Little Chelsea was relinquished to the ACF with Bam Bam. Their family had to relocate and could not take the dogs with them. We couldn’t quite figure out what breed Chelsea is, but she looks like a little Westie, a little Lhasa Apso and maybe a little Shih Tzu, too! All we know for certain is that she is darned cute. A lady came in with Ginger, her perfectly groomed cockapoo, because Ginger was in need of a companion. The two dogs met and got along very well. Because we knew the dogs were OK, we took Chelsea with us for the home visit. She had a ball checking out the trees and bushes and the real grass in the back yard. After inside and out was explored, Chelsea and Ginger began to play. The home has a long hall with shiny hardwood floors, just perfect for chasing a ball and each other. We left with happy hearts knowing Chelsea found a wonderful home.
Her new family has nothing but wonderful things to say about Chelsea. “Ginger could not be happier and neither could we … I feel so fortunate to have connected with Chelsea and really feel like it was somehow meant to be.”
Max was relinquished when his family started having children and could no longer give him the attention he needed. He is a beautiful brindle shepherd/malinois blend. A gentleman serving in the military just returned from a tour in Afghanistan and spotted Max on the website. He came in and Max instantly liked him. Max is very cautious around most men so this was very special. The gentleman had one problem. He had not yet found a place to live since his return. He asked us to please wait until he found a suitable place. Within three days of filing out the application, he found a perfect home and Max was adopted.
Max’s new dad is familiar with this breed as they serve along side the military in Afghanistan. There is a mutual respect between these two. Max has been to dog beach and loves the water. We knew this would be the case as Max and Merry wore themselves out playing in the small pool in the back yard. He has also visited a dog park and loves running and playing with the other dogs.
Fortunately for Max, he was with us for a very short time. Thanks to all who took such good care of him. His bio and picture resulted in the perfect new home for Max.
Pepper came into the ACF as a stray with Pickle. He appears to have some beagle in him and one of the characteristics of the breed is that barking can be a problem — Pepper is a chatterbox! His new home had to be with someone who would not leave him alone for long periods because Pepper can bark for hours on end.
An employee of our public works department saw Merry, another dog for adoption, on a walk. She filled out an application, but both she and her partner work eight hours a day. When we spoke of our concern — Merry is very active — she said her mother lives two blocks away and has a small dog named Katie and a large fenced-in yard.
We set up a meet and greet with Merry and Katie. Yikes! It did not go well at all. Merry nearly ran Katie into the ground. That was a disappointment. We took a chance that Pepper might do well with Katie. Well, Katie thought Pepper was wonderful as they sniffed and played. The humans liked Pepper, too.
We did two home visits that afternoon, and since they were in Escondido, we took Pepper with us and didn’t bring him back. Pepper lives with two older cats and he already snoozes on the couch with one of them. During the day he goes to Grandma’s for day care and to play with Katie. He will rarely be alone and may even forget how to bark! Pepper hit the jackpot!
Thanks to the staff who nearly had to resort to ear plugs, and the walkers who loved walking Pepper.
Ken is a two year old male Siamese cat that was found in an alley way by a fellow PAWS volunteer while she was working at a barber shop on Orange Ave. Knowing that a barber shop alley way is no place for a cat, she brought this handsome boy to the ACF.
Unknown to how Ken ended up homeless, this doesn’t stop this handsome cat from enjoying attention from all of the volunteers.
For being two, Ken is still very youthful and loves to play. He will make a game out of any little thing and his playful personality, along with his beautiful blue eyes, will make you fall in love with him the more time spend with him.
One trait that Ken does not have to the typical Siamese breed is that he is very quiet and not vocal at all. But with most Siamese traits, we believe he will need a lot of human attention, toys and stimulation to help keep him busy and out of trouble.
Ken is a sweet, handsome cat looking for a forever home. Is Ken the feline companion you have been searching for?
You can visit Ken at the Coronado Animal Care Facility (ACF), located at 1395 First Street in Coronado, with hours of operations between 9:00 am to 4:00pm, except holidays. And if you would like to adopt Ken, you can contact the Cat Adoption Team.
If you would like to see some of the Friendliest Paws in all of San Diego County, you can visit our websites- pawsofcoronado.org and petfinder.com. All of our animals are spayed/neutered, microchipped and current on their immunizations prior to their adoption.
