A One Stop Shop
for Your Animal Shelter Needs.
Pets Lifeline is more than just an animal shelter!
We know that relationships between all living things begin with a deep understanding of what it means to care for and about all members of a community. This is why we are building our programs in Human Education, Spay and Neuter, Feral Management and Dog Training.
OUR LIST OF SERVICES
SHELTER AND PROTECTION
We take in and care for stray and abandoned dogs and cats, by providing them with food, shelter, medical attention and loving attention. Shelter dogs are walked daily and receive basic obedience training while they are with us. Our resident cats and kittens are highly socialized by volunteers and visitors.
We place unclaimed dogs and cats into loving, permanent homes. All shelter animals are spay/neutered and microchipped BEFORE adoption. In addition they are seen by a vet and receive vaccinations. Shelter animals are dewormed and treated for fleas. A FREE follow up visit with a participating local vet is part of the adoption package.
LOST AND FOUND
We coordinate a pet lost and found program to help reunite pets with their owners. Pets Lifeline takes lost and found animal reports both online and at our shelter. When people report a lost pet or stray animals, we can quickly check our records and reunite owners and their pet. Keeping up to date identification on your pet is key to reuniting families.
LOW COST MICROCHIPPING
We provide free personalized ID tags for dogs and cats and offer low cost micro-chipping identification services to pet owners. Call us to make an appointment for you pet.
FOSTERING SHELTER ANIMALS
Foster families are needed to help provide temporary homes for cats, kittens and dogs. For our canine foster parents, we are please to provide them with a Canine Foster Care Training program focusing on a variety of canine behavior problems and more.
FERAL SPAY / NEUTER PROGRAM
We coordinate a program to trap, spay/neuter and maintain feral (wild) cats. Members of the community trap feral cats and bring them to Pets Lifeline for spay/neutering. The cats are then returned and maintained by a colony caretaker. We rent traps to those wishing to participate in this program.
FREE PET FOOD TO LOW INCOME FAMILIES
We provide free pet food to low income families if we have extra food donations in stock. Call us to check if we currently have extra food for your pet.
COMMUNITY EDUCATION SERVICES
We conduct ongoing community education services to raise public awareness about responsible pet ownership. We conduct workshops in local schools and for community service organizations and offer tours of the Shelter for interested groups.
Pets Lifeline hosts several spay/neuter clinics throughout the year. Clinics are only open to residents of Sonoma Valley. Both cats and dogs are welcome, though any dogs must be 25 pounds or less. Check our spay/neuter page for more information.
LOW COST SUMMER CAMPS
Each summer we provide a fun-filled Humane Education program for children. We provide information and assistance to all pet owners. We offer ongoing consulting and assistance to those who have adopted a shelter animal and to the community at large.
