Assemblyman Mike Gatto is teaming up with the Burbank Animal Shelter and KFI AM 640 host Tim Conway, Jr. to kick off the “Adopt a Friend for Life” event and help the Burbank Animal Shelter in its quest to win the ASPCA Rachel Ray $100,000 Challenge this Saturday.
From Saturday, August 23, 2014 to Sunday, August 31, 2014, the Burbank Animal Shelter will WAIVE ALL ADOPTION FEES for dogs, cats, and rabbits, including fees for the first round of appropriate vaccinations, spay/neuter surgery, and microchips for cats, dogs, and rabbits. To kick-off the event, Assemblyman Gatto and KFI talker Tim Conway, Jr. are inviting members of the press and the public to attend a special media event at 10 a.m. on Saturday, August 23, 2014.
The event is part of the Burbank Animal Shelter’s mission to win the ASPCA Rachel Ray Challenge and adopt more than 800 animals this summer. If successful, the Burbank Animal Shelter will have the opportunity to receive several grants from the ASPCA, including a $25,000 grant for community engagement.
Free adoptions are available to any person looking for the perfect furry or feathered friend and are not limited to those living within the Burbank Animal Shelter’s service area or Assemblyman Gatto’s district boundaries. If you are unable to adopt at this time, you can still support the shelter in the ASPCA Rachel Ray 100K challenge by “liking” their page at www.facebook.com/
