NKLA Adoption Weekend 2013 (3:02)
The first annual NKLA Adoption Weekend was held May 3-5th at the La Brea Tar Pits in Los Angeles and over 400 animals found homes! The event brought together 50 rescue groups, shelters and more than 1,000 adoptable pets to help make Los Angeles into NKLA—No-Kill Los Angeles. Led by Best Friends Animal Society, NKLA is a coalition of animal rescue organizations, city shelters and passionate individuals dedicated to ending the killing of healthy and treatable pets in L.A. shelters. The plan is straightforward. Provide spay/neuter services where they are needed most so fewer animals go into shelters, and increase adoptions through the combined efforts of the NKLA coalition so more animals come out of the shelters and go into new homes. Best Friends Animal Society is a nonprofit organization building no-kill programs and partnerships that will bring about a day when there are No More Homeless Pets®. At the core of Best Friends' work is the dream that one day kindness will replace cruelty and animals will no longer be destroyed because they are unwanted or imperfect. Spaying and neutering will be the rule for all pets and adoption will be the first option for everyone. Making this dream a reality is the mission we call No More Homeless Pets. The society's leading initiatives in animal care and community programs are coordinated from its Kanab, Utah, headquarters, the country's largest no-kill sanctuary. This work is made possible by the personal and financial support of a grassroots network of supporters and community partners across the nation. For more information, visit
