Our Virtual Adoption Center
Our Adoptable Cats and Dogs
Who We ArePets Unlimited is a 24-hour Veterinary Center where a portion of every dollar you spend on the care of your pets helps support our charitable veterinary care programs and our Shelter and Adoption Center.
Our state-of-the-art Veterinary Center saves the lives of our clients' pets, while generating critical funding to ensure that the cats and dogs living in our shelter are placed in healthy and loving homes.
Pets Unlimited's Shelter and Adoption Center saves the lives of hundreds of injured and abused cats and dogs every year but we cannot do it alone. Our work is not possible without community support and generosity from clients and donors like you who care about saving the lives of pets in need.
A History of Unlimited CarePets Unlimited was born from the selfless acts of a trio of heroines in 1940’s San Francisco. When a scruffy, stray dog wandered into the yard of Mrs. Carter H. Downing, she did what any good citizen would do. She took the dog to the city pound. But she soon learned that the dog’s chances for survival were slim. Wayward pets were euthanized after only a few days unless adopted quickly.
Mrs. Downing decided to take the dog back home with her. Then she did more – she also took all the other dogs at the pound! Along with two other civic leaders, she quickly began her own impromptu adoption service, which proved amazingly successful at finding loving homes for animals in need.
65 Years of ServiceMore than 65 years later, this commitment to charity and caring has grown into Pets Unlimited, San Francisco’s premiere veterinary provider, where a portion of every dollar spent in our Veterinary Center supports extended shelter services, a foster family program, volunteer opportunities and community educational services, both on and off-site. Since inception, the organization has been instrumental in saving the lives of more than 250,000 animals.
