Los Angeles Dodgers outfielder Joc Pederson and infielder/outfielder Matt Beaty took photos with fans and their dogs Wednesday at West Hollywood Park as part of the 17th annual Dodgers Love L.A. Community Tour.

Dodger Pet Family Photo Day also served as a donation drive. The Dodgers encouraged fans to bring canned dog food and dry cat food to be donated to PAWS/LA which assists low-income seniors and people disabled with life-threatening illnesses care for their companion animals.

On Thursday front office employees, current and former players, coaches and broadcasters will hold a day of service, joining with Habitat for Humanity of Greater Los Angeles to build playhouses for underserved children and Project Sunshine to assemble activity kits for hospitalized pediatric patients.

The tour will also include a visit to help a community affected by a recent tragedy like the team did last year in Thousand Oaks.

The 12-event tour began Monday with Dodgers alumni among the more than 1,000 volunteers helping paint, landscape and build 30 benches at Wright Middle School STEAM Magnet in Westchester.

On Tuesday, Dodger broadcaster Fernando Valenzuela visited Metro bus drivers, including some of whom drive the Dodger Stadium Express route prior to each home game.
