Couch surfing while my dad is in the hospital.

Hello! My name is Jessie Jane, and I am a 4-year-old basset hound-pit bull mix, looking for a home for the next 6 months while my dad is in the hospital. My dad is wheelchair bound, and I am his support animal, so I am used to going everywhere with him including on the bus, and into stores. He adopted me two years ago from the shelter, and we have been inseparable until now, and I hope to one day be reunited with him.

I am very friendly and affectionate, and I love to just hang out with people.  Since my dad and I have been apart, the big adjustment for me has been spending time by myself.  If you would be able to let me hang with you until my dad recovers, then I would not have to be permanently separated from him and rehomed. I am shy with other dogs at first, but I warm up to them.

My food and medical care will be covered, so I will just need love, attention and a place to crash.

For more information about Jessie Jane, please contact her guardian at (505) 417-7910.

Tiger
8 years, 20 pounds

We had a baby almost two years ago and are now moving out of the city and have made the very difficult decision to find another home for him.

More

We had a baby almost two years ago and are now moving out of the city and have made the very difficult decision to find another home for him. Since we brought our son home Tiger has had a hard time adjusting to being just a house cat from having been the baby of the family. He has always been a vocal cat but now that most of our time and attention goes to our son he's even more vocal - mainly in the morning (starting at 5am) and in the evening. It's causing stress and strain on the family and I've tried behavioral modifications and then finding a home with friends or family and haven't had any success. He's the perfect cat for someone who lives alone (or a few adults without pets or children), loves cats and wants a companion that's friendly, mild mannered and cuddly.

About Tiger: Tiger is a sweet, loving, gentle cat that thrives in a calm quiet environment where he receives a lot of attention (stroking, being brushed, time to cuddle on your lap, play with string, and has the opportunity to explore outside if possible). Tiger is litter trained and has never had any accidents or gone outside his litter box. He's a very vocal cat - he meows when he's in a new environment (it took him 5-7 days to acclimate to his new home when we moved 5 years ago) and he let's you know when he's hungry or needs attention. He's never scratched me or anyone that's been in our home - though he does have the need to sharpen his claws quite often so having multiple scratching posts would be ideal. He's shy when he meets new people but will generally come around as long as there's not a lot of noise/commotion and will be eternally grateful for long naps on your lap and food in his bowl morning and night.

Ideal home: One or two adult occupants (preferably female, but have seen him take to certain men as well) that do not have any other pets (he's lived in a home with another kitty and doesn't generally mind her, but prefers to have all the attention), cat lovers, lot's of love and time to give to him :)  Would be great if there's the option to explore outside for 20 minutes a day as he's a very curious cat.

For more information about Tiger, please contact his guardian at (707) 799-0238.

Aego is a very sweet cat when she in a calm adult only home.  She is a little jumpy because my daughter keeps her on edge no matter how much I try to work with both of them.  We got a second cat when we moved in to this apartment 6 years ago.  She reacted well but one day he got out and after 8 hours, when he returned home, she was not happy so she would better off in a single cat home.  She has been good around my Mom's dog. She likes to sleep nightly in my bed (on my head, beside  my pillow, or under the covers.)  She like to cuddle on my chest  and drools a lot - lol.  I hate to re-home her but we have moved several times ( WA -> FL -> CA->) and she does not travel well.  Since she is getting older, I don't wan to put her through the stress of moving to Oregon and still having a threenager to deal with.

This is Drake! He's a Minpin/Chihauhau mix. He's almost 4 years old. He's great with kids and doesn't bark much. He will alert you when someone is near or at the door which has been great! Drake makes a great lap dog and loves walks.  He's good at the dog park as well. His personality is mostly timid but likes to play sometimes and will pee occasionally out of excitement or nervousness especially if left alone too long or not taken out to potty before bedtime 9/10pm so the best home for him would be someone who's home a lot.  My family and I are gone too much now that the kids are older and he has been peeing on the carpet.  I have 4 children and a job and can not deal with this stress at the moment.  We've had him since he was 6 mo. old from another adoption agency.  His ears are very sensitive to water so cannot get them wet when taking a bath or he gets a yeast infection ( which is cured quickly with topical meds from vet which I normally have on hand).

For more information about Drake, please contact his guardian at (925) 260-3785.

Hello! My name is Jasmine and I am looking for a new home. 

I am a medium sized, shirt haired cat with tan and brown markings. I have beautiful blue eyes and I am half Siamese and half Tortoise Shell. I am about 5 years old and neutered.

I am a cat that prefers my space from other animals and small children, but I LOVE my people! I'm very independent, having grown up as an indoor/outdoor cat with lots of land to run around on. I prefer quiet companionship rather than constant cuddles, but don't let that lead you to believe that I don't like scratches and kisses. I will follow you around the house and keep you company as you do your chores, and I answer when called (sometimes). I am adventurous, playful, and curious. But please pay attention to my body language because I'm very good at setting boundaries.

My current mom loves me more than she's ever loved anything in her whole life, but she can't take care of me anymore due to her living situation. She found me abandoned 4 years ago and took me in. She is looking to find a kind couple or single individual with no other animals or small children to take me in and love me the way she does. She is an excellent judge of character, so absolutely NO BUNCHERS.
