About Shelter Hope Pet Shop
We are a non-profit volunteer-based pet shop that showcases shelter animals available for in-store adoption. We find homes for the many shelter and rescue animals in need, and sales of merchandise in our pet shops goes directly back to help save more animals.
Shelter Hope Pet Shop is a volunteer-run nonprofit. We rely on the community for assistance, donations and volunteers.
Shelter Hope Pet Shop is a 501c non-profit, charitable, volunteer-based organization devoted to: aiding in and facilitating shelter and rescue pet adoptions; promoting education and awareness within the communities we serve; and making a positive impact in the lives of shelter and rescue animals and their adopters, as well as local shelters.
Shelter Hope Pet Shop is the premier source for adoptable dogs within the community. We help save the lives of hundreds of dogs each year. By doing so, we will also have a positive impact with helping to decrease the number of potential unhealthy puppy mill puppies purchased from for-profit and inhumane businesses.
Shelter Hope Pet Shop is part of the Shelter Hope Project, which strives to make this the business model for all pet shops nationwide. We hope to abolish all puppy mill pet shops, help find homes for the countless pets in our shelters that face euthanasia, and educate the public on how we can all help reduce future shelter population.

Kim has appeared on The Dr Phil Show and all the local news stations as an expert in animal rescue. Kim has has helped create a program to transport California Death row dogs to out of state shelters and rescues, monthly spay days for low income communities and most recently founded the Shelter Hope Pet Shop at the Janss Market Place. Kim notes, "By showing the public shelter animals at a mall behind a white picket fence we may be able to change the fate of the five million killed at America's shelters every year."
