Palm Springs, CA

The Friends of Palm Springs Animal Shelter located at 4575 E Mesquite Ave in Palm Springs is having a June Adoption Special.

Imploring those to consider adopting an animal, they wrote:

“Summer is finally here, and unfortunately that means adoptions are slowing down as folks go into vacation mode. The homeless pets at Palm Springs Animal Shelter don’t have the luxury of a summer break. For them, the slowdown in adoptions sadly means they face a longer stay in the shelter 🙁

We need ALL ANIMAL LOVERS to continue to visit and adopt these wonderful pets this summer! So, adoption fees will be HALF OFF for the remainder of the month of June! Please help us get these wonderful friends into homes!”

Friends of the Palm Springs Animal Shelter is a non-profit 501(c)(3) organization, which operates the city’s animal shelter. The Palm Springs Animal Shelter is an open admissions municipal shelter serving the city of Palm Springs and providing programs for animals, pets and pet owners across the Coachella Valley.

Since 1996, Friends of the Palm Springs Animal Shelter has been actively raising funds to help the Palm Springs Animal Shelter with operational needs. The original shelter was built in 1961, and was woefully inadequate in meeting the needs of the current animal population of Palm Springs. In 2009, the City of Palm Springs allocated $5 million in a capital improvement bond and the process of designing a shelter that would stand as a model for Southern California began.

On November 1, 2012, the City of Palm Springs and Friends of the Palm Springs Animal Shelter entered into an agreement allowing Friends of the Palm Springs Animal Shelter to assume operation of the shelter.
