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.

This week's featured dog is Hopper, an 8 month old, 7 pound Chihuahua/Toy Miniature Pinscher mix. He is very small, active, and loves to play with all pups! He loves squeaky toys or anything that moves and makes noise. Hopper is a pretty cool little guy - a big heart in a small package! He is crate-trained and house-trained. He would be happiest in a Chihuahua loving home with another small young playful dog as a companion. Check out Diego on the Bill Foundation website, his best buddy! Why not adopt them together?

Hopper will be at the Bill Foundation adoption event from 11am-3pm this Sunday August 7th, along with many other adoptable dogs of all ages, shapes, and sizes at the Healthy Spot pet supply store. The Bill Foundation holds adoption events at Healthy Spot every other Sunday. Bill Foundation is dedicated to rescuing and placing dogs impounded at the greater LA animal shelters, into permanent, safe and loving homes.

Today's cat of the week is Snickers, an 11 month old male currently being cared for by People and Cats Together (PACT), a non-profit all volunteer cat rescue and placement group. Snickers is an adorable sweet-natured boy. He has a friendly and outgoing personality, is very playful, fun loving, and very affectionate. Snickers is very secure and well-adjusted. He gets along great with other kitties. Snickers will make a sweet and fun companion who will always keep you smiling. Snickers is available for adoption at PACT's cat and kitten adoption event held every Saturday from 11:00 AM to 4:00 PM at the Petco in Redondo Beach.
