A new, innovative retail pet adoption center opening this month in Lakewood will showcase shelter animals in a bright, fun, one-stop-shop for potential pet owners – with goals to significantly increase the number of animals adopted and improve the public’s perception of pet adoption.
Los Angeles-based nonprofit group, Found Animals, has built Adopt & Shop, their first-ever retail pet adoption center at The Lakewood Center Mall. The store will feature cats, dogs, rabbits and other animals available for adoption along with basic pet supplies and specialty items. All of the pets will come from one of Found Animals’ shelter partners, the Southeast Area Animal Control Authority (SEAACA) in Downey. Highly trained adoption counselors will help customers find a new furry family member that perfectly matches with their preference and lifestyle. All Adopt & Shop pets will be sterilized, vaccinated and microchipped and will go home with resources and support to ensure a successful integration into the household.
