Story
Introducing Hei Hei, a charming 6-year-old male Maltese mix, who found himself at the Inland Valley Humane Society S.P.C.A. as a stray. Hei Hei is seeking an adopter who is patient and understanding, willing to take things slow and demonstrate to him that humans can be trusted. Due to his sensitive nature, Hei Hei would thrive in a home without children. Despite his initial reservations, Hei Hei adores rolling around on people's laps and engaging in playful games of fetch once he feels secure. He is neutered, vaccinated, and microchipped, ready to embark on a new journey with a loving family. If you're ready to open your heart and home to Hei Hei, we encourage you to submit an online application or visit the shelter to meet him in person. Your compassion and patience could make all the difference in Hei Hei's life. Adoptions operate on a first-come, first-serve basis, so complete an application online at pricelesspetrescue.org to make this sweet dog a cherished member of your family today!

Story
Please fill out an adoption application to meet Tino and a volunteer will be in touch! Tino is a very special disabled dog who is looking for a special person to give him a forever home and give him the care he needs. He has a spinal injury that has caused his back legs to be paralyzed but he gets around by scooting or running around in his wheelchair. He is a quiet boy and is learning to trust people and be loved. He likes to be cradled like a baby or relax across your chest. He is used to being with other dogs and a cat. He has started acupuncture and has showed some feeling when you squeeze his paws. This dog deserves a forever home because he has been through so much but is such a loving dog. Check Tino out!
