LA Animal Services Pleads for Public to Adopt as Shelters Reach Full Capacity – Los Angeles

Los Angeles animal shelters are short of space and need your help to foster or adopt pets.

“We have taken measures each month to increase pet adoptions, foster homes, transfers of pets to rescue partners, and pets being returned home,”Annette Ramirez, Interim General manager for LA Animal Services, released a press release Tuesday. “Despite these efforts, the intake numbers continue to outpace community placements.”

Shelters across the nation have experienced problems due to an increase in medium-to-large-sized 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,”Officials from the LA Animal Service said

“Due to the continued increase of animals, primarily dogs, into our six shelters, during the past several months, we are currently at the orange/extreme level,”According to officials.

The shelter will offer reduced adoption fees for puppies and dogs on Saturday, June 18, and Sunday, June 19, to encourage pet adoptions.

The shelter received a grant through the ASPCA which will allow them waive fees for kittens and cats.

“We are pleading to animal-loving Angelenos to help us find homes for the pets in our shelters by fostering and adopting,”According to officials
