A Senior and A Pup… UPDATE!

Say Hello to Ms. Gretel and Fergus!


Ms. Gretel loves to help make beds

Ms. Gretel is 12 years of age and acts like she is TWO!  Ms. Gretel came into one of San Diego’s local shelters as a stray.  She loves humans and is obsessed with cats.  A great snuggler at night, you would never know Ms. Gretel is 12 years of age!



Fergus and His New Loving Family!

Originally from North Eastern Arizona, our friends at Good Dog Rez Q initially secured Fergus’ safety as he was abandoned in a Canyon.  Now a Southern California Boy, Fergus is going to be Sunshine Spoiled for sure!  CONGRATULATIONS FERGUS & FAMILY!

PS-Ms. Gretel is still looking for a Home!




Emma & Bevan-SENIOR STARS!

Ferdinand’s Familia & Rescue specializes in Disabled, Old and Behavior-issue Animal Relations.

All adoptions require a home visit.  This is not just for the animal, but for the human too!  Most of the time the Adoptions work out, but every once in awhile a baby will come back to the rescue.  The animals are secure and safe until they find that perfect home.

These 2 Senior Stars are looking for homes!  Both are special needs!  If you would like to meet Emma or Bevan, please send us a message or email Janice@ferdinandsfamilia.org.  THANK YOU!

Waiting for a loving, permanent home.

It’s Cat & Kitten Season!

Ferdinand’s Familia & Rescue has a couple of cats that were kittens from last season still waiting for a home.

When you adopt a cat from Ferdinand’s Familia & Rescue your kindness opens the door for our fosters and homebase to bring in abandoned and neglected kittens this Season.

Please send us a message if you would like to meet one of our cats.
