Pet Orphans Of Southern California is one of the oldest active humane organizations in the Greater Los Angeles area with a private shelter. At our shelter facility located in Van Nuys, California, an average of 60 dogs and 30 cats are housed until they can be placed with new guardians. Pet Orphans has facilitated adoptions for thousands of cats and dogs since our inception in 1973. The majority of the dogs and cats at Pet Orphans have been transferred from local city and county shelters and are anxiously awaiting a new home.
Pet Orphans is 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 care and shelter while they await adoption
Adoption – Responsible matching of homeless dogs and cats with suitable adoptive owners
Medical – Low cost or free spay/neuter and vaccination services and financial assistance for severe medical need
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.
These services are carried out with a firm commitment to serve the best interests of the animals.
