Small Animals

Due to the recommendation from the CDC and local government concerning COVID-19, our building will remain closed until further notice.  Adoptions will still take place via curbside adoption. 
SFAHS places thousands of animals in new, loving homes every year, and the pets you see here are waiting for their own happy endings. Listings are updated in real-time, Monday-Friday, as animals become available or find new homes. We invite you to visit the SFAHS adoption center so that we can help you find your new best friend. Once pre-screened you'll have access to visit with all of our adoptable animals!

I've been at the shelter for a few months now waiting for my home, and in that time I've made very good friends with the staff here. I'm very playful and always on the move, but once we're friends, I like to sit and kiss your fingers. I am also a very good acrobat! You can often find me dangling from the top of my cage or crawling up and down the sides. I have been around other rats before and I've done extremely well with them! It would be nice if I went home with a friend or two as rats are very social animals! Will you give me a chance to be your very best friend?||35|1-12258-35.jpg||9|1-12258-9.jpg||10|1-12258-10.jpg||

I'm a 2-month-old Mini Rex/Lop mix. I'm a very curious little guy and I love to explore! I'm not a huge fan of being handled a whole lot. I sometimes like getting pets and cuddles, but most of the time I want to just run and play, like most babies! I startle very easily, loud noises and fast movements scare me. For these reasons, it's best I go to a home with kids 9+, as I am also very fragile and should not be picked up a lot. I am only 2 months old so you will basically be raising me, so it's best I go to an experienced rabbit owner who understands typical rabbit behavior. Understand I am very young still and have not experienced a lot of new things, and unfamiliar things can scare me at first! If you have never owned a rabbit under 1 year old, please do some research as our diet and care is very different from an adult! Rabbits are a 10-12 year commitment, so be sure you're ready to dedicate that time to me. I would love an owner that will be patient with me and spend plenty of time with me, even if you're just sitting in the room with me. It's best to let me come to you when I'm ready for attention, chasing me around will only scare me and can result in injury. I am a lovable little guy, although shy. I'm ready to binky right into your heart, will you be my forever home?||35|1-12286-35.jpg||9|1-12286-9.jpg||

I also like to hop on top of anything I am able to whether it's boxes, hideouts, or a cage that has a blanket on top, so make sure there aren't any surfaces that are too high up in my area so I don't hurt myself.

I'm a fun-loving and social rat who enjoys spending quality time with his people and exploring all the wonders of the world! Most rats are nocturnal and would rather be playing in the evening or early morning, but not me! I am usually awake or very lightly snapping throughout the day so that I can jump up at any time to hang out with you. Like most rats, I don't have the best vision, so sometimes I do mistake fingers for food, but I'm usually very good about keeping my teeth to myself! I'm also quite comfortable being handled, and I do love when I get plenty of attention, so I should do well with kids of all ages as long as they know to handle me properly. I have been around other rats before and didn't always do the best, so it would be good for me to be the only rat in my home. Please do plenty of research on rat care and our needs before adopting me. Will you be mine forever?||35|1-12470-35.jpg||9|1-12470-9.jpg||10|1-12470-10.jpg||

I am a little diva who enjoys the quieter life and is more on the laid backside. I can be quite shy when it comes to new people, so please give me time to get used to you! I am a rabbit who is not very happy when I am in a cage and was used to being in a playpen where I could play and flop around in my previous home, so it would be best if I could be in a large playpen again. I am not a huge fan of being held, but I do like to be pet, and cheek rubs are my favorite. Once I get used to people, I am a big sweetheart, so I should do well with kids 5+, as long as they understand to let me have my space.

I am a fuzzy little guy who's a mix of Lionhead, Himalayan, and mischief! I came to the shelter without a lot of information, so staff isn't sure exactly how old I am, but they think I may still be a young man. With that being said, I sure act young! I'm always busy exploring and zooming around, though I'll run over to greet you with a chin rub if I see you. I am very mischievous, and can often be found trying to get into things that aren't bunny-safe, and I don't like being told no! I can have a bit of an attitude, and even though I'm small, I have a mighty kick, so I should do well with kids ages 7+ that understand that I'm a rabbit who would prefer to be running around, not cuddled. On the few occasions I'm sitting still, I love to have my fur brushed and be talked to. I'm a rabbit that would not do well in a cage, and should have either a playpen or a bunny-proof room to run in, as I get pent up energy and take it out in naughty ways. For these reasons, I should go home with someone who has had rabbits before and knows how to work with our stubbornness. I'm a lot of attitude and love all in one little bunny! Will you be that forever family that I need?||35|1-12489-35.jpg||9|1-12489-9.jpg||10|1-12489-10.jpg||

As you can see, I'm a big boy, even for a guinea pig! I'm like most piggies, I like to talk and explore, and then fall asleep on a soft blanket on your lap. Since I'm quite heavy, I will need an owner who is willing to help me exercise and diet so I can stay in shape! I can be quite the goofball at times! Sometimes I'll lay my head dramatically against the side of the cage and get lost in my own thoughts, and other times I will be constantly on the move, so be ready for anything with me! I have lived with other guinea pigs before and I did not like them, so I would love to be the only piggy in your life! Like most piggies, I have a grease gland, but mine is a little overactive, so I will need a weekly coconut oil treatment and a bath to keep my fur from matting too much! Please make sure you'll be able to keep my nails trimmed as well and let me have plenty of Timothy hay! I know I'm a little more work than most piggies, but I promise I am worth it!

I'm a cute little Dutch rabbit that is about 4 months old! I am fairly social, I will come up and greet you when opening my cage. I love pets and affectionate, I'm do well with being handled and don't fuss too much about being picked up. Even though I seem pretty comfortable with it, it's important to remember rabbits never enjoy being picked up and feel safest with all 4 paws on the floor, so there may be times I'm not so happy with it. It's best I go to a home with kids 5+ for this reason, I am very small and fragile. For my age, it is important you do some research on diet and care for rabbits under 7 months of age as our diets are a little different compared to an adult. Rabbits have a 10-12 year life span, so be sure you're ready to make that commitment to me.

I'm an energetic young guy who came to the shelter because my owners were allergic to me. I am a lop/Lionhead mix, which explains my floppy ears and my funny hair. I am a rabbit that will need weekly brushing to keep me looking fabulous! Being about 9 months old, I am definitely in that teenage stage where all I want to do is explore and show a little bit of attitude. I don't really like to be held and carried around, but I sure love to run around your feet and chase you! As long as kids know that I'm more on the independent side and know how to safely interact with me, I should do well with kids of all ages. I have been around another bunny before, and we didn't get along so well, so I may like other bunnies, I may not, it just really depends! I do love bananas, and I can be a little picky on what snacks I like at times. Please make sure you'll be able to keep my fur brushed and nails trimmed!

I'm very comfortable being handled, and I love to lay on your chest and rest my head on your shoulder. I should do well with kids of all ages as long as they understand how to properly hold me. I have been around another male rabbit before and we did not get along, so please understand that I may have to be the only rabbit in your home. I am a big boy, so having an area to run in daily would really help me keep in shape so I can spend many, many years with you. I do love snacks though, and I haven't found any I don't like yet!

I am quite curious about everything, so please make sure we have plenty of rat-safe toys and puzzles that can keep us occupied. I came to the shelter with my sister Anna, and it is required we go home together, as we've been together all of our lives.
