Siblings Picasso and Ginny

Both Picasso and Ginny are 11-month-old, domestic short-haired cats. They were abandoned outside the shelter and it is believed that they may be brother and sister as they came to the shelter together.  Both cats love to play and be petted and would make a wonderful addition to any family. They can be adopted separately or together since they do get along well with each other. We do have a Buddy discount for adopting more than one animal at a time so if you want to adopt both of them, be sure to ask about that! If you think Picasso or Ginny or perhaps both would be a great addition to your family, please contact the front office at (626) 286-1159.

Picasso ID#48035                                                                                       Ginny ID# 48034

Simba  is a 12 year old male, long-haired orange and white cat that was recently surrendered by his owner to the shelter.

He loves people and loves being petted and hanging out on human laps. Since Simba is a Senior, she is eligible for the shelter’s Senior for Seniors Discount, which means if a Senior human adopts her, they will receive a discounted adoption rate.

If you think Simba would be a great addition to your family, please contact the front office at

Found a Healthy Cat or Kittens that Live outside?

Please don't kitten-nap: Watch and wait!

🐾 In order to  comply with the #SaferAtHome directives, we have temporarily suspended elective surgeries, which includes spay and neuter and TNR. Due to this situation, we will not be accepting cats/kittens that live outside, unless they are SICK or INJURED.

🐾 FIND A LITTER: BE A SITTER!  Mother cats often leave kittens for hours at a time, and will likely return soon. The only time to interfere is when you are sure the kittens are ORPHANED (left alone for over 8 hours), INJURED or ILL, and in that case, please give us a call at (626) 286-1159.

🐾 If you think kittens have been abandoned, you can help support us by raising them in your home!

For more information on caring for kittens, visit the Kitten Lady web site at:  https://www.kittenlady.org/webinar
