In 2016 we decided to do all we could to keep pets out of the public shelters in the first place. We started an intervention program at the overcrowded Lancaster and Palmdale shelters through which we contracted with the LA County Dept of Animal Care & Control to enter into a Safety Net Program. We have a Lange Foundation employee inside the shelters at all hours, when they are open, to do all we can to prevents owners who think they have no other recourse other than surrendering their pets to the shelter system. We provide medical care, food, supplies, training, and financial assistance for redemption fees. This has resulted in a dramatic decrease in the number of impounded pets.
