You wanted pets, we give you pets.

With this weekly feature, readers can view profiles of adoptable cats and dogs of various shapes and sizes from Glendale’s Sun Valley Animal Shelter.

Most of the animals that will have their mugs shown in this space will be canines and felines that are a little harder to place because of size, age or a special need, but are wonderful pets nonetheless. Each animal has its own character, so if you’re smitten by an animal in this column, head down to the shelter and see for yourself.
