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.

August is Adopt a Homeless Animal month and a good time to express the importance of adopting an animal from an animal shelter or rescue organization rather than purchasing an animal from a pet store or breeder. Even if you are looking for a specific size, age or breed, a shelter or rescue organization can most likely accommodate your wishes. 25% of shelter dogs are pure breeds. There is also the option of adopting from a breed specific rescue. When you adopt from a shelter, you not only save the animal you adopt, but you make room for another animal to become available for adoption.

Meet Lily and King, LAist's Pets of the Week from the West Valley Animal Care Center located in Chatsworth. If you'd like to visit Lily or King, the center is open Tuesday-Saturday 8am-5pm and Sunday 11am-5pm.

LA Animal Services operates six facilities around the city where you can adopt, get a dog license or look for a lost pet.

Lily is a 2 year old spayed orange Tabby who is a super sweet girl. She loves people and gets along great with other cats. Lily is a wonderful addition to any family! Visit the center and ask for Lily, ID#A1212393. If you'd like to bring home a buddy for Lily, then you are in luck. You can adopt two felines for the price of one until September 30th.

I'm a happy dog!
King is a 3 year old happy and playful Rottweiler mix. He is a total lover boy and is good with other dogs. He is also great on a leash and would be the perfect exercise partner. He would love to go to an active home or family. Visit King at the West Valley Animal Care Center and ask for ID # A0944228.
