At the first City Council meeting of every month, Julie Bank, of Pasadena Humane Society brings a pet that is up for adoption to meet everyone. Mayor Cacciotti says it’s his favorite part of the agenda and he was completely charmed by the sweet pup named Petey, much to the delight of everyone in attendance. Bank writes articles for Pasadena Star News about pet adoption and stories that Cacciotti called “heartbreaking”. Petey is just one of the many wonderful animals available for adoption. Bank explained that they have volunteer groomers who help them groom the animals and said that “Petey is ready for a new home!”
Bank mentioned the thousands of workers across the country who are taking care of thousands of animals during the natural disasters happening; taking care of displaced animals in Houston, Florida and Oregon. In fact, she said, “Pasadena Humane Society is receiving many animals from the Houston.” She reminds us all to include your pets in your disaster planning.
Pasadena Humane Society is open every day. $125 includes spay/neuter, shots, vaccines, deworming, dog license and microchip. You can see photos of all available animals on their website. Bank introduced Maynor Rancor, who spoke as our local animal control officer. He handles everything that relates to injured animals, investigations on animal abuse and code violations. Bank thanked him for keeping our streets safe, rescue enforcement and providing education about laws and responsible pet ownership. She encouraged the community to ask him any questions you may have as he is here to help.
