a savory serving to satisfy your animal appetite

Treat yourself to a lifetime of affection when you fall in love during Adults Only, a cat adoption affaire running February 14-28. Adult cats get passed up in favor of kitten cuteness, yet they have just as much (if not more!) to offer. What are you looking for in your next feline companion? Find it in an adult cat! Standard adoption criteria apply; adoption fees are just $14 for cats 9 months and older. Who will you take home?

If you have a lot of room in your heart (and just a little in your home), Valley Humane Society needs you as a cat or dog foster! Learn how you can provide the extra TLC, special attention, or just a quiet place to recover that can prepare a homeless animal for adoption and help us increase the number of animal we can rescue. Sign up today for one of our upcoming foster orientations!
Who'll let the dogs out? (Or feed the cats?) We are actively seeking adult volunteers to assist with dog and cat care on weekday mornings or on the weekends. We have a fantastic new volunteer program manager in the person of Shoshannah Reed, who has managed VHS humane education programs for many years. Sign up to attend our next volunteer orientation in March, and join the team!

When Olate Dogs passed through town on their Holiday Rescue Tour, the award-winning troupe nominated Valley Humane Society for a donation of Halo pet food. As a result, we are the grateful recipients of 5,000 meals of Halo pet food to help feed our adult cats. Many thanks to FreeKibble.com, GreaterGood.org, and Halo, Purely for Pets for this generous gift, and to Olate Dogs for helping rescued pets! 

HappilyHomeHappily Home: Puffin

Puffin wasn't playing games when she sauntered up to our new Operations Coordinator to make friends. The two-year-old tuxedo monopolized his heart and quickly became his first rescue cat, joining a much-loved menagerie at the heart of a happy household. Read more...
