Free Adoptions for First Ever Adopt-A-Pet Day


Visalia Animal Services is celebrating the first Adopt-a-Pet Day in California on Saturday, June 1 with free adoptions and special, extended hours.

“We are proud to be joining the first ever California Adopt-a-Pet Day,” said Candace Harrington, Animal Services Manager, City of Visalia. “We work year-round with our community to find loving homes for animals and to raise awareness about the issues of overcrowding in animal shelters, but this is a special day for everyone involved.”

California Adopt-a-Pet Day is a statewide initiative, taking place on Saturday, June 1, that will feature more than 170 California animal welfare organizations offering free adoptions at their shelters or out in their communities.

The Visalia Animal Care Center will be open from 8 a.m. to 2 p.m. on Saturday, June 1 for the event with pets looking for their forever homes. All adoption fees will be waived.

California Adopt-a-Pet Day is being managed by CalAnimals, an organization that focuses on the success of California animal welfare and sheltering organizations in meeting the needs of animals and people in their communities, and is supported by the San Francisco Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals.

The initiative is also supported by the American Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals which is providing funds to cover the cost of free adoptions at participating shelters.

The Visalia Animal Care Center is located at 29016 CA-99, Visalia, CA 93277. For questions or more information, contact the Care Center at (559) 713-4700.
