Our adoption centers

By adopting from the Best Friends Pet Adoption Center or the NKLA (No-Kill Los Angeles) Pet Adoption Center, you are changing the life of not only that pet, but also the life of a pet waiting for a home at one of our six Los Angeles City Shelters. For every new pet that finds a home, we go to our shelters and save another life. Both pet adoption centers have expert caregivers, trainers, and friendly adoption specialists on staff to help you find the pet that's perfect for you. Thanks for helping us Save Them All! 

  • All adoptable pets are up-to-date on vaccinations, microchipped, and spayed or neutered. 
  • Adopters receive a personalized pet ID tag, bag of Natural Balance pet food and one month of free pet insurance. 
  • Just bring your driver’s license or another valid form of ID, as well as a collar and leash or carrier (or purchase one on site), and your new best friend can go home with you today!
