Notes:For almost forty years, the mission of Pet Orphans of Southern California has remained consistent. We are a non-profit organization dedicated to the advancement of companion animal welfare. We are committed to decreasing the number of animals euthanized annually in city and county shelters by focusing our efforts in these five areas: • Rescue - Saving dogs and cats in need and providing them with excellent care and shelter while they await adoption. • Adoption - Matching homeless dogs and cats with suitable adoptive guardians. • Medical - Providing information on low cost or free spay/neuter and vaccination clinics and financial assistance for severe medical need to support dogs and cats already in loving homes. • Education - Teaching responsible humane pet ownership and dog bite prevention with free presentations and handout materials to all age groups at public and private schools, community service organizations, Boys & Girls Clubs, Women’s Clubs and many others. • Training- with the number one reason for owner surrenders being attributed to behavioral problems, we have many programs geared towards behavioral modification to ensure forever placements.
