The Animal Pad

the animal padThe Animal Pad (TAP) is a non-profit animal welfare group whose goal is to build, operate, and maintain a no-kill animal sanctuary. The rescue dogs from high kill shelters in Southern California, provide the necessary vet care, find foster homes, provide rehabilitation, and facilitate the adoptions of animals in need into loving homes.

The group also seeks to alleviate euthanasia in the area by educating the public on the importance of spaying/neutering pets, of adopting instead of buying pets, and of treating dogs with the love and respect they truly deserve.

As a non-profit group, they are open for volunteers who wish to make a difference in the lives of companion animals in great need. Interested parties can help out adoption events, networking dogs via social media and the internet, contacting businesses for donations, planning events, transporting dogs, and more.

Moreover, community embers can also donate items such as food, beds, flea medication, de-wormer, leashes, collars, beds, and toys.
