Foster Care! Hello, I’m the adorable and cuddly Mocca! I’m an 8-year-old, spayed female Chihuahua.
I'm a spunky and sweet-natured girl, who loves nothing more than a belly rub from my people. I also LOVE to go on walks and smell all the smells! I currently live with a big yellow dog and we have become good friends. I'm not so sure about my cat sister, though. I'm a pretty mellow girl in the home, as I love to follow my people around and sleep in whatever room they are in. Although, I have been known to run up and down the hallway playing chase with my foster mom and I've been told I can be talkative when I have something to say. I'm house trained and have been doing well staying at home during the day.
Since I'm in foster care and not at the adoption center, you can make arrangements to meet me by contacting Sam at firstname.lastname@example.org or by calling 650-340-7022 ext. 418.
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 ext. 823 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.
