Captain Courage is a very special, approx. 5 yr old boy, 55 lb boy. He was terribly neglected and abused by someone who kept him isolated in their yard. They injured his front left leg badly and, because he did not receive treatment, his leg could not be saved and had to be amputated. Captain is doing really well as a pain-free tripod! He is in a foster home with cats and has mostly ignored them when they are relaxed. With the proper introduction he should be fine living with dog-friendly, saavy cats. Being under-socialized with other dogs but friendly towards them he can get overly excited and his actions might be misunderstood by the other dog and cause a ruckus. He would do well in a home as the only dog, and if being adopted into a home with another dog, his best match would be a calm, mature adult dog who can guide him with further socialization with much supervision in the first months. He is not at all food or toy possessive, has excellent manners and knows basic commands. Captain loves all people pretty much from the moment he meets them, including children. Captain is overall pretty laid-back, happy to hang out in his favorite spot in the house or in a nice shady area in the yard (he really enjoys the outdoors). He is a solid boy, very strong, so his best fit home would be with people who have recent experience with strong, large breed dogs, preferably with some staffie or pittie experience. Although he has acclimated very well being a tripod, due to his size, he is not the perfect dog for a family who wants to go walking and hiking for miles, but loves to enjoy the outdoors and go on easy walks - just under a mile at a time. He loves cuddling and coupled with some easy time outdoors, he will be a very happy camper. show less

“Ask not what your dog can do for you…”. Noni is not a dog that will bring you her favorite toy or wag her tail like crazy when you pet her, she is just not overly demonstrative as a rule BUT, when she cuddles up to you and sighs contentedly, or gives you a lick on the nose, your heart will swell with love for her. Noni landed in a shelter after she was abandoned in traffic at the age of 13 yrs, blind and hard of hearing, neglected and too weak to even stand. Noni hasn’t looked back since leaving the shelter. She eats like a little horse, is strong and walking again. She is in very good health overall, mobile (with some limitations) and alert. Noni is a sweet little lady who really loves to cuddle up to her people, she will sleep snuggled under your chin all night and enjoys napping in her bed with a friendly cat. She loves to have a good supervised snoop outdoors for her exercise (as well as regular visits outdoors for her pees and/or a poops). If she’s in wandering around mode indoors or you have to be away from the house for a few hours, just pop a diaper on in order to avoid accidents. She has great difficulty walking on slippery floors as her feet slide out from under her. Noni requires daily brushing – which she adores - and regular visits to a gentle groomer so that her coat does not become matted or overgrown. She has daily eye drops, and arthritis medication as needed. Noni enjoys car rides and would be happy to accompany you everywhere and, at only 12 lbs, that’s easy. If you would like to open your heart and home to a deserving and very special, sweet, senior lady, have a safe and level outdoor area (Noni can’t do stairs), and no-slip flooring or plenty of area rugs placed close together, look no further. Noni is very well suited to a home with cats but she tends to be assertive with other dogs so they have to be tolerant of her bossy antics in order to be a good fit. Gentle, mature older kids in the home would be fine. Her best fit adopters must have experience with senior dogs who require extra attention. show less

Rawley was found wandering the streets in Central California, a very sweet, shy and gentle little boy alone in the big big world. He is acclimating to life being loved and takes a little bit of time warming up, but as soon as he feels he is in safe hands he is fine. He may be cautious with strangers, but small quiet steps toward affection and closeness will win his heart. He is 8 yrs, has no health issues, and would really enjoy a quiet home with his favorite person, with a warm friendly lap or couch where he can just be next to them and be quite content. He will be a little timid on day one but will acclimate quickly within the first 24-48 hours once he knows he is home with people he can trust, ready to follow his favorite person around the home. He's a very quiet, obedient boy who wants to please and has been using a crate when alone and overnight with no problem. He would do well as someone's perfect buddy, whether it’s in a house, apartment or condo, as long as there is a private area or quiet street for his potty breaks. Rawley may not have been over loved before but he sure is ready for that loving home now and, at just 6 lbs, will be a devoted tiny companion. We think he would be happiest as the only dog in the home. He is not a big walker or hiker. Rawley is good with cats, and children over 10 yrs in the home would be okay. show less

Seal was found stray and taken to a shelter. She is about 2 yrs of age, 12 lbs, joyful with a puppy-like enthusiasm and is simply adorable. Seal has a classic dachshund body and whip tail but it’s her face that melts hearts, with her wrinkled brow and toothy grin. Despite being clinically blind, Seal navigates her foster home remarkably well, bumping into only the other dogs when they move around. She navigates stairs like a pro, feeling their depth by reaching out with her paws and knows key words so her people can assist with voice instructions. Seal must be able to trust her people to give her accurate instructions, putting her welfare and safety first so that she can enjoy a sense of freedom. She is loyal, loving, very cuddly, playful, extremely food oriented (will leap and spin in the kitchen at meal times), gets the zoomies, and barks to alert if she hears someone approaching the home, or if something new is very scary. In foster she has discovered dog beds, toys, playing with the other dogs, and sleeping in the big bed cuddled up all night with her person. Seal’s ideal home would be with calm, nurturing people who can intuit life as a blind dog, in a house with a secure and safe outdoor area with no (or safe) stairs so that she can roam and scamper off-leash. Seal would be fine as the only pet in the home with people who are home most of the time. A mellow dog tolerant of being bumped into would be good with careful monitoring or separation at meal and treat times. Dog friendly cats would also be good (can’t risk Seal being swatted in the face by an intolerant cat). Older teens who can provide consistency in safety and instructions also okay. She is not a huge fan of car rides but does well in her booster seat (her safe place in the car). She enjoys quiet neighborhood walks and is enjoying outings to new places but may need to be carried at times. She is house trained to pee pads but will go when taken outside, she may have accidents initially until she learns where she needs to go. You could not ask for a more loving or loyal companion. She is utterly devoted to her people. show less

THIS IS A GUEST POST: This cat is looking for a new foster. Sophie was originally trapped for TNR. She is a small, semi-feral cat, approximately 2 yrs, 8.5 lbs, Silver Tabby, healthy (her combo/snap test was negative). Here are notes from her foster mom who can no longer keep her due to construction in the home: “Sophie waits and meets me at the hallway door when I arrive with her meals. She greets me with a few meows and usually a little hiss because she’s still wary. After she eats she hangs out within a couple feet of me, cleaning herself, stretching, using her scratcher, and sitting on her little rug by the door while I’m with her. She will eat from my hand and especially loves Churu treats; however, she is not comfortable being touched or petted yet and will give a hard swat. She loves playing with Hot Cats catnip “sausage links” has very recently started also playing with a mouse toy on a wand. She has also begun purring loudly while she’s playing. So this is a huge step for her! She likes both canned food and kibble, eats twice a day and her digestion appears to be fine, regular every day. She’s very neat and clean with her litter box. Sophie will be fine with someone who won’t mind a kitty who initially keeps to herself. It does appear that she will warm up more with patience and time. She needs things to happen in a predictable, routine manner and is visibly more relaxed when the patterns are consistent. Since she came from a colony, we think she would do better if she lives with other cats. She hasn’t been around other cats since being trapped, except a neighborhood cat who visits with her through the security screen door. Her home needs to be escape proof.” Since she was initially intended for release back to a feral colony, Sophie was ear tipped. She must be adopted as an indoor only cat. This is a guest post so anyone interested in adopting should contact Nadia directly nadia.grochowski@gmail.com show less
