For 25 years, Valley Oak SPCA along with our team of volunteers, donors, and corporate sponsors, rescue as many homeless pets as possible. This mission is especially critical in our community – an area with some of the highest pet over population and pet euthanasia rates in the country. Our community mission is a necessity.
Much has changed for Valley Oak SPCA since our Animal Control Contract with the City of Visalia ended in April 2016. Our separation from the City allowed VOSPCA to change our focus and our future! We are now a No – Kill Animal Rescue Shelter. We no longer focus on animal control duties.
We rescue perfectly healthy animals from overcrowded government shelters in our community who may be scheduled for euthanasia due to overcrowding as well as animals others may think are not “rescue” material. We give them a chance to live and make a difference – like General Grant, for example. This VOSPCA alumni now has the important role of Mascot for Welcome Home Military Heroes where he helps to welcome home our men and women from deployment.
In addition to animal rescue, we believe in fixing the root of pet over-population and disease epidemics by offering low cost spay, neuter, vaccination, microchipping and other vet services to care for the animals in our community.
Unlike government-funded shelters, Valley Oak SPCA relies solely on donations for its 7 days a week animal care. Our incredibly small, productive team of animal care specialists work tirelessly to care for the animals in our rescue by treating sick animals, transporting animals to adoption venues, rescuing animals from local shelters, and taking in owner surrenders.
Our monthly Adoption Center costs often exceed our average monthly revenues. The difference comes from supports in the community. Every penny of our supporter’s monthly donations goes directly to the Valley Oak SPCA mission. Recurring donation of any amount is greatly appreciated.
The next step in our future is to move our facility (currently, the grey modular trailers south of the City of Visalia Animal Care Center) to land we purchased in May 2016. The parcel is located southwest of Goshen Ave. and Plaza Drive, just down the street from our Low Cost Clinic. Our land lease with the City of Visalia ends June 30, 2017, so there is change in our future very soon.
Thank YOU for being a part of our community’s life saving mission. Without you, we are unable to rescue and care for the animals in need in our community. Please join our mission by contributing to our new building fund or daily operational costs.

DONATE: We are a donor-based non profit, so we depend on the generosity of donors for day to day operations and our new building fund. http://vospca.org/participate/donate/general-donation-form/ Thanks to the generosity of our donors, we have purchased our new building land, but we are about $100,000 away from breaking ground on the adoption center portion of the building and $1 million away from completing it. Thankfully, the Charles E. Hoey Adoption Center and Whitendale Education Center portions of the new building have been named, but there are still naming rights available for the full complex and the boarding facility for corporate donors / major private donors.
