Welcome once again to the once-a-month animal adoption segment, "First of the Mutt." Ronnie's Awesome List is proud to partner with various rescue organizations around the Bay Area to feature adorable, adoptable, family-friendly animals find their forever home and help your family find a new best friend and fall madly in love.

Kenny is a VERY special nine-year-old dog. He is friendly and silly, thinks people are the best thing ever (get ready for belly rubs!), loves to play with toys, and is happy to meet all the dogs he sees. Kenny arrived very underweight and in need of medical care; he now deserves to be loved and pampered for the rest of his life. He is looking for an active family who will include him in all of their activities. Kenny is a love bug of a dog and surprisingly energetic for his age.

Cute little Pom Pom is busy, curious, and easy to pet and pick up. She’s more into exploring and running around than hanging out with people, but she did enjoy meeting some of the children in our summer camp. We think she would be fine for most families who would enjoy having an active companion. She will require combing and brushing on a weekly basis to keep her long, soft fur free from painful mats.

This 1-year-old beauty is Mochiko! People are sure to turn their heads when she’s with you! Mochiko really likes people and loves giving kisses. She’s a smart girl who knows some tricks and, with your help, can learn even more! She can get frustrated seeing other dogs while on-leash, so she’s looking for a neighborhood with low dog traffic. Come by and get your sweet tooth satisfied with Mochiko!

Meet Lizzie, a 2-year-old orange tabby girl! She’s new to shelter life and is taking it slow, preferring to stay in her warm cubby for now. But give her a few gentle rubs and she’ll show you just how affectionate she can be! She may also reveal a little purr. Get this girl into a relaxing home and she’ll be your best friend forever!

Hi, I'm Barbie!

I am an athletic and friendly adolescent that loves going on long walks, even jogs! I love my toys and playing fetch! I have legs for days, even though I am small I love to show off how high I can bounce! I am a very smart girl and would love someone to continue fun training games with me, I pick up on things very quickly! I am 10 months old.

Hi, we're Molly (Black) & Tonks (Black/White)!

Everything's cuter in black and white! If you're looking to add some fun, silly pals to your family, we just might be the kitties for you! Keep the toys, treats, and snuggles coming and we'll stick right by your side! Come meet us today! We are still quite young, so we need to stay indoors for at least one year! Even better is that we stay indoors our whole lives so we can stay safe and sound! We are 2 months old.
