Animal Love: Adopt a Pet at LA Love and Leashes Adoption Olympics

Before you
Dear reader, we're asking you to help us keep local news available for all. Your tax-deductible financial support keeps our stories free to read, instead of hidden behind paywalls. We believe when reliable local reporting is widely available, the entire community benefits. Thank you for investing in your neighborhood.

Here's a better way to celebrate the Olympics than sitting on your couch eating Cheetos and cheering on Ryan Lochte: Get out there and adopt a pet.

Local adoption agency LA Love and Leashes is hosting their first annual Adoption Olympics this Saturday, August 4, from 12:00 p.m. - 3:00 p.m. at the Westside Pavillion. The afternoon will feature dogs and cats available for adoption, an agility course, and an Olympic podium upon which to photograph your pet.

A pet behaviorist will also be available onsite.
