Long Beach Animal Care Services has a unique agreement with the Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals (spcaLA). Through our contract the spcaLA has the first right to select adoptable animals from our shelter. If you are interested in adopting one of our guests, please go to the Adoptions counter on the day the animal is legally available. We recommend arriving at 10am as some animals are particularly popular.
Animals not initially selected by the spcaLA for adoption can still be adopted through our shelter. Please come visit our shelter, any animal with a green kennel card is legally available to adopt. If you wish to adopt a pet, you will be required to fill out an application and be approved for adoption. The animals on the links below are legally available for adoption through our shelter. Animals who pose a threat to the public will not be made available for adoption. In addition, some of the animals listed may not be made available for adoption or rescue due to health or behavioral problems.
