a savory serving to satisfy your animal appetite

If you're looking to add a four-legged friend to your home, this Saturday, August 15 is the day to do so! NBC Bay Area and Telemundo 48 are sponsoring their annual Clear the Shelters event. All adoptable animals at Valley Humane Society will go home with qualified adopters for no fee! Help us clear VHS by stopping in this Saturday from 10 am to 4 pm and falling in love with one our awesome dogs and cats.

Ready for a day packed with family fun? Paws in the Park is a little over a month away, and our tails are wagging with excitement! There's so much to look forward to: awesome doggie demos, a diverse selection of pet-related vendors, great music, tasty food trucks. We're planning to pack the park, so come early to see (and join) all the dogs lined up for the charity walk. Families and four-legged friends welcome! Save the date: Paws in the Park is Sunday, September 27 from 10 am - 3 pm at Amador Valley Community Park in Pleasanton.

For animal-lovers too young to meet our minimum volunteer age, Valley Humane Society's Education team put together Junior Volunteers, a program for students age 12-15. Applications are now being accepted for two upcoming Fall sessions, starting in September and October. The four-week sessions run Fridays from 3:45-5 pm. Junior Volunteers receive hands on training and make a rewarding difference in the lives of homeless animals. Click here to apply.
