Community Pet Listings

Some pet owners need to re-home an animal and prefer not to surrender it to a shelter. We help by including their animals here on our Community Pet Listings page. Each post is live on our site for up to 30 days, and is written by the pet’s owner. If you have questions or would like to adopt an animal on the list, simply contact the owner directly by phone or email.

Bo

Neutered Male
4.5 years
Australian Cattle Dog

Read more about Bo!
Bo is a 30 lb neutered male Australian cattle dog. This dog is very quiet, rarely barks and has never growled at me or other people or dogs, He is not aggressive and is mostly submissive. I take him to the dog park twice a day and while he greets other dogs, he does not play, yet. He tends to avoid larger dogs, especially the large younger playful dogs.

I agreed to foster him to see what his personality is and if he had any issues. It appears he was an outside dog that was punished when he tried to enter a house as I still need to pick him up to bring him in the house. He was not house trained, but quickly learned using crate training. He is still not good on a leash, but that can be his next step in training. In the house he likes to sit in the corner and gnaw on his bones and sleep. He still exhibits anxiety from his previous home, but he is getting more and more comfortable.

He would probably do well with other small mature dogs or by himself. He will accept treats but is still wary of hands coming toward him, and tends to stay beyond reach most of thei time, but that has also improved. He Is very intelligent, likes to travel in the car, but needs to be on leash when in the open. He seems to be very trainable.

Milo

Neutered Male
4 years
Siberian Husky

Read more about Milo!
Milo is a four year old Siberian husky. He is fifty pounds. Due to his behavior he should not go to a home with another male dog, but could do well with a female dog with a slow into. He has lived in the house with two senior chihuahuas, and a golden retriever his entire life and has not had any issues with them.

He is potty trained. He likes to counter surf and trash dive but knows his basic commands such as sit, lay down, come, drop it, leave it and stay. He has good recall (only when you have treats) and walks well on leash (with a front clip harness.) He is not escape oriented. He is used to sleeping in the bed with his humans but is crate trained.

Milo is an extremely sweet dog who loves snuggles and has the potential to be good around other dogs with the proper training. I unfortunately came to the hard realization that I am unable to provide for him in the way he deserves. Milo is a fantastic hiking partner and is the best snuggler. He is always down for an adventure.

Koda

Neutered Male
3 years
Aussie/Lab

Read more about Koda!
Koda is a 3 year old Australian Shepherd/Labrador Retriever mix with the coloring of a grizzly bear. He came from a shelter in Lodi and was neutered in November after being surrendered by his owner because of housing displacement due to wildfires.

Koda is a shy boy who took to us very quickly- as he has also done with his dog sitter (though it takes him about a day and lots of treats to warm up). He is very much a shadow dog, he loves to follow us wherever we go but he is always respectfully and patiently waiting for attention. He is a mega cuddler and loves to be pet, brushed, and groomed. During the day he lounges around quietly, he is completely potty trained and does not demonstrate separation anxiety aside, though he will periodically look longingly out a window for you until you return. He has no problem hanging out at home alone for long periods during the day, so long as he has a comfortable place to hang out and something interesting to chew on.

Koda needs a lot more socialization with humans and other dogs. He bonds very quickly to his family members, but he tends to fear bark at strangers who approach or enter the house. At the shelter, he was very well socialized with other dogs and people and had zero reactivity to them. However, Koda’s current home is fairly isolated and we feel that he needs more attention and training to remind him that the outside world is safe! He has developed a territorial response to dogs who approach our home by barking aggressively, but he has not demonstrated any leash reactivity while on walks (he is very good at walking on leash). We think Koda needs more consistent practice interacting with other people and dogs outside the home before he can feel comfortable with new people and dogs at home.

Currently he cohabitates with another dog, they get along peaceably but Koda tends to prefer hanging out with people rather than his canine housemate.

Koda is a wonderful companion who needs a family willing to invest in some socialization methods and can get regular interaction with the outside world. We live in a rural community that presents a challenge for us to disrupt his territorial behavior and are heartbroken to seek rehoming such a sweet natured boy. If you are someone willing to patiently work with him, you’ll be rewarded with his exceptional companionship. Not to mention his incredibly beautiful moon eyes!

Koda is up to date with his rabies and vaccinations, has a clean bill of health and we will provide his new home with a several month supply of flea, tick, and heartworm medication.

Tenaya

Spayed Female
2 years
Rottweiler/Great Pyrenees

Read more about Tenaya!

Tenaya was adopted from a shelter in the South Bay. She is sweet, loyal, and extremely athletic. She is house trained and knows her basic commands-sit, down, up, stay, come. Tenaya is shy with new people but once you’re in her pack she is loyal, cuddly, and playful. Tenaya has learned to enjoy walks and even likes to run for miles! She is an amazing house dog who has great puppy energy. Tenaya needs an experienced owner who is willing to put time into training her. She would do best in an adult only home with no other pets. She can be reactive towards other dogs, but can walk with dogs that she becomes acquainted with. She would do best in a home with backyard space that she can run around in.

Bunny

Neutered Male
9 years
Manx

Read more about Bunny!
Bunny is a beautiful black and white, neutered nine year old Manx in search of a new home as his owner passed away. He grew up in a household with one quiet woman and another mellow female cat so would benefit from a peaceful home. A December full veterinary check-up determined him to be in excellent health. He is up to date with vaccinations and his senior cat blood panel came back with no issues. His nails were trimmed and his plush coat was given a light de-matting.

In the past Bunny has been an indoor/outdoor cat and is currently staying inside so we can socialize with him to get him accustomed to new people. He can easily transition to an indoor only cat which we recommend with the increase in coyote activity in our county.

His original owner described him as a playful ‘snuggle-bunny’ who would sit with her while she read. He is an engaging and truly handsome cat who is interested in people. He has only known one person his whole life and it will take some time for him to relax into a new household where his loving personality can shine.

He is located in Campbell, California. We are offering a one-year pet insurance subscription through Pet‘s Best to cover Bunny’s medical care and we will also include a supply of toys, food, cat carrier and litter/litter box.

Peanut

Neutered Male
9 years
Domestic Shorthair

Read more about Peanut!
Peanut is super loving and just wants to hang out on your lap while you read or work. He doesn’t like super fast movements, so young kids is a little bit of an issue. Dogs that think they’re cats might be fine. He just wants to have a mellow person/people/family that will pet him whenever he’s around.

Oso

Neutered Male
5 years
Terrier Mix

Read more about Oso!
Oso loves to cuddle and be near his owner. He needs shorts walks everyday. He has allergies and a mildly deformed front paw. He is able to walk and go up and down stairs fine, but this limits him from doing long walks or hikes. Oso needs more training and time that I have to give him. He is a love, with big beautiful eyes.

Xochi

Spayed Female
15 months
Boxer/G.Shep/Pit/Shar Pei

Read more about Xochi!
Sadly, I am looking for a new home for my lovely new pup. I rescued Xochi a month ago from a shelter in Mexico. She had been thought to be a Xoloitzcuintle (Mexican Hairless) mix, and I was told she was a distemper survivor (had at 2 months, and lovingly fostered back to health) and had a wonderful disposition. I adore this gorgeous dog!

She is house trained, crate trained, wonderful at the dog park and off leash at the beach. Unfortunately for me, she is not Xolo, a hypoallergenic breed, but a mixture of some of the most allergenic breeds, and my asthma makes it impossible to keep her,… and it breaks my heart. I don’t want to wait long for her sake, and for mine. She’s current with all vaccinations and has met with the vet who pronounced her “perfect!”

I have no idea how she is with cats. We’ve been to parks and beaches with little kids and she treats them no differently than adults. She’s cool with sirens and joggers and bikes and skateboards but has an affinity for Monarch’s and squirrels. If you would like to meet her please call or text.
