Daisy is a five-year-old yellow lab mix who I rescued from Chicago. She was taken from her elderly owner and found, several months later, with clear signs of neglect. Despite the harsh conditions, she has the sweetest disposition. Daisy is playful and energetic and does well with both children and adults. She will need some training to be around other dogs, as she was not previously socialized but is very smart and a quick learner! Daisy has been developing some “rescue dog” behavior, such as resource guarding with food and toys, which I believe stems from the prolonged neglect and a lot of moving around as a foster. Daisy is the sweetest girl and especially opens up once she builds trust and familiarity. She loves to cuddle and is endearingly protective of her humans by standing watch and ensuring everyone is okay. Daisy makes for the best companion and will thrive with stability and care. The ideal candidate is someone who will be patient and loving as she adapts to her new environment. A home with a yard would be suitable for her energy or at least substantial walks. Daisy deserves the very best because she is the kindest soul whose been dealt a rough hand. Please contact me with any further questions or inquiries about meeting Daisy.

To expedite the adoption process, please complete the cat or dog adoption form and bring a printed copy with you to the SF SPCA Adoption Center (Hours & Location). This helps us better understand what sort of pet you’re looking for so we can guide you every step of the way! Please bring a valid photo ID and verification that you are allowed to have a pet where you currently live.
First, we’ll meet with you to find out more about you and your pet preferences and answer your questions. Our goal is to help you find the pet that best fits your lifestyle and living situation so we want to make sure you have a realistic understanding of the time and resources necessary to provide training, medical treatment, and proper care for your new pet. This can take time so please allow at least one hour for the adoption process.
Once we have a good understanding of your living situation and the type of pet you’re interested in, we’ll make introductions and let you spend some quality time getting to know each other to see if there’s a love connection. It’s important that all household members take part in this important decision so please make sure everyone is present (including any resident dogs if you’re considering adding a new pooch to your pack).
Once love happens, we’ll complete the paperwork, review all the SF SPCA adoption benefits, provide information on any known medical or behavioral issues, and share tips to make the transition a success for both you and your new pet.
We consider you and your new furry friend a part of the SF SPCA family so please reach out with questions ― and be sure to share your adoption stories and pet photos at sfspca.org/stories
Don’t forget to schedule your first free health exam at the SF SPCA Veterinary Hospital within three days of adopting.
