Animals in Permanent Foster Care

Since SARG is a no-kill organization, and these animals have been with us for a long time, we would appreciate contributions for their continuing care to cover medications and special foods. They are mostly senior animals who have been unable to find forever homes because of age and/or health conditions.

Katie is a 9-year-old calico kitty who is declawed on her front paws. Unlike some calicos, who can have a bit of an attitude, Katie is very sweet and affectionate and loves to be petted and held. She weighs a bit over 9 pounds and has a very soft, strikingly colorful coat. She probably would be most happy as an only kitty. She is now in a long-term foster home where she is very much loved.

Mimi is a black "special needs" kitty -- she was born feral with two litter mates in June, 2009. We believe that these kittens have Siamese somewhere in their lineage. Her litter mates were less feral in behavior, and have been adopted. Mimi lives in a long-term foster home with other cats and plays and gets along well with them. She loves to cuddle in bed with people at night, and at that time loves to be petted. During other times, Mimi will let people get only so close, although she'll play with people who have interactive toys.

Paco was a senior Chihuahuas whose owner turned him and his friend Sassy in because he could no longer care for them. They were closely bonded with each other, and we placed them in a permanent foster home to keep them together. Sweet Paco was about 16 when he died January 8, 2019. Thanks to Paco's and Sassy's foster family for making their remaining senior years happy ones.

Belle was a big, beautiful silver-gray tuxedo cat, who was 16 years old when she died as a result of throat cancer in February, 2019. She was a sweet-natured cat who liked to sit on the couch beside her human companion. Thanks and condolences to her foster family who loved her dearly.



Zoe passed away on December 22, 2018, having reached the point that the tumors throughout her body caused a rapid decline in her quality of life. SARG is thankful to her foster mom, who made sure that she had the best of care and enjoyed her last days as much as possible, and who was with her to the end.

Daisy's heart condition worsened and she crossed the Rainbow Bridge in October, 2018. SARG is so grateful to her foster family for the love and care that Daisy received to the end of her life.



Ella was adopted from SARG in 2006, and she returned to us in 2014 when her adopter had to move and was not able to find a place that would allow a pet. She returned to finish out her life with her original, loving foster mom. Ella died in March, 2018. Thanks to her foster mom for the years of care she gave to Ella, who was named for her own granddaughter.


Susie Q

Sweet Susie Q passed away on September 23, 2017. She is very much missed by all of us in SARG and especially by her foster mom, who gave her great love and care for several years, and who wrote the following poem in Susie's honor:

"I'm a Foster Dog named SuzyQ, and sometimes called Suzy-Girl.
But, no one wanted to adopt me, or give me a whirl.
So, to all those 2-legged critters that didn't like to hear me bark,
I have some news for you --
I'm a dog -- dogs bark -- it's what we do!!!
So when I was barking, it was because I wanted some attention from YOU.
AND what have you missed since September of 2009?
.... As told by Foster A. Pett, a very good friend of mine! "
