How does this organization make a difference?

Overview

Self-reported by organization

At Pets In Need, we provide comprehensive medical care for every animal we rescue. Rescued animals are given a medical exam, spayed/neutered, microchipped and vaccinated before placed for adoption. Once rescued, we care for an animal no matter how long they stay with us or what kind of extra care they may need.

To reduce and ultimately eliminate the pet homelessness problem, we implemented our free spay/neuter program in 2012. We provide free spay/neuter services to the pets of any California resident both at our facility as well as on our mobile surgical van. To date, we have completed more than 2,000 free spay and neuter surgeries.

Charting Impact

Self-reported by organization

Five powerful questions that require reflection about what really matters - results.

  1. What is the organization aiming to accomplish?
    Respect and Compassion: Showing by example that every life matters by providing each animal we rescue with the highest quality of care until we find them a forever home, no matter how long it takes

    Leadership: Advancing the no-kill model by example, collaboration, and education

    Community Involvement: Being a leader in educating the public about animal welfare issues, and in providing free spaying and neutering services for the pets of all California residents

    Integrity: Honoring our obligation to our donors—past, present and future—to be the best possible stewards of the organization's resources
  2. What are the organization's key strategies for making this happen?
    Free spay and neuter services - We provide our low cost services at our Redwood City shelter and free services on our mobile surgical van, which travels throughout the Bay Area to targeted communities where animal homelessness and abandonment is a chronic issue.

    Save our Seniors – We provide lifetime medical care, medicine and special food for animals adopted from PIN over the age of seven.

    Crockett Memorial Fund – PIN provides financial support and free medical care for the pets of senior citizens on a fixed income. The Crockett Fund was established by current PIN board member and co-founder, Pat Sinclair.

    Humane Education – Our Camp PIN Pals program runs through the summer, on school breaks and during holidays. The aim of the program is to teach kids ages 8-12 compassion for animals, how to care for pets, and the role of shelters in rescuing homeless, abused and neglected animals.

    Fostering – Foster families open their homes on a temporary basis by caring for litters of puppies/kittens or adult cats/dogs that have medical issues or require additional care. Fostered animals stay with their families until they are old enough or well enough to be adopted. Pets In Need furnishes food and medical care and the foster family provides the love and socialization.
