FOLBA Matches Donations for Little Paws Kitten Nursery

Friends of Long Beach Animals recently supported  The Little Lion Foundation and presented them with FOLBA’s matched donation funds of $10,000 from their successful participation in the Long Beach Gives fundraising event.

FOLBA is proud to support this organization which owns and operates Long Beach’s first ever kitten nursery, the Long Beach Paws Project. To date they have saved the lives of nearly 1,000 kittens! We wish them the best of luck in this upcoming year of dedication to all the little paws of Long Beach.

You can read more about the FOLBA donation and the Little Paws Project in the Long Beach Post.

Lost dog finds new home, the story of Rex

ADOPTION UPDATE! We are happy to report that this sweet dog (Now “Rex”) that was found in Lakewood on July 26th has now been adopted! Thank you to Dr. O’Neill from Bixby Animal Clinic  for giving this lost pup a new forever home! ‍💛😍

Rex was found wandering around Carson street in Lakewood in July.   The entire community, and FOLBA came together to try and find this un-microchipped and un-collared pet’s owner.

After a few weeks with no replies to our reuniting campaign, all those that cared for this dog changed tactics to help him find a new home and what better home could he get than living with a veterinarian!  Best wishes to Rex and his new family!

FOLBA recipient of Share the Love funds from Timmons Subaru

We’re humbled by the generous donation from Timmons Subaru of Long Beach as part of the Share the Love Event.

During the event for every Subaru sold they donate $250 to local community nonprofits and FOLBA is honored to be chosen again this year and to receive a donation of over $38,000.

Subaru is arguably the most pet friendly vehicle brand with their cute dog-themed commercials and their October Subaru Loves Pets Month to help increase pet adoptions. Thank you for your generosity toward the animals Greg Timmons and all of Subaru!
