Ziva has lived with my family since she was born in a pack consisting of her mother, father, brother, and sister. She has been well cared for and is up to date on all of her shots. The pack has since been split up with Ziva's mother and brother moving in with me and Ziva's father moving in with my brother. I was supposed to take Ziva, but my management company will not let me have a third dog.

Harley is so full of energy and love! She just completed a 2 week board and train. Unfortunate work situations have made me have to travel and Harley is in the need of a consistent loving home that is willing to give her lots of love and attention.

She will be the most loyal companion for the rest of her life! She needs a big yard and lots of room to play. This is not the easiest thing for me to post as I love her so much, but I can't give her the life she needs and deserves as a working single mom. Please help me I'm adopting this beautiful loving puppy.

Hermione
4½ years, 40 pounds, Oakland

Hermione is enthusiastic, loving, and energetic. She loves to run around outside, and her mission in life is to keep us safe from squirrels (which she will happily chase, but rarely barks at).

More

Hermione is enthusiastic, loving, and energetic. She loves to run around outside, and her mission in life is to keep us safe from squirrels (which she will happily chase, but rarely barks at). In the afternoon she's a bundle of energy, wanting to play and romp around, and by the end of the day she loves nothing more than laying in her bed and relaxing near her family, and is content to do so for hours (though belly rubs will be requested). Hermione is smart, highly trainable, and has already had a lot of quality training (thanks, Happy Hound).

She is very respectful of boundaries when clearly set by her owners (e.g., what rooms she is allowed in and what rooms she is not). Hermione has never chewed on the furniture, or on any of our possessions (though chew toys should definitely live in fear of her wrath). However, it's important to understand that Hermione can be reactive around other dogs, especially while on leash. This has been much better since Happy Hound's training, but has never quite dissipated, and she will occasionally have barking fits and pull at other dogs when on leash.

She's got a pretty loud bark, so it can be startling. This means that it's important to be attentive while walking her. We try to keep her on the opposite side of the sidewalk from other dogs, and on narrow sidewalks sometimes cross the street to avoid coming nose-to-nose with other pups, and that mostly avoids issues. But she will still occasionally bark and pull from time to time, despite our best efforts.

We feel Hermione would do very well in a home with outdoor space for her to run around in, or with someone with an active lifestyle that would be interested in taking her on regular hikes or runs. When we briefly lived in a home with a big yard for her to play in she rarely needed walks, which made her reactivity towards other dogs a non-issue.

For more information about Hermione, please contact her guardian at (818) 239-6635.

Daisy was my Mother's cat. My Mom had to move to assisted living where she was not able to bring her beloved cat. Daisy has been living with us in our home for almost 3 months.She is an extremely sweet and loving cat, but she does NOT like or get along with other cats. (We have 2 adopted cats of our own and there has been a great deal of stress for all 3 cats and behavioral/health concerns began about a month ago).

We are hoping to find a forever home for Daisy where she can be the only cat and be loved and share all the love she has to give. She loved curling up in my Mom's lap, giving kisses and being kissed on. She is extremely affectionate and has so much love to share. Due to stress from her being separated from my Mom and being in a home with 2 other cats, she developed IBD and we are treating her for this now.

She is doing very well on medication and her system is calming down and going back to normal bowel movements now. She is on a prescription diet which has also helped her IBD. We are happy to provide monetary assistance to help pay for her prescription food and any ongoing meds she'll be on through December.

We just want to find her a home where she can be happy and healthy <3 (she has been around dogs before and was fine/no issues. She unfortunately will not tolerate other cats and it breaks my heart as we were so hoping to keep her in our family) If there are any questions or concerns please let me know. We are dedicated to finding her a forever home <3

Leo (8; Grey DLH) and Rascal (9; Tabby) have grown up together since their adoption as very young kittens. They bonded quickly as brothers and always look out for each other. Leo and Rascal would thrive best in a quiet and minimally active household with an experienced cat owner.

Leo and Rascal do not do well with any other animals and only want the company of each other. Leo and Rascal are very loving boys. Leo is the definition of a lap cat and purrs when he wants snuggles.

Rascal has always been more independent but does like the company of his owner and at times he will cuddle with you under the blankets. Leo is more slow to warm up, as he has always been timid in new situations. But once Leo establishes trust, he will love you endlessly. Rascal loves to explore new surroundings and tends to warm up quickly to everyone.

Leo requires regular brushing of his fur since it tends to become matted easily. Luckily, Leo loves his brush time. Overall, Leo and Rascal are mellow given their age. They prefer to spend their day snuggled up on their cat tree and get frisky with a laser light at the end of the day. Leo and Rascal would make a loving edition to anyone looking for a pair of senior cats who still have some spunk.

For more information about Rascal, please contact his guardian at (925) 787-6198.

Zoe
7 months old, Concord

I got Zoe at 4 weeks old from a homeless person who owned her mom. I brought her home with me to care for her and help find her a forever family/home. She is now 7 months old and has had all of her shots, including Rabies shots. She is gorgeous, super sweet and loves to cuddle. She knows how to be gentle when playing. She's been on walks and around unknown dogs and did very well socializing every time.

She sleeps on her mat next to my bed at night through the whole night then runs downstairs with me in the mornings to go outside and potty. She's also bed and crate trained overnight. She hangs out and naps in her crate without any whining or issues. 

Zoe needs a stable and loving forever family that can give her the active and happy life she deserves. My busy single mom lifestyle doesn't allow her enough running and playing time and I don't have any other pets for her to have companionship.

If you're interested, the adoption fee is $100 which includes all of her belongings I've spent money on. You may contact me on my cell and we can schedule a meet and greet to confirm if it'll be a good fit for the rest of Zoe's life.

For more information about Zoe, please contact her guardian at (510) 363-6900.
