The Los Angeles County Animal Care Foundation’s mission is to support the County of Los Angeles Department of Animal Care and Control through fundraising which supports spay and neuter programs, pet adoptions, public education and animal welfare. Many of the Foundation’s fundraising efforts have enabled the department to enhance the care given to animals in the County animal care centers.
The County of Los Angeles’ Department of Animal Care and Control is the largest animal sheltering organization in the nation, caring for 60,000 animals each year in seven animal care centers located throughout Los Angeles County. The Department serves all unincorporated Los Angeles County as well as 47 incorporated cities within the County that contract with the Department for services.
The Department operates 24 hours/day, seven days/week to rescue and care for lost or abandoned animals.
