The ElleVet Project brought its veterinary rescue tour back to Southern California on Thursday, providing veterinary care and supplies to pets of the homeless and street animals. The nonprofit effort aims to reach thousands of animals this year.

Founded during the pandemic, the project hosts a rotating team of veterinarians to provide treatment to animals and partners with community-focused sponsors who donate medical and other supplies.

The team spent the day providing care at the Union Rescue Mission in Los Angeles on Thursday, its third year at the center.

“By expanding this year’s relief efforts to new cities, including Seattle, Portland, Boston and New York, we’ll be able to reach more people and their beloved pets,” said co-founder and COO Amanda Howland. “Our efforts over the past few years have taught us firsthand how helping a pet can change its owner’s life for the better, both emotionally and physically.”

The team sees more dogs than any other animal, Howland said Thursday – but they’ve treated many varieties of pets. “We saw rats, donkeys, chickens, reptiles – we saw bearded dragons,” she said. “We never say no, we see any species, any pet.”

Here’s the schedule for the rest of the project’s swing in Southern California for the rest of the month.

  • July 8, Los Angeles – Skid Row – Union Rescue Mission (545 S. San Pedro St.), 9am-2pm
  • July 11-12, 14-15, Pasadena – Pasadena Humane Society (361 S. Raymond Ave.), 9am-2pm
  • July 18, San Diego – San Diego Day Center (299 17th St.), 9 a.m.-2 p.m.
  • July 19, Placentia – Placentia Navigation Center (731 S. Melrose St.), 9 a.m. to 2 p.m.
  • July 20, Santa Ana – Yale Navigation Center (2229 S Yale St.), 9 a.m.-2 p.m.
  • July 21-22, Venice Beach – Venice Beach (Sunset & Hampton Drive near Gold’s Gym), 9am-2pm

“As the number of homeless people has increased, we have also seen an increase in the number of their pets in the Skid Row area,” said Lisa Cox, Union Rescue Mission program director. “There is definitely an increased need as the numbers go up.”

The project was established in April 2021 as the 501(c)(3) charitable arm of ElleVet Sciences, which markets itself as the “only CBD + CBDA for pets on the market proven to be effective in clinical studies”.

Her supporters include Demi Moore, Jane Lynch, Sarah Paulson, Rumer Willis, Judy Greer and Rich Eisen.
