January 2019 Adoptions

In January, SFACC adopted out 49 cats, 27 dogs, and 17 small animals.

A cozy Caturday adoption update about Bebop (now Seamus): “He’s such a sweet kitty, we’re all in love with him!”

Hobbit: “Today I came home to my #foreverhome with my new mom and dad thank you  @sfanimalcareandcontrol for taking care of me on this adventure.

Long-time resident Bun France has been adopted.

Gorgeous senior cat Yin Tao has found his forever home. Hooray!

Makira was redeemed!

Sweet Lucy has left the building.

Triller, who was found living in a warehouse, was adopted by one of our volunteers.

The adopters of Charlie (formerly Charles, adopted Dec. ‘18) report “…we cannot imagine our lives without him. He loves snuggling in bed, eating peanut butter and playing in the office with his buddy Milo!”

“I wanted to write a quick note to share that it’s been 2 years since I adopted my sweet girl, Beatrix. I adopted her on 1/15/17 and her name at ACC was ‘Navy‘. I celebrate her birthday on the same day as her “gotcha” day so she’s also turning 3 years old!
Adopting Beatrix was the very best decision I’ve made, not just in recent years, but probably ever. She’s a playful, well-mannered girl with a huge heart and devotion to those who love her. She’s an expert cuddler and mischievous scamp. She keeps me sane, makes me laugh every day and helps me refocus on what’s important in my life – her. She’s my souldog. Like a lot of people say about dogs, they give us more than we’ll ever be able to give to them. Each day is a joy and I’m so lucky we found each other at ACC.”

Fluffy Fenton found his forever family.

Bruno’s family♥. They are very thrilled and excited that he is settling in nicely: “Hi Georjean, please pass my sincere thanks over to all the staff there–you were all great, very friendly and made the whole adoption experience wonderful. Bruno is now known as Kitty-Kane.
Sonee is a mixed lab we adopted from your shelter back in early May 2007. Kitty definitely likes his tennis balls, they can keep his attention for a while. Both dogs are getting used to each other, with Sonee trying to set some boundaries. Sonee hasn’t been around a puppy for a while–Kitty has a lot of energy whereas Sonee loves her nap times. Last night Kitty slept in his crate very well. Thanks!
Harbir”

A #HappyTails update from the adopters of Pax (adopted last Dec.): “He’s a happy pup for sure! Such a love and cuddlebug. He has so much energy but at the same time can be the laziest pup we’ve seen when he wants to cuddle with us. He has the cutest personality and wherever we take him, he always stops people so they can say hi to him and give him love. He’s growing up so quickly and doing so well in his training classes. Thanks for bringing him into our lives!”

Guppy (adopted in Dec.) left ACC with his new dad and went right to the toy store!

Gorgeous goofball Daxter has gone home! Happy trails big guy!

Moon Pie has left the building! He’s going to be living with a canine big brother and sister.

University of the Pacific Giving Tree

In their third year of raising funds for Friends of SFACC, Kimmel Kington and her team (Group 2D at the Univ. of the Pacific Arthur A. Dugoni School of Dentistry) decided to go for the glitter. The school holds a “Giving Tree Holiday Drive” in December for different nonprofit organizations to advocate and fundraise for their cause. “We had two days of paper ornament making for the staff, and as you can see in the photos, lots of people had lots of fun! It was so relaxing to go back to grade school days with glue and glitter!”
They advocated for adoption by printing full-size photos of adoptable animals from the SFACC website and hanging them around their table. Kimmel and her team raised $665.84 for SFACC this year. “We had some competition from several student fund raising drives but we also got some toys, treats, towels, and at least one person went to your online wish list.” Yay!
