Adoptable Pets of the Week

S’mores was fostered in a home with four adult cats and two very active dogs, and he did well with everyone. He especially took a liking to the dogs and would spend many hours playing and cuddling with them. S'mores is curious and enjoys watching TV and playing with dog toys. Even though he can be a bit shy at first, he warms up quickly and loves to snuggle when you least expect it. S'mores would do well in any type of home, and if you have other pets, even better -- he'll blend right in! 

Lotus is ready to brighten up a loving home. Lotus is a gorgeous, 6-month-old domestic shorthair with a fabulous, colorful coat. She is ready to go home, and as vocal as she is, she will surely spend time “talking” with her new family. Lotus would do well in a home with other cats, too!

OrangeJuice is a 9-month-old Italian Greyhound mix, and while he’s only about nine pounds, his heart is larger than life! He enjoys relaxing in your lap, and fun walks, as well as playing with other dogs his size.  

Meet Winslow. Just about 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. 

All of our pets are spayed or neutered, microchipped, vaccinated and ready to go to their forever home immediately. Best Friends also provides a collar, customized ID tag, one month of veterinary insurance and a bag of food with every adoption, plus a carrier for cats or leash for dogs. NKLA Pet Adoption Center is located at 1845 Pontius Avenue in West Los Angeles, CA. The center is open from noon to 8 p.m. daily. For more information, visit or call 424-208-8840. 

About NKLA: NKLA (No Kill Los Angeles) is a coalition of animal welfare organizations, city shelters and passionate individuals, led by Best Friends Animal Society. NKLA is dedicated to ending the killing of healthy and treatable pets in L.A. shelters by providing spay/neuter services where they are needed most, so fewer animals go into shelters, and increasing adoptions through the combined efforts of the NKLA coalition so more animals come out of the shelters and go into new homes. In 2012, the coalition's first year of existence, L.A. shelter deaths decreased 12 months in a row, culminating in 4,200 fewer animals killed than in the year prior. Also in 2012, the NKLA Coalition facilitated 23,421 adoptions and 4,458 spay/neuter surgeries were performed.

Dear Ellen,
Every morning I go on The Animal Rescue site to click the purple button on their homepage to feed shelter animals. One day, I came across the story of little Maddie Belle who was rescued from a puppy mill. You must read her story.
She has a Facebook page (Maddie Belle Miller), is an Ambassador for Ninna's Road to Rescue in Louisiana and is the most adorable little dog. You will absolutely fall in love with her. Please have her on your show!!!
Once you read her story, go on her Facebook page and fall in love with her, you will have no choice but to bring her on.
I don't know her Mom or anyone at Ninna's Road to Rescue. I just stumbled upon her story, follow her Facebook page and fell in love. Her Mom is giving her so much love that I am certain she has forgotten those terrible first 12 years of her life.
To have her on your show would raise more awareness for puppy mills.
