FOLBA out meeting the community at Pet Supplies Plus 1 Year Anniversary

On Saturday May 1st Friends of Long Beach Animals was out at the Los Altos Pet Supplies Plus helping the pet store celebrate their 1 year anniversary.

Along with Long Beach Animal Care Services, FOLBA was meeting members of the community and sharing information about their mission.   Some video recording from the Pawz TV crew was also happening and a video of the event is expected to be released soon.

One of the highlights of the event was their new puppy mascot, yet un-named.   FOLBA is having a contest to help name the critter and and voting options will be posted soon on social media.

Special thanks to Pet Supplies Plus for hosting and the community for stopping by and giving generous donations to Friends of Long Beach Animals.

FOLBA Sponsoring Adoption Fees Through Dec 31

What a great time to adopt!  Now through the end of this tumultuous year 2020, Friends of Long Beach Animals will be sponsoring the adoption fees from the Long Beach Shelter, Long Beach Animal Care Services.

That means it’s a great time to bring home that cute puppy or mischievous kitty just in time for the holidays!

You can find an animal that needs a home on our site by clicking Adoptable Animals or by going to the Long Beach Animal Care website.

We only ask that you please remember that an adoptable animal is not a Christmas present, it’s a life long commitment!

 

ATTENTION – LBACS IS OPEN BY APPOINTMENT ONLY.

To make an appointment to adopt or foster a pet, please email PetAdopt@longbeach.gov or call 562.570.4925.

Appointments may be made during these hours:
