I am already spayed, housetrained, a special needs pet, in need of an experienced adopter, and up to date with shots.
Sadie has come such a long way since she was rescued, and despite the patchy fur that is a permanent effect of her neglected puppyhood, she's now a fantastic only pet. She used to be afraid of men but now comes and puts her head in her foster dad's lap to snuggle up. She even took a liking to a new man, giving him kisses within just a few minutes of meeting. The stability and routine of foster care have been very good for Sadie, and she watches for her foster mom to come home from work at the end of the day, and when "mom" arrives, she grabs a toy in her mouth and does the wigglebutt dance around the house!
Sadie's desire to snooze at your feet while you work and her tendency to sit by the door to let you know she needs to go out both foretell a future as a mellow, loving pet. She would do best with a work-at-home person, a stay-at-home parent with older kids, or someone retired. Sadie's been learning how to play and swim, and she's coming out of her shell and showing that she's a fun and funny girl!
If you are an experienced dog person whose last dog has died and who is now ready for another, please consider adopting Sadie. She's afraid of other dogs and so would do best as an only pet or with someone who will slowly and carefully train her to be around another dog. She will be forever grateful for a quiet home and stable routine. Sadie is a dream dog. Are you the special, one-in-a-million person who can make Sadie's dreams come true? If you are, she'll return the favor with more love than you can even imagine.

Central California Pets Alive is a grassroots advocacy effort to reform Stockton Animal Services.
Our goals are to advocate for animal services in Stockton and San Joaquin that commits to saving every healthy and treatable animal. The No Kill Equation, implemented comprehensively and with integrity, has enabled over 75 communities to save every healthy and treatable pet brought to animal shelters, including open-admission shelters. The No Kill Equation works in all types of communities. Saving every homeless pet is not a matter of money but of will and leadership.
We are not a 501(c)3 organization, though we work with several rescues. Our advocacy has led us to rescue animals from Stockton Animal Services and strays. We also sometimes feature "courtesy posts"--for information, contact CentralCaliforniaPetsAlive@gmail.com
All pets are in foster homes or boarding and are available to meet by appointment.
The adoption process involves a phone or email screening and home visit. Most pets have no re-homing fee or adopters can choose a donation amount. The sole purpose of listing animals is to find responsible, loving homes. The contract is a very basic document outlining that the new owner will provide all needed care and that if the owner is ever unable to care for the animal, she/he will not be surrendered to a pound, and that I will take him/her back or help re-home that pet.
