Los Angeles Animal Services plans to reduce its pet adoption fees on Saturday and Sunday.
The agency said all six of its shelters – located in Van Nuys, San Pedro, Lincoln Heights, Chesterfield Square, Sawtelle and Chatsworth – were filled to capacity with 861 dogs, 519 cats and hundreds of other animals.
Animal Services announced the following weekend adoption fees for Aug. 11 and 12:
Adult dogs: $51 (5 months and up, down from $102)
Puppies: $75 (4 months and under, down from $150)
Adult cats: $12.50 (5 months and up, down from $25)
Kittens: $25 (4 months and under, down from $50)
The agency also reduced fees on Aug. 4 and 5. Some 880 pets were adopted that week, Animal Services said.
All of the pets are vaccinated, spayed or neutered and microchipped before adoption, officials said. An additional $20 dog license fee will be charged for L.A. city residents, they added.
Residents can also get their pets spayed or neutered for free or at a discount. Find more information here.
