Issues: Animals

Mission: PAL Animal Sanctuary (dba PAL Humane Society) was formed in October 1993 by a small group of people who were concerned about the well being of the unwanted animals of the Victor Valley. On February 4, 1994 the State of Califonia and the Federal Government granted PAL their non-profit status. PAL provides care, refuge and new homes for abandoned, abused and owner relinquished animals, works with the senior community by providing pet food each month for over 374 senior's pets and with grants provides medical care for indigent seniors pets. PAL has an extensive humane education program (schools, libraries, prisons) and welcomes school age children as volunteers to enrich their lives through animals. PAL has a Humane Officer on staff (one of two in San Bernardino County) for cruelty investigations. Our short term goal is to develop a spay/neuter program using vouchers, and to continue our work with the seniors of our community by offering more services.

I don't really have a story, but I have known others that do have a story. The stories are heartwarming, tear filled, even heartbreaking at what these dear creatures have endured before P.A.L. rescues them. I have watched and listened to the caring and dedicated personnel and volunteers at the Apple Valley P.A.L. group. The High Desert can be a very harsh place for abandoned and stray animals. We have the intense heat with very few water sources for animal life. Freezing temperatures and worst of all for strays or abandoned animals is the constant threat of attack by natural wildlife. The P.A.L. people remember these 4-legged souls deserve to be warm, fed, loved and living in a safe enviroment. This takes time and money. Time they give in abundance. Funding, they don't haven in abundance. That is why P.A.L. Apple Valley needs donations. Their doors need to be kept open.

I love Pal Humane Society and the work they do here in the High Desert. It breaks my heart to see so many abused and deserted animals and I can tell that Pal gives their all to protect these wonderful little creatures. I have attended one of their fundraisers and was very impressed. A great organization!!!

I can't tell you how much our community of the High Desert, California appreciates the great job that PAL is responsible. They continue to struggle through low donations and forced relocations and yet the animals are always their first priority! The PAL organization is an outstanding non-profit organization and one I hope continues to find their way in our current economic times. It seems more animals are in need during people's strife, so the PAL agency is in greater demand than ever.

Staying abreast of the programs available through PAL. Sharing the information to others to promote the great works being achieved through this non-profit organization.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

Collaborate with the local newspaper for print time to continuously promote the mission of PAL. Reach out to high school aged volunteers to help with the well being of the pets under the care of PAL. I love the dine and donate opportunities that PAL incorporated, I think promoting this fund raising opportunity through print in the newspaper at no cost to PAL could help get the word out more.
