Pet of the Week

Meet Buddy...


Bad things happen to good people.  Well, the same goes for dogs sometimes.  Buddy is an 8-year-old Doberman Pinscher/German Sheperd mix.  His owner recently passed away, and Buddy found himself at the shelter.  His spirit is not broken, however!  This handsome boy is a strong, energetic, sweet and friendly fellow.  He loves being on a leash and taking walks!  Buddy is a people-dog... human attention and affection make him very happy.  A house with older kids and a yard would be gravy.  Senior for Seniors Qualifier - take this guy home for a discount if you're seasoned at life as well!  Come share some goodness with Buddy, A008531.  He's eagerly awaiting your visit!  Don't forget: adopters receive a complimentary 8x10 portrait of your new animal-family member provided by our excellent photography team!

About The Burbank Animal Shelter

The City of Burbank Animal Shelter has been providing quality Animal Control services since the 1950’s. Our mission is to return lost animals to their owners, to find loving homes for stray animals and to control overpopulation through consistent spay/neuter efforts. We strive to eliminate animal suffering by educating the public and enforcing the humane treatment of animals.
To facilitate finding homes for animals, the Shelter produces a weekly “Adopt-A-Pet” television program that can be viewed on Burbank Channel 6 and our Animal Shelter Media Page. A selected Burbank Animal Shelter animal is featured in the Burbank Leader weekly. The Shelter features special adoption events and discounted adoption rates throughout the year focused on adopting harder to place animals. Volunteers also host and attend various events in the community to showcase our animals.
The Burbank Animal Shelter is currently staffed by 12 employees. Staff is supported by
approximately 100 volunteers. Both staff and volunteers work daily to provide care,
food and veterinary service for the animals arriving at the Shelter. The Shelter’s
medical program is responsible for spaying and neutering animals adopted from the
Shelter and treating ailments that would normally hinder an animal from being adopted.
We know that together we can make a difference and continue to strive daily to become the best
animal care facility we can by providing quality housing, food and medical care for those animals
who have been lost or abandoned. We strive to pave the way for a brighter future for animals in
the Burbank Community and to ensure that our strays have a chance to get what we all desire for
them - a loving, permanent home.
