Monthly Community Events

community-events-logoEvery 4th Sunday of the month, we visit MacArthur Park to give some assistance to our community’s less fortunate and homeless and their pets.  Our events have grown every single month and now we help over 400 people during this monthly event.

 

REMEMBER: We help animals in need so dog and cat food, toys, bowls, leashes, collars and beds for both cats and dogs. Also, clothing as well.
