Become a Volunteer


The County of Los Angeles Department of Animal Care and Control relies on volunteer support from the community to provide additional public service and animal care programs that are vital to a healthy community. We are currently in need of committed volunteers, able to make a nine month or more commitment.  If you have a love for animals and have a minimum of eight hours a month to donate your time, please consider becoming a volunteer in one of our six animal care centers.
