With the help of our Panto family and all of you, let’s ring in the holiday spirit and give back to this incredible organization.

Clark, Dec. 10th Pet of the Week!

Clark was found strolling the streets of Long Beach when he was brought in to the shelter. At his advanced age—10 years old—and his friendly disposition, we’re pretty sure he was someone’s cat. He’s got to have that job again—he deserves it. Because the shelter is closed to the public, adoption appointments are conducted through email, so contact PetAdopt@longbeach.gov to meet Cleo. Ask for ID#A618818.

(This rescue encouraged by the usual suspects.)
