Summer, July 29th Pet of the Week!

Summer is the season for big smiles, lying in the sun, and showing your legs—could be why our very own Summer is so named! She’s all legs, in fact, and that smile will brighten your day at least as much as the sun does. Summer is a young girl, 75 pounds and suspected to be a Lab mix. She’s a little reserved at first, but once she warms up, she’s fun during any season! Our shelter’s adoptions are conducted through appointment only, so call 562-570-PETS or email PetAdopt@longbeach.gov to meet Summer. Ask for ID#A659446.

Lilo, July 15th Pet of the Week!

It’s said that if you dream of an orange cat, you might be craving a new hobby or a new sweetie pie. We think it’s the latter. Lilo is a 1-year-old orange fellow whose family had to give him up, and he needs a new someone to love him. Lilo is likely the cat of your dreams, whether you dreamed of an orange cat or did not! By the way, if you adopt an adult cat any day in July, your fee will be waived—one more reason to take Lilo home! Shelter adoptions are conducted through appointment, so contact PetAdopt@longbeach.gov to meet Lilo. Ask for ID#A658751.

Our shelter’s adoptions are conducted through appointment only, so call 562-570-PETS or email PetAdopt@longbeach.gov to meet Thelma. Ask for ID#A659580.

Kona, July 1st Pet of the Week!

We can’t remember seeing such a hangdog look in ages. Kona is one of three American bulldog mixes who came to our shelter a couple of days ago because of housing problems for their owners.

Can you turn the rest of her smile right-side up? Our shelter’s adoptions are conducted through appointment only, so call 562-570-PETS or email PetAdopt@longbeach.gov to meet Kona. Ask for ID#A567243.

Ella, June 10th Pet of the Week!

Ella looks like the kid who sat next to you in third grade who said things like “Teacher! Teacher! Let me empty the pencil sharpener! I’ll do it! I’ll do it!” And yes, Ella is an eager girl who loves to walk on leash and be your buddy. She’s 8 years old and weighs 50 pounds, which shelter staff said is mostly in her legs. She’s potty trained and crate trained as well and would work best as the only pet in an adults-only home. Ella was surrendered by her owner and wants so badly to be teacher’s pet again. Adoptions are now conducted through appointment only, so call 562-570-PETS or email PetAdopt@longbeach.gov to meet Ella. Ask for ID#A657478.
