Great news! We’re excited to announce that the ASPCA has teamed up with Best Friends Animal Society to help save more shelter animals’ lives in Los Angeles this holiday season.

The ASPCA has pledged $70,000 and Best Friends has contributed $50,000 to offset Los Angeles shelter costs including vaccinations, micro-chipping and spay/neuter procedures through the end of 2013. As a result, these animal welfare groups will have increased capacity to bring in, care for and adopt out animals from overcrowded city shelters.

Our contribution will cover fees for LA Animal Services’ New Hope Partners, qualified 501(c)(3) organizations that meet a basic set of standards set by the City of Los Angeles Animal Services. Best Friends will cover fees for those New Hope Partners that are also partners in the No Kill Los Angeles (NKLA) Coalition, a Best Friends’ initiative launched in 2012.

It is our goal to help find forever homes for many more cats and dogs in Los Angeles in the coming months, and we’re excited to be a part of this innovative collaboration.
