Today's pets are from spcaLA. spcaLA has been providing support to the animals and people of Southern California since 1877. Last year alone, they found homes for over 3,000 animals. spcaLA is also the only non-profit animal welfare organization in Los Angeles with law enforcement officers who investigate animal cruelty. In addition to finding animals homes and keeping them safe from harm, spcaLA has a robust Humane Education Department which offers everything from classroom presentations, youth violence prevention programs, and spring camp for kids. Teaching children compassion and empathy for all living things breaks the cycle of violence that leads to abuse against animals and people.

Franchesca (11-03352) is a 5-year-old DSH Tabby. She is a super sweet fun-loving cat, who gets along well with other cats. She likes to play and loves tummy rubs. She has been at the shelter since May and would love to find her forever home. Visit her at the South Bay Pet Adoption Center.
