The holidays are a time of giving! People tend to be a little kinder, smile a little bigger, and hopefully do a little more to help homeless pets. Are you looking to adopt a pet as a gift for your family (or yourself!) this holiday season? Many shelters and rescues use this time of year for super fun adoption fairs at holiday-themed events around town. One really spectacular one to check out if you are in Southern California is the annual Grinchmas celebration at Universal Studios Hollywood. Who doesn’t love the hero dog of the class Dr. Seuss story, not to mention all the adorable little Whos? The pet adoption part of this event is called the Have a Heart Pet Adoption Fair and is presented by Universal Studios Hollywood and L.A. Animal Services. It takes place Noon to 4:00 p.m. on Saturday and Sunday, December 10 and 11 — and as it is located just outside the theme park’s main entrance, it is totally free for everyone to enjoy! For potential pet adopters who aren’t nearby, check out your local animal shelter and rescue for special holiday adoption events. Or make your own holiday celebration by adopting a pet and saving a life. Happy holidays!
