Adoption update! “Hello, just wanted to update you on Fritz (previously Jax). I adopted her about 3 years ago and she is the best dog i could’ve asked for! Fritz is always happy to go on adventures and loves the beach + park. She loves spending time in our backyard sunbathing as much as she can and enjoying our fresh berries from the garden.

Bunday adoption update! “Freddie has been such a wonderful addition to our family! She is super sweet and loves hanging out with us in the living room. She entertains us with her binkies (sidekicks!) and zoomies. She’s also a great cuddler and listener — the kids love to read to her and it has really helped with their confidence. We are so grateful to our friend Angie and her family for doing such an amazing job fostering her and nurturing her into such a social butterfly. We love her so much!”

Woohoo! After waiting almost 4 months, sweet boy Jacob has been adopted!

June 2023

French Fries has been adopted! Here he is (left) going home with his new family, including new big brother Ricardo Tubbs!

“We adopted Maverick now Simon aka Snoop Cat last June 2022. Simon was very shy and withdrawn at the shelter but something kept attracting me to him. It’s been a slow process for Simon to open up and relax but it is so worth it. He is like a flower opening up and now sleeps close to my side every night and follows me around like a dog. He is one of the noisiest kitties I’ve ever had. He is very clever, opening doors, and even snooping on the internet lol. He has been a lot of fun and adds a lot of spice to our apartment.”

“I adopted this cutie a few months ago. While waiting on me lol his name was Kiefer I believe. He is now Boo and is as sweet as sugar. Plays fetch with his balls and enjoys sitting by the window. Thought i would send some pictures of this handsome boy in his forever home!”

After waiting 6 months at the shelter and losing his beloved sister, Koda has found his forever home, complete with new big beds to lie on, new friends of all species, and so many new smells to explore. His adopter says “He’s such a good boy and loves the farm.” Happiest of tales for Koda!

After arriving at the shelter very scared, then slowly coming out of his shell thanks to the help of volunteers and staff, Draco has found his forever home. Happy tails sweetie!

Winston and Bertie adopted together.

Handsome Casper was adopted last month and we already got a great update: “After much deliberation we have named him Louie, and we are absolutely in love with this little love bug. He’s slowly exploring the house and is learning to coexist with our dog Basil. We hope soon they will be friends! Thank you for bringing him into our lives.”

Junior house panther Jellybean has been adopted!

We love when alumni visit! Beautiful Esther Rose was adopted from us way back in June 9, 2012 and is doing great. She and her mom came by to renew her license and check out the new shelter.

A great update: “This is coco and I got her last month at the shelter and she loves the sun so much!!!!! Yes please she is so happy living with me in Japan town, and has taken a liking to cuddles, as usual, and ham, and cuddles in the morning, and lots of love.”

Our favorite cow pittie Tillamook has been adopted! Happy tails!

Diamond was adopted by her foster family!

Stevie’s update…
“My roommate and I adopted a sweet kitty named Octavia in September 2021 from SF ACC. I went back and looked at her old adoption advertisement post for the memories and I wanted to give an update on her!

We decided to rename Octavia to Stevie. We call her a lot of different nicknames like Steven, Steve-o, Stinky, Stinker, etc. It was serendipitous that we adopted her, because we originally were going to ACC to look at a different cat, and hadn’t even seen her listed online. But we fell in love with her and I’m so glad we adopted her!!

Stevie is such a sweet, spunky, and loving girl. She loves to hang out with us while we watch TV, chase bugs, and frolic in our backyard. She’s very social and likes to greet anyone who comes over by smelling their feet. She’s actually really into rubbing feet, so we call her our little freak! Most mornings she will cuddle in bed with me and knead on her fuzzy blanket.

We are so grateful to ACC for taking care of Stevie when she was surrendered, and for giving her the surgery needed for her leg! We hope whoever surrendered her feels comforted that she is well loved and taken care of. Thank you so much for all you do!”

May 2023

Long-time resident Ash has been adopted!

Pumpkin was adopted last week and we already have an update! “He is adjusting to his new home very quickly. He is a load of sweetness and chill. He loves to balance between “me time” and one-on-one petting sessions.” His adopter hopes his former person (who had to surrender him because they were too ill to care for him) will see this post and know that “He is loved and happy.”

Cutie pie bun Biscuit has found her forever family, who adopted a hamster from us last year!

Adoption update! Bella (formerly Baby Beluga) was adopted in February after patiently waiting for months. “She is loving life!” And she’s sure looking great! One of our dog volunteers reports “I get the great pleasure of dog-sitting her when momma is out of town.”

Reunited and it feels so good! This black and white cutie is Rio. He was stolen from his owner’s car (as well as all the belongings from the car) at 12 weeks old and after filing police reports, hiring pet detectives, and looking for her puppy for about 6 months, she finally gave up looking and moved on with her life. Fast forward 1 ½ years later and this dog arrives as a stray and his microchip links to the woman whose puppy was stolen. They are now happily reunited! Had it not been for the microchip she never would have seen her beloved puppy again. She is thankful to the staff for all their care of Rio while he was with us. Microchip your pets and make sure the information is updated when you move! 

Another update on Poppy (formerly Priscilla): “Hi Family! Tracy tells me I am the best ever girl and I am home. I think home means she takes me on lots of walks and lets me sniff, she knows how to scratch the best spot, she talks to me in a silly voice, she accidently drops bacon, she doesn’t care if I don’t bring the ball back, she lets me sleep on the bed in my spot, and she always tells me she loves, loves, loves me. I give her my best ever love back. Larry is pretty okay too. Bye!”

April 2023

Poppy (fka Priscilla) adoption update! “Hi SFACC Family – Today marks Poppy’s 31st day with us and she celebrated with a hamburger “cake” and a hike in the drizzly rain. She is the absolute best dog and Larry and I are so in love with her. She has had a few adventures these past couple weeks – been to Sunriver, Oregon and saw snow and has met the Pacific Ocean a few times. She loves to romp on the beach!

We are working on training and she is really mastering recall. Most importantly, she was always a happy dog but now she is showing more confidence and curiosity daily. She can walk on a leash without being fearful of trucks and loud noises (her brother Teddy helps her) and she loves to sun in the backyard on her bed. She and Teddy get along beautifully and are seldom apart. She has also gained a couple pounds and filled out a bit.

She is bringing us so much joy and we are so grateful to SFACC staff and volunteers. Thank you from the bottom of our hearts.

Poppy wanted me to send you this message – “Hi – I love you guys but I think I will stay here. I like it a lot. My mom calls me all kinds of silly names and gives me the 100 kisses torture each night before bed. Bye!”

Much love, Tracy and Larry”

Monday is a great day for Sundae: This sweet senior lady was just adopted!

Wee pup Lil Baby was adopted last week and we have an update! “Lil Baby has been super sweet and likes cuddles all day everyday. she’s doing well and she behaves well. She is a Velcro dog but I’m looking forward to her training! She loooves snuggling in between pillows and being comfy, especially because of the coldness here in Daly City! She’s super cute! I named her Guinevere; she responds well to the name and behaves when I call her Guinevere. Her fave toy is the cow, she snuggles with it.”

Pierre (soon to be Bruce) and his new forever family! They’re planning his Instagram account and we can’t wait to hear updates!

Penny was adopted in 2019: “She was so shy when I first met her. I was told she was taken to Petco to see if it would help get her adopted because she hid from strangers at the shelter. I went to Hawaii for a week but couldn’t stop thinking about her and the day I got home she returned to the shelter from Petco. When I went to visit her the second time, she crawled right into my lap and I knew it was meant to be!

She follows me everywhere and is always either in my lap, on my shoulder, or sleeping on me. Her nickname is Penny Pie. …I adopted her about a year after my 20-yr-old cat, Rocky, passed away.”

Yay! Merlin has been adopted.

Precious pup Cypress has gone home and is now called Bruce.
