Our mission: To rescue dogs and cats and find them new, loving homes

Pets In Need was established in 1965 with one goal: to save the lives of animals in need. We are Northern California’s first “No-Kill” animal shelter, which means that we place into loving homes all dogs and cats that come through our doors.

Lucky Black Cat Month!

We’ve decided to extend our Lucky Black Cat Week to the rest of the month! All our black cats and kittens will have their adoption fees waived. We’re open from 12:00pm to 6:00 pm Monday through Sunday. Come see us and our black beauties!

We’re always looking for new additions to our volunteer team
