About Us

WOOF Animal Rescue is a 100% volunteer-based non-profit organization dedicated to rescuing animals in Northern California. With the help of our volunteers, WOOF has rescued numerous dogs from high-kill shelters, trained them as necessary and found wonderful forever homes for them.

We believe in…

  • Saving animal’s lives
  • Adoption of animals rather than purchasing from those breeding for profit and/or irresponsibly
  • Responsibly placing these animals in loving permanent homes
  • Finding the perfect match for both human and animal, rather than placing animals in any homes
  • Educating people and spreading the word about the importance of pet sterilization to control overpopulation of animals
  • Educating people about responsible pet ownership, positive behavior training, good nutrition and the humane treatment of animals

We want to thank you in advance for your support and compassion for the animals. It is people like you who make up our circle of friends, helping those who cannot ask for help themselves. Without your support and compassion, our mission would not be possible.
