Happy Tails

Cindy and dog.jpg

My dog passed away due to age and a few months later  I found Hana, known at the shelter as Ginny. Three weeks after her adoption we took her camping and she alerted us that there we had a bear in our presence.  When we took her on her first gondola ride she just laid down and went to sleep. She is the best dog and I am glad we found each other. Yolo animal shelter made sure they matched the right dog to me and they helped create a bond that will last a life time.  -Cindy 

My son and  I adopted a wonderful husky from y'all back in January. His name was Oso at the shelter, but my son named him Blueberry, and his full name is Blueberry McPuffinstuff now. It still almost sounds like 'bear' and it fits his doofy personality.

He is doing so well in our home. He is full of energy and happy, and loves walks and literally howls for belly rubs every morning. Once I start petting him, he will grunt repeatedly with every small movement until he flops down on top of my feet, and then it's belly rub time.

Sally & Family


Sally came into the shelter back in September of 2020.  She had a history of escaping and liked to dig her way out of situations.  Several potential adopters came by, but each of them politely passed. Until one-day Sally meet her perfect hoomans!  Here is what they have to say.


“We adore Sally. We had been looking for a dog that seemed too good to be true. We were given what was known of her past history, and after seeing a picture of her smile, we knew she needed to be a part of our lives! Sally has become the most loyal and loving companion. She loves squeaky balls, car rides, rolling in the grass, and long naps in the sun.  We couldn’t imagine a life without our girl.  Sally brings smiles and laughter to us and everyone how has the privilege of meeting her. We are so grateful to give Sally another chance and are so thankful to YCAS for connecting us.”

"We were thinking about getting a dog for a while and Mia exceeded our wants and needs.  We looked at different hypoallergenic breeds, but didn’t have the chance to “foster” or have a trail run with any dogs before fully committing.


I was on board to adopt Mia after day 2 as she was a cuddle bug and silly. Jon took a few more days to warm up to her, but eventually fell in love. We really like Mia’s personality. She is very relaxed (most of the time) and is happy hanging out by her paw-rents on the couch or going out on walks. She loves people and learns quickly. Mia gives lots of hugs and licks. In the end, we didn’t choose Mia as much as she chose us."

Azul, a happy low rider pittie, was adopted by the most compassionate and caring couple, who love her unconditionally and affectionately join Azul (now Lou) in her spectacular silliness. Her Mommy gushes saying Lou is pure joy and she is obsessed with Lou's zest for life, bragging they have become inseparable sidekicks.
