Who We Are

La Jolla Loves Pets Foundation is a non-profit 501(c)3 organization that dedicates all its resources to supporting animals and local animal-related charities. We believe that bringing our pet-loving community together allows us to make a positive impact while having a great time with our four-legged family members.

Our Mission

Our mission is to raise funds by organizing events for pets and their owners in the community. We use all proceeds to make grants to animal rescues and local pet charities.

Our Vision

La Jolla is such a pet-friendly town! So many people take their dogs with them when going to eat, running errands, or just out to play and socialize. People love their pets and treat them like family.

We have dedicated our organization to holding 3 fundraising events each year: La Jolla Mutt Strut in the Spring, La Jolla Dog-O-Ween in the Fall, and La Jolla Santa Paws in the Winter. We also walk in La Jolla Christmas Parade – all dog lovers are welcome to join us in Ugly Christmas Sweaters!

Each event will bring all pet lovers together. We will all get together and celebrate our dogs. We’ll play games and win prizes. We’ll make new two-legged and four-legged friends each time we get together. We’ll have lots of fun, but most importantly, we’ll be supporting our community together.

All proceeds will be donated to local animal rescue organizations and local pet charities. We want to support these selfless hard-working people who dedicate their lives to the welfare of animals. We will always have these organizations bring as many pets available for adoption as possible.

We want to impact these organizations as a community, bringing all pet lovers together. We have one common denominator among us: we love pets. Together we can impact so many.
