Karen Thornburgh with foster kitten

Pet Assistance Foundation has a rescue and adoption program for unwanted, stray or given up pets - sometimes from very abusive situations. The kitten season this spring has been a really busy one - we get calls all the time to come pick up litters and moms. We really need help to care for them on a temporary basis. We don't expect a foster to take an entire litter - helping us with one pet would be very much appreciated. We pay for all medical care, food and supplies - all of it. You would supply love and happy care. We hold adoptions every weekend at three PETCO stores: Downey, Lakewood, and Rolling Hills for our adoptable pets. The situation would be a temporary one for you, but is incredibly important for the play time and socialization of the pet you would give a home to. We cannot stress enough how valuable a service this would be to help a helpless animal find a forever home and loving parents.

Please- if you can help us in any way, email us at petassistancefoundation@gmail.com or you can call our office at 310-732-1230.

Mission Statement

Pet Assistance Foundation was founded in 1955 to help stop the suffering of animals caused by pet overpopulation and to promote spay/neuter efforts throughout Southern California. We do this through education and financial subsidy to low income pet owners. We also support animal rights legislation. We are supportive of other animal welfare groups and work with them to improve the lives of animals, their owners and the community.

Description

PLEASE SEND US YOUR PHONE NUMBER, SO WE MAY CONTACT YOU TO SPEED UP THE APPLICATION PROCESS.

Pet Assistance Foundation has nine branches in communities through Southern California, including contract branches in Victorville and San Diego. We have a toll free hotline that we advertise online, by brochure and through yellow page directories. Our hotline is for pet owners who are very low income to call if they need help to spay or neuter their pets. Volunteers who work on the hotline return calls, determine the financial needs of the pet owner and make a donation towards the surgery if warranted. We then assist in finding a good low cost vet in their area that takes our donation pledge. We also are a referral service for people who need help in finding a good vet for spay/neuter and other needs. We often in assist in calls that have nothing to do with fixing a pet. Some of our branches do garage sales to raise money for medical emergency calls. Our volunteers help find good vets in their area that will lower their prices for our referrals and take our subsidies. Our Long Beach branch does adoption and rescue of cats and dogs; they hold adoption events every weekend. They have people who foster the animals and help with daily care.
