PetEmber is a California 501 (c)(3) charitable non-profit IRS tax-exempt animal rescue organization that was established in 2016 and obtained its IRS tax-exempt status in 2017. Since found, PetEmber managed to form productive partnerships with the PetSmart charities, Subaru of America, Adoptapet.com, and the Petfinder Foundation. PetEmber Operates in a foster-based manner driven by the mission of saving any animal that can be fostered in a normal household within the growing foster network of PetEmber. Since found, PetEmber helped rescue 2000+ animals in southern California especially the Inland Empire, Orange County, LA County, and the cities on the US-Mexico border from both sides.
The greatest asset of PetEmber is the rising number of dedicated individuals (Volunteers and fosters) working towards diminishing the number of animals euthanized annually in the high kill shelters of our community and the animals abandoned or relinquished by their owners in our community. PetEmber is committed to providing all animals that come into the rescue with the best care possible through extended periods of stay at the rescue to ensure that all the health work, training, and domestication were done properly on the animal prior to being adopted. All the animals rescued at PetEmber stay in their foster homes until they receive all the full boosters of vaccines, fecal testing, deworming medication, flea & tick control medication, heartworm prevention medication, bloodwork (If necessary), and mandatory spay/neuter surgeries. While awaiting their Furr-Ever home in the care of our fosters, PetEmber provides all the animals with appropriate training, nutrition, treats, toys, and exposure to diverse breeds of dogs, cats, children, and strangers in order to become well-rounded before being adopted.
PetEmber endorses Spay/neuter as one of the main approaches to deal with the high population of animals in shelters and on the streets of our community. Besides, PetEmber applies strict rules of selecting adopters to ensure that the animals being adopted will never be abandoned by their owners or dumped back to the streets of our community.
