In Los Angeles County, a new $25 million dollar initiative has been launched to keep homeless pets off the streets and save the lives of those that end up in shelters.

The ASPCA built and officially opened a new free spay-and-neuter clinic at the Chesterfield Square Animal Center on Tuesday to help lessen deaths by euthanasia. Each year, approximately 173,000 animals wind up in shelters. Of that number, just over half are adopted throughout L.A. County, while the rest are killed due to shelter overcrowding. The ASPCA plans to spay and neuter 4,000 animals this year, with that number continuing to grow in subsequent years.

The ASPCA project aims to have all of the animals spayed or neutered, to boost adoptions, to aid animal rescue groups with transportation expenses, to move animals from overcrowded shelters to shelters where they are more likely to get adopted and to help owners keep their pets if behavior or finances are salient issues. ASPCA President and CEO, Matt Bershadker, said, “Keeping animals off the street and out of the shelters in the first place puts us in the best position to end homelessness and save lives.”

Hopefully, this initiative will save as many lives of animals in Los Angeles county as possible.
