Haro, Aug. 27th Pet of the Week!

Haro is a good boy who desperately needs out of the shelter and into a home. This big, hefty 3-year-old brown tabby came to our shelter when his owner passed away, and he’s understandably depressed and of dour disposition. Behind those green eyes and inside that hefty body is one heck of a great guy. Can you be the one who’ll bring it out in him? Because the shelter is closed to the public, adoption appointments are conducted through email, so contact AnimalRescue@longbeach.gov to meet them. Ask for ID#A646034.

(This rescue encouraged by the usual suspects.)
