Breed: German Shepherd

Age: 8 years 7 months

Gender: Female

About the pet:  Vicky is very good with children. Great watch dog listens well and follows some commands. She is affectionate, loves toys, going for walks, riding in cars and doesn't mind bathing.

Why are you re-homing your pet?  She is very aggressive towards other animals and my living situation is with other dogs. Unfortunately because of that she had attacked another dog. My living situation is with her and two other dogs and I don't want to resort to euthanasia. She needs to be the only pet in the home.

Pet’s Name: Mouse

Breed: Domestic Short Hair

Age: 3.5

Gender: Female

About the pet: Mouse loves people food, including really weird stuff like arugula and tofu, so she'd love to join you at your dinner table. She loves to sleep on me at night. She can get territorial, so she might do best as a single cat (although she gets along GREAT with her sister Tiny, below). She's fine with dogs.

Why are you re-homing your pet? We fostered Mouse (and her sister, Tiny, below) when she was 6 weeks old, and decided to keep her for as long as we could. Now we have an 10 month old baby, two dogs, and five cats. Unsurprisingly, it's not working out to have so many creatures in our home. No one gets enough attention, and the pets are stressed.

Pet’s Name: Tiny

Breed: Domestic Short Hair

Age: 3.5

Gender: Female

About the pet: Tiny is a seven-pound sweetheart with a big purr who wants to cuddle with you all day and night. Tiny is disabled due to Cerebellar Hypoplasia, a condition in which part of her brain is underdeveloped and her coordination is affected. She's pretty active and mobile given her condition, but she can't always move quickly and she falls over a lot.

Why are you re-homing your pet? We fostered Tiny (and her sister, Mouse, above) when she was 6 weeks old, and decided to keep her for as long as we could. Now we have a 10 month old baby, two dogs, and five cats. Because of her disability in particular, we are no longer the best home for Tiny. Tiny needs a much quieter and safer home.

Pet’s Name: Raja

Breed: Tabby Cat

Age: 3

Gender: Male

About the pet:   1- Extremely friendly- he will find you wherever you are, rub against your legs and talk to you constantly, shows so much love!
2- He is ok with a quiet night, laying on the foot of your bed while you relax but is just as ready for a energized night- always ready to play! Goes with the flow!

Why are you re-homing your pet?   My brother and sister-in-law moved across the country because of new job opportunities. Unfortunately they were not able to take Raja with them. It broke their hearts but the only choice was to leave him behind with me. I am barely home and don't feel like I'm giving this needy, loving little guy the amount of attention and care he deserves.

Pet’s Name: Razz

Breed: Basenji

Age: 9

Gender: Male

About the pet: Unselfish loyal love; a one person dog who will die for you. Follows you everywhere and is happy just to be in your company and travels well in the car.

Why are you re-homing your pet?  He doesn't get along with cats (I have 6), and he doesn't get along with my one female. He gets along with the other one though. He can stay alone, and prefers to be adoring to one, maybe two people. True to his breed, he doesn't like crowded, loud environments and should never be with children.

Pet’s Name: Hailey

Breed: Calico

Age: 4

Gender: Female

About the pet:  Hailey is very sweet! She's innocent and just wants to be loved and adored. Anytime someone walks in the room she happily rushes over and purrs continuously while gliding back and forth against your legs, waiting for a little scratch under her chin!

Why are you re-homing your pet? Hailey was in a foster care system. When they found her on the streets she was pregnant & became very depressed after her kittens were taken away from her. My brother & sister-in-law adopted her & soon adopted 2 more cats. She became timid & nervous around the other cats & so they left her with me to find her a new loving sanctuary she can call her home
