His sister Bailey is confident, and laid-back. She's also outgoing and loves to play. She loves to be held and will hug you back. Squeaky is the smallest of the litter who squeaks with excitement when she sees you. She's the most people-oriented of the bunch, loves to be held and cuddled.

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

Phone: (858) 484-0985

Ron and TomClick on "Ron and Tom's picture" to see their video on San Diego 6-CW Animal House!

Name:
Ron Fleasley & Tom Meowdle
Breed: Short-haired Grey Tabby
Age: 3 month old kittens
Sex: Neutered Males
Organization: The Rescue House
Phone: (760) 591-1211
Website: Rescuehouse.org

These kittens were found alone at an office in North Park when they were only 3 weeks old, and too young to eat on their own. Some kind people tried to care for them initially, but didn't realize the intense care they needed at that age. They were moved into the Rescue House foster program with an experienced bottle-feeder, and soon began to thrive! Named after Harry Potter characters, these adorable, super sweet kittens purr as soon as you pick them up. They love to play and wrestle with all kinds of toys. Tom Meowdle loves toy mice and will growl if anyone gets too close when he's holding his mouse. After playing hard, he likes to snuggle up on a blanket with his brother, Ron Fleasley. They've never spent a day alone, and ideally they'd be adopted together or into a home with another friendly cat. They may even be okay with dogs and they're comfortable with children who know how to hold them properly. If you'd like to meet these charmers, and let them cast a spell on you, go to RescueHouse.org to fill out an application, or to find out about their many adoption centers around the county.


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

Name:
Bock
Breed: Greyhound
Age: 2 years old
Sex; Neutered Male
Organization: Greyhound Adoption Center, 4821 Dehesa Rd in El Cajon
Phone: (877) HoundSavers
Web: HoundSavers.org

Bock is a 2-year-old ex-racing greyhound for adoption at the Greyhound Adoption Center. He was rescued from the Caliente racetrack with an injured foot, and during a routine vet checkup, they discovered Bock is nearly blind. Somehow this amazing dog managed to race all that time without his condition being detected. He's acclimated so well to his diminishing eyesight that he even fooled the shelter staff and volunteers. Normally, Greyhounds are sighthounds, and renowned for having exceptional eyesight. There's no treatment for his condition, but it's not painful. We hope to find him a loving forever home while he still has some sight, so he can adjust to his surroundings before it's completely gone. Brok is an ambassador for all the special-needs, visually-impaired dogs in shelters everywhere. Meet Bock and 50 other greyhounds this Sunday at the Greyhound Adoption Center's Open House. Tour their facility from 1-to-3 PM, on Dehesa Road in El Cajon and visit with volunteers to learn more about greyhound rescue, rehab, adoption, and volunteer opportunities. Call 877-478-8364, or visit HoundSavers.org.


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

Name: Fawn
Breed: Dachshund/Shepherd
Age: 9 Months Old
Sex: Spayed Female
Organization: The Rescued Dog
Website: TheRescuedDog.org
Phone: (619) 356-3390

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

The medical expenses were paid for by the ACES Foundation, which raises money to help the animals at the El Cajon shelter. Through the whole ordeal, Rocky was such a good little patient who stayed in good spirits. He's great with other animals, housebroken and would do fine with gentle, considerate children. He's been in two different foster homes since February, and both families adored him and have nothing but positive things to say. Please contact the El Cajon Animal Shelter, on N. Marshall Street, to adopt Rocky. And if you'd like to help other dogs like Rocky, receive the medical care they need, we'd love to see you at The Hills Local Pub, in La Mesa TONIGHT for the ACES Fundraiser between 5 and 9 p.m. A percentage of the proceeds will go to ACES, and you'll have a chance to participate in raffle drawings and a silent auction.

Because of his long fur, Jules must be groomed at least once a week. He loves to play and nibble and would make a great boyfriend for a spayed bunny girl or a wonderful companion for a quiet person who would like a little companionship. If you've never owned a bunny, or just want to know about what it takes to care for a rabbit, we recommend taking the San Diego House Rabbit Society's BUNNY 101 class at their Kearny Mesa Shelter located on Mercury Street.

Name: Bert
Breed: Rat Terrier/Chihuahua
Age: 1 year old
Sex: Neutered Male
Organization: Animal Rescuers Without Borders
Phone: (619) 977-3593 cell (call or text)
Website: ARWOBorg

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

Rex
Breed: American Bulldog Mix
Age: 2 years old
Sex: Neutered Male
Organization: It's The Pits
Phone: (858) 484-0985
Website: ItsThePits.org

Rex is a 2-year-old American Bulldog/Pittie mix for adoption from It's The Pits Rescue. When they initially rescued Rex, he had to have entropion eye surgery to correct a horrible, painful condition in both eyes. The vet then discovered that he had a mid-grade heart murmur, so Rex underwent a successful heart surgery. He also has a mild form of epilepsy which is treated with medication. It's well-controlled, but there is a possibility of seizures. He's a super mellow guy who loves everything: cats, dogs, kids. They even use him to calm the other nervous dogs at their adoption events. He currently lives with other Pit Bulls, and a kitty, all of whom he loves to sleep and cuddle with. He'd do best in a home WITH other pets. He's not a super active guy...he'd rather have a picnic with you on the beach, than go on a hike or run. Vigorous activity just isn't his thing...he's a complete couch potato who loves long naps. Rex is a great ambassador for the Breed, and would enjoy accompanying you everywhere you go. Please fill out an application at ItsThePits.org.

Name:
Chunk
Breed: Maltese mix
Age: 3 years old
Sex: Neutered Male
Organization: Maltese And More Rescue
Phone: (858) 278-4049
Website: MalteseAndMoreRescue.org
Email: info@malteseandmorerescue.org

Chunk is a 3-year-old Maltese mix for adoption from Maltese And More Rescue, here in San Diego. He may have a little bit of terrier in him, but his adorable face looks just like a white Maltese. After Maltese & More rescued Chunk, they had to shave off 5-pounds of matted fur, and treat him for ear infections and sensitive paws. He started off at a chunky 19 pounds, but with a strict diet and exercise plan, he's trimmed down to 14 pounds. This guy underwent an amazing physical and behavioral transformation since he was rescued as a stray. Now that he's in a stable, loving, and safe foster home, he loves snuggling with his foster mom and hanging out with all of her friends. Chunk also loves playing with other dogs, and seems to respect other dogs who just need their own space. He's even nice to the cats in his foster mom's neighborhood, and always introduces himself with a friendly wagging tail. Chunk is housebroken, great on a leash, and generally very well-behaved. He's not a big fan of the car yet, but is improving as he experiences more exciting car rides to the park or meet new pals. He has a bit of separation anxiety, which improves greatly as he gets more comfortable with his living arrangements. Chunk is really excited to find his forever family, and we hope you'll either call, or fill out an adoption application at MalteseAndMoreRescue.org. Don't forget, they also need temporary foster homes if you're ready to help save a Maltese, but not quite ready for a long-term commitment.

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


This is Brady's second time being featured on CW6 News. He's a practically perfect dog in every way, so I'm just not sure why there isn't a waiting list to adopt him. Of course, last time we featured him, he was pretty nervous and probably didn't show very well. But Brady IS a super sweet family dog who loves affection and gets along great with other dogs and even cats! He's a mix of Great Pyrenees, Anatolian Shepherd and Labrador Retriever...three very popular breeds. He's just 2-year-old, with a playful personality and he'd make an excellent companion for someone who enjoys running or hiking. His foster family says he does well on a leash, is mindful, well-behaved, and enjoys accompanying them for lunch. He's completely housebroken, with good manners indoors, and he stays off of the furniture. Please fill out an adoption application at GreatPyrRescue.org, where you can also find out about becoming a temporary foster family for a gentle giant if you're just not quite ready for a long term commitment. If you're in the military and have deployment or relocation concerns, temporary fostering may be the perfect solution for your family, and a great way to save a life.

She rides well in the car, loves walks and is very good on the leash. She would love someone to walk her daily. She knows how to sit for treats or her dinner. She is fully potty trained and will even spin in circles and bark at the door to be let out. She is shy around other dogs, especially ones that are bigger than her. She is a very smart, sweet, happy girl.

Meet Joshua...an active pup who is house trained and working on his house manners. At 1 year of age, Joshua is ready start obedience training to learn more tricks and commands. He may be too much dog for small children as he's a pretty happy boy who could knock them over when he runs around. Sweet Joshua is very social and playful with other dogs, he's very athletic and loves to wrestle and play with the resident dog in his foster home. He sleeps nicely all night long on his dog bed, but his foster family crates him when he's home alone because he may chew on shoes if you leave them out. He IS getting better at playing with his toys and leaving other things alone. He's young, smart, and a quick learner. Joshua loves to go on daily walks, taking trips to Fiesta Island, and the parks and beaches. If you're looking for a running partner, this boy would love to join you! Joshua can jump a 4-5 ft fence so he really needs a yard with fencing that's at least 6-feet or taller.

Pepper and Bingo may be seniors but these two are definitely rock-stars at heart! They have 80's rock-band hair, and they're ready to steal your heart! These once beloved pets found themselves behind shelter bars, not due to excessive partying or trashing hotel rooms, but unfortunately, because their owner passed away and didn't have a plan for them. Pepper and Bingo are believed to be 11-to-13 years young. Pepper may be a bit younger than Bingo, who has cataracts, and is visually impaired, but gets around just fine. Both have been checked out thoroughly by a vet, and have had recent dental cleanings. Pepper and Bingo are good with cats, dogs, kids, they're housebroken and crate trained. If you have a soft spot for crazy-haired mini poodles, this bonded pair may be perfect for you! They're up to date on vaccines, microchipped and come with an annual $250 vetting stipend for anyone willing to open their home to two awesome little rockers! Plus, senior citizens receive $50 off the adoption fee. Fill out an application at LionelsLegacy.org and someone will get back to you soon.

Age: 1 year, 2 months old
Sex: Neutered Male
Organization: PBRSD
Phone: (858) 333-6911 x 501
Website: www.pbrsd.org

Hitch's story is quite sad. He was found living in squalor after being abandoned in an apartment after a family moved out. He was left to scrounge through trash for ketchup packages to eat. He was literally starving, and that has created a fear in him of being without food. Because of this, he can be a little protective of food and treats. While he plays with other dogs, and currently lives with another dog, he's still learning that he won't be allowed to starve again. Pit Bull Rescue San Diego thinks he might be better as an only pet or with someone experienced in resource guarding. Hitch loves to snuggle with his human and canine friends. Hitch sleeps on his back with his cheeks & gums flopping open. He also makes his foster family laugh by burying himself in the blankets. He's housebroken, crate trained, and learning basic commands. His foster family wants him to find someone who will let him snuggle up on the couch, and take him on daily walks. Read more about Hitch, and submit an adoption application, at pbrsd.org. Check the events page for upcoming adoption events when you can come out to meet him.

Kia
Breed: Cocker Spaniel
Age: 3.5 years old
Sex: Spayed Female
Organization: Animal Rescuers Without Borders
Phone: (619) 977-3593
Website: .ARWOBorg

Kia is a 3.5 year old, 25-pound Cocker Spaniel who was adopted by a family and then returned because they claimed she was having seizures. So Animal Rescuers Without Borders took her to their vet for tests, but everything came out normal. Since she has been back she hasn't had a single seizure episode, but potential interested families should know she could be epileptic. It's a condition that's easily manageable with medications, which she's not currently on as neither the vets nor the foster family has ever witnessed a seizure. We really hope someone will not be scared off by that issue because Kia is a wonderful girl. GIven the chance, Kia will be a great family dog. She's good with other dogs as long as they let her be the boss, but she's honestly happiest when she's just relaxing with her people and enjoying some peace and quiet. If you'd like to give it a try as a foster or adopter, please fill out an application at ARWOB.org or you can call or text Animal Rescuers Without Borders at (619) 977-3593. They also have weekend adoption events, so be sure to check out their event calendar.

Age: 2-years- old
Sex: Neutered male
Organization: Wagging Dog Rescue
Phone: (310) 853-0757
Website: WaggingDog.org

Meet Chewbacca, a handsome, friendly boy in urgent need of a new foster home, as his foster dad deploys in June!!! We like to call him Chewie and believe it or not, he's even cuter in the fur :) He's a happy pup of 2-years and the perfect size at 50-pounds. We're not sure what he's made of, other than tons of fun and laughter. He has the looks of a pit bull blend with some shepherd or retriever mixed in, and he LOVES water! Turn on the hose and instead of running, Chewie figures that's the signal to play! Our golden kid with the widow's peak is a sweet and gentle boy. He gets so excited to see his people that his tail wags wildly for at least two minutes (even if they're just walking in from another room). Chewie's super playful and enjoys the company of a well matched dog friend. He's not a fan of cats but sure hopes to have a playful dog pal who likes to cuddle too. He's learned to be a great house companion and he's super treat motivated. It's funny how his hearing improves when there's food involved! He's crate trained, house broken, and good at entertaining himself with toys when it's time to chill out. Chewie hopes his people will like to play fetch 'cuz he's great at retrieving the ball....over and over and over. He's sure to keep you in stitches with his goofy antics and puppy fun :)

Like most dogs, Chewie loves walks and needs daily exercise to thrive and grow. A semi-active family willing to provide leadership and structure will help this darling boy mature into one fine adult. If you're a fun loving family who enjoys doing things with your furkids too, then get in touch and meet Chewiepooh. He'll snag your heart and hopefully a forever place with you! And if you're not ready for a lifelong commitment, please ask us about fostering Chewbacca!!

Phone: (858) 565-2869
Web: SanDiegoRabbits.org

Little Milo is a handsome mini lop boy, just over 6 months old. This sweet boy was found wandering a San Diego neighborhood and taken in by a nice family who understood that bunnies should not be outside like that. They cared for him while looking for his owners, but no one ever stepped forward to claim him. The family could not keep him long term so relinquished him. Milo is a sweet guy; alternately mellow and sleepy, then active and playful. He loves attention and getting pets, but does not like being held. Milo has been neutered and is now really good with his litter box. He loves toys, playing on cardboard boxes, and enjoying his yummy evening salads. He's liking the "house rabbit" lifestyle! Milo is best suited to an adult home or one with children over 8 years old.

He is fine with cats but may be uncomfortable around dogs To adopt, visit SanDiegoRabbits.org/adoption and complete the online Adopter Profile. If you are new to house rabbits you may be asked to attend our Bunny 101 class prior to adopting a bunny.

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

Maisy is a cheerful 10-year-old wire-haired Jack Russell Terrier, and she's ready to bring some sunshine into someone's life with her happy little face. She's friendly and good-natured, so she gets along with everyone...people and dogs included. She enjoys going on walks and chasing after her toys, but she's also overjoyed when it's time to snuggle. Maisy enjoys being brushed and she's already housetrained, so she'll make an ideal companion. She'd do well in any size home, including an apartment, as long as she gets her walks, and she'd be a great family pet. Please visit the El Cajon Animal Shelter on North Marshall Street, where you can take Maisy out to the play-yard to get better acquainted. Because she's a little older, her adoption fee is only $30, which includes her microchip, vaccinations and her spay. If you call, please refer to her animal ID# 21767. If you know a senior citizen who needs a companion, please be sure to let them know about Maisy and the special adoption fee at the El Cajon shelter.

ShihTzu/Lhasa Apso
Age:
7 years old
Sex:
Spayed Female
Organization: Animal Rescuers Without Borders
Phone: 619-977-3593
Website: ARWOB.org

Gigi is a cute-as-a-button mix of ShihTzu and Lhasa Apso. She's just 18-pounds, full grown, at 7 years of age. Normally she has a pretty, long, silky coat, but she's currently sporting a "summer cut". Gigi is not only in need of a forever home, but she could really use a temporary foster home, as well. In fact, someone could foster-to-adopt, which is an ideal way to help save a pet, while deciding if this is the pet you want to adopt permanently. Gigi is good with dogs, cats and children. She's well-socialized, great in her crate and in the car. If we had to pick a flaw, it would be that she still needs some work on the leash. She was dumped by her previous owner at the shelter with heavily matted hair, a skin infection and bad dental disease. ARWOB pulled her from the shelter, took care of her teeth, got her spayed, up to date on her vaccinations and gave her a good grooming. Now this pretty little lap-dog is ready for a loving companion to notice her....believe it or not, Gigi has been waiting for that moment for 4 months! Gigi would like us to remind you that she's also a pretty good little guard dog who just happens to love belly rubs. Go to ARWOB.org for an application to foster or adopt!

Sex: Neutered Male

Website: ARWOB.org


Atlas is available for adoption because his previous family couldn't provide for him. They found him, and took him home without thinking it through. They left him in the garage, along with two other small dogs. Months passed, and thankfully a family member contacted Animal Rescuers Without Borders letting them know the family couldn't care for, or provide for Atlas financially. Atlas still has some bald spots from a bad skin infection and flea infestation that had been left untreated, but his hair is growing back slowly. He's great in the crate, in the car, and on the leash. He loves all dogs, cats, and people, and was meant to be a cherished member of a family. Meet Atlas and lots of other adoptable dogs and cats this Saturday, May 21st, at the Petsmart in Oceanside, off Marron Rd from 10 AM to 1 PM. Visit ARWOB.org for a list of pets who will be attending, and fill out an adoption or foster application right away.

Age: 1.5 years old
Sex: Neutered Male
Organization: Greyhound Adoption Center, 4821 Dehesa Road in El Cajon
Phone: (877) HoundSavers
Website: HoundSavers.org

Bowie is an ex-racing greyhound residing at the Greyhound Adoption Center, and he's already retired at just 1.5 years of age. He arrived in January with a horrific injury to his right rear foot - the bones were literally snapped in two. After surgery and a very lengthy and tedious recovery, he's finally medically cleared for adoption. All greyhounds at the Center are fully evaluated for temperament and personality before they are profiled for a home, and while Bowie has not yet been cat tested, he interacts well with large and small dogs and would enjoy a home with older children who would be mindful of his injury. Thanks to donations, the Greyhound Adoption Center is able to help dozens of greyhounds with broken legs. Ten of their fifty residents are currently recovering from racing injuries. Most go on to enjoy full lives as family pets, as soon as they're spayed or neutered, vaccinated, microchipped, and get their teeth cleaned. Come out to one of their monthly Open Houses and tour their facility to learn more about rescue, rehab, adoption and volunteer opportunities.

Website: www.itsthepits.org

Keegan loves people and other dogs. He is wonderful and so very friendly. And did I say handsome?? Keegan is also completely potty trained, and perfect in his crate. He LOVES other dogs, he currently lives with two Pit Bulls and regularly attends daycare at Camp Run-a-Mutt. He loves to cuddle with his foster Mommy and foster doggy siblings. He's very well socialized and loves walks on the beach and having dinner at restaurants. Lucky for Keegan an It's The Pits volunteer spotted him at a shelter just hours before he was scheduled to be euthanized. Unfortunately, Keegan is one of thousands of adoptable Pitties in Southern California, so he has a LOT of competition. Plus, because we don't want these poor dogs to fall into the wrong hands, ITP has to be extra careful about potential adopters. So, even though Keegan is perfect in every way, it's a real challenge finding him a loving family of his own. Meet Keegan and a bunch of his fellow rescue buddies this Saturday, 5/14, from 10-to-2 at Petco Unleashed on Scripps Poway Parkway in the Vons shopping center where It's The Pits will be featuring adoptable dogs, as well as recruiting future foster families and volunteers!

Name: Zeke
Breed: Domestic Short Hair
Age: 4 years old
Sex: Neutered Male
Organization: Animal Rescuers Without Borders
Phone: (619) 977-3593
Website: ARWOB.org


Zeke was adopted from Animal Rescuers Without Borders when he was just a kitten, along with one of his rescue buddies. Sadly, their owner had some issues, and the cats were taken away by authorities and sent to Animal Control. After 6-weeks at the shelter, ARWOB finally has the cats back in their care, and they're now looking for a temporary foster home or permanent adopter for these sweet cats who have been through so much stress. Zeke, who is actually a very friendly guy, has taken to hiding in his kitty condo for protection. It would be wonderful for someone to give him the environment where he can feel like his old self again. If you're not sure about adoption, you could foster him and/or his brother Egbert, and decide if you want to adopt one or both of them later. At this point, just finding them a safe place to stay is most important. They are good with children and other cats. You can meet Zeke right now at the adoption center in the Clairemont Petsmart, or you can come by their Open House this weekend, when adoption fees for adult cats will be only $50. Please go to ARWOB.org for more information.

This tiny 2-pound ball of fur named Daisy was rescued from the streets of TJ where she was all alone, and she's spent the last 4-weeks in foster care until she was strong and healthy enough to be put up for adoption. Now, she's a typical happy, active and feisty explorer who would do best in a home with other cats, and even gets along with dogs. Her adoption fee includes her spay, microchip and vaccinations. Animal Rescuers Without Borders has about 50 cats and kittens available for adoption at the Petsmart adoption centers in Oceanside and Clairemont. You can find out more about the adoption centers, the weekend adoption events, and all the animals available at ARWOB.org. You can also submit an online adoption application, and find out about their upcoming Open House going on this Friday through Monday when all cats over a year of age will have a special $50 adoption fee...and they're also including all their Chihuahuas in on that deal, as well. All adoptions still include spay or neuter, microchip, vaccinations and a free vet visit.

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


Xander is a charming, social, affectionate 9-year-old Chihuahua weighing just 11-pounds. He's a healthy little guy who just had his teeth cleaned, which is a big plus for his future owner. He was brought into the Chula Vista Animal Shelter as a stray at the beginning of March, which means he's going on 3-months without a family. Xander needs someone who would enjoy going out with him on a daily walk and playing with him and his toys, while hanging out together in the house. He'll then settle down for some quality napping and kitchen monitoring. Xander gets along with most dogs and might even be okay with a cat. He'd probably feel best with kids who are at least 9-years of age. With an adoption fee of only $35 for all dogs and cats ages 7 years and above, this is the perfect time for you to bring your parents and grandparents to the Chula Vista shelter to adopt a companion. All pets are spayed or neutered, microchipped, dewormed and vaccinated. Call the adoption counselor at 619 691-5174 or Google Chula Vista Animal Shelter and check out all their pets on-line.

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

Pirate is a shy, friendly boy who came to CGSRSD in January 2016. He's a bit on the thin side, but we are working on that. Once he's comfortable in his setting, he's tends to develop a better appetite and beefs up a bit. Pirate is in training knows his basic commands. Pirate loves being petted and is OK with being brushed. You can tell that he wasn't allowed on the furniture in his past life, because he will not go on furniture unless invited. He is a submissive and respectful dog, and gets along with his foster siblings (currently a female GSD and a Yorkie). Pirate barks at cats when on a walk, so we don't know if he'd like them in "his" home. We don't know if he's ever been around kids. For a "more mature" dog, Pirate has a lot of energy. Pirate loves to play, but plays gently. He walks nicely on a leash; in fact, he LOVES to go for a walk. Pirate is crate-trained, but also sleeps well and hangs out with his foster siblings outside of the crate. He can sometimes be a bit of a "Nervous Nelly," and would probably do best with at least one other confident medium-sized or large dog who likes to play. Come meet Pirate and other Shepherds every Saturday from 11 to 2 at the Del Mar PETCO on Via De La Valle (except the last Saturday of the month). And visit CoastalGSRSD.org for more information about the Rides for Rescues Fundraiser on May 19th to help raise money to purchase transportation vehicles.

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

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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!

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.

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!

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.

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.

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.

Phone: (858) 565-2869
Website: SanDiegoRabbits.org

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

Stiltz gets along well with the other friendly dogs in her play group at the animal shelter, and she adores getting attention and affection. Due to recent changes in Camp Pendleton's base access procedures, there's been a SIGNIFICANT drop in the number of people coming to adopt cats and dogs. The public CAN still adopt from the base shelter...it's just a bit more complicated to get a base pass. To all retired military, or active duty military who have ID cards and can easily go out to the shelter: if you've been thinking about adopting, please come to Building 25132 to see if there's a dog or cat for your family. Retired and active military are crucial to these shelter animals.

He loves to hang out under his cardboard box and lounge on his fleece bed. You can just tell he knows that he's safe now.

Our volunteers love this gentle boy and named him for the black "eye patch" on his left eye. It's so cute!

Pirate Joey is about 6 years old and would probably make a great companion to a sweet bunny girl. He lived with many rabbits and at some time probably had a friend but was single when he came to us.

He hardly sheds, has a great appetite, and is very treat motivated! Taz is already neutered, vaccinated, microchipped and ready to go to a good home.

She gets along great with other dogs, cats and children. She enjoys long walks and car rides, when she can look out the passenger side window and check out the world. Eleanor would love to have another dog in the home to play with. When excited, she hops on her hind legs and chirps like a birdie. She's VERY aware of the fact that she looks cute in her outfits, and prances around like a beauty queen waiting for compliments. She'd do best with direct access to the yard, but she is housebroken and will let you know when she needs to go outside. Eleanor is approximately 9-10 years old, microchipped, vaccinated, has had bloodwork and a dental cleaning. Contact Lionel's Legacy Senior Dog Rescue for more info about adopting or fostering a dog.

Name: Rudy
Breed: Terrier/Basset Hound
Age: 3 years old
Sex: neutered male
Organization: Dogs Fur Days
Phone: 619.665.1993
Website: dogsfurdays.org

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. You just can't go wrong with this boy...please help Dogs Fur Days find him a great forever family of his own!

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!

Gina is a healthy, happy, very friendly Greyhound who ran 10 races before they realized she had no interest in chasing a mechanical rabbit. Obviously she'd rather race to the couch! She's 66-pounds, loves playing with other greyhounds and toys, but hasn't been tested yet with cats. As a general rule, Greyhounds should never be off leash unless they're in a totally fenced in area. Gina's $225 adoption fee includes her medical records, spay, dental cleaning, vaccinations, collar and leash. Operation Greyhound requires an application and home check before adoption. You can call (619) 588-6611 to make an appointment to meet their dogs between the hours of 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. any day of the week.

Website: RescueAChihuahua.com



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. If you'd like to meet Sophia, please fill out an adoption application at RescueAChihuahua.com.

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.

Website: www.pbrsd.org

Maddie is a 5 year old adorable, squishy pit bull mix, who's only about 55 pounds. She loves people and will cuddle as much as she can. She's a smart girl who learned her new name in two days. She makes everyone laugh when she gets "zoomies" and runs as fast as she can. She loves to play fetch - she has a favorite ball that she'll keep bringing back to you to throw. She loves to be pet and snuggled and is a wonderful companion. She loves car rides. She can keep up with a jogger (and has learned to run alongside a bicycle), or is happy just going for a stroll. Her foster family thinks the perfect family for her would be one that can give her lots of love and attention. She gets sad when left by herself, so she would love to live with a family who is home a lot and will take her places. You can read more about Maddie, and submit an adoption application, at www.pbrsd.org. Check the events page for upcoming adoption event dates so you can come out to meet her in person.

Sex: Spayed Female
Organization: Greyhound Adoption Center
Phone (877) HOUNDSAVERS (877-478-8364)
Website: www.houndsavers.org

Fiona is a mixed breed, approximately 3-4 years old, residing at the Greyhound Adoption Center in El Cajon. She was relinquished to GAC after being found as a stray and was identified to them as being a greyhound mix. Of course, she doesn't appear to be a greyhound mix at all, but regardless of her questionable pedigree, GAC had room and has been more than happy providing her with a temporary residence. But here she is, nearly two years later, still waiting for her forever home! FIona loves people and will sit and offer her paw for treats. She is playful, fun-loving, and eager to please. Fiona would enjoy a home with older children where she would be the only pet and have access to a yard where she can hunt bugs and chase butterflies.

All dogs from the Greyhound Adoption Center have a complete medical evaluation, are spayed or neutered, vaccinated, microchipped, and undergo a thorough dental cleaning. They are then fully evaluated for temperament and personality as well as tested with cats, small dogs, and children before being profiled for a home.

Handsome Thumper is a 2 year old Labrador, who came to Labradors And Friends with a serious break to his front leg. With the loving care of a foster family, he's made a full recovery, and ready for a forever home this Christmas! Thumper is completely house trained, has great leash manners and basic obedience training, he loves his crate and is very well socialized with other dogs. He'd do best in a home with older kids, as wee ones make him nervous. He loves the beach, pool, and being active, but also finds time to be a couch potato! Find out more about Thumper at LabradorsAndFriends.org. In addition to adopters, they're in desperate need of more foster homes in the new year.

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.

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.

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

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

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!

He gets along very well with his foster buddy Sammy and it would be great if they were adopted together but not mandatory. He's a smart boy and loves to watch his foster mom cook. His adoption fee includes all his shots and he's been neutered. We have a great video of Cole on our Website.

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.

While he eats the natural grasses and weeds in the area, he also likes Romaine Lettuce, Cactus, Dark Greens, & Bermuda Grass Hay.

Website:

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.

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

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

Umbrella Cockatoo
Age:
13 years old
Sex:
Female

Parrot Education & Adoption Center (PEAC)

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

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

Meet Spiderman...a young Gulf Coast Box Turtle available for adoption from the San Diego Turtle & Tortoise Society.

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.
