Los Angeles, November 18, 2022 – November is Adopt a Senior Pet Month, and what better way to celebrate the holiday season than by bringing home a new love! Adopt a Senior Pet Month was established to help improve the perception of senior pets.
LA Animal Services is waiving adoption fees for dogs and puppies during our month-long Home for the Holidays Adoption event thanks to a grant from Petco Love (not including $20 dog licensing fee for City of Los Angeles residents). The adoption fees for cats and kittens are also waived thanks to a generous grant from the ASPCA.
“Many people automatically think of a puppy or kitten when they think about adopting a pet, but adopting a senior cat or dog is a great way to add a new animal companion to your life,” said Annette Ramirez, Interim General Manager for LA Animal Services. “A senior pet usually has already lived in a home, and is often already house trained, they are also calmer, and require less supervision than puppies and kittens.”
Dogs and cats adopted from LA Animal Services join their new families already spayed or neutered, vaccinated, licensed, and microchipped, and 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 LA 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.
