Animal Samaritans is a 501 c 3 non-profit organization established in 1978 to improve the lives of animals and people. As the Desert’s leader in quality & affordable veterinary care, we run a professional, state-of-the-art veterinary clinic at the Animal Campus in Thousand Palms. Animal Samaritans also provides free Pet Therapy to local seniors, hospital patients, and disabled children. Their bi-lingual humane education staff teaches school children throughout the Coachella Valley responsible pet ownership, animal cruelty awareness, and respect for all living creatures. At our no-kill animal shelter, Animal Samaritans commits to its shelter dogs and cats for life. What’s more, each month Animal Samaritans rescues over 100 at-risk dogs and cats from our local public shelters through its Adoption Alliance animal rescue program.
