THREE reasons to #GIVE2VAC this GivingTuesday!

1. Your donation can help us rescue more at-risk dogs and cats

At Valley Animal Center, we rescue dogs and cats from local animal control agencies. While we try to pull animals and welcome them into our shelter weekly, we are often faced with having limited staff and resources. Help us save more lives and donate today.

2. Your donation can help us provide medical care to ill or injured dogs and cats

Very often, especially during kitten season, we are overwhelmed with ill or injured animals. Many kittens, for example, are surrendered to us with upper respiratory infections, which can take weeks to resolve. Sometimes, complications arise and additional treatment or surgery is necessary. Help us help animals in need and donate today.

3. Your donation can help us continue to serve the Central Valley community

In addition to a low-cost clinic and membership-based dog park and cat club, we now offer affordable dog training. Our adoption supervisor receives hundreds of owner surrender request forms weekly. If an individual is faced with the option to surrender their dog due to behavior issues, we can offer dog training at an affordable price. Help us keep families healthy, happy and together and donate today.
