As Pet Friends and Rescue approaches its 13th year of helping the homeless cats and dogs of San Benito County, it’s time to take a look back at what we’ve accomplished, with the help of our generous donors and volunteers.
First of all, the Pet Friends Low Cost Spay/Neuter Clinic has helped reduce the number of homeless cats and dogs in our area by providing spay/neuter surgeries for almost 2,000 dogs, over 2,000 cats, and nearly 2,000 feral cats. Aiding in this effort is the Gordon Fund, helping with the cats of San Juan Bautista, and the Maze Fund assisting with the cats of Hollister, both helping to make the Spay/Neuter services even more affordable for our county’s residents.
As a rescue and shelter, Pet Friends relies on the dedication of volunteers to rescue dogs, cats, puppies, and kittens. They foster and socialize those that are ready for homes and families, provide trap/neuter/release for the feral cats, and care for the sick and injured.
Pet Friends is a no-kill shelter and will provide shelter for our animals for the rest of their lives, should they not find the right person to take them home. Our needs are great, as food, litter, kennel supplies, and medical care, all are costs we bear in the effort to place our animals in good homes.
Please consider Pet Friends and Rescue when you donate or adopt. One person can change the world for a homeless animal. Be that person.
