Alhambra Source partnered with the San Gabriel Valley Humane Society for a weekly column, "Pet of the Week." Every Thursday, we'll introduce you to a new animal looking for a home. This week's pet is Halo, a domestic short hair mix. Read more about Halo below!
Breed: Domestic Short Hair Mix
Age: 2 years
Weight: 6 pounds
Fur: Gray Tabby
Halo has soft grey tabby fur that is best appreciated being seen and touched in person.
She has an angelic personality deserving of her heavenly name. She welcomes people coming to meet her by rubbing against their legs or meowing for attention when she is eye level on a bed. She will eagerly settle into a lap made just for her. She doesn't like sharing her lap, but otherwise gets along with the other cats she lives with.
When a paper bag and cardboard box are given to her, she prefers the coziness of being inside the box. She loves all toys! Especially when marinated in catnip. One of her favorite games is chasing after the laser dot and she will happily play with a volunteer.
Halo came to the shelter with three kittens that have all been adopted. She was a very good mother and now it is her turn to go to a loving, purrever home. She would be a wonderful companion and a great addition to a lucky family. Please come meet this angel and take home your own little slice of heaven. She would love to have a home for holidays!
To celebrate the “25 Days of Xmas,” all cats one year and older are available for the special reduced adoption fee of $25, which includes spay/neuter surgery, a microchip, first vaccinations and a free wellness check-up at a participating veterinarian.
Please come in to meet Halo and her friends in person. They will charm you with their feline antics and playful natures. If a feline is in your future, you won’t want to miss this limited time celebration.
If you are interested in meeting Halo or any of the other available cats and kittens at the shelter, visit the San Gabriel Valley Humane Society at 851 E. Grand Ave., San Gabriel. Stop by any time from 10:30am to 4:30pm Tuesday through Sunday to arrange a meet and greet with Halo. For more information, call (626) 286-1159. See our website at www.sgvhumane.org

Shelter supporters are encouraged to visit the website to read the amazing story of Hoppy told by his rescuer in his blog. This three-legged Chihuahua now has a second chance for a happy life after a terrible accident left him alone and helpless trying to survive on the busy city streets.
2016 calendars are available at the shelter for a $10 donation. The photos were selected among hundreds submitted by shelter supporters. They make great holiday gifts for the animal lovers on your list! If you would like to order a 2016 calendar on line, you can stop by the shelter or do so through PayPal.
