Last month, a very special initiative was launched in Los Angeles – NKLA (No-Kill Los Angeles)
This initiative is another to help achieve the goal of the Best Friends Animal Society: No More Homeless Pets.
NKLA’s website says “We are a coalition of animal welfare organizations, city shelters and passionate individuals. Led by Best Friends Animal Society, we’re dedicated to ending the killing of healthy and treatable pets in L.A. shelters. Our plan is straightforward. Provide spay/neuter services where they are needed most so fewer animals go into shelters, and increase adoptions through the combined efforts of the NKLA coalition so more animals come out of the shelters and go into new homes.”
In 2011, over 17,000 adoptable animals were euthanised in the Los Angeles area – so the need is great.
If you live in the Los Angeles area and are an animal lover, perhaps you should consider assisting the NKLA movement by donating money, fostering, or adopting.
