‘No-Kill Los Angeles Pet Adoption Center’ Opens In West LA
WEST LOS ANGELES (CBSLA.com) — “No-Kill Los Angeles Pet Adoption Center” opened Thursday afternoon in West Los Angeles.
Doors opened at noon at the 11,000 square-foot center, located at 1845 Pontius Ave.
“All pets are up-to-date on vaccinations, microchipped, spayed or neutered and ready to go home,” NKLA officials said on Facebook. “All adoptions come with a free pet ID tag, one month of pet insurance, a collar, a leash for dogs and a carrier for cats.”
No-Kill Los Angeles, a coalition of animal welfare organizations, city shelters and volunteers, is an organization dedicated to ending the killing of healthy and treatable pets by providing spay and neutering services to increase adoptions.
“We’ve been able to reduce the number of shelter death number by 4,000 in the first year of NKLA,” Mark Peralta told KNX1070’s Megan Goldsby.
“Please still go to city shelters, but we want to make it easy for people to come and find one of these animals,” he said.
NKLA facilitated more than 23,000 adoptions in 2012, according to their website.
