Pets of the Week: Gunther & Muddy
Gunther is a 7-year-old Miniature Pinscher mix who is looking for a forever home. He says, "I am small but mighty! I'm a spunky little guy with a huge heart, I love to be held, and I'm a fast learner with a passion for treats. I've been trained by 8th graders as part of spcaLA's Teaching Love & Compassion program, so I have basic obedience AND agility skills."

Muddy is a sweet little 1-year-old kitty with a heart of gold. He would be great with kids and a first time owner. Before he goes home, he will be neutered, vaccinated and microchipped. During his stay at spcaLA, he participated in the HEAL Program to help him with socialization. Gunther and Muddy are both Total Package Pets. These pets are spayed or neutered, vaccinated, microchipped and ready to go home. They have been kid-approved or had their temperament tested by the spcaLA Animal Behavior & Training Department so they'll make a great addition to your family. spcaLA is open on Christmas Eve day, so visit these guys or look for another pet to make your holiday one to remember.
Gunther and Muddy are both available at P.D. Pitchford Companion Animal Village & Education Center. spcaLA is the SPCA that services Los Angeles County. All SPCAs are separate entities, there is no national SPCA. spcaLA is dedicated to the prevention of cruelty to animals through education, law enforcement, intervention, and advocacy.
