LA County Department of Animal Care & Control (DACC)
Statistics through Fiscal Year 2005-2006 for the DACC's Carson Shelter
The City of Torrance does NOT have an animal shelter. The City contracts with LA County for sheltering services. Animals without ID tags who cannot be returned to their homes are taken to the LA County/Carson shelter, located at 216 W. Victoria Street in Carson (two blocks east of Figueroa & 190th).
According to information provided by the LA County
Department of Animal Care & Control, they took in more than 85,000 animals in
the fiscal year ended June 30, 2006, including nearly 17,000 at the Carson shelter
(which services Torrance). On average, every day in FY 2005-2006, 7 dogs and 3 cats
were adopted from the Carson shelter; 8 dogs and 12 cats were euthanized there.
The Fiscal Year (FY) begins on July 1 and ends on June 30.
