Adoptable Pets of the Week

Tamika, a 3-year-old Jack Russell mix, is very sweet and energetic -- she loves playing fetch. Tamika can take a while to warm up to people and other dogs, but gets along well when properly introduced. Once Tamika is comfortable with you, she is a total cuddle-bug. Give this fun, feisty girl a chance, and you’ll be rewarded with a best friend for life! 

Willemena is a former mama cat that still looks and acts like a youngster herself! This sweet, petite girl is 8 years old. She gets along great with other cats; living with another kitty would really bring out her playful side. Willemena adores people, too, and is very affectionate. 

Lily is a 2-year-old gray and white bull terrier mix. She enjoys long walks, jogs and playing ball in the yard. Once her energy is spent, however, Lily is happy to be your lounge buddy, chilling by your side as you enjoy a nap or watching the big game on TV. Lily is very affectionate with people, but not great with other pets, so she’ll need to be your one and only.   

Kirby is 14 years old and super easygoing. He likes other cats, small dogs and absolutely adores people! As a senior, Kirby has a few health issues, such as diabetes and slight arthritis, which can be managed. Otherwise, he's in great health and would make a fantastic feline companion for just about anyone. Come meet this sweet gentleman today! 

All pets 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 pet food, collar with customized tag, and a leash (dogs) or carrier (cats) for their new pet.

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

you are really amazing... what a kind human... that kind not easy to find.. thank you, few have a good heart, thanks for promote animals that need help and for help people who help animals. I wish my country have someone like you... here people laugh about that, for example I have a animal shelter in colombia, 33 animals protected in my farm, i have the only two cows protected in the country and the second one in south america, (I'm vegan) plus others animals (cows, ox , horse, rat, rabbit, cats, dogs, rooster, bird ). thanks for all, <3

I think it is wonderful that you support saving animals and assisting in getting them adopted out. You should hook up with Beth Stern. She works with North Shore Animal League and does wonderful things for those animals as well. She even ends up keeping a bunch of them herself... I bet if you two put your powers together you could do one big benefit to help raise money for the animals! I will be first in line!!
