-bred and left in terrible condition before winding up at a shelter. That never dampened her spirit and her tail has never stopped wagging when she meets new people and potential new friends. She's lucky enough to have a foster family that works from home and they have determined that she does not like to be left alone, so it would be nice to find her a similar forever family, where at least one person is around at any given time. She likes being around male dogs better than females, but would make a excellent solo dog.

Willie is an adorable 1.5 year old Yorkshire Terrier for adoption at the El Cajon Animal Shelter. He has a sensitive nature, and life at the shelter is a little overwhelming for him, so we really hope someone will act soon and bring him into their home and family. He also gets stressed out when strangers stare at him in his kennel, but if you ask a staff member to bring him out into the play yard where he's more comfortable, he is friendly and affectionate. Problem is, most people don't realize that, so they just pass him over. Willie is great with other dogs, walks nicely on a leash, and loves to cuddle up with people he knows and trusts. He'd be best in a calm home environment, maybe one without toddlers. He's still very young and ready to learn new things. The El Cajon Animal Shelter is located at 1275 N. Marshall Street and Willie is in Kennel #53, he's neutered, vaccinated, microchipped and his adoption fee is only $80!

She's available for adoption through Animal Rescuers Without Borders, and you can meet Oreo at ARWOBs Cat Adoption Center located at the PETSMART in Cairemont, on Genesee.

Colonel is an older and calmer gentleman, who thinks he's a large lap dog. He had a tumor on his leg which resulted in an amputation. PBRSD has taken care of that for him and he seems much happier without the useless leg. He's a pretty easy going, happy guy, and he loves to ride in the car with his head out the window. While he seems dog friendly, we are not so sure about his ability to live with smaller dogs. We think he'd like to be with a same sized dog or be the only spoiled senior in the home. At 10 years old, we think he's earned some quiet time and spoiling.

If you're interested in adopting Rosie please call Kristen with the Great Pyrenees Association of Southern California Rescue at 858.847.2271 and fill out an application at GreatPyrRescue.org. The organization is also looking for families, especially in the San Diego county area, who are able to foster this giant but gentle breed. So often people live in communities where large breeds are banned, so if you can foster a giant breed, please call and offer your support.

She's REALLY low maintenance, and would be ideal for someone seeking companionship. She'd do well in a small space with limited steps or stairs, and only needs a small patio.

Blue was rescued from South Korea where they have unsanctioned greyhound racing. He is a rare blue greyhound, which means there is a soft blue hue to his coat. He has striking yellow eyes and a very friendly personality. Blue is still very puppy-like. He's a healthy, energetic boy who loves playing with toys. He's gentle, but very powerful, and not recommended for a family with toddlers. Blue has been neutered, micro-chipped, and vaccinated. Obedience training class is highly recommended, not only to give Blue the skills he needs, but will also make a strong bond between Blue and his adopters. Prior to adoption an application and home check are required.

We're happy to report that Hunter has been adopted.....however Brandy is a 3-year-old female Min Pin mix still looking for her forever home. 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. 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!

Phone: (619) 287-8200

Billie is a DNA-sexed female Blue-fronted Amazon. She's in her late twenties and lived with the same family for over 26 years. Her original owner passed some years ago, and the son who cared for her now travels extensively due to work commitments. Billie was on a seed-based diet; however, she now eats pellets and an excellent variety of vegetables. With the addition of foraging toys and a roomier cage, her new feather growth looks beautiful with no evidence of over-preening. Billie uses a variety of words and phrases, whistles, and laughter. She steps up well for both genders in her foster home. She is very engaging; an all-around clown; and clearly enjoys interaction from the people in her life, allowing trusted flock members to hold her like a football and turn her upside down.

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

She does well with all kids, but tends to grab toys from people's hands. Her foster mom is working on that. Queenie also loves dock jumping.

He is very affectionate, friendly and engaging with people and will settle in after play time. He knows how to sit on command and is working on walking with a loose leash, and we believe he is already potty trained. With the right fit, Bogie would fit in fine with a family with children.

Belle is as beautiful on the inside as she is on the outside. She's a lab mixed with some breed that causes her coat to reflect black, brown, red, gold, chestnut and orange colors when you look closely. Possibly some sort of mastiff? Born with a deformity in her front leg, she was deemed "unadoptable" and headed straight to death row at the Lancaster Shelter. She caught the eye of a Lab & Friends volunteer who was there that day, she was rescued and temperament tested....she scored an A+ on her temp test, by the way! Since being with Labradors & Friends, she has been fitted with a prosthetic leg, which she is refusing to use so far, but with some work and rehab, the goal is to get her to be comfortable walking on it. It would be wonderful to find a family dedicated to her rehab. Belle is an active, happy, easy-going, lovable dog. She's totally housetrained, has wonderful manners, well-socialized and enjoys riding in the car. She's great with other dogs, and kids!

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.

Phone: (619) 469-8771

Angel is a happy, plump 8-year-old, spayed, short haired tabby who absolutely loves people. She was found outside the gates of the National Cat Protection Society, in the bushes, where she was meowing for help. Even though she is declawed, she was abandoned at night to fend for herself. She was lucky to have been unharmed and she was very thankful for being rescued. Angel loves having her back scratched and does a funny licking motion when being scratched. She's been placed on a diet right because she loves to over eat... and she can stand to lose a little, just to get her back to being healthy again. Angel loves to talk and loves to be picked up and carried around. She tolerates other animals, but prefers to be the only animal in the house getting the attention. She's litter box trained, fully vaccinated, FeLV tested, treated for fleas, dewormed, and microchipped.

Remy is all boy, and an absolute doll. Why his previous owner surrendered him to a high-kill animal shelter is a complete mystery. He just loves attention, purrs up a storm, climbs into any available lap, and has perfect litter-box manners. Of course, he's neutered and up to date on all vaccinations. Remy has gained 3-pounds since he was rescued from the shelter. He loves his food...wet or dry, it's all good! He uses a scratching post nicely and is very sweet and gentle when being held. His foster mom says he likes to roll over to have his belly rubbed...just like a puppy. 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!

Samson is a 7-year-old, 98-pound, neutered male Labrador retriever mix available for adoption at the San Diego Humane Society, Escondido Campus. Samson is your ultimate ball dog.

He’s a happy, friendly guy, and when he isn’t busy playing ball he’s happy to lounge at your feet or share his love and affection. Samson can be a little possessive of his toys – he lays on them so he can keep them all to himself – so he will do best as the only dog in his new home and would prefer older children or adults only. Samson’s $25 adoption fee includes neuter, microchip, vaccinations and vet exam. The Humane Society's Escondido Campus is located at 3450 E.

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.

Maggie does very well with kids, but she's not good with cats and can ease into a home with another dog...preferably a boy dog. She currently shares her foster home with a 3-year-old male bulldog and an 8 year old boy. She's very low key, and loves to snuggle. She absolutely loves any attention, even from strangers. Plus, she loves to be around kids while they're playing. Maggie is crate trained and will put herself in "time-out" whenever she's been naughty!

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.

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.

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.

"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.

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