Lacey is a 7-year-old domestic shorthair. She's an affectionate and extremely smart gal with a big personality. Her favorite activity is to open all the cabinets in the cattery because she loves to perch in high places and supervise all of the activities. She gets along well with people and other cats. She'd love to be the one who greets you at the door when you get home!

Friends of Animals Foundation is a 501(c)(3) non-profit, no-kill rescue dedicated to the loving care and thoughtful placement of homeless dogs and cats. For information about the adoption process contact or call (310) 479-5089. All adoptable animals can be seen at Friends of Animals Foundation website.

Duke is a 7-year-old male German Shorthaired Pointer (GSP). His own recently moved and Duke is no longer getting the attention and exercise he needs. Duke would like a companion who has lots of time to spend with him. In fact, Duke has a bit of separation anxiety, which is not uncommon in dogs. Consult a trainer for tips on dealing with this issue. If you work from home, are retired, or a stay at home mom or dad, then Duke is the perfect dog for you. Duke doesn't demand as much exercise as younger GSPs; he's content with a walk, hike, or just playing fetch for a short time. He does love spending time with his humans and is a cuddle bug. He is perfectly content sitting on the couch with you while you watch a movie. He seems to enjoy comedies but has shown interest in chick flicks, too. You can read more about Duke at California GSP Rescue's website. More information about adopting including applications are available online as well.
