(Editor’s note: After months of trying to adopt a dog, CTN recommends the Wallis Annenberg PetSpace adoptions in Playa Vista. I paid with a credit card ($80), signed a contract and brought a dog home on the same day we visited.
The PetSpace writes “Our adoption policy is welcoming and supportive of adopters from all walks of life. Our goal is to make it easy for you to start your new life with your new pet soulmate. To be approved to adopt one of our animals, you will need to be at least 18 years of age and demonstrate that you are willing and able to provide for your new pet’s needs by signing our adoption agreement.” The dogs are fixed and microchipped, teeth cleaned and shots given.
