Happy Ends

We are very proud of our hundreds of successful adoptions, and the many happy families that have returned to adopt from us again, and again, over the years.

Here are photos of some of our adopted kids. You can search by dog or family name.


Simon was adopted by Ed and Jonelle in Murhpys, CA.

Hi folks. It's nice to meet you. My name is Bertha, and my companion's name is Simon. I think I'll just do the talking for both of us since it will be easier that way. I'm not saying Simon is not capable of speaking for himself because he certainly is. We were found together as strays-interesting how that happens and how the person turning us in knows so much about us. Hmmm....anyway, we get along very well together and want to stay together as a couple because we truly like each other. It was thought I was pregnant (I guess Simon might have liked me a little too much) when we came to Redding, but thankfully that was a false alarm! Now we have both been altered, and I have had entropion surgery as well. We are healthy and happy and eager to please-not to mention quite the handsome couple. I am the black horsecoat and that leaves Simon to be the red fawn brushcoat. We would appreciate it if you would not ask that we be split up-we wouldn't ask that of you. We are both young adults and ready for the family looking for "double or nothing".

Mr Wrinkles

Mr. Wrinkles has been adopted by Mike Lopez and now lives in Southern CA.

My name is Mr. Wrinkles-quite the original name, and I have a little bit of a different story, but maybe even worse than the normal "no one came to claim me at the shelter". My foster parents were notified of me by the staff at a shelter in Auburn, CA. I was taken from my owner due to neglect. She chained me outside with little human contact. I'm not sure how long that went on, but however long it may have been it was too long! I really like humans in spite of this terrible treatment, and all things considered I'm not in too bad of shape. The vet who took care of me until I could hitch a ride to Redding neutered me and did entropion surgery for me to. Thank you Dr. Ed-at least for the eye surgery! I'm just a young man who doesn't mind spending time in the back yard as long as it's with my people and not at the end of a chain. I don't know what else to say except that I just need a second chance to be a companion to someone who will treat me as the special Pei that I am. Whoever that might be-the first order of business has to be to get rid of this pink collar! What were they thinking?????????

Bamboo has been adopted by Gary and Sheryl and now lives in the San Francisco area.

I'm one of the new kids on the block. My name is Bamboo-it is strange to be named after a plant, but I had nothing to do with picking it-it was already my name when I got to Redding. I came here by way of AZ, which is a nice place to visit, but I think I prefer Redding. I have lots of love to give both to other dogs and people. I happened to hear my foster parents talking about me-really I'm not an eavesdropper, but I really wanted to know what they were saying about me. It was all good. My foster dad was saying he got down to talk to me and I put both paws around his neck and pulled him closer so I could plant a "big wet one" on him. I thought it was great fun, and I guess he did too-he tells everyone what a great guy I am. Who would not want a kiss from a big handsome guy such as myself? I might be new here, but I don't really want to grow old here. Please consider me if you are thinking about a new family member. I am willing to relocate again...

Happy has been adopted by Jim and Debby and now lives in Modesto with his 12 year old Pei sister.

Hello to you all out there checking out this website. I am new to Redding, coming from Bakersfield. My owner's sister contacted this rescue on my behalf. She said her brother had taken me to the vet and was told my eyes were is such bad shape that if he couldn't get the necessary surgery done, that I should be put down. My foster parents sure didn't want that to happen to me so they took me into their program. Before I got here I had already been in three homes at the very young age of 10 months-I guess nobody could take care of me properly. Well, look at me now-my eyes are beautiful! I know in this picture, I look very serious, but really I'm a very fun loving and outgoing kind of guy. I've gained some much needed weight since arriving in Redding, and now I'm ready for my fourth and final home. I am about one year old now and a very short chocolate horsecoat. If you would like to meet me, please fill out the application under my name, but please remember that I've been in too many unstable homes already. I need someone to take my life and well being very seriously and to provide me with a loving home for the rest of my life. That I am serious about...

Major was adopted by the Mihalik family in Southern CA.

Hi folks. Major Payne here reporting my updated status. I have been waiting for so long for my forever home that I feel like this is my forever home! I am happy to let you all know that I am in the best of health in mindk body, and spirit. I sure wish one of you fine people out there reading this would give me a chance to join your family. Being here is certainly better than hanging out in the parking lot at the 99 cent store in Lodi where I was found, but to be honest I have higher hopes. My foster parents don't even understand what I am still here. I play nice with others, but I'm not pushy-I respect that others need their space too. I'm more of an independent kind of guy, but loving just the same. I just want a family of my own, and I don't think that's too much too ask. I don't think I'm a bad looking guy. My coat is beautiful-thick and soft. If you will come to Redding and let me introduce myself, I don't think you will be disappointed in what you will see...please give me a chance.
