THE STORY:

There are thousands of homeless pets at Los Angeles-area animal shelters waiting for a home of their own. Shelter Me, Bark Avenue Foundation, ABC7 and the Los Angeles County Animal Care Foundation are partnering for the first “Sleepover at the Shelter” at the County of Los Angeles, Downey Animal Care Center on June 12th.

"Sleepover at the Shelter” is an innovative event to raise awareness, increase adoptions of homeless pets and raise money to provide free spay-neuter to pets in underserved communities.

A group of volunteers will stay at the Downey Animal Care Center over a 24-hour period beginning on Friday, June 12th at 11 a.m. to bring attention to shelter pets waiting to be adopted.

Volunteers will stay in three separate "kennels," which are fenced in play yards adjacent to the dog kennels. Similar to a 10K run/walk, the public can pledge money for the number of hours a volunteer stays in a kennel.

The goal is to raise $30,000, which will provide 400 free spay-neuter surgeries, microchips and vaccinations for pets of families in the communities served by the Downey Animal Care Center. In many of these areas, less than 10 percent of the pets are sterilized.

"Sleepover at the Shelter" will culminate with a fun adoption event at the Downey Animal Care Center on Saturday, June 13th (11258 South Garfield Ave., Downey, CA 90242). Dogs, cats and rabbits will be available for adoption.
