L.A. Love & Leashes Adoption Center Now Open In Santa Monica

Posted on Oct 15, 2015 , 0 comments

In addition to keeping pets happy and healthy, we also believe that all pets should have a safe, forever home. That’s why we’ve partnered with L.A. Love & Leashes (LAL&L), a volunteer-run 501(c)(3) nonprofit project of Friends of L.A. Animal Shelters, to open up our first in-store adoption center, which is located at our newly expanded Santa Monica location. Dogs and cats will be available for adoption six days-a-week! LAL&L will be closed on Tuesdays, but our store will maintain its normal business hours.

A "Pet Store" of Rescues

LAL&L is the first non-profit run “pet store” that is 100% dedicated to animals at L.A.’s city shelters. LAL&L is a “shelter shop” that exists solely to find homes for the dogs and cats at our city shelters and is funded by private grants and donations. Because of their unique location with Healthy Spot Santa Monica, they are able to reach large amounts of people who would not otherwise visit our city shelters.

Helping Pets Find Their Forever Home

The goals of LAL&L are to help save lives by finding homes for as many of the 50,000+ dogs and cats who enter our city shelters each year, to improve the public perceptions about animals waiting for homes in our city shelters, to change some of the still held negative stereotypes that “shelter animals” are in some way “bad” or “damaged” and to educate the public on the incredible joys and benefits of shelter adoptions.

Come In and Meet Your New Best Friend!

On September 25th we had our first in-store adoption through this partnership and have had 10 total adoptions in our first 3 weeks! Over the past 3 years, LA. Love & Leashes has found forever homes for nearly 1,400 dogs and cats and we expect even greater success with this new partnership. Next time you or a friend are looking for a new addition to the family remember to adopt, don’t shop, and bring home a pet in need from Healthy Spot Santa Monica and L.A. Love & Leashes!
