We heard their reason for not taking Smokey Joe to the NKLA event this weekend is that he doesn't always like to be picked up. 
So this healthy, beautiful boy at the very bottom of the website now, will probably be killed after being at Downey since 4/2, waiting for his savior. Still in the adoptables bldg, still alive for now.
Please give this sweet cat a chance!
$250 + $50 Petsmart gift card pledged!

We are beyond furious that Downey did not take Smokey Joe to the adoption event yesterday for no reason we're aware of other that apathy. As it is, only SIX cats were taken!!
Everyone raves about what a great cat he is!!
I sent the first email for him 11 days ago, and then was told to stop networking him b/c he was scheduled for the event. 
Poor guy's been there since 4/2!!!
So unbelievably unfair I could scream!!!
​S​till in the adoptabl​es bldg, healthy, neutered and ready to go!!
​Please save this highly adoptable boy!!​

There must be a reason Smokey Joe is still alive! Shy at first, he's opened up now, and Downey has him in the adoptables bldg.
Kehri took the middle pic with him reaching his paw out of his hidey box.
Second to last on the website, he's survived for 22 days!
Please please please get this cutie pie out of there.
Downey just had someone dump 79 cats and kittens and now there are 176 lives in dire straits!!
