The holidays are right around the corner and in the spirit of giving ARME has organized a Thanksgiving Shelter Drive to collect items for animals in the six Los Angeles city shelters.  Let’s make their time spent waiting for a forever home more bearable while spreading the word that people should adopt, not shop, for their next pet.

We are excited to be one of the drop off locations.  You can see a full list of drop off sites here.  Or come visit our showroom at 408 S. Pasadena Ave Ste #1 Pasadena, CA.  You can bring toys, treats, blankets, beds, cots, scratchers & climbers for dogs, cats and rabbits.  Drop off times are from 11am to 6pm M-F but if you want to make a donation and can only come on the weekend just give us a call and we can set up a time.  Our number is 626 396 4972.

Donations will be accepted until November 16th.

Animal Adoption

  • Bunny Adoptions: It’s just about time for Easter and that means a lot people will come up with the brilliant idea to put a live bunny or chick in their child’s Easter Basket thinking it’s “cute”.  After the novelty and excitement wear off the animal will be dumped at a shelter because  the reality of having to actually take care of him/her will set in.  Places like BunnyLuv Rabbit Resource Center, a non-profit no-kill shelter, will be over flowing with unwanted bunns.  We want to encourage families to consider responsible adoption as opposed to buying an Easter themed animal on a whim.  A bunny can be a wonderful addition to your family IF you’re ready and able to give him/her the care and love that they need for life.  If you’re not, then a stuffed animal toy and a whole lot of candy will probably do the trick.  BunnyLuv offers information on diet, litter box training, travel and more for those of you who are deciding if bunny adoption is right for you.  They also have photos of available bunns.

Joshua & Charlie are two peas in pod! Bunny Fact: Bunns like to eat and poop simultaneously...oh my!
