L.A. Animal Services waives adoption fees during holidays
With Los Angeles Animal Services extending its Home 4 the Holidays campaign, ‘tis the season to give a shelter pet a happy holiday. Thanks to a grant from the ASPCA, adoption fees for dogs, puppies, cats and kittens are waived through Dec. 31, not including a $20 license fee for dogs over four months.
“Our shelters continue to be at capacity as animals continue to be brought in with nowhere else to go,” said Annette Ramirez, interim general manager for L.A. Animal Services. “We are encouraging our animal loving community to open their hearts and homes and adopt and foster a pet to give these amazing animals a loving home to enjoy the holiday season.”
Dogs and cats adopted from L.A. Animal Services join their new families already spayed or neutered, vaccinated, licensed and microchipped. Adopters receive a VCA Healthy Start Certificate, which provides up to $250 of follow up veterinary care within the first 14 days of adoption. In addition, canine companions adopted from L.A. Animal Services are also eligible for free dog training classes at the Paws for Life K9 Rescue People & Pet Innovation Center in Mission Hills, CA.
