$11 Adoptions at LA/SPCA This Friday

This is a photo of my sweet Peggy Sue. I adopted her from the LA SPCA last month and she has added so much joy to my life since she moved in. If you or anyone you know is thinking about getting a dog or cat, please consider adopting from the SPCA and give a homeless animal a home. This Friday all adoptions are only $11.00. Details below.


11/11/11 is a unique date and will be celebrated in a unique way at the Louisiana SPCA (LA/SPCA). All cats, dogs, kittens and puppies available for adoption will have an $11 adoption fee. Normally $80 or $150, the one day fee reduction will encourage adopters to make the trip to the LA/SPCA Animal Rescue and Care Center to find a new forever friend. The adoption fee covers spay/neuter surgery, all vaccinations, rabies tag and license, and a bag of dog or cat food.

The LA/SPCA’s Animal Rescue and Care center can hold 350 animals at any given time. Animals are brought to the LA/SPCA by the public or through our Animal Control operations. Last week (from 10/31/11 – 11/7/11) the LA/SPCA received 180 animals at the Animal Rescue and Care Center and placed 33 animals in forever homes. In an attempt to make room for the hundreds of animals the LA/SPCA receives each month the LA/SPCA has planned this special adoption promotion.

“The LA/SPCA staff will screen potential adopters carefully during this promotion to be sure these will be good homes,” explains Ana Zorrilla LA/SPCA CEO. “Our goal is to place the many wonderful cats and dogs in our care and alleviate the space crunch that we continue to experience.”

To add a twist, any potential adopter walking into the Animal Care and Rescue Center from 11am-12noon will receive a special adoption survey. These adopters will have the entire adoption fee waived – Free adoptions from 11am-12noon on 11/11/11!

The LA/SPCA’s goal is to place 111 animals in new homes by the end of the day. Adoptions open at 10am. Animals will be adopted on a first come first serve basis, so get there early. All puppies, kittens, dogs and cats are eligible for the special pricing. No holds will be placed on any animals throughout the day, so be sure to bring all the required materials for adoption including documentation that your property owner allows pets, and bring any other family members and dogs that live in your household so everyone can meet the pet you are considering adopting.

The LA/SPCA wants to get the word out to adopt don’t shop when picking your next pet. There are hundreds of animals waiting for you every day at your local animal shelter. For more information about this and other adoption programs at the LA/SPCA, visit us online at
