Some of the DDR dogs got all dressed up for the holidays to remind everyone it’s Giving Tuesday. At the end of each year, we ask for your support to help us continue the work that we do all year long.
2019 was another busy year for us.
To date, our Shelter Intervention Program has prevented more than 13,000 cats and dogs from entering the South Los Angeles Shelter because our counselors provide low income pet owners with a variety of services and resources six days a week, with a goal of keeping people and pets together.
Our Pet Resource Center for the Skid Row community of pet owners has provided services for more than 3500 pet owners who are homeless or extremely low income, living with their cats or dogs. Thanks to a partnership with LA Animal Services, ASPCA, Inner City Law Center, we now offer veterinary care on site, once a month, often seeing more than 100 pets in a day!
With the success of the Skid Row Pet Resource Center, we expanded to Watts in 2019, and plan on expanding this model to other locations in 2020. We know that if we invest in spaying and neutering more cats and dogs, providing supportive veterinary care, and other services and supplies, we can keep more pets out of the shelter system and with the people who love them.
With a focus of rescuing shelter dogs that require medical care and senior dogs, we continue to be committed to rescuing the dogs that are overlooked by the public.
