Sencha (and Earl Grey), June 28th Pet(s) of the Week!

We’ll bet that Sencha and brother Earl Grey would be welcome at your tea party! Senchais the more aged at 2 years old—he’s got a strong, playful flavor to him! Here he is dipping himself in the pool like a veritable teabag! Sibling Earl Grey at a year old is just as refreshingly friendly! If a couple of German shepherd/husky mixes are your cup of tea, meet them at Long Beach Animal Care Services on the shelter side of the P.D. Pitchford Animal Village, 7700 E. Spring St., Long Beach, (562) 570-PETS. Ask for ID#A609172 for Sencha and ID#A609173 for Earl Grey.

Emerson, June 21st Pet of the Week

We wish we could have even a fraction of Emerson’s attitude! Despite a gimpy hind leg, this adorable 5-year-old Maltese mix loves life! The lame leg could be a result of an injury, and it needs to be either reset or amputated. Our shelter vet said that she’d reset his leg if someone would step up to foster him for a while or, better yet, adopt him. Wouldn’t you love an outcome like that! Meet Emerson on the shelter side of the Companion Animal Village at 7700 East Spring St., (562) 570-PETS. Ask for ID#A607649.

Cous-Cous, June 14th Pet of the Week!

Cous-Cous is about 5 years old, with a tabby saddle about the same color as a heavily spiced dish of her namesake! But she’s more sweet than spicy—she’s mellow and approachable, and she believes everyone who meets her is approachable as well. She’d be a wonderful new friend. Meet Cous-Cous at the Companion Animal Village at 7700 East Spring St., (562) 570-PETS. Ask for ID# A607520.

Mister, June 7th Pet of the Week

Mister, with his sleek muscular build and beautiful fawn-colored coat, is well named! He’s a young sir just out of puppyhood and well on his way to being a wonderful companion to anyone who wants a loving, playful friend. Mister appears to be a pit bull terrier/boxer mix, and at only a year and a half old, he has plenty of time to give anyone, be they family or just an active, single human. Meet Mister on the shelter side of the Companion Animal Village at 7700 East Spring St., (562) 570-PETS. Ask for ID#A606230.

Mai Tai, May 31 Pet of the Week

The number of kittens being born this time of year often leaves the older cats at a loss. Mai Tai, a blue-point Siamese, isn’t that old—she’s 2—but she’s a mellow girl as well as sweet and good natured. This is a win-win for anyone wanting a young cat but no kitten behavior. It’s the end of May—great time to make Mai Tai your Thai! Meet her on the shelter side of the Companion Animal Village at 7700 East Spring St., (562) 570-PETS. Ask for ID# A607390.

Droopy, May 24th Pet of the Week

Droopy’s been likened to the Stay-Puft Marshmallow Man—he is a big marshmallow!–and described as “a lumpy sort of fellow with a big heart” by the shelter staff. But once he’s out in the play yard, Droopy isn’t droopy! He loves to play with the other dogs in the play yard, is well trained and gentle, and loves walks. He’s a 5-year-old pit bull and, sadly, an owner surrender—he lived with young kids in his previous household, so he’s used to a lot of love and so deserves it. Meet our Droopy on the shelter side of the P. D. Pitchford Companion Animal Village, 7700 East Spring St., (562) 570-PETS. Ask for ID#A504961.

Coco, May 17th Pet of the Week

We’re asking for a chance for a doggie who needs to have his remaining years be golden. His name’s Coco, and he’s a German shepherd mix. Despite his 15 or so years, he’s still playful and affectionate. It isn’t fair that a dog this old has to spend his final time in a shelter. Can you provide a safe place for him to curl up? Meet Coco at the P. D. Pitchford Companion Animal Village, 7700 East Spring St., (562) 570-PETS. Ask for ID#A369565.
