L.A. Animal Services offering 50% discount on dog, cat and rabbit adoptions through weekend
Rather than going to the mall and shelling
out $1000 plus for a fluffy, white Maltese, consider adopting a pet in need from Los Angeles
Animal Services. From now until Sunday, LAAS will be offering 50% off on
adoptions for cats, dogs and rabbits. In addition to the adoption discount,
LAAS is including a free microchip implant, an estimated $15 value.
In order to adopt a pet, head to one of the six animal services care centers listed below, provide a valid driver's license and pay the adoption fee. Charges cover necessary vaccinations, spaying/neutering for cats and dogs and microchipping. The maximum adoption cost for Los Angeles County residents is $117 for dogs, $76 for cats and $56 for rabbits.
In 2009, LAAS assisted in more than 12,575 dogs and cat adoptions, as well as 252 rabbit adoptions.
