DACC Provides New Resource for Rehoming Pets: Announcing the Launch of Home to Home

DACC Provides New Resource for Rehoming Pets: Announcing the Launch of Home to Home 150 150 Animal Care and Control

One of the toughest decisions a pet owner can face is no longer being able to keep their beloved pet. Pet owners have limited options when rehoming their pet - find a new home on their own, without any safeguards or guidance, or bring their pet to an animal care center, which can cause stress to the pet and family. As part of our commitment of being a resource for pet owners in the Los Angeles County area, the Department of Animal Care and Control (DACC) has partnered with Home to Home™ to bring a new interactive tool to help families that need to rehome their pets. This online resource gives pet owners who can no longer keep their pets the opportunity to find them new, loving homes without bringing them to an animal care center.

Please Keep Your Pets Safe and Protected this Independence Day! 150 150 Animal Care and Control

LONG BEACH, Calif. – The Fourth of July is one of the busiest times for the County of Los Angeles Department of Animal Care and Control (DACC). DACC would like to remind pet owners that extra precautions are necessary in order to protect pets during Fourth of July celebrations. "Fireworks can be terrifying for many pets, who may panic, harm themselves, or run away said Marcia Mayeda, Director of DACC, which counts the 4th of July and the days that follow as the busiest days of the year. "Pet owners are not always aware that their pets may react to the sounds and bright flashes of fireworks. This can trigger the fight or flight instinct."
