Meet Pittunia

Last week, we were at Pasadena Humane and found a beautiful little girl named Birdie. We took her with us on a trial basis but decided she was a perfect fit for us. Her name is now Pittunia because she’s a pittie and just like a pretty little flower! We finalized Pittunia’s adoption today. She […]

Meet Frankie Chucho

  I adopted Frankie in late spring 2017 when he was ~8. He was known at Pasadena Humane as “Fat Frank.” He lived a wonderful seven years with me. He liked trying to steal food, giving back massages, and cuddling up with his cat friends. Frankie would say hello to everyone who walked in the […]

Lending a Helping Paw

Feeding that many mouths was tough on the couple, and they worried that they would have to give […]

Meet Buster

I knew he was special when I saw him sitting quietly in his kennel at Pasadena Humane while all the other dogs barked for attention. Buster seemed to be calling out for help with his big eyes and silence, and once I got to meet him, I knew it was meant to be. I could […]

Meet Sir Patrick Stewart

My family and I were very lucky to have come across Sir Patrick Stewart! The first time he walked into my work, I knew I wanted to adopt him. I was telling all my coworkers about him the very next day when he walked in again! So I quickly made an appointment, and luckily, there […]

Meet Button (formerly Maxine)

  Button is having so much fun going on walks at the Rose Bowl, hanging out with her doggie cousins, and learning how to heel. I thought I rescued Button, but she saved me, too.

Our Internet Sleuths Help Reunite Lost Dog

A few weeks ago, an 11-year-old poodle was brought to the shelter after being found on the streets of Pasadena. He looked to have been recently groomed, with a classic poodle cut. Unfortunately, he had no collar on and was not microchipped, so our Animal Resource Specialist team had no way of identifying his owner. […]
