Microchip Saves Dog, Sadie

Collar: $4.79.  ID Tag: $11.99.  Pet microchip: Priceless.
While microchipping your pet isn’t actually free (although registration can be!), it is a fairly cheap and easy ‘procedure’ that helps ensure your companion can get home quickly if ever lost. Not only is it safe for your pet, but it also helps ensure a level of identification that a collar or ID tag can’t always provide. Your pet’s microchip won’t fall off, it won’t break, and you won’t even notice it’s there! So besides costing anywhere between $20-50, it really is priceless.

Adopt Two Kittens and Save Twice the Lives!


Kitten Foster

Did you know that cats are the number one euthanized pets in our animal shelters? According to ASPCA statistics, “of cats entering shelters, approximately 37% are adopted, 41% are euthanized, and less than 5% who come in as strays are returned to their owners.” At Adopt & Shop, we want to change those numbers, so for a limited time, we are offering two kittens for one adoption fee and 50% off adult cats.
Why Adopt Two Kittens?

Here in Southern California, with our mild climate and overabundant stray cat population, we have an extended season that traditionally picks up in March and continues all the way through October.
It was, therefore, no surprise to the Adopt & Shop Kitten Foster Project team when we received our first call of the season from a shelter partner at the beginning of February. They had just received a heavily pregnant female cat,…

Preventing Dog Bites: What You (and Your Kids) Need to Know


kids with dog

Every year about 4.7 million people are bitten by dogs. Among these, most are children. As a parent, you can reduce this risk by teaching your children smart behavior around dogs. Laying the groundwork early will go a long way towards preventing dog bites and keeping your family (and your dog) safe. Here are some basics.

  • Never leave a young child unsupervised with a dog. This goes for any dog, including your family dog. Until you are 100% certain that your child is old enough to understand dog behavior and demonstrate good judgment, you should oversee all contact.
  • Never interact …

    @petuniapit stopped by!

    On May 2nd and 3rd, one of the most highly-anticipated adoption events of the year took place in LA: the NKLA Super Adoption Weekend. Over one weekend every May and November, Best Friends Animal Society Los Angeles hosts local rescue groups and shelters at the La Brea Tar Pits in order to help some of the area’s thousands of homeless pets get adopted into loving homes.
