PET RESOURCE CENTER (PRC) ON SKID ROW

In July 2016, we opened the first pet service center on Skid Row called the Pet Resource Center (PRC). This program is delivered in collaboration with Inner City Law Center and LA Animal Services. Housed in the Inner City Law Center offices, the Pet Resource Center is currently open to pet owners each Wednesday.

The purpose of the PRC is to offer pet owners living in the Skid Row community a place to pick up free pet food or other supplies, discuss a problem they are experiencing, and receive free spay/neuter vouchers from the LA Animal Services staff member who is on site with us each week as part of the team. We communicate with social workers and case managers often. And while we all work together to address this community’s unique challenges, where about 48% of pet owners are homeless and the majority of the rest are living in motels, SROs, or in homeless shelters in the area, we try hard to help them keep their pet. On average, we help 24 pets per week.
