Facts about Rollie

  • ID#: 11282322
August 2017 update: Rollie is currently receiving further treatment and evaluation for some complications she's had since her pelvis break (decreased space for her colon). We're not able to place her in a home just yet, but we'll be sure to keep her status updated. Due to Rollie's extensive medical bills, if you'd like to help this incredibly sweet girl, please consider donating directly to our Phinny Fund for Emergency Medical and Special Needs Animals. Every dollar helps tremendously to ensure that we can continue to help Rollie while still being able to rescue other dogs in need, too. Thank you! Rollie is the cutest, wiggliest, happiest little 8lb. Chihuahua there is, and to say that her disposition is anything short of a miracle given her tough upbringing is an understatement! Rollie came to a public shelter after being brought in from a hoarding case. She clearly was loved by her person, but it's difficult for any animal to receive proper care when they're only one of dozens. She was fearful and shut down at the shelter, hiding in the back of the dog run and too afraid to make eye contact. But once she found herself in a great foster home, the wiggles came out full force! She is definitely one thing for sure: an absolute lovebucket! Not long after arriving at her foster home, her foster mom arrived home from work to find that little Rollie had managed to escape her dog run outdoors, where she was allowed to relax with her two resident dogs and bask in the sunshine for the day. Two days later, Rollie was brought to an emergency clinic by a concerned citizen after being found wandering, and the poor baby had been hit by a car (seriously, talk about a tough go of things!). But did that slow down her shiny disposition and wagging tail? Nope! Not one bit. Rollie has had to have cage rest since being found in order to best help her pelvis heal (surgery was explored but not recommended by surgeons), but as nothing has been easy in this girl's life, neither was healing - her pelvis did not realign and no bone growth was evident in post-healing xrays. Amazingly though, her muscles and tendons have kept everything in place and this girl walks, plays and hops around as though nothing happened whatsoever. She is seriously a miracle girl! Rollie is estimated to be 3 years of age and is current on her vaccines and microchipped. She will be spayed one any potential healing time is finished. She's absolutely fantastic with other dogs and loves people. She'll need an adult household where someone understands that long runs on the beach probably aren't in this girl's future, but walks and snuggling most certainly are! If you have a soft spot for helping dogs who've been dealt a rough hand in life (hoarding, hit by a car and an all-black coat (the most commonly euthanized in shelters and least commonly adopted)), then we've got your girl for you! The hard times put the shine into the diamond, and a diamond this girl is. Location: Foster Home

About Contra Costa Humane Society

About Our Rescue Group...

Contra Costa Humane Society is a private, non-profit 501(c)(3) organization that operates such programs as Adoptions, Kitty Corner, Spay/Neuter Assistance, and AniMeals. We are not affiliated with any other rescue organization, humane society or spca.

Our mission is to empower our community to improve the quality of life for animals and decrease euthanasia rates. Through our programs and services, we connect with individuals and private and public organizations to adopt pets, reduce the number of unwanted animals, and educate the public to foster compassion, responsibility and respect towards animals.

Come Meet Our Pets...

Our business office and Kitty Corner are located at 171 Mayhew Way, Suite 101 in Pleasant Hill, CA 94523.

Kitty Corner houses adult, senior, and special-needs cats (sometimes teenage kittens). Kitty Corner is open for adoptions on Saturday, Sunday & Monday from 12-3pm or during the week (preferably by appointment to make sure someone's available to show you the cats).

All of our dogs, puppies and kittens are located off-site in foster homes and can be met by appointment once adoption applications have been received and approved.

Our Adoption Process...

CCHS has animals available for adoption through a number of different avenues. Many of our kittens and all dogs are cared for in loving foster homes until they are adopted. Teenage, adult, senior and special-needs cats reside at Kitty Corner, an on-site, private cat shelter where cats are allowed to free-roam at all times, lounge in sunny windows and on comfy cat towers, and play to their heart's galore. Similarly, we also have animals available for adoption through our Re-Homing Assistance Program, where we help to advertise animals that caregivers are no longer able to keep.

If you are interested in meeting any of the animals listed on our website, please complete an adoption application unless otherwise noted!

Adoption fees are:
Kittens under 6mo: $130 ($200 for two)
Cats over 6mo: $90 ($150 for two)
Puppies under 6mo: $225
