Pet of the Week

"My name is Coral Belle, I am a beautiful Calico that is about 1 year old. I was never able to be a real kitten, so I still like to play; I am sweet, loving and quiet… well until meal time, then I really talk. I will need to warm up to you bit, but once I trust you, I will purr for you and sit in your lap! I was a young mother, now spayed and ready for my forever home with you! Go online to or to see our other adoptable dogs and cats waiting for you! Valley Humane Society is located at 3670 Nevada Street in Pleasanton and is open Tues- Sat from 11AM to 5PM. Call us at 925-426-8656 for more information”
