Zoe
6 months old, Concord

I got Zoe at 4 weeks old from a homeless person who owned her mom. I brought her home with me to care for her and help find her a forever family/home. She is now 6 months old and has had all 4 sets of shots.

More

I got Zoe at 4 weeks old from a homeless person who owned her mom. I brought her home with me to care for her and help find her a forever family/home. She is now 6 months old and has had all 4 sets of shots. She is gorgeous, super sweet and loves to cuddle. She knows how to bite softly when playing. She's been on walks amd around unknown dogs and did very well socializing every time.

She sleeps on her mat next to my bed at night through the whole night then runs downstairs with me in the mornings to go outside and potty. She's also bed amd crate trained overnight. She hangs out and naps in her crate without any whining or issues. Almost fully potty trained, she sometimes still has accidents only in the crate when I am gone running errands for a longer time period.

Zoe needs a stable and loving forever family that can give her the active and happy life she deserves. My busy single mom lifestyle doesn't allow her enough running and playing time and I don't have any other pets for her to have companionship.

If you're interested, the adoption fee is $500 which includes all of her belongings I've spent lots of money on. You may contact me on my cell and we can schedule a meet and greet to confirm if it'll be a good fit for the rest of Zoe's life.

For more information about Zoe, please contact her guardian at (510) 363-6900.

ARF requires all dogs and cats that are up for adoption to have been spayed or neutered prior to going into their adoptive home. However, in response to the COVID-19 crisis, ARF and most other veterinary hospitals have temporarily stopped elective surgical procedures — including spay and neuter — to ensure staff safety. Therefore, it has become necessary to adopt animals out before they have been spayed or neutered.

If you are adopting an intact animal from one of our courtesy listings please consult your veterinarian regarding the availability of a spay or neuter appointment.

Shorty
7 years old, 65 pounds, Vallejo

Shorty is a 7 year old pit/hound mix and is approximately 65 lbs. He has decided that he would prefer to be a monogamous/ only dog. His current flat mates have way too much energy and are cramping his style.

Shorty is a 7 year old pit/hound mix and is approximately 65 lbs. He has decided that he would prefer to be a monogamous/ only dog. His current flat mates have way too much energy and are cramping his style. He's ball obsessed but not ball or toy possessive. He's neutered and up to date on his vaccinations. He's a big, slightly shy guy who really wants to just play ball and sit on your couch. He's crate trained but would happily jump in your bed if given the opportunity. He's a good watch dog and will definitely alert you to any funny business in front of your house. He may be okay with an older low energy dog. But definitely if he had his way he'd be the only shining star in your atmosphere.

For more information about Shorty, please contact his guardian at (415) 827-0314.

Lexi is still a baby and still acts like a baby. She's two years old. Loves to be home, loves to go walking, loves her tummy rubbed and loves attention. She's protective of her family and she loves kids. We've had her since she was 2 months old.

Georgia is a sweet and affectionate kitty. Once she warms up to you she will be on your lap, YES, truly a LAP cat! She loves her head rub and occasionally her belly. Georgia likes to cuddle while you're watching TV and sleeps on your feet at night. She always uses her scratching post, litter box and never jumps on the counters. She lets us trim her nails and we have taken her to the groomer too. She is the type to hide under the bed until she gets to know you or company is over. She is strictly an indoor cat and doesn't try to get out.

Fiji is a domestic short hair with black and white fur. To be upfront, she needs to be in a home without other animals. She is very aggressive with our dog, and this is the primary reason we a trying to rehome her. She can be very sweet, loves to cuddle, gives nibbles, but she also has some behavioral issues such as loud crying, jumping up on counters and tables, and has severe separation anxiety. She is very shy with new people but once she warms up to you she is excellent around humans. However, she cannot be around other dogs or cats, as she gets very aggressive. She needs to be updated on her vet visit and some shots, but we will take care of that prior to someone taking her.

For more information about Fiji, please contact her guardian at (959) 444-2548.

Hello, meet Maurice! I adopted Maurice in January from the SF SPCA. I am so sad to say goodbye to him, but I am moving across the country and will no longer be able to give him the care he deserves. Maurice is a really special dog and I am hoping to find him a great new home that is the right fit. Please reach out if you are interested, and I can give you more details about him (and more cute photos!).

Maurice is very affectionate and absolutely loves to snuggle and be pet. He will be happy to cuddle up to you on the couch or bed at any time. Your heart will melt when he comes over to put his head in your lap. Maurice is energetic and enjoys exploring the neighborhood on walks and loves to run around and play with other dogs at the dog park.

Maurice is comfortable around dogs, but has anxiety around people. He has made some big improvements in the time since I adopted him, and he is on daily medications to help ease his anxiety, but this is something that his next owners will need to be willing to work around. I have worked with the SPCA behavior team and a great trainer, and can share lots of information and strategies with you based on the work we have done. I can also offer some paid meetings with my current trainer.

Maurice likes other dogs, and I think he could be a good fit as a second dog in a household since he is more confident around dogs. Having access to a fenced yard would be helpful for him (but is not required).

Maurice is about 3 years old, 16 pounds, and is neutered. He is house trained and well behaved at home (no issues with chewing etc) and is able to be left alone at home with no separation anxiety.

My name is Boston, I'm a 1.5 year old, 65 lbs, female German Shepherd / ACD / Pitt mix. I've got all the energy and love of a puppy with the house manners of an adult dog. My favorite activities are playing frisbee, fetch, tug, sniff walks and snuggling with my humans. I love playing with other dogs and I have excellent dog social skills, I go to off-leash dog parks with my humans every day and have a blast! I have a high working drive so I love to learn new tricks and play games that make me use my brain.

My humans love me so much, but, we live in a busy city and I'm pretty freaked out by seeing & hearing strangers on such a constant basis. We all think it'd be best if I could live in a quieter environment to really be able to live a more relaxing life. I've made a ton of progress on my stranger danger instincts so far, but I would be much happier in a quieter environment.

I'm looking for somewhere with a lot of land, ideally with another confident dog to play with and show me the world isn't such a scary place. I also need patient humans who will continue to work on my fear reactivity using positive reinforcement training, but, no kids or cats for me! I'm crate trained, have all my basic obedience down, I'm up to date on my shots, microchipped, and spayed.

Pip
4 months old, 4 pounds, Pleasant Hill

I adopted Pip, and his brother Squeak, without realizing I was very allergic to cats. Unfortunately, the person I adopted them from (off of Facebook) does not respond or have any suggestions on rehoming them.

I adopted Pip, and his brother Squeak, without realizing I was very allergic to cats. Unfortunately, the person I adopted them from (off of Facebook) does not respond or have any suggestions on rehoming them. They are the sweetest, calmest boys, and are absolutely delightful. I have gotten them fixed and their shots, and they're both super healthy.

Dobby

Dobby is a loving, sweet family dog who is high energy and loves to stay close to his humans. He loves to cuddle, take naps with you, and go on a run or walk with you.

Dobby is a loving, sweet family dog who is high energy and loves to stay close to his humans. He loves to cuddle, take naps with you, and go on a run or walk with you. Dobby is housebroken, crate-trained and knows many commands, including sit, down, walk, run, drop it and quiet. He is fully vaccinated and healthy. He loves to play tug-o-war, fetching his toys when you toss them across the room, and loves getting pets and belly rubs. Dobby unfortunately has trouble getting along with certain dogs who are aggressive towards him and we are rehoming him because he got defensive and bit a dog who came into our driveway. A good new home for Dobby is one with two adults who can give him lots of love and walks during the day. He is good with children but should not be walked by them, because he is strong when he pulls and a child may not be able to control him appropriately with commands. If you have two adults with time to walk and exercise this loving affectionate sweet dog, you will be so happy to have him in your life!

For more information about Dobby, please contact his guardian at (415) 553-0954.
