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.

October is National Adopt a Shelter Pet Month. October is also the month of National Cat Day (October 29th). Do you think the cats are angry they only get one day?

To celebrate the doggies and the kitties, spcaLA is offering free microchip registration for pets adopted during the month of October, plus all adopters receive a free gift. spcaLA not only offers adoptions, but the 134-year-old animal welfare organization also serves the community by offering animal cruelty investigations, youth violence prevention programs, and spay/neuter services.

Muffin is a one-year-old petite female Tabby (#11-03965) who came to spcaLA as a stray in June. She is a very sweet girl who gets along with the other cats very well. Muffin loves treats and is very motivated by food. The spcaLA Animal Trainers have been working on cat-clicker training with her, teaching her tricks like "sit," "stand," and "high-five." Yes, you CAN train a cat (ok, some)! Muffin would be a great cat for a first-time owner or family, as she is great with kids. She loves to sit in the windowsill and soak up the sun. spcaLA has a promotion until the end of October called Experience Counts. Adopt a cat like Muffin, one year older, and receive $25 of the adoption fee.

Freckles (#12-00107) is just as cute as can be with his orange-red coat and his freckled nose and paws. He also has beautiful eyes. Freckles is a two-year old Chihuahua who came to spcaLA as a stray. He gets along well with most other dogs and likes to be in the company of dogs and people. Because of his small size he may do better in an adult home. He loves to go for walks and walks well on a leash. He is playful, but also likes to sit in your lap and be petted and get chin scratches. Come meet Freckles and see if he is the little buddy you've been looking for.Muffin and Freckles are available at spcaLA's South Bay Pet Adoption Center (310) 676-1149.
