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:

10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Wednesdays through Fridays
10 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. Saturdays and Sundays

LBACS is located at 7700 E Spring St, Long Beach, CA 90815.

Tell them FOLBA sent you! 🙂

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.

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!

Read more about the event here in the Long Beach Post.
