The NoHo Arts District dot Com team and our East Valley neighborhoods are animal lovers and we do our part to help raise awareness of homeless animals and pet adoptions. We even have our own pets blog by Sarah Serrano. When our local friends told us about the No-Kill Los Angeles (NKLA) Adoption Weekend, we knew we had to spread the word. Here’s the official Facebook invite you can use to pass the word to your family, friends, coworkers, chiropractor, manicurist, mechanic, neighbor, boss, employee, etc. On another note, if you can’t make it out to this adoption event, you can always go to the East Valley Animal Shelter to find your next furry love.
The NKLA Pet Adoption event is hosted by Best Friends® Animal Society in collaboration with: Banfield® | Cloud Star® | KONG® | Natural Balance Pet Foods® | Mammoth® Pet Products | PetSmart Charities® | Precious Cat Litter® | The Sound 100.3
WHEN: May 3 and May 4, 10am to 4pm
WHERE: La Brea Tarpits: 5801 Wilshire Blvd. Los Angeles CA 90036
Free Admission! You can select your new love from more than 1,000 dogs, cats, puppies and kittens from more than 50 Los Angeles rescues and shelters! ! Shelter adoption fees are as low as $25 and include spay/neuter, updated vaccinations, microchip and an adoption starter kit.
You’ll be surrounded by knowledgeable animal groups, dog and cat lovers, and there will be food trucks, vendors and fun! Most importantly, you can help turn L.A. into NKLA (No-Kill Los Angeles). Did you know that at the first NKLA Adoption Weekend last May more than 400 animals found homes? We here at nohoartsdistrict.com hope they beat that number. If you can't responsibly adopt a fur baby, then you can come out to the event and support, and have fun.
LittleFriendsPhoto Fan? UNDERWATER DOGS photographer, Seth Casteel, will sign his New York Times Best Selling book on SUNDAY MAY 4 from 10am-3pm! Books and calendars will be available for sale with proceeds to benefit Best Friends Animal Society.

If you live in Los Angeles, then you’ve likely seen the many stray or feral cats that roam the streets. Newborn kittens are so adorable and always in high demand, so unfortunately, other (usually older) cats in greater need of care are often left unattended. It’s heartbreaking to see, but there are ways to solve this problem and save many of their lives.
My name is Sky (ID# A1358453) and I am at the East Valley Animal Shelter located at 14409 Vanowen St, Van Nuys. I am a female, black and white Pit Bull Terrier. I am 11 months old and I want to live. I love children and other pets and most of all I would love a Mom and/or Dad.
