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.

Pappas (A285836), a three-year-old Chihuahua mix is too cute for words! He has a happy personality, is very active, and loves people. He also gets along with the other little dogs in his kennel. Pappas loves to cuddle and play. He needs a home where he will receive plenty of attention. The regular dog adoption fee is $120, which includes medical care prior to adoption, spaying or neutering, vaccinations, and a follow-up visit with a participating vet.


Doubles (A286674), a lovely, year old, tortoise shell cat is in need of a loving home. She is very outgoing and loves people but may prefer to be the only cat in the household.
