Your donations and efforts to help us raise vital funds that will make a world of difference to the more than 9,000 homeless and abandoned animals in need who come through our doors each year.
Companion animals like Rex (now Yoshi) who are abused, injured or neglected come to us for medical care and behavior treatment to help them rebuild their trust in people. Cats like Angel, abandoned at a bus stop with a broken pelvis, come to us needing immediate surgery to survive. Dogs like Copper, relinquished with severe mange, and Lucy the cat who had severe dental disease, come to us with the hope that we will heal them and prepare them for a better life.
Providing Expert Care
Our shelter medicine program provides veterinary care to more than 40% of the homeless animals who come through our doors. From treating animals with broken bones or severe dental disease to battling a life-threatening virus such as Parvo or Distemper, our medical team works with shelter staff and volunteers to create a unique treatment plan for each animal. Whether it is for a few days or a few weeks, from simple to complex problems, we give the time and care needed to mend and heal these special pets. Our veterinarians not only treat disease and medical conditions, they also control and prevent diseases within the challenging and dynamic shelter environment.
Mending Bodies and Spirits
Our team of highly skilled veterinarians, clinicians and animal training and behavior counselors work side-by-side to give each and every animal the best possible care. We help them heal and build courage and strength. We mend their broken bones and shattered spirits. We give patience, care and protection when others have let them down. We teach them how to trust again. The cornerstones of our mission lie in our ability to dedicate resources to these programs which are the difference between a new life or an uncertain future.
