At Long Beach Critters we share a collective love of animals, their owners, and the community around us. We are a no-kill pet rescue specializing in cats and dogs, and are all too aware that pet euthanization as a result of neglect, abandonment, or owner indifference is an epidemic that desperately needs a cure. We will passionately pursue every avenue available to us in the interest of uniting these endearing creatures with the owners that they so richly deserve. We will foster these pets in a loving environment while searching tirelessly to locate a permanent home. We will strive to provide a voice to a population that has none.
