Pet Resource Center (PRC) on Skid Row

Many Los Angeles residents with pets are living in poverty, experiencing homelessness, or are at risk of losing their housing due to their pet. As the housing crisis worsens, more family pets are entering shelters, out of lack of resources. To help with this issue and with the combined goal of keeping pets with their families, while reducing unwanted litters, and lowering shelter intake numbers, we opened the Skid Row Pet Resource Center in 2016.

This unique public-private partnership between DDR, Inner City Law Center and L.A. Animal Services provides the following services to people and pets:

• Free spay/neuter vouchers
• Assistance with animal registration
• Legal assistance for pet-related housing issues
• Referrals to city and county social services
• Vaccinations
• Microchips
• Animal registration and ID tags
• Collars
• Leashes
• Crates
• Medical care at approved partner veterinarian clinics
• Assistance with transportation to animal hospitals
• Legal assistance for pet-related housing issues
• Referrals to city and county human-services


In addition to services provided at the PRC, we offer income-based pet boarding for those who are experiencing financial hardship, homelessness, and for veterans who are in residential treatment facilities for help with substance dependency or PTSD.
