We have 9 dogs at the shelter as of today (2 can't be shown on the website) and the cats well that is another story we can hold 30 cats and the count to-date is well over 40.

New Look for the Shelter , first peek at the Office area

As always the LA Animal Shelter existence relies on the life blood of the volunteers. The additional volunteer efforts being putting into the new look of the office area are amazing!

Darby and her father along with Tara have gone above and beyond their regular work hours to re-design the look and feel of the shelters' office. Everytime I visit the shelter it's environment keeps getting better, it is cleaner than ever with very little clutter and now with the office area getting a well deserved facelift.
