Before you
Dear reader, we're asking you to help us keep local news available for all. Your 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.

The LAist Pets of the Week, Cody and Penelope, are from Santé D'Or Foundation. Santé D'Or is a 501(c)3 nonprofit founded in 2003. It is a donor-supported, no-kill animal rescue that provides holistic care and sanctuary to animals, while working to secure them permanent homes.

The organization is an educational resource in the neighborhood by offering rescue and adoption services; boarding and fostering; spay/neuter advocacy; behavior and nutrition counseling; and community outreach. They are always looking for enthusiastic volunteers, and donations of all shapes and sizes.

Sweet nine week old baby Cody has a lot of personality. He is one of a litter of five, but will leave his siblings to meet new people and it won't be long before he is curled up in a friendly lap. Cody has such a good time playing, he'll just fall asleep on his feet when he's tuckered out. One minute he's gazing at you, then he winks a few times and THUNK! Out like a light. He is a growing boy and loves meal time and shrieks with glee when you fill his bowl.

Penelope is a seven year old Beagle who was recently rescued from a local shelter just in the nick of time. She is a gentle soul who like many pets in shelters, was an unfortunate victim of circumstance, turned in by her human companion who had to move into a nursing home. Penelope is on a diet to shed a few pounds (who isn't?) but is healthy, happy and sweet girl looking for a new home. She would be an excellent addition to any household and even gets along well with other dogs and cats!

Contact Santé D'Or if you'd like to meet Penelope or Cody or stop by today's Feline and Fashion Shopping Day. Stop, shop, have a refreshing beverage and meet some fabulous felines from Santé D'Or. Native Boutique is located at 5915 Franklin Ave. in Franklin Village.
