It was mid-February when we first laid eyes on the two-year-old gray cat. He was cowering in a cage in the observation room at East Valley Shelter, having arrived there in a trap several days earlier, too fractious even for a basic medical exam. Yet something in his eyes said he’d known people once upon a time. It also said an awful lot had happened to him since then.
She was left at a city shelter two days before Christmas, a pretty young Bengal mix whose sweet disposition stood in stark contrast to the gravity of her medical condition. Mary was suffering from mastitis and her infection was life-threatening.
We mean that literally. Because the A/C unit that serves the middle portion of Perry’s Place picked the worst possible time to go on the fritz. It suddenly ground to a halt during this month’s record-breaking heat wave, sending temperatures in our Isolation and Maternity Rooms soaring. […]
Heaven on Earth participated in PetSmart’s recent National Adoption Weekend at all four PetSmart stores where we regularly show – Santa Clarita, Sherman Oaks, Van Nuys and Tujunga. The weekend’s 18 adoptions put smiles on faces from Sunland to Sylmar to Sherman Oaks.

Kittens Ganon and Navi (from Heaven on Earth’s Legend of Zelda litter) went to their Sherman Oaks home in mid-October after new parents Kandace and Nick fell in love at a local adoption event. […]
New mom Camille sent a wonderful message after adopting kittens Hershey and Dove: “My husband and I adopted Hershey and Dove a few weeks ago. We changed their names to Zoe and Zelda (a reference to the cartoon Bojack Horseman). If Zelda weren’t a full pound lighter than Zoe, it would be difficult to tell them apart as they’re nearly identical. […]
For this Alumni Tail, we’ll let Lyneth’s new mom do all the talking: “Lyneth’s name has changed to Gypsy. We decided that was a good fit for her since she can’t stay in one place for very long! She is loving her new home and is now very comfortable. […]
Cat seeking cat When we met CJ at the Van Nuys Petco last April, she was searching for a companion for her cat, Moo. Adding a new member to the family is a big decision to make, but we’re glad she did. It’s wonderful to adopt to a person so in-tune with her animal’s needs and so willing to improve multiple lives.
