Los Angeles, August 16 2022 – LA Animal Services, like thousands of shelters across the country, is experiencing an increase in intake of animals, especially medium to large size dogs. Because more pets are coming into our shelters than getting adopted or fostered each day, our six Centers are running out of available kennels for our canine companions.
“This summer has been an extremely busy time at our shelters,” said Annette Ramirez, Interim General Manager for LA Animal Services. “We continue to see more pets being surrendered to our Centers than pets being adopted or fostered.”
To better illustrate the current level of our shelter population, we have created a visual that indicates our current shelter capacity level. Due to the continued increase of animals, primarily dogs, into our six shelters during the past several months, we are currently at the Extreme Level. We are pleading to animal-loving Angelenos to help us find homes for the pets in our shelters by fostering or adopting.
