It's important that your pet receive yearly vaccinations to keep them safe. Visit our low-cost clinic to keep your pet healthy.


Providing a low-cost, high-quality resource for the community, we can make a difference. Book an appointment today.


As a volunteer, you will be making a difference for the animals as well as your community. Learn how to join our team.

Relinquish or Rehome

Often a pet is surrendered because an owner feels they have no choice. We may be able to help find alternatives to surrendering.

Adoptable Pets

When you open your home to a pet who needs help, they really do show their appreciation for the rest of their life! Adopt today!

Independence Day Extravaganza - In a Calm Way!

Thursday, 4th July 2024
Mary S. Roberts Pet Adoption Center - 6165 Industrial Avenue
Riverside, United States

Calling all Pet Enthusiasts!

Independence Day Extravaganza – in a Calm Way!

We've got a mission that's calling out to all animal whisperers! This has been PET APPROVED! How about you brace yourself to come and team up with us on July 4, 2024, from 8 to 10 pm? Yes, smack-dab in the middle of those booming fireworks that our furry buddies don't exactly adore. But hey, ever wanted to crash a dog or cat party? Ever wished to be the PAW-SON of the hour? Well, my friend, your moment of glory has come! 

Bring along your chairs or yoga mats or, heck, even a fluffy unicorn cushion, if that's what floats your boat! Because for two splendid hours, we're looking at you to create a comfort zone in front of our pet kennels. And oh, bring your soothing voice, we'll need a whole bunch of lullabies or the book you’re currently reading, or that one that you haven’t gotten around to yet! The pups and kitties can't wait to meet their knight or dame in shining armor!

So, how 'bout it? Are you ready to shush some shivers and be the pawfect friend? If you're nodding, click the link below and sign up for the most exclusive party of the year - pawty with the pets!

This event is for anyone aged 10 and up.  All children must be accompanied by an adult. 

Many thanks to NaturVet for providing calming aids for our pets on this day

What Our Community Says

    I adopted my two kittens from this facility, and the experience was a complete joy.
  • The cleanliness of the center and the caring personalities from all of the staff and volunteers places
    the whole environment seem warm and inviting. We are so thankful to everyone at MSRPAC
    for embracing our family and allowing us to adopt new additions.
  • We love this place everyone is so helpful. I love seeing the employees and volunteers
    all interact with the animals, taking them for walks, playing with them, giving them extra love, and making
    sure everyone who touched the animals have their hands clean. We adopted a 7 month cat and he is the happiest cat ever.
