Pets In Need was founded in 1965. It is Northern California’s first No Kill dog and cat rescue and adoptions shelter. “Our mission is to rescue dogs and cats who are in danger of being killed in public facilities and find them new, loving homes,” said Lisa Simmons Executive Director.

Pets In Need is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization totally supported by donations from the community and does not receive any city, county, state, or federal funding.  The Humane work is made possible solely through the generosity of people who care.
