Pet Life Change Day is celebrated on January 24 every year. This special day is to encourage people to adopt pets from shelters and to raise awareness about animals in need.
When you adopt a pet and make them a member of your family, everything in their world changes – and yours too. Several studies show that owning a pet reduces stress and improves mental health. Pet ownership also provides a sense of purpose and improves physical health.
DACC encourages residents to visit one of the county’s seven animal care centers and find a loving companion. Today is a great opportunity for you to get to know your local animal care center and help homeless pets.
If you’ve already adopted the four-legged love of your life, or you’re not ready to take that step, you can still help a dog or cat find the family they deserve. are
You can celebrate Pet Life Change Day in the following ways:
– adoption: Find your next pet. from one of DACC’s Animal Care Centers.
– to engage: to become a DACC Volunteers.
– Support: Promote or support the network of individuals involved in DACC care. Donate to Los Angeles County Animal Care Foundation.

“Pets bring so much joy to our lives,” said director Marcia Maeda. “National Change a Pet’s Life Day is the perfect opportunity to find a forever friend who will bring unconditional love and a lifetime of companionship and devotion.”
You can help us reach our goal of placing animals in new, forever homes by adopting today. Your kindness will be repaid many times over with the love and affection of your new family member.
