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 shelter@sequoiahumane.orgincluding:

General temperament (e.g. good with other animals (dogs, cats) &/or people/kids, house/litter-trained, other personal habits): 
Please attach a photo of your pet to the e-mail, in JPG format. Your listing will be posted for 90 days (please notify as soon as the animal is adopted).

Disclaimer: The Sequoia Humane Society does not guarantee the health or temperament of any private adoption animal listed on its website. Private adoption agreements are between the animal's original guardian and the individual looking to adopt the animal. All parties using this website agree to release SHS from any responsibility related to the private adoption process.

My Name Is Jennifer Dempsey

My Dog's name is Isis. She is a female Miniature Australian Shepard. She is 11 years old. She is about 26 lbs. She has a lovely temperament and gets along with other dogs, cats and children. She has a benign tumor on her back end. After extensive blood work and biopsy my veterinarian discovered that it was not a carcinoma. Other than being unsightly to an unloving eye, it doesn't give her any trouble. Isis also has developed an enlarged heart.She doesn't cough and does not require medication. She can no longer exercise as she once did as it causes her to be fatigued. She just likes to lay down, eat carrots and be a good listener. My situation is complicated and personal, but I am nearing desperation to find her a safe, warm place to retire. Please help if you can. I have been trying to adopt her our privatly for two moths and my time is running out.

Thank You.  Contact

Gigi is a spayed female Chihuahua.  She is 3 years old.  Gigi was rescued from some homeless people who were not caring for her properly.  She had never seen a veterinarian and just finished weaning a litter of puppies.  Gigi is up to date on her vaccinations and microchipped.  Gigi is an active little girl.  She is very easy to train and would probably make a very good agility dog.  She loves to jump, she can climb a ladder and is just a very athletic dog.  Gigi is very fast and loves playing chase with other dogs no matter how big they are.  She sleeps with her owner under the covers.  Gigi loves to play fetch, tug of war, any kind of doggie came.  She loves her walks and is a great little hiker.  If you are interested in Gigi please email me.  Include in your email as much information as possible about your current living situation, your ability to provide this sweetie with a wonderful home.


Rocco is a neutered male 3 year old male chihuahua.  He gets along great with other dogs and cats.  He is up to date on vaccinations, microchipped, and receives monthly flea treatment.  Rocco is 7 pounds and this is a perfect weight for this little fellow.  Rocco is very affectionate.  He likes to be held and he loves his walks on and off leash.  As with most chihuahua's he loves sleeping with his caretaker and burrows under the covers.  Rocco originally came from a high kill shelter in Southern California.  If you are interested in Rocco please send an email.  Please include as much information about yourself and your situation as possible, such as prior experience with Chihuahua's, your housing situation, your ability to support Rocco, why you are wanting to adopt a dog such as Rocco and anything else that would demonstrate that you would provide this little guy with a wonderful home.  Email to
