If you are ready to adopt a dog or a cat, here are the ones currently available. All those available for adoption are currently in foster homes, so their foster parents can provide more information about the personality of each animal.
This little cutie appeared at one of our volunteer’s house. Is too young but soon will get vaccinated and fixed, Is a very sweet male who is used to other cats and a small dog. Loves to cuddle to its step brother and humans too!
On January 20th, 2015, we rescued three chihuahuas. One of them – and the only male – was rescued by Janiel, one of ARF’s volunteers. Janiel saw when this cute chihuahua was dumped in front of the high school and quickly went over there to rescued him; he named him Thomas. Thomas is still a puppy (less than 6 months) and loves to play and give kisses. Later that day we got a call about two chihuahuas and a small brown mutt close to Cowboy’s Restaurant. Unfortunately when we got there, the brown dog was ran over by car, but we were able to rescue the two chihuahuas. Both were female; Mina and Lara, and they have been adopted. Thomas is still looking for an owner. He is super sweet and loves to play with other dogs.
Lilo & Stitch
We won’t lie, we are running out of names. These two small-size dogs were rescued at the Lighthouse of Rincón; while waiting for the vet to check them out, we asked a little girl to named them. Her answer: Lilo and Stitch! And that’s how we named them. Both are males, vaccines up to date, over a year old (but not older than two years) and very sweet. They love it when you pet them. Both of them ignore cats (they ignore them) and are good with kids (and adults). Lilo is not so fond of other small dogs (but seems okay with big ones).
Capulina is a dashing mix and was rescued when she was pregnant; she gave birth to PD, Cameo, Oreo and Patch – all of them have been adopted and now is mom’s turn! Capulina is approximately a year and a half old, she is spayed and has all her vaccines up-to-date.
Sasa is approximately 2-3 months old; has he first round of booster (no rabies yet) and is a miniature pinsher-mix. Weighs less than 10 pounds but she is very playful with other small dogs. Sasa is also de-wormed and she will soon be vaccinated for rabies. We estimate that she will be a medium-size dog.
From her foster parents: “Mya is a sweet, tentative, beta personality female mixed breed. She is a regal, highly intelligent, friendly and happy dog. She loves to run and needs a big open space with lots of love and companionship from her owner. She loves to play and be with other dogs, so a multi-dog home would be great or she would get lonely. She is not food nor toy aggressive and trains easily. She is housebroken and learned the basic sit, paw, lay down in one evening with food and praise as a positive reinforcer. She is a bit of a homebody and is trained off leash for walking, she likes to be near you and other pets. I have not seen her with cats, or alone with small children except on the beach; I have never seen her be aggressive at all. She has been a pleasure to foster and needs the attention and deserving love of a forever home.”
Mya is 7month old, has all her shots, is spayed and weighs 45lbs.
Jojo is a female Rottweiler that does not require a lot of energy (she is very calm and likes to walk slowly). She is around 5 years old, good with children, other dogs, and cats. She is spayed and has all her vaccines (i.e. 4dx and rabies). Jojo needs a great person who can love her.
Named Mia, Lucia and Ali (all after three legendary boxers) these little cuties are all female (of course) boxer-mix and are about three weeks old (as of March 24th, 2015). One of them was already adopted… who can say no to those faces?
What a sweet-sweet dog! Valentina was dumped in a friend’s yard on March 28th, 2015. She appears to be 4 months old and we observed that she is good with cats and other dogs. That same day she started deworming treatment and had her first boost of the vaccines combo. Valentina was then taken to a foster home with another dog and they started playing right away! We estimate that she will be a medium size dog (on the “big” size) but she sure has lots of love to give as she likes to cuddle.
