Over the five fiscal years of 2012-2013 through 2016-2017, City of Los Angeles Animal Services had taken in an average of 52,800 cats and dogs each year, both domesticated and feral. County of Los Angeles Animal Care and Control, over the same period, took in average of 62,300 cats and dogs annually. The City of Los Angeles managed to reduce euthanization rates of impounded animals from 31 percent in 2012-2013 to 14 percent in 2016-2017. Over the same period, the County of Los Angeles also reduced euthanization rates from 51 percent to 37 percent.

One of the latest animal shelters in Los Angeles County is the $4.3 million facility opened in 2014 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.
