Bella, a 3-year-old German shepherd-border collie mix, is a lively family dog. She should be the only dog in the household, and is best with children age 8 and older, according to Animal Rescue of Tracy volunteers. She is very energetic and would happily play fetch and run alongside a cyclist or runner each day. Herding classes might also be a good fit for Bella. The rescue group will provide a month of obedience training for the family that adopts her. Animal Rescue of Tracy is a nonprofit, all-volunteer organization that has pet adoption fairs for dogs and cats from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. Saturdays and noon to 4 p.m. Sundays in the Macy’s wing of the West Valley Mall, 3200 Naglee Road. Members will also make arrangements to show animals in rescue during the week. For information: 642-4324 or


East of Eden animal rescue volunteers are looking for a home for Raley, a 10-week-old kitten, who was found meowing in the shrubs outside a local pet supply store. Her adoption fee is $100, which includes the cost of spaying, vaccinations, deworming and an identification microchip. Raley will be at Petco, 2888 Grant Line Road, from noon to 3 p.m. Saturday, Jan. 25, with East of Eden volunteers and other adoptable animals. For information, call 815-5186 or visit

Mickey, a 4-year-old neutered Siamese mix, is at the Tracy Animal Shelter and needs a home.

The shelter, 370 Arbor Road, is open from noon to 5:30 p.m. Tuesday through Saturday. For information: 831-6364 or “City of Tracy Animal Services” on Facebook.
