Pets Unlimited in San Francisco does more than just something good for pets. Pets Unlimited does many good things for pets. Because of all that it does, The Jet Set Pets is happy to announce Pets Unlimited, a non-profit veterinary hospital and shelter, as its latest Featured Charity.
When I first saw Pets Unlimited, I thought it was a pet supply store. I later thought it was a shelter. Walking by again, I thought it was a veterinary clinic. Then I decided to go inside. I found out that Pets Unlimited is all of those things and then some. Located in tony Pacific Heights, Pets Unlimited raises money for cats and dogs in need by running a state-of-the-art Veterinary Center and through donations from people who care about helping animals. It believes that every cat and dog deserves a chance to live a healthy and happy life in a loving home.
From the Pets Unlimited website:
Pets Unlimited is a 24-hour Veterinary Center where a portion of every dollar you spend on the care of your pets helps support our charitable veterinary care programs and our Shelter and Adoption Center.
Our state-of-the-art Veterinary Center saves the lives of our clients’ pets, while generating critical funding to ensure that the cats and dogs living in our shelter are placed in healthy and loving homes.
Pets Unlimited’s Shelter and Adoption Center saves the lives of hundreds of injured and abused cats and dogs every year but we cannot do it alone. Our work is not possible without community support and generosity from clients and donors like you who care about saving the lives of pets in need.
Pets Unlimited boasts a 65+ year history
Pets Unlimited was born from the selfless acts of a trio of heroines in 1940’s San Francisco. When a scruffy, stray dog wandered into the yard of Mrs. Carter H. Downing, she did what any good citizen would do. She took the dog to the city pound. But she soon learned that the dog’s chances for survival were slim. Wayward pets were euthanized after only a few days unless adopted quickly.
Mrs. Downing decided to take the dog back home with her. Then she did more – she also took all the other dogs at the pound! Along with two other civic leaders, she quickly began her own impromptu adoption service, which proved amazingly successful at finding loving homes for animals in need.
More than 65 years later, this commitment to charity and caring has grown into Pets Unlimited, San Francisco’s premiere veterinary provider, where a portion of every dollar spent in our Veterinary Center supports extended shelter services, a foster family program, volunteer opportunities and community educational services, both on and off-site. Since inception, the organization has been instrumental in saving the lives of more than 250,000 animals.
Pets Unlimited is an integral part of a dog-friendly neighborhood where many businesses allow pets in the stores, have treats on hand and leave water dishes on the sidewalk. Not only do I patronize Pets Unlimited, but beginning in January will volunteer there as well by walking the shelter dogs, who I enjoy stopping to play with when I walk my Lucy. When I toured the facility, I was blown away by the wonderful accommodations provided shelter dogs and cats. They’re on par with some pet hotels I’ve visited.
I applaud the work Pets Unlimited does and encourages you to make a donation by visiting the Pets Unlimited website. Watch the video below to see how happy the animals are at Pets Unlimited. But we don’t want them in this no-kill shelter forever. They deserve loving homes. Won’t you help?
