Long Beach Animal Care Services At Critical Capacity

The Long Beach Animal Care Services location has over 200 animals in the shelter and has run out of options for places to put dogs.

“To maintain our Compassion Saves model of helping those in greatest need, the sick, injured, and abused, we need your help to keep the healthy and lost pets out of the shelter”, Long Beach Animal Care announced in a social media post.

The Compassion Saves model is geared toward supporting animals and people of the community through outreach, education, guidance, and support services.

ACS is partnering with Clear the Shelters this month to help dogs find their forever homes. Clear the Shelters is a nationwide pet adoption drive.

It costs $25 to adopt an adult pet (age seven months and up). Adoption fees are waived for long-term residents (dogs that have been in the shelter for at least 90 days) and critters.

Open adoption hours are currently 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. Wednesdays through Sundays. Appointments are also available by phone or email. 

Long Beach Animal Care Services is at 7700 E. Spring St.  Call (562) 570-7387 or email animalcare@longbeach.gov.
