“We are grateful to The Paula Kent Meehan Pet Care Foundation for sponsoring the Senior and Singles adoption event, which provides an opportunity to showcase the older pets in our Centers who are often overlooked, or animal companions who would prefer to be the only pet in your home,” said Dana Brown, General Manager for LA Animal Services.

LA Animal Services promotes and protects the health, safety, and welfare of animals and the people who love them, and is one of the largest municipal shelter systems in the United States. With six Centers across the City, LA Animal Services serves approximately 60,000 animals annually and responds to 20,000 emergency calls involving animals or people in danger. LA Animal Services is part of the Human Animal Support Services (HASS) international coalition, joining 38 municipal shelters and animal welfare organizations across the country to reimagine and transform the way shelters care for animals and their families, by offering access to resources to help keep families together; getting lost pets home quickly without having to enter the shelter system; providing food and medical assistance; and continuing to build on a strong adoption and foster program so pets find their permanent homes or are placed in foster care.
