If you’ve been hoping to add a fluffy ball of love and affection to your family, you should check out these animal shelters in the Pasadena area for a pet you can adopt.
About 6.5 million pets and other companion animals are given to animal rescue organizations each year nationwide, according to the American Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals. However, only around half of all animals are adopted each year, ASPCA data shows. On a search for an adorable new family member? Consider checking out a local adoption agency like Sweet Pawz And Meows Rescue, where Luna the cat is waiting patiently. If you aren’t sure if you have time to take care of a pet year round, many shelters also offer opportunities to foster pets until they are placed.
Here at Patch, with a little help from our friends at Petfinder, we create a list each week of all the pets recently put up for adoption in your area. If you’re a dog person, meet Thalia, a Puggle mix up for adoption. If cats are more your thing, there are several great cats available, too.
Click on any listing to learn more about a pet or to start the adoption process.
