Bringing Families Together since 1874

Looking for your new family member?

Let’s help you meet them!


Achilles here! I’m a classically handsome Shepherd guy lookin’ for love. Do you love long games of fetch? Do you need a little silliness to brighten up your life? How about big gorgeous pup to snuggle with at the end of a fun-filled day? I can be your guy! I got my name when I came into the shelter with a broken leg, but after surgery and lots of TLC in a foster home, I’m as good as new! While I was healing from my injury, I didn’t get to interact with other dogs much and I have some big feelings about it. So, I’m looking for a home where I can be the one and only critter! Although I can be a boisterous guy, I made friends with my foster’s neighbor and her kiddos, so my friends at the shelter think I could make a great family dog for an experienced family. Do I sound like the perfect addition to your home? Come down and meet me in Oakland!

Adopt me!


Oh hello! Mongo here, just interviewing for my new best friend. Oh, you’re working on the computer? Let me press the keys. Reading the paper? I’ll hold the pages down for you. Watching TV? I’ll just plop in your lap so you can pet me. I love an orderly household, don’t you? I’ll help you with all your chores, and I’ll help you relax when we’re done. You’ll wonder how you ever managed without me. Come meet me in Dublin!

Adopt me!
