Reunited this week after going on a little adventure were Jezabelle, Noodle, Soup and Nugget.

Missing is Max, the Chihuahua mix from Jameson area. Call ARF if seen (951) 659-1122.


Bosley, the doxie, has new sweaters, a warm bed and will never be left alone again. Freya, the Chihuahua-Basenji mix, is on a sleep over for a trial home. Paws up, Freya. And Guido, the papillon–long-haired-Chihuahua mix, may soon have his Christmas wish also. All three kittens, Sunday, Stitch, and Jerry have meowed their way into loving homes. And our beloved Monty, the white wonder cat is with his friend Mina again.

This is the greatest wish for any animal that is in a shelter. Please consider giving a warm forever home to our many cats and dogs.


Betty is ready to sit under your tree. Saved from horrid conditions, she is about 5 years old, loves to walk and she is great with all other animals, large or small. Betty is a brindle mix with a heart of gold that matches her coat. She loves sweaters, treats, and companionship. She is good on her own too. You will find her waiting for you with a smile, and good energy.

Listening to you is Oreo’s favorite thing to do. And wearing sweaters of course. How could anyone simply pack up and walk away without Oreo? His heart was broken and he shivered in fear. So he is a little shy at first, but once he hears your familiar voice, this little male Boston terrier-Chihuahua mix will twirl and dance like there’s no tomorrow. Crate-trained, good with other dogs, and is OK with the feline crowd, too. Lets try to give Oreo a happy New Year.


Mimi is a young female chocolate Burmese-Siamese mix. Very affectionate, not vocal, and still likes to play a bit.
