  2. Are ther any puppies can’t have a cat

  3. Hopefully, those that adopt will love and take good care of these innocent creatures. Let’s not have another Valerie incident.

  4. Jeanne says:

    You mean Bella the cat that they put down while rescue group was trying to coordinate the pickup of the kitty. That was unforgivable and they fired the person responsible. We had to go through public outrage, local representatives, and the head of the shelter system to have this happen.

    Eric Kendera !!!!!!!!!!!!!! Lets bring a little nugget home 😍😍

  6. April S. says:

    In May of this year, a small cat decided to take up residence in my back yard. She wouldn’t come near me or let me pet her, but I fed her anyway and didn’t mind her presence. Last month she gave birth to 6 kittens. I will keep and feed them as well, however, I am looking for a vet or agency that offers spay/neuter at a discounted rate. Does Castaic Animal Facility offer discounts?

    • jeanne says:

      No they don’t but Best Friends Rescue in Mission Hills does. 1-818-643-3989 or log onto lovethatcat.com for other low cost or free spay and neuter programs
