Help us reach our goal

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.

In this first picture you can see our estimated cost to pay for the fair. We have received many quotes from several businesses so we think we’ve found the lowest prices in the area. We are open to suggestions for lower costs, too.

Spay Neuter Project of Los Angeles

We are pleased to announce that Spay Neuter Project of Los Angeles will be having a vaccine clinic at the 2017 Montebello Pet Fair scheduled for Saturday November 4. For those who do not know about Spay Neuter Project of Los Angeles, they are a 501c3 founded in 2007 (Happy Anniversary SNP LA!). Their first location opened in Pico Rivera on Slauson. They now have a location in San Pedro and Mission Hills, as well as a mobile unit that does weekly events in several locations. One of those locations will be our fair in November. They have spayed/neutered over 150,000 cats and dogs.

SNP LA’s vaccine clinic at the 2016 Montebello Pet Fair

SNP LA provides spay/neuter surgeries, vaccinations, and other veterinary care at their 3 locations in Los Angeles County. At their mobile clinic their focus is vaccinations and wellness checks. There is a goal to have a mobile spay/neuter clinic, but until then they are doing a great job keeping dogs and cats healthy throughout Los Angeles County.

Here are SNP LA’s mission and vision statements:

“SNP LA’s mission is to substantially reduce animal shelter euthanasia and intake by providing high quality, low-cost spay, neuter and wellness services to underserved communities in the Los Angeles area.”

“Our vision is to ensure that spay, neuter and wellness services are affordable and accessible to all pets’ families in the Los Angeles area and to create an environment in which animal shelters no longer euthanize adoptable pets.”

Those are definitely a mission and vision we stand with.

We will share more details about the vaccine clinic closer to the day of the fair. They provide low cost vaccines, microchipping, nail trimming, flea meds, and deworming. They will also have information for those who want to have their pet spayed/neutered if they were not prepared to have the procedure done with Latino Alliance for Animal Care Foundation who is hosting a spay/neuter clinic at the fair.

We are happy to have Spay Neuter Project of Los Angeles participating in the 2017 Montebello Pet Fair. Thank you for what you do SNP LA!
