Angel, June 16th Pet of the Week!

Angel, only 2 years old and spayed, was born with a deformity of her front legs, possibly radial hypoplasia, which causes the legs to be permanently bent at right angles. She was once very dearly loved, but her human died, and no one could take her. Volunteer Susan has spent a lot of time with Angel and found that although she’s mostly shy at the shelter, she loves Susan to pet her. “She’s my Angel!” Susan often says. Angel can run and even jump a little, and Susan feels that she’ll bond to another special person and love them as much as she loved her human—and Susan, of course. Shelter hours are Wednesday through Sunday from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m., at 7700 E. Spring St. at the entrance to El Dorado Park (no parking fee for shelter visitors). You can email PetAdopt@longbeach.gov to speed the process for adopting Angel. Ask for ID#A673474.

(This rescue encouraged by the usual suspects.)
