Accessibility Statement

We are committed to providing a website that is accessible to the widest possible audience. To do so, we are actively working with consultants to update the website by increasing its accessibility and usability by persons who use assistive technologies such as automated tools, keyboard-only navigation, and screen readers.

We are working to have the website conform to the relevant standards of the Section 508 Web Accessibility Standards developed by the United States Access Board, as well as the World Wide Web Consortium's (W3C) Web Content Accessibility Guidelines 2.1. These standards and guidelines explain how to make web content more accessible for people with disabilities. We believe that conformance with these standards and guidelines will help make the website more user friendly for all people.

Our efforts are ongoing. While we strive to have the website adhere to these guidelines and standards, it is not always possible to do so in all areas of the website. If, at any time, you have specific questions or concerns about the accessibility of any particular webpage, please contact so that we may be of assistance.

Thank you. We hope you enjoy using our website.

Mischelle’s Breast Cancer Story

May 28, 2019

When Mischelle Avalos was diagnosed with stage 3 breast cancer, she didn't think 'Why me?' Instead, she thought: "I'm in for the ride of my life." Avalos received care at the Comprehensive Cancer Center in Palm Springs. She was able to continue her work at the Animal Shelter during her treatments and is now back to working full-time with the animals she loves. "At the end of the day, you have to be passionate about something," she said.
