Best Friends Animal Society is putting on the #Freedom100 Adoption Marathon over the July 4 holiday weekend, with the aim of finding homes for 100-plus cats and dogs.

From July 3-5, Best Friends and NKLA will hold the event in two locations. Pet adoptions will be given for $10 for the first 100 pets adopted at Best Friends’ Mission Hills location, and NKLA’s West L.A. location will have $10 for kittens and cats and $25 for select dogs for 100 pets.

In addition, every pet comes spayed or neutered, microchipped and vaccinated. Adopters will receive a free bag of food and one month of free pet insurance, and there’s an on-site boutique to pick up the essentials for your new pet.

Best Friends Animal Society is an animal welfare organization dedicated to ending the killing of healthy, adoptable pets. NKLA (No Kill Los Angeles) is a coalition of such organizations as well as city shelters and individuals, which is led by Best Friends for the same cause. You can see their adoptable cats here and dogs here.

Best Friends Pet Adoption Center is located at 15321 Brand Boulevard in Mission Hills; their phone number is 818-643-3989. NKLA Pet Adoption Center is at 1845 Pontius Avenue in Los Angeles; their number is 424-208-8840.

Fourth of July at Amoeba Hollywood: Food, Prizes & Tunes

Posted by Rachael McGovern, July 4, 2012 04:00pm | Post a Comment
Fourth of July started out overcast and slightly cool in Hollywood, but by about 12:15pm the clouds burned off and the sun came shining through, just in time for the festivities to start at Amoeba Hollywood. We strategically hid "golden tickets" in plastic easter eggs around the store, each filled with a prize such as a free Amoeba gift certificate, free chair massage by our go-to masseuse Terrence, free caricatures from Rene and April, or a free Amoeba t-shirt. Not to mention lots and lots of coupons for free ice cream and free hot dogs, courtesy of two food trucks visiting Amoeba today: Dogtown Dogs and The Good Times Ice Cream Truck.

Our own DJ Continental Song-gress spun records in the afternoon, providing the star-spangled soundtrack for our busy shoppers taking advantage of the last day of our massive poster sale and hunting for golden tickets.

Hollywood closes early tonight (at 7pm) but we'll be back open on Thursday, July 5 at 10:30am. Have a happy and safe holiday!

Some "Cut & Run" types think it's ok to celebrate such other July 4th holidays such as:

Filipino - American Friendship Day
Day of Agwe - Haiti
Birthday of Queen Sonja - Norway
Commemoration of Jewish Genocide - Latvia
Family Day - Lesotho
Fisherman's Day - Marshall Islands
Independence Day - Rwanda
