You can fill out an adoption application online on our official website. Please review our Adoption Process before filling out an application.  If you would like to try a Foster to Adopt trial, please fill out an Adoption Application.  If you are only interested in temporarily Fostering one of our rescues, please fill out a Foster Application.   Meet Aspen!!

NOTE:  Aspen will be loosing her foster family as of 11/19/20 and will return to her boarding in Tijuana if we cannot find a foster, foster-to-adopt, or adoptive family. Sadly, she isn't the dog for everyone, as she will likely need an experienced dog owner.  Her adopter will need strong dog leadership skills and they must know how to be a good observer and handler.  Aspen is not an “off the leash at the dog park” kind of dog.  She is “dog selective,” which means she is not going to be friends with all dogs, but she is also not going to try to attack them while on leash, nor bark/lunge at them when she has a dog encounter while walking or hiking.  She ignores other dogs for the most part.  Aspen’s ideal home will likely be one who is looking for just one family dog and has no cats. She does love humans!!  Although she has met children on/off leash and has at times been sweet to them, a home without small children would likely be the best for her.  This ideal home can sometimes include playtime with some dogs she considers friends.  Providing dog training from the start would be perfect and her new foster or adopter will be able to talk with her current foster to see what type of training has already been done.  Medically, Aspen is super healthy!  Even though she may be 6 years old and is happy/content with being calm, she can also be pretty active/energetic and would make a great hiking buddy and enjoys long walks.  Her blood work is great and she recently had a dental treatment, including removing her canine teeth and several other teeth that were fractured from the time before she was rescued.
UPDATE 10-31- 20:  Here is what Aspen's foster family has to say about her:'Aspen seemed to have some anxiety when she first arrived at our home and would whine by the door or in her crate or pant a lot, but with a little love and affection she quickly adjusted and learned the rules fast. She responds very well to “no” and knows which areas she’s not allowed in. She did well with formal training and learned how to not pull on the leash and walk nicely by your side, but you will need to be consistent with it. Getting her to sit off leash with a verbal command is difficult as she is not food driven and will not sit for treats. She only sits when she is on leash by your side with a gentle reminder by pulling up on the leash. Sometimes I think she does not like to sit because of her hip (you will notice she sits off to one side). She enjoys eating leaves from the garden and human food (cooked veggies, rice, sweet potato) over dog food, I think because they’re soft and easier to chew. She eats hard dog food very slowly because she is missing several teeth, so maybe soft treats and soft food would be better for her. Aspen sleeps nicely in her crate every night and will go to her crate on her own throughout the day, however she will resist if she knows you are leaving. Sometimes she will run to a corner or under the bed if you tell her to go to her place, but this can easily be fixed with consistent training on leash (when her leash is on, she goes to her place on command). She is not super destructive but has lightly chewed on a few items that were in the yard (boxing glove and yoga mat), but they weren’t destroyed or anything (again, probably has to do with her missing some teeth). She also responds well to “no” if you see her try to grab something or if you correct her for trying to chew on something.Aspen is very independent and likes to explore outside. She has gotten under the house several times by moving a potted plant that was blocking the crawlspace, so make sure there are no holes because she will find it. Several times she has also bolted out of the door when we came home, but if you chase her and yell after her she immediately stops and rolls over on her back. Despite her being a little mischievous at times, she is the absolute sweetest. Even though she likes all people and gets along great with everyone, she has attached onto me and will follow me around everywhere. She likes to sleep under my side of the bed and it has become her spot whenever I’m in bed, or she wants to get away from everyone. She is dominant with other dogs, but lives with a male staffy rescue we brought home a couple weeks after getting Aspen. He is about 3 years old and a little shorter but stockier than her. He gets along with all dogs, has a very playful attitude and they are best buddies now, even sleeping with each other on occasion. When we brought him home we made sure to introduce them in a neutral area and crate rotate them for the first day. We also had a third dog we brought home that same night, a 1-year-old large pit mix with special needs that we temporarily watched for another rescue. It took her an extra day to warm up to him as he did not believe in personal space and would often times get too close to her where she would nip at him. But with constant monitoring and quick corrections if she was being mean, she eventually allowed him into the pack although she still kept her distance most of the time. Naturally, she would get jealous if I pet any of the other dogs and would come over and sit in front of me, so if there are other dogs in the house make sure to be as neutral as possible and share the love equally.Aspen has been great with all people and is extremely friendly with everyone who has come over to the house. However she did growl twice at children when she was crated and they were running by. I think those were isolated incidents because she was upset that she had to stay in the crate and the kids were playing and screaming. While I’m confident that she can be around children, I do see her being possibly too high-energy around smaller kids.Overall Aspen has been the perfect foster daughter. She even has a secret poop corner away from our nice garden and turf, which was nice and made it easy to pick up after her. She is very swe To meet Aspen, please submit an adoption or foster application online at arwob.orgVisit this organization's web site to see any additional information available about this pet.If you would like to meet one of our animals, PLEASE fill out an adoption application.

These pups were rescued from Ensenada, in Baja California Mexico.  Their mom was rescued from the streets by a good Samaritan, who ended up deciding to adopt her.  The good Sam realized too late that the mom was pregnant and didn’t spay her in time.  The mother dog had 10 puppies!  However, 2 of the male pups were given away before ARWOB could pick up the entire crew and we were not able to intercept and get those 2 neutered before they were given away.  However, we were able to safely take in the remaining 8 pups and placed them in quarantine with a reliable foster in Ensenada.  The puppies will be coming to San Diego the weekend of December 5th!We have included a photo of the mom, who looks like a mini husky/wolf and she is 40 pounds.  We do not know who the dads are, but the primary breeds are likely shepherd and Labrador.  Only 3 of the pups have the shepherd medium coat and the rest of the pups have short hair.  At only 3 months of age and between 10-13 pounds, we believe they will grow to be in the 35-50 pound range.  They will likely not be very big for a shepherd/lab mix dog.Like all puppies, they are silly and active!  They will need an adopter that is ready to do lots of house training and socialization with both people and other dogs, which can be hard during the pandemic.
Because of COVID-19, sterilization appointments have been difficult to schedule. The pups will all be sterilized in the 92104 North Park area of San Diego as follows:Monday 12/14/2020Champ Bear Tenderheart BearFunshine BearCheer Bear Monday 2/8/2021Daydream BearHarmony BearSurprise BearWish BearThis means the pups can only be adopted to local families in the San Diego area to ensure they are able to take their newly adopted puppy to the pre-scheduled surgery appointment, and then pick them up at the end of the day after surgery.  Therefore, please do NOT submit an application if you are not local to San Diego and able to attend the appointments shown above.  If you would like to adopt and live outside of San Diego area, you are welcome to wait until their sterilization surgeries have been completed to see if the rescue you are interested in is still available.If you would like to adopt one of these cuties, please submit an application online at arwob.orgVisit this organization's web site to see any additional information available about this pet.If you would like to meet one of our animals, PLEASE fill out an adoption application.

You can fill out an adoption application online on our official website. Please review our Adoption Process before filling out an application.  If you would like to try a Foster to Adopt trial, please fill out an Adoption Application.  If you are only interested in temporarily Fostering one of our rescues, please fill out a Foster Application.   Meet Chip!Chip is an adorable small breed Baja mutt.  What he is, nobody really knows!  He has a face of a Dachshund, the body of a Whippet, but probably is a shepherd/Chihuahua mix.  He looks very unique and oh so handsome, with a long body, long legs, and already fully grown.Chip and Dale were rescued from the streets of Ensenada Mexico in mid-October.  There were reports of a couple of new stray dogs, who arrived in the neighborhood and Chip and Dale were part of this new crew.  Chip was making himself warm sleeping in an old sofa cushion and he was terrified when his rescuer approached him.  He was so scared, he peed himself when picked up.  It took a few days for him to trust his rescuer, but after a couple of days he came around and is very appreciative of his daily meals and human pets.Chip is now in San Diego and has reverted to his shyness, but within a day he was doing much better and started to trust his new foster.  It is now time for Chip to learn to walk on a leash and to go out to experience new places, as he is not used to what it’s like to be a family dog.  Chip does fantastic around other dogs and cats, with a gentle submissive, yet playful side.  He should be fine with most children, depending on their personalities, as quick and loud movements may scare him.  Chip may do well with children once he is more exposed to the things that a family dog normally has in their life.  For now he is a total gentle sweetheart and his ideal home would be one with another dog and an experienced adopter, who can help him learn the ropes.  Chip is crate trained and not a big barker.  He is already full grown and likely 1-2 years old.  Because of COVID-19, sterilization appointments have been difficult to schedule. Chip will be sterilized in the 92104 North Park area of San Diego on Monday, 12/7/2020.This means he can only be adopted to local families in the San Diego area to ensure they are able to take him to the pre-scheduled surgery appointment, and then pick him up at the end of the day after surgery.  Therefore, please do NOT submit an application if you are not local to San Diego and able to attend the appointment shown above.  If you would like to adopt and live outside of San Diego area, you are welcome to wait until his sterilization surgery has been completed to see if he is still available at that time.If you would like to meet and possibly adopt this handsome boy, please complete an online adoption application at www.arwob.org. He may be very shy during his “meet and greet with potential families, but we are confident he will come around and gain confidence.Visit this organization's web site to see any additional information available about this pet.If you would like to meet one of our animals, PLEASE fill out an adoption application.

Someone just found her as a stray in late September and her quarantine is over and up to date on all medical, so she is ready for adoption. it's hard to know what breed this beauty is because she has some Siamese coloring with blue eyes, but also some orange spotting of the calico and tabby markings. SO.... just a beauty who didn't decide what she wanted to be when she grew up!  ( ha ha!)Chula can be intimidated easily but once she feels comfortable, she is pretty friendly. At this time, we can say she is cat friendly but is currently not with another cat. She would like a home with another cat in the house. If you do not currently have a cat, you might consider adopting another Arwob kitten, teen, or adult to keepl her company. We don't know how she is with dogs, but likely will do well if properly introduced.  Please submit an application to adopt at @arwob.org Visit this organization's web site to see any additional information available about this pet.If you would like to meet one of our animals, PLEASE fill out an adoption application.

They were initially fostered in Baja and are currently fostered in two separate foster homes in San Diego, ready for adoption. Chulo, Cholo, Telina and Tobias are four siblings fostered in one home and Tina and Thomas are two siblings fostered in another. Foster update for Chulo and Cholo as of 10/17: Chulo and Cholo are the sweetest playful purry brothers!  They are very active kittens who love wrestling with each other as well as chasing a dangling toy.  Make sure you have plenty of time for hugs because they love to sit on laps for pets and purrs. They love people!'We can say that all of these sweethearts are extremely sweet... very affectionate, purr monkeys who love human attention. They are great with other cats and likely will be ok with dogs, but don't currently live with dogs. We can say they are great with children. Priority will be given to adopters who will have another cat in the home. If you are considering adopting and do not already have another animal at home, please consider adopting another kitten, teen, or adult as well. Kittens are very cat oriented. As with all young kittens, he/she would be much too lonely without a companion when you are not home. This way they will have another kitty to play and cuddle up with when you are not with them, and, as an added bonus, they will double your pleasure and fun as well!

You can also see them at the Petsmart in Clairemont at 4253 Genesse Avenue 92117, where they currently reside.  However,  you can only see them through the window until you submit an application for review/approval.  At which time we would schedule a meet and greet.Meet the 'AOC' trio!These three adorable siblings were originally rescued off the streets of Ensenada, Mexico as neonates and were bottle fed at only a couple of weeks of age.UPDATES:10/16:  Now that the kittens are old enough and have been spayed and neutered, they are now ready for adoption. This amazing trio of kittens is now in our Cat Adoption Center in Clairemont and adjusting very well after their first several days there. Our volunteers are really enjoying them and say that they are playful, enjoy the toys, wands, and, of course, climbing and hanging out on the cat tree. The minute you pick them up, they become purr machines! If  you are interested in setting up a time to meet them, please fill out an application online. If you would like to meet with one of these cuties and possibly adopt, please submit an application in order to get the approval process started! 9/7: This trio's foster family has this to say about them: Alexandria: Alexandria is such a little energy ball! She knows what she wants and when she wants it, and expects others to do it for her. If her brothers are being petted and she wanted pets too, she'll just yowl from across the room! But she is SO sweet and cuddly, and just truly loves people. Alexandria has two moods: sleep and cuddle, or play play play! And she loves to do both with either her humans or her brothers. Ocacio: Ocasio is such a sweet little boy! He loves his siblings very much, but can often get pushed around a bit, so he often prefers to cuddle with a human. He's not one to pursue cuddles, but he will gladly take them if you offer them. If you pick him up it always sounds like you've started a motor running because he purrs so loud! If you're looking for a cuddly little baby, Ocasio is your boy :) Cortez: Cortez is a feisty little boy, but he also loves people SO much. Whenever you walk into the room, he runs right up to you and stretches his little paws out to your face, begging for pets! He always HAS to be the center of attention. He can be a little ferocious with his love, but it's just because he forgets that humans aren't just cats too! He'd be great for a family willing to give him oodles of attention!   Cortez would love to be in a home with another cat in the house.If you are considering adopting and do not already have another animal at home, please consider adopting a another Arwob kitten, teen, or adult as well.

The pups will all be sterilized in the 92104 North Park area of San Diego as follows:Monday 12/14/2020Champ Bear Tenderheart BearFunshine BearCheer Bear Monday 2/8/2021Daydream BearHarmony BearSurprise BearWish BearThis means the pups can only be adopted to local families in the San Diego area to ensure they are able to take their newly adopted puppy to the pre-scheduled surgery appointment, and then pick them up at the end of the day after surgery.  Therefore, please do NOT submit an application if you are not local to San Diego and able to attend the appointments shown above.  If you would like to adopt and live outside of San Diego area, you are welcome to wait until their sterilization surgeries have been completed to see if the rescue you are interested in is still available.If you would like to adopt one of these cuties, please submit an application online at arwob.orgVisit this organization's web site to see any additional information available about this pet.If you would like to meet one of our animals, PLEASE fill out an adoption application.

If you are looking for a kitty to share a home with a gentle, cat loving dog or adult cat, she just may be the cat for you!  Although she loves humans and craves attention from people, she also needs a furry friend because she would not be very happy as a solo cat'She has been in several foster homes and her foster moms have this information to share about her:Current foster October:She has been with her new foster family for this past month. When she first arrived, she was quite timid and shy, being in new surroundings and would hide under the bed, but, now, she has become a full fledged foster family member and is enjoying being out and about in the house with her family. She is a darling girl who is very cuddly and affectionate and 'makes bread' on you all the time and purrs very loudly. Jazmine hardly ever meows, but when she does, she sounds like a squeaky toy. Jazmine loves to cuddle up to you and lean against you when you're watching TV or sleeping. She'd love a home where she is allowed to sleep on the bed with you. Jazmine LOVES dogs! She is in a foster with Olive, a cat friendly greyhound, and Jazmine adores her. She follows the dog around and always rubs up against her and tries to snuggle with her. Jazmine would love a home with a dog friend, but you'd have to have a very mellow and passive dog because Jazmine can get annoying and clingy with her dog friends, so when not home, we are sure to separate them just in case Jazmine unknowingly makes the dog angry and she snaps at her, which has been known to happen and is why they are only together when supervised. Jazmine is very neat and tidy in her litter box and has never had an accident. Jazmine also loves to play with toys and can entertain herself all around the apartment when she gets the 'crazies' which is once or twice a day and chases her toys all over! Anyone would be lucky to have Jazmine as their cat - she is awesome!  Her previous, long term foster shared the following: In her foster home, Jazmine loves to cuddle up with the senior cats in the home and acts submissive to them and looks up to them for guidance. She can rub against other teens/kittens, but doesn't necessarily play with them. She can also do her typical hiss and swat (like many cats do) when she meets new cats for a couple of days, but only sometimes!  Jazmine has been in a foster with adult cats and dogs and she is a little 'spit fire'. She is ready to rock and roll, but quickly fizzles out when you tell her to not start anything. She then starts to play on her own like a complete kitten and you should see this girl play! Its the cutest, funniest and most rewarding treat seeing how this young adult cat (who could be a little younger than the estimated age because she is missing some front teeth and just had a rough life surviving the streets, probably having litter after litter) can enjoy herself. She is goofy, silly, and too cute to see hopping around like Manx kitties do. She is a total lap cat and purr monkey although she can also have her isolated and independent times. She is a very clean girl who uses her box without a single accident. She is a spunky littly bunny who bounces and pounces playfully chasing balls and ball toys are her favorite!Orignial Posting::Meet Jazime and Jazzy!!This mom and daughter duo are the cutest little things. Found in the streets of Tijuana, this poor mama cat only had one surviving kitten who was approx 6 weeks old when rescued in January. They were rescued and had ringworm and parasites. After treatments and being caught up on medical, they were finally up for adoption. Jazmine's baby, Jazzy has found her forever home and now it is Jaamine's  turn!If you are interested in adopting this beautiful girl and giving her the home of her dreams, please file an adoption application online at arwob.org.  Visit this organization's web site to see any additional information available about this pet.If you would like to meet one of our animals, PLEASE fill out an adoption application.

You can fill out an adoption application online on our official website. Please review our Adoption Process before filling out an application.  If you would like to try a Foster to Adopt trial, please fill out an Adoption Application.  If you are only interested in temporarily Fostering one of our rescues, please fill out a Foster Application.   Lola is an adorable small GSD mix who was rescued in September 2019 from the streets of Tijuana, while tied to a post. Lola was fearful when she first arrived in a dog kennel for transport and was very scared.  She didn't hesitate to try to bite, so we did what we always do when we have a dog who is scared and can be a fear biter. We gave her space and she came out on her own to explore, and after a few minutes slowly adjusted and trusted a couple of selected volunteers. Lola was fostered in Mexico with her original rescuer for a long time until she was able to find a foster family who took her in on a foster-to-adopt trial.  They knew this girl would need dog training because of her uncertainty with some people and dogs. The couple that took her were first time dog owners in a condo setting, who would need to walk her daily. They did sign her up to dog training classes, but as time progressed Lola became protective of them and they were not the right family for her.  They were not able to control her on leash walks or when people would come to their home to visit. As a result, they only fostered her for 4-6 weeks. It has been about 6 months since that foster experience and for the past 4-6 months, she has been fostered in a home with a yard, one handler/foster, and several other cats and dogs. We can say this about Lola:1) Ideally she needs an experienced dog owner, who understands how to be the leader of the pack. Lola is a pretty great, easy dog, but NOT if she senses no leadership. 2) She is a young, healthy, and up-to-date on medical.  She is almost 2 years of age and about 40 pounds.3) She is crate trained, house trained, and rides well in the car. 4) DOG interaction:  Lola does well with all puppies and all male dogs. She does well with female dogs, BUT if they are females like her with a potential dominant/alpha personality, there could be issues.  In that case it may be a rough or slow introduction, instead of a “let's all be friends and play” type of interaction.  It could be more of a 'I will ignore you, but if you start something with me, I will also continue something.”  In that case, there will be just a few dogs that she will not get along with, but for the most part she does very well with most dogs.  If Lola is being naughty or planning on starting to be naughty, her handler/foster/owner will need to be observant during introductions so they can quickly stop things from escalating by verbally correcting her.  When she is corrected and told to stop, she will immediately listen and will go do something else.  This will only be for the first few hours of meeting another dog with a strong personality.  After a day or two of being around that type of dog, she will ignore/forget the personality differences they had with each other.  HOWEVER, when it comes to recourses like toys/treats, she can share when she is in the mood.  But she will sometimes refuse to share with any dog personality/age/breed when it comes to toys/treats, so she needs to be supervised and corrected before anything gets started. 5) Lola loves cats and cats seem to love her!  We mean INDOOR CATS, because she can have “prey drive” with birds, squirrels and cats in the yard.  This is not severe, but she can chase them, which can turn into something else.  A home with indoor/outdoor cats would NOT be well matched for this girl.  Lola has many indoor feline friends from ARWOB, from kittens to senior cats. If the cats ignore her she ignores them, if the kittens try to play with her she loves it. 6) Lola is not a big barker and stays home alone very well, although it’s best if she is not aware that you have left the house, so her not hearing the car coming and going would be best.  On a vocalization level, we would put Lola at 3 (with 10 being the highest).  She can whine when left home alone, if she sees you leaving her.  But if she is in her crate in the bedroom when you leave or in the yard for a short period of time, she could care less and does just fine.  She is not a barker when in the yard or inside the home, UNLESS someone she is not “feeling” approaches.  Sometimes people will walk their dogs near the front yard and she could care less about them.  Sometimes the UPS driver will make a delivery and she will ignore this.  But other times she will BARK and protect her property like any other BIG dog (i.e. German Shepherd protection).  She can be easily corrected if you are there to call her back, but this could mean she could be a liability if left unsupervised in an area where different people come and go.  Some people trigger her instinct to “protect her home.”7) Lola does well on leash walks for the most part, with minimal pulling and dog reactivity.  But on occasion, she will sometimes get on high alert and start pulling more than usual.  She is easily corrected when she starts pulling and/or barking.  This is where a knowledgeable adopter comes in and as long as they take the leader role and correct her when this happens, it can be corrected quickly.  Her handler will need to be aware of their surroundings when taking her on walks to make sure nothing is out of control, so she can be immediately corrected.8) Lola does not live with children now, but she did live with kids when she was in Baja, Mexico. She does see kids and has no problem with them. 9) Lola is an excellent exercise partner and a napping partner. She can do both like a pro! 10) An adopter for Lola will need to ENROLL her in dog training with a behaviorist for evaluation on DAY ONE before taking her home.  They will need to make sure she does not revert to her old behavior from when she lived with her foster family in Mexico (i.e. over protective and spoiled).  Behaviorists stress the importance of DAY ONE evaluation to get the family started on the right path.  If an adopter has a behaviorist/trainer that they have worked with or have experience, that is great.  However, we must stress that this needs to be BEHAVIOR training, not just general training commands like sit/stay/down.  We are in no rush to move Lola since she is EASY PEASY for her current foster mom and does not demand anything, nor get into trouble in her foster home.  Her foster mom finds she is an easy partner to have at home.11) We are ideally looking for a foster-to-adopt trial for Lola of approximately 2-4weeks, before we finalize her adoption.  We are happy to lend a crate, leash, etc. to get her started, but we will not cover the fees for dog training during the foster-to-adopt trial. The only thing we could approve is a weekend stay with Lola, so her potential adopter can get to know her a bit.  Then the potential adopter would be able to decide if the foster-to-adopt trial would be feasible and if paying for training services is something they are willing to do. You can email us at animalrescuers@sbcglobal.net with any additional questions about Lola.
