Let’s Paws for a Great Pet Adoption Weekend – NBC Los Angeles

Imagine all the places you and your pet go to cuddle, sleep, romp and relax? It’s easy to do, especially if you dream of a dog or create a world in your heart and mind where a cat is by your side.

The next step to take is to find a local shelter or rescue group that offers pet adoptions, and schedule a meeting or see if they have adoption fairs scheduled.

And the upcoming schedule, for many local animal groups, is all about Saturday May 21 and Sunday May 22.

It’s National Adoption Weekend, and LA Animal Care & Control, along with several other organizations, will be waiving fees or offering a discount to humans looking for a loving, furry, scratching, scratching, and ready to snuggle up.

At LA Animal Care, feline adoptions will start at $25 all weekend, while dog adoptions will start at $50 (“additional fees may apply,” keep in mind).

The Best Friends Animal Society has partnered with Bounty for a three-day adoption-focused event, May 20-22.

“Bounty will pay for pet adoption costs at Best Friends Animal Society rescue centers, as well as adoption costs or assistance with adoption costs at 300 network partner shelters, across the country,” Best Friends shares.

A local example of this generous promotion?

Adoption fees for large dogs — those dogs that weigh 40 pounds or more — will be waived May 20-22 at Pasadena Humane.

“May is one of the busiest months for animal shelters in America. The sad truth is that shelters get overcrowded when animals aren’t adopted quickly enough, which can be life-threatening,” says Julie. Castle, CEO of Best Friends Animal Society. .

“That’s why we’re grateful that Bounty was quick to come to the rescue and pick up or help with adoption fees this month.”

“This will help best friends and our shelter partners bring more pets into homes during this critical time.”
