Pasadena Humane is proudly celebrating its 120th anniversary this year. The nonprofit was founded in 1903 to make the community a safer and more humane place for animals, a mission that inspires Pasadena Humane to this day.
This time of year, hundreds of adoptable pets are waiting at the Pasadena Humane animal shelter for loving homes of their own. Dogs like gentle Lua, a senior terrier mix who was found wandering the streets, and cats like Alexa, a sweet, 1-year-old kitty abandoned outside a local pet store, need a proper home.
Now is the time to show your love for animals like Lua and Alexa. You can make a profound difference in the life of a homeless pet. Adopt, foster, volunteer or donate to your local animal shelter this holiday season. With your help, every pet in need can have a safe, warm and loving home to call their own for holidays.
Continue your support for shelter pets into the new year. Watch Pasadena Humane’s “Feed the Love” float, sponsored by Hill’s Pet Nutrition, in the Rose Parade on Jan. 1. Join Pasadena Humane in raising awareness about ending pet homelessness and celebrating the relationship between pets and their people.
DuVernet is president and CEO of Pasadena Humane.
