Adopt a Pet During the Spring Forward Adoption Event

Happening this Weekend at LA Animal Services

Los Angeles, March 11, 2022 – It’s time to get ready to Spring Forward and turn our clocks one hour ahead this Sunday, and also a great time to adopt a pet from LA Animal Services, where we have many fantastic pets who are ready to meet you and be a part of your family. To entice pet adoptions, adoption fees will be reduced for dogs ($51) and puppies ($75), excluding license, while adoption fees for cats and kittens will be waived thanks to a generous grant from the ASPCA.

It's Time to Check the Chip

Changing your clock for Daylight Saving Time is also an ideal time to change the batteries in your home’s smoke detectors, and for pet owners to check your pet’s microchip and licensing information to ensure that your contact information on your animal companion’s microchip and license is current and up-to-date, especially if you have moved. Microchips greatly increase the chances that pets will be reunited with their families, especially if they are lost or stolen, however, a microchip only works if the phone number and contact information is accurate.

Center Operating Hours

Our six LA Animal Services locations are operating without appointments every Saturday and Sunday, from 11am to 5pm. We will continue to operate by appointment during the week, Tuesday through Friday, for pet adoptions, fostering, and owner surrender, with Centers closed on Mondays. Sick or injured animals will be admitted without an appointment. Appointments may be scheduled by going online or by calling 1-888-452-7381. 

To follow the City’s COVID-19 safety protocols, social distancing will be observed and face coverings will be required when in our Centers.

Per City Ordinance 187219, you will need to show proof of your COVID-19 vaccination or a negative COVID-19 test within 72 hours of entry into the shelter.
