Peaches doesn't understand why her owner brought her to the shelter.
This cutie with the beautiful eyes is about three years old and weighs nine pounds. She gets along with other kitties, too.
As you can tell, she is a bit afraid in the shelter environment. Hearing dogs barking, kennel staff carts rumbling by with strangers peering at her through the window is taking a toll on Peaches.
The bad news is she's succumbing to kennel stress and is at risk of being euthanized.
The good news is that Peaches is available to adopt at the San Jose Animal Care Center
and during their Home for the Holidays promotion, her adoption fee is just $12!
When she sees the shelter's cat volunteers come into the community room, she will come out from her cubby to say hello and get some pets. The volunteers say she is friendly and gentle. She is just a little shy and would do best in a quiet home.YOU
can save her life... go to San Jose Animal Care Center
located at 2750 Monterey Road in San Jose and adopt Peaches #A727811 today!
UPDATE: 12/3/13 - Molly is no longer at risk. She has a foster home and is saying good-bye to shelter life.
Once her skin condition is cleared up, she will be available to adopt. A shout out to our friends at Our Pack for rescuing this wonderful girl!
Here is a recent video of Miss Molly! This sweet goober still needs a temporary or permanent home ASAP.
She was a day away from euthanasia.
While she was granted a 'stay of execution', we only have a short time to find Molly a foster home to save her life.
This friendly, shy girl has some hair loss due to demodectic mange. Her condition is treatable with some medicated baths and it is not contagious. With proper care she will be recovered in no time!
Molly needs a refresher on her leash skills but she is easy to handle and loves people. She thinks she's a lap dog, too. She is a petite Pittie girl and a youngster at 1 1/2 years old.
We aren't sure how she is with other dogs but Molly showed no signs of aggression and didn't even bark when a few pups passed by during her photo shoot.

FINAL UPDATE: 11/21/13 - Autumn was adopted and has gone to her forever home! Her patience paid off and she will have the life she deserves.
UPDATE: 11/18/13 - Autumn has settled into her new foster home. Foster mom, Nicole, says that she's enjoying exploring her new surroundings, eating well and has a laid back easy going personality.
UPDATE: 11/12/13 - Her name is Autumn! She will be leaving the shelter very soon and recovering in a loving foster home. Once she's healthy again, Autumn will be available to adopt from St. Francis Animal Protection Society
This darling three year old girl has lived in a stainless steel cage at the San Jose shelter for the last four months in the sick ward.
She must think she has been forgotten. Her only human contact is when the shelter staff brings her food and water or cleans her litter box. She has no access to the wonderful shelter cat volunteers. No playtime with the feather toy. No loving pets or kind words. She has no name and no home.
Why is she living this bleak existence? She has an upper respiratory infection which is a common kitty cold. Cats under stress in a scary shelter environment often become ill. We've seen it time and time again: once they get into a caring and comfy home, they recover fast!
Unfortunately, this sweetheart's time is running out. She needs to find a temporary or permanent home immediately so she can recover and get on with her life.
Want to show her that she has not been forgotten? Give her a temporary or permanent home! Fill out our foster application here

And, she needs a name! Got any suggestions?
UPDATE: 11/1/2013 - Daisy was rescued today! She's on her way to recovery and is safe. Darlin' Daisy
We are naming this little cutie Daisy! She is a two year old Beagle and Dachshund mix.
She was abandoned in the middle of the night at the front door of the San Jose shelter. Daisy is a cuddle bug and likes to climb in your lap. She is a shelter staff favorite because of her wonderful disposition. Even though she's not so sure of the camera, we were able to get some smiles out of her.
Although she moves around pretty well, her pelvis is fractured so she is not available to adopt. Daisy also has a conditioned called 'cherry eye' which will need to be repaired.
Unfortunately Daisy is at risk for euthanasia because the shelter is full. Can you help save her by giving her a temporary or permanent home where she can heal? Her medical expenses will be covered by a sponsoring rescue organization. All Daisy needs from you is love and a quiet place to mend.

UPDATE: 10/29/2013 - These three little Chi's were rescued! They are now safe.
Three little Chi siblings at the San Jose shelter need your help!
The two brothers and one sister were being sold out of a shopping cart by a drunken homeless man. A good Samaritan concerned about their well being gave the man money and brought them to San Jose Animal Care Center.
Unfortunately these four month olds have demodectic mange which is not contagious but they are not available to adopt. Some medicated baths over time will have these guys ready for their forever home!
We are searching for a sponsoring rescue group who can save these tiny 3 to 4 lb puppies. They are a bit shy and scared in the shelter but are easily handled and appreciate the lap of a volunteer.
San Jose Animal Advocates can provide transport if needed. Please contact us for more information at firstname.lastname@example.org. Please help save this young family!
UPDATE: 9/22/13 - We are pleased to share that our darling Rosie is doing very well in her foster home!
UPDATE: 9/19/13 - Rosie's life is about to get a whole lot better. She has a foster home and will be leaving the shelter soon. Today was a good day for her and her puppy. Roscoe was adopted this afternoon. Save Rosie!
Rosie* has had a hard life. Abused, neglected, starved and now a few days away from scheduled euthanasia. She has been at the San Jose shelter since the end of August and her time is almost up. She does not qualify for adoption due to a mild heart murmur. Rosie misses her puppy, Roscoe
She has been miserably failed by her humans. While she is sad, she remains sweet. She is a boxer mix about four years young. She is good with other dogs, just a little submissive. Rosie deserves a loving, patient home so she can regain her trust in people, put on some weight and begin to flourish.You can help us save this innocent soul by giving her a temporary or permanent home. Fill out our foster application here. If you can not foster her, you can help by sharing her story.
The final indignity for this girl is that she's separated from her puppy. Roscoe made it to adoptions and is waiting for his forever home. You can check out Roscoe here. Rosie was not so lucky.
*We have named her Rosie - hoping that is what her future will be.
UPDATE - 9/19/13: Look who is luxuriating in her foster home after finishing dinner. It's Miss Maggie Mae!
Isn't it great to see her in a home and not in that ugly stainless steel cage?
UPDATE - 9/15/13: Maggie won't be alone much longer. She's got a foster home; Maggie will say 'Sayonara!' to the shelter very soon. Stay tuned for updates on when she will be available to adopt.
Maggie Mae is.
She is sixteen years old and now stuck in a steel cage at the San Jose shelter. Her owner had to give her up because her rental does not allow pets.
So, Maggie Mae is missing a couple of teeth. The shelter feels that makes her unadoptable and gave her a deadline. We think she is a healthy girl and acts younger than sixteen!
Maggie Mae is a large, diluted tortoise shell kitty who rubs up against her cage to get closer to you. She makes 'happy feet' and only wants to be loved on. Maggie is so super sweet, she's even good around toddlers: a rare trait for a cat!
The shelter and her owner seemed to have given up on her! Help us save Maggie Mae today by giving her a temporary or permanent home. Fill out our foster application here. Email us with questions at email@example.com.
Miss Maggie Mae's gotta whole lotta love left to give!
