Los Angeles County Animal Care And Control has discontinued OPEN ACCESS to all adoptable animals in their care despite rollbacks of Covid-19 restrictions. Director Marcia Mayeda has decided to permanently limit access of tax-paying Californians to our neighborhood animal pounds by forcing residents to use the Internet to find a pound animal they wish to adopt. Then, potential adopters must set an appointment (Government Identification Required) to preview animals.

Public Information Officer Don Belton of Los Angeles County Animal Care And Control stated, "All of our animals are listed and posted on our website, available for viewing and inquiry by the public." He continued, "Based on this information and the benefit to the health and well being of the animals, we are continuing with the appointment-based system." 

This new hurdle is a DEATH SENTENCE TO THOUSANDS OF DOGS AND CATS caught in the Los Angeles County and City Animal Care and Control centers. We must force Director of Los Angeles County Animal Care and Control Marcia Mayeda and General Manager at Los Angeles Animal Services Dana Brown to IMMEDIATELY REVERSE this decision to limit Open Access to our public animal pounds despite the end of Covid-19 restrictions and allow tax-paying citizens unfettered access TO ALL LOS ANGELES COUNTY AND CITY ANIMALS IN OUR LOS ANGELES COUNTY AND CITY FACILITIES.
