Adoption is a wonderful opportunity to give a dog or cat a new life, a second chance – something that gives a human adopter the gift of love as well. It is a win-win, and the rewards are infinite. These adorable pets are waiting at the West Los Angeles Animal Shelter, located at 11361 West Pico Boulevard, Los Angeles, CA 90064. Phone then at 888-452-7381, and ask for these cuties by their ID numbers. Or visit the LA Animal Services website and see the hundreds of animals awaiting adoption at http://www.laanimalservices.com.
The shelter has numerous opportunities for volunteerism. If you are uncertain about adoption, perhaps you can provide a temporary home, fostering a pet who is too frightened to stay at the shelter, or whose time has run out, but who deserves “a second chance” at a life. The shelter has a foster program, as well. Check out the list of animals most in danger of euthanasia on the New Hope List. Donations and volunteers are always welcome.
This week, we have three gorgeous German Shepherds. According to Wikipedia, the noble German Shepherd is a relatively new breed of dog, with their origin dating to 1899. As part of the Herding Group, German Shepherds are working dogs developed originally for herding sheep. Since that time however, because of their strength, intelligence, trainability, and obedience, German Shepherds around the world are often the preferred breed for many types of work, including disability assistance, search-and-rescue, police and militaryroles, and even acting. The German Shepherd is the second-most registered breed by the American Kennel Club and seventh-most registered breed by The Kennel Club in the United Kingdom.
TYSON – ID#A1687103 is a neutered male, black and brown German Shepherd Dog. He is about 3 years old and weighs about 76 pounds. The poor boy, he looks so confused and scared! He has been at the shelter since Thanksgiving.
