Adopt Your Own ‘Lion King' at Best Friends

The rescue organization is honoring the opening of "The Lion King" with free cat and kitten adoptions.

What to Know

  • July 19-21, 2019
  • Best Friends Lifesaving Center in Mission Hills and NKLA Adoption Center in West LA
  • Free cat and kitten adoption (select animals at NKLA)

"Hakuna mata" may mean "no worries for the rest of your days," which is a very a nice thing to wish for, pine over, and think about, truly.

But there's a way to extend that good feeling, and help another being in the worry-free department, and it goes like this: You can open your home to an animal in need.

And several of those in-need animals will find their way into loving Southern California homes from July 19 through 21, 2019.

Indeed, that happens to be the opening weekend of the live-action "The Lion King," and to celebrate? Best Friends Animal Society is offering free cat and kitten adoptions at its Mission Hills center.

Finding your own lil' Lion King, or Lion Queen, is the goal of all this goodness.

Important things to know about this noble-hearted happening? Number one: The promotion will spotlight select cats and kittens at NKLA, so do ask when you arrive at the center. (All cats and kittens are free at the Best Friends center.)

Also? These sweeties will have been "... fixed, vaccinated, microchipped," and fully prepared to go home with you the moment after you cuddle together. So there won't be waiting: You can help a kitten have a worry-free life immediately.

Call it a Simba-tic relationship, if you will. The kitten showers you with affection, and you do the same, forming, if you will, a circle of love.

Can you feel the love this weekend?

It's coming on so sweet and strong, in Mission Hills, at the Best Friends Lifesaving Center, as well as NKLA Pet Adoption Center in West LA, another participant in this roar-worthy promotion.
