Valley Humane Society

Liam is about 18 months old and is a sweetheart with a heart of gold and loves prancing around with his red stuffed bird toy. At first he is a shy guy, he wants to trust somebody before getting too familiar with them. But once he understands you, you're guaranteed a friend for life.

He has been at our center for about two months waiting patiently for a new home. Our volunteers and staff have fallen in love, and we want the best for this little guy.

Valley Humane Society is at 3670 Nevada St., Pleasanton. Hours are 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. Tuesday and Wednesday, noon to 7 p.m. Thursday and Friday, 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Saturday and noon to 4 p.m. Sunday. For details, call 925-426-8656 or visit www.valleyhumane.org or www.facebook.com/ValleyHumaneSociety.
