PALNV believes that no pet should go hungry! Our vision is to ensure that pet food is available to any pets in need; reduce the pet overpopulation problem in our community through our spay/neuter and related programs; continually improve the welfare of animals; and provide resources to assist community members keep their pets at home.

Our Pets-in-Need Program provides free dog and cat food either delivered or picked up to folks who are veterans, disabled, homeless, homebound, or otherwise economically challenged.

Our Fix-a-Pal Pogram issues dog or cat spay and neuter vouchers to dramatically reduce the out-of-pocket cost for owners, thereby, reducing the pet overpopulation and stress on pet shelters.

Our Rescued Treasures Cat Café provides a home-like environment in which visitors can play with a volume of cats and kittens toward the ultimate goal of adoption. PALNV participates in the Greater Las Vegas Valley "Trap/Neuter/Release Program" by providing housing for felines removed from our streets, as well as vaccinations, spay/neuters and other health testing.

Our Rescue Bank Program gathers dog and cat food in our warehouse for eligible non-profits to purchase pet food at a fraction of its cost.

PALNV has been in business since 1993. The company started in Victorville, CA and moved their operations to Las Vegas in 2014.
