Long before “spay/neuter” became part of the American vernacular,  Actors and Others for Animals was hard at work providing spay/neuter education, and assistance to pet guardians. Passionately believing that pet overpopulation is the greatest causal factor of animal cruelty because it labels animals as disposable, Actors and Others is a leading spay/neuter assistance organization, subsidizing sterilization procedures for low and/or fixed income pet guardians in five Southern California counties.
Diligently working since 1971 to help animals in need, Actors and Others continues to provide a comprehensive “stimulus package” including subsidizing spay/ neuter surgeries and emergency veterinary medical treatment, promoting humane education, providing direction in the care and protection of feral cats and offering state-wide referrals of affordable spay/neuter surgeries through SpayCalifornia.org.
Actors and Others also champions pet assisted therapy in hospitals and similar facilities, and has helped thousands of such patients experience the dramatic effects a pet can have on their well-being and happiness. Currently, 29 volunteer teams visit 15 facilities, including the world-famous Grossman Burn Center at the Sherman Oaks Hospital. Pet team members include a variety of dogs, one cat, a cockatoo, lop-eared rabbit and a miniature horse.
