Do you want a super silly dog that loves to chase leaves in the wind, tear up eucalyptus bark and fetch tiny balls? Someone who will tolerate sweaters, loves to be pampered and has a big personality? Coconut is a nut and would love to keep her, but during this trying time for our family, we can not keep her unfortunately.
Looking for a single owner or a family with kids that are gentle and sweet. She is fully potty trained, but she has a bit of a sensitive tummy and not a huge travel bug. So if you’re wanting to take her on long car rides, she’s probably not the right fit. She would prefer a stay at home kind of owner and if you keep her on her diet without feeding her human food or too many treats, her tummy issues stay at bay.
She’s a beautiful dog and very sweet once she warms up to you. Best way to do that is to get her on a comfy bed, pillow or blanket and she’ll be all yours! She will need a lot of love and reassurance because she is really attached to us now, so if you have a big heart and plenty of hugs to share you might be just the thing for each other!

Bingo came to me one and a half years ago, from an elderly woman who could no longer keep him. He hasn’t been in a shelter. Now I find my own resources dwindling, as I near the end of my 80th decade. I’m trying to find Bingo the just-right home in advance. He loves to run, but he also walks well on a leash. He loves to eat. He loves to chase toys or balls, or find the treat hidden in a puzzle. He has some arthritis issues (of the spine) but they don’t slow him down. He successsfully survived a coyote encounter this Spring. He loves to sleep in the sun. I believe his perfect home would have children ages 9 to 12, and a yard where he can roam.

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.
