Happy Tails
Puppy Woodstock (formerly Waffles) continues to thrive in his forever home!

His adopter Quin recently sent Woodstock's fosters Kalin and Omar this beyond-adorable photo, saying, "Our 13-year-old sharing his bed with baby!"

Isn't that precious?!

Congratulations Waffles! We can't wait to see how you turn out as you grow up!
These seven super-cute Stockton pups are among those who found their homes recently!

Clockwise from top left: Stew, Scout, Clara, Barny, Camilla, Jaya and Bean all found homes of their very own.

A huge congratulations to all of these lucky pups and their adopters!
Don’t forget: If you adopted through SSPA, we offer post-adoption counseling to help with your new dog’s transition into your home! Email! You can send "Happy Tails" updates there as well!
We Really Need Fosters!
We can help match you with a pup in need!
Join our life-saving foster team!

Fostering not only saves shelter dogs’ lives; it also brings you so much joy as you watch the dogs start to thrive in your care!

And when they leave for their forever home, it’s one of the most rewarding and wonderful feelings around!

Hero, pictured with volunteer Dani, is one of our dogs most in need of foster as he recovers from hip surgery.

SSPA can match you with a dog that will fit into your home - and there are so many to choose from! Fill out our questionnaire today!
Adoptable Dogs in Foster

Adorable sweetheart alert!

This is one special boy, and his sweetness knows no bounds!

He was hit by a car and can’t move his back end well, so he may need a wheelchair to live his best life!

He’s looking for someone special special to allow him to retire and enjoy a wonderful life.

He’s fine with dogs and kids!

Lunchbox (LB)

Lunchbox is one fabulous pup - truly a dream dog!

And it isn't just his handsome looks!

He’s great with people, loves getting his play on with other pups, and we suspect he might do well with kids!

He'd prefer a home without cats.

Ready to bring this rock star home?! Fill out an adoption application.

This handsome dude is a volunteer favorite!

He takes a little time to warm up to people, so he’s looking for a patient and understanding family.

He could be paired with a well-matched female dog in his new home.

Once you gain his trust, he does zoomies and flops over for belly rubs!

This adorable boy is a dream dog!

He's a rock star in every way. We think he may not be able to hear but that doesn’t stop him from being all-around wonderful!

His favorite thing is to roll over for belly rubs and we think he’d be a great fit for a family with children.

Ready to take in this adorable dude? Fill out an adoption application today!

This little one is finally safe in foster after living on the streets for a while.

She's very sweet and is OK with other dogs.

She's looking for a special adopter who will continue to help her build confidence and work on her fear issues. Her person will need to be patient as she takes some time to acclimate to new people and handling.

A quiet home without young children would be best for her.

Ready to open your heart and home to this girl?! Fill out an adoption application.
