Even though Echo Park has our own wonderful animal services group (the Echo Park Animal Alliance), the nearest animal shelter is the North Central Shelter located on Lacy Street. And they can come in handy if you’ve found someone’s (or lost your) best buddy late at night.

We can now welcome the shelter into the 21st century – because they now have a Facebook page!

But here’s your fair warning – it will tug at your heartstrings. I mean, just look at those kitty photos!

This cutey caught our eye on the Echo Park Animal Alliance Yahoo! group. His name is Patch, he’s 10 months old, and was surrendered by the owner to the North Central Animal Shelter because they had no time – unfortunately he’s been there since April 30, so he needs to get adopted or fostered ASAP.

His shelter ID number (which you can search here) is A1208851.

Patch is an unaltered male, white and yellow brindle German Shepherd Dog and American Staffordshire Terrier. Good with kids, needs some help socializing with other dogs, and isn’t aggressive “just barky.” There’s a video of him to show you just how cute he is!

Patch has been fostered! But he still needs a permanent home. Contact us if you’re interested in adopting and we’ll get you in touch with the right people.

The North Central Animal Shelter is having a “Chip-A-Thon” on Sunday, June 26, where you can get your pet chipped for very, very cheap!

Bring your pet from 11:00 am – 2:00 pm on Sunday to the shelter and pay just $15 – includes the chipping and the registration (trust me, this is very inexpensive!).

Getting your pet chipped is very important – if they lose their collar or escape from the house, this is the best way to get your loved one home!

The North Central Shelter is located at 3201 Lacy Street.

The Chip-A-Thon is sponsored by Southern California Veterinary Medical Association (SCVMA), HomeAgain and Avid.
