Peaches has had a rough time, spending much of her adult life in foster care. She was loved as a kitten, but when her family had a human baby, Peaches struggled to adapt. The family made her an outside cat, but knew it wasn't in her best interest.

Peaches moved in with a Cats in Need foster family. With her quiet personality, Peaches was overwhelmed in a house with other cats. Recently Peaches has moved into a new foster home where she is able to be the only kitty, and has found her comfort zone! She's been showing more confidence and enthusiasm, and she enjoys snuggling with her foster mommy, sleeping on the bed and playing with toys.

Peaches is available for adoption in an adult home as an only child so that she can continue to shine. Visit the Cats in Need website for more information and for an adoption application. Cats in Need is a Southern California cat rescue group that acts as an adoption agency out of local pet stores. Established in 1982, this completely volunteer run organization focuses on adopting kitties into great forever homes.

You can meet their cats at the Petsmart in Yorba Linda every Saturday and Sunday from 12 pm until 4pm.

Jericho is a handsome, exuberant, happy, 3-year-old Lhasa Apso mix who wants to be your very best friend. Jericho was left in a crate in front of a Petco with no information about him. Terrible! But lucky for Jericho, he found his way to Lhasa Happy Homes and is doing much, much better than that awful day. His transformation has been amazing! Like most Lhasas, he is very smart and a little stubborn. He craves love, patience and training. He is a gentleman and loves attention. He occupies his time by playing, kissing and being a very active boy. A canine sibling would be best and a family or owner who wants to train him to be the best boy he can be. He'd love to go running, hiking or just play fetch with you! If you would like to meet Jericho, contact Lhasa Happy Homes or visit them at their adoption event this Sunday at the Westfield Mall in Century City.
