Will you be the one who turns Zoey’s frown upside down? Zoey is just a sad girl who wants nothing more than a lap to snuggle on, a person to love, a bed to sleep in, and a window to peer out of.
Zoey is an 8 year old sweet and loving girl who was relinquished and just doesn’t understand where her family went. She is up to date on her vaccines, spayed, and microchipped. She seems to get along fine with other kitties but would prefer to snuggle with her person or under the covers.
Pet of the Week for July 1-7, 2018
Let us tell you the amazing story of Pip, the chihuahua long hair mix. A couple of months ago, Pip and his brother Scout were running terrified on the streets of East LA. Lucky for them some nice people were able to catch them with live traps. They were then transported to us where we gave them a quiet area to hopefully relax. They both were very scared, they were feral, and had obviously never experienced human touch. But never once did either show any aggression, just very fearful.
After working with them for a couple of weeks, we were able to get both neutered, but still could not pet them as they were still unsure of people. We could not even get a collar or slip leash on either without them flipping out. But our determined volunteers continued to work with them and soon we were able to get harnesses on them. It wasn’t until each got to spend a week in amazing foster care that they truly learned how to be dogs, walk on a leash, and truly love human touch.
Now, Pip and his brother Scout, are both ready for their furever home! They still have things to learn, they still have more confidence to build, but they both would love to do that with their new furever family.
Pip & Scout are only about 1 year old, both are neutered, microchipped, and vaccinated. They both would do best in a household with older children or just adults. They both also love playing with other dogs.

Pet of the Week for June 24-30, 2018
Have you ever been the last one picked for a team, to be picked to dance, to be picked for anything? It’s not a good feeling and we think we all have experienced it at one point or another in our lives.
Here’s little Berlin, the last little guy of 12 kittens that were available for adoption this weekend, who is still waiting to get picked. His brother and sister both got picked, all his new little friends also did, but now Berlin is alone. He’s sad, we are sad, and we will do everything we can to find this sweet boy his furever home.
Berlin is one of 9 kittens that were saved from an uncertain life out in the streets of Fallbrook by one of our volunteers and a fantastic team of locals who came to help. Berlin is a very lucky boy, he got to spend 3 weeks with his brother and sister in foster care, running, playing and learning wonderful social skills. (Thank you Cheryl) Now he has come back to FAS and he has been neutered, microchipped, vaccinated, and treated for worms and now just needs a family!
Will you be his family and make this little boy's life complete?
Pet of the Week for June 17-23, 2018
Meet Spot! Spot is such a good boy. He loves being with other dogs and cats. He’s not a big guy and would really just like to be with you.
Spot has been with us for about a year now but was lucky to spend a lot of that time in a wonderful foster home. He immediately was just one of the pack, hanging out with his foster siblings and enjoying walks, cuddles on the couch, and lounging in the backyard. Unfortunately, his foster family have moved back home after completing their time in the USMC and they were not able to adopt him.
So, Spot is back at FAS, hoping for a new foster or a permanent adoption. Spot did have a growth removed from his back foot back in September of 2017. It was sarcoma but the pathology report says it was clean margins so we are hopeful that it does not return.
Because of this, we would love for him to find a long term foster if not a permanent adoption. We understand that some will have concerns about possible vet expenses due to his history, but as a foster family all you need to provide is love, FAS provides everything else including vet expenses.
Will you be Spot’s hero? Come and meet this adorable, lovable boy and all his furry friends waiting for their hero!
Pet of the Week for June 10-16, 2018
This handsome panther kitty is such a love! He has been with FAS since 12/30/17 and is 10 years old. He is a quiet boy, loves people and attention, and enjoys the company of other kitties once he get to knows them.
Shortly after Jamba was relinquished to FAS we discovered he has a mild case of asthma. Because of this he is kept separate from the other cats in our care. He spends his days just sleeping in his bed until a volunteer or visitor goes to see him. He gets so excited because he just craves human touch.
Jamba is doing well at FAS even though he has asthma. We do what we can for him, which is steroid shots, but steroid shots are not good for their little systems so we do our best to keep his area clean and him calm.
Jamba needs a home, a healthy environment for him to be in so his asthma can be better controlled. At 10 years old, being a black cat, and having a health issue, his chances for adoption are not great, which is very sad because he has nothing but love to give. Maybe you will be his family? Maybe you will free him from his cage and give him a window to nap in? Come and meet this adorable boy and see for yourself how amazing he is!
Pet of the Week for June 3-9, 2018
Woof! My name is Charlie! I’m 7 years young, a perfect blend of shepherd and chow. I’m a quiet boy who loves to go for walks, just hang out, go to Fallbrook Pet Parlor for a spa day, and be with people.
I am not really a fan of anyone who could steal my thunder, so I would really love to be your only child, 2 or 4 legged. We could hang out, we could go for long walks, we could do all kinds of fun things together!
Won’t you please come and meet me and all my furry friends who are also waiting for their chance at a furever home? I’m neutered, microchipped, vaccinated, and freshly groomed too!

Curtis came to us on March 23, 2018. He is a 6 year old terrier mix, loves stuffed toys, going for walks, being with people, and playing with his furry friend in our play yard.
Curtis has undergone quite a bit in his 6 years and in his short time here at FAS. He had 3 hernias in his little back side. Curtis spent most of his time wearing a diaper because he had no control of his bowel movements due to the multiple hernias. We knew we had to try to help this sweet little guy.
Curtis underwent 3 surgeries at Pearson Animal Hospital and we are happy to report all were successful and he has made a full recovery. He still does not have complete control but no longer requires a diaper and even though he has been through so much, he has never lost his sweet little disposition and loving personality.
If you would like to meet this handsome fella and possibly make him your very own please visit us during our adoption hours.
This gorgeous Tortoiseshell is a spry 13 years old, is a quiet girl who loves belly rubs and attention, gets along beautifully with all her pen mates and has been at FAS since 2010.
Why has Ginger been here so long you may be asking yourself? Being an adult kitty and a quiet kitty, she just has been overlooked.
Ginger is a very sweet girl, it only takes a minute for her to love new people so won’t you come and meet her?
Such a face! This is Jake, sweetest little guy who doesn’t look a day over 17! That’s right, this handsome fella is 17 years old with the cutest bounce in his step you will ever see.
Jake came to FAS about a year ago. He spent the better part of that year in a wonderful foster home. Unfortunately his foster Mom had to leave the country to care for family so Jake is now back at FAS.
Jake is a quiet guy, likes to just relax and take in the scenery. He doesn’t mind other dogs as long as they know he’s the main man and he loves walks! He really does have quite the bounce in his stride that will make you question his age.
Jake is looking for either a furever home or a long term foster where he can just hang out, just be loved and give love. FAS will provide you with everything needed to care for Jake if you or someone you know is interested in fostering this handsome boy. Or even better, make him officially yours by adopting!
Pet of the Week for May 6-12, 2018
Meet Katie, a beautiful, sweet, fun girl who, through no fault of her own, has been a resident here at FAS since May of 2008. Why you may ask? Statistics say that black cats are the least adopted cats nationwide. Black cats are also the most frequently euthanized because they are at shelters the longest. Add that Katie is an adult cat only adds to the probability of not being adopted.
During Katie’s 10 years with FAS she has become a volunteer favorite. She is a quiet girl and very loving. Up until a few months ago, Katie was able to be in a community pen with all her kitty friends, but she developed stomatitis unfortunately. We did everything we could to try and find her relief from the pain but nothing worked. We were forced to have her teeth removed, but that’s ok because one look at Katie now and you can see how much better she feels! The only drawback is that Katie cannot go back with her friends in the pen, she must now be caged so that she can have her moistened dry food and canned food.
We would love for you to come and meet this very special girl, Katie. She may just steal your heart as she has all of ours. 10 years is a very long time for her to wait for her furever family.

Pet of the Week for April 29-May 5, 2018
Kowalski is saying, “Hey, get me outta here, purrrlease”!
Kowalski is a 4 year old cool cat! He will rub on you all day and insist on ear rubs, but he does not like being picked up. He is a very independent young man who likes things his way, on his terms and as long as you allow him to be him, he will be your best friend. He also likes to be the one and only stud muffin so no kitty siblings is a must, and best that there are no small children as well. He may tolerate a doggie sibling as long as he can be the boss man.
Kowalski is neutered, microchipped, and up to date on all his vaccines. All he asks is that his new family allows him to be him, that they give him ear rubs when asked, keep his food bowl full at all times, and that they tell him yes, Kowalski, you are the boss man.
Pet of the Week for April 22-28, 2018
Meet Matilda! You don’t have to tell her twice that’s she’s hot stuff. This power house of love is 60 lbs, she is just about 3 years old, and was rescued from the Ramona Humane Society where she was very close to being euthanized simply for being there too long.
Matilda loves people, she is very active, and loves to play and have adventures. Going on walks makes her day but she would like to be your one and only furry love. She has been spayed, is up to date on all her vaccines, and is microchipped.

Well hello there Smitty! Don’t look so sad. It’s your week in the spotlight!
Smitty looks sad because no one is petting him right now. There is nothing that Smitty loves more than pets and play time and love...lots and lots of love. Smitty also is sad because he had a home, but his family moved and left him behind. Lucky for him though that someone found him and brought him back to FAS.
Smitty is a special needs cat. He has urinary crystals but don’t let that stop you from giving this lovable boy a furever home! All he requires is a special diet which is available from your vet, Chewy.com and Amazon.
Pet of the Week for March 11-17, 2018
Hi everyone! My name is Newton. I’m a Bichon Frise. I am about 5 years old, I’m neutered, microchipped, and vaccinated and ready to find my true love!
I was rescued by a very nice lady in Mexico recently. My previous owners took good care of me but could no longer care for me so I’m lucky that Elena was able to bring me to the good old USA. I got to spend a few days at Elena’s house before she brought me to FAS. What fun that was! I had the best time playing with all her rescue dogs and the only time I was upset was when I couldn’t play with all my new friends. Elena also says I’m such a good boy and so well behaved.
I do have only one problem, well, it’s not a problem for me actually. I have one bum eye that I can’t see out of very well, but my other one works just fine so really it isn’t a problem at all.
Come and see me this week! I’m just a fluff ball with endless amounts of love.

Hi everyone! My name is Samson. I’m only a year old and I’m full of energy but I love cuddles. I’m adorable and my only wish is for a family to call my own. Did I mention, I’m adorable?
The Volunteers at FAS who take care of me are wonderful and give me lots of attention and love but I need more! See, I’m still a puppy. I have lots to learn! I may live with a bunch of doggie roommates but I’m still not sure how to make friends with them. I also get so excited when one of the volunteers is going to take me out I just can’t help but jump for joy, all over the place! I so badly want to learn how to be the perfect boy and I so badly just want a family to love! Will you be my furever family?
I’ve been microchipped (ouch), I’ve been vaccinated (wasn’t so bad), then I was neutered (major ouchie!!!). But it’s all good because now I’m ready for my furever family!

She came to us as a stray/feral back in 2012 and spent much of her time in our feral room until we noticed there was something wrong with her mouth.

Not only does Blue no longer have to suffer with painful teeth but she is so grateful for feeling better. She is full of nothing but love and cuddles.

Meet Clareece! She has quite the story and is hoping her final chapter of her adventure is with you! A few months ago Clareece was brought to us when she was found with not just 3 tiny babies, but serious injuries. Her abdomen was ripped open and her tail was badly injured. We got her to the vet as soon as we could where she underwent surgery to repair her abdomen. Her tail was so badly damaged it had to be amputated. We also got her babies cared for as she would never be able to nurse.
After a couple of weeks at the vet, Clareece was healthy enough to come back to FAS. After a few more weeks of recovery, she was cleared to be spayed and microchipped. Now this very sweet and very grateful little girl, with her bobtail, is ready to write the final chapter of her story, to have a furever home and family!
Clareece is only about a year old, spayed, microchipped, and vaccinated. She is very loving, very playful, and gets along beautifully with her pen mates.
