Hurray, Amadeus. He was lost for just a bit, and is now home with his very worried human pack. Missing is Sophie, a Belgian Shepherd Malanois, near the State Park on Highway 243. Found Sunday: three dogs near the transfer station. Call ARF to claim, (951) 659-1122.

Tippycanoe, Tyler II, Tutti Frutti, Teddy Bear and T. Rex: three males/two females. Come to ARF and get your kitty love! They will be ready for their new adventure into your home in a couple of weeks. Hurry, these bundles of fur won’t last long. They are all 8 weeks old and properly trained by a very good mama who has been adopted.


Happy birthday to you, happy birthday to you, happy birthday, dear Charlie, happy birthday to you. Charlie celebrated his very first birthday June 1. He is a male Jack Russell-mix in love with life. And life to Charlie is all about playtime, walks and toys. Charlie had only one birthday wish: to have his very own bed, humans he could call his own, and a forever and ever home. He is such a good boy and cannot figure out why he is still alone. He’s a small package, doesn’t eat much and never barks. Maybe he’s part Basenji. Charlie knows someone out there needs him as much as he needs them.
Oreo and Sandy

Oreo and Sandy love the morning sun. Both are about 2 years old and get along just fine with most other four-leggeds, cats included. Oreo is a male black Chihuahua/Boston terrier-mix. He currently is in training school, and has only earned As. Good boy, Oreo. Sandy is a female tan Chihuahua/Jack Russell-mix. She will greet you each and every day with her favorite toy in her mouth, ready for play and love. Both are available for adoption to a home with plenty of sunshine and love.
