My husband and I adopted little black puppy Ranger (called Ajax back then) from SF SPCA when we were on a work vacation. We saw Ranger online, and when we met him in person, we just knew it was meant to be! Ranger slept patiently in my lap on the long drive home, and quickly become one of the family.
Dovah (our other smaller, golden dog) and Ranger have become the absolute best of friends and are doggie brothers now. They cuddle together on the couch all the time and love playing and running together. Thank you for helping to bring us together!

One afternoon a co-worker of mine showed me a picture of the two young kittens she had been fostering in her home. As she explained that they were almost at 2 lbs and about ready to head back to the SPCA for adoption, I fell in love with one. The tiny-faced, calico kitten with the bright green eyes made my heart melt.
Now it has been over a year and Roxie melts the heart of everyone she meets – even my Dad who used to be very strict on the “no pets” rule. She runs around the house like she owns the place and reminds me of how grateful she is for a home every night when she curls up with me in bed. Thank you for this wonderful love of mine, SF SPCA, & keep up the amazing work!!
THANK YOU for connecting me with the most amazing little dog in the whole world.
Back on Father’s Day I adopted the three-legged chihuahua puppy you all had named “Jimmy Johnson.” Since then he’s been renamed Trike (as in Tricycle) and I am SO HAPPY to have him in my life.
A big thank you to the volunteer Mark (I hope I got your name right!) for thrusting him into my arms and sparking the adoption.
Trike is totally confident on his three legs, and runs, climbs, and goes up and down stairs like it’s nothing special. In fact, he LOVES running and is happiest when he gets to let loose at the park.
He’s gentle and funny and the best cuddler. And he gets along so well with my cat Noodle (who is easily 5 times his size). They play and chase each other and are turning into fast friends. I really couldn’t be happier.
I’m attaching two photos for you to see how he healed up (and how cute he still is!)
Thank you again,
After ten days at home, I thought you might like to hear how Arizona and Raquel are doing. Despite their rough starts before they arrived at the shelter, they’re each settling in wonderfully at home. They’ve got very distinct personalities, but they’ve clearly decided they’re on the same team and have become fast friends — they even take turns during play time.
Arizona had her thirty day post-op check-up, and she’s healing well from her fractured leg and surgery. She still has a slight “gangsta walk,” but the vet’s happy with her progress and expects her full range of motion to come back within a few weeks. Raquel is still her playful, cuddle-buggy self.
Thank you again for everything — it’s only been a short while but already I can’t imagine my apartment without them.
