Our History

PALNV was formed in October 1993 by a small group of people who were concerned about the well being of unwanted animals. On February 4, 1994 the State of California and the Federal Government granted PALNV their non-profit status. From our inception until the spring of 2011, PALNV took in over 15,000 unwanted or abandoned animals, had them spayed or neutered, vaccinated, microchipped, and adopted.


When Robert Lowry, a local resident of Wrightwood, CA passed away, he left his estate to 3 charities and PAL was named as one of the recipients. We were thrilled that Mr. Lowry felt us worthy of sharing his legacy. Part of the donation PALNV received was a house in Wrightwood. In September of 2011, PALNV relocated their office to the house and continue to operate their California programs from there. Since PALNV no longer has a shelter in which to house animals, their focus is on helping people care for their animals by offering spay/neuter vouchers to defray veterinary costs, feeding the pets of low income senior citizens, military veterans, pet families and the homeless, and helping with veterinary costs (when funds are available) for their pets. 


On April 4, 2014, the State of Nevada granted PALNV their Foreign Qualification status to transact business in the state. PALNV moved the non-profit to Las Vegas in May 2014 and is now operating their Pets-In-Need Program, Education Program and Pet Food Bank to help keep pets in their homes. PALNV is also  partnering with local businesses and rescue groups to fullfill their mission.
