King, April 26 Pet of the Week

Until the end of April, you can get a King for just a few coins of the kingdom! This month, there’s a Pittie Party at the P.D. Pitchford Companion Animal Village, and potential adopters may pay as little as $1 or as much as $1,000,000 to adopt King or any of his pit-bull or pit-bull-mix subjects! King, found as a stray, is 6 years old and loves a walk around the castle moat or a romp with little princes and princesses. Meet his majesty on the shelter side of the Companion Animal Village at 7700 East Spring St., (562) 570-PETS. Ask for ID#A551949.

Blacky, April 19th, 2018 Pet of the Week!

Little Blacky came in to the shelter a year ago and was adopted with his brother. However, Blacky managed to get out, and when the owner was found, he told the shelter staff that he’d be better off as a one-dog person. Which doesn’t help Blacky at all. He needs someone who’ll pay him attention, play with him, and never let him down. He’s only 5, so he has a lot of good years ahead with the right family. Meet Blacky on the shelter side of the P. D. Pitchford Companion Animal Village, 7700 East Spring St., (562) 570-PETS. Ask for ID#A602595.

Marty, April 12th Pet of the Week! UPDATE: MARTY HAS BEEN ADOPTED!!

Marty, what do you wanna do tonight? I dunno, friend, what do you wanna do? Wanna play in the water? Wanna play with some other dogs? Wanna take me home? Marty’s an adorable 8-month-old German shepherd, and he’s been working hard for a long time learning to be a dog! He came to the shelter as a shy, shut-down stray, and he’s finally come out of his shell and is ready to be adopted! He should be in a home that has a dog already so that he can continue his canine studies. Meet Marty on the shelter side of the Companion Animal Village at 7700 East Spring St., (562) 570-PETS. Ask for ID#A603349.

Coco, April 5th Pet of the Week!

You can’t see it in black and white, but Coco has beautiful, sleek fur that matches her name! Coco is a 7-year-old darling pit bull who’s as mild mannered as a lamb and loves lying down in the play yard if it means getting a tummy rub from a volunteer or a visitor. She’s house trained and also knows how to shake hands, especially if she gets a treat afterward! Coco was an owner surrender, so she needs to go to a forever home that will appreciate her sweetness. Meet her at the P. D. Pitchford Companion Animal Village, 7700 East Spring St., (562) 570-PETS. Ask for ID#A603994.

Salem, March 29 Pet of the Week!

 

Well, hi. I’m Salem, and I’m poking my head out to introduce my sweet self! I’m a glossy black neutered male kitty, just 1-year-old. One day, I found myself wandering the streets—I can’t remember how I got there or why I had such a pain in my furry chest. Thanks to the vets at the shelter, I’m recovering nicely—and boy, do I crave human companionship! If you visit me at the shelter and ask to meet me, I’ll be ready for a healthy petting session no matter what I’ve been doing at the moment. Please meet me at the Companion Animal Village at 7700 East Spring St., (562) 570-PETS. Ask for ID# A604563.

Jubilee, March 22nd Pet of the Week!

Jubilee is the Rita Moreno of the dog world—a senior who’s still beautiful and who certainly can move around with the best of them. She’s an 8-year-old boxer mix who dances around that new Play Yard like a real hoofer! She gallops after tennis balls and responds to commands like “sit” and “shake.” She loves treats but still keeps her girlish figure. And when the performance is over and the stage lights are down, Jubilee will sit down with you and absorb all the love she can soak up. Meet Jubilee on the shelter side of the Companion Animal Village at 7700 East Spring St., (562) 570-PETS. Ask for ID#A603989.

Rocky, March 15th Pet of the Week!

OK, play the theme song—it’s Rocky! He’s a boxer, of course, but unlike the human Rocky, he’s a sweetie and loves children. He does very well with other dogs, too, in the play area. He’s 11 years old and was an owner surrender, and in keeping with our St. Patrick’s Day special deal—$20 to adopt a senior pet—we’d love him to live out his golden years in a happy home. So would Rocky. Meet him on the shelter side of the Companion Animal Village at 7700 East Spring St., (562) 570-PETS. Ask for ID#A603425.

Kira, March 8th Pet of the Week!

Our shelter is having a Senior St. Patrick’s Day special on March 17—$20 adoption fee. That’ll leave you a nice chunk of change to buy your new friend the things he or she deserves after being dumped when they get too long in the fang to be considered cute by their owners. At 14 years old, Kira certainly doesn’t look her age. She’s a lovely tortoise-shell kitty who was turned in to the shelter. She’s a lap cat and very sweet, but she needs somewhere soft to land forever. You need a quiet companion? Meet Kira on the shelter side of the Companion Animal Village at 7700 East Spring St., (562) 570-PETS. Ask for ID#A604039.
