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
We also provide volunteers to the East County Animal Shelter in Dublin. These volunteers socialize the animals and interface with the public to facilitate adoptions. Our 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.
We are funded by contributions and donations from our community of supporters and Maddie's Fund.
On February 1, 2014, TVAR entered a partnership with Maddie's Fund. Maddie's Fund shares TVAR's complete dedication to animal welfare and our joint goal is to build and expand upon TVAR's amazing efforts and successes to increase the number of animals finding their forever homes and empty our local shelters. We are excited and honored to be working with such a strong and dedicated organization.
As part of the partnership, all of TVAR's fostering and shelter volunteer efforts have joined Maddie's Fund. TVAR, as a non-profit animal rescue organization, has refocused its efforts on saving and changing the lives of dogs and cats through other animal saving activities - we will announce more on TVAR's continued lifesaving efforts as the year unfolds.
Maddie's Fund has funded animal rescue and veterinary school shelter medicine training and research programs through grants across the nation for over 15 years and is opening their first-ever shelter in 2015. Maddie's Fund is working with TVAR volunteers, Officers, and Board members to build on TVAR's expertise in rescue, fostering, and adoption over the next year with Maddie's Fund funding all costs. We truly believe this joint effort will increase the number of cats and dogs saved.
