Nonprofit Overview

Causes: Animal Protection & Welfare, Animals

Mission: Promote humane treatment of all animals.

Programs: Humane education-our program has been approved by the long beach unified school district. At no expense to any school, we designed a course of instruction and provided an instructor and materials to teach humane education to school children. In addition, we have gifted thousands of books to school libraries, public libraries and advertised in the media.

other programs include food and medical expenses for local animal control animals, adoption and rescue expenses, and meds for other local animals in dire need.

spay-neuter incentive program (snip)-this is an outreach program to provide financial assistance to those of limited means-we either pay all spay/neuter veterinarian expenses including innoculations or we subsidize the majority of the expenses. This is done via a voucher or coupon system of distribution or advertising.

Star was a mascot cat in a nursing home. She was always getting an eye infection, it appeared that her right eye had been poked out as a kitten, she was very sweet but, the nursing home refused to spend any more money on her. Star was also full of fleas and obviously had worms. Friends of Long Beach Animals were contacted by an employee and FOLBA took care of the surgery for her eye, with the advice of the veterinarian it was sewed up so no more infection would set in. Friends also took care of her other medical problems and found a permanent home for her that would take proper care of her for the rest of her life since the nursing home had lost interest in having her live there. She is deeply loved and now is in a forever home!

Friends of Long Beach Animals helped me find my permanent home. It took a while but, I sure am greatful for their help and kindness. I have been able to grow into a mature (maybe a bit awnry) cat but, feel I have fallen into a lap of luxury. I will be forever greatful.

I can't thank Friends of Long Beach Animal enough for the role they played in uniting me with a homeless and near death little miniature pinscher. She has a forever home now and we love her so much!! This organization works tirelessly to end pet overpopulation, teach children and adults humane education about animals, helps animals in need, and is a great asset to the animals and people of Long Beach.
