Posted Breed: Chihuahua / Mixed (short coat). Umbrella of Hope "Be Our Pet" Pinto is a 8 Year old, 6lb, Chihuahua, SPAYED Female For ADOPTION! Meet Miss Pinto Vroom! As of 10/24/15 Pinto is considered to be a hospice dog due to a pituitary tumor. She will be completing a bucket list and can be followed on Facebook with the hashtag #pintosbucketlist Pinto has been with us since July 2015 when she came to us with a healing abscess on her head that our wonderful friends at CONTRA COSTA ANIMAL SERVICES took care of for us by placing a drain. It was very slow to heal and as we were monitoring some unusual findings on her bloodwork over the next few months, we incidentally found out that she had developed Cushing's Disease (which is treatable/manageable). She was put on a diet to help her lose some weight because she was having some issues with her back legs. She also has had a snotty nose that would get better and then get worse after many rounds of antibiotics and a culture. Her right eye has also been bulged out and that did not get better after her abscess resolved. Putting all of these pieces together, our vet x-rayed her head and is pretty confident that she has a brain tumor on her pituitary gland that is growing pretty fast. We have entered her into our hospice program. She is now no longer on a diet and can eat whatever she likes. We will be monitoring her quality of life and making sure that every day counts and when she is no longer having good days, we will let her go. Right now she is happy, active and HUNGRY. She has now decided to end her life in the best way possible... By starting and COMPLETING a Bucket List. If you are local (SF Bay Area of CA) and want to take her on a date, please email us at beourpet@gmail.com. If you are not local, please consider taking a hospice dog from your local shelter or rescue and giving them an amazing sunset. Donations towards Pinto's care or her legacy program, can be mailed to Umbrella of Hope, c/o Well Pet Vet Clinic, 4040 Railroad Ave, Pittsburg, CA 94565 OR our paypal address is beourpet@gmail.com. We also have an Amazon Wish List. Our tax ID number is 45-4103375 and all donations are tax-deductible. (Pinto is from Contra Costa Animal Services) Pinto is a 8 Year old, 6lb, Chihuahua, SPAYED Female For ADOPTION! She is also microchipped, vaccinated and free of parasites! Pinto was dropped off in the night drop off box at Contra Costa Animal services, when the shelter workers found her she was scared and hurt. She had an ENORMOUS abscess on the right side of her forehead. They drained it (you could even see her skull underneath it, poor baby!) and set about fixing her, all through out this she behaved like a model citizen regardless of how hurt she was! Thanks to the amazing work by Contra Costa Animal services she is healing well. She currently has stents holding her sore bits open, she looks like she's going to make a fantastic recovery very soon and is going to be back to her vivacious self soon. (UPDATE; We are happy to annouce she's made an amazing recovery and is slowly growing back some fuzz around her old injury) She's got an amazing personality, she has the cutest bossy little bark if she wants attention but quickly stops if you give her the eye! She seems very independent but also a lover of cuddles! She loves lounging in the garden on the grass and if you're lucky she'll show you Her famous grass wiggle! She even gives kisses if you tell her she's pretty. She also knows how to sit and is great with other dogs! If you think Pinto is better off in your arms, email us at beourpet@gmail.com or fill in an application online! Welcome to UOH Pinto!

If you’re looking to adopt a dog and don’t know where to start, puppyfinder.com is an excellent source for information about adopting a dog and will connect you with hundreds of shelters across the US that have adoptable puppies and older dogs waiting for forever homes.
  1. Do your research – find out what types of dogs would be a good fit for your lifestyle and the activity level of your family. Also keep in mind the grooming needs of certain breeds that might require frequent maintenance.
  2. Decide what you can handle – before you get sucked in by all the adorable puppy eyes you’re about to see, think long and hard about the appropriate age dog for your family or if you are capable of caring for a special needs dog. Puppies are a lot of work, if you don’t have time for potty training and obedience classes you’ll want to consider an older dog. There are plenty of middle aged, vibrant dogs up for adoption as well as many senior dogs that would be a great fit for a family looking for a more subdued dog with lots of love to give.
  3. Learn about the shelters and their adoption policies – It might be easier to start looking at shelters within a certain radius of home but don’t be afraid to venture out to other states as well. Many states have larger populations of adoptable dogs and their shelters are willing to transport pets to suitable adopting families. Some shelters might have requirements for a home visit, a fenced yard or require you to visit the pet multiple times before you commit to adopting. Understand that the shelters are doing their best to place the pets in suitable homes and these requirements are in the best interest of both you and the pet.
  4. Start looking… Once you know what you’re looking for and what to expect you can start your search through thousands of adoptable dogs. PuppyFinder allows you to search by age, breed, location and gender.
  5. Meet in person. Whenever possible it is best to meet the animal in person before agreeing to bring them into your life. Even though photos and descriptions can tell you a bit about a dog, you can’t get a true feeling for the animal until you are able to interact with them and make sure they are a good fit for your entire family, including other pets.

      Posted Breed: Cocker Spaniel / Mixed (medium coat). Umbrella of Hope "Be Our Pet" 10 yr old, 17 lb Cocker Spaniel Mix SPAYED FEMALE for ADOPTION Meet Miss Grandma Mae Kibble Grandma Mae is named after Grandma Mae's Country Naturals Dog Food. Grandma Mae is a 10 yr old, 18 lb Cocker Spaniel Mix SPAYED FEMALE. She was brought into our veterinary clinic as a stray found on a busy street near the clinic. Her microchip was registered to people with Colorado numbers and they did not answer or return calls from the vet team. We asked Fido Alert - East Contra Costa County to help us find anyone who knew what had happened to her but no one came forward. She was stinky, covered in fleas, missing over 1/2 of her hair, had the LONGEST toenails we had ever seen (pics in comments) and was scratching herself so much she was bleeding. She has dry-eye so bad that her eyeballs had scabs. She was starving and gulped down 4 bowls of food in less than 24 hours. Due to local stray laws, she was required to go to the shelter for a stray hold and CONTRA COSTA ANIMAL SERVICES started her medical treatment while they tried to track down an owner. It took over 10 days for the owner to respond and they said they had given her away previously and just wanted her euthanized so we were more than happy to go get her and bring her into our program. She is being fostered by a wonderful RVT who had previously fostered (and adopted) another one of our skin issue dogs -- Mighty Moe. She is on over a dozen different medications to try to ease her itching, soothe her skin and start the healing process. We hope she will be feeling better really soon so that we can get some lumps removed and her teeth cleaned. She apparently loves "soft beds and cuddles" and has a huge appetite but takes food very gently. She already knows her name, follows her foster mom around and whines and jumps up to be petted. She is a beautiful soul and she deserves so much better than what she was given and we want to make sure she knows she is a princess. We are an ALL VOLUNTEER team and we need donations to be able to continue to provide this level of care to senior, special needs, medically needy, hospice, shy and plain animals who are at risk of euthanasia in shelters. Help us save more dogs like Grandma Mae. To make a tax-deductible donation please do so at www.paypal.me/UOH To purchase a tshirt or sweatshirt to spread the word about our organization AND to help support our medical fund, please go here (last day): https://www.booster.com/umbrellaofhopeanimalrescue Grandma Mae will not be available for adoption for 6-8 weeks.

      Location: Pittsburg, CA
      Posted Breed: Chihuahua / Jack Russell Terrier (Parson Russell Terrier) / Mixed (short coat). Umbrella of Hope "Be Our Pet" 3 Male, 3 Female Chihuahua/Jack Russell/Min Pin (?) Mix Puppies accepting applications! ACCEPTING APPLICATIONS NOW -- puppies to go home mid-May. PLEASE READ THOROUGHLY *Adoption information for Kangaroo's puppies!* Round 1 ADOPTION REQUIREMENTS for KANGAROOS’S PUPPIES -- Please read carefully. We will NOT be accepting applications for specific puppies. On your application, please write “Kangaroos Puppy” for the NAME and NOT a specific name of a puppy. Since no one has met these puppies and only very vague descriptions of the puppies have been posted, a good home will have no idea which of the six puppies will best fit their household. If you submit an application with a name of a specific puppy, your application will be discarded and not considered (as looks should be the LAST thing considered when choosing which one is appropriate for your home). We will choose up to 6 applications from those submitted and those people and their families will have a meet and greet with all six puppies on May 6th. AFTER this meet and greet, you will be able to email us a list of your top 2-3 choices in order (by puppy name or you can just choose a gender) and we will match puppies with the best homes based on that preference AFTER you have met the puppies. Puppies will be ready to go to their new homes in mid-May. We will give specific dates after the meet and greet and match up. They will be up to date on all vaccinations, spayed/neutered, microchipped and free of parasites. The adoption fee is $250 and can be paid in cash, by check or by credit card at the puppy pick up. We will absolutely NOT, for ANY reason, place puppies in homes together due to “Littermate Syndrome” (please google it). All six puppies will be going to individual homes with NO exceptions. All other pets in your home must be at least 1 year of age, current on vaccinations (or titers) and have been with your home for at least six months. They will be required to come to the puppy pick up but NOT the meet and greet on May 6th. We will prioritize placement into homes who have other well-trained, social dogs. ALL humans who will live in the household with the dog or visit at least weekly will be required to come to the meet and greet on May 6th. All puppies are required to complete a basic obedience class and proof is required within 3 months of adoption. Adopters may choose to train the puppies themselves (instead of a formal class) and submit a video of the puppy doing 5 separate commands by the 3 month post-adoption date. Round 2 will open on May 8th, 2017 IF we do not receive six applications for the puppies during Round 1 OR if suitable homes are not found during the first round OR if people chosen for Round 1 cannot come to the May 6th meet and greet. Puppies were born in a foster home on Feb 3rd, 2017 when Kangaroos (the mom) was on a stray hold. They have been handled since birth by MULTIPLE people. They are social and friendly and have been socialized with many other dogs. They have visited a nursing home and spent time around wheelchairs, walkers and canes. They have been on many different surfaces, met many new people and have experienced many new things. They are being evaluated by a certified dog trainer who is guiding their foster family in socializing them to new people and things. The foster family has followed the "Puppy Rule of 12" linked below to assure that they are well exposed to their environment. https://www.longmonthumane.org/sites/default/files/media/attachments/Puppy_handoutfinal.pdf They were nursed by mom as well as were given Esbilac formula until they were 5 weeks old and then they have eaten a diet of nurtrient-rich Wellness Puppy, Wellness CORE Puppy and Royal Canin Baby Dog wet and dry food since then. They have had age appropriate vaccines and regular dewormings. They will be spayed/neutered and microchipped prior to going home mid-May. They are working on housetraining and are doing very well with a combination of puppy pads and going outside but you have to understand that you are adopting a BABY and much like you would not expect your infant to be housetrained upon coming home from the hospital, you need to be prepared for housebreaking your new puppy for several months. GENERAL INFO: Housebroken?: No, they are puppies. They are working on it, but you will have to train them Crate Trained?: Yes, as well as a puppy can be Leash Trained?: Working on it but not old enough for walks Rides Well in Car?: Yes in a crate Non-Shedding?: No Good with cats?: Yes Good with dogs?: Yes Qualifies for Seniors for Seniors?: N0 Umbrella of Hope does not have any strict rules on ages of children because all children are different, but our best approximation is that this animal would do best with children over the age of any age Umbrella of Hope is a non-profit animal rescue based out of Pittsburg, CA that rescues animals off death row from local shelters.

      Posted Breed: Miniature Pinscher (short coat). Umbrella of Hope "Be Our Pet" 10-12 yr old, 18 lb Miniature Pinscher SPAYED FEMALE for ADOPTION Meet Miss Kiko Goat! Kiko has a sad story... whomever owned her or found her (we don't know which one) opened up the door of a local vet clinic, threw her inside and left. She was really lucky there were not any aggressive dogs in the lobby (security camera photo is the 4th one shown). Thanks to Fido Alert - East Contra Costa County followers, there is a $100 reward for information leading to the identity of the person who dumped her. Please contact us at beourpet@gmail.com if you recognize the man in this photo (taken in Pittsburg, CA 94565). Please spare us the "at least" comments. It's really easy to say "at least he didn't do _______" when you are not the one responsible for finding her a home. We frankly don't want to hear them. Just because someone could have been a bigger jerk does not excuse the fact that they were a jerk and did the wrong thing -- PERIOD. Because we do not know if Kiko was dumped by her owner or by someone who found her she was, by law, considered to be a stray. We took her to CONTRA COSTA ANIMAL SERVICES to sit a stray hold per local legal requirements. Luckily one of the clients of the vet clinic offered to foster her for us because we did not have an available foster home and cannot typically take dogs who are dumped on us/vet clinics, so we were able to bail her out once her stray hold was over as she went unclaimed. Kiko is a purebred Miniature Pinscher and is around 10-12 years old. She had previously been spayed (and has previously cropped ears and tail) and we made sure she was microchipped, vaccinated and had a senior lab panel and dental work. Kiko is mostly blind (can see shadows) and mostly deaf but is otherwise in good health. She is quiet and very very sweet. She likes warm beds, soft blankets and yummy food. Kiko gets along with other dogs and seems to be fine with cats. She is great with all people. She seems both housebroken and crate-trained. She is excellent in the car. She is a little hesitant on leash and walks very slowly but she is gaining confidence. We have ordered her a Muffin's Halo For Blind Dogs (and thanks to Amazon.com it will be here tomorrow) to help her navigate her foster home and her forever home when we find it. Kiko is looking for someone who will love her for the rest of her days. Although she would be fine in any home who would care for her, she would be an especially good match for a lonely senior who just needs a friend to hang out with and snuggle. She qualifies for our Seniors for Seniors adoption program where animals aged 5+ can be adopted to people 55+ for $5. Regular adoption criteria apply and application required. If you cannot adopt, but have been moved by her story you can make a tax-deductible donation towards her medical care ($500) at www.paypal.me/UOH or you can pass her story along so that her new person can find her. #startastoryadopt #shelterpetlove #minpinrescue #miniaturepinscher #seniordogsrock #seniordogsrule GENERAL INFO: Housebroken?: Yes, we think so.

      Posted Breed: Bichon Frise / Poodle (unknown type) / Mixed (medium coat). Umbrella of Hope "Be Our Pet" 14 yr old, 17 lb Bichon and Poodle Mix SPAYED FEMALE Hospice Program DROPOUT Who remembers the "20 yr old" dog we took from San Jose Animal Care Center? Aunt Jeni was surrendered by her owner for euthanasia because she was (supposedly) 20 years old and had an abdomen "full of tumors". We welcomed her into our hospice program after a plea from the volunteers at San Jose Animal Advocates and Tails of a Shelter Vet Wellllllll.. there has been a happy development. When our veterinary team was checking her over to see what we needed to do to make her comfortable, they were perplexed. Neither of our veterinarians thought she was 20 years old and both thought she was more like 12-15. They also could find no evidence that she was dying... like NONE. They examined her, palpated her abdomen, took x-rays and ran some bloodwork. Nothing pointed to a dying dog. She also does not act like a dying dog... she trots around after her foster moms, eats like a horse and jumps on and off the couch like she is a youngster. She DOES have a big ulcerated mass on her hip that is likely a skin tag that was chewed. She also has a fatty tumor under one of her front legs. Both are likely benign. She has some "old dog warts" but those are nothing to be concerned about. They can be removed with a pretty simple surgery. **UPDATE*** Jeni had her surgery and has recovered and is doing well. She is a regular adoption candidate! So, they sent us to an internist at Encina Veterinary Hospital (shoutout to Dr Wang -- we Aaaaaannnnndddddd... she agreed. This is not a dying dog. She did an ultrasound, an echocardiogram, some bloodwork and took her blood pressure. Officially not dying (yay). She told us she was cleared to have surgery to remove her bumps and get her teeth all shiny. There are a few things we have to monitor on her but all in all she is healthy as a horse considering her age which we (and our vet team) have decided is 14 (it's all just a guess). So, now Aunt Jeni needs surgery to have her lumps removed and biopsied. She needs her teeth cleaned. And we need your help! **UPDATE*** Surgery done and Jeni is healed :) We need to raise $1000 to get Aunt Jeni the care she needs to become ADOPTABLE. Yes, adoptable. She has been kicked out of our hospice program and booted into our adoption program. She will be ADOPTABLE once she heals from her surgery.

      Chihuahua Dog For Adoption in Pittsburg, CA

      rescue
      Breed: Bullboxer Pit
      Sex: Female Female
      Age: Young
      Location: Pittsburg, CA
      Posted Breed: American Pit Bull Terrier / Boxer / Mixed (short coat). Umbrella of Hope "Be Our Pet" 1 yr old, 55 lb American Pit Bull Terrier Mix SPAYED FEMALE for ADOPTION After a month at board-and-train with our friends at Derty Dog Canine Retreat & Fitness, Prada is doing well in play groups and learning more every day. She is great off-leash but is still showing reactivity (not aggression) ON a leash so she is doing an intensive training course to work through that. We are going to start accepting applications on her now with a target ready-for-adoption date in mid-April. She's 11 months old, 55 lbs, spayed, microchipped and vaccinated. She is an APBT mixed with.... maybe.... Boxer? Your guess is as good as ours ;) She needs to go to a home that will keep her MIND AND BODY active. If a daily walk is your idea of "active" you aren't the right home. If your idea of exercising your dog involves them having free time in a back yard of any size, you aren't the right home (for her or any active dog). When you email us, we expect our interns to need a NAP after reading about your plans for her. She plays well in play groups and is great with other dogs... HOWEVER, she is not a "dog park" dog because of her breed. If anything happens, she will get blamed regardless of whether or not it was her fault. Let's set her up for success and not failure. We will place her as an only pet or with another large male dog (or dogs). This isn't because she doesn't get along with female dogs (she's fine with them) but again... setting her up for success. We have NO idea how she is with cats but suspect she has trouble differentiating them from squirrels so probably not a good idea. If your female dog thinks she's a male dog and you have breed experience, let's chat. At some point in her life, she suffered from an identity crisis and thinks she is a chihuahua. Because she has NO IDEA that she is in fact a large dog, we are going to recommend no small dogs or children under the age of 10 as they might get trampled or squished or knocked over accidentally. Adopters need to prove they can have a bully breed where they live and stable housing. Your insurance (renters or homeowners) must allow bully breeds. Preference will be given to people who plan to get pet insurance for her. Please email beourpet@gmail.com for more information and send a DETAILED email if you are interested. She is located in the SF East Bay Area of CA. Adopters from anywhere welcomed but we won't just ship her off to places unknown. Transport available from here to Idaho (Boise Area) for the perfect home (or anywhere in between).

      Breed: Puggle
      Sex: Female Female
      Age: Senior
      Location: Pittsburg, CA
      Posted Breed: Pug / Beagle / Mixed (short coat). Umbrella of Hope "Be Our Pet" 9 yr old, 27 lb Pug and Beagle Mix SPAYED FEMALE for ADOPTION Meet Miss Boka Kibble! Boka is named after Northpaw Nutrition's Boka Dog Food (http://www.bokapetfood.com/products/) Boka is a 9 yr old, 27 lb Pug and Beagle Mix SPAYED FEMALE. She is also microchipped, vaccinated, free of parasites and has had senior labwork, a dental cleaning, double cherry eye repair and two cysts removed. Boka comes to us from Bishop Ranch Veterinary Center & Urgent Care where she was surrendered for euthanasia. Bishop Ranch asked our rescue network to take her and we said YES! They were kind enough to donate her medical care (around $3000 worth!) and make sure she was ready to go to foster care. This dog is DELIGHTFUL! Boka knows several commands such as "sit" "down" and "speak" and is house-trained, leash-trained and crate-trained. Boka rides well in the car, loves other dogs, seems fine with cats and thinks kids are awesome. She also has a beautiful smile! Boka is a tad bit overweight and is on a diet kibble and exercise program (she should be 20-22 lbs). One of the fun things she likes to do is tricks for her kibble and she will turn on the charm for a "treat" Boka qualifies for our Seniors for Seniors program where people 55+ can adopt dogs 5+ for $5. Regular adoption criteria apply and application required. To inquire about adopting Boka, please send an email to beourpet@gmail.com To make a tax-deductible donation to allow our all-volunteer group to save more dogs like Boka, please do so here at www.paypal.me/UOH Or you can purchase Umbrella of Hope supporter tshirts and sweatshirts here for a few more days: https://www.booster.com/umbrellaofhopeanimalrescue #startastoryadopt #shelterpetlove #puggle GENERAL INFO: Housebroken?: Yes Crate Trained?: Yes Leash Trained?: Yes Rides Well in Car?: Yes Non-Shedding?: No Good with cats?: Yes, we think so Good with dogs?: Yes Qualifies for Seniors for Seniors?: yes Umbrella of Hope does not have any strict rules on ages of children because all children are different, but our best approximation is that this animal would do best with children over the age of 5 Umbrella of Hope is a non-profit animal rescue based out of Pittsburg, CA that rescues animals off death row from local shelters.
