Prepare to Open Your Hearts and Homes

Mark your calendars for June 1, California’s first-ever Adopt-a-Pet Day, a heartwarming initiative that aims to find loving homes for countless deserving animals. Over 150 animal shelters across the state will join forces to celebrate this special day, organized by CalAnimals and supported by the prestigious ASPCA and San Francisco SPCA.

The Power of United Paws

“Shelters are the heartbeat of our communities, bridging the gap between families and their furry companions,” emphasized Dr. Jennifer Scarlett, CEO of the SF SPCA. “Now, we eagerly seek the public’s support. By uniting, we can transform the lives of thousands of animals in our state. Californians are renowned for their warmth and empathy, and California Adopt-a-Pet Day is a testament to that spirit.”

Adoption Made Easy

For those eager to adopt a pet, the organizers have generously covered the adoption fees for numerous animals. Moreover, all dogs and cats will receive essential care, including spaying or neutering, vaccination, and microchipping. This ensures that they arrive in their new homes ready to thrive and bring joy.

Locate Your Furry Destiny

Interested individuals can embark on the path to pet ownership by utilizing an interactive tool that pinpoints participating shelters nearby. With multiple shelters operating at double their capacity, including six in Los Angeles, finding a furry companion has never been more accessible.

  1. Paw-sitive Impact: Opening your home to an animal in need not only brings immense joy to both parties but also alleviates overcrowding in shelters, creating a positive cycle of rescue and adoption.
  2. A Safe Haven: Shelters provide sanctuary for animals, offering them shelter, food, and medical attention while they await their forever homes.
  3. Community Spirit: Adopt-a-Pet Day strengthens the bond between our communities and the animals within them, fostering a sense of shared responsibility and compassion.
