As of February 19, Pets In Need has begun operating the Palo Alto Animal Shelter where we will provide animal care services for residents of Palo Alto, Los Altos and Los Altos Hills and expand our work to rescue more at-risk animals from throughout California.

This partnership will enable us to further our no-kill mission and will be a national model for the humane treatment of animals in public shelters.

Our Redwood City shelter will continue to serve as the hub of our rescue operations and will soon house a state-of-the-art nursery for our littlest and neediest kittens.

With two locations where we can shelter, care for and befriend vulnerable animals, we will save more lives than ever before.


How you can help

Today we are asking friends and supporters to Help Us Hit The Ground Running by making a donation to ensure that at-risk animals—from dogs and cats to rabbits and goats and even ducks and chickens—receive the medical care and attention they need from day one.

While the cities of Palo Alto, Los Altos and Los Altos Hills will cover the costs of caring for some of the animals we take in, Pets In Need must fundraise to provide the medical care and behavioral training necessary to save animals with special needs from being put down.

We truly appreciate your life-saving Support.
