Kitty is Pet of the Week!

Kitty, May 20 Pet of the Week

He-e-e-ere, Kitty! Her family moved across the country and took everyone but Kitty. They left this sweet lap cat at the shelter to her fate. Kitty is an affectionate indoor 10-year-old, good with kids and dogs, and weighing in at a whopping 17 pounds! Because she’s a senior, her adoption fee will be only $20. She’ll need lots of love, affection and likely a weight-loss cat diet. Meet Kitty at the Companion Animal Village at 7700 East Spring St., (562) 570-PETS. Ask for ID#A589611.

Bella is Pet of the Week!

Bella, May 11 Pet of the Week

La vida é bella!” would be the cry of our beautiful Bella if she were gifted with speech. To this vivacious, playful girl, life is beautiful—she’s spunky and loves to play. She’s learning her manners along with a lot of tricks—she loves learning those as well. What would be even more beautiful for this 2 ½-year-old pittie would be a loving human who shares her joy of life—she was surrendered to the shelter when her previous owner could no longer keep her, and she so appreciates human company. Want to share a beautiful life with a beautiful doggie? Then meet Bella at the City of Long Beach Animal Care Services on the shelter side of the P.D. Pitchford Animal Village, 7700 E. Spring St., Long Beach, (562) 570-PETS. Ask for ID#A587192.

Mr. Sunday is Pet of the Week!

unnamed

Mr. Sunday is a sweet, playful pit bull/German shepherd mix, about 8 years old. Mr. Sunday was found on the street, wearing a dirty worn-out collar that had his name on it, but that’s all we knew about him, and no one came to claim him. Because we consider him a senior, his adoption fee is only $20! If he gets the home he deserves, Mr.Sunday will never be the same—and we mean that in the best possible way! Meet him on the shelter side of the Companion Animal Village at 7700 East Spring St., (562) 570-PETS. Ask for ID#A585708.

Cleo is Pet of the Week!

unnamed (2)

Cleo will come pattering (sorry—we couldn’t resist it) out from her little barge as soon as she senses the security of a person willing to be patient and kind. So often, pets get left at our shelter without knowing what the deal is and why they aren’t in their safe places anymore—if they had one. Cleo’s a royal seal-point Siamese who’s about 2 years old and has plenty of good years to share with the right people. Meet her at the Companion Animal Village at 7700 East Spring St., (562) 570-PETS. Ask for ID#A573245.
