LDCC visits NKLA (No-Kill Los Angeles) and we had our minds blown!
The very awesome people at NKLA (that's No Kill Los Angeles), an initiative of The Best Friends Animal Society, invited us to check out their facility in Santa Monica and take some photos of a few of their lovely, very adoptable pups.
Let's start off by saying their facility is a AH-MAZE-ING! It looks more like a pet hotel than a shelter. And can we please follow that up by saying the animals their are even more AH-MAZE-ING! I mean, talk about completely dismantling the idea of rescue animals being unkempt, unhappy, and unloved.
The cats and dogs we saw looked calm, relaxed, and oh-so-happy!
The three pups we were so very fortunate to meet and dress up for a little photoshoot were Trixie, Leo, and Monty.
Trixie was not only beautiful, she was so sweet. She just wanted to curl up right next to you and sit in your lap. Don't believe me? Check out the photo of her and LDCC partner Paul, sharing a special moment together!
Leo was a happy boy, but had a calm demeanor about him. You sensed he was royalty in a previous life, because he just carried himself very regally.
And finally Monty, who had enough energy to fill the entire building! He was ready to go exploring and play fetch and swim and chase squirrels and lick faces and tug rope--all at once! He would be a great pup for the active type we just know it.
Short as our time was, we absolutely loved every minute of it, and are so glad that we donate to BFAS, because the work they do is truly amazing, and the support services they provide to rescue groups in Los Angeles--(and across the entire country, we're sure)--is invaluable.
If you're looking to adopt a cat or dog, or you know someone who is, please direct them to BFAS or NKLA. Sometimes they even have specials, lowering adoption fees to try and give every pet a real shot at being adopted. We could not be any more proud to donate to such a great charity, and we hope you get a chance to visit them yourselves!
