Adopt or Foster this Holiday Weekend

7:22am

There is one furry group of neighbors in Venice who never seem to enjoy the holiday weekend as much as their paw-rents. Locals are stocking up on sedatives and Thunder Jackets to help their dogs make it through yet another 4th of July full of fireworks cracking over Venice beach.

Los Angeles city animal shelters are offering a $10 adoption rate for dogs and cats over the Fourth of July weekend, when city officials are expecting an influx of animals at shelters that are startled by fireworks and run away.

The typical adoption fees can be as much as $122 for dogs and $76 for
cats. The fee of $10 is available today until Sunday, and will cover spay or
neutering, vaccination, and microchipping.

If you’ve no room for another fur baby, animal shelters are also offering the option of temporarily fostering pets for four or more days, as an alternative to adoption, as a way of easing the burden on shelters over the weekend. Fostering applications are available at each of the city’s animal shelters.

Councilman Mitch O’Farrell urged the public to consider adopting pets
this weekend so that shelters will not need to consider euthanasia.  “When shelters go beyond capacity, shelter employees must face the possibility of euthanizing these animals,” he said. “Angelenos have stepped up to the plate when it comes to rescuing our four-legged companions, and I want to make sure we continue the march toward no kill shelters in the City of Angels.”

adoption is at http://www.laanimalservices.com/shelters .
