*** Every Saturday, LAist will feature an adoptable cat and dog from a different local shelter or accredited 501c3 rescue organization. Take a look at these furry bundles and consider giving them a home, or forward their faces to your friends who may be interested. ***

St. Patrick’s Day is approaching and while most people think of beer and smiling Irish eyes, animal welfare people think of cute, clever ways to co-opt. As such, Los Angeles is rife with ST. PAWTRICK’S DAY events at many shelters throughout the city.
