L.A. Animal Services is asking Angelenos to open their hearts, and their homes, to dogs and cats in need of adoption — offering reduced fees at the agency’s six locations Saturday and Sunday.
“Our shelters are full and need YOU to help dogs find homes,” according to an agency statement issued Friday.
As National Pet Month comes to a close, L.A. Animal Services officials said adoption fees for all dogs will be $51, not including license, and $75 for puppies on Saturday and Sunday.
Adoption fees for cats and kittens will be waived entirely thanks to a grant from the ASPCA.
L.A. Animal Services also urged people who might not be able to adopt to consider fostering a pet “to give them a temporary break from kennel life.”
A list of adoptable pets can be found at laanimalservices.com/adopt/.
Dogs and cats adopted from the agency join their new families already spayed or neutered, vaccinated, licensed and microchipped, according to the agency.
