Hello my faithful subjects. My name Is Queenie. I'm a gorgeous 4 year old house panther with a luxuriously soft coat.
I have lived with my current human for about 2 years now, and it's been fun, but it's time for us to go our separate ways. No hard feelings though, it's how life goes.

A little bit about myself~ I'm a people person. I love people. And they love me, cause who wouldn't? I'm affectionate, loving, and I'm always down to gossip darling. I'm also very playful! Don't let my thick physique fool you, I LOVE to exercise. String toys, mouse toys, actual bugs, anything really! I love to move around and feel the burn!

Once I mellow down from my daily exercise, I love to wind down and cuddle with my chosen person. Are you watching TV? Reading a book? Playing a game? I don't know much about those things, but I'm happy to be with you while you do them, and I'll lull you to sleep with my harmonious purr.

For more information about Queenie, please contact her guardian at (702) 689-5275.

Maggie
7 years, 11 pounds, Oakland

Maggie is a 7-year-old domestic shorthair /Tabby with White. She is 11 pounds, neutered, microchipped, up to date on shots and in good health.

Maggie is a 7-year-old domestic shorthair /Tabby with White. She is 11 pounds, neutered, microchipped, up to date on shots and in good health. Maggie is not a "lap" cat, but she likes to be in the same room or on the same sofa with people. She likes to be petted. Her coat is super-soft. Maggie is very kitten-like. She likes to be played with using her favorite toys. Sleeps a lot during the day. Maggie prefers to be indoors though she is okay outdoors during mild weather. When she wants to go out, she will let you know by standing in front of the door and talking. She is a favorite of many of the neighborhood kids and dogs. She does not get along with our other female cat who is aggressive towards her and has made her anxious. She is fine with our older male cat who she has lived with since she was a kitten. Her current home is not optimal as a result. We would love to keep her if not for the difficulties with our other cat. She would do better in a home with no other cat. She would be tolerant of a well-behaved dog in the home, but she would probably be happiest as a single pet in the household.

For more information about Maggie, please contact her guardian at (510) 846-1973.

Sadie is a 12-year-old domestic shorthair /tabby. She is 8 pounds, neutered, microchipped, up to date on shots, and in good health. She is smart, alert, and very sweet. She has very good litterbox manners. Sadie was an indoor cat for many years when she lived in New York City. She is now an indoor/outdoor cat since moving to Oakland a few years ago. She loves to be outdoors during the day but sleeps inside at night. She is a little nervous around new people but is a lap cat with her owner. Unfortunately, she is aggressive with other cats, especially female cats, and she does not get along with our other female cat. We would love to keep her if not for her difficulties with our other cat. Sadie can be playful and likes to play with cat toys. She was shy around people when she was younger but is more social now. Sadie would probably not be good with small children and other cats. She might be okay with a gentle dog, but she would probably be happiest as a single pet in the household.

For more information about Sadie, please contact her guardian at (510) 846-1973.

Playful and loyal puppy

For more information about Grizzly, please contact his guardian at (415) 947-9904. 

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 and Shelter in Place orders, ARF and most other veterinary hospitals have 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.

Dex is loyal and wants to be your companion. He is also patient, smart and sensitive. Dex goes on twice daily walks, but also rests quietly at home during the day. He is trainable if you want to teach him tricks. He matches the energy in the home and if all is calm, so is he, if children are running and yelling, he does also. An overall super sweet and devoted companion. He can be protective and nipped a couple of times at male visitors. No broken skin. We have since trained him to go to his bed when company comes to the door.
