2019 Long Beach Foster the 4th

Foster the 4th!

Celebrate Independence Day by Being a Hero

We all know that fostering saves lives, but did you know that you can make a huge impact with only a two-week commitment


The 4th of July season is the most deadly time in our local shelters, where they often need to euthanize current shelter residents to make space for incoming animals scared by the fireworks. 


During the week before and the week after the 4th of July, you can foster a shelter dog. 


This not only saves that dog's life but also allows the shelter to care for scared and lost dogs while their owners search for them.  Join Live Love Animal Rescue and Long Beach Animal Care Services (LBACS) to make this the best and safest 4th of July holiday ever!


Our greatest need is for fosters but you can also join us at our Foster and Volunteer Orientation to help at adoption events, collect donations and help with flyers and social media postings (looking for our Nextdoor warriors!)
