Los Angeles: Animals in great need

Kovu A1874943
Forwarding a message I just opened 10/13/19. I used to blog such emails at a dedicated blog called lizardmarsh but stopped permanently over a year ago. This is just a one-time relapse I am having. Gorgeous Kovu A1874943 is still showing in Petharbor today 10/13 as available. He appears in some videos on Youtube. Please may he live long and happily. The shelter is the contact (Veronica Perry is the main contact at the shelter where Kovu is impounded).

Subject: Animals in great need in CA - can be adopted out-of-state

This just in.  Again, I am not the originator of the message and cannot answer any questions, especially as I do not even live in this state. Please do crosspost. The poster writes:
        I am still involved with animal rescue.  I did want to bring to your attention, especially for those of you in California or in neighboring states, that there there is an animal crisis in Los Angeles.  Although there are lots of homeless people and challenges for people in the Los Angeles area, the animals there are suffering greatly, and perhaps most of all.  This ! year, people are relinquishing their pets to the local pound in droves, and these government shelters are euthanizing healthy pets sometimes hourly.

        For example, At the East Valley Animal Services Center,  located at
 14409 Vanowen St., Van Nuys, CA 91405      (888) 452-7381    and 818-756-9323
Hours: Tuesday-Saturday: 8 am-5 pm; Sunday: 11 am-5 pm; Monday and Holidays: Closed
    they are almost beyond capacity.

   There are pets of all kinds available for adoption.  They have many types of large dogs for example, many of them purebred.  This week alone there are more than three purebred German Shepherd dogs.  The fee to adopt is modest.  Most of these dogs will never be adopted, as these are tough times for Los Angeles and gas is $5. gallon, and housing is quite ex! pensive and often does not allow larger dogs.

      It IS possible to adopt one of these dogs from the shelter, and to pay to have the dog brought to you in another part of the country, often for a few hundred dollars. You would have to discuss this with the excellent staff there.  For some people this is possible, and it will save the life of a wonderful dog.

      These are some of the deserving dogs from there.  I am told that the bewildered dogs aren't often adopted despite the fact that they would likely do really well in a loving home.

and there are hundreds of others of every description, all of them neutered or spayed.

        I pray that some of you can responsibly adopt some of these wonderful creatures.

          Thank you all for listening.   I think of you all often and hope that all of you are doing well and applying all of that knowledge you have with regard to preparedness.

         With fond wishes,
