The 16th Annual Bow-Wows & Meows Pet Fair is scheduled to take place this Sunday, Oct. 9, where more than 250 cats and dogs will be available for adoption. The County of Los Angeles Department of Animal Care and Control (DACC) will be participating in the event and will have all seven animal care centers bringing cats and dogs for adoption. This year’s pet fair will take place from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. at William S. Hart Park.
Adoption fees will be discounted to $30 for dogs and cats will be free. A veterinary team will be on hand at the event to answer any questions. Every County pet is spayed or neutered, immunized, micro-chipped, and ready to take home that day. Fair organizers are hoping to break last year’s record number of 200 adoptions.
“We are so excited to be having another Bow-Wows & Meows adoptions event. Since its inception, this event has found new homes for over 2,000 animals,” said DACC Director Marcia Mayeda. “We hope to add to this enormous success by finding homes for all the pets on Sunday and are very grateful to the organizers of this event for this opportunity.”
The family friendly event is free to the public and well-behaved dogs are welcome to attend but must be on a leash. You are advised not to bring any cats to the event due to the nearby streets, hillsides, and dogs in attendance but there will be plenty available for adoption. Free shuttled parking will be available once you enter through the main park entrance gates.
Other activities this year include high-flying canines catching Frisbees, The Famous Fun Dog Show, raffles, food trucks, pet supply vendors, two adopt-a-pet parades, and more.
