Pasadena Humane Society and SPCA Opens New Animal Care Center

The expanded Animal Care Center for the Pasadena Humane Society and SPCA offers affordable vaccinations and spay/neuter services.

Animal lovers in South Pasadena have something to look forward to with the opening of a newly expanded Animal Care center. The $20 million project is an expansion of the Pasadena Humane Society and the SPCA’s campus located on the corner of Del Mar Boulevard and Raymond Avenue. 

The Pasadena Humane Society provides animal control services for South Pasadena, Monrovia, San Marino, Sierra Madre, Arcadia, Glendale, and La Canada-Flintridge.

With pet overpopulation always a concern, a new spay/neuter and vaccination clinic performs 20 spay/neuter surgeries for dogs, cats and rabbits each day at affordable prices. Microchip services are also be available. Daycare and boarding services will begin in February.

The onsite pet store, Shelter Shop offering accessories and essentials will increase support for the animal care center’s services. Much needed underground parking can accommodate visitors and staff alike.

Its great that they have expanded spay/neuter capabilities, microchip services and a store to help bring in much needed funds. But I'm curious to know how many more dogs & cats can they now take in? No article I've read offers that info. While I appreciate the expanded services, the fact that this one shelter serves so many cities, without the ability to increase their intake of animals, it remains very easy to euthanize. If someone has the data as to how many more animals can now be taken in, I'd love to know. I couldn't get an answer to this question the few times I've called. Has me very curious.

The sad answer to my question...the response from Ricky WHitman, VP of Community Relations: "Because the Pasadena Humane Society is interested in decreasing the animals in shelters across Los Angeles County we increased programs not housing." While I applaude the desire to decrease animals in shelters, the fact you serve at least 5 cities and the problem has not gone away and you spend $20mm and add NOT ONE space to take in additional animals is a tragedy. To me personally, it is as irresponsible as the "owners" that cause these problems to begin with. Now I see why no one wanted to answer my question. I will cease donating to them.
