Noah! Einstein! Sammy! Jack! Here are our Pets of the Week

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.

A373396A373396 — Noah is a friendly and calm three-year-old gray and white Pit Bull Terrier mix. Noah has been out on our Mobile Outreach Unit a few times and has been gentle and affectionate to everyone he has met. Noah is already neutered which means that he would be able to go home with you today!

A374797 — Einstein is a handsome 10 years young long haired blackA374797 and white feline. He can be a little bit shy, but he will come out of his shell once he gets to know you. Einstein enjoys daily brushing and petting. Once he is comfortable with you he will purr and seek attention. He would be best suited to a quiet home with a warm lap and probably no young children. Einstein loves to cuddle with his cat buddies, so he would likely be a great addition to a home with another cat.

A377177A377177 — Sammy is a sweet white short haired male rabbit.  His adoption fee is reduced to $15 during our “Hop Into Summer” event.



For “Extra Love” Category

A238023 — Jack is a sweet seven-year-old senior Yellow Labrador A238023Retriever who is visually imparied. He responds well to the sound of your voice, but he would need a little extra care for walks and other activities. He loves treats and is very affectionate. His adoption fee is $125; however, he also qualifies for our Seniors for Seniors program in which his adoption fee is waived.

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.
