Local Realtor® Allison Van Wig Wants To Know … How Much Is That Doggie In The Window? New Adopt & Shop in Lakewood Mall Is Now Open!


There I was last Sunday, running errands to pick up a few things in the Lakewood Center Mall near Costco, when the vision before me made my heart stop … I had heard that there was going to be a new store opening soon called Adopt & Shop and believe me this one is going to be a super hit among pet lovers!

Want to adopt a pet without the hassle of going to a shelter?

As reported by Pamela Hale-Burns a Staff Writer with the Long Beach Press Telegram … Found Animals, a Los Angeles-based nonprofit group, is bringing shelter animals to the people at its first retail pet adoption center, Adopt & Shop, which opened just last week.


"It's a concept that's been around for a while. The idea is that there are great pets at shelters, but people just don't go to shelters," said Aimee Gilbreath, executive director of Found Animals. "So, the idea is to bring the pet to the people in a pet-store environment."

All of the pets will come from one of Found Animals' shelter partners, the Southeast Area Animal Control Authority in Downey.

The Lakewood store will feature cats, dogs, rabbits and other animals available for adoption, said Gilbreath.

The 1,084-square-foot retail store broke ground in January. Much like a traditional pet store, it will feature pets and carry all of the basic supplies needed for a new pet, including food, collars, leashes, ID tags, bowls, litter boxes, kitty litter, eco-friendly toys and bedding.

"We are incredibly excited for Adopt & Shop to open, because we know it will have a tremendous impact on the number of shelter animals adopted into loving homes throughout the area," said Dan Morrison, executive director of SEAACA. "We can only hope this is the beginning of a shift in the way people view the adoption of shelter animals."


Adopt & Shop pets will be neutered, vaccinated and micro-chipped and will go home with resources and support to ensure a successful integration into the household.

The center, located next to the Lakewood Center Costco, will be open Tuesdays through Sundays from noon to 6 p.m. An official grand opening event will be April 30 from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m.

I think that all shelter animals deserve a chance to find a loving home with responsible owners … this is just one of the many, many things I love about living in the Lakewood and Long Beach communities.

As a full-time Realtor® I am happy to have the opportunity to share this information with my clients. For more information about this or anything else about living in Lakewood or Long Beach … visit my website … or just give me a call 562.882.1581
