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 at reduced capacity due to COVID-19. Please check this website to see if you meet the qualifications for services.
  • Medical Emergencies: The ASPCA is not a medical emergency facility. If your pet is experiencing a medical emergency, please call your nearest veterinary emergency hospital.
  • 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, tens of thousands of animals are still at-risk for euthanasia. 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.
