LA Animal Services and The Pet Care Foundation to Host Chi-Pitty-Kitty this Saturday and Sunday!
Los Angeles, April 16, 2019 –This Saturday and Sunday, April 20th and 21st, you can find a new furry family member to bring home! The Pet Care Foundation is making it easier to adopt a new pet this weekend with the return of the Chi-Pitty-Kitty event. Dog and cat adoptions will be reduced during the Chi-Pitty-Kitty event at all six LA City Animal Services Centers – locations can be found at www.laanimalservices.com.
“This event is meant to connect people with adoptable chihuahuas, pit bull terriers and cats, and to celebrate how pets can also take care of their owners, providing both physical and mental health benefits.” said Bill Crowe, director of the Pet Care Foundation.
“This is a great time to add a cat or dog to your family,” said Brenda Barnette, LA Animal Services General Manager, “Regardless of whether you live in an apartment or house, you’ll be able to find many wonderful dogs and cats of all ages and sizes and meet the one that’s right for you.”
Our adoption rates during the Chi-Pitty-Kitty event will be discounted to $52 for dogs, $100 for puppies and free for kittens. Cats will also have adoption fees waived through a generous grant provided by the ASPCA. All animals come vaccinated, spayed or neutered, and with a microchip. A $20 license fee will apply to all LA City residents who adopt dogs four months and older.
