If you’re on the market for a new dog, then this weekend might be the perfect time to take the puppy plunge.
All 6 shelters in LA have waived their adoption fees. Part of the reason is that the shelters get packed with pups who run away during fireworks on the 4th of July.
This campaign by Los Angeles Animal Services announced its "4 Days 4 Life" campaign from Friday to Sunday and on Tuesday, july 3rd. Shelters will be closed Monday.
"LA Animal Services pets are vaccinated, spayed or neutered, and microchipped," according to the department's website.
The agency said that ahead of the 4th of July holiday, their shelters are packed with dogs who have run away from home, frightened by the loud sounds of fireworks.
They're also encouraging people to sign up to foster lost pets.
The funding during the days of free dogs comes from a grant provided by CBS EcoMedia Inc., which utilizes corporate advertising to help nonprofits.
