Henry, Dec. 1st Pet of the Week

Orange cats are special, and Henry is extra-special. Henry is a 12-year-old big boy, and he’s as loving and cuddly as he is large. He’s battling chronic kidney failure and is in need of an immediate foster, rescue or adopter. Can you guarantee our Henry a happy holiday? He’ll reward you with head butts to rival any of Santa’s reindeer. 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 or fostering Henry. Ask for ID#A677850).

Star, Nov. 24th Pet of the Week

Meet our Star, both in name and character! Star is a 4-year-old German shepherd girl who is smarter than a whip and shines brighter than Sirius! She’s a dog star herself! Star learns commands quickly and loves to play—ball especially—and take walks. She’s eager to explore on her walks, so if you want a Star to shine in your home, make sure you can handle such a big, energetic girl! You can speed the process to adopt or foster Star 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#A669618 to meet Star. We’re at capacity, and everyone needs homes!

Happy Thanksgiving!

Bagheera, Nov. 17th Pet of the Week

Like his “Jungle Book” namesake, Bagheera is a sleek, black panther who will be at your side as a loyal companion. But he’s not a fierce fellow—Bagheera is a snuggle bug who’ll reach his long arms out in pleasure as you cuddle him and make silly noises in his pointed ears. Bagheera’s just a year old, so he has plenty of years as your best friend! 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 or fostering Bagheera. Ask for ID#A686896).

Niko, Sept. 8th Pet of the Week

Take a cup of German shepherd, a scoop of rottweiler, a pinch or two of maybe some Australian kelpie and a whole lotta personality. Put ‘em together and whaddya got? Niko! Niko’s a bibbidy-boppidy-bootiful beautiful 4-year-old fellow who’s inexplicably been at our shelter for a year. He’s a smart, good boy with medium energy, is treat motivated, and is easy to walk on his leash. His new owner will need patience since it may take Niko a while to develop a bond, but with regular exercise, structure and balance, he’ll be the best boy you could want. Niko means “victory of the people” in Finnish, but he hasn’t had a victorious finish yet. Can you help him live up to his name? You can speed the process to adopt or foster Niko 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#A605387 to meet Niko. We’re at capacity, and everyone needs homes!

Miranda, Sept. 1st Pet of the Week

Miranda is 6 years old and has been at the shelter for four months. She has some treatable health issues, and she also has a sweet, mellow disposition. She’d make a perfect lap cat. Staff and volunteers urgently request rescue, foster or a committed adopter to take over her care. Her adoption fee will be sponsored by a generous donor. 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).
