Easter is a celebration of rebirth and new life. And no one is more deserving of that opportunity than our best furry friends in animal shelters throughout the LA area. So instead of buying a bunny or chick for your kiddos this Easter, why not open your home and most importantly, your heart, to some incredible animals in need? If you and your tots are ready for the responsibility and oodles of unconditional love, consider these fabulous organizations (and super kissable faces).
Much Love Animal Rescue is a local, foster-based rescue for loving dogs and cats who are about to be euthanized at LA shelters due to overcrowding, illness and disease. The organization spays or neuters every animal that’s brought in and provides required inoculations and microchipping, so they’re ready to go home with your family right away. Prospective owners usually attend adoption events to meet their bundles of love, then submit an application in person or online. If a match is made, the staff follows up with a home check to make sure everything is a go. For every animal that’s adopted, Much Love is able to save another little soul from a shelter.
