4 DAYS 4 LIFE ADOPTION EVENT
Los Angeles Animal Services Offers Waived Adoption
Fees for Dogs at all Six L.A. City Animal Shelters
Los Angeles, June 29, 2018 – While many people celebrate the Fourth of July with big gatherings and firework festivities, many furry family members prefer a quite day at home. Fireworks are no picnic for pets. The loud noises can frighten dogs and cats and cause them to escape their house or yard in attempt to look for safety.
In hopes to find more homes for more wonderful pets, we’re offering free dog adoptions at all six LA Animal Services Centers this Friday, June 29th through Sunday, July 1st and Tuesday, July 3rd.
LA Animal Services pets are vaccinated, spayed or neutered, and microchipped. While the dog adoption fees are waived, there will be a $20 dog license fee applied for LA City residents. Adopters will need to provide a valid government issued identification card when adopting. To view all of our adoptable pets, please visit: laanimalservices.com/adopt/finding-a-companion
Every year around the Fourth of July, our LA Animal Services Centers fill beyond capacity with terrified, lost pets. This means that available shelter space can be the difference between life and death for our cat and dog guests who have been with us past the required hold period. You can make that life-saving difference by fostering a pet for four days or more or adopting. Four days allows us the time needed to contact and return lost pets to their owners.
Potential foster volunteers can print out the LA Animal Services foster application available online (laanimalservices.com/foster) or visit one of six animal services centers and ask for a Foster Volunteer Application. Foster applications can only be accepted in person during regular work hours at the animal shelter they would like to foster from. You must also provide a government issued identification card and proof of rabies vaccinations for dogs currently in their care. Please apply and begin fostering as soon as possible as we expect to see an influx of lost pets starting this weekend.
We are are open Tuesday through Saturday from 8 am to 5 pm and Sunday 11 am to 5 pm. We are closed on Mondays and the Fourth of July. To find the center nearest you, visit laanimalservices.com/shelter-locator or call (888) 452-7381.
