Black & Tan Coonhound mix; female, 7 months, 38 lbs. Willow is a beautiful, loving and playful puppy who loves people and most dogs. She loves to run and play in the yard, play chase with her fellow puppy Liesel, explore the bushes looking for lizards, rabbits & squirrels. She runs at full speed for the sheer joy of running.

She is happiest being around people and other dogs and does not like to be alone. Willow is house-trained at our house and used to having free access from the whole house to a nice yard. She takes naps in the afternoon and sleeps in her crate in our room at night. Willow is a puppy so she likes to chew on toys, socks and shoes. She loves attention and we are working on training her not to jump on people when she first greets them.

Willow needs a family who can provide attention, exercise, training and companionship. She has little world experience. Everything is new and she is eager to learn. A home visit will be conducted to help ensure the right home for her and her new adopter. An application for adoption will be requested. A rehoming fee will be charged. Willow has all her shots, a microchip and is spayed and licensed.

If you are interested in adopting or fostering Willow, please contact Charlotte at winslow42@cox.net or 619-383-4956.


Guinea Pig available for adoption

3 year old female. Comes with cage, food dish, waterer, and sleeping igloo.  Easy to hold and pet. Tina had been a great pet for our children, but my son has developed an allergy that makes it difficult to have her in the house. We are hoping for a living family to rehome Tina to. She does not require much time or attention to be happy, and cleaning her cage is a once a week chore.

Please contact Christy Jones at 619-838-5231 or email thejonesranch@gmail.com for more information.

Black Jack is a rescued 2-1/2 mos. old Terrier mix.  He is very sweet, inquisitive and ready for fun and his favorite time is spent cuddling with you.  He has been neutered, wormed and is up-to-date with his Distemper/Parvo shots.  Medical records will be provided.  He is doing good on house training.  He would be great with a family or an individual who is active.   He wants to learn and rides in the car great.  “Black Jack” weighs about 8 lbs and will probably get up to about 20 lbs.  A home visit will be conducted to help ensure the right home for him and his new adopter. An application for adoption will be requested. “Black Jack’s” rehoming fee is $100.

dusty-rose-black-white-kitty-951-544-8092Super Sweet Foster Kitty “Dusty Rose”

I am fostering a beautiful tuxedo cat in need of a home. I originally found Dusty Rose in my backyard, and ended up fostering her after her microchip contacts did not return calls. She is estimated to be around 4-5 years old and in good health. She needs to be the only animal as she seems insecure around other animals.Contact me if interested in pictures of her or to check her out.

Roc is neutered and up to date with his Distemper/Parvo and Rabies shots. He weighs about 80 lbs. Medical records will be provided.

5-14-15 Gaia_ElizABETH aLLEN“Gaia”

Gaia is a beautiful 1.5yr old female, spayed pittie who has had a terrible start in life and was rescued from San Bernadino City Shelter about 3 months ago right after giving birth to pups that were never found. She came to me a complete mess, very sick and in deep grief at losing her babies. She has been nursed back to health and is now a vibrant, energetic pup.  She is great around cats and to date, dogs are the challenge, so a home with no other dogs, except maybe small, playful ones is the best place for her. I have two other big dogs that would LOVE to play with her, but she has experienced too much trauma for that to happen – today. We have an animal behaviorist on the team and she is making progress, so we are hopeful.  She would thrive in a home with a pack leader who is willing to be consistent, keep her safe, correct her and give her boundaries. She is pure love.

Nova_Grey Pit 4-2-15

“Nova” – Pretty Pittie Seeking Soul Mate in Alpine

Nova is a 2yr old Blue Nose Pittie. She is spayed & Licensed in San Diego. She is incredibly smart, loving, & dedicated and is a total “People Dog” with a Great Attitude!

Nova’s Requirements: Nova needs an experienced, responsible individual, couple, or family to make a lifelong commitment. She has dominant Female Energy with Limited Cat/Small Pet Experience, so I believe that she would thrive in a home w/ NO other pets. Secure Yard/Kennel with lots of time to play, finish her training, & build a bond with her loyal heart. Anyone interested must be open to a “home check” to ensure Nova will be safe, happy, & there to stay FOREVER

Please call Kristen at (619) 885-8232 to learn more about this very special dog!!


rescue X LogoAbout Us: Our rescue is almost 100% foster based. This means that our animals reside in the private homes of the people who volunteer for us. Because of this we do not have one general location to see all of our animals.

Fostering helps us to understand what each animal is going to be like once they get to their forever home. From their likes & dislikes to behaviors to medical needs, because we are foster based we have a good idea of the personality and needs of the animal you are interested in adopting. All animals come spayed/neutered, micro-chipped, wormed, up to date on vaccines, flea treated & with a free vet exam at Judy Veterinary Clinic.  My website is www.RescueX.org & the Facebook is facebook.com/rescuex.org



We have so many kittens that are ready to go…here’s just a few…All of them are litter trained, active and very healthy.  Adoption is easy and includes spay/neuter, microchip, wormed, flea treated, current vaccines and a certificate for a free vet exam – *Discounts for double adoptions* – We deliver the kitty to you!





Barn & Feral Cats

(No pictures)  We currently have many barn or feral cats & kittens available. They come fixed, current on vaccines, wormed, flea treated, ear-tipped or microchipped (dependant on if they’re truly feral or a barn cat). Feral cats will happily trade their organic pest control services for a safe place to call home. Barn cats, sometimes referred to as “friendly ferals”, are able to be handled, but for a variety of reasons must live mostly outdoors. We ask for a minimum donation of $40 per feral to cover our costs & to adopt in pairs – we can work out payment plans and discounts for people willing to adopt more than two, especially when keeping siblings together!   *The key to feral success is keeping the cats caged at their new home for at least 30-45 days. During this time wet & dry food, clean water and a litterbox must be provided. We have cages & boxes we can loan for this process. After this imprinting process, we ask feral colony keepers to provide access to clean water, supplemental kibble & any needed health care for the lifetime of the cats.*



Say hello to Ariana!! This super friendly pup is still looking for her forever family. She is a spayed Yorkie & Dachshund mix and approximately 9 months old. ‘Ari’ is crate trained, will use pee-pads or outdoors, walks well on a leash, knows the commands “sit, down & kennel”. She is friendly with other dogs and cats and especially loves kids and cuddling!

Meet the beautiful Bella. Bella’s owner passed away and sadly she found herself with nowhere to go. She was an indoor/outdoor cat but is adjusting well to life as indoor only. She tolerates other animals, but isn’t really interested in making new friends unless it’s with people. This older lady would love to lounge around and be like a living sculpture in your home. Bella is 14 yrs old, but the vet says she presents as a 10 year old, so this healthy lady has plenty of life left in her! Please consider welcoming this sweet cat into your home.

Panda_for the foundtaion“Panda”

Panda is a 2 year old American Bully (not to be confused with American Bulldog, this breed is similar to a Staffordshire Bull Terrier). He would prefer a life where he gets to spend a lot of time with his people. Under his rugged good looks he is all love and is NOT a good guard dog since he is eager to please and has never met a stranger. He loves other dogs & cats, but is not a big fan of tortoises. Because Panda has no idea he is a big guy he would do best in a home with kids over 8 or kids familiar with large dogs. He is house trained & can use a doggy door.

Eve_Rescue X“Eve”

This adorable young Medium Poodle mix is under 1 year old & still very much a puppy! She’s very shy, but once she knows you she is a total cuddle bug & wants to be by your side. She is good with other dogs, cats & kids. Eve is crate trained & will use potty pads.

Contact: Dana Storms at (619) 654-4880 or email Dana@rescuex.org



Buffy_Rescue X


This pretty little gal is a 4 year old spayed Maltese. She is standoff-ish at first but once she warms up she is a very loyal companion. She is house trained, uses pee pads & does okay in a crate. Buffy struggles with separation anxiety and would do best in a quiet home that has a lot of time to spend with her. She has been fully obedience trained and her adoption includes some lessons with her trainers.

Livvy_Rescue X“Livvy”

Miss Livvy is a very sweet spayed orange tabby with adorable white markings that is under a year old! She is a playful talker and loves to sunbathe. She does well with other cats & loves dogs.

Contact: Dana Storms at (619) 654-4880 or email Dana@rescuex.org





Munch_rescue X“Munch”

The very adorable Munch has been through the ringer. This tough little guy appears to be part Munchkin & had a rough start in life. He is still a kitten, under 1 year old. His tail is permanently broken in two spots, but that doesn’t slow him down one bit. Munch is very shy & needs a patient home willing to build trust with him. He is a cat’s cat and LOVES hanging out & playing with other cats, so if you’re looking for a friend for a current cat, he may be the guy for you! He is okay with dogs also. He actually enjoys getting his nails clipped & being carried like a baby.

Cats_IMAGE_Shelter Pet Partners Cattery_Help


Shelter Pet Partners is one of the largest cat rescue groups in San Diego. We are raising funds for a new cattery which will be placed inside Natural Instincts Pet store. This cattery will allow multiple cats to be housed and viewed by the public, ultimately allowing more cats to be placed in their forever homes. So instead of donating to a cause that helps save just one animal consider helping us raise funds for the new cattery and it’s furnishings to help save many animals lives yearly. Thank you for your support and please feel free to share!

Here is the link to our GoFundMe Page to donate! https://www.gofundme.com/tnrw4nbd
