* * *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 adoptable pets are from the Pasadena Humane Society & SPCA, an independent, donor-supported, non-profit agency that provides care for abandoned and homeless animals. PHS welcomes and cares for all animals in its service area regardless of age, medical condition, breed or any other criteria.

Every year, the Pasadena Animal League hosts a charity fundraiser to benefit PHS. This year’s event on June 11th is "The Fast and The Furriest,” an animal-and-automobile-themed party to kick off the San Marino Motor Classic car show. All proceeds go to the spay/neuter programs of the Pasadena Humane Society & SPCA. For more info, visit their website.
