Pet Super Adoptions

L.A. Super Adoption - happy dogsLooking for a new best friend?

At the Best Friends Pet Super Adoption, hundreds of adorable dogs, cats, puppies, kittens and bunnies will be available for adoption from local shelters and rescue groups.

What is a Pet Super Adoption?
It’s a cooperative effort where shelters and rescue groups come together in a free, fun, festival-like atmosphere to find homes for hundreds of animals during one exciting weekend. It’s a fun way to meet a huge variety of adoptable animals in a celebratory setting.

What to expect at the pet adoption events
Expect to have a lot of fun, and to meet a huge number of precious animals.

Each participating rescue group and shelter at the event will have their own adoption application, interview process, and adoption fees. Adoption fees help cover costs like spay/neuter and updated vaccinations, as well as any critical medical costs. So if you might adopt an animal – and we hope you will – we recommend coming prepared with a valid form of identification, payment method, and ideally a letter of permission/reference from your landlord if you rent your home. Please note that all of the shelters and many of the participating groups offer same-day adoptions; however, some groups require home checks as part of their application process.
