Found Animals seeks to improve the Los Angeles community and homeless pet population through their volunteer programs. Established in February of 2010, the Found Animals’ Volunteer Program provides residents of Los Angeles with opportunities to help reduce animal shelter euthanasia and increase pet adoption through various programs. Volunteers have the option of working directly with animals at Adopt & Shop, The Cat Adoption Center and Spay4LA or in an administrative role at their pet-friendly office. The LA animal volunteer program has grown progressively by 225% since the end of 2010 with approximately 134 active volunteers covering 157 shifts and volunteering 413 hours each week.
Adopt & Shop – Found Animals’ first retail adoption store, located in Lakewood, CA, houses shelter cats and dogs who are showcased to encourage shoppers to become adopters. Volunteers working at Adopt & Shop assist with the following: Adoption counseling and pet matchmaking, Dog walking, Socializing and grooming pets, Photography, Videography, and much more!
