The Shnoze, Oct. 10th Pet of the Week!

They call ’im The Schnoze. He’s a cool character—he told us that he was the understudy for Sparky in Frankenweenie, but that’s nonsense—the movie came out in 2012 and the little guy’s only 3! The real mystery is how such an easygoing, people-lovin’ bull terrier wound up as a stray! With a face and a personality like that, you’d better come quick to get him! Meet The Schnoze at the P. D. Pitchford Companion Animal Village, 7700 East Spring St., (562) 570-PETS. Ask for ID#A634164.

Charger, Oct. 3rd Pet of the Week!

Charger, a beautiful 5-year-old glossy, black fellow is a good way to start the scary season off with. His human passed away and left him to haunt the shelter. He’d be a great cat for Halloween—he doesn’t even need a costume, and he can help you pass out candy mainly by knocking it on the floor. Charger does want to remind you, though, that he’s a flesh-and-blood cat and not just a symbol—he needs security, love and a forever home, haunted or not. You can meet him on the shelter side of the Companion Animal Village at 7700 East Spring St., (562) 570-PETS. Ask for ID#A629137.

Ruby, Sept. 26th Pet of the Week!

Ruby, you’re like a dreeeeeaaam…actually, Ruby has dreams, too. Her most vivid one is a home with people to play with and faces and hands to lick. Ruby’s 9 years old, but she runs and plays like a girl half her age. She’s a happy family-type dog who’d love to meet you at the P. D. Pitchford Companion Animal Village, 7700 East Spring St., (562) 570-PETS. Ask for ID#A521562.

Princess, Sept. 19th Pet of the Week!

Well, yes—they’re all princes and princesses, but there’s only one Princess. She’s an affectionate indoor royale who’s only 3 years old. Our lady was surrendered to the shelter along with her male companion because the owner was moving. The young fellow was adopted recently, but Princess is still waiting for her heroes to take her to their castle. Meet her on the shelter side of the Companion Animal Village at 7700 East Spring St., (562) 570-PETS. Ask for ID#A573363.

Keep your dog fit with Pawscout!


Pawscout, The Smarter Pet Tag™, is the most advanced and connected pet accessory of its kind – with benefits and features designed for owners to build safe communities for their pet. 

I love my FitBit so I was quite excited to hear about this product for dogs! Pawscout will help keep your pup fit and it’s affordable too!

The first pet name-tags originated more than 200 years ago, and while some advancements have emerged in the form of microchips and GPS devices, nothing has elevated the tag beyond a simple tracking or identification device.

Pawscout is a smartphone-compatible and connected, beautiful but affordable, and most importantly, an easy and fun way for people to build a safe community for their pets. 

The tag tracks walk distances, and a live map means people can easily spot their pet in real-time as long as the pet is within a 300-foot range of anyone with the Pawscout App. For extra security, a virtual leash can be set to warn owners if Fido decides to scamper out of view. 

I like how it is simple to use and the app is pretty cool! You can even use the Pawscout map to discover or share local veterinarians, groomers, shelters, restaurants, stores or parks that welcome pets. Now, how cool is that?! There is also a Community Pet Finder. You can alert all users in the area as soon as your pet goes missing. Get notified when your pet comes within range of anyone with the Pawscout App.

I also like that you can create a full digital profile of your pet including photos, your contact info, vaccinations and behavioral or medical issues.

Sounds pretty cool, doesn’t it? Pawscout tags are available on www.pawscout.com, priced at $19.95 with no monthly fees. Much more affordable than the FitBit! The Pawscout App is available for download in the Apple App Store and Google Play Store.

Dorothy, Sept. 5th Pet of the Week!

She follows your every move with her bright eyes. Dorothy doesn’t have red slippers on her four paws, but it’s a cinch that she’s thinking, “There’s no place like home, there’s no place like home.” If you’re on the other side of Dorothy’s rainbow, meet her on the shelter side of the Companion Animal Village at 7700 East Spring St., (562) 570-PETS.
