Make me your Senior Sweetheart! My adoption fees are waived until the end of February!
Foster Care: Shyly here, nice to meet you! I am a 7-year-old, 7 lb., spayed female Chihuahua with a short, brown coat. I am an adorable little girl who just loves to sit on her favorite person's lap and get lots of pets and snuggles. In fact if you kneel down around me, I might decide you're making a lap for me and climb on your legs! When I'm not snuggling with you, I like to explore and play with my doggy friends. If you're looking for a sweet, quiet, and affectionate lady to keep you company, look no further! I get along well with other dogs, but if you have any children or resident pets be sure to speak with an adoption counselor to make sure we'd be a good match. Since I’m in foster care and not at the shelter, you can make arrangements to meet me by contacting Cesar at email@example.com or 650-340-7022 x359. Ask for Shyly, ID# A556840.
Unless otherwise indicated, adoptable animals are located at our Lantos Center for Compassion at 1450 Rollins Road, Burlingame, CA 94010. Our hours are weekdays from 11am-7pm and weekends from 11am-6pm (closed major holidays). Interested adopters must arrive at least 1 hour before close.
We do our best to update our listings regularly, but we can’t guarantee every animal you see is still available. It’s also typical for us to have animals who haven’t had their photos taken yet, so you are welcome to visit our adoption center and have a look around!
To check on an animal's adoption status, please call 650/340-7022 during normal business hours to speak with an adoption counselor or 650/340-7022 x823 anytime to hear a recording of our available animals (updated each morning). Emails will be returned as soon as possible, but please allow up to 48 hours during busy adoption periods like weekends.
