Are you looking for true love this Valentine's Day? If you yearn for someone to share breakfast with, who will never tire of giving you kisses and will always be happy to see you, your perfect match is out there! Los Angeles has 1,000's of adoptable pets waiting for the chance to give unconditional love. Even if you have your heart set on a particular breed, 25% of pets in shelters are pure bred, and in Los Angeles, there is a rescue organization for nearly every breed imaginable. Adoption saves lives.

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.

This week's pets are from Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals Los Angeles (spcaLA). spcaLA is a nonprofit animal welfare organization that has served the LA community since 1877. spcaLA is dedicated to the prevention of cruelty to animals through law enforcement, humane education, intervention and advocacy. There is no national SPCA or umbrella organization. All SPCAs are independent organizations that serve the community in which they reside.
