It’s a Summer Lovin’ Adoption Weekend With Reduced Adoption Fees for Dogs and Cats

Los Angeles, July 21, 2023 – Get ready for the Summer Lovin’ Adoption Weekend at all six LA Animal Services Centers where your new furry friend awaits! Reduced adoption fees will be offered on Saturday, July 22 and Sunday, July 23 for dogs ($51), puppies ($75), cats ($12.50), and kittens ($25).

“With children out of school and parents taking some time off, summertime is a great time to bring home a pet,” said Staycee Dains, General Manager for LA Animal Services. “Getting the kids involved in selecting, training, feeding, and playing with the new family dog or cat is a great way for a family to bond.”

Adopt a Pet Today

Dogs and cats adopted from LA Animal Services join their new families already spayed or neutered, vaccinated, licensed, and microchipped. Adopters also will receive a Petco flyer with discounts to help make their pet adoption a success; and a VCA Healthy Start Certificate, which provides up to $250 of follow up veterinary care within the first 14 days of adoption. In addition, canine companions adopted from LA Animal Services are also eligible for free dog training classes at the Paws for Life K9 Rescue People & Pet Innovation Center in Mission Hills, CA. Contact for more details.

Can’t Adopt - You Can Still Get Involved

  • Shelter-at-Home enables a community member to provide temporary housing for a lost pet while placing  flyers in their neighborhood and/or posting the pet’s info on social media, e.g. Petco Love Lost, Nextdoor, LA Animal Services Lost and Found Facebook page, and Pawboost will help them get home to their families.
  • Home-to-Home is a resource to help pet owners find a new home for their furry friend without taking them to a shelter.
  • Donate and make a difference to help the pets in LA.
  • Be a part of our Share Squad and get the word out to help LA animals find homes and create more awareness on how to keep animals safe and healthy.

  • Volunteer and make a difference in the lives of animals in our care.

Options to Surrendering a Pet

Please reconsider surrendering your pet to a shelter as our six Animal Services Centers continue to operate at critical capacity. LA Animal Services offers alternative solutions to help keep pets and families together, that include Safety Net Foster, Home to Home, Pet Food Pantry, and helpful resource guides. We also work closely with intervention groups who will provide assistance with pet retention. If relinquishing your pet is the only option, appointments are required by calling 888-452-7381. Sick or injured animals will be admitted without an appointment.
