Tofu! Tiffani! Toby! Dorothy! Meet Our Friendly Pets of the Week
This week, we introduce you to four pets up for adoption now at the Pasadena Humane Society. See a friendly face you want to bring home? Call (626) 792-7151 with the ID number.
Tofu (A380991) is a sweet eight-year-old Chihuahua and Parson Jack Russell Terrier mix. He is a calm, affectionate, easy going senior who loves sitting in laps and and going for walks. Tofu has been out on our mobile unit where he was loved by all! Tofu also qualifies for our Seniors for Seniors program which waives the adoption fee for adopters age 60 and up. The mandatory microchip fee of $20 still applies. Tofu’s regular adoption fee is $125, including the spay surgery, microchip and a set of vaccines.
Meet gorgeous Tiffani (A381086)! She is a two-year-old petite tortie. You will often find her on top of the perch greeting visitors in the cattery. Tiffani loves attention, face rubs, and playtime. She is a very social and confident feline that would do great in loving forever home. Tiffani is already spayed, fully vaccinated, and microchipped which means she is ready to go home with you today. She would do best in a home that will continue to provide her with lots of love and attention! Tiffani’s adoption fee is $70, including the spay surgery, microchip and a set of vaccines.
Toby is a very friendly short-haired male rabbit. He is a curious fellow who enjoys attention. Toby’s adoption fee is currently $15, including the neuter surgery and microchip.
For the Extra Love Category
Dorothy (A382379) is a cute 11-year-old white and brown Cavalier King Charles Spaniel mix. She is a very sweet and calm senior. Dorothy is blind in her right eye, but she doesn’t let that slow her down! She enjoys interaction and attention and would love to find her new forever home. Dorothy qualifies for our Seniors for Seniors program which waives the adoption fee for adopters age 60 and up. The mandatory microchip fee of $20 still applies. Dorothy’s regular adoption fee is $125, including the spay surgery, microchip and a set of vaccines.
Our friends in Pasadena Humane Society have some tips in animal adoption:
Adopting an animal may be more involved than you realize, they warn. Keep in mind that everything they do is aimed at getting the best permanent home possible for the animals and that everyone who comes to the Pasadena Humane Society to adopt an animal goes through the same process.
You must apply in person, be at least 18 years old and have a current photo ID.
The process takes a minimum of 30-45 minutes. Here is what will happen:
You can take a walk through the animal areas and write down the ID number or “A” number on the kennel card of any animal that interests you. Bring this list to the adoption office.
Then complete the application for adoption. (You do this before visiting with any of the animals in order to minimize stress for the animals.)
Next, a member of the adoptions staff will meet with you and ask questions about your experience, and discuss the information we have about your potential pet. You can ask questions, too, about spay/neuter, training classes, or anything else you can think of.
You may be asked to obtain your landlord’s approval for the adoption. This policy helps us reduce the number of animals that are returned to us.
After you have spoken with an adoptions staff member, you will visit with your potential pet. Eventually, we ask that all members of your family meet the animal, too. If you are adopting a dog and have another dog, we want them to get along well, so we arrange a time for you to bring in your pet for a visit.
When your new pet is ready to go home with you, you will be asked to sign an adoption contract and pay an adoption fee. The fee helps to cover the cost of surgery, vaccines and daily care that your pet received.
