Charlie Brown

Yes, I am looking at you! ’Cause I think I want to do my happy dance and jump right into your purse.


Need a couple lumps of sugar for your teacup? Well, Charlie Brown is a teacup Chihuahua and has all the sugar you need.

Snuggle him in your arms or in your purse, walk on the leash to the coffeeshop, and watch his magic as he wins everyone’s heart. The best performance is at mealtime when he dances and twirls for his food, as he has practiced for so long to perfection.


Part of the Anza Gang Rescue, Charlie is good with other canines and felines. Come to ARF to visit him, but beware, he will dance his way right into your heart (and purse).


Looking for the perfect cat? The softest pure white fur, and sky blue eyes make Monty a joy to come home to.

His favorite pastime is snuggling in his cat tree and watching the world. Never a meower and litter box trained, you’ll hardly know he’s there.

He always welcomes the human hand for a neck rub, especially before meals. He is a lover of anything “fishy” in his bowl.

A bit of a loner, Monty is good with other cats, will tolerate the canine crowd, and even has shared his meal with kittens. Monty is 5 to 6 years old, and although his eyes show sadness for losing his human, he is forgiving once you touch him. Please give Monty a home so he can show you his love.

Lacy has paws outstretched ready for your attention. A beautiful female tux good with other cats, dogs and kids. Come to ARF to visit Lacy. She even likes to play catch!


We have several kittens at ARF and a border collie coming in on Tuesday.
