About West Valley Animal Care Center - Los Angeles Animal Services
About Our Shelter...
West Valley has just come through a major expansion project, more than doubling the size of the facilities to 50,000 square feet. With a large cat population in the West Valley, the new Shelter features multiple cat rooms and special cat play areas, in addition to increasing the number of cages by 68. The dog kennels have an outdoor feel, but dogs will have access to enclosed air-conditioned spaces because of the extreme heat of the West Valley in summer. The number of dog kennels is 152. This shelter is filled with companion animals who desperately need safe and loving homes, fosters and volunteers.
We envision the day when every pet born is ensured a good home and care all its natural life and no animal will suffer because of abuse, neglect or ignorance, and all citizens, their property and neighborhoods are safe from the dangers and nuisances of irresponsible pet guardianship.
We create happiness by bringing pets and people together. Saving animals' lives is our first priority.
