She and Teddy are the best of friends, she got a new coat which she loves, and a new bed which she loves (only for day use – nights she is in the bed with us!) and she is def not a fan of rainy weather! But Saturday will be sunny so we are going on a hike tomorrow.

She is the perfect fit for our family and we are so grateful to SFACC staff and volunteers. Really, we would have paid tens of thousands for this beautiful lovey squishy perfect girl!”

“Hi all! It’s me Rocky, formerly known as Craig! It’s been a year since I went home with my family to Oregon. Since then I have grown up to the handsome guy you see in the picture! My daily adventures include forest walks, playing in the snow, watching all the wildlife roam by, including turkeys, deer, foxes, and chickens. My favorite snack is turkey poop. I have had several playdates with the local girls, Misty, Missy and Luna. I get to go for rides with Dad to his jobs and I am a good boy. My favorite stop is the post office because the lady behind the desk will ask me to sit then throw me a treat! I sure have them all trained! The only thing I haven’t mastered yet is the big black kitty. He’s still a brute, but we are making progress. Mom says I play too hard with him, but I can’t help it. He’s so fluffy!”

She continues to thrive and share her sweet love with everyone (human or animal) she meets!”

Adoption update: “Wanted to send an email about the kitten I was so blessed to have been able to adopt on September 7th. His given name was Felix but I chose to name him Fish!! He has warmed up wonderfully and I’m very proud to be his mom! Still not entirely sure how old he is but he was said to be about 5 months when I adopted him!! He still has lots of kitten mannerisms but he has grown and blossomed so much. He’s become quite the picky and spoiled type but he deserves it, thank you for connecting me to him and allowing me to adopt him into my little family.”

Adoption update: “I wanted to thank you for allowing me to adopt Atticus (now Foley) in August of last year. He is a sweet, rambunctious guy who loves naps, playing, and video bombing Zoom calls. He’s grown a bit, and has become quite the fierce house panther. Many a cat toy has met its end in his claws. But being a well-rounded gentleman, he is also a champion snuggler. I’m so appreciative of the great care received while at Animal Care and Control and the amazing staff and volunteers who helped him find his forever home. I wish you all the best in this holiday season and the year to come.”
