You have the power to keep local news strong for the coming months. Your financial support today keeps our reporters ready to meet the needs of our city. Thank you for investing in your community.

Betty is an Alapaha Blue Blood Bulldog. She is good-natured, good with most other dogs, and great with people. She is friendly and knows her commands. She is six years young, housebroken, fabulous on a leash and in a car. If your kids are sturdy on their feet, then Betty will be a great addition to your family. She doesn't realize how big she is—75 pounds of love—so youngsters may be knocked down.

Betty is available through the Dawg Squad. The Dawg Squad is an all-volunteer animal rescue working in the Los Angeles area. They rescue at-risk animals focusing on homeless and abandoned dogs providing medical care, rehabilitation and loving foster homes until a permanent, adoptive homes can be found.

Tasha is a strikingly pretty dilute Calico with a calm temperament and healthy purr. At 13 months, she hasn't forgotten her inner kitten. She loves a good game of fetch almost as much as she loves being held by nice people or watching birds from her window perch. Tasha is good with other cats—in fact, she's a great kitten babysitter—but would be fine as an only cat, too. Please fulfill her wish for a home of her very own!
