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: Dana
Breed: Unknown/mixed
Gender: Female, spayed
Age: About 2 years old
Contact: Kate, phone or text 707- 616-7207
General Temperament: Dana is very sweet, loyal, and loving companion, with lots of energy. She understands some basic commands, like sit, will come when called, and is good on a leash. She would do best in a home without other dogs, at least for a little bit, as she needs some more training around proper dog socialization. She has a bit of separation anxiety, and her owner recently died, so it would be best to have someone who understands dog behavior and psychology and has time to dedicate to her assimilation into a new home. She is spayed and up on all her shots and heartworm meds.

Name: Cinda
Breed: Greyhound/Pit Mix
Gender: Female, Spayed
Age: 4 1/2 years old
Contact: Valerie Franklin (707) 834-2946
General Temperament: Cinda is a beautiful, sweet dog that loves people and has a lot of energy. She is not good with other dogs, especially on leash and on her own property. She is indifferent to cats and has been fine around them. She has been spayed and is up-to-date on all of her shots. Unfortunately, she is in need of surgery for an ACL tear in her back leg and I am unable to take the time off of work to get her to Medford for the surgery and in addition, she will need to be crated for three weeks after the surgery. It will be another four to six months before she is fully able to resume what she loves to do - that is to play fetch. She loves her tennis ball and is the best "chuck it" dog I've ever seen. Because I work 8+ hours a day and am single, I am not able to provide her with the care that is required. With that being said, I would be willing to pay for the surgery. This is breaking my heart, but I don't have the option of keeping her.

Name: Babygirl
Breed: Domestic Shorthair mix
Gender: Spayed Female
Age: 3-5 years old (estimated)
Contact: Tammy at [email protected] or (707)349-2509
General Temperament: She is very sassy, loves attention, treats, has set her boundaries with my males and seems to stand her ground. When she is tired of attention she'll let you know with a gentle swat or bite. She is not a big cat small but very mighty. She was an indoor cat but recently abandoned so outdoor now, gets along with small dogs and other pets I have.

Name: Tom Pooper; AKA Thomas
Breed: Polydactyl Russian Blue/Maine Coon Mix; Grey with a few white hairs in his tail
Gender: Male; Neutered
Age: 14 months, born May 2020
Contact: Jessica 707-499-7269
General Temperament: Tom is a big fluffy boy that thinks he is "top dog". He loves getting brushed and cuddled. He is a hunter, who wants to spend a lot of time outside, but comes inside for naps and attention. He LOVES water and will ask for the bathtub to be turned on to get a drink. He doesn't mind being cradled like a baby, but will let you know when he's had enough. He likes to play with his brother Foxy and would enjoy staying with him, but would also do just fine as an only cat. He does not mind dogs or children, but seems to prefer humans who will gently dominate him. He has some matted fur and needs a human will will brush him.
Tom has an infection on his paw and needs medical attention, although he is handling/hiding it well and has not shown signs of distress. I have applied Neosporin several times, but I've been unable to resolve the issue on my own.

Name: Foxy
Breed: Cat - Russian Blue & Maine Coon Mix; Grey with white chest, paws & whiskers
Gender: Male, neutered
Age: 14 months, born May 2020
Contact: Jessica 707-499-7269
General Temperament: Foxy is a big, sweet boy that loves to cuddle his humans and play with his brother Tom (also listed). He is an indoor/outdoor kitty and will knock on the door when he wants to come inside. He enjoys rubbing against his doggy housemate and is pretty good with small children; although he does sometimes use his claws in a playful manner or when happily kneading his humans. He would prefer to stay with his brother, but would probably be okay just getting lots of human attention. He has some matted fur and needs a human who will brush him regularly.

Name: Lila
Breed: Black American Shorthair
Gender: Female
Age: approximately 3 years old
Contact: call or text (530)339-6852 or email [email protected]
General Temperament: Lila, the female cat, is a chunky little lady who is super shy and sweet. She prefers to hang out inside, but does sniff around on my balcony from time to time. She takes time to warm up and hides if I have guests over and we are loud or moving about. If everyone in the house is sitting and quieter, she will come out and cautiously explore. Once she warms up, she is even sweeter and more cuddly than Chester and she loves to cuddle in bed at night.

My sister Lila and I would love to find a home together. Both kitties are super sweet and very talkative. They are very bonded to each other and need to find a new home together. Both are spayed/neutered.

Name: Chester
Breed: Black American Shorthair
Gender: Male
Age: Approximately 3 years old
Contact: call or text (530)339-6852 or email [email protected]
General Temperament: Chester, the male cat, is an incredibly social indoor/outdoor cat - I live in an apartment complex and he has made friends with all of my neighbors. He can get moody when he is sleepy and will sometimes claw and hiss when he is disturbed, so he would do best in a home with older kids or all grown folks. Chester loves good pets and to hang out in the sunshine. He also likes to follow me on walks near our home!

My sister Lila and I would love to find a home together. Both kitties are super sweet and very talkative. They are very bonded to each other and need to find a new home together. Both are spayed/neutered.

Name: Reggie
Breed: DSH/Tabby
Gender: Male
Age: 6.5 years old Birthday 12/1/2014
Contact: 925-768-9547
General Temperament: Goofy, snuggly, sensitive but bold, generally fearless, inquisitive.

Reggie loves his brother Frankie, they like to snuggle often but Reggie particularly loves human love snuggles. Reggie likes to run fast and is a goofball about playing, he is good at entertaining himself but he would love for you to play with him. He can be quite vocal at times and likes you to talk to him - especially likes when you sing songs to him about him. Reggie has a tendency to chew on plastic, more so when he is impatient about breakfast or dinner-so keep plastic trash away from him!

Reggie and Frankie love ‘cookie’ time, they’re really into treats.

I would love to be adopted along with my sibling Frankie (also listed), but am also able to go to a forever home alone.

Name: Frankie
Breed: DSH/Tabby
Gender: Male
Age: 6.5 years old Birthday 12/1/2014
Contact: 925-768-9547
General Temperament: mellow, inquisitive, mostly fearless, demanding at times.


Frankie has feline asthma and takes medication 2x a day via oral syringe, he is a good sport about it. The medications are Prednisolone + Theophylline. He is easy going and lazy but he does like to play when prompted. Frankie likes meeting new people and is a friendly gentleman. He likes to chew on cardboard or cornstraw broom brush when he is feeling impatient about his food situation.

I would love to be adopted along with my sibling Reggie (also listed), but am also able to go to a forever home alone.

Name: Nenny
Breed: DSH/Tabby
Gender: Female
Age: 6.5 Birthdate 12/1/2014
Contact: 925-768-9547
General Temperament: Loving, sweet, and loves her siblings but would welcome being an only cat, lazy, inquisitive. Nenny is so very snuggly, bedtime is her favorite. She adapts well to change and moving, as long as there is a bed for her to lay on! Nenny needs to lose some weight, she has lost it before but her quality of life would greatly benefit from a diet. She could stand to be brushed for hours-just show her the brush and she won’t leave you alone! Nenny is attentive and intuitive, she is a great friend to have around.



(5/28/21)


 
Name: Pebbles
Breed: Pitbull
Gender: Female
Age: approximately 12
Contact: 707-725-6154 or email [email protected]
General Temperament: Pebbles is very affectionate and loves giving kisses to new friends. An experienced adopter would be best because she is deaf. She gets along well with calm large dogs and most calm cats. She would do best in a home without children or small dogs that has a fenced yard she can run around in. A nice quiet home with a comfy couch would be ideal for her.
(5/26/21)


 
Name: Xena

Gender: Spayed Female
Age: 4 years
Contact: Marianne 707-502-7037
General Temperament: Xena is a shy girl at first but warms up especially after a treat! She is easy going. Loves to play with every dog she meets and is good with cats.

Name: Arlo
Breed: German Shepherd Mix
Gender: Neutered Male
Age: 2 years

(4/20/21)


 
Name: Braxton
Breed: Pomeranian/Australian Shepherd mix
Gender: Neutered Male
Age: 7 years
Contact: Mary 925-768-5759
General Temperament: He’s a very affectionate dog and loves having his neck and ears scratched. He’s great around people and loves kisses and cuddles but he is wary of other dogs and tends to bark at them so he would be best in a home without at least larger dogs. He also has a pinched nerve in his back for which he is on muscle relaxers and pain killers. You wouldn’t know he has this condition by looking at him, though! He runs in circles when it’s walk time and likes jumping into the car for rides. He is house broken and very smart. He can sit and give you his paw and he has picked up other tricks very quickly.
(3/17/21)


 
Name: Noodle
Breed: DSH
Gender: Spayed Female
Age: 4-5 years
Contact: Maya 831-461-4336
General Temperament: Noodle is a shy girl with new people but will open up to be a loving lap cat as long as you don’t mind her happy drooling and loud purrs. She has been indoor/outdoor for most of her life, and prefers to use the bathroom outside but will use a litter box and is litter trained. Shots are up to date, she is spayed and microchipped. She would be happiest in a home with no other pets and no small children.

Name: Gus
Breed: Brown Tabby DMH
Gender: Neutered Male
Age: 2 years
Contact: Friends for Life at (707) 442-5999 or email [email protected]
General Temperament: Gus is a unique guy. He has lived outdoors most of his life, and would probably be content as a barn cat. However, we think that the right person could bring out his gentler side. Just look at that pet-able fur! Gus is gregarious with other cats and is incredibly playful; he is still learning to trust humans.

Name: Cap'n Morgan
Breed: Black Domestic Short Hair
Gender: Neutered Male
Age: 4 years
Contact: Friends for Life Animal Rescue at (707) 442-5999 or email [email protected]
General Temperament: This handsome man is Cap'n Morgan. Cap'n Morgan is about four years old and is great with other cats and children. However, he especially loves his foster brother, Angel. Cap'n Morgan craves affection, from kisses to cuddles. He makes a strong impression on everyone who visits Friends for Life. He possesses a regal presence and likes to sit up high on the cat tree, surveying his domain. Cap'n Morgan came to us with one eye; we assume it is only befitting of a sea captain.

Name: Angel
Breed: Short Hair Flame Point Siamese
Gender: Neutered Male
Age: 3 years
Contact: Friends for Life at (707) 442-5999 or [email protected]
General Temperament: This goofball is Angel. He is a very large, very active boy. He is a flame point Siamese with beautiful blue eyes. He loves to make friends with people and animals. Angel is always on the lookout for pets and head scratches, but is also very independent. He loves to play, especially with his fellow foster Cap'n Morgan. He came in as a very shy, very timid kitty and has blossomed into a confident boy. Angel is already neutered and has had all of his vaccinations.

Name: Oscar
Breed: Short Hair Brown Tabby
Gender: Neutered Male
Age: 3 years
Contact: Friends for Life at (707) 442-5999 or [email protected]
General Temperament: Meet Oscar, a cuddle-loving brown tabby boy with a fun personality. Oscar is 3 years old and wants nothing more than to spend his day snuggled up to a friend or playing with a fellow cat. Oscar is known at Friends for Life as a total ham; he has lots of funny quirks, such as snoring during a good nap and running to greet all visitors like a little butler. Oscar is an easygoing guy and is great around kids and animals. He was neglected by unkind humans and is a carrier of FIV. Oscar is a healthy cat who would make a perfect addition to any household. If you are a special person looking for a special cat, look no further than Oscar!

Name: Nala
Breed: DLH
Gender: Spayed Female
Age: 6 Years
Contact: Britney 951-514-7680 or 707.633.8567
General Temperament: Nala is a sweet black and white domestic long hair. She's about 6 years old. She can be a bit stand offish or shy but once she warms up, she is loving and bursting with energy. She loves chasing long string-like toys and pretty much anything she can play soccer with across the room. She loves running suddenly and doing parkour where she can. She also likes to curl up in your lap once she eyes that you've been sitting a while. She's a lot of fun and would most like to live in a bigger home.
