SEAL BEACH, CA – Approx. 6.3 million pets enter animal shelters in the United States nationally each year, reported the American Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals. Sunday marked the first day of National Animal Shelter Appreciation Week, and the Seal Beach Animal Care Center is seeking donations from the community.
At Seal Beach, the SBACC provides care, protection and control for animals that stray from their homes or are abused by their owners in Seal Beach and beyond.
This week we are celebrating Hans, an adorable feline who has found his forever home.
âHans loves people and plays, and gets along with other cats,â a spokesperson for the center said on social media. âThis family applied specifically for Hans, thinking he was a great fit for them and their one-year-old cat. When they came to meet him, they didn’t even want to look at other cats or kittens. He was the one. a!”
Along with Hans, more and more cats are waiting for homes, and while the Seal Beach Animal Care Center helps them stay comfortable and happy, they still need help with bedding, litter, food and more. items needed to keep the lights on this facility.
National Animal Shelter Appreciation Week was founded in 1996 by the Human Society of the United States. It is designed to encourage the public to understand the level of work involved in caring for animals and to volunteer or provide items for their local animal shelter. The annual event also recognizes hardworking individuals who support shelters year round.
In southern Orange County, the Mission Viejo Animal Services Center provides a variety of services, including picking up injured wildlife, impounding stray dogs and cats, issuing citations, and providing a shelter for homeless animals, according to the city’s website.
