About Us

About Us

Shelter Pet Partners is a non-profit, no-kill animal rescue saving lives since 2003.  Since that time we have taken in thousands of cats and dogs and placed them in forever loving homes.

We realize that the word "shelter" in our name can be confusing,  as we are not an animal shelter.  We partner with the shelters, rescuing  "at risk" animals and bringing them in to our program.

​We are a foster & volunteer based organization with 1 adoption center located in the San Diego area.  This center houses cats & kittens only. Our dogs are being fostered in various homes and require pre-approved applications before an appointment is set to meet them.

If after rescuing them, we find that they are not adoptable, we keep them in our care, for as stated above, we are a no-kill rescue.
