Best Friends Animal Society of Los Angeles is a grassroots effort to place so-called “unadoptable” cats and dogs into good homes, and to “reduce the number of unwanted pets through effective spay and neuter programs”. They also collaborate with animal rescue groups and city shelters, promoting kindness and care for animals. Best Friends expressed their gratitude to Whedonopolis: “Thank you so much for your amazing and generous gift in support of Best Friends Animal Society of Los Angeles.  With this incredible investment we will be able to continue to save the lives of many homeless dogs and cats.” The Sova Community Food and Resource Program is operated by the Jewish Family Service, and dedicates itself to preventing and alleviating hunger and poverty throughout the Los Angeles area through food distribution and supportive services. Attendees and staff alike had a fantastic time scaring up some Halloween Dr. Horrible-ness, while helping others through charity in the spirit of Penny. We’re looking forward to seeing everyone next year, as Whedonopolis will add even more fun!
