PALS has launched a fundraising campaign on to help raise money to cover the expenses of surgery, and rehabilitation, for Cody! Cody suffered a severely fractured left leg after being struck by a vehicle here in Lodi. The driver of the vehicle that hit Cody did not stop, but, fortunately, a concerned citizen stayed by Cody’s side until help arrived. To read more of Cody’s story, please click here!

Update! Cody stopped by for a visit this week, and he was beyond thrilled to hear that we’ve already raised $1,050.00 for his Surgery and Rehabilitation Fund! To read more and see new pictures of Cody’s progress, please click here!

 To make a donation, please visit Cody’s Surgery and Rehabilitation Fund page on by clicking here! Thank you!

 To date (June 6, 2016), we have raised $1,420.00 for Cody’s Surgery and Rehabilitation Fund, leaving us$1580.00 short of our  fundraising goal to cover the costs of Cody’s surgery and rehabilitation. If you have not yet done so, please consider making a  donation, today!

 Baseball’s back, and the Lodi Crushers and PALS are bringing you the opportunity to take in America’s pastime and help raise money for the stray and abandoned animals in Lodi!

We need YOUR help!

As we’ve previously posted, PALS has an extraordinary number of kittens in our care (now more than 35!), and the Lodi Animal Shelter has an equal amount, with more being brought in every day! Because of this, we’ve gone through the stock of both kitten chow, and canned wet food (pate) that we’d built up during the early part of this year.

YOU can help ensure that all of our kittens have the full bellies they need to grow up big and healthy by  going to your local store and purchasing any size bag of Purina Kitten Chow or Friskies canned wet food (pate, please), and bring it  down to PALS. Your donation is tax deductible, and you will be provided with a donation receipt.

 PALS, and all of our kittens, thank you for your continued support!

 PALS Haven – A New Hope For Lodi’s Abandoned Animals

 Since 2004, PALS has worked tirelessly to help as many abandoned cats and dogs in Lodi as possible have a safe place to stay,  rehabilitate, and find their forever homes. It has been a challenging endeavor, but one that we relish. We are now faced with our  greatest challenge to date. Working out of cramped quarters, our efforts to save the lives of cats and dogs is hampered. But, there is  hope on the horizon. To read more about the history of PALS, and how you can help PALS save the lives of even more cats and dogs  with PALS Haven, please click here.
