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.Litter VMeet Betty! Betty is such a love bug. She has a squeeky little meow she uses to say "hello" or "pick me up!" She loves to wrestle with her 2 brothers, Louis and Chad, and can hold her own with their rough housing. But once she's had enough craziness she's happy to cuddle with us. She purrs whenever she's touched or picked up and seems pretty happy and content most of the time. She is very interested in her foster sisters (our 2 adult cats) and would like to play if they were more agreeable! She is not skiddish at all and seems to like to be in the middle of the action.  Betty really needs the companionship of not only her humans but another cat or kitten. She would do best in a home with another resident kitty or to be adopted along with another kitten. Typically all kittens are spayed/neutered, tested for FIV/FELV, vaccinated, and microchipped before adoption, however, due to COVID-19 restrictions over the past few months, these appointments are currently backlogged. As a result, foster to adopt options may be offered with additional agreements in place to complete all medical procedures as available, while allowing the kittens to be placed in their forever homes as soon as possible.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.Buddy...What a perfect name for this sweet yet stoic little dog.  Buddy found himself in the shelter when his owner moved to a care home because of declining health.  Once acclimated in his foster home, he has shown himself to be the perfect little gentleman, happy to stay close to his people, but not eager to be a lap dog.  As is befitting of his senior status, Buddy can be set in his ways.  No crate for this little guy - don't even think about it.  His self-designated place is sitting next to his favorite people on the couch to watch a baseball game.  He seems to prefer men but is happy to get a head or belly rub from anybody.  Buddy was debarked by his previous owner so his bark sounds more like a dry cough.  At 11 years young he will require certain eye and allergy medications for the remainder of his life.  He is housebroken and walks well on a leash, enjoying greeting new people and other dogs while strolling around the neighborhood.  He is a lovely little dog who will love you with all his heart and make a wonderful companion.  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/svpetprojectVisit 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.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 positive.  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. Jessie is a 10 year old, 45 pound female pitbull mix.  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. 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.   Jessie had a number of small lumps removed from her mammaries at the shelter, so will need to be monitored going forward with regular vet care.   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 YJune is a gentle, chill soul, who takes a while to warm up, but has a lovely purr once petted by those she trusts. She loves to play with her brother, and completely loves the company of adult cats, which she seeks out for hours long snuggles. She brings a sense of peace and elegance to the room she is in, except when she's playing with her brother. She is dog friendly and happy to be near them. June is cute as the summer day is long! June loves playing and wrestling. She can go from super high energy to taking a nap within a few minutes! It'll take her some time to warm up to you but she'll be a cutie in the corner until it happens! Due to her shy and impish nature, June would thrive best in a quieter home. She is very bonded to her foster brother Nick, who is also available for adoption! Typically all kittens are spayed/neutered, tested for FIV/FELV, vaccinated, and microchipped before adoption, however, due to COVID-19 restrictions over the past few months, these appointments are currently backlogged. As a result, foster to adopt options may be offered with additional agreements in place to complete all medical procedures as available, while allowing the kittens to be placed in their forever homes as soon as possible.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 AMaggie will melt your heart with her round eyes, that serious gaze, and her little belly. She greets you with purrs and circles around for petting and chin-scratches. She usually plays with her toy near you and will put her little paws on the edge of your chair to ask for a human lift to your desk where she could step on your keyboard and try to catch your cursor on the screen (she is too little to jump on to the desk). She loves napping near your laptop screen. She is the best coworker and su-purr-visor! She usually explores the house cautiously and stays out of trouble, while her other two siblings are engaging in some roughhousing. She loves pets but is not particularly fond of cuddles. If you want a sweet and laidback companion, Maggie is your girl! Maggie would do best paired with Maddie, her foster-mate. We are hoping to adopt these two kittens together! Prior to adoption, all kittens are spayed/neutered, tested for FIV/FELV, vaccinated and microchipped.  Adoption fees for cats/kittens: http://www.svpetproject.org/info/adoption Stay up-to-date on what our kittens 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. show less

You can fill out an adoption application online on our official website.Foster to Adopt!Mamba is a 20 month-old, 76 pound male Lab/Shepherd mix. Mamba is your favorite teenage boy - sweet, caring, funny, a bit impulsive, and a little rough around the edges, but oh so much potential!  Plus, he is so very, very handsome!   Mamba has been working on his training and socializing and already knows Sit, Down, Touch, and Spot. He is coming along quickly with his marker word "Yes!" and continues to work on Here, Stay and Off. Mamba loves to play with balls, puzzle toys, tug toys, and his humans. He walks beautifully on leash and loves to hike, visit the beach, and go for long rides in the car.   Mamba is a bit fearful of new people, but with a slow approach, time, and patience, he can overcome this fear. Once he does, his love knows no bounds!   Mamba's ideal home will love a dog with good energy, and perhaps even have another big dog or two who can show this young boy the ropes. He will benefit from continued, high quality, positive training and help learning that men are not scary. SVPP will provide the foster/adopter with training assistance and support.   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/svpetprojectVisit this organization's web site to see any additional information available about this pet. show less
