Pets Are Loving Support
Providing Care For The Animal Companions Of People With AIDS In Sonoma County Pets Are Loving Support is a non-profit agency organized to improve the quality of life of people with AIDS by preserving and promoting the human/animal bond through the care and maintenance of their animal companions. As a voluntary service agency, we want to provide the best care possible for our clients and their pets. We recommend spay and neutering for all animals. We actively engage in outreach to educate the HIV community and alert potential clients of our services. We also serve as a source of information on zoonoses (diseases transmitted from animals to humans) and other educational concerns related to our clientelle. We provide referrals to individuals and clients for services we do not provide, and we work closely with other agencies who might serve our clients such as Face to Face, The Network, and the Sonoma County Humane Society, all of which are in in Sonoma County, California. Although PALS has a reputation in education and service to people with AIDS, there are still misconceptions and confusion about our mission. Simply, as put forth in our mission statement, PALS helps people with AIDS keep their companion animals for as long as possible. This list is meant to be a helpful guide to situations that might arise. If you have any questions about a proper course of action please telephone at (707) 887-2729.
