South Los Angeles Canine Walk-A-Thon™

An annual event held in the South Los Angeles area to promote responsible pet ownership.

PIA and our partners provide needed animal related services that many in the community need, but are economically unable to afford. Services including, but not limited to the following:

Education

PIA Series: Seminars/Lectures™

PIA lectures and gives educational seminars for students of all ages. One said program is the 5 week training program for the children at the Salesian Boys and Girls club in Boyle Heights. PIA developed a 5 week EDUCATIONAL PROGRAM where dogs are used as mediums to teach children how to have healthy relationships with animals and people. This aids us in our goal of teaching them to be compassionate towards their peers in our efforts to combat bullying.   

Training

Me & My Dog 5 Wk Obedience Series™

We offer scholarships for our obedience training programs to qualified and dedicated individuals (some equipment included). Weekly classes are a great way to keep pets socialized in an environment containing both animals and people, but still in a controlled setting. The ultimate goal of our 5 week training programs is to teach our students how to better understand their pets. Students are taught how to place the proper control in their pets to prevent any unseen situations.

These classes are to make sure people are at the least exposed to a basic level of training in order to control their pets. It has been our experience that a large percentage of pet owners have a limited knowledge base in what it takes to be a responsible pet owner. It has also been our experience that many pet owners in economically deprived areas though they love their pets have very limited resources to maintain them. So our program aids them in being able to get even a basic level of training which will cut down on the number of pet fights, bites, and LITIGATION brought against this socioeconomic group.
