Tales of Hope: Toothless Shelby

Ten year old Shelby is missing most of her teeth. Best Friends Animal Society Los Angeles pulled her from a local shelter where they lovingly tended to her. She was with the rescue for months before she was adopted by Tania and her daughter, Madison, who fell in love with her and brought her home.

Best Friends Animal Society Los Angeles is working collaboratively with animal rescue groups, city shelters and passionate individuals who are all dedicated to the mission of making Los Angeles a no-kill city. As part of this mission, Best Friends hosts adoption and fundraising events, runs the Best Friends Pet Adoption & Spay Neuter Center in Mission Hills, and leads the NKLA initiative.


  1. Did you read the news story about the new stomatitis treatment Shelby made us think of that. Not only are we grateful that people are beginning to embrace no-kil more and more often, we're also thankful for organizations like Winn Feline who provide grants that allow for medical breakthroughs!

  2. What a wonderful organization., As you know, I'm toothless and get along just fine. I've been this way for 4+ years now and not one single problem. i hope this kitty gets a good forever home too.
