CITY HALL - City Councilmember Mitch O’Farrell and Los Angeles Animal Services (LAAS) are urging constituents to consider the gift of saving a life this holiday season by rescuing a pet from one of the city’s six shelters.
In an effort to encourage more people to consider adopting a dog or cat as a companion, LAAS is offering reduced prices on select days throughout December. While the Councilmember advocates rescuing a pet from our shelters, he wants to remind people that bringing a pet into your family is a long time commitment that provides you with daily affection and companionship.
“There is so much love waiting for you this holiday season at one of our City shelters,” said Councilmember O’Farrell, who adopted his canine companion Speedy from LAAS last year. “By adopting a pet, you are not only relieving our shelters from overcrowding, you are also providing a forever home to a companion in need that will provide years of joy to your family! I applaud LAAS for this incentive to help save a life in our communities.”
Adoption fees for dogs will be reduced by $25 on December 12 and December 13.
Adoption fees will be reduced to $83.50 for dogs and $50.50 for cats on the following dates at all six shelters: December 19, 20, 22, 23, 24.
