When you adopt an animal from a non-profit shelter or rescue organization, you are promoting the best interests of all the animals of the same type and breed. Rescue pets almost always come with “everything done”–vaccinations and spay/neuter at a minimum, and many rescue groups include microchipping in the fee charged for rehoming. In this area, there are currently six groups that rescue and rehome animals. They are as follows.

Save the Glenn County Shelter Dogs (and Cats) is a group of people who have organized an effort to rescue as many of the dogs and cats from the Glenn County Animal Control process as possible.
