I adopted Duckie (originally Deckie) back in January. At the time, I was looking for a partner in crime, and I found the best little four-legged friend I’ve had since I was a little girl. We had some bathroom issues and separation anxiety in the beginning, but once he realized he could relax, that I wasn’t going to give him up, those problems are almost in the past.
He had a rough start at the beginning of the year, but with several hundred miles of road trips together and many more planned, the upcoming year is looking to be even better for him. Waking up to him sleeping next to me every day or him being so excited to see me when I come home has been worth the accidents, and I can’t wait to see what we get ourselves into in the future!
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,
