Help LA Animal Services create life-saving space for pets this 4th of July by fostering an animal.
By fostering a pet you are helping to open space that could be the difference between life and death for another animal in need.
A Message from LA Animal Services:
We're asking for your help. 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.
We need your help right now to create life-saving space.
We have hundreds of wonderful dogs and cats of all ages, breeds and sizes waiting to be your temporary companion or best friend forever. By giving an abandoned pet a new home or letting them stay with you for a short time, you are saving two lives, the one you are caring for and the one who now has room at the shelter.
Adopt or temporarily foster 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.
Our LA Animal Services Centers are open Tuesday through Saturday from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. and Sunday 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. We are closed on Mondays and the Fourth of July. To find the center nearest you, visit http://bit.ly/LAASlocator or call (888) 452-7381.
Together, we can save more lives in the City of Angels! Our heartfelt thanks will be nothing compared to the lifetime of memories and unconditional love you will get from your furry friend.
