Discounted dog, free cat adoptions at LA shelters ahead of Valentine’s Day
Ahead of Valentine’s Day on Monday, LA Animal Services will offer dog adoptions at discounted rates and waive the adoption fee for cats Saturday and Sunday.
The “My Furry Valentine” adoption specials will be available at all six LA Animal Services centers, with dog adoption fees reduced by $50 — from $102 to $52 for adult dogs and from $150 to $100 for puppies.
“Get ready to fall in love with one of our amazing four-legged friends during the My Furry Valentine event,” said Dana Brown, general manager for LA Animal Services. “Dogs and cats adopted from LA Animal Services join their new families already spayed or neutered, vaccinated, and microchipped.”
The event is sponsored by the Paula Kent Meehan Pet Care Foundation.
“It is our goal to find a home for every pet that’s in the LA City Shelters,” said Bill Crowe, Director of The Paula Kent Meehan Pet Care Foundation. “Now is the perfect time to find your new love!”
Cat adoptions, which usually cost $25 for adults and $50 for kittens, will be offered for free thanks to a grant from the American Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals.
The LA Animal Services centers are open to the public without an appointment from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. on Saturday and Sunday, when the special is available. People who want to visit during the week for dog and cat adoptions can make an appointment by visiting lacityvet.com/appointments or calling 1-888-452-7381.
