When the bids came in, we learned that building costs would be closer to $7 million, so The Friends of the Palm Springs Animal Shelter got busy raising funds for the new state-of-the art animal shelter. With the help of generous animal loving benefactors, ground was broken on the new shelter on July 7th, 2010.
On November 1, 2012, the City of Palm Springs and Friends of the Palm Springs Animal Shelter entered into an agreement allowing Friends of the Palm Springs Animal Shelter to assume operation of the shelter.
This partnership paved the way for a new model of sheltering in the City of Palm Springs, and as a result, the Palm Springs Animal Shelter is the only public shelter operating under a no-kill philosophy in the Coachella Valley.
Committed to being a humane and compassionate animal care and adoption center, the shelter does not euthanize for space, or for length of stay. As a public, open admissions shelter we provide a safe haven for ALL animals; adoptable, those who require rehabilitation and training and those requiring minor to critical medical treatment.
Friends of the Palm Springs Animal Shelter is committed to the welfare of all animals and has adopted an animal-friendly menu policy for our events. This means that we will provide vegan meals at all of the events we produce.
To meet the challenge of compassionately operating a public shelter, Friends of the Palm Springs Animal Shelter relies on donations, volunteers, community support and of course, ADOPTIONS!
