Pasadena Humane Society has doggies to adopt at Rose Parade float viewing

See also

Every December, the Pasadena Chamber of Commerce enhances the pre-Rose Parade float decoration experience with Expo Village, a collection of vendors, activities, and food at the pre-parade float viewing locations in Brookside Park. And every year, the folks who volunteer at the Pasadena Humane Society show up with the mobile unit to offer the opportunity to adopt a doggie friend. Or a cat, bird, rabbit, whatever is in the shelter at the moment.

We spoke with some of the volunteers and petted all the dogs at the event on Friday.

Eva Mulligan is a perennial volunteer with the mobile unit, which is managed by Mobile Outreach Coordinator Marvin Miller. She has been volunteering at the humane society for almost 20 years, because she loves animals. Other volunteers on hand are noted in the slideshow attached to this article.

In addition to providing shelter for animals awaiting adoption, PHS offers training classes, spay and neuter services, microchipping, feral cat trap-neuter-release, and licenses. The shelter had an 83.9 placement rate for dogs in 2012. With the abundance of wildlife in the San Gabriel Foothills, PHS also rehabilitates sick, injured, and displaced wildlife and releases them appropriately. The Pasadena Humane Society is located at 361 S. Raymond Ave. Pasadena, (626) 792-7151.
