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: Banjo
Breed: Cattle Dog/Rottweiler mix
Gender: Neutered Male
Age: 5 years
Contact: Christine 707-672-6162
General Temperament: Sweet, goofy, energetic. Loves his ball, to chew on sticks, walks, the beach. He’s a great dog for the right people! Walks great on leash and with most other dogs. Good in the house. Highly sensitive to training and has had group and private training. Needs careful introductions to strangers but warms up quickly to almost everyone. We need to rehome him because he is not trustworthy with children, they make him nervous, and we have kids around a lot. Needs an adult only home. Another dog buddy would be great! No cats.


Name: Ryder
Breed: Cat - Domestic Short Haired
Gender: Male - Neutered
Age: 1-3 years
Contact: Cassandra - Call/Text: 846-3624, Email: [email protected]
General Temperament: His name is Ryder and he’s a DSH tabby around 1-3 years old. He’s neutered, microchipped, vaccinated, and has tested negative for Fel Leukemia. He is extremely friendly with other cats and people...he is good with dogs but still shy around them as he hasn’t seen them before moving in with me about 5 weeks ago. He is a very affectionate cat and loves attention. He is indoor only and has been his whole life so should definitely stay that way. I’m hoping to adopt him out to a home with less animals since I have too many right now and he needs more attention! Thank you.

Name: Edd McMuffin
Breed: Cat - Lynx Point Siamese
Gender: Male - Neutered
Age: 6 years
Contact: Danielle (801) 673-0076
General Temperament: 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!

Gender: Female & Male
Age: 3 years & 2.5 years
Contact: (707) 362-4699

Missy takes a little bit of time to come out of her shell, but once she adjusts she is a cuddle bug! Bear's current owner says he is okay with cats and other dogs, and has been around toddlers before.

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

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: Hawk

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.
