About Us


The mission of Loving All Animals is to bring together local, regional, and national animal welfare organizations to maximize the programs intended to stop the killing of animals.


Loving All Animals was incorporated at the end of 2008 to fill a void in the animal welfare community within the Coachella Valley. The agency sought to be the conduit for the welfare of the valley’s animals. Lindi Biggi, founder of Loving All Animals, believed that if all of the shelters and rescue organizations could work cooperatively, the animals would be the ultimate beneficiary. 

In 2018, the Pet Rescue Center, a 501(c)3 charity, based in Coachella, CA, was gifted to Loving All Animals. The Pet Rescue Center had been founded and continuously managed by Christine Madruga for 21 years. In 2018, the Pet Rescue Center’s Board elected to transfer the entire charity to Loving All Animals, and Christine retired.

Loving All Animals provides animal sheltering, adoption, training, support, humane education programs to our community.

What We Do

Our Core Services Include

Whiskers & Purrs

Whiskers and Purrs specializes in the welfare of kittens and cats.

Trap, Neuter & Return (TRN)

Community (feral) cats are necessary ecologically, but they can multiply and become a nuisance if not fixed. In cooperation with veterinarians and local rescue groups, Loving All Animals participates in reduced rate or free spay/neuter clinics. Through this program, the cats are trapped, fixed and released back to their community to continue to continue to humanely live out their lives.

Fostering Network (Seniors of all ages offering Shelter)

Fostering an adoptable pet for Loving All Animals offers the fun of having a pet without the responsibility of ownership. Each fosterer receives pet food, a bed, leash and harness. They are invited to be a part of her adoption, training and humane educational events. Our fosterers tell us it is among the most rewarding things they do.

Networking and Social Media

Through our network and social media, we receive and send details of animals that are available for adoption which include photos and descriptions. Around the world, animals have found loving homes through networking with other animal lovers and agencies. Our network allows you to be a part of the solution to homeless pets. You will also receive notice of fun activities and valuable animal related information.


Our annual fundraising events provide awareness and education to the public regarding the needs of our community’s animals. Some of our events include golf tournaments, dinners and fun activities throughout the year.

Educational Events

Loving All Animals makes every effort to participate in the many events offered by other nonprofit organizations in our beautiful desert. We often bring adoptable animals to these events to educate the public on shelter rescue, adoption possibilities, humane care and treatment of animals, and emergency preparedness for pets.
