Community Involvement

As valued family members, and the joy they give unconditionally, pets are a part of Pasadena and area communities. At Lake Shore Pet Hospital, we treat them as such by staying involved in our community and helping give all pets the care they deserve. For this reason and more, we formed Friends of Lake Shore Pet Charitable Trust and donate our time regularly to local rescue groups.

CPR & First Aid Course

Our first-ever CPR & First Aid Course went off without a hitch!

Thank you SO much to everyone who came out in June 2022 and spent an hour of their precious time learning how to respond in case of a medical emergency with their pet.  The proceeds of the class went to a great cause and we raised $125 for our charity to help pets get the medical care they need when hard times fall on their owners.

Make a Tax Deductible Donation Today!

Most of all, helping pet owners afford the care they would otherwise be unable to provide strengthens the animal-human bond. Do your part to also help strengthen this special bond by making a donation to Friends of Lake Shore Pet Charitable Trust. Through a partnership with the American Veterinary Medical Foundation (AVMF), we treat and cure more pets in our community. Some of the people we provide assistance for include veterans, victims of domestic abuse, and senior citizens. Additionally, we contribute part of our proceeds at Lake Shore Pet Hospital to AVMF. Make your donation today to help Pasadena and area pets!


Providing Needed Care for Rescue Groups

Animal overpopulation is a real problem in that there are more healthy, adoptable pets available than there are people adopting them. Rescue groups use the resources available to them to save these pets and give them a second chance. Since rescue organizations work as non-profits and often depend on the generosity of donors, they can struggle to provide pets in their care with veterinary treatment. Because we care deeply for pets and our community, we regularly donate treatment to local rescue groups. Some of the organizations we work with include Baltimore Animal Rescue and Care ShelterMid-Atlantic German Shepherd Rescue, and more. Contact us to learn more about how you can help our pet community too.

Combating the Spread of Intestinal Parasites

Lake Shore Pet Hospital and Friends of Down’s Park have partnered up to sponsor Pet Pickup Stations throughout the park. Many intestinal parasites are spread through an infected pet’s fecal matter, which can then be nibbled by another curious pet. With more disposal stations throughout the park, we hope to reduce, and one day eliminates, the spread of intestinal parasites in the park.
