Animal-advocacy groups collaborating to offer lower-cost adoption in honor of Pride week

As a part of Pride Week and the Pre-Pride Festival events, Friends of Long Beach Animals (FOLBA) is partnering with Long Beach Lesbian & Gay Pride Inc., Long Beach Animal Care Services (LBACS) and spcaLA in offering reduced-cost adoptions at the P.D. Pitchfork Companion Animal Village for three days, through May 16. All adoption fees will be reduced by $50 to encourage placing homeless pets into loving, forever homes.
The four groups are collaborating to encourage pet adoptions, thus reducing the number of homeless animals in the LBACS shelter.
“Our theme ‘Reflections of Pride’ talks about our history, our past and our future,” said Jacqueline Case of LBLGP, Inc. “I think since Long Beach is such a pet-friendly city, it only seems right to have such an event for our pre-Pride Festival event.”
FOLBA President Bob Carlton praised the benefits of adoption. “Pet adoptions have many rewards for all involved,” he said. “The adopter, the animal, the shelter animals and our community all benefit from these adoptions. Beyond a doubt, adoptions are the right and humane thing to do.”
