Three little kittens sitting in a tree. Pick me, pick me meowed Misty, Twilight, and Sushi. First came love, then came the crate, and now all three are sitting with me. And that’s what their forever human sang as she scooped up some forever kitty love to enjoy their very own cattery and their very own tree. Paws up to all three sisters.


Several four-legged canines have escaped this week and were successfully reunited. But not after having spent some time away from their familiar bed and wondering about their human. Please contact ARF about chipping your pet so we can reunite in a matter of minutes.


Betty is a 2-year-old female brindle, but she doesn’t know she is a bull terrier. Betty absolutely loves to walk and play. She was saved from the Anza rescue in April, and is ready for her forever home. She is totally house trained, good with other dogs, big or small. Plenty of lap time will be needed, and she is a lover of treats. She loves to frolic in the yard, and snuggle on the couch.


Tammy is a young min-pin mix, docked tail, and about 2 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 and would make a special someone very happy for a long time.


What a big boy you are Theodore. Only about 2 years old, this grey and white bundle of love is a must have for your home. He’s content to watch the world from his perch, but always welcome to your attention. Saved from roaming in the wild, he is comfortable now knowing he is safe.
