PLEASE DONATE

TO HELP PETS IN NEED.

As the only municipal shelter in the greater Coachella Valley operating under the no-kill philosophy, we take in nearly 4,000 pets annually. In addition to providing a safe haven to every pet who enters our doors, we provide the highest standard of medical care.  This requires a tremendous amount of staff and volunteer effort, and continuous funding.  Friends of the Palm Springs Animal Shelter is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization. Tax ID 33-0731853. Please contact our development office at 760.832.6231 with questions.

LOVE FUND

SPECIAL MEDICAL NEEDS

The Love Fund helps us cover the costly medical treatment for critical care animals who arrive at our door. Bolt, pictured here is a Love Fund alumni. Found in a parking lot, covered in first, second and third degree burns, a good citizen turned him in. It took over six months for Bolt to recover, and to trust humans again. The gift of time is something most public shelters cannot give. Given Bolt's medical needs and reactive behavior towards humans, he would have been euthanized at a traditional public shelter. But, we were able to give him a second chance, thanks to your support. Bolt has been adopted, and is living the good life with a very special family!

TNR PROGRAM

Trap-Neuter-Return

The 4,500+ neighborhood cats you see around Palm Springs are often homeless, sometimes abandoned by their previous owners. Many are offspring of these forgotten felines. Most have had little or no contact with humans and are fearful of people, and therefore cannot be adopted out as pets. You can help manage the homeless cat population by supporting our Trap-Neuter-Return (TNR) program. It ends reproduction, stabilizes and reduces feral cat populations, improves cats’ lives, and reduces our annual intake of kittens at our shelter.

TNR COLONIES

Cat Colony Management

Our work isn't always complete after TNR. Occasionally, there are situations where it's unsafe or inhumane to return cats to their neighborhoods without supportive care.  Examples include: the sudden passing of a caregiver, the sale of a home where a TNR colony exists, or low income neighborhoods.  These are complicated situations.  We have over 20 volunteers who provide daily food and water for these felines in need.  Volunteers monitor the colony, watch for unaltered cats (to provide immediate TNR), and look for injured or sick cats (to provide medical care).  Your donation to the TNR Cat Colony Management will assist more then 250 homeless cats currently under management.
