Lua Bella

Lua Bella's mother was discovered living on the streets of Tijuana while pregnant. After being rescued, she was brought to California where she gave birth to her puppies. When they were old enough to be adopted, we met Lua Bella and welcomed her into our home. She is the most affectionate dog we've ever had, but she will definitely be the last puppy we ever adopt. She was extremely destructive during her first two years of life.

Gracie Mae

Gracie Mae was living with her previous family, but regrettably, they were unable to continue caring for her. At the age of two, she ended up in a San Bernardino shelter. After our beloved Suzie Flower passed away in 2000, we were ready to bring another furbaby into our home. The moment we met Gracie Mae, we instantly fell in love with her, and she has been a wonderful addition to our family. She has a calm demeanor and craves affection, until it's time for some energetic zoomies, and then she transforms into a playful and silly girl.

Baxter is our current foster pup and is such a good boy. This super cute, silly, bouncy, sometimes non-trusting but very loving pup has had such a tough life. From 2+ years of being abused, then confiscated and sent to a very high kill shelter, then being rescued by Giselles Rescue and Sanctuary but having the foster back out at the last minute so he had to go into long term boarding, and then finally finding our home. Joining our family has given this sweet boy a stable place to live with sisters who show him how to be brave and live his best life. Interested in adopting him? Reach out to me for a meet and greet.

Red Ear Slider Turtle


After many camping trips to the Sierra Mountains, I wanted to bring the comfort of water to my backyard. So in 2006, we decided to add a koi pond. After only a few days, we felt it needed a few more occupants. Scooby certainly has made our pond her own and is our longest pond resident. She's now the matriarch. The boys named her because at the time, Scooby Doo was a favorite television show.

Spring is the time for turtle egg laying. I always dig them up because well, we just don't need anymore Red Ear Sliders in the world. But I missed this little guy one year, so that's where he got his name. Born 2018.

When a neighbor felt their beloved pet had outgrown her aquarium, they reached out to me to see if I had room in our pond for one more. How could I say no to this pretty girl. She's been with us since 2019.

Q was another turtle that had outgrown her aquarium and came to live with us. Did you know that a full grown Red Ear Slider needs a 70+ gallon aquarium but a pond is ideal? Joined our family in 2022.

Red Ear Slider Turtle


Hazel was found in a bucket in a local Home Depot parking lot by a good samaritan who reached out to ask if I'd take her. We named her Hazel because her shell was so light when she was rescued due to lack of sunlight. Joined our family 2022.

Red Ear Slider Turtle


Once upon a time, a little boy was given two small turtles. But soon those little turtles outgrew their tank, so the little boy's mom went in search of a new home for them. Luckily I had room in my pond for one more female turtle. And now the little boy and his mom occasionally come for a visit with Tails. Tails joined us in 2023.

My backyard pond also contains numerous koi, goldfish, and plecostomus along with my turtles. They all live happily together and it's one of my favorite places to sit while having a nice glass of wine to relax and entertain guest.
