Hello, friends. This is a rough time for pets. Whenever the economy takes a dip, dogs and cats get treated as ballast on the sinking ship of a family on the brink of financial ruin. L.A. shelters are overfull and the list of innocent animals marked for the big sleep is getting bigger and bigger.
July 4th is another factor, fireworks go off, dogs get scared, run off and wind up in a shelter.
L.A. Animal Services is having a huge, super-reduced fee, Adopt-A-Thon this weekend:
Saturday July 19th, 8am-5pm & Sunday July 20th, 11am-5pm
Cats & Kittens will be $28 (usually $68)
Dogs & Puppies will be $43 (usually $91)
includes: microchip, spay/neuter, vaccines, license (when applicable)
All six La City Animal Service Centers will be participating in this Adoption event. There are over 1000 dogs and 700 adoptable cats that need homes.
