Jefferson Parish animal shelters to host mobile pet adoption event


MANCHESTER, ENGLAND – JULY 27: Milly, a 13-week-old kitten waits with her brother Charlie (L) to be re-homed at The Society for Abandoned Animals Sanctuary in Sale, Manchester which is facing an urgent cash crisis and possible closure on July 27, 2010 in Manchester, England. The Society for Abandoned Animals exists entirely on public support and unless it can raise GBP 50,000 in the next couple of months it will have to close down. The registered charity started in 1967 and in the last five years alone the charity has rescued and found homes for more than 1,000 cats, 290 rabbits and 262 dogs. The rescue centre is one of the many who are suffering a downfall in donations due to the economic recession. (Photo by Christopher Furlong/Getty Images)

The Jefferson Parish SPCA and the Jefferson Parish Animal Shelter will host a mobile pet adoption event from Friday, March 20 until Friday, March 27 at both shelters.

Adoptions will be done by appointment only, and adoption fees for dogs and cats are $20. Those who adopt pets will receive giveaways from Purina, according to the Jefferson Parish Animal Shelter.

This joint event is part of the North Shore Animal League America’s 2020 Tour for Life, in which “shelters on wheels” adoption units will stop in 53 cities.
