Dog Park

We are a no-kill rescue shelter.

Valley Animal Center is dedicated to controlling the pet population through education and spaying/neutering, not euthanasia. We believe animals deserve to be protected, respected, and given every consideration morally and ethically. Our mission is to assist with and provide for the health and welfare of the animals that have been abused, mistreated, abandoned, and injured, to promote the bond between animals and people, and to instill an appreciation and respect for all living creatures with whom we share this earth.

MORE THAN A SHELTER

ADOPT

Valley Animal Center’s dog and cat adoption centers house approximately 400 animals combined.

The animals in our care are rescued from local animal control agencies before they are euthanized. We proudly give these animals the second chance they deserve.

When we have the funds and space, some animals are taken in as owner surrenders.

Valley Animal Center is a no-kill shelter; therefore, we do not euthanize any of our animals for space.
