Everyone wants the Luck of the Irish, including these pets. So kiss your Blarney Stone, follow the rainbow and find your pot of gold at ARF of Idyllwild. This is your lucky day!

Our eyes are smiling for Annie, the Chihuahua mix, and Twiggy, our declawed, gray tabby. Both have finally found their forever homes with the best pack ever. We’ll miss you both.

FOUND: In Idyllwild, a very young, very scared and very pregnant Chihuahua. Call ARF to identify (951) 659-1122.


Woof, woof! I’m Emma and I can’t wait to go home with you. No stranger to loss, this 1-1⁄2-year-old Lab mix has had to pack her bones more than once. But that won’t stop her tail from wagging at the sight of you. Shy at first, she warms up soon to enjoy a belly rub. Emma would love to throw the suitcase away and find a forever and ever home.

Abandoned in the ARF yard, Nellie is our sweetheart papillon mix. She’s had her diva day at the groomers, so get that pretty pillow ready for this pretty girl. She’ll sing for her supper, and then snuggle in for a good nap. Nellie likes a slow walk, with rest areas in between, loves food, but most of all she likes to just flash those great eyes and make you fall in love.

Only two kitties left from the Girl Scout litter! True love for a lifetime is waiting for you at ARF. Spit and Fire will bring laughter and warmth to your heart.
