We wanted to thank you for the beautiful bunny.”

This is Mace’s second Christmas in his forever home. He loves lounging underneath the Christmas tree each morning and waiting for holiday treats in the kitchen.

Beautiful Cannoli’s adopter sent us this great update in November: “As this strange Thanksgiving is almost upon us, I’ve been reflecting on what’s gotten me through this year and I felt like I simply must share this with your shelter. I adopted a kitten from your shelter in August 2019 (her name was Piña Colada then) and every day I’m in awe at how perfect this cat is. Not only has she grown into the most beautiful cat, but she is also the sweetest, cuddliest, most talkative cat I’ve ever met. I’m so thankful that your facility made the adoption process simple yet thorough and allowed sweet Cannoli to be in my life and help my roommate and I through some very tough times. She’s the funniest most playful girl!”

Adorable Indigo Blue, formerly Brenda, was adopted from ACC November 2011 and is looking festive in her fancy collar!

A happy tails update for Daisy’s one-year adoptaversary: “It’s been one year since I adopted Daisy (right) from SFACC. She is the happiest girl in the world. She loves cuddles, squeaky tennis balls, and her big brother Rocky. I could not imagine my life without and I am so thankful to SFACC for bringing her into my life. Thank you for all you do!”

Gorgeous Iris was adopted a few weeks ago and we already have an update! “She loves her new toys especially the wobbly mouse and the feather toy. She also loves to run around and zoom through her crinkly tunnel. She is a very good hunter and loves to play :)”

Sweet scruffimuffin pup Kevin (formerly Andy) was adopted earlier this year: “Just wanted to thank you again for all your help with Andy/Kevin’s adoption.

Wanted to share a few photos and just let you know we’re both happy as can be and settling into our life together.”

A wonderful Good Samaritan Story: “A BIG THANK YOU goes out the the staff at San Francisco Animal Care and Control for helping to keep this lady safe. Last night I woke up to the scared barks of a pitbull that was dumped at the church across the street from my house. This sweet girl could be Oona’s sister. I brought her food, water and a blanket and she was quiet for the rest of the night. When the SFACC opened we gave them a call and they were able to gain her trust and get her in the truck. I will check in on her and hope we can find her a great home. …Leash donations going out this week to Muttville, Rocket Dog, Santa Fe Animal Shelter, Lily’s Legacy and a bunch of other rescues! Thank you everyone for your support during this difficult year. Be kind to each other, support each other and stay positive” …Lovely Cora was adopted about a week after arriving at SFACC. (NOTE: The person who brought Cora food and comfort and called SFACC works with Ropes for Rescues.)
