LB Animal Care Services sponsors drive for safe, healthy chew toys

The City of Long Beach Animal Care Services receives many requests regarding ways to volunteer to help the animals at our shelter. Currently, Animal Care Services is promoting “A Toy for Each Animal” to improve health and wellness. Chew toys like the Classic Kong help keep animals’ minds and bodies engaged, leading to greater health and a higher rate of adoption.
Animal Care Services has implemented a new program for collecting all sizes of red, rubber Kong Classic toys for shelter dogs in the Animal Village facility. The chew toy is indestructible and safe. It can be easily cleaned and disinfected after each use.
All sizes of Kong Classic toys can be purchased directly online at or at pet stores. Either drop them off at the P.D. Pitchford Animal Shelter (ask for Long Beach Animal Care Service) or have them shipped directly to the following address:
P.D. Pitchford Animal Shelter
7700 E. Spring Street
Long Beach, CA 90815
