Adoptable Pets of the Week

Meet some of the awesome dogs awaiting adoption at Best Friends Animal Society Adoption Center. Every dog or cat is spayed or neutered, microchipped, vaccinated and ready to go to their forever home immediately. Best Friends also provides a collar, tag, one month of veterinary insurance and a bag of food with every cat and dog adoption. Dogs are also provided a leash.

Lovely Rita, a 3-year-old chocolate Lab mix, is excited to find her forever people! A volunteer favorite for her calm energy and affectionate nature, Rita knows sit and is very treat-motivated, so she’s a great candidate for training. At a petite 40 pounds, Rita is easy to handle on a leash. She adores people of all ages and is good with most other dogs, too. Come meet this special girl today!

As if Orleans' gorgeous gray coat and mesmerizing gold eyes weren’t enough, the super-sweet boy is a world-class lap cat and snuggling expert. This 9-year-old was a much cared-for pet before he came to us, so Orleans is not adjusting too well to shelter life. He really longs to be in a home! Orleans is litter box trained and comfortable with other cats around, so he’s an easy addition to any cat-loving household. Would that be yours?

Just under a year old, this handsome, happy-go-lucky Boxer/Lab mix loves to play and go for long walks. Winslow gets along so well with other dogs that our trainers use him as the star pupil in training groups to help other not-so-friendly canines learn their manners! What Winslow really needs now is an active owner willing to put in some time and training with him, so he can blossom from a diamond in the rough into a total gem!

Best Friends Animal Society Adoption Center is located at 15321 Brand Boulevard, Mission Hills, CA. The center is open from noon to 8 pm daily. For more information, visit or call 818-643-3989.
