The Animal Pad is a volunteer only organization, we try to have at least ONE adoption event per month but often have more. Check back here for info on special news and events for our rescue! It’s also a good idea to follow our Facebook page since things often get announced there first!

TAPACT: Meeting of the Minds
February 28 @ 6:00 pm - 8:00 pm
We are thrilled to introduce TAPACT- Our activism wing of The Animal Pad (TAP).
TAPACT is dedicated to ending the suffering, abuse, and exploitation of dogs through information, education, and advocacy locally and globally.
The Animal Pad rescues dogs primarily from Mexico and through our journey, we have seen first hand the many issues that dogs face at the hands of humans.
We are determined to evoke permanent change in both policy and culturally. We have a battle ahead of us but we know that, working together as one voice, we can make a significant difference for these souls on both sides of the Border.
Together, we can be heard, together, we can make change, together we cant be stopped.
—This will be the inaugural meeting of TAPACT and we encourage everyone to attend that would like to be part of this movement!
—Our first topic of conversation will be regarding the puppy selling that happens at the Border. We’ve all seen it- the guys who walk up and down the aisles of cars waiting to cross. They have teeny, tiny puppies who are too young to be away from their mothers and almost always sick. They pray on the sympathy of tourists to buy these puppies— and tourists usually do. This creates an issue on both sides of the Border and enables needless suffering that we want to put an end to. We want to have a major brainstorming session with whoever wants to put an end to this decades- long problem. So come join us and use your voice to make a difference!
—Location of the meeting will be at The San Diego Grooming Academy: 3805 Utah St, San Diego, CA 92104. Parking is street parking- there is a parking structure about a block up on University Ave and 29th named North Park Garage. The address for the parking structure is 3829 29th and its $5 for the night. RSVP on our Facebook invite HERE or by emailing: TAPACT@theanimalpad.com
