Pasadena Humane hopes to empty the kennels on July 17

Pasadena Humane will hold a “Free Adoption Day” on Saturday, July 17. Adoption fees for all available animals—including dogs, cats, rabbits, birds, pocket pets and reptiles—will be waived. The shelter, located at 361 S. Raymond Avenue in Pasadena, will be opening its doors for adoptions from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m.

As the shelter fills to capacity during the warmer months, it is important to find new homes for pets as quickly as possible. Kitten season is in full swing and the shelter is seeing greater numbers of cats and kittens come through its doors compared to 2020.

“Now is the perfect time to adopt your next pet,” said Dia DuVernet, President & CEO of Pasadena Humane. “Our shelter is full of wonderful dogs, cats and critters waiting for new homes.”

The upcoming Free Adoption Day marks the return of adoption events at Pasadena Humane. This will be the first large in-person event since the beginning of the pandemic.

All dogs and cats adopted from Pasadena Humane are spayed/neutered, microchipped and have received age-appropriate vaccines. New adopters will receive a complimentary health and wellness exam, as well as a packet filled with information about how to care for your pet.

The event is open to residents of any city looking to adopt a pet. No adoption appointment is necessary. Regular adoption screening applies. Free onsite parking. Overflow parking is available at Del Mar Station for a fee.

Following current CDC guidelines, face masks will be required in all indoor areas regardless of vaccinations status.
