Found: a chow-mix, maybe. A puppy — very young. Call ARF 951-659-1122.

Four paws up to our Tammy girl, the min-pin/chi-mix. Your good manners caught the attention you needed to find your perfect human. We just know you will be spoiled to death in a forever and ever home, as it should be. Yay for you sweetie. And Meatball our kitten abandoned on the ARF porch will have her forever home, too, this week.


This young guy is ready for some snow. Archie is a miniature Alaskan Eskimo with maybe some Schipperke thrown in. He loves to walk, go for rides in the car and be near his forever human. Archie needs a balanced, quiet home with someone who will love him throughout all the seasons. Archie has been in training, and is no longer a barker unless he wants to alarm you. He is so very relaxed and willing to make you happy. And what a gem at the end of your leash. He has attended several events and portrayed excellent manners with humans and other four leggeds.

The Hemmingway Brothers, Ernie and Wilson.

The Hemingway brothers are the new boys on the block. Ernie and Wilson are polydactyls. However, Ernie is a poly on all four paws. Very rare. They are 6-month-old kittens who still need some socialization to respond to the human touch. Ernie is friendliest among the two.

We have several adult cats in our cattery, too. And a couple of kittens.

ARF has many cats and dogs available for adoption or fostering. Go to and click on Petfinder. There is also a link for Facebook, too.
