NKLA. You’ve seen billboards around L.A. with NKLA and an image of a cute dog or cat. But what exactly is NKLA?

NKLA stands for No-Kill Los Angeles, an initiative of Best Friends Animal Society, who opened the first no-kill shelter in Los Angeles back in February. Their goal, to stop the killing of more than 17,000 healthy and treatable pets each year in L.A. shelters by 2016.

So how is this accomplished? By providing spay and neuter services, the number of animals going into L.A.’s animal shelters will decrease, and the number of animals coming out of the shelters from adoptions and fostering will increase.

For pet owners who can’t afford to have their pet fixed, NKLA is here to help. Meet the NKLA Neuter Cruiser, which provides transportation for pets of low income families to and from locations for spay and neuter services.
