Long Beach Haute Dogs
City of Long Beach Animal Care Services, Haute Dogs, Justin Rudd, and Westerly School of Long Beach are sponsoring the 6th-annual handmade Valentine’s card contest for Long Beach-area students (K-12) to create lovable Valentine’s cards for the 120+ dogs and 50+ cats housed at the Long Beach Animal Care Services shelter.
More than 300 animals are expected to attend the 11th annual “Interfaith Blessing of the Animals” at sunset on Sat., Oct. 6, 2012, on the concrete boat launch ramp at 1 Granada Ave. in Belmont Shore, next to Rosie’s Dog Beach.
In an effort to reduce unwanted litters of cats, Animal Control Officers are stepping-up enforcement of the City’s mandatory spay and neuter laws for the felines. In 2009 alone, over 4,400 cats were impounded and unclaimed at the City’s Shelter.
