If you have room in your heart and your home to provide a Forever Home for a furry friend in one of our shelters, visit a local shelter or click one of the links below to adopt your new family member.
In case you weren’t there, with 500 of Theresa’s other best friends, here’s a clip that was shown prior to Theresa receiving the SNP|LA Catalyst Award for her contributions to spaying/neutering and animal welfare at the grass roots level. It was a great event and we hope to see you all there next year! Please make a donation to Pedro Pet Pals so Theresa and our group can continue this important work!
In case you haven’t already heard, Pedro Pet Pals received an amazingly generous grant from the Hyla Marrow Trust that enabled us to purchase a building in San Pedro: 395 W 7th St. Additional funds were made available to us and we have a $400,000 loan in place.
THE LENDER WILL MATCH “DOLLAR FOR DOLLAR” ANY DONATION DIRECTED TOWARDS THE BUILDING/LOAN FUND! We have already received a commitment of $500 from one of our friends so we’ve started the process of paying off this obligation. Donations can be made on our website, checks can be given or mailed to Theresa and we now accept Venmo.
Theresa and our Board’s vision for this facility is that it will fill two serious gaps in our community: a welcoming space to provide for the adoption of homeless animals as well as a place for the delivery of affordable, basic veterinary services in partnership with other animal supporters.
We are in the process of some initial clean up and preparation so that we can welcome you and others with the goal of giving you an early (and COVID-safe) view of the property before it’s developed and ready for its debut.
In the meantime, we would like to express our deepest appreciation to the Hyla Marrow Trust and its Trustee, Rita Topalian, for making this dream a reality and supporting Pedro Pet Pals in our mission to help animals in need in the Harbor and South Bay areas.
So get out your cameras and submit your pics for PPP calendar! Maybe your dog or cat or tortoise will be picked for the 2021 calendar!
We’ve started our 2021 Calendar photo contest and would love to see your pets included!
The top vote-receiving cat and dog will be featured on the front of their respective calendar and the month of their owner’s choice. The next 11 top-vote receiving cats and dogs will each be featured on for a month.
You can also sponsor your pet for a day and receive a free calendar for each day sponsored – that way you can be sure that your pet will be included in the 2021 calendar (days are on a first come first served basis).
Please be sure to use a high resolution photo!
Thanks for your support and we hope to see you dog/puppy/cat/kitten in our 2021 Calendar!
