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.


Milton was adopted by Richard in Vista, CA.

Hello, and Happy New Year to all of you. My name is Milton, and my new year is starting out just fine. It's certainly better than playing in traffic where I was found. I also had some sort of stick in my paw that made my situation even worse. Fortunately for me, I have some guardian angels who, previous to this, I never even knew about. They found me and took me to a vet where my leg was treated, and then they notified my foster parents here in Redding who took me in. I had a lump on one of my front legs that turned out to be some sort of thorn. It was working its way toward my joint, and had it gotten there, it would have caused me permanent problems. It has since been removed, I have been neutered, and I have had eye surgery. That's a lot to go through for a young guy like me considering I'm not even a year old yet.

I'm hoping that 2016 will be a better year for me and that I will find my forever home. I can be a little timid when I first meet new people, but what can you expect considering what I have been through. Once I know you, I will be your best friend.
Because I am so young, I do have lots of energy and I'm very playful. If you think I might be the guy for you, please get in touch with my foster parents by way of an adoption application with my name on it-that's MILTON in case you've forgotten!

Levi has gone to live in South Lake Tahoe with the Hughes family.

Hello everyone. My name is Levi, and I come from a small town in northern
CA where I was found, but no one seemed to want me back. I wandered into
this nice man's yard, and he fed me and took care of me for about three
months while trying to locate my owner. No one responded to his ads, so he
contacted my foster parents to see if they had room for me. They agreed to
take me in so here I am in Redding. I'm getting along with everyone
famously, and I do get along with cats and small dogs. I like to be the
"big man on campus" so I really only like dogs smaller than I am. That
doesn't eliminate many since I weigh in at a healthy 75 pounds-and not an
ounce of fat! However, if I stay here for any length of time, I may end up
looking like some of my brothers and sisters here who could use a few weeks
of Jenny Craig, if you know what I mean. Well, I don't know what else I can
tell you, and the picture speaks for itself in terms of my good looks. I am
available and waiting to hear from you.


Sassy has been adopted by Anthony in Union City, CA.


Bobby was adopted by Julie in Richmond, CA.

Hi, it's me, Bobby.

I just wanted to let you all know how I am doing here in Redding. I have been to see Dr. Larry who thinks Iím probably closer to 6-7 years old than 12 years old judging from my teeth. Thatís good news for me and anyone who might want to make me part of their family. My foster dad says I donít act like a 12 year old Pei. Iím out there doing ďplay bowsĒ and running around the yard trying to engage him in some kind of play, but maybe HEís the one who is too old for that!

I have had my eyes done, I was neutered, and they even cleaned my teeth for me. Unfortunately, now I have tested positive for heartworm disease. I will start the treatment as soon as I heal from my surgeries. I hear itís not an easy treatment for me, but I am confident that I will be fine and ready for a new home when it is complete. It will be about two months before I will get a ďclean bill of healthĒ, but you know good things are worth waiting for!

I hope my story has touched your heart. I also hope for those of you who have not tested your four legged companions for heartworm disease and put them on preventative, that you will make an effort to do that. The treatment may be difficult and somewhat painful, but left untreated the disease is a death sentence. I am lucky that my foster parents test every dog who is accepted into their program. Yes, there have been dogs that have come from Southern CA who were positive, although there are people in that area who do not think their dogs are at risk. The area I came from is not considered high risk, but that mosquito who bit me and gave me this disease sure didnít know any boundaries. Itís an easy blood test and a once a month preventative that can prevent heartworm disease, and I can tell you that I sure wish my previous owners had done that for me so I would not be having to go through the upcoming treatment. I am just glad it was discovered, and I will have the opportunity to live a long and healthy life. Once the treatment is complete, I will have no lasting effects.

Well, I will get off my soap box now. I just wanted all of you to be aware of heartworm disease and what you can do to prevent it.

I wish I had new photo of my handsome self to share with you, but my foster parents have had a lot going on. I will be touch after my treatment with an update and new picture.

Thanks for caring.
