St. Pawtrick's Day at Los Angeles Animal Shelters

This is Tater-he was "dropped off" at the shelter by his owner a few weeks ago.

He really enjoyed his kissing job -pictured here with new friend, Madison.

Tater is about 4 years old (and part Pug).  Who could resist that smile?
On Saturday, LA Animal Services held St. Pawtrick's Day: A "Green" Adoption Event, presented in association with Ruff Patches, from 10AM to 5PM at all six LA City Animal Care Centers.

The event featured: Discounted adoption fees, “Kiss the Blarney Dog” kissing booth, matchmakers to help you find your fur-ever friend, eco-friendly pet products, refreshments, professional training advice, giveaways and much more.

 To be honest, I get more than a little nervous when I go to an animal shelter because I know that so many of my canine brothers and sisters are anxiously waiting and hoping to be adopted and it makes me very sad.

I also know how fortunate I am and that "doing good is just as important as looking good."

Your local animal shelter has wonderful dogs, cats, rabbits -waiting for a loving home.  Many shelters have on-line photos of pets for adoption.

Mom and I attend this event at the beautiful East Valley Animal Shelter in Van Nuys.  PR, Rachel Weil always comes through for animal lovers and it was a great success.  Enjoy the photos.
This is Cesar-part Corgie.  He is 16 months old and was found as a stray.
His ID #A1193243 (in case you want more info).

 Animal Surgical & Emergency Center (ASEC)- the largest referral and specialty hospital in the country,was one of the sponsors.   I got to find out about all the great care they provide in cardiology, critical care, surgery, oncology and internal medicine. They're open 24 hours!
