NEW! Animal Behavior Hotline

Alongside Fresno State Associate Professor Dr. Steven W. Payne, Valley Animal Center and the Payne Animal Welfare Lab have launched the pilot of the Animal Behavior Hotline, a hotline dedicated to assisting Valley Animal Center adopters with any pet behavioral issues.

This FREE service is currently in its early stages and is only available to Valley Animal Center adopters. Once the pilot is complete, it will be made available to the public!

Stay tuned!

We are a no-kill rescue shelter, providing a holistic approach to animal care and companionship.

Valley Animal Center houses thousands of dogs and cats annually until they are placed in loving homes. We believe animals deserve to be protected, respected, and loved. 

We are not just an adoption center. 

Our mission to unite cats and dogs to loving homes does not end at the adoption process but continues afterwards. With our low-cost clinic, a membership-based dog park, and humane educational resources found on our website, we want to ensure that pet owners have easy access to resources that will help them along in their pet ownership journey to become happy and furever with their furry companions.

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.
