There are sites on the Internet where you can see cats & dogs available for adoption.

Listed are Humane Organizations as well as Animal Control Shelters.

Animal Control Shelters are where the majority of animals do not find homes.
These animals need to be adopted or are in jeapardy of being euthanized.

My favorite, of course, is the group I am with:

People And Cats Together (So. Bay, Los Angeles, West LA, San Fernando Valley) Cats only.

Shelters within Los Angeles:
