Doodalina #A504687 loves to play

Doodalina is a 1 year old neutered Doberman Pinscher mix that is full of fun. Her unique name comes from her silly smile that makes her look like an artistic doodle brought to life. She happily bounces around the playground, tossing toys in the air, investigating every bit of fluff she can find, and generally acting like a rambunctious pup, which of course she is. Doodalina weighs around 65 pounds but is likely still growing. She knows a few commands and seems ready and willing to learn more (as long as that bit of fuzz doesn’t distract her).

The adoption fee for dogs is $150. All dog adoptions include spaying or neutering, microchipping, and age-appropriate vaccines.

View photos of adoptable pets and schedule an adoption appointment on the website. Adoptions are by appointment only and new adoption appointments are available at 10 a.m. on Sundays and Wednesdays. Pets may not be available for adoption and cannot be held for potential adopters by phone or email. pasadenahumane.org

Hermie, #A504518, has lots of love to give

Hermie is a testament to those who had a rough start but can turn the tide. This older guy was found wandering the streets looking very unwell. He was underweight and he had a nose injury. He also had an ear infection and was even missing a few teeth. This poor old man needed attention. Fortunately, the Pasadena Humane veterinary team was able to diagnose and treat some of his ailments. The wound on his nose is now healed, his ear infection has been treated and we know why he was underweight. he has a thyroid problem that can be treated with daily medication.

Hermie now feels much better and is ready for her forever home. He’s an incredibly sweet boy and at the age of 10 he still has a lot of love to give. He immediately jumps out to meet anyone who passes by, and it’s a safe bet that this guy will light up his new home with his positive energy.

The adoption fee for cats is $100. Hermie is eligible for the Seniors for Seniors program, so her adoption fee is waived for any adopter over age 60. All cat adoptions include neutering or neutering, microchipping, and age-appropriate vaccines.

New adopters will receive a free health and wellness exam from VCA Animal Hospitals, as well as a goody bag filled with information on how to care for your pet.

Forrest and Vivian are a perfect pair

Right now siblings Forrest and Vivian are probably playing with two foster dogs in their foster home and enjoying life with their other siblings, Henry and Violet.

Vivian is black and white with cheeky “bangs” over one eye, making her look like a pirate. Always up for adventure, Vivian loves large scratching posts or cat towers in the sun. She’ll tell you when it’s time to pet, feed, or “zoom around the clock.” She is the alpha of her pride, which means she is very brave.

Forrest is a big hug. This Mr. Handsome has dark “tear marks” on either side of his nose, like a cheetah cub. He likes to prowl and explore. He will look at you with heart eyes as you stroke his head, neck and throat. Forrest has the majestic face of a jungle cat that melts hearts whenever he meets new people, but there’s no roar here, just the sweetest little “meow.”

Forrest and Vivian are healthy and in great foster care, but they would like a chance in their own forever home. For more information, 626-676-9505. Email: [email protected] lifelineforpets.org
