Losing a pet is devastating… and if flyers posted on local signposts all around town are any indication – it is an epidemic. While we want to think everyone invests in chipping and registering their animals… most don’t. If the pet ever goes missing it is a sad reminder of just how valuable the small investment is!
LA Animal Services has several shelters all over the City of Los Angeles, and if you find or see a stray pet… you can drop them off at any of these facilities. They immediately take a photo of the animal and post it to their website. With the incredible amount of stray and abandoned pets, they want nothing more than to reunite pets with their owners. If you aren’t sure which area your pet may have been turned into, you can easily search all the shelters with their website. Click here for the search link.
LA Animal services also offers chipping, and a myriad of services that not only benefit the health and welfare of your pet, but also help this overburdened and underfunded agency to care for so many pets. Most importantly, if you are interested in adding a pet to your family – please consider adopting one of their many thousands of pets, from dogs, cats, turtles, bunnies, guinea pigs, reptiles…. the list goes on and on!
If you see a lost pet and are not able to take it to a shelter, call Animal Services and they will come pick it up if they can! 323-276-5022
