Freely accessible local news is vital. Please power our reporters and help keep us independent with a donation today during our fall member drive.

* * *Every Saturday, LAist will feature an adoptable cat and dog from a different local shelter or accredited 501c3 rescue organization. Take a look at these furry bundles and consider giving them a home, or forward their faces to your friends who may be interested. * * *

Are you Spring Cleaning? Those old blankets, towels or sheets you’re tossing can find a new life at your neighborhood animal care center! They’ll also take newspapers, dog and cat toys, treats and food, so when you're buying food for your pet, think about getting an extra bag or can to donate to the homeless pets of Los Angeles.

Most pet adoption centers have wishlists that include items needed for the facility or operations like office supplies, canopies, small kitchen appliances or furniture. By donating items such as these, budgets can be used for things like rehabilitation, veterinary services and animal training which can make all the difference for a shelter pet waiting for a new home. Check out the Wish Lists below to see if you can help.
