Pet Donation Drive a Rousing Success

DEPARTMENT OF PUBLIC SAFETY | Three large bins of pet supplies were collected during LMU Public Safety’s donation drive, thanks to the overwhelming generosity of the LMU community. The June drive, held in conjunction with National Pet Preparedness Month, gathered these much-needed items that will make a big difference in the lives of the cats and dogs up for adoption at the Michelson Found Animals Foundation.

Staffed primarily by volunteers and funded by donations, Michelson has raised more than $3.2 million in spay and neuter grants, and seen more than 20,000 animals adopted since its inception in 2005. The location also features a pet supply store and dog daycare to generate income, but donations are a crucial component of maintaining operations.

Last week, members of LMU Public Safety visited the foundation in Culver City to drop off the donations and see firsthand where the resources will go.
