Rocky was rescued as a kitten behind the now demolished Rock Garden Cafe in Palm Springs. He loves to run in front of our legs as we leave the house throwing himself in front of us over and over for belly rubs. He does this from the moment I grab the keys until we are out the door.
Andy met Tina Louise in January 2021. It was love at first sight by both. Andy was inviting her home as Tina was saying take me home. She now greets all guests on arrival and they fall in love her, as it should be!
When my 98 year old father moved in with us, Maddie knew her job right away. Never left his side until he passed away 8 months later. He said she is what kept him going. I’m forever grateful to Maddie as she was the perfect friend. She rescued me.
Mei was so scared at the shelter they thought she might be feral, but now she loves to snuggle more than anything else.
Belle has learned to love boating at age 12. She hates water and swimming but loves the boat!
El Chapo Taco
El Chapo is the sweetest guy! At 90lbs, he acts like a tiny chi and will literally try to sit on your lap! He was dumped in Oakland Hills and rescued by lovely folks! I fostered him and now he lives with 2 dogs, 2 bunnies, hamster and a bird! He loves them all!!
Mr. Bubbles is a neighborhood celebrity and has multiple houses he visits throughout the day, including the house of his best friend and indoor cat, Nova. He is keeps our yards free of rats, but at home is a snuggly boy.
Petal loves balls so much that she brings one to bed with her so she can sleep with it…sometimes even two. She loves to hike, has amazing recall, and gets along with our cat Mr. Bubbles.
Sinatra is chairman of the couch. He never met a treat or another dog he didn’t like. He’s scared of the blender and the measuring tape, but loud noises and fireworks don’t mean a thing.
Annie is a love bug – never met a dog or person she didn’t like. We are so grateful to have her in our family.
