My story

Deuce is a 7-year-old, 12 lb., black/gray Miniature Poodle/Maltese mix. He is bouncy, fun, energetic, and loves to play with toys. He is also affectionate, sweet and well mannered in the house. A home with a yard is preferable because Deuce loves to run around and play fetch (see his video). Deuce is very friendly to everyone he meets and he's nice with kids. Deuce is a great little buddy and will be a fun addition to your family. He is currently enrolled in a training program. He can be anxious about dogs he doesn't know, but has done very well when introduced slowly by walking with them. He would be best as the only dog in the home, but he loves pack walks with his friends. We are looking for an experienced owner who will continue reinforcing what Deuce has learned.

Deuce's $250 adoption fee includes his vet exam, neuter surgery, vaccinations, microchip, bloodwork, fecal/urinalysis exam, and flea treatment. For more information email info@greatpets.org or submit an online Adoption Application at www.greatpets.org

Their adoption process

This helps us place our rescued animals in homes best suited to their needs and the needs of their new families. Most of these animals have been through so much and we want to make their transition as smooth as possible. Please visit our website: www.greatpets.org for our adoptable dogs and cats, how to meet them, our adoption & foster applications, adoption events, and much more. CAT questions/info contact: (949) 716-0538 or hanaskids@gmail.com DOG questions/info contact: (949) 348-8057 or info@greatpets.org

FIV (feline immunodeficiency virus) is a widely misunderstood condition. Many people think that it’s easily spread, makes cats very sick, and that they have a lower life expectancy, so they are not often adopted. This is far from the truth! When a cat tests positive for FIV, it means they either carry the virus or have been vaccinated for it at some point (which causes them to test positive for the disease, which is why this vaccination isn’t recommended, among other reasons). FIV is not spread through casual contact such as shared food/water/litter, mutual grooming, or playing. It is most commonly spread through deep, vicious bite wounds typically inflicted by intact toms fighting on the streets over food, females, or territory. If a cat has been spayed or neutered, they are unlikely to fight in this manner, and if the population is stable (no serious fighting), FIV+ cats can live with non-infected cats. It was previously thought that FIV+ pregnant females could pass the virus to their kittens, but this has since been disproved according to one study.* Kittens with an FIV+ mother may test positive for up to 6 months simply due to the presence of maternal antibodies, which dissipate over time. FIV+ cats can live as long and healthy a life as non-infected cats. This doesn’t mean they will never become ill; they are, after all immunocompromised, so illnesses can be easier to catch and harder to fight off. They have the same needs as any other cat: high-quality nutrition, a clean, stress-free, strictly indoor environment, regular veterinary visits (two times per year), and lots of love. If they should become ill, they are generally treated earlier, longer, and more aggressively than non-immunocompromised cats (meaning they need to see the vet at the very first sign of illness and may be on a stronger medication or on medication for a longer period of time). *Study results can be found on our "Available Cats and Kittens" website page at www.greatpets.org

More about this rescue

We are a no-kill rescue group in Southern California. Our primary focus is rescuing animals from local high-kill shelters. We then either board them or place them in foster homes so we can better assess their personalities before placing them in loving homes. All our animals are examined by our veterinarians, spayed/neutered, vaccinated, microchipped, FELV/FIV tested if they are cats, flea treated and dewormed if needed.
