* * *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 friends who may be interested. * * *

This week, the LAist pets are from the Volunteers of the Burbank Animal Shelter, an animal service agency that is devoted to providing medical, social, behavioral and financial care for animals at risk and determined to eliminate animal homelessness in the Burbank community.

Great things come in small packages!

Pippin is a 7 year old tricolor Chihuahua mix who is friendly, affectionate and full of top-notch personality. He would be okay in an apartment as long as he can enjoy a daily walk. He gets along with dogs and enjoys the company of people, but if you have kids, please bring them to meet Pippin to make sure everyone gets along. Ask for Pippin, ID# A038106.


Destiny is a beautiful 5 year old Tabby cat.

She is quite the communicator and when she speaks she is certainly telling you important things. Destiny is quite easy to please. All she desires are freedom, space, belly rubs and food when she asks for it. Visit the shelter and ask for ID#A037376 to meet Destiny.
