The annual Best Friends Animal Society's Spring Super Adoption Festival runs Sunday from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. at North Hollywood Recreation Center, 11430 Chandler Boulevard. There is no admission cost.

More than 1,000 homeless dogs, cats, puppies, kittens, rabbits and birds, in all sizes, breeds and personalities, will be available for adoption from more than 60 rescue groups, as well as from Los Angeles city and county shelters.

Typically, more than 400 animals find new homes in a single day at the event, organizers say.

Best Friends Los Angeles Programs, the organizer of the festival, will also be presenting a $5,000 check to L.A. Animal Services from the proceeds of the Best Friends 2007 Fireman/Shelter Dog Calendar sales.

And, Oprah's personal dog trainer, Tamar Geller, will be there to offer pet advice.
