Support Us


The Los Angeles County Animal Care Foundation is an independent 501(c)(3) charitable foundation that supports the homeless, abandoned, and neglected animals sheltered by the County of Los Angeles Department of Animal Care and Control. Through the leadership of a volunteer Board of Directors, money raised by the Foundation is used in many ways to enhance care and increase adoption of homeless animals.

These Programs Include

County animal care centers accept all animals in need, regardless of their medical condition. The Department provides basic medical care but it does not have the resources to repair serious medical conditions, such as those that require surgery or long term convalescent care.  Dreams Come True provides funding to provide additional medical care to animals in need to establish a road toward recovery and ultimately, adoption.

Often, dogs are brought to our shelters severely matted and dirty.  Matting is not just unattractive to prospective adopters, but it is a painful condition that can limit mobility and quality of life for the animal. Through Grooming Gives Hope, these dogs are thoroughly groomed and bathed, making them healthier, happier and easier for potential adopters to imagine them as desirable additions to their families.

The Foundation participates in many programs to provide low cost spay/neuter services in order to reduce the number of unwanted animals in our community.

The Foundation has paid for numerous enhancements to animal care programs and facilities. These include medical supplies and equipment, pet exercise areas, misting systems to cool the animals in the summer, a new horse barn at our Lancaster animal care center, animal rescue equipment, support for off-site adoptions, repairs to facilities and much more!
