Tri-Valley Animal Rescue – http://www.tvar.org
Tri-Valley Animal Rescue works with East County Animal Shelter. They help care for and place shelter animals; offers foster homes low-cost spay-neutering and community services. They need people to provide foster care of dogs, cats, rabbits and other animals; transportation of animals; staff regular and special adoption events; do clerical work; and walking and grooming animals. The minimum age for volunteers is 15
TVAR’s mission is to end the unnecessary euthanasia of homeless animals. TVAR cooperates with area shelters and rescue groups, primarily the East County Animal Shelter, to provide homeless animals with socialization, foster homes, medical care and an opportunity for a second chance.
Tri-Valley Animal Rescue, Inc. was founded in 1992 and is run solely by volunteers dedicated to placing homeless animals.
Through the commitment of our volunteers, TVAR works to ensure services such as:
Fostering at-risk adoptable and/or treatable animals
Providing our foster animals with routine and special-needs medical care
Public education about spay/neuter and responsible pet ownership
Adoption events to match our animals with suitable new owners
They also provide volunteers to the East County Animal Shelter in Dublin. These volunteers socialize the animals and interface with the public to facilitate adoptions. Their shelter program includes a teen/junior component, allowing young people in our community the opportunity to help animals in need and learn about responsible pet ownership.
