Mission: Since our begging in 1985 Save A Pet,Inc has grown considerably. To date we adopt over 1000 animals a year, so another 1000 a year come in. We have built a private vet clinic for homeless pets to insure all are spayed before adoption and to care for the City of Desert Hot Springs sick and injured strays. We also provide a place where the city can have it's animals fixed. This co-operation with the city of DHS has resulted in 0% of all adoptable pets killed due to over population. Two years ago it was at 75% to 80%. Our goal is being met. We are a volunteer organization and have Disabled children from Riverside County School District walk, pet, and brush our lifers. On alternate days the foundation for the Retarted come and interact with counselors to supervise the children's smiling faces.

All of these reviews are out of date. Tom Daves and his family are no longer at the shelter. The rats left when he left it was an easy fix for the new management. This is an old shelter that had to be extensively improved, and has been done so. The remaining staff are kind and dedicated to the animals. Save-a-Pet quietly does much good work un- announced and rescues many animals from the city kill shelters. 400 dogs and over 200 cats found loving homes last year. It has been 30 years a no kill shelter, and now implements a low cost clinic for spay and neuter and a feral cat program. There are many thousands of animals that owe their life and happy home to this shelter. It is so easy to criticize.
