Save a Life on Sunday
After the Guinness buzz wears off, after the shamrock foam fades away, after all your St. Patty’s festivities have come to an end, you will have a chance to save a life.
What: Pet Adoption Festival
When: Sunday, 11am – 4pm
Where: Johnny Carson Park off Bob Hope Dr. in Burbank
Why: 19,263 un-adopted dogs & cats were euthanized last year in Los Angeles
Over 60 rescue organizations are working together to make this the largest pet adoption event in California…and admission is free! From dogs and cats to bunnies and beyond, this event will give over 1,000 animals the chance to steal your heart. Open it up, let them in. St. Patrick would approve.
