Adopt a New Pet During Free Adoption Day on July 16

PASADENA, Calif. (July 7, 2022) – – Pasadena Humane will hold a “Free Adoption Day” on Saturday, July 16, presented by Gabrielle Bruveris, to encourage community members to adopt a pet in need.

During the July 16 event, adoption fees will be waived for all available animals, including dogs, cats, rabbits, and critters. The shelter, located at 361 S. Raymond Avenue in Pasadena, will open its doors for adoptions from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. No appointment is needed.

“Summer is the busiest time of year for animals coming into the shelter,” said Dia DuVernet, President & CEO of Pasadena Humane. “We need our community’s help to find homes for all the wonderful pets waiting to be adopted.”

Last month’s Free Adoption Day event at Pasadena Humane resulted in 68 adoptions–12 dogs, 53 cats and three critters.

“We are so grateful to everyone who adopted during last month’s event, but the shelter is filling up again,” added DuVernet. “It’s critical that we find homes for the adoptable dogs, cats and critters at the shelter to make space for more pets in need.”

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

The event is open to residents of any city looking to adopt a pet. Regular adoption screening applies. Free onsite parking is available. Overflow parking is available at Del Mar Station for a fee.

The animal shelter plans to hold additional free adoption days and promotions throughout the summer months, including the Best Friends National Adoption weekend on July 22-24 featuring $50 adoptions for all adult dogs and cats.
