About our federation

Local Animal Charities of America (LACA) is a federation of America's finest local organizations working to protect and enhance the lives of our four-legged friends.

LACA is proud to offer donors a wide range of organizations dedicated to the sensibilities of animal lovers. Whether you are passionate about protecting farm animals and educating humans on alternative food choices, or protecting pets and endangered wildlife, or whether your zeal is in the arena of service animals, we have a local charity that will appeal to you.

Membership

All LACA agencies are screened annually to ensure that they meet the highest standards of substantive program services, management and fiscal responsibility.

Governance

LACA is governed by a board of directors that includes representatives from member charities, donor groups, and other constituencies. All board members are volunteers serving without compensation. The board of directors oversees the administration of services to LACA member agencies and ensures that high eligibility standards are maintained. It does NOT determine how much money each agency will receive - that decision is left to the contributor. Gifts made directly to LACA are shared among all its member agencies in the same proportion as each has received donor-designated gifts.
