Today, we highlight an admirable partner: the Valley Humane Society! Since 1987, this rescue has focused on companion animals in Northern California, and runs a variety of programs to improve the lives of these wonderful pets.
Through rescuing and rehabilitating companion animals, to championing responsible care-taking, the Valley Humane Society works to create a brighter future for pets and humans alike through a variety of programs.
We’re excited to feature a few ways you can get involved with Valley Humane Society, plus several of their pets that are currently up for adoption! Make to sure to share these sweet animals with your friends, and help us support VHS’s efforts!
Valley Humane Society
Ways to Get Involved
Valley Humane Society relies on help of all kinds: donations, time, and whatever else you may be able to offer! Here are a few of the ways you can get involved with them.
- Send a kid to Critter Camp: VHS offers many educational programs for kids and teens, with Critter Camp being one of their most popular! This humane day camp teaches kids ages 10-12 how to care for animals at a vital age. Register your child for Animal Allies week, from July 10-14.
- Support Canine Comfort Pet Therapy: VHS volunteers team up with their companion animals to visit those in schools, medical facilities, and retirement homes, to provide people in need with the comfort animals bring. Bring your dog along, or help with fundraising events, children’s camps, and humane education programs! (Learn more.)
- Donate food or items to AniMeals: Donations of all pet food are welcome at VHS’s pet food bank, as are pet-related items such as litter, treats, and toys. This program helps provides regular free meals and supplies to the dogs and cats of seniors and low-income families. (Learn more.)
- Enjoy some drinks with friends, and save some lives: VHS’s Yappy Hour Series will be taking place all summer. Four local venues will compete to see who can raise the most money to help homeless dogs and cats, and all you have to do is buy as many dishes and drinks as you can! View the full schedule here.
This Week’s Adoptable Dog
Mac was transferred from Stockton Animal Services. He had been found as a stray and weighs 56.20 lbs.
Mac is available to go home in a foster-to-adopt scenario. Mac is ready to meet his new forever family and enjoy time in a home instead of a kennel. VHS will continue to be responsible for his medical needs until he recovers from demodex in approximately two months. Come meet Mac today and talk with VHS staff to see if this option works for you
Learn more about Mac and arrange to meet him here.
