Billy Is Rocking The Rescue Train!

We rescued Billy from the Baldwin Park - LA County Animal Care where he came in as a stray. His unique look, long legs and sweet soul immediately caught our eye. Upon exiting the shelter, he gave his rescuer a BIG hug and kiss. This LOVER BOY is full of gratitude and affection. Hes got some PUPPY LOVE for you!

Hes got many nicknames on The Rescue Train: Rockabilly, Silly Billy, Billy The Kid. Just like a little goat, he kicks and leaps in the air in fun and play.

Billy is 2-years-old, but still has puppy energy and is very active. Hes such an interesting mix trying to figure out his mix of breeds is a guessing game. Definitely part terrier. He weighs approximately 18 pounds. Hes very social, LOVES people and other dogs his size. Hes good with cats although they tend to scare him.

Billy is in foster home and they are working on his leash walking. He comes when hes called, loves to ride in the car and is housebroken. Hes smart and learns very quickly. Like all dogs he would benefit in an obedience class to bond with a new owner.

If you want to fall in love, this heartthrob is the companion for you. Fargo Shy and Sweet!

Sweet shy Fargo! He turned 1 year old in July 2017 and weighs 15 pounds. He's a big boy! He loves to eat. He looks like an Abyssinian mix with his black stripe down his back and on his head. Fargo is VERY shy with new people and hands reaching for him, so he's looking for a shy-cat-experienced home with at least one other kitten or cat friend. He loves loves loves other cats! He seems to bond best to boy cats who like to snuggle and wrestle, but he gets along okay with his sister Audi, also up for adoption. Fargo had tough start in life. He was born in a home with too many cats and almost starved to death as baby. He was rescued just in nick of time, rushed to our vet, and put into an incubator with the best vet care possible which saved his life. Fargo is now super healthy and thriving! It took months but Fargo finally learned to trust his foster mom and dad. He will climb into laps for a nap, but still flinches if touched unless he's distracted with food. He follows his foster mom from room to room and likes to be nearby. At playtime, he's a tiger-spotted adventure boy! He loves to play with all kinds of toys and race around after his kitty friends, up and down cat trees like a little leopard. He's so much fun! Meet Charlie! The Purr-fect Gentlemen

Charlie is the PURRfect Gentleman!

Charlie will charm you with his tuxedo made of the softest fur. This 2 year old kitty follows his foster mom around like a pup. Eagerly ready to play and be loved he doesn't ask for much.

He is generous, letting his sister Lily eat first and grooming her on occasion.

He's inquisitive and loves his scratch pad, his perch at the top of the sofa, and watching birds out the window. He easy to handle and never uses his claws. He does well at staying off of surfaces he's told to leave alone.

He loves to be told he's a good boy and will purr up a storm!

Los Angeles has a large population of cats that need homes. Charlie has been waiting so patiently for a FURever family. He is such an easy and delightful boy he truly deserves one. His saucer eyes greet you as you walk in the door and every time you leave he's pretty sure he's going with you..and we hope that happens on The Rescue Train.
