Hi… my name is London,

Adopted 1-7-17

I was part of the “city” litter of kittens that arrived at TALGV after our mother was killed by dogs in Nogales. We were truly lucky when the owner of the house rescued us and brought us here, and I was doubly lucky to have been hand-raised by a foster dad and then find a home almost immediately when I was old enough. Now life’s changed though, as my beloved mom died recently and I’m back again, hoping the third time will be a charm for me. I’m a lovely buff and white girl and just as gentle and loving as you’d expect for a gal who’s lived with an older person all her life, so why not let me be the best part of your new year?

Hi… my name is Gingersnap,

Adopted 2-8-17

Boy, some older cats sure do forget how to play with youngsters! You’d think having a playful little bugger like me around would add a little zip to their lives, but in my case, the prissy old thing that I shared the house with just wasn’t having any of it. I know it was hard for my human mom to make the decision to relinquish me, but since I’m young (and gorgeous, they say!), she felt an active family, maybe with kids, would appreciate my antics and enthusiasm for life more than a settled one. Mom said I’m a “loving kitty” who adores all kinds of toys and sitting in your lap, so if life’s been a little dull for you lately, my goal is to rectify that!

Hi… my name is Panini,

Adopted 11-30-16

I arrived at TALGV with a badly matted coat, so I was really happy to get my hair cut! I’d also faced being dropped off at a farm where I couldn’t stay permanently. (The word “dumped” was used, but that’s so harsh, it made me feel almost as uncomfortable as those miserable tangles.) At the farm, there were 3 other dogs and 3 cats, and we all got along. There were some little kids who scared me; I’d shake when they came around, but, nevertheless, the people there said I was “very loving” and “very playful.” The volunteers here add that I’m also “very dear.” Won’t you tell them that we need to meet? I’m a 7-year-old beige Shih-Tzu male, a little guy (12 pounds) who’ll bring a lot of joy to your days!

Hi… my name is Skittles,

Adopted September 23, 2016

Could I get lucky in the adoption department just one more time? My dog buddy, Eli, and I had a wonderful home with our person for 1-1/2 years, but due to her health issues, we came back to TALGV. Before my home with her, I was in a group of pups found in a hole off the highway! Today, I’m still young, a beautiful Catahoula Leopard mix female, whose coat is black and very light brown. I’m leash trained and already know “stay” and “sit,” and I’m sure I could learn lots more if you want to teach me. If you take me home, I’ll do my best every day to make you glad you did. How about we meet and see if the perfect place for me is with you!

Hi… my name is Ben,

Adopted July 11, 2016

When my person suddenly had her own medical issues and couldn’t keep me anymore, I became a TALGV dog with a great foster mom. She calls me feisty and fun, a happy dog with an outgoing personality and lots of confidence. I love toys and people (a great combination!) and currently live peacefully with a shepherd mix dog and a cat (who rubs against me sometimes—what’s that about?) My big vocabulary includes hums, whines and yips—especially during my bath, which I love! And about those baths—I have allergies and require special food, medicine and shampoo; Foster Mom can explain more. She’s also had me on a diet and I’m looking good at 24 pounds! I’m a 3-1/2-year-old Wire Fox Terrier who’d love to be your special guy. Could we meet today?

Hi… my name is Jack,

Adopted June 9, 2016

Have you ever been completely happy for someone else, but a little sad for yourself at the same time? That’s what I’m feeling because my dog friend Jill was adopted and I’m still looking for my new home. We were lost together. For one week we stayed in a neighborhood where a kind lady gave us food and water, and then she brought us here. Jill found her new people quickly—no surprise since we’re both adorable—and now I’m hoping it’s my turn! I’m just 2 years old and a little guy; at 8-1/2 pounds, I’m a great size for playing and cuddling, fun and quiet times. Won’t you please take me home today and introduce me to the good life—the happy life we can share for a long time to come!

Hi… my name is Prince,

Adopted June 21, 2016

I know what it is to be left behind, but that doesn’t have to be the worst thing that could happen. My person moved and couldn’t have his dogs at his new place, so now I’m here, well taken care of and watched over until my special someone finds me. My former person said I like children and I’m good with people, and at just 9 pounds, I’m easy to hold and cuddle. At my previous home, I was an outdoor dog, so you can imagine how much I’ll love the comforts of an indoor life! Add your love to that and I’ll be in little doggie heaven! I’m 3 years old, a Wire Haired Chihuahua/Poodle mix male, blonde with soft brown ears and a friendly disposition. Won’t you please make me yours today!

Hi… my name is Sammy,

I have a message for all you felines out there who think the grass is greener on the outside – it’s just not what it’s cracked up to be! I’d been surviving on my own for many months in Madera Reserve when the nice lady who was feeding me finally brought me here, and I have to say it’s really great not having to look over my shoulder all the time! I’m a bit reserved at the moment as things have changed so quickly in my life, but given my Siamese roots, you know that I’ve got friendliness, intelligence, and playfulness in my genes, and after I sort myself out, I’ll be an endlessly fascinating companion! Now admit it, you know that’s what you’ve been looking for!
