About Cashew

You can fill out an adoption application online on our official website.Shy and very sweet Little 1.7 yr old, nine pound Cashew is a shy and sometimes fearful dog who has had difficulties coming out of his shell, but with his foster, he's gaining confidence and learning to be more and more brave as he feels safe, which is made easier with his foster sibling, a gentle Labrador.   Cashew walks well on a leash, and is house trained, he's a well mannered young pup!   Cashew is having fun in a loving foster home with a foster family who understands and loves shy dogs, he will get the time and space he needs to decompress and begin to trust the world again.  When Cashew warms up and is feeling safe and comfortable, he's so much fun! He likes to sit on your lap and keep you company, when he's feeling playful, he’ll makes the cutest little squealing sounds. When he’s feeling playful, he pounces around!  Cashew will need people who can read his canine body signals who are patient and willing to take it slow until he gains trust, who can read his body signals. He really tries to push himself to explore. 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.

You can fill out an adoption application online on our official website. Ace is an adorable, scruffy little 10 lb. havanese/terrier mix who is awaiting his forever family.  He is currently in a foster home with two older dogs and recovering from ear infections and tooth extractions. Being eager to please, treat motivated, and super smart, Ace is a very quick learner.  Once he feels comfortable, his favorite activity is cuddling next to his humans and enjoying being the center of attention. His o ther favorite activities  are car rides, walks, sunbathing,  and earning treats. He has a lot of love and affection to give. We don't know his life story but know that he is slow to trust and transition into new situations. Ace will require a patient and experienced adopter who can help him learn to trust again, and one who will let him set the pace in developing the relationship with his new family members. Once he feels safe, he will be incredibly sweet and deeply loyal.  He needs a positive environment where all of the humans can respect his boundaries.   He may be moody in the initial weeks and may exhibit fear aggression when uncomfortable or his boundaries are not respected. Ace  does not give his loyalty quickly; it will take time and patience.  He will do best with plenty of exercise. He gets along well with other small dogs; we do not know how he is with cats. Ace  is house trained, crate-trained, and able to behave while the humans are away. Although he walks well on leash, he  can be leash reactive in close quarters with other dogs and will require some additional leash training. We are including two consulting sessions with our dog behaviorist as part of his adoption package.    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.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.Gentle Girl Frodo is a 3 year old, 23 pound Beagle/Harrier mix.  Frodo is bouncy, affectionate, sweet, smart, and eager to please (especially if a treat is involved!). She is shy at first but full of love after she becomes comfortable in her space and comfortable with the person. She is energetic but calm indoors and in her crate.   Frodo loves being outside, going on walks, getting belly rubs, and being pet. She walks great on leash, though she darts when startled. She ignores the squirrels and prefers not to walk near strangers. She has never barked and when a neighbor's dog barks, she might give a quiet "woof".   Frodo is very food motivated and eager to please. She has learned "sit", "down", and "shake". She's very gentle and loves being pet and getting belly rubs.   She is a wonderful work from home pal, and will lounge and nap until it is time to go outside for a break.   Frodo currently lives with another Beagle mix, who she loves to follow around and learn from. She is a cuddler, and can be found cuddling with the other dog, sharing a soft warm bed. 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. 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.Sweet momma pup Kiya is a 1.5 year old, 53 pound brindle Boxer. Kiya is the sweetest, most friendly girl you’ll ever meet! She loves to meet new people and will go out of her way to get pets from anyone. She is good with children and adults! She’s a silly girl, sometimes she’ll flip on her belly and make silly noises and throw her toys in the air. She also loves to give hugs! She absolutely loves her treats.   Kiya is working on her house training and manners, and will need time and support to be ready to stay home alone, but she is a quick learner and is ready to have a home she can call her own.   She loves cardboard and paper - put some treats in a cardboard box and she’ll go crazy for it! She loves a frozen kong with peanut butter or wet dog food, working through a long-lasting chew toy and a great game of tug!   Walking on leash seems to be new for Kiya, but she doesn’t pull unless she sees a squirrel or bird. She can get overwhelmed from time to time and may need encouragement to continue walking. Patience and treats help when the world is a little overwhelming. 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 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
