About Nellie

You can fill out an adoption application online on our official website.A little dog with a big personality!Nellie is a lively nine year-old, six pound Min-Pin-Chihuahua mix.  She has adapted so well to being a tri-paw dog after having her non-functioning hind leg recently removed.   When she is not enjoying the sun, she can be found with her foster pup siblings,  lounging together, playing together, and eating together. Nellie enjoys rides in the car and is house trained, she will bark to let you know she wants to go outside or is ready for her next meal!  She is a good little walker & is also happy to chill on the sofa with you,  but she’s most happy when she’s being carried or when she’s riding with you in her little tiny-dog carrier sling. Prior to adoption, all dogs are spayed/neutered, tested for heart-worm, vaccinated (including rabies, if age appropriate) and micro-chipped.   Adoption fees for dogs: http://www.svpetproject.org/info/adoption Stay up-to-date on what our dogs are up to by following us on Facebook!  https://www.facebook.com/svpetprojectVisit this organization's web site to see any additional information available about this pet.

You can fill out an adoption application online on our official website.Single AdultHi there, I'm Garfield! You might not guess it from my cuddlebug personality but I used to be a big deal in the colony cat scene, scrapping and scavenging to stay on top. It was fun but I'm seven years old now and ready to meet my people and look after them in my forever home. I adore people and will happily snuggle up with you on the couch, in bed, or wherever else I see you. I enjoy all sorts of toys and will even come when called, though I might take a while if I have to wake up first. I'm also very affectionate and will follow you around the house just so we can hang out and I might give you a few headbutts whenever I see you to show my love. I still have a few quirks from when I had to take care of myself that you should know about. I can only really stand being pet on my head and face, I love that but petting me anywhere else can freak me out a little. I also have a minor medical history - one tussle or another left me FIV and my teeth aren't in the best shape. I don't think these are a huge deal but I'm just a cat so make sure you ask if you have any concerns. Prior to adoption, all cats/kittens are spayed/neutered, tested for FIV/FELV, vaccinated and microchipped.  Indoor homes only.

You can fill out an adoption application online on our official website.Loves Kids! Ginger is 43 pounds and approximately 8 years old. We believe she is a Vizsla mix, but mostly she is just a good-natured pup. When Ginger first arrived at SVPP, it was clear that she had not received proper care for a long time. Despite losing much of her hearing to benign masses in her ears, after two sets of surgeries, Ginger is a new girl!    This lovely little dog LOVES all people, big and small. Her foster dad calls her his shadow, as her favorite pastime is following him around the house and yard all day, pausing whenever she can for a good scritch on her backside. She is also up for long walks and romps with the tennis ball. Though, perhaps her very favorite activity is going for a ride in the car!   Ginger is very polite on leash and gets on well with other dogs outside of her home, especially larger dogs. Because of her difficult past, Ginger can be overly interested in food, and has a difficult time if other dogs are eating near her, so we do not think she is well suited to live with other dogs.   Ginger does well in a home with polite cats! She was interested at first, but quickly learned to give the cats their space.   Ginger's biggest challenge is loneliness. She does not like to be left alone, so will do best in a family where her people are home most of the time or can take her with them on most outings. Work with a high quality, fear-free trainer is recommended to help Ginger with this fear. Prior to adoption, all dogs are spayed/neutered, tested for heartworm, vaccinated (including rabies, if age appropriate) and microchipped.   Adoption fees for dogs: http://www.svpetproject.org/info/adoption Stay up-to-date on what our dogs are up to by following us on Facebook!  https://www.facebook.com/svpetproject Visit this organization's web site to see any additional information available about this pet. show less

You can fill out an adoption application online on our official website.Litter MMeet our kitten Ginny. Ginny loves to snuggle and she makes that known. When it is time for a nap, she will make sure there is someone or something to snuggle with. She typically demands that a human or one of her brothers is in sight otherwise she will scream and wander the house until she finds someone. She can not be left alone for more than a few minutes without being upset. She loves to play which consists mostly of jumping straight up and sideways. She likes small pieces attached to other objects and likes to bite them. She likes to talk while playing and she demands that humans play with her when she feels like it. While she is sleeping, she is typically purring and finding comfortable positions on a human wherever she can. She really seems to enjoy climbing objects such as the scratching post. Prior to adoption, all cats/kittens are spayed/neutered, tested for FIV/FELV, vaccinated and microchipped.  Indoor homes only.

You can fill out an adoption application online on our official website.Jessie is a 10 year old, 45 pound female pitbull mix. Jessie arrived at the San Jose Animal Care Center with ear infections, skin infections, and more than a dozen masses on her body. Thanks to the wonderful vets at the shelter, she got her infections treated, was spayed and had a dozen biopsies done and all of the margins were clear!   Jessie is the sweetest girl! She loves going on neighborhood strolls and walks great on leash, taking time to smell the flowers and say a gentle and friendly hello to any dog she meets, she likes to share snacks (peanut butter and apples anyone?), and rides great in the car. She is an amazing companion and loves to be with her people. She tolerates bath time just fine and enjoys her shampoo massage. She will “paw” for more pets and truly believes she is a 45 lb lap dog! She likes to be covered with a blanket for ultimate coziness during nap time. At night she sleeps very soundly in her crate and serenades with her pibble snores.   Jessie is housetrained and will benefit from being kept on a schedule or have regular access to the outdoors. As an older dog, she can not wait all day to do her business.   Jessie currently lives with a cat, but this is not a recommended forever situation. She does have prey drive and stays tethered whenever the cat is in the same area. However, with slow, positive introduction and management, she would likely do well in a home with another dog.   Prior to adoption, all dogs are spayed/neutered, tested for heartworm, vaccinated (including rabies, if age appropriate) and microchipped.   Adoption fees for dogs: http://www.svpetproject.org/info/adoption Stay up-to-date on what our dogs are up to by following us on Facebook!  https://www.facebook.com/svpetproject Visit this organization's web site to see any additional information available about this pet. show less

You can fill out an adoption application online on our official website.Meet Pumpkin or "Punkin" as he likes to be called.  He comes down from his perch as soon as you enter his room, rubs up against you and starts purring as soon as you scratch his chin. When you sit down on the floor, he either drapes himself over your lap or sits down next to you. He raises his chin for more scritches and loves being brushed all over…including his tummy. His purr never stops as he is being brushed or petted. And if you hold the brush next to him, he will even brush himself. Punkin is a social eater and has a great appetite, enjoys his kibble, but turns his nose up at any canned food. A couple friends have visited him and he warms up to new people right away. He has met his foster's resident cat and they greeted each other politely, rubbing noses. He loves sleeping in a sunny spot and has the cutest snore. Pumpkin is a special needs boy because he has been diagnosed with skin cancer on his nose. SVPP is doing additional diagnostics to determine the appropriate course of treatment. This social boy is grateful for all of the support to get him out of the shelter and into SVPP's adult cat foster program. Pumpkin is looking for a very special home, and would love to meet you! Prior to adoption, all cats/kittens are spayed/neutered, tested for FIV/FELV, vaccinated and microchipped.  Indoor homes only.
