What kind of programs do you have?
Our programs include:
- Shelter-We provide food, shelter and medical care to thousands of domestic and wild animals each year. In 2008, we took in 12,270 animals from our service cities.
- Adoption and Adoption Counseling-Our adoption counselors help homeless animals find caring homes after carefully ensuring owner responsibility.
- Lost & Found-We reunite lost pets with their owners. We check each animal that comes through our gates for visible and hidden identification (such as microchips) and notify the owners. We also sell identification tags in our pet store at a very reasonable cost. Our website is updated twice daily with all of the photos of newly arrived animals so that people can easily check for their lost pets.
- Humane Education-Through our Humane Education Program, school children and other members of our community learn proper pet care and the appreciation and humane treatment of animals.
- Spay/Neuter Program-To control pet over population, we have a low cost spay/neuter clinic for families who wish to sterilize their current pets.
- Cruelty Investigations-To help protect those who cannot always protect themselves, our Humane Officers actively investigate cases of animal abuse, neglect and cruelty.
- Animal Control-Our Humane and Animal Control Officers respond to calls regarding stray, injured and dead animals. They also investigate all reports of suspected cruelty to animals.
- Wildlife-Our Wildlife Officer is available to pick-up and relocate or rehabilitate local area wildlife. She will also answer any question that arises and offer solutions to problems that may develop when living with urban wildlife.
- Pet Supplies-In our store, we sell quality pet food, toys, and accessories. All proceeds from the store help fund shelter operations.
- Companion Animal Program-Because we believe that days are brighter and we are healthier when animals are around, our volunteers take pets to visit patients in hospitals, convalescent homes and special care facilities.
- Volunteer Program-We provide unique volunteer opportunities for members of the community. Their work helps reinforce humane treatment of all animals.
- Dog Boarding-We offer boarding for dogs in a special part of the shelter for a small fee.
- Behavior Consultation-Our behavior department can answer your questions and consult with you about problems you may have with your pets. We also offer training classes on site.
- Licensing-We provide licensing services for the cities of La Cañada Flintridge, Arcadia, and San Marino.
