Los Angeles Animal Rescue: LA Cats In Need Of Homes On National Hug Your Cat Day

More than 17,000 healthy or treatable animals were killed in Los Angeles shelters last year. And while City Council members and Angelenos come together to make Los Angeles a No-Kill City, there are still tens of thousands of animals that are already in shelters and sanctuaries that need homes now.

In honor of National Hug Your Cat Day, HuffPost LA is featuring local cats that are available for adoption as a part of our Los Angeles Animal Rescue series. Check out 10 friendly felines from our local Best Friends Animal Shelter that are in need of a home. For more information on adoption please visit the How To Adopt section of the Best Friends website.
