Last year 54,129 animals entered L.A. city shelters. Over 13,000 of those animals were killed. No-Kill Los Angeles (NKLA) is an initiative, spearheaded by Best Friends Animal Society, that is working to make L.A. a "no kill" city by 2017. Best Friends Animal Society hosted a super adoption event this past weekend at the La Brea Tar Pits that had over 40 rescue groups and shelters and over 1,000 animals up for adoption. The event succeeded in finding nearly 400 shelter animals new homes.
