Dog adoption and cat adoption saves lives. Adopt a dog or adopt a cat and you'll have a friend for life! Contact us, or contact another local humane society, animal shelter or SPCA.
The statistics are sobering: Together, one unspayed female dog, her unaltered mate and their offspring can produce 67,000 dogs in six years. Even with its prevalent spay/neuter programs, the United States euthanizes more than 6 million dogs and cats each year. Through our Shelter Support Program, we work in partnership with local shelters to reduce this number by raising public awareness about the overpopulation crisis faced by shelters, facilitating rescue and adoption of sheltered animals, and, in the process, bringing identity and dignity to the many lives that would otherwise pass anonymously through an overburdened animal control system.
Across the border, we sponsor a regular Spay/Neuter clinic to provide spay/neuter services to families who could not otherwise afford them, and through our Pererra program work to provide a humane and gentle passing to pets who have no other options.
For pets that are part of our Shelter Support Program at either the Baldwin Park or Downey shelters, you may also contact or visit the shelter directly. For more information on our Shelter Support Program, visit http://www.unitedhope4animals.org/about-us/shelter-support-program/.

Why should you adopt?
Dog adoption and cat adoption saves lives. Adopt a dog or adopt a cat and you'll have a friend for life! What is the difference between adopting a dog, adopting a cat, adopting a kitten or adopting a puppy versus getting dogs for sale, cats for sale, puppies for sale or kittens for sale from a dog breeder or a cat breeder? When someone is breeding puppies or breeding kittens, they are creating new dogs and cats who need homes. Some people are interested in a very specific breed of dog, cat, puppy or kitten and they think the only way to find that specific breed is to buy a dog for sale or buy a cat for sale from a puppy breeder or a kitten breeder. Yet animal shelters are filled with dogs and cats who must find homes. So rather than buying a dog or puppy for sale from a dog breeder or buying a cat or kitten for sale from a cat breeder, we encourage people to adopt a dog, adopt a cat, adopt a puppy or adopt a kitten at their local animal shelter, SPCA, humane society or pet rescue group.
