Thank you for visiting the L.A. Love & Leashes Strut Your Mutt Team page. We’re raising money to help end the killing of shelters pets nationwide.
L.A. Love & Leashes works in partnership with LA city shelters to find forever homes for dogs and cats still living in LA's shelters.
L.A. Love & Leashes is located at the Westfield Century City Mall. Everyday, shelter dogs and cats are brought to our space at the mall in hopes of getting adopted. If they are not adopted, they go back to the shelter at night, but come back until they do. The program is the first of its kind because we bring overlooked shelter pets to the public for adoption. The animals are in a more welcoming, serene setting than the typical local shelter. They are more engaged and less anxious, and potential adopters have an easier time connecting with the them.
The fundamental focus of L.A. Love & Leashes is to help our city shelters save more lives by reaching large numbers of people who might not otherwise visit our shelters. Since 2012, L.A. Love & Leashes has been responsible for more than 4,000 adoptions.
This year, our goal is to raise $75,000 to provide much needed medical treatment to shelter pets that the shelters cannot afford. This year in particular, shelters are not only over-crowded and difficult for the public to get to during Covid, but recent huge budget cuts have left shelters often unable to provide critical medical care to the animals who desperately need it. Each of these homeless pets is a loving pet just like yours and mine and we must help them get the medical care they urgently need, so they too have the chance to find a loving home of their own. We need to help the animals now more than ever and are counting on your support.
Every day, nearly 1,000 dogs and cats are killed in America's shelters, simply because they don't have a safe places to call home. Together, we can Save Them All and reduce that number to zero. Thank you for your kind support.
