Pets of the Week: Byron & Rosie

Byron is a 1 1/2 year old orange Tabby. He is a sweet kitty who gets along famously with other cats. He is neutered, tested, vaccinated, microchipped and ready to go to his new home today! Byron loves to be petted and held and purrs like a champion.

Byron was one of seven kittens rescued by Purr-fect Solutions Feline Rescue hiding in bushes, behind dumpsters, and car engines in a vacant lot. If you would like to adopt Byron, contact Purr-fect Solutions to make an appointment. They are a non-profit, no-kill rescue group and shelter.

Rosie was rescued by Shorty Rossi of the Animal Planet show, Pit Boss (on the show they call her "Alley Girl"). Rosie has had a tough life on the streets, but was taken in by Fur Baby Rescue and now she is safe and sound. This beautiful 5 year old Pit Bull is desperately in need of a forever home. Rosie gets along just fine with dogs of all shapes and sizes when she's hanging out in a group and has her own space, but she doesn't always like to be nose-to-nose. She'd do well in a house or even an apartment, because she doesn't demand a ton of exercise. Rosie's main goal in life is just to squeeze her entire body onto your lap and rest there comfortably. To meet this lovely girl, visit Fur Baby Rescue in downtown Los Angeles.

Fur Baby is a non-profit, no-kill shelter. They provide much needed medical attention, socialization, and training so that the animals in their care have the best chance to find a forever home.
