Los Angeles, July 15, 2022 – The Paula Kent Meehan Pet Care Foundation will sponsor the Basic Black adoption event happening at our six LA Animal Services Centers on Saturday, July 16 and Sunday, July 17. During the Basic Black weekend, the adoption fees for dogs with primarily black fur will be reduced by $50, which does not include the $20 license fee. Adoption fees for cats will be waived by the Paula Kent Meehan Pet Care Foundation and adoption fees for kittens will be waived through a generous grant from the ASPCA. View the pets who are available for adoption by going to laanimalservices.com.
“We are grateful to have the continued support of The Pet Care Foundation who sponsor these special weekend adoption events as this summer season finds our shelters at capacity full of companion animals in need of permanent homes,” said Annette Ramirez, Interim General Manager for LA Animal Services.
“We hope this adoption event encourages people to adopt and give these dogs and cats who are often overlooked a second chance at life with new families,” said Bill Crowe, Director of The Paula Kent Meehan Pet Care Foundation.
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.
