Lots to cheer about at the NKLA Super Adoption

Last weekend was very good one for hundreds of cats and dogs in Los Angeles. That’s because they all found homes at the NKLA Super Adoption, presented by BOBS from Skechers®, held May 19 and 20 at Warner Ranch Park in Woodland Hills.

Best Friends hosted the two-day event as part of our No-Kill Los Angeles (NKLA) initiative, which featured animals from shelters and rescue groups. Pets of all shapes and sizes were ready to meet their new families under blue California skies.  

Super adoptions are always a lot of fun, and this one was no exception. Hundreds of attendees came to the event and cheered whenever a cat or dog was adopted. (That’s a lot of cheers.)

Luckily, photographers were on the scene to capture all the celebrations and love connections. Here are some of our favorites.
