My name is YoYo! It's a funny name they gave me because I have one ear up, and one ear down! Get it? Like a yo-yo that goes up and down!  

YoYo is not a newcomer to Divine Intervention. He has been with DI since being rescued in 2013. He was found running around and begging for food. Once he was safe and sound, he adjusted quickly to other dogs and cats.He has been here several years and I love him as my own. 

Unfortunately, I'm having to downsize and that means placing some rescues that I thought would stay with me forever. YoYo is a funny boy and my favorite so I will be extra selective to ensure he gets the best home possible.

Just looking at him sometimes makes me laugh. He's a mamma's boy and wants to snuggle every chance he gets, and he brings me toys.  He's very dog friendly and has been around cats too.  HE EATS ACORNS however which lodge in his digestive tract. Two surgeries later, he CANNOT be trusted in a yard with acorns.  He needs a yard without acorn trees dropping acorns into it.  He would also do well with a dog door, allowing him the freedom to go in and out as needed when nature calls. 

 Preference will be given to homes with a human who is mostly at home. YoYo would make the most excellent companion for a retired or semi-retired person or couple.
Adoption fee for YoYo is $50 and to meet my criteria for him. He is available for adoption within all or part of the 916 and 530 area codes. If interested please send an email request for an adoption application. This is one special little guy!

About Divine Intervention

About Our Rescue Group...

Divine Intervention is a one person "organization" whose capacity is much more limited than the larger rescue organizations. Therefore I am not able to assist with personal requests for placement assistance. Please refer to the larger organizations for this. My abilites to serve are based on my belief in what the following story illustrates.

A young girl is on the beach picking up starfish that have washed up onto the shore and is throwing them back into the safety of the ocean. A man sees this and asks, "Miss, why do you waste your time doing something which is so futile? Starfish continually wash up onto miles of shoreline. Certainly you don't believe that what you do makes much of a difference?" Without skipping a beat, the girl picked up another starfish and as she threw it back into the ocean to preserve it's life she said, "Sure made a difference to that one!"

We can all make a difference, even if it is only to help one! I do what I can do to help those who enter my path, which have been many over the years. I don't seek them out, rather they find me. They are my starfish, you are their ocean!


Come Meet Our Pets...

All pet viewings are by appointment. I prefer to show off the pet in your home and take care of the home check at the same time.

Our Adoption Process...

I don't believe in "Free to Good Home" ads and anyone who utilizes this site agrees to a small adoption fee. which is used to help offset the costs of preparing a pet for adoption (such as spay/neuter, vaccinating, etc.) and to discourage certain individuals who seek to acquire "free to good home" animals for inhumane purposes. To further ensure that the pet is going into a home that is safe and appropriate for the specific pet, prior to an adoption I require a filled out adoption agreement prior to a telephone interview and a home check. These things increase the potential for a successful placement and a happy ending for both pet and adopter which is my number one goal.
