L.A. County’s Proposal to Extend Protections for Renters with Pets
ASPCA Position: Support

On Tuesday, January 24, 2023, the Los Angeles County Board of Supervisors will vote on a resolution to extend eviction protections for tenants who acquired pets during the pandemic. If we don’t act now, countless L.A. County residents may find themselves having to make a heartbreaking decision: give up their beloved family pet or lose their home.

Under current protections, set to expire at the end of January, unauthorized pets cannot be used as a cause for eviction. Tomorrow’s decision could extend those protections.

L.A.’s animal shelters are currently overcrowded and under-resourced. Should eviction protections be revoked during these desperate times, Los Angeles could see a record number of animal surrenders, flooding local animal shelters with pets who could and should have stayed in loving homes.
