Introducing our new blog, From the Trenches

After being left behind when their family moved away, these brothers survived for months on scraps thrown over their fence by neighbors. They suffered from demodectic mange, kennel cough, staff infection on their skin and starvation. After many months of treatment and TLC, both were adopted into excellent, loving homes. 3

Thank you for visiting Pet Assistance Foundation’s new website. We’ve titled this blog From the Trenches, because, in addition to commentary on a range of pet-related topics, we plan to bring you real stories from the frontlines of humane work in Southern California today.

As a grass roots, volunteer-driven organization, we are hands-on and in the thick of things. Our hotlines handle over a thousand calls a week from people requesting help for their animals, or homeless animals in their communities. For many of us, our home phones also ring non-stop with urgent pleas for assistance.

The stories won’t always be pretty, but they will be real. They will show the truth of what life is like when you’re born into a world you can’t survive in alone, and nobody wants you. They will tell what it’s like to fight for these lives, to feed and clean and medicate and house and comfort and console, to give up your nights and weekends and money and often part of your home to try and find homes for them.

So no, not pretty, but maybe something else. If we tell the stories well, as they deserve to be told—passionately, earnestly, candidly, each worthy of an animal no one’s ever paid attention to before—maybe, just maybe, they will be beautiful.

After many months of vet care, good nutrition, twice weekly medicated baths and the low stress environment of their foster home and pack mates, Sydney and Jupiter recovered beautifully and were both adopted.
