Ruben is Available "Ruben" -- Ruben is a beautiful boy who is also super sweet. He was on our adoption floor for several weeks and finally got adopted about a week and a half ago. The adoptive family seemed to be seasoned dog handlers and they even brought their medium sized dog for a dog to dog intro before adopting. The very first evening they took him home, the new owner attempted to put him in a crate. Ruben (who can be stubborn but NEVER showed any aggressive tendencies with our staff or volunteers), snapped at him as he attempted to crate him but did not bite. He also told us Ruben and his dog were playing roughly and Ruben tried to go under the fence to get away. No injuries were sustained but the family felt like they couldn’t handle Ruben and that very same night, left him in a night receiving kennel at SVACA.

We feel like Ruben didn’t get a fair shake--- he was literally in the home no more than a few hours before they marched him back to the shelter and basically abandoned him in the middle of the night.

Our staff are all very fond of him but feel he needs to be in a different environment. Volunteers and staff have been working with him and he’s a good boy—he’s strong and a bit stubborn as I mentioned (like when volunteers try to return him to his adoption room after play time, he’ll sometimes stop in his tracks and not want to go back into his room. But he eventually does and never showed any sort of aggression to any of the staff or volunteers while here.

Please let me know ASAP if you think you would consider fostering him. I’m happy to send more pictures and videos if there is interest or set up a time to meet him.

About me
Hey there, my name is Kenzo. I am a little rough around the edges and hoping to find a loving home who can make me shine. I can be a little shy but once I warm up I am a sweet Husky who enjoys time on long walks, exploring the best sniff spots. My ears were a little sore coming into HSSV so I can be a little head shy, so I may need you to avoid rubbing my ears and overhead pets for a bit. But I will make up for it by leaning in and being a constant loving companion. Ask to meet me today.
Please to get the contact information.


Female, 4 years old, Grey and White, Blue eyes

Bo is Available Do you have a place for me? "Bo" -- Bo is one of four dogs picked up as strays in Contra Acosta County, Ca and pulled just before euthanasia. Transported to Mound House, Nevada he is safe for the moment but needs people to love and care for him, exercise and give him mental stimulation. I have been working with him and find him to be sweet, affectionate, gentle and smart. He suffered some trauma in his capture and seems to be afraid of some men, not all. He’s gotten along with other dogs in rescue but haven’t seen him with cats or children . He has been kenneled so I don’t know about house training. One of his pack mates is. He has been neutered and is up to date on vaccinations. I think he has been chipped but I’ll check to make sure.
I’d take him, but I’m a small 75 year old woman and I’m not the right one for him.

Male, 3 years old, Tan and White, Amber eyes

Wiley is Available Do you have a place for me? "Wiley" -- Wiley is one of four Husky mixes picked up by Contra Costa County shelter. He was pulled out the day before euthanasia and brought to rescue in Mound House, NV. I have been working with him at the rescue and find him to be friendly, cuddly, easy on leash and smart to learn simple tricks. He is safe but craves human company and mental stimulation. He needs a job. He crawls right into my lap or jumps right into my car. He does like to dig - boredom mostly. He would make a fine working dog or perhaps ranch dog.
