By order of the Chair of the Board of Supervisors for the County of Los Angeles, all County facilities will be closed to the public beginning March 16, 2020 until further notice. This includes DACC’s seven animal care centers. DACC officers will continue to respond to emergency calls for service including dangerous dogs, sick or injured animals, police assistance, removal of dead animals, and animal cruelty investigations. You may contact the numbers below or via email to request service. Pet owners considering surrendering their pets should delay doing so, if possible. If this is not possible, please call your local animal care center for direction. DACC is not accepting healthy stray cats at this time.

DACC is aware that the temporary closing of County facilities will disrupt normal adoption and pet redemption services. We are committed to ensuring that lost pets are quickly reunited with their families, and that homeless animals continue to have the opportunity for adoption. We are managing our animal population closely, and only animals that are irremediably suffering, dangerous, or unable to eat without assistance will be euthanized during this time.
