Cooper, Sept. 1st Pet of the Week

Spring turned to summer, and summer will soon step aside for autumn, and Cooper is still waiting for his home for all seasons. Cooper came to Long Beach Animal Care Services in May, and the volunteers and staff cannot believe that this sweet, playful 2-year-old lovebug hasn’t been adopted yet. Cooper loves to be with people, especially if they’re the belly-rubbing types. He knows several commands and is treat- and toy-motivated—he takes them so gently! But Cooper is struggling with the confinement and stress that go with living in a shelter for a long time. He’s currently at risk of exiting in the worst way possible. Please come meet him. You can speed the process to adopt or foster Cooper 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#A698011 to meet Cooper.
