HDLA is here to help pet owners with resources if they fall on hard times.
We believe pets and families should stay together
and are here to do something about it.
Since our organization launched in 2014, the shelter intervention program
has kept 3,370 pets out of the shelter and with their families.
Please help us continue to help others.
The primary reason people surrender pets to a city shelter is due to financial constraints. Home Dog LA is the intervention program at North Central Shelter in Los Angeles, and we offer community based solutions to local residents to help them and their pets through difficult times.
Often the last thing a pet owner wants to do is to surrender a pet to a shelter, but issues do arise. That's where Home Dog LA comes in to assist in solving issues so that people can keep their pets.
Ways HOME DOG LA helps:
- pet food donations
- providing leashes & collars
- humane euthanasia in the case of old age or terminal illness
- landlord issues
- fence repair & dog houses
- connecting pet owners with free spay/neuter services
- assistance with medical costs for a sick or injured pet (case to case basis)
- helping with owner redemption fees when a pet has landed in the shelter
By keeping pets and families together, HDLA helps impact the problem of overcrowding at North Central Shelter, which gives the animals who need to be there more time to find forever homes.
