Animal Care Services Open House looks forward to new year
2009-12-28 · By Editor
When compared to the previous year, almost 600 fewer animals were impounded in Long Beach in 2009, and 400 more animals were adopted, redeemed or rehabilitated at Long Beach Animal Care Services. Overall, the animal live release rate improved by more than 15 percent — the best results in five years. How did it happen and how can Animal Care Services continue progress in 2010?
Long Beach animal care Services Bureau invites residents and guests to its 2010 Open House from 10:00 a.m. to noon on Sunday, January 24.
“The past year was a tremendous year of growth and positive change,” says Ronald R. Arias, Department Director, “the coming year promises to be an exciting year for building on the vision of becoming California’s safest large city for people and animals.”
At the open house, staff will present a report card on the past year as well as an overview of new programs and technologies available to residents in 2010. Refreshments, tours and comments from residents will be included. Information on animal adoption, dog licensing, spay and neuter programs, and other animal care information will be available.
The animal shelter is located at 7700 East Spring Street, Long Beach, CA 90815. All residents, friends and guests are welcome to attend. No RSVP is necessary.
