Charting impact

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

Buster's Pet Fund's mission is to help homeless, rural, sick and injured Kern County animals get off of the streets and into loving homes. We also advocate to reduce or eliminate overpopulation of domestic animals.

Our organization members attend events and provide educational information to the public about how important spay and neuter is not only to their pets but to the general public as well. We also fundraise year round so we can help the sick/injured animals that end up in the rural Kern County shelters the medical attention and fostering they need to get rescued and adopted into loving homes.

Our resources are limited, but we do keep on going because it is very important to continue with our cause and to continue to save lives. Our fundraising efforts are the most important thing that we do as we are a 100% donation based organization.

We have saved literally hundreds of animals from the shelters here in Kern County since 2014. We challenge ourselves to constantly improve the way we do things and are always educating ourselves and the community.
