Help Us Find Pino a Furever Home!

By Humane Society of Ventura County

   Are you looking for a funny, smart, and independent kitty to add to your family? Then Pino is the girl for you! Two-year-old Pino was brought to the shelter as a stray in the Summer of 2023 after she was found in a box with her five young kittens. She and her fur babies were immediately placed in a loving foster home and have been thriving in their care ever since. Sweet but shy, Pino may need a bit of time to feel secure in her environment. However, once she trusts you she loves to play with her favorite toys and will curl up on a big fluffy blanket in her favorite spot.
