Before you
Dear reader, we're asking you to help us keep local news available for all. Your financial support keeps our stories free to read, instead of hidden behind paywalls. We believe when reliable local reporting is widely available, the entire community benefits. Thank you for investing in your neighborhood.

Meet Noel, who is currently residing at the Pasadena Humane Society. He’s a five-year-old brown and white Chihuahua mix. He enjoys being petted and has the cutest curled tail. Noel qualifies for the Seniors for Seniors program, so his adoption fee (not including $20 microchip fee) is waived for adopters 60 years or older. Studies show that seniors with pets live longer, happier and healthier lives.


I am the perfect lap kitty! Photo by Southern California Siamese Rescue.
Princess isn't feeling very royal these days. Her owner passed away and no one in the family could care for her. She's a lovely girl and has never met a person she didn't like. She is 10 years old but for a Siamese cat, that's just middle-aged! She is very sweet and playful and would love to find a nice warm lap this winter. True to her name, Princess is a princess and would prefer to be the only cat in the kingdom.Princess is available from the Southern California Siamese Rescue, a 501 (c) (3) non-profit group. They do not have a shelter - all of their cats are fostered in private homes and can be viewed here. Siamese Cat Rescue's greatest challenge is finding foster homes for their rescues. There are always more needy cats than they have room for. Contact them if you are interested in volunteering, donating, fostering or adopting.
