Mourning the Loss of Harold Meyerman

The Board of Directors of the Friends of the Palm Springs Animal Shelter were deeply saddened to learn of the passing of Harold Meyerman. Harold, and particularly his wife Dorothy, have been long-time supporters of the shelter, and are cherished benefactors. Our hearts go out to Dorothy in this time of great sorrow. It is a sad day for the City of Palm Springs, but it is brightened by the memory of all the positive changes Harold has made in our wonderful city. His legacy will live on.

Friends Pet Project: Food Bank Opens

The Friends Pet Project: Food Bank opened it's doors earlier this month for a soft opening, delivering pet food to clients of the Bodhi Tree at the close of the holidays. Board member James Lance said of that first deliver, "Many of our clients were so grateful for that delivery, they cried."

Last weekend we prepared for our next client delivery, AIDS Assistance Program. Food Bank Coordinator Amie Foy was joined by our volunteers, board members and Pam Lyford who gave us the challenge grant to get started, to pack our first order of pet food for AAP. It was a magical day, that left everyone feeling very accomplished and grateful for the opportunity to improve the lives of pets who need our help.  

Pam Lyford rolls up her sleeves and starts packing!

AAP delivery, ready to go out!

Meet Bolt {Love Fund}

Meet Bolt, our most recent critical care patient, benefitting from our Love Fund. Bolt was found in a parking lot with severe burns and injuries, and dropped off at our shelter by the people who found him. He is safe with us, and will continue to receive the best medical care until he is fully healed.  He has undergone an initial surgery, but has many more to go.  As you can imagine, he is scared and untrusting of humans, but he is beginning to get used to us.  The images of his arrival and progress are graphic, so we will not share them here. A video detailing his injuries at arrival and after the first surgery can found on our You Tube Channel here: http://youtu.be/05zByNZHA44

Update on Patch!

We are thrilled to share that a Patch is thriving in his new foster home.  After three years as a shelter dog, living in a foster home has been a much needed step in his journey. Our volunteers Jeff & Sammy who lead our pack walks on the weekends, recently offered to foster Patch and we are filled with happiness and gratitude with each update they share!
With the guidance of our trainer, Manuel Guerra, Patch met GG and they hit it off.  Soon after, Patch began spending the nights and weekends with Jeff, Sammy and GG.  Patch is honing his skills on really important dog duties like riding nicely in the car, going for walks in the neighborhood, waiting for dinner, and lounging on the sofa with her humans.  GG is a great teacher.  Experiencing a positive, loving and balanced home life is new for Patch and he is responding well to his new foster family.
We are still looking for a perfect forever home for Patch, and will continue to offer support to his new family. If you would like to find out more about Patch, please contact us today: 760-416-5718

PSAS Kicks off New Year with New Award!

We are thrilled to be recognized as Shelter of the Month by Animal Place!  The Animal Place Food for Thought campaign is designed to help organizations adopt animal friendly menu policies, and recognizes shelters, rescues and other animal welfare organizations who are acting in accordance of their missions.  

Over the last several years Friends of the Palm Springs Animal Shelter has been informally transitioning to an animal friendly menu policy for FPSAS events and those sponsored by community partners. This month, we made it an official policy, and are looking forward to a truly compassionate 2015. 

Thank you Animal Place for recognizing us, we are honored to be included in such a wonderful group of animal welfare organizations.  We've reposted the article below, but urge you to visit the Animal Place website and blog to see what wonderful work they are doing and other Shelter of the Month winners.
