Sponsored By Tarzana Neighborhood Council, West Valley-Warner Center Chamber of Commerce, Tarzana Recreation and Parks & Councilmember Bob Blumenfield

The Annual Earth Day Celebration and Poster Contest Award ceremony that was held on Saturday, April 30, 2022 at Tarzana Park was a wonderful success and was well attended by many from the local community. Highlights included live music by School of Rock, food trucks and family entertainment, with many opportunities to learn about living green with organizations such as California Native Plant Society, Santa Monica Mountains Fund, HoneyLove Urban Beekeepers, LADWP hydration station, and Los Angeles Sanitation featured information on recycling, composting and stormwater capture. In addition, L.A. Conservation Corps. gave away more than 150 California Native Trees. Children had fun creating art projects, painting flower pots, planting native California plants, and visiting animals at the Critter Squad station, as well as playing in the inflatable jumpers.

More than 800 colorful Earth Day Posters were on display by local school children that participated in the Annual Earth Day Poster Contest. During the Poster Contest Award ceremony, the schools and students were congratulated, and the schools were presented with $250 art grants and certificates from local officials. In addition, the three students who won the best-of-show poster contest category were awarded brand new bikes that were generously donated by Trek Bicycles Woodland Hills. The four schools that participated in the Poster Contest included: Wilbur Charter for Enriched Studies, Nestle Avenue Charter, Portola Charter Middle School, and Tarzana Elementary School. This year’s Poster Contest theme Go Wild, Create Habitat with California Native Plants! was chosen to educate students about the importance of planting native California plants to support sustainability and provide habitat for local wildlife.

Posted on 06/13/2022

Image of a character in shape of water drop with days of the week calendar

New water conservation rules took effect for LADWP customers on June 1 limiting outdoor watering days to two days per week. Customers with street addresses ending in odd numbers may water on Mondays and Fridays and customers with even-numbered street addresses may water on Thursdays and Sundays, before 9 a.m. or after 4 p.m. 

Now is the time to take advantage of the water- and money-saving rebates and programs we have available to both residential and commercial customers. The less water we use now, the more we have for when we need it most.

We've got this, L.A.!

LA ANIMAL SERVICES NEEDS YOUR HELP TO ADOPT OR FOSTER A PET

Posted on 06/17/2022

LA Animal Services is Facing a Kennel Space Crisis

And We Need Your Help to Adopt or Foster a Pet

Los Angeles, June 14, 2022 – LA Animal Services is one of thousands of shelters across the country experiencing an increase in intake of medium to large size dogs. Because more pets are coming into our shelters than getting adopted or fostered each day, our six Centers are running out of available kennels for our canine companions. 

“We have taken measures each month to increase pet adoptions, foster homes, transfers of pets to rescue partners, and pets being returned home,” said Annette Ramirez, Interim General Manager for LA Animal Services. “Despite these efforts, the intake numbers continue to outpace community placements.” 

To better illustrate the current level of our shelter population, we have created a visual that indicates our current shelter capacity level. Due to the continued increase of animals, primarily dogs, into our six shelters during the past several months, we are currently at the Orange/Extreme Level. We are pleading to animal-loving Angelenos to help us find homes for the pets in our shelters by fostering or adopting. 

Your New Furry Friend is Waiting to Meet You

Our six Centers are full of adoptable pets who are ready to be a part of your family. To encourage pet adoptions, LA Animal Services will be offering reduced adoption fees on Saturday, June 18 and Sunday, June 19, 2022 for dogs and puppies; cat and kitten adoption fees will be waived thanks to a grant from the ASPCA. View pets available for adoption at laanimalservices.com/adopt.

Dogs and cats adopted from LA Animal Services join their new families already spayed or neutered, vaccinated, licensed, and microchipped. In addition, canine companions adopted from LA Animal Services are also eligible for free dog training classes at the Paws for Life K9 Rescue People & Pet Innovation Center in Mission Hills, CA. Contact [email protected] for more details.

How You Can Help

With the 4th of July holiday approaching in just a few weeks, LA Animal Services expects to see a continued upward trend of pet intakes, so as to avoid going into a Red/Critical Level, here are some ways YOU can help the pets in our care:

LA Is For Everyone!

Posted on 11/05/2021

LA is for Everyone Anti-hate Campaign.  LA for All is a creative-led campaign to stand against hate and encourage our city to speak up and speak out against hate crimes and hate incidents. The campaign meets at the intersection of art, advocacy, and community - and stands up for an inclusive LA. You will see this campaign on LA City parks, libraries, street banners, bus shelters, LA Metro bus & rail, our airports - and much more.  
 
You Can Join the Campaign, Too! The only way our city can overcome hate is when we stand together - neighbor to neighbor, community to community - in solidarity with all vulnerable communities and for the diverse city we know and love. Because in our city, we don't exclude anybody. This is Los Angeles. This is LA for All.
