Meet Frankie (13-02542), a handsome 3-year-old gray Tabby with gorgeous eyes and a purr like a motorboat. He came to spcaLA at the beginning of March because his human companion was terminally ill and could no longer care for Frankie. This sad situation will have a happy ending when Frankie meets his new family. Frankie is a little shy at first, but once he gets to know you he is your faithful friend. This kitty loves to snuggle and be groomed!

Gonzo is a terrific Terrier! He is just 2 years old and oh-so-ready for his forever home. He has been with the spcaLA since November when he came into the shelter as a stray. Gonzo loves toys! Like really, really LOVES them. He carries one with him everywhere he goes. He knows sit and is very treat-motivated. He is very affectionate with people, gets along well with other dogs, but sorry, no cats for Gonzo. Frankie and Gonzo are available for adoption from the spcaLA South Bay Pet Adoption Center in Hawthorne. Every year, spcaLA finds homes for about 3,700 animals. spcaLA also offers humane education and animal training, and is the only animal welfare organization in Los Angeles that is also law enforcement. spcaLA Humane Officers responded to 1,445 animal cruelty complaints in the last year.
