A No-Kill Shelter Saving Lives Everyday

Private Adoptions

The Sequoia Humane Society (SHS) aims to help find permanent, loving homes for all adoptable animals.  Due to space limitations, we cannot admit every animal looking for a new home into our shelter.  We have therefore reserved a space on our website to help pet owners distribute information about animals they need to rehome.  All cats and dogs posted for private adoption must be spayed/neutered.  In order to post a private adoption, we need a statement granting SHS permission to post your contact information on our website and Facebook.  We also suggest that you sign up for the Friends for Life Animal Rescue "Matchmaker" program, and post fliers in vet offices, pet stores and around your neighborhood.
If you are looking to rehome a pet, please send an email to [email protected]including:

Name: Duckie/K.W
Breed: DSH Grey/White
Gender: Spayed Female
Age: 5 Months
Contact: [email protected] or call 707-442-7729
General Temperament: Duckie LOVES other animals, she currently lives with 3 other cats and 4 dogs, that she is always wrestling with or cuddling against. She has a medical condition called pectus excavatum, but you would never know she was different! Her chest concaves inward, and does create a smaller cavity for her heart and lungs. The only time you notice her condition is after playing hard, she breathes faster than a normal cat. She should remain and indoor only cat (or monitored outdoor time) due to her condition. She loves to sleep and cuddle on the best, but does not like to be held tights as she isn't able to breathe well if her chest is compressed. She also has an obsession with socks! She has been looking for a forever home for 4 months now!

Name: Twoface
Breed: Tortoise Shell
Gender: Spayed Female
Age: 8 or 9 years
Contact: Cindy 707-498-9978
General Temperament: Two Face is a loving kitty. She's around 8 or 9 years old ( to the best of my knowledge). She's been spayed. She is great around the young and old. Her teeth are gone, but she has no trouble eating crunchy food or birds. She needs a home where she can be constantly loved. She gets along with other cats and if around a friendly dog I'm sure they would be friends too, that's her disposition. She deserves a home with lots of love.


Name: Payton
Breed: Pitbull
Gender: Spayed Female
Age: 5 years
Contact: Emily or James (707) 599-4826
General Temperament: Meet Payton. She is a 5 year old Pit Bull female looking for her forever home. Payton is a very active dog who wants cuddles from anyone she meets. The more pets and chin rubs the better! She is an incredibly sweet and loving girl who is quite the talker. She currently lives with an older dog and loves to play but is very excitable upon meeting new dogs and people so she would require an experienced dog owner who will have the patience introduce her to new situations. But it doesn’t take long for her to become your best friend and have her think that she’s a 55lb lap dog. She has had in-home training and will do basic commands such as sit, lay down and go to her bed at dinner time but is very smart so you have to keep up with her.

She would do best in a home with older children as she gets excited too easily to be around little ones and a home with no cats. She loves to go out on adventures so someone who is an experienced handler and can walk her daily would be ideal. She does try to pull to meet up with other dogs and will chase after cats if she sees them. Payton came to us with a mite condition which is controlled by half of an anti-itching pill in her morning food. This girl loves to eat and is very food motivated. She is spayed and up to date on all of her shots. She has been very loved and looking for a home that will be with her forever.



Name: Hawk
Breed: Golden Lab/Akita
Gender: Neutered Male
Age: 10.5 years (Senior)
Contact: Harold (707) 498-0470
General Temperament: Hawk is great with people and loves kids. He does not always like other animals, so a home where he is the only pet might be good. Hawk has been an inside/outside dog. He will need a fenced yard. If you have any questions about Hawk please contact Harold.
