By the truck load, donors filled spcaLA’s need for food
Los Angeles, CA (12/3/19) – Less than two weeks ago, Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals Los Angeles (spcaLA) put out an urgent plea for pet food. Today, the agency reported that donations from the Los Angeles community have supplied spcaLA with enough food for the next six months.
“I’m so proud of our Los Angeles community,” said spcaLA President, Madeline Bernstein. “This truly is your spcaLA. You, not a government agency or ‘umbrella’ group, provided for animals in need.”
Deliveries of donated food have been nearly constant at spcaLA since the November 21st plea. Amazon, UPS, and the United States Postal Service have made multiple-truck deliveries to accommodate the donated food. With food stores stabilized, the most-needed item is funding.
“More help is needed,” continued Bernstein. “This holiday season; please consider making a monetary gift to spcaLA, or challenge your friends to give today, for Giving Tuesday.”
Giving Tuesday is a global day of giving back, celebrated the Tuesday after Thanksgiving. spcaLA is offering donation e-Cards, and has opportunities to give on spcaLA.com as well as on Facebook and PayPal.
Donations fund animal cruelty investigations, disaster response, veterinary services, violence-prevention and humane education initiatives, as well as many programs and services for the animals and people of Southern California.
spcaLA is not a government agency, nor is it a chapter of any other group. There is no national spca or humane society.
Those wishing to make a monetary donation can do so on spcaLA.com, by phone at (323) 730-5300, or by mailing a check to spcaLA at 5026 W Jefferson Blvd, Los Angeles, CA 90016.
For those who prefer to donate items, spcaLA is still in need of dog chews for enrichment, non-clumping cat litter, and durable toys for dogs and cats. Programs, like spcaLA’s Violence-Prevention and Humane Education initiatives, also have their own AmazonSmile Charity Wish Lists. Visit spcaLA.com for more information.
