ASPCA Community Engagement Program in Los Angeles

LA Safety Net Program

The ASPCA has established Community Engagement programs in partnership with two Los Angeles County animal shelters—Baldwin Park and Downey Animal Care Centers. ASPCA Community Engagement Managers work directly with pet owners who arrive at these shelters. After an initial review, our staff is able to connect families to resources for their pets, such as spay/neuter and vaccinations. The program’s goal is to increase accessibility of resources to pet-owning families, and as a result, improve the welfare of L.A.’s animals. Available services include the following:

  • Spay/Neuter
  • Vaccinations
  • Microchips
  • Emergency Veterinary Care
  • Humane Euthanasia
  • Pet Supplies
  • Outdoor Kennels
  • Financial Assistance for Pet Deposits & Licensing
