CC

It is with a heavy heart that I and my family are asking for help in rehoming our lab mix. CC is 5 years old; we rescued him at 9 months old. He had some separation issues. He quickly attached himself to our 2 sons.

It is with a heavy heart that I and my family are asking for help in rehoming our lab mix. CC is 5 years old; we rescued him at 9 months old. He had some separation issues. He quickly attached himself to our 2 sons. He can be slightly aggressive with delivery men when they approach our home. So we are moving back east, and would like to find him a home possibly with a yard, he's an active boy. Thank you!

Streak
9 years, 11 pounds, Danville

In the warmer weather, she loves napping all morning and then going outside to lay in the sun when the day warms up.

In the warmer weather, she loves napping all morning and then going outside to lay in the sun when the day warms up. When it's cold and wet, she won't have anything to do with mother nature! In one incident, a visitor held her and attempted to pet and play roughly with her - she didn't appreciate it and nipped at him. Didn't break the skin, but she'll let you know if she's not cool with something.

Boba is a good healthy neutered male cat that needs a lot of attention. He seems to like talking to people and is used to seeing people everyday. Petting with affection makes him purr but don't force it.

Boba is a good healthy neutered male cat that needs a lot of attention. He seems to like talking to people and is used to seeing people everyday. Petting with affection makes him purr but don't force it. Boba is not afraid of being washed with minimal water usage, although at times he can be scared if you force it. Get Boba some lazer pens and he will be chasing it like it's a live insect. Boba has a strong interest in playground structural objects such as climbing towers. He finds comfort in the bed and loves to sleep next to you. Playful children will always keep Boba on his "paws". Open your shades, he loves being in the sun.

Luna is a loyal but feisty and smart cat. Takes her a little while to warm up but she likes to play. She would love a peaceful home where she is given plenty of attention - but on her own terms. She likes grown men more than women and kids but can learn to love anyone.

Luna likes to sit on laps, but she has given a quick nip (or a quick swipe with her claws that can draw blood) when people try to pet her if she doesn't want to be pet.

For more information about Luna, please contact her guardian at (925) 324-6102.

Oliver is looking to retire from his current job as shop cat. He is looking for a loving warm lap to cuddle up on in his senior years. Oliver is blind, but that does not stop him from living his best life. He has been a shop cat at TLC his entire life. With his older age he seems more skittish of all the noises and hustle and bustle in the salon. He just really needs to be in a real home not just a shop cat. He would do well in a quite home, with lots of love for him. He will sit on your lap all day if you let him.He is about 12 years old, litter box trained and neutered.

I only want the best possible home for him he is too sweet and nice to not be in a real home with someone who is constantly around to love him!

For more information about Oliver, please contact his guardian at (510) 600-1803.

ARF requires all dogs and cats that are up for adoption to have been spayed or neutered prior to going into their adoptive home.  However, in response to the COVID-19 crisis and Shelter in Place orders, ARF and most other veterinary hospitals have stopped elective surgical procedures, including spay and neuter, to ensure staff safety. Therefore, it has become necessary to adopt animals out before they have been spayed or neutered.

If you are adopting an intact animal from one of our courtesy listings please consult your veterinarian regarding the availability of a spay or neuter appointment.
