In San Diego’s North County we’ve formed a pack—we are people who love dogs and cats. We believe that companion animals are among the noblest beings on earth and that they deserve our stewardship. We are an all-volunteer group with 501c3 tax exempt status. Want to get involved? Contact us today!
SPOT, Saving Pets One at a Time, is a leading San Diego County all-volunteer rescue organization dedicated to ending the killing of dogs and cats in shelters. Our goal is to save treatable, trainable, manageable and misdiagnosed dog and cats. We rescue them and provide foster homes in order to give them the care, medical, behavior and training, they need until we find them their forever loving homes. Our ultimate wish is for all shelters to be empty – meaning that no animal is abandoned, and no shelter kills one animal to make room for another. We promote and advocate for spay and neuter programs in addition to Trap, Neuter, Release (TNR) programs for feral cats. Please note: SPOT does not take in strays or owner-relinquished pets, but Click Here to download our handout with tips and information about how to re-home your pet.
Loving foster homes are the backbone of any rescue organization. They are families just like yours that provide a safe, temporary home for rescued pets to rest, recuperate and prepare to meet their forever families. The animals in foster care benefit greatly from love and attention and living in a home environment; for some rescued pets, it may be a first. When foster homes are not available, rescued pets stay in boarding kennels or veterinary clinics.
