LA Animal Services and The Pet Care Foundation to Host Singles and Seniors Adoption Event

Los Angeles, October 16, 2020 It’s a great time to adopt a pet as The Paula Kent Meehan Pet Care Foundation will sponsor the Singles and Seniors adoption event from Saturday, October 17 through Sunday, October 18. Find your new furry friend by going online at to view all of our cats, kittens, and dogs. During Singles and Seniors, adoption fees will be reduced for dogs by $50. Adoption fees for cats will be waived by the Paula Kent Meehan Pet Care Foundation and adoption fees for kittens will be waived through a generous grant from the ASPCA. Pets that are eligible will have to be the only pet in the household and/or be 5-years-old or older.
