Only one out of every 10 dogs born will find a permanent home, according to DoSomething.org. Worse, approximately 2.7 million dogs and cats are killed each year because shelters are too full and there aren’t enough adoptive homes. To change the fate of homeless and abandoned animals, LA Animal Rescue has made it their mission to practice the three R’s – Rescue, Rehabilitate, and Rehome. Their goal is to usher the pets forward, change their course, and provide their happily-ever-after.
To raise awareness of animal abandonment and overpopulation, and to encourage adoption, LA Animal Rescue held TailSpin, a pet adoption event / spin class at Revolution Fitness, Santa Monica, on May 20, 2017. The puppies present were named after Star Wars characters, such as Leia, Han Solo, Luke, and Anakin. For a donation of $25, guests could participate in a 45-minute spin class led by spinning instructor Tara Emerson, and enjoy delicious vegan black bean brownies provided by Kye’s. The event also included a raffle for a $100 gift card from Carbon38 and a t-shirt from Puppies Make Me Happy.
