Animal Arcata
Helen Tozer and Mara Segal



Conan is an orange tabby domestic shorthair. He is ten years old and has been neutered. He arrived at the shelter on July 5.

Shelter staff said the following about him, “Conan is loving and vivacious. He will enchant you with his friendliness. He has a brilliant marbled orange coat and a good-natured personality.” His ID number is A063934.

Wiggles is a two-year-old Cane Corso mix. Her gorgeous coat and stature catch your eye, while her upbeat personality captures your heart.

This big girl is a bit rambunctious when she plays, but also enjoys quality cuddling time. She has attended several sessions of dog class. She will appreciate an owner that will help her further her obedience training.



Wiggles is spayed, micro-chipped and up to date on vaccinations. She has been at the shelter since May 3 and her ID number is A063291.

Hero, a miniature macaw, is up for adoption. He has been living at Companion Animal Foundation since mid-May in hopes that his guardian of 18 years would find a home and be able to keep him.

Hero has many favorite staff, volunteers and customers who frequent CAF and he can often be seen shoulder surfing! He loves a wide variety of people food as well.

He can bite, but makes it pretty obvious if he doesn’t like you!  A travel cage and his cage go with him.  Adoption fee applies, so let us know what you would like to donate to CAF.

CAF is also always looking for foster families for adoptable animals.

For more information on Hero the macaw, becoming a foster and pet adoptions, please visit, drop by the Companion Animal Foundation Thrift Store at 88 Sunny Brae Center or call (707) 826-PETS (7387).
