In a unique collaboration, the national nonprofit organization Petco Love is teaming up with Dogs Playing for Life and BOBS from Skechers™ for National Playgroup Rockstars Adoption events at 30+ animal shelters across the country, including LA Animal Services on October 7, to kick off Rocktober. The adoption events will highlight social dogs, “Playgroup Rockstars,” at animal shelters while they are playing harmoniously in groups, so potential adopters can see their personalities shine.

There are 39 animal shelters across the country participating in National Playgroup Rockstars Adoption events on Saturday, including the Jefferson Park Pet Resources Center, 3612 11th Avenue in UNNC, from 1 to 3 p.m. For those interested in adopting a Rockstar dog, adoption fees will be waived.
