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: Akela
Breed: Lab/Pit mix
Gender: Female
Age: 5 years
Contact: Ashley - (858) 805-1977
General Temperament: I am hoping to re-home a very beautiful and special five-year-old lab pit mix who would need to be the only dog in the household with no children. She has never shown aggression to an adult/human. She has only acted out towards other dogs when she was in a new place or when it was with an unfamiliar dog and territory was involved (ex. near her food bowl, over toys). She currently lives with a cat and I have never had an issue with her and him together. She has lived with other dogs, but this included weeks of walks together prior to her living with them and a lot of precaution as she is a big girl and I never want to see another dog get hurt or put her in a position where she might act out because of her past. She is a happy go lucky girl in neutral places like the beach (it’s one of my favorite things to see that smile on her face while she runs on the beach), but I have had to be careful even in these situations because again I want to avoid any conflict and make sure she and other dogs are safe. She is better off-leash in these environments; it is only on leash where I have to be careful. I believe her potential aggression towards other unfamiliar dogs will improve with someone more confident in training dogs and if she had an overall better environment that would help her continue to feel more confident with herself.

Name: Scooter
Breed: Domestic Shorthair - Tabby
Gender: Female - Spayed
Age: 1-2 years
Contact: Kerri - (603) 303-2968
General Temperament: She is super playful, loves outdoors but also a comfy spot on the couch. She does not mind hanging out with a dog, or other cats, she loves to play chase if other cats are into it. She seems to be super social and friendly towards anyone she meets. She does not love being picked up, but she tolerates it, and she is getting better every day. Although, I'm not sure kids are great for this little lady. She is a great hunting cat, she caught a couple field mice in the last few weeks. She is litter box trained.


Name: Koda
Breed: Rottweiler/Doberman/German Shepherd
Gender: Female - Spayed
Age: 8 months
Contact: Jonah - (707) 672-3417
General Temperament: Koda is a sweet, intelligent pup. She has lots of energy and wants to learn. She has done well in basic obedience training. She is crate trained and potty trained. She loves dogs, but is best suited with other large dogs due to her playful nature. She does chase our cat, but doesn't hurt him once she catches up to him. Koda has a lot of energy and would love an active home. She is good with kids, but again she is a large puppy so I would be careful with little ones. She loves people, she wants to lean up against you and snuggle on the couch. We are sad to search for a new placement, but we have an older dog with hip dysplasia and the play time is severely impacting her quality of life.
