Other miscellaneous explanatory notes:

In 2020, PETA helped more than 26,000 animals from more than 260 cities, and spent more than $2,500,000 on companion-animal services locally. PETA operates the only private animal shelter in our area (perhaps the entire state) with people on call 24/7/365 for after-hour emergencies and to welcome all animals, regardless of adoptability, without appointments, waiting lists, admission fees, or restricted hours. PETA's shelter is also one of the few that still provide end-of-life services for guardians (nearly 500 of them in 2020) desperate to alleviate their animals' suffering. Many were referred to PETA by other animal shelters and veterinary clinics.

PETA's free/low-cost mobile clinics sterilized 12,565 animals, including 1,123 pit bulls and 481 feral cats. We transported more than 800 dogs and cats to and from the clinics free of charge to provide free services. PETA assisted more than 3,000 families in keeping animals by providing medical services, including repairing hernias, performing surgeries on dogs suffering from life-threatening uterine infections, removing tumors, performing drainage surgery for hematomas and infected wounds, treating various infections, and by showing them how to cope with behavioral quirks, grooming challenges, and more. We distributed more than 210 doghouses and over 1,900 bales of straw bedding free to “outdoor” dogs.
