Sammy the Rabbit

I’m Sammy (09-04138)! A one-year old male rabbit. I’m a sweet mellow boy and Romaine lettuce is my favorite treat. I’m litter box trained and I love being around people of all ages. If you’ve never owned a rabbit, I’m the perfect beginner bunny. Ask an spcaLA Adoption Couselor about caring for rabbits.

Sammy is available at the South Bay Pet Adoption Center at 12910 Yukon Avenue in Hawthorne (310) 676-1149.

Free holiday gift for new adopters during the month of December!

Glad Tidings


My name is Logan (10-00021), and I am a 4 year-old male German Shepherd mix. I would love to be with an active family, since I have a lot of energy. I’m great with kids, but not cats. I would be a wonderful family dog! I know sit, down, stay, and shake, and I’m great to walk on a gentle leader. Ask the spcaLA Adoption Counselors all about me!

Logan is available at P.D. Pitchford Companion Animal Village at 7700
East Spring Street in Long Beach
(562) 570-7722.
