If you’re looking for the heart of a city, you don’t need to go any further than their local animal shelter. There you’ll find caring locals giving their time freely to help cats and dogs in need. Pet Adoption Fund in the city of Conga Park, California is a shelter that walks the walk. Founded in 1983 this non-profit, no-kill shelter is a safe haven for dogs who need vet care, rehabilitation and a ton of love. Many of the dogs that arrive at this shelter have seen the world through sad eyes.
Re-homing policies are carefully thought out to ensure a dog is placed in the perfect family environment. Every dog under their care is spayed, neutered and vaccinated. They are also micro-chipped and have their own tag and collar. PAF are on a mission to educate the community about the importance of keeping the pet population in check. Owning a dog is a commitment and responsibility for life, so all care is taken to match shelter dogs with the perfect guardian. Their motto “Our Big Difference Is Love” changes the future for rescued dogs.
With tough economic times, the shelter can be pretty full some months, but that doesn’t faze the volunteers. They even go into other shelters to bring back dogs that may need a little extra help to find a home. Check out their newsletter on the website for great pet advice and updates on dogs needing a new home.They are situated at 7507 Deering Avenue, Canoga Park, CA. Shelter opening hours for viewing dogs are 1 pm – 6 pm, Tuesday to Sunday. The shelter survives on the goodness of others by way of volunteers and donations.
