Riley has recently been diagnosed with lymphoma cancer and now needs a warm home and loving environment more than ever. Riley must be the only pet in an adult-only home and in a single family house so as to avoid close quarters with neighborโ€™s pets. He will probably take some time to bond again, but when he does, his loyalty is the real deal.

As a foster family, AALOC will pay for all Rileys vet bills and medications. The team at AALOC will also be your support group for any questions or concerns you may have about Rileys care. You just need to provide Riley a safe and warm home, and the love and care he so desperately needs.

Rileys story begins several years ago: It took several hours before anyone could corral Riley: he just could not believe his owner would abandon him behind AALOC. Riley just kept howling mournfully and would not respond to people who tried to get him to come towards him. He kept looking for his owner to come back for him - but they never did. Animal Control picked him up instead. No one claimed him, no one cared, except for one of our volunteers who made arrangements to have Riley come to AALOC.

DNA testing reports that Riley is a Husky/American Staffordshire terrier mix and he weighs in at about 67 pounds. In general Huskies are intelligent, alert, outgoing, friendly and energetic. Typical traits of a Staffordshire terrier include tenacity, devotion, loyalty, attentiveness and courage. We think Riley demonstrates all of the above!

Riley is a handsome, particularly smart dog that loves to play, go for walks, and meet new people. He is also a strong, quick dog that needs regular exercise of both his mind and body. Riley has been through special obedience training but still needs to be fostered by an experienced dog owner willing to provide the attention and patience Riley will need. Discipline and exercise, in conjunction with affection, is a must. 

If you feel you can provide the guidance and care Riley needs, please submit an application to foster Riley. Once your application is reviewed and approved we will contact you to make an appointment to visit us at AALOC to meet Riley during visiting hours (10am to 3pm daily) and get to know him a bit. Or for more information regarding our foster program please call us at (714) 893-4393.

FindpetTM is a Participating Pet Recovery Service Registry for the AAHA Universal Pet Microchip Lookup Tool. AAHA provides an internet-based application that enables veterinarians, humane organizations, pet owners or other persons to search various Pet Recovery Service registries and identify those registries on which a particular microchip is registered. AAHA is not affiliated or involved with any specific microchip registry and has no relationship, financial or otherwise, with this Participating Pet Recovery Service Registry ("Registry"). This Registry has given AAHA permission to search the Registry's database in order to assist pet owners in being reunited with their pets. AAHA does not maintain a database of microchips of its own. It only links to registries such as this one. The AAHA Universal Microchip Lookup Tool only searches the databases of companies that elect to participate in the program.
