Our annual holiday fundraiser is Pet Friends’ 30-foot Tree of Lights (at our center overlooking the San Benito River).

It can be seen from the Highway 156 Bypass. Lighting a light is a unique way to honor a loved one this holiday while symbolizing a ray of hope—a light shining in the darkness for the homeless pets we help.

For a donation, a light will be lit on the tree. Lights can be purchased in memory of a beloved pet who shared their life with you; in honor of a current loved one (4-legged or 2-legged); or as a unique gift for an animal lover.


Please help us to light up the night with hope for the homeless pets we help. Click here to download form.

PET FRIENDS is a non-profit 501(c)(3) organization that benefits homeless companion animals of San Benito County. 

Our Mission is to eliminate cruelty and neglect of abandoned companion animals and to encourage a community atmosphere of education, care, and concern that will strengthen the human/animal bond. 

To accomplish this mission, PET FRIENDS has established: The Pet Friends Low Cost Spay and Neuter Clinic to lower the cost of spay and neuter operations and, therefore, help reduce pet overpopulation, homelessness, and suffering Assist in controlling and maintaining the county feral cat population by offering specially priced spay and neuter services at our clinic for ferals.

Retrieval, fostering, and adoption of healthy companion animals into caring and loving homes Pet Friends’ animal intake protocol is to rescue adoptable companion animals from Hollister Animal Control only and provide them with a permanent shelter environment while awaiting their new home.
