An spcaLA pet shelter which first opened in 1949 (when well-known animal lover Doris Day cut the ceremonial opening ribbon – RIP Doris!) is reopening shelter operations after ceasing in the early 2000’s to serve as a spay/neuter center, emergency animal housing and training center. After an exhaustive rehab, it will be the only shelter servicing West Adams, Mid-City, Baldwin Hills, and outlying neighborhoods of Culver City and Downtown Los Angeles.
Says spcaLA President, Madeline Bernstein, “They don’t make them like this anymore. The ‘bones’ of the facility, no pun intended, are in excellent condition and the craftsmanship is unparalleled. We are excited to share this new adoption resource with the community.”
The spcaLA Pet Adoption Center will have a Grand Opening on Saturday, July 20th, featuring $25 pet adoption fees for qualified adopters, Hijo De Su Madre plant based food truck, Quality Mutt Coffee Cart, music, giveaways, and more. The Center is located at 5026 W. Jefferson Blvd. The hours of operation will be 10am-5pm Wednesday – Sunday. For more information, visit spcaLA.
