Steps for Adopting:

  1. Find a dog you love during this event.
  2. Fill out an online adoption application at the event.
  3. If your application is approved, a trusted volunteer will perform a home-check.
  4. Once the home-check has been conducted, the Animal Hope and Wellness Foundation will conduct a meet & greet between you and the dog at the rescue. If you have a dog(s) then they will perform a private meet & greet between the dogs to be sure they all get along. *They can also temperament test the dog with cats and children.*
  5. Next comes the foster-to-adopt trial week where you foster for 7 days to be sure this is the right home and you are the right fit.
  6. On the 8th day, after signing the adoption agreement, the adoption closes and the dog is officially in their forever home!

We hope you can join us! Please contact our office at (818) 376-4246 if you have any questions.

Please join me and the Los Angeles County Registrar-Recorder/County Clerk for a voter education workshop on the new voting experience in LA County!

In 2020, Los Angeles County will transition from polling places to vote centers. This new model will allow voters to cast a ballot at any vote center location in the County over an 11-day period.

This is a great opportunity to learn more about the Vote Center Placement Project (VCPP) and its core mission to identify and place accessible and convenient vote center locations throughout the county.
