Animals are surrenderEd every day for very simple reasons from families who want to keep them...
By providing resources for families, we hope to reduce the number of animals surrendered by families who truly want to keep them. This effort will be a joint effort between our education program and our "Keep Them Home" program, as a large piece of the need to keep companion animals in loving homes is education on how to visit a vet, how to enact training in your home, and even education for landlords on the benefits of providing pet-friendly housing!
This program will be provided through donations of goods, services, and funding to assist families to keep their pets. Assistance will be evaluated based on need and will have a large amount of interaction between our volunteers and the families in need.
This is not a program to simply help when times are tough, it's a program to assist families in need that can provide for their animals in the long-term care they will need. As the program begins, we will be reaching out to other similar service-providers in California to gain insight and ensure programmatic success.
