Caesar, Nov. 10th Pet of the Week

At the age of 9, Caesar is a few years past his salad days, but he has a lot of courses left in his life, and he’d love you to enjoy them with him! Caesar is a small poodle with leg issues—it’s difficult for him to walk, and he’ll need special attention. But he’s so sweet and agreeable—he even enjoys baths! Do you have what it takes to walk the talk about rescue so he can walk the walk as well as he can? You can speed the process to adopt or foster Caesar and any of our other pets by emailing PetAdopt@longbeach.gov or petfoster@longbeach.gov. You can also call (562) 570-4925. Even better, stop by during our new open walk-in hours every Wednesday through Sunday from 11 a.m.–3 p.m. Our shelter is located at 7700 E. Spring St. Ask for ID#A687756 to meet Caesar.
