After spending several days lost and out in the cold, Nala, the pittie puppy, has been reunited with his very worried owners. Cinnamon, the chocolate Lab-mix, went for an overnight adventure as well, and now is safely home with her pack. And Hairy, the terrier had spring fever, frolicking in the streets without a care. Paws up to you all for being reunited.

Found and available for adoption: female guinea pig. Call ARF (951) 659-1122.

Teddy Cooper, the Pomeranian, is in her forever home, complete with diva days, pillows, and love. Nellie, our abandoned papillion mix will put all that behind her now, as she wiggles her way into her new pack. And Miss Kitty, our senior resident at ARF can now be found purring in her favorite spot with her own special human.

And that leaves Reily. Reily’s bags are packed, bones included, and she is ready to go. A true hiker’s dream, Reily has great energy on the trail, and on a leash. Hide and seek is her favorite game, whether it’s with a rock or her favorite toy. Reily’s focus comes naturally, and everything else she learns is just gravy. In the bowl, that is. She is a 3-year-old shepherd-mix, a loyal companion, and a good watchdog. With consistent training, and a calm stable environment, she will be an energetic addition to your home. Optimally, she prefers to be the only canine, and felines are not her favorite. She lives to hike, retrieve, walk and swim. Smart, trainable, she is just in need of an understanding patient human.

Missy, Emma and Lucky are also available for adoption.
