Teach Children about the Importance of Their Mental Health and the Health of Those Around Them!

Unraveling Rose by author Brian Wray

A cuddly stuffed rabbit named Rose helps families understand obsessive thoughts and behaviors in children

Rose is a stuffed bunny who loves having fun with the little boy she lives with, until she discovers a loose thread dangling from her arm, and it’s all she can think about. The story will help parents and teachers talk to children about what to do with obsessive thoughts, and shares a positive outcome for a complicated issue. As someone who works with children at my other job, I would highly recommend this book to parents of younger children. Find this book and many other great books here.

Tasha, Nov. 12th Pet of the Week!

Tasha #A649275 is our shelter’s prima ballerina! We call her that because she was born with two front paws in the first position! And we love her for it! Far from being focused solely on the dance, Tasha is people focused; she’s kind, gentle, warm in spirit and good-natured. She’s only 2 years old, so she has lots of time to trip the light fantastic with a partner! She’ll never leave your side. (To see this sweetheart onstage, visit https://tinyurl.com/y2ktsjg6.) Because the shelter is closed to the public, adoption appointments are conducted through appointment, so call 562-570-PETS or email PetAdopt@longbeach.gov  to meet Tasha.
