Release Date: 2022-10-19

Long Beach, CA – Long Beach Animal Care Services (LBACS) has partnered with Friends of Long Beach Animals (FOLBA) and Subaru of America to sponsor thirty-one [31] long-term stays and medical underdogs to help find a new home. Eligible pets may receive one [1] full year of PAWP pet emergency care and fast online support courtesy of Friends of Long Beach Animals (FOLBA). Subaru of America will sponsor the $100 adoption fees of the "Underdogs" in partnership with FOLBA and LBACS.

"We'll continue our long-standing commitment to help shelter dogs – especially those with special needs like the older, deaf, blind, and "different" dogs that we lovingly call the "Underdogs" – get adopted," said Subaru of America.

Those interested in adopting a dog can now visit LBACS, located at 7700 E. Spring St., on the following dates and times:

· 10 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. – Wednesdays, Thursdays, and Fridays
· 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. – Saturdays and Sundays

Visitors may enter through the Animal Admissions entrance. Potential adopters can also search for adoptable pets in the shelter by breed, gender, and size and apply online.

Residents can get involved with LBACS by making a monetary donation, fostering, adopting, volunteering, donating supplies, spreading the word about adoptable animals on social media, and following @lbanimalcare on Instagram, Facebook, and Twitter.

"We are thrilled to invite the community to support the "Underdogs" at the shelter by welcoming them into their forever homes," said Staycee Dains, LBACS Bureau Manager.
