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:
General Temperament:
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. 
The following animals are currently available for private adoption:
Name: Ben
Breed: St. Bernard 
Gender: Neutered Male
Age: 5 years
Contact: George (530) 229-4352
General Temperament: Ben loves getting hugs and kisses from people. He enjoys walks on the beach. He has been around kids of all ages and does great! He might do well in a home where he is the only dog. He is a big boy who could really bring joy to one family! 

Name: Skye
Breed: Blue Healer Mix
Gender:Spayed Female
Age: 6 years
Contact: Scott 707-616-3919
General Temperament: Skye is very sweet! She is a loving dog who loves to cuddle. She has been good around other dogs and kids. She could use some training because she does dig in the yard and jumps up on people. She knows the commands sit, shake, and howdy. She needs a loving family that will love her for a lifetime. 

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: Bonny
Breed: Leonberger
Gender: Spayed Female
Age: 3 years old
Contact:  Robert 707-616-0639
General Temperament: Bonny is a super friendly pup she will do what you ask. She is a very loyal and smart. She loves all other pets and never barks or pulls on a leash or tether! She loves kids and all people! We walk on the beach every morning and she loves the water! She is super fit and healthy. She has all her shots and we just got a renewed license and a rabies vaccination this month!

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.

Name: Tugboat
Age: 6

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.
