Anyone in Los Angeles County looking to adopt a loving pet during the holiday season is in luck.
Seventeen local animal shelters will be participating in Whisker Wonderland, a county-wide adoption event. The event, hosted by the Found Animals Foundation, is the largest single-day adoption event in L.A. and features discounted adoption fees.
Each year, Found Animals hosts a multi-shelter adoption event in the Spring and Winter.
Last year’s Winter adoption event, Happy Pawlidays, was greatly successful with 439 animals finding homes in a single day. This year, the goal is to get at least 500 pets adopted in 7 hours, according to Found Animals.
Shelters will be open from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Saturday with Found Animals volunteers on hand to help match pets with potential owners.
