Adopt a Pet. Save a life.
Shelter animals aren't broken, they've just been dealt a tough hand. Your willingness to bring one home gives them the new lease on life they deserve.
Where can I adopt my new pet?
Visit the NKLA Pet Adoption Center in West Los Angeles (1845 Pontius Ave, 90025) featuring over 100 dogs and cats of all kinds from featured NKLA Coalition partners. Learn more and view adoptable pets.
What if my new pet isn’t spayed or neutered?
You’ll want to get it done as soon as possible. Information about low-cost spay/neuter services in your area is available by visiting our spay/neuter resource page.
Will my new pet get along with the pet I already have?
We encourage introducing your new pet to the pet or pets who are already part of your family.

Take the lead
If your new pet isn't trained to walk on a leash, it's a good idea to get a chest harness or a slip collar.
Make your yard safe
Do a walk around your yard. Is your yard completely fenced in?
