Pick your own price on Pit Bull adoption fees this weekend
Los Angeles, CA – Bust out your party hats! Long Beach Animal Care Services (LBACS) and Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals Los Angeles (spcaLA) are having a Pittie Party this weekend with “Pick Your Own Price” adoption fees for qualified adopters. The Pittie Party is Saturday and Sunday, April 14th and 15th from 10am to 4pm at the PD Pitchford Companion Animal Village & Education Center, 7700 E. Spring St., in Long Beach.
“Adoptable Pit Bulls get passed over – breed restrictions, misconceptions, and size make adoption an uphill battle for these pups,” said spcaLA President Madeline Bernstein. “Lately, we’ve been seeing more and more Pit Bulls coming in, so we did what anyone would do: we threw ourselves a Pittie Party.”
spcaLA and LBACS have been finding collaborative, creative ways to help animals for nearly two decades. spcaLA and LBACS have co-hosted pet adoption events, an intergalactic open house complete with roller-skating Princess Leia’s, rock-and-roll dog walks and much more at the Village. This weekend’s “Pick Your Own Price” Pittie Party is the first Pit Bull focused event the groups have hosted. Qualified adopters can pick their own price from 1 dollar to 1 million dollars when adding a participating Pit Bull to their family this weekend.
“My hope is that the Pittie Party helps us find homes for some of our long-term residents, while at the same time showing what great pets Pit Bulls can be when adopted by responsible pet owners” said Ted Stevens, Manager of LBACS.
The “Pick Your Own Price” Pittie Party is available to qualified adopters. All potential adopters must fill out an application, and meet adoption guidelines. Adoption requirements and guidelines are available for view at spcaLA.com
Built in 2001, the Village is public/private partnership between LBACS and spcaLA. The Village revolutionized the way shelters are designed and built in the United States, setting a replicable benchmark in cost-effective, life-preserving care for abandoned and abused animals.
Not only can visitors to the Village adopt animals and find lost pets, but they may also renew and purchase dog and cat licenses; take dog training classes; board and/or groom pets; purchase pet supplies; and volunteer.
