Bow-wows and Meows Find New Homes

More than 150 shelter dogs and cats found homes during the 10th annual Bow-Wows & Meows Pet Fair held recently at Newhall’s William S. Hart Park.  Six Los Angeles County shelters participated at the fair, which offered $30 adoptions that included spay or neuter, vaccinations, and microchipping for each adopted pet.

According to Charlie Watson, an animal control officer with Lancaster Shelter, participation at Bow-Wows & Meows was a very positive experience.

“I love this event. I love to see our dogs get a nice home,” Watson said. “People get to come and see all these different dogs without them being cooped up. People get to see how the dog acts with them and their family.”

Patricia Slattery, of Newhall, and her boyfriend Jessie Hernandez were particularly taken with a year-old female Chihuahua available for adoption through the Downey Shelter.
