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: Flash
Breed: Doberman
Gender: Neutered Male
Age: 1
Contact: Heidi 707-599-1951
General Temperament: When he was 4 months old he was brought into a local veterinarian's office by his owner. He was very sick and malnourished. His legs were weak and turned in to the point where he looked deformed. He was very under weight and had parvo. His owner went to get funds to treat him and never came back for him. I was contacted about fostering him as I have another Doberman. It has been 6 months and he is a whopping 95 pounds (34 when I got him) and perfectly healthy. His legs with proper nutrition grew in perfect and he suffered no permanent issues. He is ready for an active home with someone who wants a very dedicated companion.
General Temperament: Flash has been well socialized since he was a puppy. He is wonderful with other dogs and listens very well off leash and on. He needs a active home. Someone who wants to include him in their daily life and activities. He is great with my 2 young children. Has basic commands and is VERY well crate trained. He is also up to date on all vaccines, flea and heartworm prevention. He is special and I am looking for the true right fit for him.

•A little about Ricco from the 2 yr old stud himself.•
Hello my name is Ricco Suave I love to make new friends! I love running circles on the beach till I can’t hardly stand. I love people and fellow doggo friends. I am very protective on the leash but when I’m off I love Running up to everyone. I don’t really care too much for cats considering the last cat friend clawed my nose.
Just as much as I like to have fun I love my rest, I can hang around the house and be mellow.
I don’t care where I am as long as I’m with my owner.
Is my new owner you?

Unfortunately, my parents can’t keep me because I do not like to be alone. I have “separation anxiety”
And they both work 2 full time jobs. They are very sad they can’t keep my cute self.
Hope your day wasn’t too ruff. See ya soon!
