Animal Hospital of Soquel is proud to support local non-profits and animal care organizations by offering medical care and services to animals in need. We work with the following organizations:
Founded in 2011, Heading Home Animal Rescue is a 501(c)3 (Federal Tax ID number: 45-1314568) non-profit dedicated to finding good homes for local shelter animals in need. Some of these pets just need help meeting their new family and getting out into the community, while others are too young to be adoptable when they enter the shelter, have medical needs, or are shy. While their needs are varied, our goal is to act as a bridge for those animals; we provide them the care, time, and love they need in order to be at their best when the right person comes along to take them home. We are few, but we are mighty, and we are committed to our community's animals.
Project Purr is an all-volunteer, nonprofit rescue organization for feral cats and kittens in Santa Cruz County. They fund a spay/neuter TNR (Trap/Neuter/Return) program, and offer resources for feral cat colony caretakers and those who want to learn more about TNR.
Santa Cruz County Animal Shelter (SCCAS) provides animal rescue, regulation and humane care that protect the health, public safety and welfare of people and animals in Santa Cruz County. They currently rescue, and ensure safe, temporary shelter, veterinary and humane care for approximately 6,000 stray, unwanted, abandoned, mistreated, neglected and injured animals each year.
BirchBark Foundation is the first of its kind in Central Coast region. While there are wonderful animal aid groups in both Monterey and Santa Cruz, there are no other organizations that are singularly dedicated to saving the lives of pets that are already in loving homes, but whose families cannot pay for all or part of the care they need to survive.
Our goal is to keep pets with their families—it’s the least we can do for the unconditional love and companionship they give so freely.
