It seems like everyone has a cute dog in Los Angeles. Dogs are (wo)man’s best friend and are proven to make you happier and live longer. Whether you can’t get a pet or can’t get enough of other people’s pets, check out these 6 awesome places for animal lovers in LA.
Crumbs and Whiskers
Rescue cats and coffee await you at Crumbs and Whiskers! Sip on your beverage of choice while cuddling with rescue cats. If you happen to fall in love with one, you can apply to adopt!
Real Housewife of Beverly Hills Lisa Vanderpump began Vanderpump Dogs in 2016 after founding Stop Yulin Forever, a program which rescues dogs from the Yulin meat festival in China. Play with rescue pups, volunteer your time, and shop the merchandise in this pink paradise, you’ll never want to leave!
Malibu Wine Safari
1,000 acre Saddlerock ranch and vineyard is home to zebras, camels, and even a giraffe! Many animals head to the ranch for “retirement” after performing in Hollywood. Feed them snacks (provided by Malibu Wine Safaris), sip on wine, and enjoy your time in heaven!
Wildlife Learning Center
LA’s Wildlife Learning Center is home to Lola, a two-toed sloth who appeared on the Ellen show with Kirsten Bell and Zeus, a blind owl among many other animals.
Ten Alaskan Timber wolves are the stars of the show at the Shadowland Foundation, a non-profit that teaches Los Angelenos about the contributions of wolves. Meet and greet the wolves – they’re very friendly!
The Dog Cafe
The Dog Cafe is a halfway house for rescues looking for their forever home. Make a reservation, grab a drink, and connect with a canine. Even if you don’t end up adopting, you’re helping to socialize the pups! That’s a win-win.
