The Nor Cal Pet Rescue Program currently accepts owner surrenders ONLY (we do not take in strays due to the laws in California). However, Nor Cal Pet makes sure each rescue cat or kitten, dog or puppy that we take in to our rescue center gets spayed or neutered(with assistance from various local programs), current vaccinations, treated for worms, fleas and other possible parasites, as well as provided a proper diet and plenty of exercise.

Volunteer opportunities are available. Duties may include walking and bathing dogs, feeding dogs/cats and cleaning kennels when its needed. The most important job of our volunteers is the socialization you can give to these animals while they wait for their forever homes! For more information, call 707-839-9201.

We encourage everyone to spay or neuter their cats and dogs both as a health benefit as well as to reduce the overpopulation in and around our community.

For more information on spay/neutering assistance contact us here at the store, email us, or follow one of the links below:


Max is doing great! He is finally available for adoption. He is a special case and we are going to be very picky where he goes. Max grew up on the streets of Hoopa Ca. When we took him in he was covered in hundreds of ticks severely underweight and had heart-worm. He has under gone heart worm treatment and will need to stay on heart worm preventive the rest of his life. He has a permanent disability in one of his front legs that does not slow him down. The ideal home for max would be someone who understands the breed. He is a complete sweet heart. He also is very protective of his home. No smaller kids and he seems to do fine with certain dogs. Please spread the word about this amazing dog.

Give us a call (707-839-9201) to set up a good time to meet MAX.

This is Jackson. He might be one of the most loyal, loving dogs we have had in our rescue to date. He came into our rescue at just about six months old with a tad bit of fear (he would pee every time anyone would say hi or pet him) and separation anxiety. During his time here, so far, Jackson has learned that being alone is ok and peeing is not necessary when greeting someone or when trying to get attention. He still has his moments. But don’t we all?

If you are serious about adopting Jackson, please come by and meet him but make sure you bring a couple of things: Patience, love, and comfortable shoes to go on a walk (must be active!).
