This is Mrs. Diaz and her 5 year old dog Milo. Mrs. Diaz received Milo when he was just a puppy as a gift from her grandson. Mrs. Diaz who immediately fell in love with Milo, made him a special member of her family. Mrs. Diaz who resides in the Pets For Life focus area, joined Pets for Life a year ago after receiving a flyer at her home. Mrs. Diaz was able to have Milo neutered and vaccinated through Pets For Life and has even been able to receive medical treatment for her almost 17 year old cat Pelusa!

Milo who Initially tested positive for Heartworms in November of 2018, was all smiles on his latest visit on December 4th to PAAC because he tested Heartworm Negative! Mrs. Diaz was ecstatic because she has been consistently obtaining Milo’s monthly Heartworm prevention through PAAC and it has paid off! Mrs. Diaz stated that the Pets for Life program is excellent for people with limited access to resources. Mrs. Diaz has been appreciative of the Pets for Life program since joining because as someone who is on a fixed income, the free services obtained through Pets for Life have helped her tremendously. Mrs. Diaz stated she encourages people in the community to have their pets spayed/neutered to avoid overpopulation. Mrs. Diaz feels it is our duty to help community animals in need because all animals deserve nothing but love.

November 2019 Story:

PLEMeet Roxy, 11 month old blue heeler and her owner Mr. Reyna. We met Roxy and Mr. Reyna during door-to-door community outreach in the focus area in early October. Mr. Reyna informed us that Roxy was a gift given by one of his daughters.Mr. Reyna shared his immense love for Blue Heelers with us.Mr. Reyna stated when his daughter informed him he would be getting a puppy, he insisted that the puppy be the runt of the litter. Mr. Reyna shared that he has always felt that the runts of the litter require more love and care which leads to them becoming amazingly strong dogs.

Mr. Reyna was enthusiastic to find out about the free services the Pets for Life program at PAAC had to offer and thanks to the Pets For Life Program, Mr. Reyna was able to have Roxy transported to and from his home just a few days after initially meeting with us. On the day of Roxy’s appointment Roxy was spayed, vaccinated, microchipped, received a flea/tick treatment and even got to go home with a toy!

Upon visiting Mr. Reyna as a follow up, Roxy appeared to be as playful as ever and Mr. Reyna expressed his gratitude to the program. Mr. Reyna stated he was very thankful and even recommended the program to his neighbors in the focus area. Thanks to the Pets for Life program, pets like Roxy can continue to receive vital medical services which may have not been possible otherwise.

Donate today to this program so we can continue helping families like Mr. Reyna and his dog Roxy.
