Pasadena Humane has launched the “Roses and Wet Noses” adoption program by waiving adoption fees for all large dogs (40 pounds and over) in celebration of their participation in the 135th Rose Parade.
Sponsored by the Pet Care Foundation, Roses and Wet Noses will run from December 15th to 31st.
“Stop by Pasadena Humane and adopt your new ‘bud – we have a parade of puppies ready to go home with you! Adoptions include spaying or neutering, vaccinations and microchipping,” Pasadena Humane said in announcing the promotion.
Earlier, Pasadena Humane announced that it is building a float that will be in the Rose Parade on New Year’s Day: it’s called “Feed the Love” and is sponsored by Hill’s Pet Nutrition.
“Feed the Love” is 55 feet long and celebrates the bond between pets and their people and encourages the adoption of shelter pets while recognizing the role science-based nutrition plays in helping them be healthy, happy and more adoptable . From kittens playing under a cat tree to a hungry dog eagerly awaiting a bowl of nutritious food while wearing an ‘Adopt Me’ bandana, the float will show what it’s like to welcome shelter pets.
“Our 2024 float will mark the continuation of over a century of our organization’s involvement with the Rose Parade, both as a participant and in our behind-the-scenes role of ensuring the safety of all animals in the parade,” said Dia DuVernet. , President & CEO of Pasadena Humane.
Since 1903, Pasadena Humane (the Pasadena Humane Society) has been providing lifesaving programs and services for animals and the people who love them in the greater Los Angeles area. Based on its Pasadena campus, the organization provides shelter, dedicated care and fresh starts for thousands of the most vulnerable animals each year.
In addition to pet adoptions and fostering, Pasadena Humane focuses on programs and services aimed at helping people care for and keep their pets, such as free and low-cost spay/neuter and vaccinations, a pet food pantry and a phone animal support center . Last year, Pasadena Humane helped nearly 40,000 animals through adoptions, wildlife rehabilitation, lost and found, veterinary services and surrender prevention assistance.
