Incorporated in 1983 in the state of California as a 501 (C) (3) a Non-Profit organization, Pet Adoption Fund (PAF) is proud to be an all breed, No-Kill, Cat & Dog rescue and adoption organization, located in the city of Canoga Park, Los Angeles county, CA. PAF is staffed primarily by volunteers, and exist solely on donations. Since inception, PAF has helped shelter, rehabilitate, and find happy homes for the thousands of dogs and cats rescued from high kill shelters, and from owners who could no longer care for their companion animals.
All of the dogs and cats in our care are spayed or neutered, microchipped and vaccinated before being placed in adoptive homes.
PAF has a three-fold mission to:
- Rescue homeless dogs and cats from city & county shelters, as well as dogs and cats who are abandoned, and those whose guardians can no longer care for them.
- Place the homeless dogs and cats we rescue in loving, adoptive homes.
Educate the public about the importance of spaying/neutering companion animals in order to reduce the overpopulation of stray and unwanted dogs and cats in our communities.
Pet Adoption Fund takes pride in the safe, healthy and rehabilitative environment we provide for the homeless animals in our care. All of our dogs and cats receive a nutritious diet, walks, bathing & grooming, and quality time with shelter workers and volunteers. Many animals arrive at the PAF shelter in a state of trauma -- abused, neglected and sometimes injured. We at PAF ensure that these dogs and cats receive the medical care and rehabilitation they need to recover and have a fair chance at adoption.
However, the field of animal rescue has become considerably challenging in this troubled economy. Private philanthropic resources are shrinking, yet the numbers of abandoned dogs and cats across the country are increasing. Due to the rise in housing foreclosures and evictions, it is not uncommon for PAF to receive as many as twenty requests a day to accept abandoned animals. As challenging as it may be, we at PAF remain committed to assisting as many animals as we possibly can, within our ability. Our accomplishments over the years speak volumes, and we contribute our years of success to our highly devoted and loyal supporters and committed volunteers.
We at Pet Adoption Fund remain true to our belief that all animals deserve happiness, love and respect. Thank goodness to our supporters and our volunteers, those less fortunate ones will never have to worry about being homeless or lonely again.
