Drive-in film festival supports Palm Springs Animal Shelter

Residents are encouraged to support the Palm Springs Animal Shelter, the Coachella Valley’s only public, open admission shelter, operating under a no-kill philosophy at the inaugural Palm Springs Animal Shelter Film Festival on
Saturday, April 24.

The outdoor, socially distanced drive-in film festival, one of the shelter’s biggest  fundraisers of the year, will be held from 6:30 p.m. – 10 p.m. on the tarmac of the Palm Springs Air Museum, 754 N. Gene Autry Trail. To purchase tickets, click here. Face coverings are required.

The theme for this year’s event is “Love at the Drive-In,” a short pet-themed film festival you can enjoy from the comfort of your own vehicle. In addition, there will be a live auction from the drive-in stage as well as a virtual silent auction. A catered
vegan meal will be on hand and every ticket holder will receive a commemorative bucket with popcorn, candy, and limited edition shelter items.

“All proceeds will support important shelter programs that administer pet adoptions, low-cost vaccinations, spay and neuter clinics and extraordinary medical care for the shelter’s homeless pets,” Gabrielle Amster, the shelter’s executive director, said in a prepared statement.

“Help support the Coachella Valley’s only no-kill animal shelter and join us for the inaugural Palm Springs Animal Shelter Film Festival,” said Mayor Christy Holstege. “Your support allows the shelter to continue saving and improving the lives of
homeless pets with the hope of finding them a forever home.”
