Pets of the Week: Scruffy, Joy and Olivia

Before you
Dear reader, we're asking you to help us keep local news available for all. Your tax-deductible financial support keeps our stories free to read, instead of hidden behind paywalls. We believe when reliable local reporting is widely available, the entire community benefits. Thank you for investing in your neighborhood.

Scruffy is a 1-year-old Shih Tzu/Maltese mix who is a happy and energetic little dude. Joy is a 1-year-old Chihuahua/Rat Terrier mix who is an energetic and playful little girl. She is eager to please. This bonded pair loves snuggle time. Friends of Harbor Animals would love to find them a home together, but if necessary, they can be placed separately as long as they find a forever home that includes another canine companion.

They both get along great with other big and little dogs as well as cats in their foster home. Scruffy and Joy have been vaccinated, dewormed, microchipped, and spayed. ContactFriends of Harbor Animals if you would like to meet Scruffy and Joy.

Rescued from the hills of Silver Lake, beautiful Olivia loves to play and she loves human contact. Olivia is a domestic short-hair cat and is approximately seven years old. Olivia is quite the conversationalist! She will add so much joy and affection to your home. Olivia is available for adoption through Forgotten Animals of Los Angeles(FALA). FALA has an application and screening process as well as an adoption fee which covers spay/neuter surgery, inoculations, deworming, testing for feline leukemia virus/feline immunodeficiency virus, flea treatment (if needed), and a microchip. The adoption fee is tax deductible. FALA is an all volunteer organization, allowing 100% of all donations to directly help the animals.
