Empowering pet owners and local communities to
reduce abandoned animal populations through spay
& neuter, pet retention & reclamation, and education.

We need your help. They need your love.


On August 18th there will be a nationwide push to get as many pets adopted from shelters as possible. These animals end up in shelters because their PEOPLE didn’t keep their lifetime commitment to them, not because they have failed in any way. One of the most widespread problems resulting animal abuse, neglect, relinquishment to shelters, and euthanasia is pet owners not getting their pets spayed or neutered.

That’s why we host FREE* SPAY/NEUTER CLINICS, like our upcoming PASADENA CLINIC on AUGUST 18TH! Our role in keeping pets safe, helping those already in need find homes, and clearing the shelters is PREVENTION. We’ve said it before and we’ll say it again… this is the key to large-scale, lasting change.

We also have some adorable adoptable dogs and cats available and you can see them on our website

*Bark Avenue Foundation’s Pasadena spay/neuter clinics are made possible by a generous grant from the Georgia B. Ritter Foundation.
