In 2021, PAF received a $10,000 donation from long time volunteer and San Diego branch manager Mary Ann Travnik, to establish a fund that would help financially challenged pet owners in San Diego County. Motivated by the enormous need and genuine despair she witnesses through our Hotline, and mourning the recent passing of her own “Velcro dog,” Annie (pictured above), Travnik decided on this generous act to honor her pet and support the human/animal bond. Annie’s Aid provides assistance beyond the scope of PAF’s spay/neuter subsidies on a case-by-case basis.
