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.

Beatrice-Queen Bea

Bea was adopted by Tracy and Fred, and now calls Placerville home.

Hello everyone. My name is Beatrice-Queen Bea for short. I arrived in Redding from a shelter in San Francisco. I am only about one year old and I'm told I'm very "mouthy". Not that I am trying to be mean, I just like to grab everything in my mouth including hands. I am not trying to bite-it's just my "way". For this reason, if there were kids in a family that was considering adopting me, they should be older kids that would not be frightened by me taking their hand in my mouth. Really, it's not a big deal, but I thought you should know. Also, this photo was taken when I arrived in Redding in July. As you can see my skin was not in great shape, and I needed entropion surgery as well as being spayed. I was also suffering from an upper respiratory infection which seems to be common for those of us coming out of shelters. All of these "issues" have now been taken care of, and we all agree I am ready for my forever home. If you think I might be a good match for you, please fill out the application under my name. Thanks for considering me.

Benny has been adopted by Mike and Susan in the Sacramento area. He joins a Pei sister, Bailey.

Hello to all you Shar Pei fans out there! My name is Benny, and I came from Phoenix, AZ, along with my companion Joon. Although we came in together, we can go our separate ways. I am a young adult boy, and I have had entropion surgery and been neutered so I am good to go. I'm a friendly sort of guy and can get along nicely with others. It's not really that I am boring, but I just don't have much to say at this point. I guess if you want to get my opinion about something, you will just have to visit me here in Redding. By the way, if you are thinking of making the trip to Redding, there is lots to do here and lots of beautiful places to visit-after you have met and visited with us. Hope to see you soon!

Cinnamon continues to live in Northern CA with the Serotta family.

I am another new face here in Redding, and my name is Cinnamon thanks to all of your FB fans out there. I did come in with my companion, Dory, from a shelter in Oroville, CA. Not only do my eyes need surgery and I do need to be spayed, but I am also heartworm positive. If you are not familiar with heartworm disease, it is transmitted by mosquitos. Here in Northern CA we are at extreme high risk for the disease, but I have learned that a few dogs that came into this rescue from Southern CA were also positive. It is easy to prevent us from getting this disease with a once a month pill that you get from your vet. Once we are all tested for this disease then we are kept on the preventative year round at the rescue. The treatment for this condition is very costly, but more than that it is very hard on us who have to go through it. I have started my treatment and now have to wait two weeks for the second part of it. During the treatment I have to try and stay calm-that's not always easy for a two year old girl like myself. Once my treatment is completed, I will have my eyes fixed and be spayed. We must be treated first or there is a chance we will not make it through any surgeries. Anyway, I still have quite a long road ahead of me, but even with all this, I am a very loving and grateful girl for the care I am receiving. I know I may not look my best right now, but please know that I am a diamond in the rough, but a diamond never the less. I am a lilac horsecoat and according to my foster parents one of the sweetest and most loving dogs here.

If anyone out there is able to help with the cost of my heartworm treatment and/or surgeries, it would be much appreciated.

Dawson is with the Pashaie family in Southern CA.

Please allow me to introduce myself. My name is Dawson or "Awesome Dawson" as I am affectionately known here at the rescue. I was the product of a divorce and given to a new owner. My new owner was not in a position to provide the eye surgery that I so badly needed so she contacted my foster parents here in Redding. Before I knew it, I was living here at the rescue in my new "condo". I have since had eye surgery and been neutered. When I arrived, my skin didn't look too good, but it's nothing a consistent diet of a good food won't cure. I shared my last home with a Pit Bull and a Boston Terrier so I can pretty much get along with anyone. There were also children in that family. I am about two years old male, and now that I have had surgery, my eyes are wide open-the better to see you with when you come to visit me. I am friendly and outgoing and love attention. I am, as they say, the whole package, and quite awesome...
