The pets in L.A.’s animal shelters need help. Here’s what you can do
If stories of overcrowding and inadequate care at L.A. city animal shelters have you wondering how to help, here's how to volunteer and donate.
Sure - volunteer, donate. Here’s one better: stop buying dogs from breeders. That’s it. You want a dog? Adopt one.
Edit: I know folks that would actually volunteer or donate aren’t the types to buy dogs. But getting out the message that buying one dog puts another dog at risk of euthanasia is the most important message.
I read all the horrifying accounts of the Chester Square location and immediately applied to volunteer on their hideous website. I’ve yet to hear anything and it’s been over a week. I don’t think any of them really give a shit.
The biggest problem is too many potential people rent, and every shelter I've dealt with ignores my applications because I say I rent.
Also, most landlords don't allow dogs, which shouldn't be the case.
Without making it easier for people who rent to get dogs this will continue to be an issue.
They need to make it a little less complicated to volunteer. To take the dogs out sure, but to socialize them within the shelter etc you shouldn’t have to work your schedule around a mandatory all day classroom training..
The last two shelters I went to were just about all mixed breed aka Pitbull.
