and free spay/neuter programs in Los Angeles and surrounding counties, as a key
component to reducing the number of animals in shelters. The Foundation also

kill shelters and rescues facilities throughout the country. To date the
Foundation has funded the transport of over 4500 animals out of high kill
shelters to areas where they are rapidly adopted.
