The Wednesday, July 10, event organized by the Downtown Center Business Improvement District and the Los Angeles Archdiocese is intended to strengthen community ties, giving people a chance to meet their neighbors and bond over their shared interest in pets. Various Downtown pet supply stores had displays, and there were also animal adoptions.
