A shelter pet is more than one in a million—she’s one in 2.7 million. That’s the number of adoptable dogs and cats who are still euthanized each year in the United States, simply because too many pets come into shelters and too few people adopt. The number of euthanized animals could be reduced dramatically if more people adopted pets instead of buying them. When you adopt, you save your animal and open up shelter space for another animal who might need it.
There’s a deep sleep that only comes on the first night out of the shelter. As he settles in, he gives a great big sigh. Like a weight has been lifted off his shoulders. Then he sleeps deeper than he ever has, knowing he’s safe. You get a lump in your throat as you realize how close he came. Now he is safe, safe because you fostered.
We provide spay/neuter, vaccinations, microchips, veterinary care and love for our animals until we find them a forever home. We often rescue animals needing special medical attention for injuries and/or illnesses. We are the last chance for these animals to have a happy and healthy life. But we can’t do it alone, we need your support! Please consider a donation to help us continue to serve the homeless animals of Southern California.
