The Santa Monica Animal Shelter is leading the way in its commitment to providing excellent care to animals and welcomes the community to its grand re-opening event to showcase recent facility renovations.
On Saturday, June 13, Santa Monica Police Chief Jacqueline Seabrooks and city officials will host a ribbon-cutting ceremony followed by a pet-friendly block party featuring music, pet vendors, animal groups including rescue organizations and veterinary centers from 10 a.m. to noon. Santa Monica residents can enjoy free animal care services including dog licensing, micro chipping, and rabies vaccinations. Non-Santa Monica residents can also participate in the micro chipping and vaccination services for a combined price of $14.
Among the facility’s newest amenities is the remodeled feline center with expanded capacity and more comfortable accommodations for cats and kittens. In addition, the shelter is currently installing a mobile building that will serve as an intake and examination area for shelter animals. These renovations are ongoing, with the canine area next up to be renovated.
The grand re-opening will be held at the Santa Monica Animal Shelter located at 1640 9th St., Santa Monica. Come by and show support for your local animal shelter and remember to bring your pet.
