County of Los Angeles Contracts with Pasadena Humane Society for Animal Control, Sheltering Services

The County of Los Angeles Department of Animal Care and Control announced Tuesday it will be contracting with Pasadena Humane Society & SPCA effective Dec. 1, 2016, for animal control and sheltering services to the unincorporated areas of Altadena, La Crescenta-Montrose, and Pasadena.

The Los Angeles County Board of Supervisors authorized Department of Animal Care and Control Director Marcia Mayeda to enter into an agreement with PHS for animal care and control services in these unincorporated communities.

The agreement will allow for PHS to respond to animal service inquiries within the unincorporated areas of Altadena, La Crescenta-Montrose, and Pasadena to provide sheltering services to these communities previously served by DACC.

“This public-private partnership will improve animal control services to these unincorporated communities as PHS works extensively in those areas,” said DACC Director Marcia Mayeda. “Their animal shelter is better located to serve residents and
animals, which will make it easier to reunite lost pets with their owners, a goal we all share.”

“PHS is pleased to extend ourselves to our neighboring communities and will ensure proactive services for animals and people,” said PHS President/CEO Julie Bank.

PHS is located on 361 S. Raymond Avenue in the City of Pasadena. They can be reached at 626-792-7151. For more information on PHS, please visit
