Gizmo is a spunky 4-year-old, Boston Terrier currently living in a busy home in Petaluma that recently added a baby. She has shown difficulty adjusting to the new baby and is exhibiting resource guarding. Her guarding recently manifested in a bite to our niece when Gizmo was chewing on a bone in the same room.

Gizmo has been a loving dog and a cuddle buddy on the couch. She loves long walks and is very friendly when meeting new people. She takes frequent trips to the dog park and largely doesn't engage with other dogs, instead preferring to chase birds and run around. She has never had a problem at the dog park or while boarding, but has lunged at other dogs while on a leash, and/or when in her own home and other dogs have come over to visit.

For this reason, we believe she will do best in a quiet, single-dog home, without children. She will need an owner that is willing to train her to better handle her resource guarding tendencies.

When we first adopted Gizmo last November she had seizures, but those have stopped since she has started taking phenobarbital. She takes one pill with each meal.

As you can see in the photo she only has one eye, which she lost when she was very young and was bit in the face by a large dog.

Priscilla is such a sweet cat that wants some love, but mostly wants to roam! She is playful and friendly with our 13 year old dog and 3 young children. She has been with us for 4 months and unfortunately, our yard is just not big enough for her. She would love a vineyard, a farm, and a larger property to stretch her legs. She is fully vaccinated, fixed, and ready for you!

SEVERE RESOURCE GUARDING
Rio can be super sweet but has recently exhibited resource guarding of his owner (me). He has bitten 3x in 3 weeks so I do not want to sugar coat what you would be adopting. He will only be released to a family/people who can handle the maintenance/training needed for resource guarding as I can’t. He is 10 months old and an Australian Shepard/collie mix. 40 lbs. I have tried multiple rescues and they can’t take him as he’s a liability. I am being faced w humane euthanasia but am trying to find an alternative if someone can take on his case. Let me know thank you

Trapped as a stray, brought inside to reacquaint with humans. He was so skinny when caught, but he is making up for it now and eating very well. He was a family pet at some point in his life. He is extremely loving, sleeps on bed and always uses his cat box. He throws his body down next to me for love. Sometimes he gives love bites, but I am correcting it and it is rare now. Awesome personality, playful, fun…and he smiles!

He is probably best in single cat home or with experienced multi-cat owner and indoor/outdoor eventually. Neutered, partial vaccination and chipped through Pets Lifeline.

I’ve owned cats my whole life and he is super cool and very special. I can’t keep him because I have four difficult pets already. This little guy has stole my heart, but he needs a forever home. He will make an incredible pet! His story is waiting for that happy ending with a loving family.

Chickie has been with us since she was 8 months old and is now 3. She lived in a house with another cat and three small dogs. They were all territorial and tended to pick on her, but she remained sweet, and is pretty independent. She is sweet when you engage with her, and she will come up and rub on your leg, sleep near you on the couch, and likes interaction, but is not in your face wanting to chat constantly (although who knows if she ends up in a single animal home!). We recently had a baby who is allergic to her, so we need to re-home her ASAP. She is adorable, very healthy, litter trained, goes outside a little bit, but prefers indoors, and will be a great addition to your home!

Hello!

Kiki is a wonderful cat up for adoption. He has been with his loving owner, my mother Lynn for the past 13 years.

About Kiki:
He has lived with a single, elderly parent, who lived alone. He is not good with kids and has had limited exposure to other animals, and would hide in a closet if a dog was to enter the room. For the past year he was mostly indoors with the shelter in place, but my mom would take him for a walk each day on a leash to the apartment back yard. Previously, he lived in Cloverdale at an apartment complex and would go outside freely, not going very far and come back when hungry.

My mom had to move to assisted living in Boyes Hot Springs Sonoma. She is really sad she can no longer have Kiki and was wondering if anyone in the area might want to adopt Kiki in the hopes she might see Kiki again somehow.

We know this is an unusual request, but if there was a new owner willing to let Lynn see Kiki somehow in the future that would be a miracle.

We totally understand if this is not an option and are open to speaking with anyone who wants to adopt him.

Kiki is fully up to date on all his shots and in good health.

Thank you!

She's very sweet and loves attention and cuddles. She is afraid of dogs and doesn't get along with many other cats. My house is very busy and she is spending most of her time hiding in a corner because I have a dog. I want her to have a better life, where she can be the only pet and have someone to love her always.

Hello, I am looking for a loving new home for my cat Melvin. He is an 11 year old black shorthair male, who is micro-chipped, neutered, healthy, and litter box trained. He has been an indoor cat his whole life, although he has been outside on a few occasions. He has not been around dogs or other cats, but think he could adapt and warm up to another cat after some time. Very sweet and would do best in a home with someone who is home a lot and would like a companion. He likes attention and is friendly, loves to sleep, very curious and playful, loves to cuddle on his own terms, and has a very soft coat. He loves to lay on his back upside down, and also will follow you around the house. He has a tendency to scratch and needs scratching posts. He does not like closed doors if he knows someone is behind them, and will meow at the door to be let in. He will want to sleep with you, and loves to lay on beds, couches, and windowsills. I’m looking for a new home for him because I’m not home enough to give him the attention that he needs and deserves. Melvin could bring someone lots of joy, and I hope to find the perfect new home for him.

My cats name is Levi. He’s 10 months old. Has current vaccines but has not been neutered yet. It’s just him and I in my home but he loves visitors. He’s very sweet and affectionate. Is mostly indoors however he would love to be outside as well. Due to a Covid financial situation I had to move and could not find a home to take him with me which breaks my heart. Fully litter box trained with no accidents. Very playful and a talker.

We have a wonderful husky/akita/shepherd mix here at the shelter who will need an adopter who is breed-experienced. Arlo is available for adoption at the Humane Society of Sonoma County in Santa Rosa, CA and any interested adopters can call our front desk at 707-542-0882 to find out more!

 

Arlo is a super handsome boy, about 1.5 years old. He's neutered, healthy, up-to-date on all vaccines and heartworm negative. He LOVES other dogs and has done well with both large and small dogs. We think he'd do best in a home with a well-mannered and confident dog to help show him the ropes. He is a goofy boy who loves life, and really enjoys engaging with his friends, either in a game of tug or a peaceful moment soaking in the sunshine. He is also a lap dog and extremely cuddle oriented. And did we mention he's gorgeous??

 

Arlo will need slow introductions to new people and places. He is skeptical of new things and people, but given space and time, he will warm up and be your best friend. He must have a predictable and calm home life. The "rule of three" should be taken seriously, with no expectations of him settling in immediately. Daily long walks/hikes and a secure fenced backyard are important because he loves to run & exercise. No apartments/condos due to his exercise needs & environmental sensitivity. Plenty of mental & physical enrichment will be key to a successful life with him.

 

We recommend no children, due to the fact that Arlo can get jumpy and mouthy when he's excited. He will need adopters who are able to use positive reinforcement to show him other options.
