TOBY Rolden Retriever Cate Sacks TOBY Rolden Retriever Cate Sacks_2

Toby is a typical sweet, kind and playful 8 month old Purebred Golden Retriever Puppy.  He is good with big and small dogs, children, crate trained, and is going through our bootcamp training to learn leash and house manners.    If you are interested in Toby please email me the home and lifestyle you can give to this wonderful cuddly boy.



“Mira” 6 month old Lab Mix

Mira (1) Mira (3)

Mira is a 6 month old, 30 lbs Brindle spayed female lab mix, puppy who loves people and animals.  Has never shown aggression, has had professional obedience training, is gentle with the toddler as well as their other dog, and loves to play at the dog park.  Mom is a single working mom while her husband is deployed and having two dogs, a busy toddler and a full time job is just too much, especially while living on the second floor of an apartment.
If you are interested in Mira please email a description of the home, family and lifestyle that you can give to her.  She is a super fun, loveable puppy!

“FRANKIE & SUZY-Q” – 4 years old – Could we please come home with you?

Frankie suzy-q_1These littermates have never been apart and have lived in the same loving home for all of their four years of life.  Frankie is bigger, lighter in color, and is sweet as can be. He doesn’t meow much but when he does it’s a low, raspy sound. I always think of him as the most laid back kitty ever – very chill.  Suzy-Q is more compact, likes to talk to you and tell you about her day. She’s also super sweet and loves to sit on your lap. She watches TV and is a big fan of Animal Planet morning shows, especially Cats 101.

Frankie suzy-q_2They were born on a property up off of Japatul to a feral mother who was then taken by a hawk. They were dropper and then spoon fed until they came to live with me. Because of only being with me, they are a bit wary of other people and take some time to warm up. This is especially true of Frankie. My kitty sitter says it takes a couple of visits before he’ll come up to her. The reason they need a new, loving, forever home is because I’m going on the road in August for an indefinite period of time. As stressful as re-homing will be for them in the short-term, riding around in a car would be worse and ongoing. I’m hoping I can find them a new home now and would be able to visit with them to ease the transition for all of us.

They are both up-to-date on shots, are altered, and micro-chipped. There is no re-homing fee and each cat comes with a $50.00 gift certificate to Natural Instincts Healthy Pet Center on Alpine Blvd. Please contact Kellye MacLeod at if you’re interested and for more information.





“‘Roc’ is a beautiful 5-year old red male American Staffordshire Terrier mix who has a huge loving soul and enjoys nothing more than spending time with you, getting lots of pets. All he wants is to be loved and be around people, especially children.   He walks well on leash and loves to go for walks and experience things that he’s never had a chance to do in his previous life. Roc is neutered and up to date with his Distemper/Parvo and Rabies shots. He weighs about 80 lbs. Medical records will be provided. A home visit will be conducted to help ensure the best fit for ‘Roc’ and his new family. Roc’s rehoming fee is $75.

Please call or text me Pam Lawless (Foster Mom) at: (619) 964-1181 or e-mail me at





Sarah_Pam Lawless_3-2016Sara is a 6 year old German Shepherd spayed female with a sweet disposition, intelligent and an easy going temperament. She has a honey-brown and dark brown two tone coloring. She enjoys the company of dogs and humans and will be the family protector.  She only barks when protecting her environment. She loves to sit near you and be petted and have her belly rubbed.  She will make sure she is near where you are – always in protective mode – at a safe distance. She loves to go for a walk and not a leash tugger.

Since moving in with her foster mom, she has overcome an overeating disorder.  For the last month, Sara has been on a strict diet and needs to adhere to that regimen and regular exercise to keep her weight in check.  She is more of a stocky built German Shepherd, so keeping her fit and at a healthy weight is important.

Sarah_Pam Lawless_3-2016_2She is such a smart dog and responds to come, sit, stay, and down.  She is not a jumper, just a tail wagger.  Once she adjusts to her environment with other dogs (about a day or so) she is part of the pack.  She would do best in a home with adults and older children who are respectful of a healthy lifestyle for Sara.

If you are willing to open your home and your heart, you will be blessed with an extremely intelligent, loyal and protective companion.  Give her a second chance and you will not regret it!

Her rescue adoption fee of $150 covers her vaccinations, spay and a dental. She also comes with her favorite pillow and blanket.

To learn more about adopting this sweet girl, please contact “D” at for more information and to request an application. If the application meets with the rescue approval, we will schedule a time for you to get to know her, along with a home visit. Thank you for your interest in rescuing.




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.

Please contact Elizabeth (Foster Mom) 619-246-8088 or email




Nova_Grey Pit 4-2-15


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 Cristen 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 & the Facebook is



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


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.

Kevin_Rescue X“Kevin”

This male terrier mix is about 1 1/2 years old. He has been in our care since he was 6 months old & has spent the last year recovering from the extremely abusive conditions he grew up in. This adorable little guy has overcome it all & is finally ready to be adopted into a forever loving home. He is VERY smart & playful! He loves other dogs, cats & kids. He is such a sweet boy and a total character. Kevin does great in a crate & knows how to use a doggy door.

Buffy_Rescue X“Buffy”

This pretty little gal is a 4 year old Maltese (we suspect with a hint of Poodle). She is standoff-ish at first but once she warms up she is very sweet & cuddly. She is house trained & does well in a crate. Buffy is brand new to our rescue so we’re still learning her likes & dislikes!!

Contact: Dana Storms at (619) 654-4880 or email






Grey_Rescue X“Grey”

This handsome 7 month old kitten is looking for his forever home! A neutered male, Big Grey, is only called ‘Big’ because he was larger than his brothers…he’s actually a perfect size light grey tabby. Grey loves other cats, dogs, kids & making friends! He’s super social and a huge lover.

Contact: Dana Storms at (619) 654-4880 or email






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







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.

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!
