Categories: In the News

Make a shelter pet’s life merrier this holiday season. Adopt your new best friend at the Pasadena Humane Society. On Thursday, December 14, Pasadena Humane joins forces with KTLA for Take 5 to Care, a day-long $5 pet adoption event.

The $5 adoption fee will apply to all available pets, including dogs, cats, rabbits and other critters. Each adoption includes the spay/neuter surgery, a microchip and up-to-date vaccines for dogs and cats. After adopting, visitors can head over to the shelter’s retail store to pick up food and other supplies for their adopted pet. Gift certificates and gifts for pet lovers are also available.

“This year, we want all the animals in our care to spend the holidays in a new home,” said Julie Bank, President and CEO of the Pasadena Humane Society & SPCA. “A huge thank you to KTLA for helping animals get adopted and for their general support of our programs, services, and events.”

Take 5 to Care is KTLA 5’s year-round commitment to engage, educate and involve Southern California individuals and families with matters that affect the community. This year marks the third time the TV station has partnered with Pasadena Humane to increase pet adoptions around the holidays. KTLA 5 News will be broadcasting live from the Pasadena Humane Society for the morning news.

“We are thrilled to partner with the Pasadena Humane Society in our shared commitment to shelter pets this holiday season!  What better way to celebrate the spirit of giving than to help find a forever home for every pet in need!!” said Adrianne Anderson, Vice President of Creative Services at KTLA 5.
