My Mimi and Hooch

Found: Almost all black male cat near Fireside Inn in Idyllwild. Blue collar. Please call ARF at (951) 659-1122 to identify.

Abandoned on the ARF front porch in a cardboard box, alone and afraid, was a beautiful female Maine coon tabby mix we are calling Sweet Pea. A soft mixture of gray, black and white, she will be available soon for adoption. A reminder: It is against the law to abandon your animals. Without a medical record, we have no record of prior vaccinations and rabies shots, which could result in over inoculation.

Hunny Bunny
Miss Hunnie Bunnie needs a home. She is a 3-year-old chiweenie that is friendly with cats, canines and humans. With bunny ears, Hunnie is sweet as nectar and loves to ride in the car.

Leonardo is almost 2 years old. Always open to new friendships, he will bravely welcome any four-legged creatures that walk through the door, canine or feline. He knows no enemies, as he makes sure all the new orphans at ARF are accepted and safe. A sleek, short-haired gray, Leonardo, along with his siblings, lost his mom shortly after birth. One by one, his brothers were all adopted. He chose to pass it on, becoming Mr. Mom to Dawn and Dusk, two kittens who also lost their mom and were living under a house. Leonard is a one-of-a kind furry friend who is at his best consoling and loving other cats and dogs.
