BENEFITING: Orange County Pet Rescue Center, Inc.
EVENT DATE: Sep 29, 2014
The Pet Rescue Center works the communities of California, shelters, veterinarians and animal rescue groups to save the lives of dogs and cats at risk of euthanasia due to overpopulation through education, spay/neuter and rescue programs. In this effort, we provide a no-kill, veterinary supervised temporary sanctuary for these pets while we work to locate an adopting family.
In 2013, The Pet Rescue Center saved 140 dogs and cats, all at risk for euthanasia. As a result of this effort, 125 companion animals are now living with new families. Since its inception, The Pet Rescue Center has successfully saved and adopted out 730 cats and dogs. Our motto is Rescuing Pets…Creating Families…Saving Lives.
The Pet Rescue Center operates a Pet Pantry, which provides free dog and cat food, cat litter, bird food, and flea treatment for pets owned by Seniors and the unemployed. As of July 2014, more than 50 households are receiving assistance, helping approximately 100 dogs and cats to stay in their homes.
In 2013, The Pet Rescue Center provided Youth Education to dozens of service groups, including OCKidSPCA, Girl Scouts, YMCA Indian Princesses, Team Kids, Jewish Federation and Family Services, McDowell School, and Fairmont Schools. We will continue to provide youth education opportunities through our programs.
The Pet Rescue Center provides volunteer opportunities both at our facility and through our Corporate Dog Walk program, enabling 100’s of individuals (both young and old) the opportunity to volunteer and positively impact their community.
