The 10 a.m.-4 p.m. event is part traffic safety lesson and part animal fair, with the aim of helping residents care for pets and keep them safe. The lineup includes pet CPR lessons, animal adoptions and a low-cost pet vaccine clinic. “If you look at Downtown, there are so many dogs here. It’s a fantastic opportunity to look at the changing environment,” said Sgt. Kris Werner of the LAPD Central Traffic Division. The fair is free and takes place at the LAPD headquarters in the Civic Center. The block of Main Street between First and Second streets will be closed to vehicle traffic during the event.
