LA Animal Services Foster Volunteers Urgently Needed
You can help save a pet's life.
Every year around the Fourth of July, LA Animal Services Centers fill beyond capacity with terrified, lost pets. In 2017, our six LA City animal shelters took in a combined total of 823 dogs and cats from July 2 to July 6. The loud sounds of July 4th fireworks frighten dogs and cats. If they get out of the house or yard, they run in fear. Then these frightened dogs and cats can't find their way home and end up at our shelters.
This means that available shelter space can be the difference between life and death for our animal guests who have been with us past the required hold period. You can make that life-saving difference by fostering a pet for four days or more or adopting.
Please consider adopting or temporarily fostering a shelter pet before July 4th. Every LA Animal Services pet is spayed or neutered, vaccinated, microchipped and ready to be placed in a good home. To view pets available for adoption or foster, please visit: http://bit.ly/LAASAdoptables.
To volunteer to foster, print your application (attached and found at http://bit.ly/LAASFostering) or go to your nearest animal services center and ask for a Foster Volunteer Application. Please drop off your completed form to your nearest center as soon as possible. You can pick up a pet to foster right away or we can reach out when we need the most help.
