Several four-leggeds decided to venture out on their own this weekend, and most have been reunited. Paws up to Sammy the Rhodesian ridgeback mix, Shelby the black Lab, Truffles the Rottie mix, Susie the blonde Lab and Tank the Lab/pit puppy.

We still have a female Pomeranian mix, found in Garner Valley area. Please call ARF with any information.


It didn’t take long for Sweet Pea, our Maine coon mix, to flash those diva eyes and find her “furever” home. And with a canine friend, just like she wanted.

Sugar and Rudi, the little Girl Scout kitties have been spoken for. That only leaves three kitties. Spice, Spit and Fire are still available for adoption.

Could you be looking for me? Twiggy is a female adult grey tabby, declawed and looking for you. She lost her loving human, and waits patiently for that special someone to take her home. Twiggy prefers her own castle, or to share one with another declawed feline.

And Lulu is back. A young Lab/shepherd mix, she is good on the leash, learns commands quickly, and likes the canine crowd. Lulu prefers not to share her kingdom with felines. She was abandoned by her owner and is certain that another energetic, Frisbee-throwing family will walk thru our doors and say “Let’s go home, Lulu.”
