The ASPCA and CalAnimals have organized the first ever California Adopt-a-Pet Day on June 1st.

The statewide adoption day will feature more than 150 animal welfare sites offering free adoptions throughout the state. The goal is to find loving homes for an estimated 2-thousand sheltered pets. The ASPCA will be providing funds to cover the cost of free adoptions at participating shelters including many in the Inland Empire.

California Adopt-a-Pet Day is designed to raise awareness about the significant overcrowding issues facing shelters across the state. Shelters have experienced a huge influx in animals in recent years due to a severe statewide shortage of veterinary professionals and other factors, such as inflation and pet-friendly housing restrictions.
