Bach is a very outgoing, playful boy who loves doggy playtimes and lots of attention from humans and LOVES it if those humans have treats for him too! Bach looks like a lab mix, but he could have some pitty mix as well as MANY other breeds, like a typical Mexico street pup. This adorable Baja blend puppy was rescued in Tijuana, Baja Mexico in late May when he was found wandering the streets searching for food and zig zagging the dangerous streets of Tijuana. He now has finished his second set of vaccinations and quarantine and is ready to be transported to San Diego to find his forever family. Bach and Bruno (friends) will be ready for meet and greets as soon as Sunday 7/5. He is scheduled to be sterilized in the 92104 area code in late August and adopters need to be local to San Diego to be able to drive them to their pre-scheduled neuter/spay appointments as we will not be able to cancel/reschedule and will only consider adopters local to San Diego who will follow our request of having them sterilzied at their scheduled appointments (ABSOLUTELY NOT LATER). Sadly, because of COVID, that is the soonest available appointment and we don't want to hold them back from being adopted and spending time with their forever families. However, families will need to continue their vaccination series through their own expense at family veterinarians. This puppy will likely be no smaller than 40lbs and we don't believe he will be bigger than 60lbs, likely will be in the 45-55lbs range full grown. Adopters should have time for puppy training ei house, potty, crate and leash training. Like all pups, they are social and friendly with all they meet both human and animals. The meets will be scheduled in the 92117 area and we are accepting applications now. Please submit online at arwob.org Don't wait...Submit an adoption application today!    DOG ADOPTION APPLICATIONVisit this organization's web site to see any additional information available about this pet.If you would like to meet one of our animals, PLEASE fill out an adoption application.

When they first came to ARWOB as Tijuana, Baja stray kitties one was significantly bigger than the other, hence the 'little and big' Toms. These brothers would LOVE a home together and we are really hopeful we can make that happen, especially for Little Tom who is the little shyer boy of the two.    Update as of 6/8: Big and Little Tom have been enjoying their time together in their foster home and their foster mom has this to say about them.Big Tom is quite a character.  Sweet and huggy but also highly energetic and a bit mischievous. He likes to sit beside me for pets and use my lap as a pillow. He offers his paw for a handshake and maybe a treat, and  when he feels the urge, he finds someone or something to wrestle and play.  Biggie has a sweet cooo instead of a meow and is happy to have conversations with us. He goes bonkers with a dangling toy and then runs with it to a different room of the house! Hasn't learned to bring it back though. Ha!   Little Tom is a sweet adorable boy. He comes to us and talks when he's ready for affection.  So cute!  He loves being petted and sweet talked and responds with loud happy purrs. Little Tom loves little toy fur mice and carries them around the house. He runs and plays with Big, but also is content on calmly playing by himself with toys.   Both Little and Big Tom like to be near us in the same room of the house unless they are snoozing or bird watching in their window cat perch. Both are very interactive with us.  They love to play alone or with each other and/or us. Toss a toy mouse or ball, or dangle a toy, and they instantly go crazy!  Both have soft fur and gorgeous blue eyes.  Big Tom and Little Tom make a great team or are happy with some alone time and are a pleasure to be with.  Both get lots of kisses and are happy to show their affection, as well. The best matched family? Someone who could keep them together, is looking for kittens for companionship and without having to have the feline friends in your lap or face 24/7, since they are not very needy kittens. Not sure? Submit the cat adoption application online and request a foster to adopt trial of 2-3 weeks to make sure they are the ones before you finalize! submit an application at arwob.org Visit this organization's web site to see any additional information available about this pet.If you would like to meet one of our animals, PLEASE fill out an adoption application.

Update 6/25/20: Here is what our foster family has to say about Botitas and Sombrita: “I would definitely say Botitas and Sombrita are bonded.  They often sleep snuggled together and groom each other.  They have both learned to play fetch and politely don’t chase each other’s toys when a game is in progress.” Update 5/25/20: Here is the update we have received from his foster family: “Botitas is a sweetheart who loves being petted and curling up next to you on the couch.  He is also an adventurer, looking for the highest point in the house he can reach.  He loves to play, both on his own and with his brother Sombrita.  He is very interested in the world and can spend hours sitting in a window checking on the happenings outside.” Original Rescue Story: Botitas and Sombrita were rescued when they were only a couple of months old by a good sam in Ensenada. The family was not able to find them a home and sought help from ARWOB in order to relinquish them to our group so we could place them in our adoption program. We know they are very friendly, outgoing, social kitties who lived in a home with cats and dogs. They are now in San Diego and could use a forever or temporary home. The boys should stay together and both are teens who are almost full grown.

As of now, she is a total sweetheart with people and, of course, is a beautiful Ensenada stray who was rescued during the holidays as she would approach people begging to be fed. She was picked up by a good sam while they fed her and noticed her tail seemed to be bleeding with something around it; it turned out she had several rubber bands around her tail and also some sort of cut making her bleed, so we took her to the vet and now she has a very cute 3/4 tail! We will update her bio as we learn more about her and for now would love to find a foster family for this beautiful kitty!To submit an application to adopt please visit us online at arwo.orgVisit this organization's web site to see any additional information available about this pet.If you would like to meet one of our animals, PLEASE fill out an adoption application.

Cocoa-Bean

Poodle (Miniature)

You can fill out an adoption application online on our official website.Please review our Adoption Process before filling out an applica... show more

You can fill out an adoption application online on our official website.Please review our Adoption Process before filling out an application.  If you would like to try a Foster to Adopt trial, please fill out an Adoption Application.  If you are only interested in temporarily Fostering one of our rescues, please fill out a Foster Application.  UPDATE 6/8/20: Cocoa-Bean has been taken to a local San Diego board certified veterinarian surgeon to have a physical exam and X-rays. ARWOB has just found out that the surgery Cocoa-Bean had done in Ensenada Mexico in April 2019, was NOT done by a licensed veterinarian. He had been rescued with a fracture to his hind leg and the unlicensed vet decided to place plates and pins in that leg without any real experience in performing that type of surgery. The good Sam that rescued and cared for Cocoa-Bean just trusted that vet and went along with the recommended treatment. ARWOB agreed to take Cocoa-Bean from the kind person who rescued him after an entire year had passed. Now that he has been in foster care in San Diego since May 2020, his foster family realized he is a fantastic and very well-behaved dog. However, we started to wonder if he is just really mellow or if he is actually in pain. His foster noticed that although he uses his hind leg, he would start to skip and hop after running around with his doggie friends. As the adoption applications started to come in for Cocoa-Bean, we decided we should take him in for a consultation exam with a qualified specialist to find out the actual status of the plate and pins in his hind leg. It was determined by the qualified vet that Cocoa-Bean is actually feeling pain and discomfort, especially when touching the injured leg. At this point the options would be (1) performing a very extensive surgery (costing anywhere between $10,000-$20,000) with 2-4 months of recovery and a lot of follow up vet visits that may or may not work; or (2) amputate the leg so that we know for sure he will no longer be in pain. Given the options, we have decided that we will amputate Cocoa-Beans leg and this means he should be ready for adoption at the end of June. UPDATE 5/22/20: Here is the update we have received from his foster family: 'Beans' (as we've nicknamed him) has settled in nicely to the comforts of home life! He enjoys his daily routine of napping inside, napping outside in the sunshine, walks through the park, belly rubs and learning manners for jerky treats. He's fairly quiet and keeps to himself, but greatly appreciates snuggles & pets! Beans would do well in a relaxed environment with a family who will be gentle and shower him with all the pets he deserves! Some other things we've learned about him: picky eater (loves FreshPet food though), loves walks, doesn't shed, needs to wear a harness as he can slip out of a collar, not a fan of big dogs on walks, not into toys or bones, sleeps great in a crate, and loves being outside.” ORIGINAL RESCUE STORY: Cocoa Bean was rescued by a good Sam in January of 2019 when he noticed a little wet dog with very matted coat limping and dragging his left hind leg. He stopped the car, picked him up, and took him to the nearest veterinary clinic. The Xrays showed a fractured hind leg and the good Sam took him to a vet for surgery and medical care. Fast forward a year and he requested help with his adoption since he was not able to find a home himself in Mexico for fear Cocoa Bean would end up in a home that would again allow him to roam the streets of Ensenada. He contacted ARWOB for help and Cocoa Bean is new to the group. Cocoa is healthy and will have a slight limp on his back leg as they had placed a metal plate in his leg to fix the fracture. He can still run around and walk, but he will not be a great exercise partner as he shouldn't be a hiking or running partner. He will be happy to walk neighborhoods and run around a yard or patio with his friends. He is fantastic with children, dogs and cats.  To apply to adopt Cocoa-Bean, please submit an adoption application online at arwob.org.Visit this organization's web site to see any additional information available about this pet.If you would like to meet one of our animals, PLEASE fill out an adoption application.

Sadly one of the manx female kittens was too sick to make it to adoption, but her two sisters have been very healthy, happy and, like their foster mom mentions, they are very social, loving and always want to be part of the family. Oreo has a manx tail just like mom and Brownie is a normal tail kitty.Ideally, both sisters would be adopted together. Cookie is an adorable Manx, dilute tortie with no nub for a tail, so its like having a french bulldog around :)Cookie is very people friendly, could care less about other cats for the most part... adults or kittens. She is not very playful yet as she loves to lounge and walk around the house checking things out, but hasn't got the hang of toys just yet. She loves her scratching post. Ideally, she needs a foster or adopter who will be able to start her off slowly in a bathroom/bedroom for the first couple of weeks in a new home since she was a stray cat. A couple times she has peed inapproprietly (or at least we think she has - we don't know who the culprit was, but we think it was Cookie who peed in a carton box and a little area of dirt that was on the floor, sooooo she may have thought 'this is where i am supposed to go'. Just in case, we want her to be treated as a kitten supervised when home and placed in a control enviornment when not being supervised or alone to make sure the litter box habit is WELL learned) She always goes #2 in the box that we know of .... so again possibly 2 accidents in the 3 weeks she has been in foster since rescue.The kittens are now 2 months/2 pounds of age, but, sadly, it's a bit difficult to get spay/neuter appointments because of COVID guidelines with veterinary hospitals. Although these kittos are available for adoption NOW we will give priority to families who live in San Diego so they can foster to adopt the family meaning, they can go home with their forever family who will be requested to drive the kitten(s) to their scheduled surgery appointment, at which time their adoption can be finalized. This way, the foster mom can receive a much needed break. The kittens are very well socialized and, like all babies, are great with all humans, dogs, and cats.Ideal adopters will have another cat at home or adopt the pair to keep each other company for the next 15yrs of their lives. Please submit a cat adoption application online at arwob.orgVisit this organization's web site to see any additional information available about this pet.If you would like to meet one of our animals, PLEASE fill out an adoption application.

I’m playful and love wrestling with my sisters. I’m also sweet and like to be pet and cuddled.   Dot- female, they called me Dot because of my gray dot markings. I rarely make noise, but when I do, it is a little “squeak”.  I love to be held and cuddled, but also have fun chasing my siblings.   Khloe- female, I am a love. Always the first one to run out and say “hi”. I love to be pet and cuddled, but also love to play and chase my siblings.  My foster mom thinks I’m pretty smart too.   Courtney-female, I love to play, have fun, and check out new spaces to hide in.  I love to be held and pet too. I’m pretty laid back and not in a rush to eat or say hi, especially if I’m getting my beauty sleep! Meet sweet Emerald! Emerald was rescued from the local Emerald Hills neighborhood in San Diego when we received a call from a local citizen who was hoping ARWOB could take in this pregnant girl into our care as they had seen her for a month or two and she had visited their property asking for food. They knew she was social and worried for her safety maneuvering the life of the canyons and streets as she was seen with 1-2 other cats who they hadn't seen for a while.  We took Emerald to the vet to have her spayed and it turned out the girl was not pregnant;  she had already had her babies! Frantically, we contacted the good sam asking if they knew about it or knew where she could have had the babies. No information, they started to help looking around the neighbors' properties. The ARWOB founder went to this neighborhood and started to talk to people around the area asking if they knew the cat or had heard kittens crying for their mama..,,, nothing. We ended up taking mom back to see if she could go find her babies and hopefully we could observe and follow her, but she didn't go anywhere for a couple of hours. Worried for her safety, we couldn't leave her behind and were devasted about the outcome for the babies.....wherever they may be. Almost 48hrs later, we received a late night call from the good sam; her neighbor heard kittens and she walked over and crawled under the home to find the litter of babies. How dI'd we know they were hers? They were probably 2-3 days old with their umbilical cords, and almost identical to sweet Emerald. We reunited the family of 5 kitts and momma Emerald immediately took over for their care. Sadly, one little baby didn't make it the first 24hrs, but the rest of the littles did amazing. Emerald was extraordinary and we were over the moon happy for the outcome! Emerald is done nursing her babies and the babies will be 2 pounds the first week of July and hopefully sterilize so they can go home. Emerald is a social love bug, is great with her kittens and we think she will be ok with cats, probably ok with dogs but unsure about both so we are happy tod o a foster to adopt trial for Emerald to the right home if they have other pets, otherwise perhaps she can be adopted with one of her babies or as an only girl. The kittens must be adopted into a home with other cats or with a sibling.  To meet this family, please submit a cat adoption application online at arwob.org.

They knew she was social and worried for her safety maneuvering the life of the canyons and streets as she was seen with 1-2 other cats who they hadn't seen for a while. We took Emerald to the vet to have her spayed and it turned out the girl was not pregnant;  she had already had her babies! Frantically, we contacted the good sam asking if they knew about it or knew where she could have had the babies. No information, so they started to help looking around the neighbors' properties. The ARWOB founder went to this neighborhood and started to talk to people around the area asking if they knew the cat or had heard kittens crying for their mama..,,, nothing. We ended up taking mom back to see if she could go find her babies and hopefully we could observe and follow her, but she didn't go anywhere for a couple of hours. Worried for her safety, we couldn't leave her behind and were devasted about the outcome for the babies.....wherever they may be.Almost 48hrs later, we received a late night call from the good sam; her neighbor heard kittens and she walked over and crawled under the home to find the litter of babies. How did we know they were hers? They were probably 2-3 days old with their umbilical cords, and almost identical to sweet Emerald. We reunited the family of 5 kitts and momma Emerald immediately took over for their care. Sadly, one little baby didn't make it the first 24hrs, but the rest of the littles did amazing. Emerald was extraordinary and we were over the moon happy for the outcome!Emerald is done nursing her babies and the babies will be 2 pounds the first week of July and hopefully sterilize so they can go home. Although Emerald was rescued as a stray, she’s wonderfully socialized, uses her litter box, and loves a good snuggle and pets and will provide loving companionship.. Emerald is a social love bug, is great with her kittens and we think she will be ok with cats, probably ok with dogs but unsure about both so we are happy to do a foster to adopt trial for Emerald to the right home if they have other pets, otherwise perhaps she can be adopted with one of her babies or as an only girl. The kittens must be adopted into a home with other cats or with a sibling. To meet this family, please submit a cat adoption application online at arwob.org. We will contact applicants at the end of June/early July. We are looking for LOCAL SAN DIEGAN ADOPTERS ONLY.Visit this organization's web site to see any additional information available about this pet.If you would like to meet one of our animals, PLEASE fill out an adoption application.

Thankfully, they found a foster family who is not only experienced in rescue, but also bottle feeding kittens since Barbie was a little depleted from milk and her foster had to help raise the kitts... all 7 of them!The kittens are now 2 months/2 pounds of age, but, sadly, it's a bit difficult to get spay/neuter appointments because of COVID guidelines with veterinary hospitals. Although these kittos are available for adoption NOW, we will give priority to families who live in San Diego so they can foster to adopt, meaning they can go home with their forever family who will be requested to drive the kitten(s) to their scheduled surgery appointment at which time their adoption can be finalized; this way the foster mom can receive a much needed break. The kittens are very well socialized and, like all babies, are great with all humans, dogs, and cats.Ideal adopters will have another cat at home or adopt a pair to keep each other company for the next 15yrs of their lives. Please submit a cat adoption application online at arwob.orgVisit this organization's web site to see any additional information available about this pet.If you would like to meet one of our animals, PLEASE fill out an adoption application.

I was super tiny when I arrived at my foster home after my first eye surgery. A nice person found me in Tijuana with a huge cut on my face over my left eye and my arm. I've had two eye surgeries and my eye is healed now, but as you can see, my left eye opens not as much as my right eye. My eye healed quite well considering how bad my injury was and part of my eyelid was missing from the large cut, BUT that doesn't affect my vision at all and being a crazy playful kitten! :)  I am fearless, adventurous, love playing with my toys, love wrestling with my stuffed animal kitty friend Chester, and doing the zoooooommies!!!  I also love meal time and sitting in my foster mom's lap to clean my face and take a food coma nap.  When my foster mom's lap isn't available, I love snoozing in the cozy cat bed with a cozy blanket. I try to play with the resident cat, but he's an old man and isn't amused by my kitten shenanigans..HA! :) Check out my cute photos and videos! Some show me after my surgeries and my eye looks kind of yuicky, but my eye is all healed now and I am ready for my furever family!! :) I would love to be adopted along with another kitten or join a family with a young cat who likes to play and wrestle, as well as do the zoooooommies with me! :) To adopt, please submit a cat adoption application online at arwob.org      Visit this organization's web site to see any additional information available about this pet.If you would like to meet one of our animals, PLEASE fill out an adoption application.
