Animal control agencies in Los Angeles County process more than 500,000 animals each year. Most are stray or abandoned pets. Only 25 percent of these animals are placed or purchased. Those not so fortunate are destroyed. - Source: Los Angeles County Department of Health Services


One of the latest animal shelters in Los Angeles County is the $4.3 million facility for the Pasadena Humane Society. It is considered one of the best in the country. In addition to a few new additions, the shelter is actually a renovation of the historical building that the society has occupied since the 1930s.


In 2015, the Pasadena Humane Society opened the $3 million Neely Cat Center to provide shelter for up to 200 cats with emergency needs, a special area for feral cats and a protective area for kittens too young for adoption. The facility was funded by the William R. Payden Philanthropic Trust. The center's name commemorates Neely, William Payden’s Siamese cat for 18 years.
