What is Best Friends NKLA Super Adoption?

It’s a cooperative effort in which shelters and rescue groups come together in a free, fun, festival-like atmosphere to find homes for hundreds of animals. The participating shelters and rescue groups include members of the No-Kill Los Angeles (NKLA) Coalition, along with many other county shelters and other local animal welfare organizations. The event, usually held twice a year at the La Brea Tar Pits, is the continuation of programming that began in 1991 with the organization of innovative model programs that provide support for area shelters and rescue groups. In just 2 days during our Spring event last June (our first event at The Autry in Griffith Park), 679 dogs and cats (including a few bunnies) found homes as a result of our 7th NKLA Super Adoption. Plus, all of the shelter trucks went back empty with Best Friends, NKLA Coalition partners and rescue groups welcoming cats and dogs who did not get adopted over the weekend. VIEW PHOTOS FROM OUR SPRING 2016 SUPER ADOPTION HERE!

What to expect 
Expect to have a lot of fun and to meet hundreds of adorable, adoptable animals. Each participating rescue group and shelter at the event has its own adoption application, interview process and adoption fee structure. Adoption fees help cover costs such as spay/neuter, vaccinations and other medical needs. Please note that all participating shelters and many of the participating rescue groups offer same-day adoptions, but some groups require home checks as part of the application process. Potential adopters should come prepared with a valid form of identification and payment. If you’re a renter, it’s a good idea to have a letter from your landlord stating that you are allowed to have a pet.

Adopt one to help Save Them All. Thank you for joining us to help make L.A. a no-kill city!
