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.

Louie

Neutered Male
1 1/2 yrs
Lab Mix

Read more about Louie!

OMG! What a sweet, sociable and lovable boy! Louie is gentle, good-natured and very bubbly. He is very friendly with people and animals. He especially loves to play with other dogs, fetches ball, enjoys walks and the dog park.

He is good with kids and doesn’t eat anyone’s shoes.

He’s extremely friendly with cats (however, our two feel a little overwhelmed by his size.)

Louie came to us from a family friend who can no longer care for him and needs a forever home; so we are caring for him in the meantime.

Cole

Male
4 months
Dwarf Hamster

Read more about Cole!

He’s tame and super easy. I trained him to come to me. He could do all the tricks for hamsters if I wasn’t too busy with work travel. Comes with cage, food and bedding. We are quite smitten with the little guy but can’t keep him.

Coco

Spayed Female
2 yrs
Domestic Shorthair

Read more about Coco!

Coco is a playful young cat. She loves to play fetch! She is a “talkative” indoor only cat who is smart and understands the words: let’s play, treat, come here, and bird!

She’s an independent cat, yet she loves to be held and can sit in your lap. She’ll come to cuddle next to you without any issues.

Why am I giving up this wonderful pet, you may ask? I have been privately fostering her for the past 2 years. My son has pet allergies to cats and dogs. Recently, I became very ill and can no longer be able to care for her.

Shaka

Neutered Male
1 yrs
Boxer Mix

Read more about Shaka!

Shaka is very cuddly, loves running at the beach, and going on hikes. Great with all dogs. Good off-leash at the beach. Very smart, potty trained. He now knows and follows commands to the words “Stay, Sit, and Down”.

He has lots of energy and needs to be walked or ran daily. Loves playing with his stuffed animal toys. Needs more training when it comes to jumping up on people when he gets excited. Very eager to learn. Rarely barks. We are currently treat training him. Looking for someone who can eventually make him a part of their family.

Shasta

Spayed Female
6 yrs
Rat Terrier/Healer Mix

Read more about Shasta!

Shasta needs to be with someone who has land. She wants to herd other animals. She doesn’t do well with other dogs, but she can be taught to get a long with your dog if you have one. She is an alpha and needs a strong leader. She is very sweet with people and a great cuddler. She is chipped and healthy. I have no time for her and I do not have a yard. I was only suppose to have her temporarily, but the owner refuses to come back for her. I am desperate! I love her, but I can’t have her. She needs a home asap.

Silas

Neutered Male
8 yrs
Pit Bull Mix

Read more about Silas!

Silas is 100% sweetheart. It’s true – everyone who meets him comments on how sweet he is.

Silas is the gentlest soul with the kindest eyes. Despite a tough life, he could not be a better dog. He is house trained, loves to go for walks and is the perfect buddy to watch movies with you on the couch. He loves meeting people and getting pets. He is easy going and never barks.

He was scheduled to be put down before we picked him up as a foster from the shelter. He was extremely underweight, but he has since gained weight and has a healthy appetite. He is gentle around children and is not dog or cat aggressive. He is neutered and up to date on his vaccines. He recently had a dental cleaning so is all good there.

Please let me know if you are interested in becoming Silas’ “people”!

Blue

Male (will be neutered on 6/11/19)
1.5 yrs
Husky/Pit Mix

Read more about Blue!

Before I start, Blue is set up (and paid for) to be neutered and receive his up to date shots on June 11th at 9 am.

Because I am going to have a baby in less than five months and I work five days a week, I have not been able to give him the life he deserves.

He is a husky so he is very active and needs at least one walk daily, but preferably two walks. He is very hard to walk on a leash for me as he pulls extremely hard and has made me fall quite a few times. He is very smart and can find his way out of a yard. He loves our cat, who he’s been raised with since a pup. He can be aggressive towards other male dogs if they’re not neutered but hopefully that will change after he gets fixed. Sometimes he’s timid around men. He absolutely loves playing with tires and ropes and he’s still in the process of getting used to water.

Blue is a big part of my family and it absolutely breaks my heart to be doing this but he really deserves so much more than I have to offer him.

Ziggy (brother of Mimi)

Neutered Male
4 yrs
Domestic Shorthair

Read more about Ziggy!

Mimi (girl) and Ziggy (boy) are two angels that came to us in a time of need. When we went to the San Jose Animal Shelter to adopt one kitty five years ago, we found Ziggy. But when we went to adopt him we found out he had a sibling. It felt wrong to separate them. A week after Ziggy came home with us, Mimi was reunited with her brother after getting fluids and recovering from their rescue. They have been together ever since and have been an enormous source of healing for our family.

Five years ago our lives were stationary and predictable, but it has now turned upside down as we are a family band that just got a big break. We will be traveling and on tour almost all of the time and Mimi and Ziggy need a stable, loving environment where there will receive lots of love.

Ziggy, her slightly larger brother is very affectionate, so much so that sometimes he likes to nip your ankles with little love bites. He’s a black kitty with a white patch on his chest and some on his belly. He loves to rub his face on you and someone not used to kitties that give love bites might be startled when he nips at your hands or ankles when you are petting him but Ziggy is a lover. He might push Mimi out of the way at the food bowl, but always looks out for her and is her best cuddle buddy.

It is our prayer we can find someone who would want to adopt them together and not separate siblings. Mimi and Ziggy are desperately seeking an angel to help them in a time of need, the way they helped us and we know the universe will find a way to make that happen. Please let us know if you may be that angel!

Mimi is quiet, petite, and timid but always knows when you need her and comes to nuzzle herself into your armpit to remind you how loved you are. She is the softest kitty I’ve ever had and my favorite color, grey. She looks like she’s wearing a little cardigan sweater and she is the sweetest when you get calm and let her come to you. She will stay by your side all day long.

It is our prayer we can find someone who would want to adopt them together and not separate siblings.
