The ASPCA in Los Angeles, CA

**The ASPCA® is committed to prioritizing the health and safety of the community, the animals in our care, and our staff. Please note that we have adjusted our services as a result of the ongoing COVID-19 crisis:
  • Found Kittens: If you found kittens outside and need assistance, please see more information on next steps at aspca.org/FoundKittens.
  • Spay/Neuter: Effective immediately, all ASPCA spay/neuter services are temporarily suspended. Please check back on this page for updates on when services will be resumed.
  • Veterinary Services: If your pet is experiencing a medical emergency, please call your nearest veterinary emergency hospital or contact ASPCA at (844) KEEP-PET (844-533-7738) to discuss assistance options.
Safety Notice: In order to help us continue to serve pets in need, we ask that clients who have recently traveled to a high-risk state or country, had any exposure to symptomatic or confirmed positive cases of COVID-19, are confirmed positive themselves, or are feeling ill, to please reschedule your appointment or have another caregiver/family member bring your pet in for their appointment.**

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.
