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.

Pet of the week: Phelps from 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 week we'll introduce you to a new animal looking for a home. This week's pet is Phelps, a Chihuahua mix. Read more about Phelps below!

Name: Phelps

ID: 24953

Gender: Male

Breed: Chihuahua Mix

Age: 6 years

Weight: 10 pounds

Fur: Brown and White

Phelps is an adorable Chihuahua mix who ended up at the shelter after being hit by a car. His hind leg was so badly injured that it had to be amputated. Phelps has healed from the surgery and has learned to get around on three legs. He is about 6 years old, and weighs a little more than 10 pounds.

Even though Phelps is missing a leg, it is hard to call him “handicapped.”  He likes to go for walks, and even runs, and he gets around as well as most four-legged dogs.  Phelps likes to keep moving, sniffing and exploring new sights and smells and he always has a happy expression on his face. 

Phelps is a friendly, loving boy who enjoys the company of people and loves getting pets and attention. He also has shown an interest in playing with toys. Phelps and his kennel mate get along well with each other.

Come in to meet Phelps – his sweet spirit is sure to touch your heart, and his resilience will inspire you. Maybe you can offer him the loving, safe home he needs. His adoption fee is $130, which includes neuter surgery, a microchip, first vaccinations and a free wellness check-up at a participating veterinarian. Feel free to call us at (626) 286-1159 for more information on Phelps.

The San Gabriel Valley Humane Society is located at 851 E. Grand Avenue in San Gabriel.  We are off San Gabriel Blvd, north of Mission and south of Las Tunas Drive.  To arrange a ‘Meet and Greet’ with Phelps, please stop by any time from 10:30am to 4:30pm Tuesday through Sunday. See our website at www.sgvhumane.org for information and photos of all our wonderful pets
