To support Los Angeles Animal Services’ mission to promote and protect the health, safety and welfare of animals, BOBS from Skechers and Petco Love are hosting a pet adoption event on April 9.
From 10 a.m. to 2 p.m., cats and dogs from Los Angeles Animal Services will be available for adoption at the Skechers located at 19000 S. Vermont Ave. in Gardena.
Those who already have pets are invited to bring their cats and dogs for an on-site mobile vaccination clinic provided by Spay Neuter Project of Los Angeles. The mobile vaccination clinic will offer a variety of services at low cost, including vaccinations (rabies, de-wormer, leptospirosis and canine influenza), DA2PP/Bordetella, FVCRP, microchips, nail trims and flea/tick treatment. Walk-ins only.
BOBS from Skechers is teaming up with partner Petco Love, a national nonprofit working to lead and inspire change for animals, to encourage animal adoptions by hosting events at Skechers retail stores across the country in conjunction with animal welfare partner organizations affiliated with Petco Love. These animal adoption events are the latest in Skechers’ commitment to help save and support shelter pets. Skechers donates funds through purchases of its diverse collection of BOBS shoes, apparel and accessories. To date, the company has contributed $7.65 million, funds that have helped save and support more than 1.5 million shelter dogs and cats in the U.S. and Canada.
“We established BOBS for Dogs to save animals in need, and bringing adoption events to our Skechers stores through local shelters like Los Angeles Animal Services allows us to extend the lifesaving work we’re undertaking with Petco Love,” says Michael Greenberg, president of Skechers. “We hope that at the end of the day, this is a win for these deserving animals and their devoted pet families who are about to start their journey together.”
“Pets are a lovely addition to your life and your family,” says Annette Ramirez, Interim General Manager for Los Angeles Animal Services. “We are pleased to partner with BOBS from Skechers and Petco Love who share in our mission to help pets find their new homes.”
