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. She is happy, healthy and definitely the most spoiled girl ever. Thank you so much for everything you do! You can also follow along to see her next adventures on Instagram @fritzinsf “

“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 Simon was very shy and withdrawn at the shelter but something kept attracting me to him.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!

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!”

March 2023

In March, SFACC had 47 adoptions (10 cats, 16 dogs, and 21 other species). In addition, the shelter transferred 192 animals to adoption partners (38 cats, 68 dogs, and 86 other species). A total of 239 animals got a second chance. Thank you to everyone involved!

POPPY UPDATE: “Hi SFACC Family – Just wanted to end your week on a light note with an update on Poppy (formerly Priscilla). She is so happy here and we are so happy she has joined our family. 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!”

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.”
