Thank you for viewing an animal from Companion Animal Foundation today!

Jah and Hendrix are sibling Husky/Pit mix breed dogs seeking a new home together. Jah is the brindle dog in the photo and his sister Hendrix is the black dog. They were born on born March 10, 2010, who just turned 3 years old.

They are not very social at the moment with other dogs due to mainly staying on the property and staying with us during travel. I use muzzles on the beach to protect them and leashes. They are not good with cats due to never being around them. They are protective of there owners once they are aware you are there parents; therefore they will bark at people that approach you unless you instruct otherwise. They are great with kids, they have been raised around, with, and for a baby girl. They were her protection love and family; we are a single mom and daughter, now struggling with domestic violence and intensely sad to say goodbye to family. I intend to write children's stories about my Princess and her faithful warrior angels Jah andHendrix. They get very hyper which can cause them to be rough on smaller children but once settled or disciplined correctly/regularly that will stop within minutes. Hendrix the black girl is extremely happy and LOVING, hyper, and tends to want to be at eye level with you when being pet; bending down to pet her prevents her from jumping on you. Jah the brindle brother is OVERLY loving, and wants to be the man in the house for his parents. THEY REQUIRE ATTENTION OFTEN FOR THEIR SPIRIT. They are both altered and I am REQUESTING they go to the same home (unless you have a special reason and want for one only). They are potty trained however with the domestic violence incident we had to relocate without them ASAP. They have had dog sitters meeting with them daily (I visit with them 3-4 times a week) and they have unfortunately had to have potty pads in the home just in case.


Remember to check back weekly as we do get in new animals. If there is a dog/cat you are looking for, but haven't seen one that quite fits - please feel free to fill out an application, list what you are looking for and we will call you as soon as an animal to that description comes in. >^..^<

About Companion Animal Foundation

About Our Rescue Group...

We are a small animal organization that adopts out animals (mostly dogs and cats) to loving permanent homes. We are more than a rescue shelter though, we are an Animal Program Center that provides spay/neuter assistance vouchers to low income individuals. We also have a feral cat program which includes lending out humane traps to community members for T-N-R (Trap Neuter Return) and offering low-cost spay/neuter and vaccinations. We also run various programs for youth throughout the year that focus on the importance of good pet care. We have our annual Senior Day of Caring where we provide discounted veterinary services and have a low-cost micro chip clinic. On Sundays we offer dog obedience classes that teach pawsitive reinforcement! These classes are offered on a sliding scale so that low income individuals can also partake. As part of our fundraising, we run 2 thrift stores, one in Sunny Brae and one in Blue Lake. Shop and feel good about yourself, you are recycling and helping the animals! Our Sunny Brae store is our main program center and is the location of our animal adoption room.

We also provide 2-sided metal pet tags for $4 each. $2 for those who adopted from a shelter or rescue organization in the last 90 days and show proof of adoption.

Come Meet Our Pets...

We mainly have cats and kittens in our adoption room. Our dogs live at their foster homes at night and come to the store during open hours. Please call us before you come by to make sure that the animal you are interested in is currently at the store (certain situations may prevent an adoptable dog from coming to our store location on some days).

Our Adoption Process...

Our adoption process consists of a two-sided, single sheet, application.

To ensure our animals are going to permanent loving homes, we do call Veterinarian and personal references and speak with land owners (if renting) or check with the county assessor's office for home ownership. This may take a day or more depending on availability of references and the land owner. Once an application is approved, we set up an adoption appointment.

There may be other requirements depending on individual circumstances.

Our adoption fee for cats/kittens is $100 which includes spay/neuter, vaccines, worming, parasite check, FeLV/FIV Test, and any other care that the individual kitty needs. A micro chip at the time of adoption is only an extra $25.

Dogs/puppies are $150 and includes the same (micro chip also included).
(We also provide low cost obedience classes for dogs!)

Must be at least 18 years of age.
Have (or plan to have) a local Veterinarian.
Own your home or have approval of a land owner.
Spend time with the animal prior to adoption to ensure that he/she will be your life-long furry family member. If you have children we do like to view them with our kitties.
We strive to provide a loving humane forever home for all our animals.
