Adoptable Pets of the Week

At 3 years old, Hawthorne is considered a youngster, but has a very mellow, easygoing temperament. He gets along great with other little dogs and walks well on a leash. Since Hawthorne is a small dog, he’d do well in an apartment or condo. Hawthorne would make a fantastic best friend for just about anyone! 

Dreamsicle is dreamy with her shiny black fur, striking green eyes and regal bearing. This friendly 4-year-old is great with other cats and adores people, so she’d fit well in just about any household. Dreamsicle likes to hang out by the window and watch the world go by… we think she’s daydreaming of finding her forever person and finally having a home of her own. Would that be yours? 

Beckham, at 7 years old, is a great, calm companion, but he’s still spunky enough to enjoy long walks and mellow hikes. Beckham does okay with some other dogs, or would flourish as an only pet. What Beckham likes most is cuddling and giving kisses. He’d make a fantastic best friend. Come meet Beckham for yourself and see if he doesn’t steal your heart!

Nacho, a 3-year-old tabby, came to us really shy, but after some time at our center, this handsome boy with the big, beautiful yellow eyes has slowly come out of his shell. He gets along well with other mellow cats and is receptive to being petted. Nacho would probably love being a lap cat, after he's had a little time to acclimate. If you're a patient cat lover, adopt Nacho and give him a chance to blossom. He'll repay you with years of love and loyal companionship.

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. 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.
