For the new year, Fire Hydrant Pet Sitting Co. set out a goal to become more involved in the community. We thought a perfect way to do that would be to support a local pet rescue. To express our love and appreciation for our rescued pets, we decided to host a Pet Supply Drive for Priceless Pet Rescue: A No-Kill Pet Shelter.
We chose this shelter because Priceless Pet Rescue is a nonprofit organization that strictly operates through donations. They do not receive any funding from the government or any of the national humane organizations once so ever. Since 2007, Priceless Pet Rescue went from hosting adoptions at local Petsmarts to opening their first storefront in 2011 in Chino Hills. Priceless Pet Rescue is motivated to lead the no-kill movement, and strives to save animals that are at a high risk of being euthanized. Their two “Orphanage’s”, are located in Chino Hills and Claremont, California.
Before posting a pet up for adoption, Priceless Pet Rescue volunteers work with each pet to learn about their past, their triggers, social ability, and aggressive triggers. Laurie Cantwell, Volunteer Coordinator at Priceless Pet Rescue, shares with us that “Every dog and cat that comes to our adoption center comes with a story, usually one we don’t know about. We try and find out as much information as we can so we can help them find the appropriate house.” Once a pet gets adopted, they are spayed/neutered, microchipped, and receive all the necessary vaccinations.
Without Priceless Pet Rescue’s hard working volunteers, Priceless Pet Rescue wouldn’t be able to help out the community the way they do. “We have volunteers who feed and clean in the mornings and afternoon. We have volunteers who run the adoption centers. We have volunteers who work on any behavioral issues the animals may have. We are always in need of volunteers. They are the key to our success,” adds Cantwell.
