Our Mission

TVAR’s mission is to end the unnecessary euthanasia of homeless animals. TVAR cooperates with area shelters and rescue groups, primarily the East County Animal Shelter, to provide homeless animals with socialization, foster homes, medical care and an opportunity for a second chance.

Our History

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 sponsors.
