Howling Heroes LAFD Mascot Contest.

Here is a message from our friends at LAFD Foundation!

Your dog could be the next official canine mascot for the greatest fire department in the nation – the Los Angeles Fire Department (LAFD)! Nominating your dog is fun, fast, and easy. Simply submit a photo of your favorite furry friend and let us know why your dog is a hero. The suggested entry donation is $10.

$1 = 1 VOTE

Encourage your family and friends to vote for your dog; each vote only costs $1. Be sure to vote early and often!

A panel of judges (including Fire Chief Kristin Crowley) will evaluate the top 10 vote earners and select the Howling Hero of 2023!

All participation and voting proceeds will support the LAFD Foundation in funding essential equipment and programs, like the LAFD’s breakthrough Canine Therapy Program.
