Antelope Valley residents: In honor of Mental Health Awareness Month, @LACDMH is hosting a luncheon and question and answer session in Lancaster on Thursday from 1 to 4 p.m.

We are marking two milestones: It's Emergency Medical Services Week and the 70th anniversary of the Los Angeles County Ambulance Association! I am so grateful for our EMS professionals. 🚑

When you adopt a pet, you're not only bringing joy into your home, but you're saving that animal's life. You can make a difference in Sassafras and Chester's lives by adopting them today.

Congratulations to the Robodox, the Granada Hills Charter High School robotics team! These brilliant students were undefeated in their local competitions and went on to win the state championships.

We’re facing many challenges in public safety, especially in light of the opioid crisis, school shootings, and human trafficking. Thanks to @SouthGatePD Chief Davis and @LACoSheriff McDonnell for their insight, and congrats to the sheriff, who was given the Golden Bear Award!

Those are just regular bundles of meanness you got there, Madam Supervisor.

Awww! Thank you for promoting pet adoptions!!

Thank you for promoting pet adoptions! My family and I adopted 2 cats from the Pasadena Humane Society. A challenge we have faced, though, is that a lot of rental properties in the area don't accept pets (and it's very hard to buy). It was a real sticking point when we recently moved within the city. Is there a way to make pets more favorable for landlords through legislation?

We have 7 cats the mother that we adopted from the neighborhood gave birth and my daughter and son in law adopted 1 more, we simply can't take anymore in. But thank you for your moble efforts. Pets are so adorable, we wish ee could do more; adopt a dog, we can bearly feed our pets we love and take vare of our selves. We do need better laws to see thst homeless animals are better treated and don't have to lose their lives because some pet owner changed their mind or have no choice but to abandon their pet.

Discarded pets. So sad. Please promote education. Adopt don't shop. Breeding moratorium. Dont discard
