My name is Barrette but I'm cute as a button! I love to play almost as much as I love to sunbathe in a big window. I don't mind curling up next to the other cats either. I know I'd be perfect for any home in need of a happy kitty.

Before I go home, I will be spayed, vaccinated and microchipped. During my stay at spcaLA, I participated in the HEAL Program to help me become socialized. To learn more, visit me at the spcaLA P.D. Pitchford Companion Animal Village & Education Center.

spcaLA is an independent nonprofit animal welfare organization that has been protecting the animals and people of Southern California since 1877. The organization is dedicated to the prevention of cruelty to animals through education, law enforcement, intervention and advocacy.

Princess Amanda is a petite 8-year-old American Pit Bull Terrier that makes new friends wherever she goes. She is always ready for a party and has a wardrobe of dresses for any occasion. What she doesn't have is a place to call home. Since joining Downtown Dog Rescue, her life has definitely improved. Long gone are the days of being a shy victim of cruelty. If you like to walk, Princess Amanda will enchant you with her leash skills. Please visit or call Downtown Dog Rescue to meet this special princess.Downtown Dog Rescue works with homeless people who have dogs in and around the skid row area of downtown Los Angeles. They adopt out over 200 dogs per year and assist in spaying and neutering close to 500 dogs in the downtown and South LA area.
