Check out VIDA - vidavolunteertravel.org. THey may have space in a trip. Otherwise, there's RAVS - those are within the US and fill up pretty quickly.

Not sure this is something you might be interested in, but have you thought about maybe coming up with a form letter/cover letter to blast out to a bunch of LA vets throughout the country to see if they'll let you ride along and shadow and perhaps even help them? The money you would have spent on international airfare should more than cover a cheap domestic flight (if you start searching early enough) and temporary housing for <1 month.
