The kennels and administration building for the Pasadena Humane society’s location on Raymond was originally built in 1920’s and 1930’s. With donation support the facility was rebuilt in 1994, making it a very pleasant and positive environment for visitors and staff. The clean and modern facilities allow the shelter animals to live stress free so they may easily recover from the circumstances from which they came, or to remain adorable and adoptable.
Future goals for the humane society include zero euthanasia for population control. Although not perfect, The Pasadena Humane society has a high success rate for their shelter animals, with 95-98% of adoptable animals finding a home.

Pet Adoption Services: Most people know the Pasadena Humane Society for its adoption services, which justifiably is not made to be an easy process for those looking to adopt a pet. PHS wants to ensure that each animal they take into their facilities will be placed into the best permanent homes and require steps that include an application, an interview regarding experience with animals, and a visitation with the potential animal to be adopted. With the current state of our economy and the upsurge of foreclosed homes in the residential communities there have been an increased number of pets being given up by owners affected by the market. The Humane Society has responded by strengthening their efforts and increasing their outreach programs for pet adoptions.
Animal Cruelty Investigation and Disaster Relief: Just as notable as their adoption services is the work that the Humane Society does with animal control which includes cruelty investigation and prosecution, as well as wildlife assistance. Extending beyond the local communities, the Pasadena Humane Society has provided aid nationally for catastrophes and natural disasters in which domestic and wild animals lives are at risk.
Please Spay and Nueter your pets!

What we now know as Old Town Pasadena, first emerged as a town in the 1870’s. Old town began to see an increase of development in the 1890’s when the main throuroughfaire, Colorado Blvd, was paved. By this time blacksmith shops, carriage sales, storage enterprises, and livery stables all ran down Colorado Blvd.
The world renowned Rose Parade is centered in Old Town. The first Tournament of Roses was staged in 1890 by members of Pasadena’s Valley Hunt Club. These club members were former residents of from the East and Midwest eager to showcase Pasadena as the place where the “flowers were blooming” on January. They wanted to tell the world about “their new paradise.” More than 2000 people came out on that day to view a parade of flower-covered carriages, foot races, and polo matches. Today, most floats are built by professional float companies and take almost a year to design and construct. An estimated 350 million television viewers in more than 80 countries around the world join nearly one million curbside spectators for the Rose Parade on new years day.
Old Pasadena is unique in that the majority of its commercial buildings along the Colorado Boulevard were constructed during the period from around 1886 to 1918, and still house commercial enterprises with little change to many of their facades.
Originally the Hotel Green, just north of Central Park in Old Pasadena is the well known historic Castle Green. Converted over from a hotel into condos in the 1920’s, the Castle Green is still the home to 50 residential units and are owned by residents that have respect and admiration for Pasadena’s history.
There have also been recent modern residential developments in old town that offer modern loft living above ground floor commercial buildings.
Although old town is so well known for it’s shopping, just as eminent is the dining and night life, which is becoming more and more sophisticated in the new century.
Old Pasadena features over 100 diverse restaurants, including award-winning fine dining and charming outdoor cafés, as well as museums a world class movie theatre, sports pubs, wine bars, and a wide array of places for late night live music and dancing.
The historic streets and alleyways, rustic brick façades and architectural accents of Pasadena’s original business district refuses to fade into history.
