The Paula Kent Meehan Pet Care Foundation is dedicated to finding homes for dogs and cats. In a joint effort with the Los Angeles Animal Service Centers, the foundation is making it easier for people to find new homes for pets.
The Singles and Seniors program will provide people an opportunity to adopt a new pet for reduced fees. There are some restrictions, but the purpose is to find loving homes for pets that need to be adopted.
The adoption event is taking place at all six L.A. Animal Service Centers on Oct 19 and 20. Adoption fees will be reduced to $52 for dogs and waived for cats. Eligible pets are 5 years and older and they have to be the only pet in the household.
“L.A. Animal Services Centers are full of hundreds of wonderful pets just waiting to become your forever friend.” Executive Director, Bill Crowe said. “This is an excellent opportunity to save a life, get a great new companion, and contribute to your community.”
The six L.A. Animal Service Centers are in the East Valley in Van Nuys, Los Angeles at Chesterfield Square and North Central, in the West Valley in Chatsworth, in West L.A. and in Harbor in San Pedro.
“Older pets make excellent companions because they are generally calmer and ready to be your friend,” said Brenda Barnette, General Manager of L.A. Animal Services. “Single pets are often overlooked because one might think they’re difficult, but they just need to be the only pet in the family.”
The Pet Care Foundation also offers free spay and neuter clinics and has mobile adoption events at Roxbury Park in Beverly Hills.
