LOS ANGELES (CNS) — The Paula Kent Meehan Pet Care Foundation is sponsoring an LA Animal Services adoption event Saturday and Sunday to seek homes for pit bulls, which will be available at a $50 discount, and cats and kittens, with fees waived for all felines.

Pit bulls and dogs that resemble pit bulls will be available at a $50 discount. Adoption fees for dogs over 4 months old are normally $102 or $122, and $150 for puppies.

Cat adoption fees will be waived by the foundation, and kitten adoption fees will be waived through a grant from the American Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals.


"The Pitty-Kitty adoption event provides people with the opportunity to adopt pit bull terriers, cats and kittens as lovable pets who can provide both physical and mental health benefits," said Bill Crowe, director of the Paula Kent Meehan Pet Care Foundation.

"There are many great dogs and cats in our centers just waiting to enhance your life," said Brenda Barnette, LA Animal Services general manager. "This event is a perfect time to adopt."
