Starting at 9 a.m. on August 8, Hill's Pet Nutrition will provide a $5,000 bonus grant to the two shelters who receive the most individual donations during the week of August 8-14. The goal during this week is to get the MOST transactions during this time. Every donation counts toward the bonus, no matter the size! Donate to the Clear the Shelters Fund today!

This year, #ClearTheShelters will be RAWR-SOME!

Clear the Shelters, spearheaded by NBC Universal Local, is a month-long movement to encourage so many adoptions that we clear our shelters, and at Valley Animal Center, we have created the ultimate adoption experience this August!

Inspired by the Pet Alliance of Greater Orlando and their Pawgwarts adoption campaign, our dogs and cats have been assessed by our animal care staff, and based on their personalities and behaviors, we have sorted them into four different dinosaurs.

Click on each dinosaur below to learn more about them!

The theme is inspired by the 1993 science fiction film, Jurassic Park, and its subsequent installments. By showcasing our dogs and cats in a fun way, we hope to provide potential adopters the opportunity to be imaginative in their adoption journey.

We encourage you to be fearless and adopt today!

Tricera-STOP!

Take our DinoMatch quiz right now to find out which dinosaur is the best match for you!

Our DinoMatch quiz is not 100% accurate. We recommend that you still seek the advice from one of our knowledgeable animal care staff members. Every adoption is dependent on application approval. Adoption fees are always subject to change.

Feel free to dress up as your favorite dinosaur or Jurassic Park character.

Welcome to Purrassic Bark, a Clear the Shelters and Super Adoption 2022 adoption adventure!

Every year, Valley Animal Center joins forces with various local shelters and rescues to host the largest adoption event in the Central Valley. Thanks to huge advancements in scientific technology this year, we created an island full of prehistoric dogs and cats. We're maximizing our efforts and making Super Adoption the culmination event of our Clear the Shelters adoption campaign.

Purrasic Bark opens its gates August 27th from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m.

A team of dedicated scientists and park rangers have populated Valley Animal Center with dogs and cats in order to attract visitors from all over the Central Valley. Visit Purrasic Bark and meet hundreds of animals waiting to be discovered! Explore the impact you can have as a human being on earth and save the date!

Purrasic Bark is a special, one-stop-adopt event you don't want to miss. Bring your friends and family!

Sponsor Purrassic Bark!

If you or someone you know would be interested in sponsoring this event, please contact our marketing manager, Alisia Sanchez, at alisia@valleyanimal.org.
