Supervisor Barger Announces LA County Contract with Pasadena Humane for Animal Care and Control Services in Targeted Regions


Supervisor Kathryn Barger announced the unanimous approval by the Board of Supervisors for the Los Angeles County Department of Animal Care and Control to enter into a contract with Pasadena Humane to provide regional animal care services to the residents of Altadena, and unincorporated La Crescenta, East Pasadena, and San Pasqual.

“I am delighted that the County will be working with Pasadena Humane to provide these critical animal care and control services for the communities of Altadena and unincorporated La Crescenta, East Pasadena, and San Pasqual,” said Supervisor Kathryn Barger. “The proximity of Pasadena Humane to these areas will help pet owners reclaim lost pets more quickly, and facilitate drop offs for residents who find lost pets. In addition, this partnership should help improve public safety responses as officers will be readily available to respond to calls regarding aggressive dogs, animal abuse or neglect, law enforcement assistance and other animal emergencies.”

Under the contract approved by the Board of Supervisors today, residents in these targeted regions will continue to receive regionally uniform and localized animal care and control services 24 hours a day, 7 days a week from Pasadena Humane. The LA County Department of Animal Care and Control’s closest animal care center is currently located in Baldwin Park – 18 miles from Altadena, 26 miles from unincorporated La Crescenta, and 14 miles from East Pasadena/San Pasqual. This distance is a burden for County residents who need essential animal and pet services such as retrieving lost pets, dealing with aggressive animals and animal emergencies. Currently, Pasadena Humane provides similar services to the adjacent cities of Arcadia, Bradbury, Glendale, La Canada Flintridge, Monrovia, Pasadena, San Marino, Sierra Madre, and South Pasadena. Its shelter is located at 361 South Raymond Avenue, Pasadena, California 91105.
