Stepping up to the mic alongside co-emcee Robert Kovacik from NBC4, actress/animal advocate Maria Conchita Alonso used her star wattage to shine a spotlight on some of the adorable adoptables from the more than 40 shelters and rescue organizations which participated in the “Super Adoption” event.
A total of 396 dogs, cats, puppies and kittens found forever homes at the two-day adopt-a-thon– including Bella, a fortunate feline who has found a place in the heart and home of the three-time Grammy-nominated entertainer!

Along with Maria Conchita Alonso, other animal-loving luminaries promoted the option of adoption at the event, including former NYPD Blue cast member Charlotte Ross, Maggie Q from The CW series Nikita; The Cat Whisperer Mieshelle Nagelschneider and NCIS: Los Angeles star Miguel Ferrer, who told Best Friends: “When I first heard about the NKLA mission, I thought it was a beautiful, but impossible dream. Right now more than 70 different NKLA coalition partners are working together to put a stop to the killing of dogs and cats in L.A. shelters, so that dream is becoming a reality.”
NKLA (No-Kill Los Angeles) is a Best Friends Animal Society initiative striving to end the euthanization of healthy and treatable companion animals in L.A.’s city shelters by 2017.
