Found Animal Foundation is having one of the largest adoption events in the state on December 17th from 10am to 5pm! Whisker Wonderland will include the participation of 17 different animal shelters in the Los Angeles area.  They will include City of Los Angeles Department of Animal services, Los Angeles County Department of Animal Care and Control, Southeast Area Animal Control Authority, Burbank Animal Shelter and Pasadena Humane Society.

There will be discounted adoption fees for the dogs and cats who are looking for warm forever homes this winter. What better time to add a new addition to the family than the holidays!  Enjoy “2 for you” kitty adoptions where the adoption fees are free for 1 kitty when you adopt 2! And cats get along better in pairs so they’ll have more fun with a pal to play with.

Adopters will receive special gifts too! Pet beds will be provided by the Ortho Mattress company who is making 500 beds for this event.  Adopters who don’t get to adopt the day of the event will get a voucher that can be redeemed at any Ortho Mattress location in Los Angeles.  Gift bags (courtesy of Hills Pet Nutrition) will also be given out full of free samples and coupons for products for you new furry friends!

So don’t miss out on this fun filled event.  Spread the word and encourage friends and family to attend so they can give a homeless animal the love and security they deserve. Head to any of the participating shelter locations on December 17th.
