Jake is a handsome older gentleman, 9 years old to be exact, who would love to meet you. He came to spcaLA when his owner could no longer care for him. What a terrible situation for all involved. Jake has settled in nicely, but is ready to go to his new home. To keep him stimulated and engaged, spcaLA's trainers have introduced clicker training to Jake. Come visit Jake at the spcaLA P.D. Pitchford Companion Animal Village & Education Center and see the tricks he's learned, like "touch" and "spin." Jake is an Underdog at spcaLA which makes him eligible for a special adoption fee. Underdogs are pets who are 6 years or older or have been guests of spcaLA for 3 months or longer. spcaLA finds homes for 3,700 animals per year. Find out more at
