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.

Want to run an ad of your own?

If you need to rehome a pet and you’d like to list it on our site, please visit the Rehome Your Pet section of our website and find the Post in Community Pet Listings tab for instructions. We accept listings for almost any species of animal. All dogs and cats listed must be spayed or neutered.

Bruce Bantam is a very social rooster. We think he is a Dutch Bantam. Unfortunately we didn’t set out to have a rooster but that’s what we got. Hoping to find a home for him!

Spayed Female

Great Pyrenees/German Shepherd

Read about Clementine!

Clementine is a total goofball/lover and we love her, but unfortunately due to circumstances, are unable to keep her.

Build/Breed: She is a big girl, weighing in at 120 lbs! She gets her size from her dad (pure bred Great Pyrenees) but she has the red coloring from her mom’s side (pure bred Black German Shepherd)

History: I paid a “rehoming fee” to adopt her from a family in Los Banos. The family apparently bred Great Pyrenees and German Shepherds, and this litter was an accident. The previous owners had given her her first shots and I have kept up on her vaccinations.

I spayed her when she was 1years old (I have records for new owners)

Birthday: 05/31/2015
(She just had her 3rd birthday)

Personality: She is super cuddly and sweet. She’s the kind of dog that is protective through the fence towards strangers, but friendly once you open the gate. She’s smart and curious. She’s a total lover.

Health: To our knowledge she is totally healthy! We do make sure to measure her food and make sure not to give her too many treats because she LOVES food and will overeat if given the opportunity 🙂

Behavior: She is not a dominant personality. Around the dogs she was raised with she was the submissive one. She has been raised around large/small dogs and my cat. She’s good with kids. She is potty trained and loves going on walks (she pulls on the leash a little at first because she’s excited, but not very much, and she stops once the initial excitement wears off)

Though she is a working class hybrid, she not that active. She loves playing and going on walks but she’s pretty relaxed… Not lazy but not hyper.

She is friendly when meeting new people and dogs during walks. She doesn’t realize she’s big so she is a little nervous when meeting new pups but she has shown no signs of aggression, just wary at first. We haven’t seen any signs of food aggression or separation anxiety, but she’s always had another animal around so she hasn’t had a chance to get lonely.

The only animals I know wouldn’t be safe around her are rats, mice, and lizards. Apparently they are a delicacy to her. (We live on a ranch) She also chases rabbits and squirrels but has yet to catch one. (Maybe in her dreams)

That’s all I can think of for now but feel free to contact me if you or anyone you know is interested in giving Clementine a good home. Text or email me.

Also I wanted to add that if you do decide to adopt her, and for some reason it doesn’t work out, we will take her back at any time.

Read more about Cassie!

As said by Cassie…

Sadly, my favorite person recently died but I am excited to meet you to see if you could be my new favorite person in the world!

Living in a home as the only pet is all I know, as I am a bit shy and have never had a sibling. I live indoors and hang out either on my cat tree or in any warm snuggly place, even on your pillow. I like to chat and let you know when I’d like something (tuna, please?!?) and to be by your side wherever you are.

The vet said I am in great health, although a tad bit heavy. Hey, that means more of me to love! One eye has scarring on the lens but it doesn’t stop me from jumping, running, playing and living large!

You couldn’t ask for a better companion!

Rocky and Squirt

Neutered Males
7-8 years
Maine Coon Mixes 

Read more about them!

Rocky and Squirt are currently looking for their new forever home. They are bonded brothers that were originally adopted as kittens to a loving home until both of their parents passed away unexpectedly within the last 3 years. They are 7-8 years old and in good health. They are shy and slightly skittish, but once they get to know you they become very attentive and affectionate. We believe they are part maine coon. They are looking for a quiet and loving home. Rocky and Squirt are indoor cats.

Read more about Yoki!

Yoki is a sweet, social, and snuggly girl. She enjoys stalking feather toys while you’re watching TV and strikes when you think she’s given up! Her leaps for feathers and laser pointers are world renowned. Yoki also likes hiding in paper bags and jumping onto tall ledges to survey her kingdom. Playful though she may be, she’s content to snuggle in your lap. She has been mostly indoors but the times we’ve let her into our yard, she’s been happy and stayed close by. 

 Yoki would like to be the only cat in the house. We keep her separated from our other cat and one of our dogs, but gets along well with the our other, more relaxed pup. It’s safe to say she could get along well with mellow dogs if properly introduced. We’ve been taking care of her for over a year for a family member that could no longer keep her. She was shy when we first got her but we quickly won her over with whipped cream and patience. She is now a snuggle bug. She deserves a more devoted family to give her love, attention, and free roaming rights. 

 We are happy to pass along her favorite toys and litter box to save her new family some money and help her transition well into her new home. She is up to date on her vaccines.
