Long Beach pet adoption
Now through December 23, 2012, members of the community can receive discounts for adopting pets that are traditionally hard to place. Long Beach Animal Care Services is participating in the Found Animal Foundation’s “12 Pets of Christmas” discount pet adoption program, which seeks to increase adoptions and reduce euthanasia among pets that are hard to place and often overlooked in shelters.
The 12th Annual Pet Appreciation Fair and Walk for the Animals, presented by the Petco Foundation, will be held on Saturday, October 13 from 9 a.m. – 3 p.m. at El Dorado East Regional Park—Archery Range, 7550 Spring St.
spcaLA’s P.D. Pitchford Companion Animal Village & Education Center and Long Beach Animal Care Services are teaming up for March Madness, a cats and kittens adoption event.
Tip-off is March 3rd and will feature two feline adoption specials:
Double Dribble: Adopt a team of two for $105.
Each year in June, the number of cat impounds more than double at Long Beach Animal Care Services making it an ideal time for residents to consider adopting a kitten or a cat.
“Nationwide, the spring and summer months typically bring a surge of kittens and cats to the nation’s shelters,” says John Keisler, Manager of Animal Care Services.
Radio personalities Mark and Brian will be in Long Beach to promote animal adoption on May 8. This one-of-a-kind event is sponsored by KLOS radio station and the spcaLA to provide Long Beach families with the opportunity to adopt healthy pets into loving homes.
More than 500 dogs and cats have been spayed or neutered in 2009 due to help from the Haute Dogs Network and the City of Long Beach Animal Care Services.
“Haute Dogs is pleased to help end the cycle of pet overpopulation,” says Justin Rudd, founder of the nonprofit organization.
