Bark Avenue Foundation Awarded Grant from the Annenberg Foundation & Wallis Annenberg PetSpace Grand Opening Update

The Annenberg Foundation recently awarded Bark Avenue Foundation a generous grant to support our life-saving programs including humane education, spay/neuter, and emergency veterinary services to underserved communities throughout the Los Angeles area. We are thrilled to be able to partner with the Annenberg Foundation and to continue this important work and provide services to pet owners and animals in need!

The BAF team was also honored to attend the grand opening of the Wallis Annenberg PetSpace on June 24th. The high-tech animal adoption center is located in Playa Vista and is full of interactive experiences and educational components.

As outlined by Annenberg PetSpace’s website, the community space was created specifically for animal lovers and features:

  • Pounce Patio & Fetch Deck – These areas are used for training demonstrations and a place for potential pet parents to meet and interact with some of the adoptable animals.
  • PetPorch – For special programming and presentations.
  • Adoption Suites designed to provide people and pets with a personal, friendly, safe, and informative adoption experience. Click here to see their pets for adoption!
  • Leadership Institute – Encouraging interdisciplinary scholarship, promoting policy discourse, and facilitating public education on the relationship between humans and companion animals.
  • On-Site Health Center – This clinic includes an operating room (complete with two-way viewing window where visitors can watch and interact with a veterinarian as they perform a surgery).
  • Grooming Rooms – Guests can see technicians bathe, groom, and style adoptable animals.

Admission to the space is complimentary. Plan your visit today!

Congratulations to the Annenberg PetSpace team on an amazing grand opening and we’re looking forward to saving many lives together!
