My partner and I adopted Ducky (formerly Chuck) from the SF SPCA back in March. Since then he has settled well into his new surroundings in Marin County.

In September 2015, I received a regular email from the SF SPCA about adoptions and Alfred (right) was featured as available. The moment I saw his picture, I knew he'd found his forever home. He was nearly...
