Mandy is a 1-year-old spayed female Staffordshire Terrier mix. She was saved just in the nick of time from one of the city shelters. She loves kids! Mandy can live and get along with other dogs, but she needs an experienced owner who can properly introduce her to new canines. Check out Mandy's video here. She is available for adoption from Ace of Hearts, a 501c-3 dog rescue foundation dedicated to rescuing dogs, the day they are to be euthanized, from various Los Angeles shelters and placing them in loving homes. Contact Ace of Hearts for more info on Mandy and the other wonderful pups looking for homes in their care.

Nina is a gorgeous tortoise kitty girl who's anxiously looking for a family now that her sister Cara has recently found a new home. They were born in June 2012 to a mom who was rescued pregnant from the streets of Alhambra. Nina is the perfect combination of playful yet sweet, mellow, and very gentle. She would do great in a family with kids and other pets, so long as everyone understands that she needs her space and quiet from time to time.

Nina is healthy, spayed, Felv/Fiv negative, and up to date on routine shots.

Nina is currently with the Friends of Animals Foundation, a non-profit, no-kill rescue and adoption group based in in West Los Angeles. Call for an appointment to meet Nina: (310) 479-5089. They are available for appointments seven days a week. Come and meet her!
