I’m a lifelong resident of Alhambra and having a local newspaper, like Alhambra Source, is very important to me. It’s the only way to know the issues that will directly affect my day to day, where I live. That’s why I decided to support Alhambra Source with a monthly donation.

Efren Moreno, Former Alhambra Mayor

Thank you Alhambra Source for truly informing the residents of Alhambra.

Jeff Maloney, Alhambra City Council Member

The Source has become an important source for news, public interest, and serious journalism in our community. Keep it up!

I support Alhambra Source as often as I can because I believe a free and independent press is vital to the democratic process. No other news outlet with high journalistic standards consistently covers the stories and issues that matter to our community.

The Source is a great independent newspaper that celebrates the communities and is not afraid to ask the tough questions!

Alhambra Source is the ONLY independent news source covering the events, culture and government of our city. We need it to stay informed and aware!

Meet Shenzi at the San Gabriel Valley Humane Society

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 Shenzi, a Chihuahua mix. Read more about Shenzi below!
Name:  Shenzi   
ID: 15504
Gender: Female 
Breed: Chihuahua mix
Age: 2 years
Weight: 9 pounds
Fur: Short tan 
Shenzi was found abandoned in the Humane Society parking lot a few months ago. She is a petite Chihuahua mix, about 2 years old and weighs 9 pounds.  Shenzi was nearly bald from mange caused by mites when she was found. After several months of treatment and weekly-medicated baths, Shenzi is now free of mites and has been cleared for adoption. Her fur is growing back, although she does have some scars as a reminder of her past life.
Shenzi has been through a lot for a young dog, but she is quite resilient.  She has the happiest personality, and always greets everyone with a smile on her face. Shenzi loves people and will jump into the nearest lap for some cuddle time.  She will generously give kisses in return.
Shenzi enjoys the company of other dogs, and gets along well with most of the dogs, large or small, that she has met at the shelter. She was abandoned with a much larger dog, and the two of them were best friends and loved to romp and play together. Shenzi and her current kennel mate are new best friends, and they can often be found wrestling with each other in a good-natured way.  Shenzi is so outgoing that she has been a mentor to some of the shy new dogs that have spent time with her, drawing them out of their shells and helping them adjust to shelter life.
Shenzi is a good ambassador for the shelter and has been selected to attend several off-site adoption events. Her joyful spirit is contagious and sure to bring a smile to those around her. Shenzi would make a happy addition to an active family that can give her the love she deserves.
Her adoption fee is $120, which includes her spay surgery, a microchip, first vaccinations and a free wellness check-up at a participating veterinarian.
If you are interested in meeting Shenzi or any of the other available animals at the shelter, visit the San Gabriel Valley Humane Society at 851 E. Grand Ave., San Gabriel, Calif.  91776. It is open 10:00am to 4:30pm Tuesday through Sunday. For more information, call (626) 286-1159. See their website at www.sgvhumane.org for information and photos of all their wonderful pets. 
And don't forget about our SGVHS Calendar Photo Contest! If you have some great pet photos and want to share, the shelter welcomes your best photos in their second annual calendar contest. It’s easy—just email your landscape (horizontal) format photos to sgvhscalendar@gmail.com. Tell your friends, family and co-workers! Everyone is invited to compete. The submission deadline is Saturday, July 11, 2015. 

Independent journalism is a bedrock of democracy--and it's in crisis. Here at the Alhambra Source, we're committed to covering the local stories that matter most to you. We don’t have advertisers and we don’t have pay walls, but we do have bills. You read to the end of this story. That's great. But this kind of journalism will end without public support. Join us! Support the work and the democratic values it serves. Donate now!
