Last year alone, Marine Mammal Care Center Los Angeles treated almost 275 rescued animals right here in our backyard on beaches from north of Zuma to Seal Beach!
That’s five a week!

Fishing line, plastics and algae blooms can wreak havoc on our pup season here in the Los Angeles area between March and June.
While animals of any age can find themselves subject to harm from malnutrition, infectious diseases, parasites, toxins and traumatic injuries throughout the year, pup season is a crucial time for their survival. Our hospital can quickly find itself overwhelmed during the spring with the rescues of these creatures during their most fragile months.
These protected marine mammals are in urgent need of food, medical care and shelter – which we provide 365 days a year, and we are only able to do it thanks to the amazing support of people like you!
