Adoptable Pets in California
Animal Helpline is an incorporated non-profit organization run entirely on donations of people who love animals just like it's Founder and President, Judith Lindley. Animal Helpline offers sanctuary to older or handicapped cats, as a no-kill shelter and retirement home. It is located in Morongo Valley California, and phone services are available free to the local area. This free service began in 1979 as easy phone-in help for people with pet problems. On the hotline, Judith lists lost and found, offers minor first aid advice, pet placement, and help referrals to other organizations or veterinarians.

In addition to these services, more than 1,500 cats have found shelter with Judith since 1979. Old cats may retire in comfort. The handicapped can relax with plenty of food and loving, daily attention. But cats are not the only animals brought to Judith's safe haven. Thirty dogs have lived 'on locations' at Animal Helpline over the years; canine numbers are small because kennel facilities are limited. In addition, a wide variety of farm animals live on the premises. Any healthy animal that is transported to Judith at home in Morongo Valley will be warmly received-even from out of state! The grounds at the shelter are open daily for visits, picnics, and tours.

Do you need to find a loving home for your pet?

No-kill shelters do wonderful work, but as a result, are often inundated with pet surrenders. In the unfortunate scenario that you have to find a new home for your pet, please read through the rehoming solution and articles on this page before contacting the shelter.

1. Feral Cat TNR Program

Many communities are embracing Trap, Neuter, Release programs (TNR) to improve animal welfare, reduce death rates, and meet obligations to public welfare.

2. High-Volume, Low-Cost Spay/Neuter

Low cost, high volume spay/neuter will quickly lead to fewer animals entering the shelter system, allowing more resources to be allocated toward saving lives.

3. Rescue Groups

An adoption or transfer to a rescue group frees up scarce cage and kennel space, reduces expenses for feeding, cleaning, killing, and improves a community's rate of lifesaving. In an environment of millions of dogs and cats killed in shelters annually, rare is the circumstance in which a rescue group should be denied an animal.

4. Foster Care

Volunteer foster care is crucial to No Kill. Without it, saving lives is compromised. It is a low cost, and often no cost, way of increasing a shelter's capacity, improving public relations, increasing a shelter's public image, rehabilitating sick and injured or behaviorally challenged animals, and saving lives.

5. Comprehensive Adoption Programs

Adoptions are vital to an agency's lifesaving mission. The quantity and quality of shelter adoptions is in shelter management's hands, making lifesaving a direct function of shelter policies and practice. In fact, studies show people get their animals from shelters only 20% of the time. If shelters better promoted their animals and had adoption programs responsive to the needs of the community, including public access hours for working people, offsite adoptions, adoption incentives, and effective marketing, they could increase the number of homes available and replace killing with adoptions. Contrary to conventional wisdom, shelters can adopt their way out of killing.

6. Pet Retention

While some of the reasons animals are surrendered to shelters are unavoidable, others can be prevented-but only if shelters are willing to work with people to help them solve their problems. Saving animals requires communities to develop innovative strategies for keeping people and their companion animals together. And the more a community sees its shelters as a place to turn for advice and assistance, the easier this job will be.

7. Medical and Behavior Programs

In order to meet its commitment to a lifesaving guarantee for all savable animals, shelters need to keep animals happy and healthy and keep animals moving through the system. To do this, shelters must put in place comprehensive vaccination, handling, cleaning, socialization, and care policies before animals get sick and rehabilitative efforts for those who come in sick, injured, unweaned, or traumatized.

8. Public Relations/Community Involvement

Increasing adoptions, maximizing donations, recruiting volunteers and partnering with community agencies comes down to one thing: increasing the shelter's exposure. And that means consistent marketing and public relations. Public relations and marketing are the foundation of all a shelter's activities and their success. To do all these things well, the shelter must be in the public eye.

9. Volunteers

Volunteers are a dedicated "army of compassion" and the backbone of a successful No Kill effort. There is never enough staff, never enough dollars to hire more staff, and always more needs than paid human resources. That is where volunteers come in and make the difference between success and failure and, for the animals, life and death.

10. Proactive Redemptions

One of the most overlooked areas for reducing killing in animal control shelters are lost animal reclaims. Sadly, besides having pet owners fill out a lost pet report, very little effort is made in this area of shelter operations. This is unfortunate because doing so-primarily shifting from passive to a more proactive approach-has proven to have a significant impact on lifesaving and allow shelters to return a large percentage of lost animals to their families.

11. A Compassionate Director

The final element of the No Kill equation is the most important of all, without which all other elements are thwarted-a hard working, compassionate animal control or shelter director not content to regurgitate tired cliches or hide behind the myth of "too many animals, not enough homes." Unfortunately, this one is also oftentimes the hardest one to demand and find.

I am in desperate need of finding loving, forever homes or Animal Rescue situation for 2 solid black male kittens & 2 black & while males with different markings, all short hair that are approximately 16 to 18 weeks old that are playful & loving; along with litter box trained. Each one will make a great addition to any loving home or a perfect match for an individual in need of an E.S.A. Born to a feral mother & being fostered by my family to keep them out of harms way at the hands of a homeless individual that is as of now no longer a threat. The mom is being spade & re-released back to her colony , however the kittens being fully domesticated would be served best by remaining with people. I have a no pet policy & am on the verge of losing the roof over my families head because of fostering. For interested parties I can be reached at (562) 708-5807 or at [email protected] com

My name is Sherry Edgar. I have four (4) 4 1/2 month old black kittens I have been trying to place in loving homes with no success. A couple of weeks ago their loving mother got out some how and ran off. Last night she came home seemingly half wild. She has turned on her own kittens as if she does not know who they are. I fear for the safety of these kittens because every time she sees them she attacks them. These poor babies are afraid of their own mother. I need to get them out of my house sooner rather than later before the mother hurts them or worse. If you can help me please contact me at (760) 220-5029, by e-mail at [email protected] or on facebook. Thanks.

I have an 8 year old pit bull/Labrador Mix. We are currently living with my brother who owns a blue nose pit bull. The two of them have always gotten along until recently. It seems that my brother's dog is starting to turn on my dog. They've had two fights; the first one was not too bad and mine ended up with a laceration. This last fight was not so good. My dog had his ear pretty much ripped off!! My brother's dog had a laceration, or a hole, in his chest. Both needed surgery and both are recovering just fine. They cannot be together any longer. We have a 4 year old and he loves these dogs, but I am terrified that one day he is going to get in the middle of them should another fight occur. This is more of a safety issue than anything else. We NEED a home for our dog!! PLEASE help. He is loyal, loving, energetic, loves kids, and just loves to be loved. If you are interested, please contact me asap: 714- 305- 7167
