Ross and I spent the day in Los Angeles yesterday, first attending the Best Friends NKLA adoption event, which happened to be located fairly close to the Griffith Observatory. We had tried going to the Observatory once before, but we weren’t able to find parking that day. Yesterday was a pretty hot day, and we were dressed appropriately to park and walk up the hill to the Observatory. Here are some pictures of the view and also some from when we arrived at Griffith Observatory. And just for good measure, I’ve thrown in a couple of pics from the adoption event as well. No, we did not adopt a new pet. I simply wanted to go and experience an NKLA Super Adoption Event. Their goal is to adopt out 500 animals this weekend. #adoptdontshop

If you’re wondering what NKLA means, here is an excerpt from the NKLA website:
SAVE THEM ALL®
Can you imagine an America where no pet is killed in a shelter again simply for being unwanted? We can. Led by Best Friends Animal Society, the NKLA initiative is poised to serve as a model for how the entire nation can become no-kill, with no pet ever having to die in a shelter again simply because they do not have a home. Since the launch of NKLA in 2012, the number of pets being killed in L.A. city shelters has decreased by 66%. Join us. Together, we can Save Them All®.
