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:

Name:       Maddie
Breed:        Aust Kelpie Cross
Gender:     Spayed / Female
Age:            7 years old
Born:          6-1-11
Color:        Black, Brown, and White / Tri Color
 
Characteristics:  Maddie is a sweet lovable dog who loves camping, swimming, and chasing tennis balls. She can be a little over exited when going out but soon calms down and listens well. She can be food aggressive towards other animals and is a dominant female. Does well with people she is introduced to and  children.  Maddie is about 60 pounds. She loves to be cuddled and loved on, like she is a small lap dog. She needs a large yard and someone who can give her a lot of attention and loves to take her places. Maddie can get bored with nothing to do. When camping she stays within about 50 yards and entertains herself.  Maddie has a great nose, she finds and kills rats, mice, moles and other small pests and would be a perfect hunting dog except for the fact she does not like guns or loud similar noises.

Name: Ruby

Breed: Shepherd mix
Gender: Female (spayed) 
Age: 2.5 years
Contact: Danielle 707-362-6211
General Temperament: Ruby is a sweet, loyal dog. She is housebroken, very calm, knows all basic commands and is obedient; however, she is territorial and has gotten out of our yard. When she got out, she bit two separate dogs on two separate occasions. She would make a great companion in a yard where children do not leave gates open from time to time or on a property that does not have other dogs nearby. She's friendly to known other dogs when off of her territory, ok in the community and ok in dog parks when she is not "defending" her home. She is sweet and kind to her people. We're very sad to see her go, as we rescued her from Craigslist last October. Please help us find a good home soon.

Meet Tugboat!
Tugboat was recently surrender to Humboldt Spay/Neuter Network when his previous family realized they could no longer supply the care Tugboat needed. Tugboat is a sleek, gray male cat who is around the age of 6years old. Tugboat is currently growing his hair back, as his extreme flea allergies left him patchy and in pain - hence his very cute new digs! Tugboat has been in the presence of both dogs and other felines and has done well with slowly making friends. With a somewhat doglike personality, Tugboat loves to fetch, play tug-o-war, and has been known to drool a little here or there. Tugboat loves a good lap cuddle or even a short walk outside with his leash and harness! We are hoping to find our sweet Tugboat his new future forever family, one that is able to give him all of the help and love he needs to continue being a healthy and happy kitty.

Name: Chako
Breed: Lab mix
Neutered male
Contact: Aimee 971-601-0334
Characteristics:  We are so sad to have to find a new home for our buddy Chako. Unfortunately he is uncomfortable with little kids. We have a small child and another one on the way. He has made it clear that we cannot trust him around our 1 year old. He has snapped at other children as well. He wouldn’t run up and attack a kid. He just does his best to avoid them. When a child is old enough to give him commands and throw the ball for him he’s ok. 
 We rescued him from the shelter when he was about 1 year old. He’s now around 7. He’s a lab mix and loves going on runs, hikes, loves the beach and also likes to just hang out with his humans.
 His best friend is our cat. He gets along with other dogs as well. He does act a bit dominant when meeting new dogs but doesn’t try to fight with them. Although he will respond to aggressive behavior.
 He has an environmental allergy. It starts to makes him itchy if we don’t bath him after he’s been at the river or out in nature. We try to give him baths 2 to 4 times a month with gentle shampoo. We also clean and dry his ears if he’s been in water. 
 He’s up to date on all his shots and has been well taken care of. He would do well  in many households that do not have young children. He would also do well with a single person looking for a companion.           
 He’s a mellow boy and doesn’t bark much. If he barks it’s a good idea to go check it out and see why. His bark is big and I appreciate it when he lets me know something or someone is around the house. He’s also super affectionate. If you want to meet him our number is 971-601-0334.

Name: Zena
Breed: Pit Bull and Catahoula mix
spayed female
Age: 1 year old
Xena has a lot of energy! I do believe she would love to have a friend to play with throughout the day, she currently has a 14 year old dog that she loves to play with but the 14 year old can only put up with so much. She is part cattahoula and is very much a hunter/chaser so unfortunately she chases cats/chickens etc so she would fit best somewhere without those. She is a lover for sure and will sit right in your lap if given the chance. She is great with kids however she is still so young and energetic and sometime forgets her strength. She definitely needs someone who can give lots of attention and get her energy out. Xena weighs 70 pounds.

Name: Patches
Breed: Calico Short hair cat

Age: 13
Characteristics: Big beautiful eyes, timid, soft, loud purrs, loyal, loves warm places, Spayed.
General temperament: Patches is a wonderfully shy senior kitty. She’s on the small side, very sweet, but scared of new people and other pets. She would be best as an only indoor pet. Once she warms up to you, however she’s very cuddly. She especially loves to cuddle in bed with you or on a heating pad. We’ve had her since she was a kitten and we love her to bits but unfortunately our house has become too busy and crowded to give her the peaceful retirement she deserves. She is litter trained and has no health issues. She is also up to date on shots. Please consider giving this beautiful senior cat a better home and life.

Luke
Breed: Domestic Medium/Longhair
Gender: Male 
Age: 11 years
Characteristics: white mask, top of head and back mostly grey, white bib-like mane, eyeliner-like markings under eyes, dark grey tail.
General temperament (e.g. good with other animals (dogs, cats) &/or people/kids, house/litter-trained, other personal habits): Litter-trained, totally indoors, shy at first but loves attention, mostly quiet, great with companion cat Coco, rarely active during the day, mostly stays out of the way of our friendly Newfie. 
Coco
Breed: Domestic Tabby
Gender: Female 
Age: 11 years
Characteristics: Brown/black, leopard-like spots on belly, raccoon-striped tail, floppy belly that sways a bit when she walks :)
General temperament (e.g. good with other animals (dogs, cats) &/or people/kids, house/litter-trained, other personal habits): Litter-trained though prefers own box, great with people and often vocal, great with companion cat Luke, has energetic moments but sleeps most of the day, mostly indoors but likes to venture outside briefly for some air though never stays out long, doesn't mind being or sleeping near our large Newfie as long as he keeps his nose to himself.
We are two life-long buddies searching for a new home. One of our people now has asthma and we must find a home very soon. Our people rescued us together from a shelter when we were kittens. Luke is a few months older than Coco and was born near the railroad in Eureka. Luke is a little quirky and skittish. He usually keeps to his kitty condo. He really needs his private, safe space. Coco, on the other hand, is very outgoing and super social. She loves sleeping in her “bed in a box” but she would also love to curl up in your lap and even sleep on your bed. She knows to sleep near the bottom of the bed so no one rolls over on her. We share everything, though Coco sometimes gets a little overzealous when it comes to food. Luke prefers to hang out with one person at a time. He is not as comfortable with dogs as Coco is, though neither of them are really excited about canine friends. That said, Coco has been known to curl up close to her doggie housemate (a Newfie!) quite peacefully. As long as her canine friend doesn’t constantly stick his nose in her face, Coco seems to be just fine. Both of us are litter boxtrained, though Coco sometimes prefers to go outside. There’s just something about it! If Coco does not have access to the outdoors, she would prefer her own clean litterbox. We would prefer to stay together as we get along really well and often curl up together. We like to play, especially in the evenings when Luke is more awake. We are generally quiet unless we need attention or are getting attention. Luke loves one-on-one attention and Coco likes to have conversations with her people. She prefers to “chuff” or make dolphin-like sounds rather than “meow.” We can’t wait to meet you and our new forever home!

Name: Edd McMuffin
Age: 6 year old neutered male
Breed: Lynx Point Siamese
Contact: Danielle 801-673-0076
The cutest little muffin that ever was,  Edd loves watching cartoons and nature shows, sunbathing and late night snuggles. He's very goofy and easy to love. He loves to carry on a conversation if someone is willing to talk to him. He's an excellent listener. He suffers from a little feline social anxiety, so he will probably be happiest having an owner all to himself. He's greedy: I never said he was perfect!

Red: 2 years old
Blue: 3 years old
These are my dogs Red and Blue. Blue is the white one and Red is obviously the red one. I've had blue since she was three months old and I've had Red since he was six weeks old. These two have traveled all the way from Las Vegas with me and we've had such good times together. They both enjoy long hikes and love love going to the beach. They are both sweet and friendly. Both are great with children and enjoy being cuddled and playing fetch. It saddens me to have to put them up for adoption but I am unable to bring them with me. I want them to have a nice backyard to play in and a great family who will love them both and take good care of them. If you think that you have room in your heart to take care of them and love them as much as I have please feel free to contact me.
