If you want to help pets get adopted, here’s your chance.
The Los Angeles Chapter of the Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals has partnered with a pet recruitment company for a week-long event to raise funds and help find permanent families dogs and other pets.
The animal rights association announced this week its partnership with PackHire.
As part of spcaLA’s April Adoption and Fundraising Week, the non-profit organization and PackHire – a job search engine and recruitment service specifically for the pet industry company – will be hosting a joint Instagram Live event on Monday, April 19 and April 26. and the two-week fundraising special will also last Monday through May 2.
“PackHire has aligned business with philanthropy to support a cause that comes naturally to it,” spcaLA President Madeline Bernstein said in a statement. “They have our gratitude for their donation, which helps support our programs and services.”
People can drop off gifts — unopened pet food, toys, blankets, litter, beds and treats — at the spcaLA South Bay Adoption Center, 12910 Yukon Ave., Hawthorne. Those interested in adopting a pet can view the animals and begin the process online: spcaLA.com.
The goal is to house at least five pets and raise $3,000 during the event. The money will go towards pet medical expenses, behavior training, vaccinations, neutering, and the purchase of much-needed pet food and supplies.
“Showing kindness and compassion to animals is one of the hallmarks of a healthy and vibrant community,” Seda Bolulu, founder of PackHire, said in a statement. “And the spcaLA has been a valued community partner and advocate in this space for over 140 years.
“That’s why,” Bolulu added, “we chose to team up with this amazing organization.”
