Best Friends Animal Society is holding its NKLA Adoption Weekend on Saturday, May 2 and Sunday, May 3 from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. at the George C. Page Museum at the La Brea Tar Pits.
Held in collaboration with PetSmart Charities, it is an adoption event Best Friends Animal Society holds twice a year. Best Friends Animal Society is the only national animal welfare organization focused on ending the killing of shelter pets. In Los Angeles, Best Friends is leading the NKLA (No-Kill Los Angeles) initiative, which aims to transform L.A. into the nation’s largest “No-Kill City.”
More than 1,000 pets will be available at the NKLA Adoption Weekend, with adoption fees starting at $50. All pets are spayed or neutered, vaccinated and micro-chipped, and adopters will receive a bag filled with toys, treats, coupons and more.
“Any Angeleno who is looking to adopt should check out the NKLA Adoption Weekend. From playful pups and cute kittens to super sweet seniors, it’s the perfect venue to find your new best friend,” Best Friends Animal Society – Los Angeles executive director Marc Peralta said. “You can even bring your dog along to meet potential canine siblings at the event.”
The family-friendly NKLA adoption weekends are free, and feature adoptable pets from more than 50 local shelters and rescues. Numerous celebrity supporters will entertain, and guests can enjoy cuisine from food trucks. Peralta is hoping for a record turnout and number of adoptions at NKLA Adoption Weekend.
“The sad truth is that 9,000 dogs and cats are killed in U.S. shelters every day. Best Friends Animal Society believes that number should be zero and adoption is a key component to making that happen,” Peralta added. “It’s only by working together that we will Save Them All and turn LA into NKLA.”
