The Los Angeles County Animal Care Foundation is a non-profit animal welfare group whose 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 shelters.
The County of Los Angeles’ Department of Animal Care and Control is the largest animal sheltering organization in the nation, caring for 90,000 animals each year in six shelters located throughout Los Angeles County. The Department serves all unincorporated Los Angeles County as well as 50 incorporated cities within the County that contract with the Department for services.
As a non-profit group, they recognize the contribution of the members of the community when it comes to achieving their mission. Examples of areas where volunteers are needed include helping care for the animals; greeting and helping customers at the shelters; foster parenting; assisting at off-site adoption events; retaking photos of the animals or bathing to increase adoption appeal; or even clerical work to help in the volunteer office.
People can also help the organization through donating financially. These funds will be used to cater to the daily needs of the companion animals under their care.
