Reduced Pet Adoption Fees Set for Three Days at SPCA & L.A. City Shelters

LONG BEACH (CNS) - The spcaLA will offer most dogs and cats at its Long Beach and Hawthorne shelters for discounted $25 adoption fees between Friday and Sunday.

The two shelters are among 160 throughout the United States and Canada participating in the “Empty the Shelters” event, in which the Bissell Pet Foundation is sponsoring reduced adoption fees.

Adoptions through the SPCA are normally $125 to $255.

The two shelters have about 70 pets available for adoption, according to the SPCALA.

The shelters are closed to the public because of the coronavirus pandemic, but available dogs or cats can be seen online at

Anyone interested in adopting a pet can fill out an application and an adoption counselor will contact them to begin the adoption process, according to SPCALA officials.

Meanwhile, the Paula Kent Meehan Pet Care Foundation will be sponsoring “Pitapalooza,” which will offer discounted adoption fees for all dogs that resemble pit bull-type dogs or pit bull mixed breed dogs at the city of Los Angeles' four animal shelters between Friday and Sunday.

“We have fantastic pets who are eager to be a part of your family,” said Brenda Barnette, LA Animal Services' general manager. “Be a part of Pitapalooza by welcoming a new four-legged friend into your home.”

“Pitty”-resembling dogs will be available for $72 (with city animal license) to Los Angeles city residents, $52 to those who live outside the city and $100 for puppies.

Anyone interested in adopting from the four LA Animal Services centers can visit to determine which dog they would like to adopt, and LA Animal Services will share all of the information available about the canine.

The adoption paperwork will then be completed by phone and a pick-up appointment will be scheduled, where adopters will meet their new pet, according to the city.

The LA Animal Services centers are open by appointment only.
