Life at a Higher Speed

Happy Friday, friends! These cute animals need a home btw!

Fastlane — 1 year old female calico

Appropriately named, Fastlane is a quick moving and sleek little girl. She enjoys life at a higher speed than most and prefers to keep the road free of other cats. Fastlane is equally gentle and loving to round off her highway ride to your heart.

Pharaoh — 7 year old Austrailian Shepherd

Oh yeah… You’ve seen my type before…the breed that wins all the ribbons at dog athletic competitions and beauty competitions too. I’m a well mannered and handsome guy, easy on the leash, and tender-hearted. My breed is known for being super trainable and very smart!

All pets adopted from SFSPCA have received a pre-adoption veterinary exam and behavior assessment, vaccinations, spay/neuter surgery and a microchip.

  1. I’d like to talk a little about my experience here.

    I’m a big fan of these SFSPCA posts that Houghie has been doing every Friday, and it’s because I adopted an animal from our local pound on 16th St., and it was way easier than I thought it would be, and even more rewarding than I ever imagined.

    I knew that my building was supposed to be “no pets”, but I had been living there for a few years, so I had a talk with the building manager about making an exception. I emphasized the point that it wouldn’t be some huge, noisy beast, and he knew that I don’t spend 18 out of 24 hours in a day elsewhere. In the end, he not only allowed the pet, but allowed several more for other tenants. A victory for responsible animal companionship.

    Aside from that, I also have to say that my adopted pet, who had some trust issues, has been a total joy and an almost constant furry companion — even on vacations. My life and hers have both been improved.

    So that’s what I have to say about it; if you don’t want to do it, that’s fine. But if you think you might want to, and you’re not sure you’ll be allowed, give it some more thought. It might work out.

  2. Hi Cranky Old Mission Guy (and we know you’re not really cranky, cause you have an awesome furry companion!)

    Thanks for sharing this – your experience is exactly why we love what we do, and why what Mission Mission is doing is so valuable to us. I hope others take your story to heart and find some room in there for a new best friend!

    thanks for sharing that!
