My beloved Male cat Ambrosius and I are looking for a beloved female cat to adore!

Hello! My beloved male cat (age 2 very sweet, gentle, compassionate Ambrosius and I are looking for a younger even kitten okay) female cat or kitten to love! He is a fluffy guy and we’d love a fluffy female (we love the M foreheads) to love. Of course, we’re not that shallow when it comes to fluffy or not, etc.. Brosia is eager to love a new best friend and we have too much love to give and want to pass it on to a new kitten (or young female cat) who will enjoy indoors and also enjoy the playfulness of youth and the love we have to give in play and cuddle time! ps in looking at pics below, we think Bubbles is adorable . Penny is so loveable looking, Ginger is also of interest.I don’t have the whole list but we hope to hear back for immediate consideration. Also would take in a kitten female  to foster for later adoption but prefer to adopt! Thank you ! Peace, blessings and Love Trace and Ambrosius (Brosia) Ps Ginger is also adorable! Hope to get an email!!  PS the pic of Ambrosia and I can’t begin to show you how much affection a new friend for us will reap! Ambrosius has grown much bigger since this pic but we are needing to upload according to document, even though we’re looking to adopt (not put a cat up for adoption but adopt another cat, a female. thanks again!)  Contact: traceyrsullivan@hotmail.com.

Loving senior Dog

Moose is a sweet Lab\Basset Hound mix. He just turned 8 years old this October, 2020. He is such a great dog but we have two kids, 2 years old and 1.5 months old and he is not getting the love and attention he deserves. Especially in the later years of his life. He would love a home where he could cuddle with you and get lots of belly rubs. He can be a little challenging to walk, he will bark at other dogs and can pull but if you put in the effort to correct him- he responds well. We haven’t been consistent enough and he deserves better. We will continue to pay for his food and any serious age related bills.  Contact: cassielindstrom@yahoo.com.

Beautiful Bubbles

Bubbles is a beautiful 6-year-old female long-hair black and white feline. She is spayed and microchipped, current with ALL vaccinations, and is litter box trained. She is affectionate and often talks in “paw language.” When she wants attention, she will raise her paw, and when she is being affectionate, she will sometimes pet my nose. Bubbles does not get along with other cats, so she needs to be the only cat in the home. She has a skin allergy, which is treated by adding Prednisolne to her food. I have taken VERY good care of Bubbles and love her dearly, but I recently moved and cannot have a cat where I now live. I hope you will give my beautiful girl a loving, forever home. Please Contact sandyfrary46@gmail.com.

Gino-5 year old American Bull dog mix

Hi My name is Gino! I am a 5 year old American Bulldog mix who is neutered and up to date with my shots. I am a sweet boy who can sometimes forget how big I am when I’m excited, so I should be in a home with no young children. I love to nap, cuddle with my stuffed animals, and go on walks with my person. Other dogs make me a little nervous so I would prefer to be the only animal in the house so I can give you all my love. I know basic commands but am still working on walking nice on my leash (sometimes I pull just a little). I would to best in a home where someone is home most of the day and I have a yard where I can sun myself and run around. My mom is having to rehome me due to difficult housing situation where she can no longer keep me. If you are interested in having a new snuggly friend in your life please email my mom at kaylaguerrero60@gmail.com.

Zelda

Zelda is a 4 yr old, female cat who is spayed and up-to-date on her vaccinations. Unusually small for a cat her age, exquisitely silky medium length fur. She is independent and very playful! Not quite a lap cat but will follow you around and talk to you. Her favorite toys are anything you drag along the floor that she can chase and her beloved green wool ball. Sadly I cannot keep up with her anymore due to increasing health problems, so I am looking to rehome her with someone who can engage with her the way she needs. Zelda is a little nervous around strangers and can take some time to warm up, but if given enough time and space she will come to you on her own. She may even insist on a cuddle! She mostly likes to hang out close by though watching you or the birds outside. Zelda needs a gentle, patient touch, experienced cat owners only please! A few important things to know about her: She finds the vet very scary, bring a towel and treats. She should be the only cat in your home. Her favorite flavor is duck! If she sounds like the kitty for you, please email me at: demonshornofplenty@gmail.com.

Pedigreed Holland Lop Rabbit Needs Forever Home

Hello, my name is Fuzzy.  I am an unaltered purebred, pedigreed Holland Lop rabbit and am three years old.  I am also am potty trained!  My current family took me in as a rescue when I was just a little guy when my other family thought I had too much hair for their liking.  They have been very good to me and I have had the pleasure of living indoors and playing in a rabbit run outdoors when the weather is nice.  I love salad and my alfalfa pellets and lots of hay. One night, there was a really bad fire and my family grabbed me and my other rabbit friends and I haven’t been home since.  Apparently the fire burned my home and I have had to stay with a friend of theirs that just cannot give me the attention I need.  All my other rabbit friends have found wonderful homes, but no one seems to like my beautiful hair.  Under all this hair, I am a little guy.  I weigh only 4 pound which is pretty small for a rabbit. I am looking for a family who might think I would be a wonderful therapy rabbit or someone who likes to have a pet on their lap to snuggle while reading or watching TV.  I love to sit on laps and get my hair brushed.  I am very nice, I do not bite, I do not scratch.  If I don’t get brushed, my hair gets matted and hay sticks to me and it is very uncomfortable so please be willing to do this for me every couple of days or at least once a week.  Besides letting me out to play, that is really all the help I need.    Oh, and I love kids! My family also has a three year old granddaughter who comes and plays with me all the time. Please consider me when looking for a new rabbit.  I am healthy and fun and loving.  I cannot wait to meet you.  Please contact my current mom, Janeen, at janeensw@yahoo.com so we can set up a time to meet. Love, Fuzzy

Loving Kitty Seeking Loving Forever Home

Meet Aster! Aster is a very sweet and energetic cat. He loves to play socially with his person and independently on his own. He’s talkative and will readily let you know his needs and wants. Aster was rescued off the streets of Vallejo and we believe he once belonged to someone because he is so sweet and loving, he absolutely loves people. Aster’s also social and wants to be near other confident cats, although if you have a shy kitty, he will pursue kitties who run from him. Aster loves petting and lap sitting and will be your constant loving and playful companion. We believe Aster is around two years old. His coat is soft and he’s a beautiful tuxedo cat with white whiskers and paws, and a white bib and streak down his belly. He is very handsome. Aster is a special needs kitty who is FIV+ (he will need to be indoors only) and needs to be on a high protein diet. His foster mom is currently feeding him boiled chicken and chicken/turkey baby food. Commercial cat foods gave him extreme stomach and intestinal problems including diarrhea, abdominal distention and lethargy. Aster is current on his vaccinations, neutered, tested negative for feline leukemia and microchipped. He is currently living with foster mom, Donya. If you have any questions about him or would like to set up an appointment to meet him with the possibility of adoption, you can email her at donyajo6@gmail.com. If you would like to meet Aster, Donya will make an appointment at Pet Food Express/Benicia, Cat Center. The store is practicing Social Distancing so all family members need to wear a mask and only two people are allowed in the cat center at a time, including the foster. Can you give Aster a loving forever home? He will give you much love and entertainment in return.

3 year old female American Bulldog

This is Joy and she is a very loving loyal girl. She is spayed. She has never ran away or but anyone. She does not get along with our other dog and we need to find her a home with no other dogs. She wags her tail with her whole body and loves to be loved on. She loves hikes and long walks on the beach… on the leash! Lol We are devastated to part with her but we feel it is best for all. Thank you.  Contact: strauss007@gmail.com.

Adopt my bestie.

Hi all, Unfortunately, and with a heavy heart, I am looking for a new home for my dog, Milo. Milo is the best cuddler, amazing off-leash on hikes, incredibly loyal, and has so much energy that most people confuse him for being young though he’s 8! Because he is a Jack Russel Terrier Mix, the little guy needs space to explore and run. He currently is in my SF apartment and not doing well with the space constraints (anxious all the time) and not getting the exercise he deserves. I’m looking and hoping to find a home for him with an individual or couple without children and more on the relaxed side. Milo, like all Jack Russell’s, has his trigger moments. I always say, Milo is 97% perfect, but 3% anxious. He doesn’t do well doorbells and people yelling — makes him jump a bit and show an anxious side of him. In these moments of anxiety, there have been times in the past that he has nipped. But, that’s all related to his triggers and hasn’t been a recent issue. Attaching photo’s of him and us — he really is the best 🙁 If you want to see more photos of him, my IG is @Heraldx Contact: herald.alvarez@gmail.com.

Sweet snuggly 3-year-old kitty seeking loving home

Meet Ginger. She is 3 years old. I was fostering her from a friend who could no longer keep her, and just recently discovered that I have to suddenly leave my home due to toxic mold. Though I adore her, it feels like too much to have to take care of her while staying somewhere else and also trying to find a new place to live. She was spayed and got all over her shots at the humane society when she was a kitten. Recently she got bloodwork and an updated rabies vaccine. She is litterbox trained, and she eats dry food 3 times a day with an automatic food dispenser. She loves to nap, and cuddle at night and in the morning. She likes to go outside, though she never goes far. She talks and likes to tell you all about what’s going on in her world. She loves laying by me while I am working from home, and she loves to play (I could only post one photo, but have a funny one of her waiting by her string toy for me to play!) I would love to see her go to a loving home where she will get loving attention and playtime. Please contact me: Genevieve Abedon, (802) 598-1669 – Note that I may be away from my phone with no cell service from November 10-20, but leave a text (preferred) or voicemail if you are interested and I will get back to you as soon as I emerge.

Need to find a new home for our lovable 2-year-old female cat

We are no longer able to keep Lucy, our adopted black female domestic shorthair kitty. We got her when she was a few months old in 2018. Lucy loves to run and play, indoors and out. She’s not really a talker, but she has an unusual trilling voice she uses to get your attention. While she might be a little nervous around new people, if you give her some pets and kind remarks, she’ll quickly become your best friend. She will sit contentedly on your lap for hours. She is spayed, has a microchip, and vaccinations are up to date. She probably needs to be the only cat in your house. Lucy is lively, funny, and very affectionate. It breaks our hearts to part with her. If interested, or for more information, contact: Susan (dakotasue@sonic.net) or Gary (gary@newmango.com).

Seeking loving home for Beta

Beta is a lovable house cat who loves belly rubs. He is extremely friendly to all people and always wants to cuddle. He even comes to the door when you come home! He will always come to sit on the couch just to be close – he is a true companion. He has lived with other cats and dogs before and just takes time to adjust to new animals. He is neutered and also litter box trained. Mom’s allergies have gotten exponentially worse over the last year and we are looking for a new home where he can get the love and affection he deserves.   Contact: annemelew@gmail.com.

Otis the Min Pin wants to be an only dog in a quiet home to cuddle and play

We are looking for a new home for our 3 or 4-year-old 12 lb Miniature Pinscher mix named Otis. He is a very loving, sweet little guy who is ready for long walks and will always appreciate as many pets and scritchies you can offer. He wants to be with his people at all times and is a great home-office companion when it’s quiet. He’s a big cuddler. He currently lives with two kids, 6 and 9, and two older dogs. He also lived with a young cat for about 6 months, and they played safely. He is great with our calm, dog-savvy kids. His relationship with the other dogs is more of a nervous co-existence, unfortunately. He, like most of his breed, is high-strung and reactive, and will bark in fear at at other dogs while out on a walk. We got him as a rescue, and we believe he had a very hard first seven months, leading to some problems living in a house with multiple dogs. He’s very insecure about his place in the pack, and he marks (pees) indoors on furniture to claim the territory from the other dogs. We have a set of belly bands to keep our furniture clean, and he wears them without complaint, but a trainer and vet have told us that his marking could go away if he was by himself. We love him dearly and would keep him, but he really needs to be in a home with no other dogs. He is nervous enough about our older dogs that just hearing them walk by can get him growling in fear. He is still young and wants to play but the older dogs always shut him down. When he is by himself (in my office during the day, or when the other dogs are on a walk), he is noticeably calmer and happier. We want to find him a home where he is loved as much as he is now, but also has the space and quiet to relax and be himself. His ideal home would also be with older kids, or no kids. We’ve taken him to reactive dog training classes and agility classes, and done psychomotor therapy. He has improved as he ages. Daily walks really help keep him calm, and he responds to treats if you are prepared to get his attention before he gets ramped up. If you think you could give him the calm and loving home he deserves, please contact us at adopt.sweet.otis@gmail.com
