Doggy Day Out is a field trip program in which our currently registered volunteers can "check-out" a dog for a few hours in the morning and go on a field trip to their house, to the park, on a hike, etc.

Mission Statement

The mission of Pets In Need is to advance the no-kill movement, reduce pet homelessness, and find every dog and cat a loving home.


We accomplish our mission by rescuing cats and dogs from public shelters in the Bay Area and beyond when they are in danger of being euthanized due to space or financial limitations.

Pets In Need has shelters in Redwood City and Palo Alto. We have owned and operated our Redwood City shelter since 1993, and in 2019 we began operating the Palo Alto Animal Shelter in partnership with the City of Palo Alto.


We'll work with your schedule.
