Christmas time is all about giving. We give gifts to our family and friends, we shower our dogs with love, affection, new toys and delicious treats. We decorate our houses and give all our energy to make the season as enjoyable and cozy as possible. However, there are doggos in need that do not receive this kind of love, but luckily, there are generous people who work in donation centers that help these poor animals in their toughest days. Have a look at the list of the donation centers in Los Angeles where you can drop off supplies, toys, and treats for the less fortunate dogs over the Christmas season.
The acronym spcaLA stands for the Society for Prevention of Cruelty to Animals Los Angeles, and they work tirelessly to help animals in need. They accept donations, and they always need your help! You can bring them fleece blankets, wet and dry dog food, chicken jerky treats; turkey treats, chews, dental sticks, pig ear treats, puppy diapers and kennels. Make their holidays bright by donating.
Best Friends Animal Society in Los Angeles helps to save the lives of abandoned and abused animals, and you can help them by donating to them, or by purchasing items from their Christmas wish list. They need harnesses both for large and small dogs, various toys such as tires, fetch toys, toys that can attach to kennels, and of course, wet and dry dog food.
The No-Kill Los Angeles Pet Adoption Center is an organization that helps find homes for lonely and abandoned cats and dogs. You can help them by purchasing some of the items they need and bringing them over. They always need harnesses and leashes, wet and dry dog food, and natural dog treats (stay away from high-calorie stuff). Play Santa and drop off a bag of goodies!
The nationwide Pets of the Homeless also has a resource center in Los Angeles, at 2121 S. Flower Street, where you can help this Christmas by volunteering, donating, or bringing some of the items they always need such as food, collars, leashes, harnesses, and doggy beds. They are also in need of veterinary and grooming services if you can provide any of them.
Animal Care & Control accepts your generous donations which will help them assist the animals in need this holiday season. You can donate money to them, help them by purchasing a designer pet tag, donate your vehicle, or make a donation in the name of your friend or as a birthday or Christmas gift. Or, simply visit them and ask what they need in person!
Wags and Walks Adoption Center is located on 2236 Federal Ave in Los Angeles, and they help stray and rescued dogs find new homes and loving families. They are currently running a fundraiser called Home for the Holidays through which they promote adoption in the holiday season! Aid them and the dogs in their care by donating directly, or just by spreading the word – everything helps!
