The Friends of LA Animal Shelters is a volunteer-driven non-profit animal welfare advocacy group whose aim is to increase adoptions and raise the live save rate at L.A.’s city animal shelters. They strive to make the City of Los Angeles a safer and better place to live in for dogs, cats, and other furry friends.
Aside from working together with six rescue organizations in the area, they also operate the L.A. Love & Leashes pet store where cats and dogs are brought daily for adoption from city shelters. The store also sells pet supplies, toys, and treats.
Since they are a private organization, they receive no federal, state, or local funding and instead rely on the help of the community to be able to save more lives. Some of the ways to help Friends of LAAS include donating in cash via PayPal, shopping at the Love & Leashes store, helping in raising awareness about the organization and its advocacy, as well as connecting to them via Facebook, Twitter, and YouTube.
