Pet Food Shortage at spcaLA Shelters

Food needed for animals at three spcaLA pet adoption centers and Long Beach Animal Care Services

The pet food reserves are dangerously low at Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals Los Angeles (spcaLA). spcaLA is appealing to the community for pet food donations or the funds with which to purchase food. Donations can be dropped off at any spcaLA location, shipped direct from spcaLA’s Amazon Wish List, or made at

Dogs like Ezra need your help.

spcaLA needs wet and dry pet food for dogs, cats, kittens, puppies, and rabbits.

“A full food bowl provides not only nutrition but also the first step toward recovery for neglected and abused animals,” said Madeline Bernstein, spcaLA President. “It is our mission to nurture and protect them and we need the public’s help to do that.”

spcaLA uses an average of 60,000 pounds of pet food a year. That feeds about 500 animals a day at spcaLA’s three pet adoption locations, plus the animals at Long Beach Animal Care Services.

Unopened pet food donations can be dropped off at any spcaLA location during business hours: 7700 E.
