The City of Torrance in the South Bay region of Los Angeles County, California is renowned for its beautiful beaches - and for an animal control shelter that strives to re-home mistreated and abandoned dogs. Located at 2200 Jefferson Street Torrance, CA, the Torrance Animal Control feature a lost animal page on their website. This gives dog owners an opportunity to reclaim their dog. If the lost dog is seen to be well-behaved and is clearly someone’s pet, the officers at Torrance Animal control will work hard to get the dog home.
The shelter is run by the Torrance Police Department and was founded in 2004 to help animals and citizens of the city. They host an annual, low-cost Vaccine and Micro-chipping clinic in association with 1st Care Animal Health Clinics.inc. The shelter also has a Facebook page where information is often posted.
This is a great service for the community - especially for people finding it hard to pay for their dog’s vaccinations. The vision of Torrance animal control is to reunite lost dogs with their owners and help sick and injured animals while teaching the public responsibility and respect for their dogs. Dogs are not held for a long period of time at the shelter and generally moved on to the Carson Animal shelter where they are cared for, fostered then adopted. Torrance animal control encourages all current or potential dog owners to license, spay/neuter and microchip their dog.
