“When you think you can make it on your own
You think you're bulletproof
But what you really are
Is a big man in a little suit” – Elton John

Meet Big Man! SF Bay Area of CA

Big Man is a ~ 6 yr old, 6 lb uhhhhhhh Shih Tzu and Terrier Mix? (We are winging it – if anyone wants to send us the $60 to do a Wisdom Panel, please do so through our donation links and we will run one)

He joins us from @Antioch Animal Services

He is neutered, microchipped, vaccinated and free of parasites. He has had labwork that shows he is healthy and is scheduled to have a dental cleaning in the next month or so.

He is on one very cheap medication for arthritis (around $2/month total per GoodRx – yes, TWO dollars) and will come with a several month supply and a prescription to take to the pharmacy of your choice with refills good for one year at your cost.

(Many of our senior dogs are on arthritis meds because just like people over the age of 40 often have aches and pains, so do dogs. "Not treating" is not the same as "not needing" for all of the people who constantly ask us why our dogs are on arthritis meds when many other shelter/rescue dogs are not.)

His foster mom says this about him

“Big Man is a sweet little guy but a little apprehensive. I suspect he was someone’s pampered pooch in his previous life and now he is confused and a little scared. He seems like one of those dogs who will really come out of his shell once he is healthy and feels safe and then will be one of those VELCRO dogs.

He does not like being picked up but loves being held. I think being picked up might be a little painful for him right now since he was just recently neutered.

He likes his crate for comfort but does not like sleeping in it. This was the only time he barked. He would rather cuddle in the bed next you but will settle for sleeping on a pillow on the floor next to your bed. He slept through the night just fine.

He has been socialized well around other animals and is completely comfortable around my dog and old, cranky lady cat.

He loves wet food but isn’t the fondest of kibble. He will eat it if it is mixed with some wet food. He takes his medicine very easily with just a small dab of cream cheese. He did not show any interest in my dog’s favorite treats, blueberries and watermelon.

He does not appear to be house trained but that could be due to us not figuring out his signals yet. He is definitely not a fan of the belly bands though.

He did amazing in the car. He does great on a leash and LOVES to go for walks but he is not a distance walker – just short ones.
He went up our stairs like a pro but didn’t know how to get back down. He’s smart though, we guided him down step by step and he did the last few without any coaxing. He hasn’t shown any interest in playing with toys.

He has not been tested around kids but due to his small size, medical issues, and timid nature, he would do better around kids who do not rough house and could give him his space. We do not have hard rules on ages but we will guesstimate that he would do best with kids 8+ who are more ‘tea party’ than ‘superhero’

Big Man is available for local to us foster-to-adopt for the next month (starting 7/10/2021) while he is awaiting his dental and healing from his neuter. After that, he will be available to people willing to come to us to adopt for one more month (through 9/10/2021) and if he is still not adopted at that time, we will consider out of area transports (major US airports and adopters willing to meet standby flights)

If you would like to adopt please send a THOROUGH email that mentions DETAILS FROM THIS BIO to [email protected]

If you cannot adopt, but would like to make a tax-deductible (EIN 45-4103375) towards this pet's care please do so on this post (if this is an option) or by one of these

Our #petoftheweek is Rocketman. There is no adoption fee for Pet of the Week to approved homes.

Please share so Rocketman can find his forever home!

Rocketman is a 10lb toy poodle mix around 12 years young and seeking a compassionate unicorn adopter.

He is vaccinated, microchipped, free of parasites and labwork shows he is overall healthy. He takes two medications for arthritis (approx $6/month).

Rocketman doesn't have great vision or hearing due to age. He wanders around his own little world and generally just grumbles a bit.

He's ok with dogs after initial grumbles and likely would be the same with cats. If there are children in the home, they should be gentle and/or older.

To inquire about adopting Rocketman, please send an email to [email protected].

To make a tax-deductible donation towards his care, please visit www.paypal.me/UOH or Venmo @umbrellaof-hoperescue

Happy Five Dollar Friday!

We take in A LOT of animals that have heart issues. Some being a heart murmur, heart disease or heart worms. Some have enlarged hearts, because they have so much love to give with nobody to give it to ( OK we know this is not medically accurate, but just go with it 😊 ) . Some come with broken hearts 💔, and it’s our job to put the pieces back in place by showing them what it feels like to be loved and cared for again.

Regardless of the reason, we take in as many as we can and do what we can medically🩺⚕️, physically and emotionally 🫂 for them to help heal their hearts and give their love somewhere to go.

This #fivedollarfriday 💜, we are asking for those that are able to make a donation🎁 to help us continue to take in more animals like the ones pictured 🐕‍🦺🐕🐩🐶🐈😺🐆🐅, who all came into our rescue with different heart issues of their own. Everyone pictured has been adopted 🙏

To see the animals who are currently available for adoption please visit our website at www.beourpet.org.php

General information

Umbrella of Hope is a non-profit animal welfare group and relies on donations, grants, public support and community volunteers. We receive NO government funding. We were founded to and we focus on rescuing senior, special needs, shy, plain and medically needy dogs and cats from our local animal shelters. We are located in the San Francisco East Bay Area. We do not have a shelter and all of our animals reside in local foster homes while they await adoption. We can only save as many as we have volunteer foster homes! Umbrella of Hope collaborates with other rescue groups and animal shelters to help find adoptable animals homes. We offer rebates after completion of obedience classes up to $100. Also ask us about our seniors for seniors program, where we adopt animals 5 years or older to people 55+ for a minimum $5 donation. Adoptions to discharged/retired US Military Veterans are ALWAYS FREE.

He's an older pup who recently celebrated his one year anniversary of adopting us! Chester loves the holidays...just not walking in the rain.
please help us find Harpie. she is a small white Maltipoo. call (925)3222960
This was my fabulous little buddy for 8 great years! When we got him, (8 years ago), he was a rescue that had been left outside for the first 7 years of his life and had lost all his hair. He was only about 5 pounds when my husband and I got him but he filled out to 7-8 lbs in a short bit of time! When we got him he wasn’t used to being pet or scratched or even know how to play AND he was afraid of men. But with a lot of time and patience, and help from a little dog-sister, he blossomed! The little guy even started “zooming” in his later years. He was best friends with my husband, he will always be a part of our family! If there is another little one out there that needs some time and patience to learn what it truly means to be family, I would be honored to do it all over again, both for myself and in memory of my best friend! I also hope this post may encourage others to consider looking around and seeing if there’s a pet in need near you. My husband and I are in Northern California outside of Sacramento. You can reach me through this post. Thank you and give a dog a hug!

Pipsqueak has arrived in San Antonio to his new forever home!!!!!!! Fitting right in🥰🥰🥰. Thank you UOH, Natalie and Tish for making this happen!!!!!
My shadow, my Cali girl, the sweetest soul named Sage crossed over the rainbow bridge today. She was a hospice dog with breast cancer from the California rescue Umbrella of Hope. We decided to be her new family even though it wouldn't be as long as we would have wanted. Sage was flown into Austin where Ron and I were waiting. She immediately fit in sleeping on the console on the way home on her blankets. Within a few days she fiercely defended our home against strangers and family 😂. She owned this place. My other shadow Ellie didn't like it but I told Ellie Sage was only here until her illness made it her time to cross the bridge. Maybe Elle dog even understood, i don't know but she and Juno showed concern for her more than normal the last few days. Our hearts are once again ripped to shreds as it was when Hank the tank left us 3 months ago. But I will tell you this will not stop us from possibly giving another older dog, hospice dog, a chance at love and comfort no matter how short their time maybe. Sage was with us a short 6 mos. but we were blessed during that time and now only take comfort knowing we selflessly let her go easing her pain. Until we meet again Sager.......💔🐕🌈
Got my shirt in the mail today, thank you!!!
This is my grand daughter's and husband's rescue dog with their son from newborn on. Monty was rescued from the San Antonio City shelter before my great grandson was born. He is in LOVE with his lil boy human.🥰

!!FOUND IN RICHMOND, CA!! -Male, Black and Tan Dachshund/Chihuahua (??) mix with a white patch on his chest was found on Emeric Ave. and Hayes St. in Richmond, CA on 11/24/19 at around 8pm. -He is NOT neutered, has NO chip, and was NOT wearing any collar or ID tags! He does however have a few fleas, some small open wounds on his lower back, and he’s been scratching/licking his belly, feet, and private areas quite a bit. -I have contacted or posted on Petfinder, Jelleys Dog Rescue, and CCAS (local shelter where he was found) and I also signed up for Nextdoor but apparently I have to wait for a "confirmation letter" to arrive in my mailbox. I have filled out a found pet report which is listed in the lost dog database on the official Contra Costa Animal Services website! -My partner Samuel and I have been trying to get ahold of as many shelters and rescue groups (online groups as well) in the surrounding areas and we are doing everything we can to try to find this pup’s previous owners! -He will be taken to a no-kill shelter with a good re-homing rate on Wednesday morning (11/27) if no one has contacted us or we have not come across his owners by then. You can direct message either of us on Facebook (or you can email Rheaven at: [email protected]) if you have any leads or helpful information!
