May 2015

a savory serving to satisfy your animal appetite

It's the 5th year of Maddie's Pet Adoption Days, and we're hoping to empty the place out! On May 30-31, all animals will go home fee-free to qualified adopters. If you've been looking for a new companion, now is the time! Tell your friends and neighbors, and help us find a home every animal in our care. See locations and hours.

Immortalize your pet in one-of-a-kind fashion when you paint their portrait yourself! Join us Friday, June 19, from 6-9 pm for Paint Your Pet, a fun-raiser you and your friends will love. All supplies and instruction by a professional artist included in the $40 registration fee. BYOB... snacks will be provided. Classes fill up quickly, so sign up today!
Summer is coming, what do you have planned?We've put together six weeks of educational fun with adoptable animals! It all starts June 22 with Kitty Caretaker, a cat care camp for kids age 12-15. Critter Camp fills up quickly, so register your child today for a summer experience they'll never forget!
...and we'd like to shout a big THANK YOU for the HUGE difference you've made for the animals this month! Your participation in East Bay Gives on May 5 helped raise more than $10,000; thank you to everyone who pledged, shared, tweeted, and gave. Our May 15 gala, Tails at Twilight, also exceeded its goals (we're still tabulating the results), thanks to big support from sponsors, volunteers, auction contributors, and the animal-loving donors who attended! As we continue to increase our rescue and adoption numbers--we sent home around 35% more animals in the first quarter of this year than we did in 2014--the support of our community is what makes it all possible. On behalf of all the dogs and cats we serve...THANKS!

Tatum came to Valley Humane because there were too many puppies in her litter, and their guardian was unable to find homes for everyone. Fortunately, this royally-cute Lab mix knew exactly what to do to find herself a castle to curl up in! Read more...
