Pets 4 Troops – Honoring our Military
September 12, 2017  The City of Santa Fe Springs and the Southeast Area Animal Control Authority (SEAACA) are proud to support military personnel with an initiative called "Pets 4 Troops". This new program offers residents a complimentary pet adoption from SEAACA if they are active or retired military personnel. Pets 4 Troops helps military veterans and active personnel find and adopt the perfect pet companion. Current animals waiting to be adopted receive a second chance at life while giving our returning troops a second chance at health and happiness.

The adopted animal will be altered, micro-chipped and receive initial vaccinations. In addition, the City of Santa Fe Springs, Police Services Department will also offer the opportunity for complimentary dog training classes from a local pet store/training center.

Please contact SEAACA for further information at (562) 803-3301, extension 240 or visit the SEEACA website.

Tips for Safeguarding Your Home This Summer
July 12, 2017  With summer comes vacation time, which is why it's especially crucial to safeguard your home. In order to minimize the chance of a home burglary and protect material possessions and personal information, here are some tips to practice:

Tip #1: Burglars love unlocked or open windows which signal that an alarm system is not activated. Make sure all doors and windows are secure before leaving your house.

Tip #2: Never ignore a knock on the door! Burglars will knock on doors and if there is no answer, they will usually kick in the front door or enter through the back door. Do not open the door, but let it be known that someone is home.

Tip #3: Set up the illusion of a routine and occupancy by using light timers. However, keeping lights on constantly is a dead giveaway that you are out of town.

Tip #4: Alarm systems are effective and posting company alarm signs and window decals are compelling deterrent for burglars.

Tip #5: Use home alarm system technology with visible cameras and video doorbells. These can serve as a deterrent.

Tip #6: Be a good neighbor and watch out for other neighbor’s homes. Establishing a trusting bond will help other neighbors return the favor if you ask when you are away.
