Give a Wag! Gives to Pasadena Shelters

The city of Pasadena, California is a city on the rise - for pups, that is! Over the past few years, this mid-sized city just a few miles away from the bustling Los Angeles, Pasadena has gradually become more and more dog-friendly - largely thanks to the shelters and organizations that are located in the city. 

The Pasadena Humane Society is the biggest doggo organization in the city with a mission to be compassionate and to care for all animals. The Pasadena Humane Society & SPCA is a donor-supported, nonprofit organization that provides animal care and services for homeless pups in the Los Angeles County area, including about 11 animal control contact sites and partner shelters throughout the county. At the Pasadena Humane Society, they offer adoption services, fostering, animal control, spay and neuter, and other pet services! They also host a large number of fundraising and adoption events all over the city throughout the year! 

Another pawpular organization is Pooch Place, a dog-spin off of their cat-rescuing counterpart, Lifeline for Pets. This organization began as a primarily feline-focused establishment but recently began fostering dogs and aiding them in finding forever homes. This no-kill, non-profit shelter was founded in 1981.

When looking for your next furry pal, why not check out either of these fine organizations?
