Adoptable Pets of the Week

Apricot came to our shelter as a mom with a litter of kittens. Now that they’re all grown, Apricot is looking for a forever home of her own. She’s a sweet, petite girl who looks like a youngster herself and likes most other cats. Apricot is FIV+, which means she absolutely needs to be kept indoors, but should lead a long, happy life with her new family.

Petal is just a kitten in disguise! She's two and a half, but her petite frame and playful nature make her seem younger. Petal loves other cats and adores people. She'd make a fine feline companion for just about anyone.

Killean is super sweet and affectionate, only 3.5 years young, and very playful. She gets along fine with other kitties, has a very silly meow, and loves to “talk.” Honestly, we can’t understand why the strikingly beautiful Killean is our feline resident who has been here the longest. She should be in a loving home.

Umpa is very calm and loves to cuddle up on anybody who visits him in our Kittygarden. He's a huge purr machine, and seems to like everyone around him, including the other kittens in the room.

All cats are spayed or neutered, micro-chipped, vaccinated, and ready to go to their forever home immediately. Adopters also receive one month of veterinary insurance, a bag of cat food, collar with customized tag, and carrier for their new cat.

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

Hi ellen
I love your show and the fact that you do so much for the society. Even my family did the same but not as huge as you do it. You see, my mom adoped the four little new born puppies from the drum street as it happen that mom dog had passed away. We took care of the little puppies and feed them, but one of the puppy is not eating. When ever we tried to forced feed the puppy, the little puppy tends to passed out. Even today, while I was feeding the pupply, she almost died if my brother didn't showed up. He lift up the puppy and gave her mouth to mouth.
the problem is how do I feed the puppy without killing her.
p.s the food we provide to puppy are only milk as they are new born.
