Cardenas created Los Angeles' first Animal Cruelty Task Force which arrested dozens of callous animal abusers. One of the task force's first felony convictions put a known gang member away for three years for abusing a family pet.

Cardenas was the driving force behind the City's mandatory spay/neuter ordinance to reduce the number of stray and homeless dogs and cats on city streets and to decrease the number of animals euthanized in the city's shelters.
