L.A. Love & Leashes is the only non-profit-run Shelter Spot dedicated to finding homes for dogs and cats still living in L.A.’s city shelters! 

Created by the non-profit Friends of L.A. Animal Shelters, L.A. Love & Leashes is located inside Healthy Spot in Santa Monica, and started as a way to showcase shelter pets in a more welcoming, serene setting than the typical local shelter offers. The animals are more engaged and less anxious, and potential adopters have an easier time connecting with the individual dogs and cats. The fundamental focus of L.A. Love & Leashes is to help our city shelters save more lives by reaching large numbers of people who might not otherwise visit our shelters, thereby increasing the number of animals adopted. 


All adoption fees collected by L.A. Love & Leashes go straight to the city shelters, which means that donations - which are always much needed and incredibly appreciated - are the sole means of support for our Shelter Spot.

There are so many ways to donate! Want to make a donation in someone's honor or memory? Find out more here.

Who's up for adoption? Who got adopted?

We update our Instagram and Facebook pages daily. Check ‘em out!

All of our dogs and cats are still living at the shelter and come to us daily looking for a new home and a loving family! Those not adopted return to the shelter at night.  As always, all dogs and cats are spayed or neutered, vet checked, vaccinated and microchipped.
