Petfinder Foundation

Petfinder Foundation

The Petfinder Foundation helps homeless pets by saving lives through adoptions, helping shelters prepare for and recover from disaster and working to help make shelters across the country more sustainable. The Foundation provides direct funding as well as training/education and grants of equipment and supplies so that hundreds of thousands of homeless pets have happier lives and so that the thousands of shelter and rescue folks who work with them can better perform their jobs.

Villalobos Rescue Center

Villalobos Rescue Center

Villalobos Rescue Center works ceaselessly to give pitbulls another chance in life. Each and every dog taken in gets spayed or neutered and is given any medical treatment necessary. We work patiently to reacclimatize fearful dogs to the loving care of a human, so that they may eventually be adopted. In some cases, these dogs have never had a kind word or touch, and it is a slow process. After determining temperaments and compatibility factors, we begin that long search for the perfect home.
