Yet Another Innovative program from LAAS

Can you imagine Stuckey or Greenwalt being able to put this event together? Imagine, partnerships with Amanda and Best Friends as well Downtown Dogs. How many who were General Manager candidates a year ago could have carried this off?..
December 6 and 10, 2006
LA Animal Services is participating in the national “Project Homeless Connect Day” by hosting a two-day called, “Project Canine Connect”. The first event will be held on December 6, 2006 from 10:00 a.m. – 3:00 p.m. on 6th Street between Wall and San Pedro. LA Animal Services will provide free vaccinations, microchips and flea treatments to downtown area low income and homeless residents’ pets.
At this event, LA Animal Services will take appointments for free spay/neuter and/or grooming for low income and homeless residents’ animals on the second day of the event, Sunday December 10, 2006 at this same location.

On December 10th, 2006 from 10:00 a.m. – 3:00 p.m. LA Animal Services will again offer free vaccinations, microchips and flea treatments. LA Animal Services is partnering with the Amanda Foundation to perform the sterilization surgeries. Appointments must be made at the December 6, 2006 event. Mobile groomers will be there to provide the residents’ dogs and cats free grooming. Professional dog trainers will also be there to offer free advice.

In partnership with Downtown Dogs and Best Friends Animal Society, LA Animal Services will be giving away dog and cat goody bags which include: dog food, toys, dishes, bones, flea treatment, collars, brushes and many other items at both events.

What a great idea!!! The homeless need these services, they do "rescue" animals, mostly those that no one wants. This idea needs to be carried to other cities as well.
