Stormy, the white wolf mix, went for a walk, and ARF’s search team, consisting of one, reunited him in short time. Paws up!

Adopted were Pearl, our calico kitten, and Vincent, our gray and white kitten. That leaves Bo Peep and Pepper. New to the cattery, two tux kittens, 10 months old: Sadie and Carly.

Bo Peep is 10 weeks old, very playful, good with all other cats and has no fear. Even as small as she is, she will leap to your shoulders to cuddle and purr. Pepper is 4 months old, and ready to see the world. She is good with all four-leggeds, very playful, and looking for an energetic home.

In the canine world: Our Charlie Brown, the teacup Chihuahua and the last of the Anza rescue in April has found his forever home. Charlie brought a light into the eyes of his adopter the minute she held him, and we know this will continue forever. Charlie, you’re a good boy and we already miss you.

Found in Fern Valley: young unneutered male Chihuahua. Call ARF to identify (951) 659-1122.


Tammy is a young min-pin mix, docked tail, and about 3-4 years old. She is good with other dogs, friendly, and good on the leash. Lost and forgotten, she made her way to the ARF angels to find a new, safe home. Tammy is available for adoption.


Tawny is 9 months old. She loves to snuggle in her bed with a chew bone, and walk backwards on her 2 hind legs at meal time. Recently her sister was adopted and Tawny is wondering when she will get her own harness and bed too. Tawny is currently learning leash training and basic command from our very own ARF trainer, Janice.
