Our Impact

The Santa Monica Animal Shelter intakes approximately (per year) :

  • 300 Dogs

  • 200 Cats

  • Occasional other animals such as rabbits, birds and reptiles.

These animals include lost and stray pets, injured animals, as well as animals from other facilities in an emergency. For example, many animals were assisted in the recent Woolsey Fire affecting nearby communities in Malibu, California.
