The Montebello Pet Fair formed out of a need to reduce the number of animals who enter our area shelter. In 2016 14,459 dogs and cats entered the shelter. Of the dogs that entered, 91% left the shelter alive. Of the cats that entered, 53% left the shelter alive. While the cat live release rate could use some more direct work on the shelter’s part, one thing that we can focus on in the public is to decrease the number of animals who entered in the first place. 14,459 animals.
We believe that educating people on proper ways to care for their pet will bring a shift to how people view animals in our area. It won’t be an instant shift, but we can’t just sit by and hope for the best. We are committed to having our fair be a place where people make new choices that will save the lives of animals. And you can help.
We are still in the early stages of planning the 2018 Montebello Pet Fair. We are working with Metro Pets Foundation to organize this year’s fair. We will post ways to donate as soon as we have that set up. If you would like to donate please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org and we will let you know as soon as possible when we have set up the donation options.
