Charting impact

Four powerful questions that require reflection about what really matters - results.

Support pets that belong to homeless and low income people. Increasing rates of spay and neuter, while decreasing the number of pets surrendered to the shelter.

Our strategy of meeting pet owners where they are today, offering resources, and services that support pet ownership. We have counselors on site at the shelter. We host community vaccination clinics, and operate pet resource centers in areas where pet owners do not have access to veterinary services.

We are capable of providing services to homeless and low income pet owners because we have more than 20 years of experience, serving some of the most vulnerable pet owners often in a time of crisis. We have unique partnerships with other welfare agencies and for profit and non profit veterinary hospitals.

We have prevented more than 13,000 pets from entering the South Los Angeles Shelter. We have provided free spay and neuter surgeries to more than 10,000 dogs in the Compton community. We have provided low income communities with free wellness care for more than four years, with locations operating in some of the poorest areas of Los Angeles County.
