Helping Pets During the COVID-19 Crisis

During the COVID-19 crisis, the Pasadena Humane Society & SPCA (PHS) has seen a huge outpouring of support from members of our community who volunteered to foster pets. While we have been fortunate to place the majority of our shelter pets into foster homes, the hard work has only just begun.

Here’s how you can support the Pasadena Humane Society & SPCA:

• Foster a shelter pet—PHS still needs special needs fosters for shy/fearful cats, large breed dogs that must be the only pet in the home and animals that need medical care. We provide all the supplies and support. If you can foster one of these pets, contact with “Special Needs” in the subject line.

• Become a community foster—If you find orphaned baby kittens, first try to reunite the kittens with their mom. If you cannot find mom, raise the kittens at your home. If you found the kittens in one of our 11 animal control contract cities, PHS will provide you with the supplies and support. If you need help, please contact, with “Found Kittens” in the subject line.

• Reunite lost pets—If you find a lost pet, try to find the pet’s owner before you bring it to the shelter. Also note that many cats are not truly lost, but are indoor/outdoor pets or are community cats who live in your neighborhood. These cats do not need to come to the shelter.

• Make a donation—We need your help to continue daily operations. You can make an in-kind donation from our Amazon wishlist or make a monetary donation online at

Thank you for your continued support during these unprecedented times.
