Before you read more...
Dear reader, we're asking you to help us keep local news available for all. Your tax-deductible 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.

Billy (A1354964) is an energetic 3 year-old male American Pit Bull Terrier with a handsome gray and white coat and a positively goofy looking tail. Billy weighs 60 pounds and has been in the shelter since October 31st. Billy would be the perfect dog for an active owner. He is rambunctious, sweet, fun-loving, and loves people. He would prefer to be the only dog in the house-hold, so if you are looking for a singleton, Billy is your man. Here's a videoof Billy in action.

Lovely little Alisha (A1364759) is a 5 year-old spayed female, brown tiger Domestic Short Hair who is sad to have been surrendered by her former owners. She doesn't care too much for the the shelter's kennel, but she absolutely adores receiving love, attention, and petting. Alisha weighs 12 pounds and has been at the shelter since December 24th. If you are looking to give a little kitty a second chance for a happy home, come visit her today.

Billy and Alisha are available for adoption from the North Central Los Angeles Animal Shelter. Both pets' adoption fees include spay/neuter surgery, microchip and vaccines (including rabies).
