Diamonds last forever but they don’t cuddle you or protect your home. And while a pet might end up costing thousands over a lifetime, they require very little startup capital. Does all this make a pet the perfect Valentines Day Gift in 2022? The Paula Kent Meehan Pet Care Foundation thinks so.

Get ready to fall in love with one of our amazing four-legged friends

The Paula Kent Meehan Pet Care Foundation will sponsor the My Furry Valentine adoption event happening at six LA Animal Services Centers on Saturday, February 12 and Sunday, February 13. During the My Furry Valentine weekend, the adoption fees for all dogs will be reduced by $50, which does not include the $20 license fee. Adoption fees for cats will be waived by the Paula Kent Meehan Pet Care Foundation and adoption fees for kittens will be waived through a generous grant from the ASPCA.

“Get ready to fall in love with one of our amazing four-legged friends during the My Furry Valentine event,” said Dana Brown, General Manager for LA Animal Services. “Dogs and cats adopted from LA Animal Services join their new families already spayed or neutered, vaccinated, and microchipped.”

“It is our goal to find a home for every pet that’s in the LA City Shelters,” said Bill Crowe, Director of The Paul Kent Meehan Pet Care Foundation. He continued, “Now is the perfect time to find your new love!”
