Los Angeles Initiative
The ASPCA in Los Angeles, CA
As a national animal welfare organization, the ASPCA’s role is to ensure the safety and protection of animals everywhere. While progress for homeless animals has been made by local organizations in Los Angeles, their annual shelter intake is still more than 170,000 animals—and roughly half of them don’t make it out. Over the past decade, the ASPCA has developed a model for saving lives in high-density urban environments that struggle with animal homelessness, and we aim to replicate our past successes in Los Angeles.
