Happy Tails: May 25,2020 – May 31,2020

426 pets found a home this past week!
  • 127 pets were adopted
  • 19 pets left with foster families
  • 153 pets left with our rescue partners
  • 127 pets were reunited with their families!

Incredible! We had so many pets finding new homes last week. We’re thankful for our adoptions team, our shelter team, and all of the families and rescue partners who find it in their hearts to bring home a furry family member From our team at ACS, and all of our furry friends we thank you!

For those who aren’t able to adopt – there are still many ways to help and make a difference! 

During all of June, our friends at Petco Foundation will match every dollar donated to us - up to $20,000! Donating is as easy as one, two, click.

This week's Happy Tail:

Meet Blu! This handsome pup was found by our Animal Care Officers roaming the streets in early May, searching for scraps of food and a safe place to rest. When we scanned him for a microchip, we found that he belonged to a family in the area. Our officers were able to successfully reach Blu’s family, but unfortunately, they could no longer take care of him, so we brought Blu under our care.

Blu received immediate veterinary attention,and proper care upon entering our shelter that same day. While he was with us, he didn’t receive a lot of interest from potential adopters. That is, until his soon-to-be parents contacted us. While Blu waited in our kennels, he had an incredible family waiting to meet him the very next day.

The next morning came, Blue met his potential family - and they immediately fell in love with him!

Sailor’s new family updated us a few days later letting us know that “He became a country dog overnight. He now has several chicken “sisters” and tons of land to run around.” “My husband is a cop so he is the thin Blu line in the family” said Sailor’s new mom. Blu is now living his best life and we couldn’t be happier for him and his new family.


Stories like this give us hope that the perfect family is out there for every pet that comes through our doors. If you have a happy tail story, share it with us! Email us at
