Partners Sponsoring "Adopt an Angel" Day at South Los Angeles Animal Shelter

WINDSOR, CA--(Marketwired - September 21, 2016) - VIP Petcare, the leader in veterinary pet wellness care, and Animal Angels, an animal rescue and advocacy group focused on ending shelter pet euthanasia and finding happy homes for shelter animals, are hosting an adoption event on September 24, 2016. The event, called "Adopt an Angel," will take place at the South Los Angeles Animal Shelter from 10 am to 3pm. The goal of the event is to find homes for the overwhelming number of deserving pets at the shelter.

There will be a number of deserving pets available for adoption at the shelter on this day, and VIP Petcare will provide a voucher good for $15 off products and services-including vaccinations, diagnostic testing, microchipping and prescription preventative medications - for use at their Community Veterinary Clinics to all animals adopted on the day. South Los Angeles Animal Shelter is located at 1850 W.60th St., Los Angeles, California 90047.

Patricia DeLeon is best known for having been Miss Panama and currently works in television and film. All of the Animal Angels believe passionately in representing the rights of animals who can not speak for themselves.
