Looking to adopt a pet? You should have checked out the Dog-Gone Cat-Astrophy Adoptathon last weekend at the East Valley Animal Shelter in North Hollywood. Missed it? No worries. The Los Angeles Animal Services Department now keeps city shelters open on weekends. The schedule makes sense: Most would-be pet owners can’t make it to shelters during the week. They have jobs; their kids have school. Opening up the shelters on weekends helps facilitate adoptions, which is good for the animals, the owners and the city alike. It should also help to cut down on the number of animals euthanized at city shelters.
