Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals Los Angeles (spcaLA) is in need of food for the animals in their care and is appealing to the community for pet food donations or the funds with which to purchase food. Donations can be dropped off at any spcaLA location, shipped direct from spcaLA’s Amazon Wish List, or made at

spcaLA needs wet and dry pet food for kittens, cats, dogs, and puppies, as well as cat litter.

“spcaLA works with local and national pet food manufacturers and retailers to obtain donated food and litter,” said Madeline Bernstein, spcaLA President. “However, this season’s need has proved greater than supplies available at the present time, and we’re hoping the community can help.”

spcaLA uses an average of 60,000 pounds of pet food a year. That feeds about 500 animals a day at spcaLA’s two pet adoption locations, plus animals in the care of Long Beach Animal Care Services.

Unopened pet food donations can be dropped off at any spcaLA location during business hours: 7700 E. Spring St., Long Beach 90815 (562) 216-2542; 12910 Yukon Ave., Hawthorne 90250 (310) 676-1149; 5026 W. Jefferson Blvd., Los Angeles 90016 (323) 730-5300 or ship directly from spcaLA’s Amazon’s Wish List available at

For anyone interested in starting a pet-food-drive at their school, club, office, or place of worship, please contact spcaLA at or call (323) 730-5300, x3253.

There is no national SPCA, parent organization, or umbrella group that provides financial support to spcaLA. Donations run programs and services including Cruelty Investigation, Disaster Animal Response Team, Humane Education, and a variety of shelter services.
