L.A. County Animal Adoption Center to Waive Fees on Dogs, Cats and Rabbits This Saturday

If you’re ready to get a furry, four-legged friend this holiday season, this weekend may be the perfect time to do it.

Bella, a 5-year-old miniature pinscher mix, is among dozens of dogs at spcaLA looking for a forever home.

That’s because the Society for the Prevention of Cruelty Animals Los Angeles is waiving adoption fees at its three L.A. County locations Saturday.

From 10 a.m. to 5 p.m., qualified adopters can visit their local adoption center and choose a pet, according to the nonprofit animal welfare organization’s website.

As of Tuesday, spcaLA was caring for over 200 dogs, cats and rabbits — all in need of good, loving fur-ever homes.

The fees normally range from $140 to $255 for dogs, $115 to $125 for cats and $80 for rabbits. The cost includes a health examination, spay/neuter surgery, vaccines and microchip.

“We are brimming with adorable, adoptable pets,” Denise Jakcsy, the senior director of Companion Animal Services for spcaLA said in a statement. “We’d love to see them go home to enjoy the holidays with a new family.”

The offer is good for one day only. Some exclusions apply, and — in addition to being able to commit to properly caring for a new pet — all applicants must meet spcaLA’s adoption requirements.

“Adding a new member to your family is a lifetime commitment,” the organization notes. “Please be sure this is the right decision for you.”
