Wherever Chavo came from, he was much loved and knows how to be a good dog. That's the report from his foster parents at Pets Lifeline in Sonoma, who took in this little 3-year-old Chi guy from the Sacramento area in his hour of need. more »

Puppy Arabella can't hear a word you're saying (despite her incredibly cute ears), but it's never occurred to her that she's missing anything. Currently a guest of Pets Lifeline in Sonoma, she's having a fine time in her foster home, where she's learning hand signs for basic commands and doing very nicely. Her three canine foster sisters are great buds, and she's done well in playgroups with other young dogs. more »

Troy, a chihuahua mix looking for a forever home

Not so long ago, little Troy here was on the streets. He was dirty. He was missing a lot of meals. He was also a really, really good escape artist, eluding his would-be rescuer, a kind policeman, for three weeks before he was captured and brought to safety.

Since then, Troy's become quite the star at Pets Lifeline in Sonoma. Since he doesn't have to be scared all the time, he's discovered that being a lap dog is pretty great—in between playtime sessions, of course. This little Chihuahua mix, who's still a youngster, has a big personality; he's looking for a lifelong companion to share adventures and stories of the road. more »
Cassie the dog up for adoption
Back in 1982, when Sonoma County had no animal shelter or rescue organizations, a group of dedicated souls decided to do something about it, and Pets Lifeline was born. Now saving hundreds of dogs and cats each year, Pets Lifeline has grown into an indispensable resource for the county's animals and those who love them, offering a haven for stray and homeless pets, plus spay/neuter services and dog training classes. Pets Lifeline's community outreach also includes humane education in local schools, a popular summer camp, and partnerships with many local organizations.  more »
Since 1982, when concerned locals banded together to address the fact that Sonoma had no animal shelter, Pets Lifeline has been, as its name suggests, an essential lifesaving resource to local dogs and cats who find themselves homeless. At its shelter, opened in 1987, hundreds of critters each year find a safe place to land until they're either reunited with their owners or new families come to take them home. Making this great work possible is a lot of support from the community, including such creative partnerships as the Cru Vin Dog Group, a collaboration of a local distributor and wineries in which a portion of sales go to rescue. more »
Dog with Boy Pets Lifeline
What began in 1984 as a grassroots effort to help Sonoma County deal with the problem of stray and abandoned animals has since evolved into one of the region's most successful shelter and rescue organizations. “What makes Pets Lifeline so unique in the Sonoma Valley is that we’re an hour away from any other municipal or county shelters” says Executive Director Desiree Stinson. “We’re privately owned and depend 100 percent on the community to support us.“ more »
