We are also strongly committed to assist the underfunded public Tehama County Animal Care Center (TCACC) in completing its mission to practice and promote responsible compassionate care of all animals housed within its facility.


Furthermore, our strong secondary objective is to improve the quality of life for all companion animals within Tehama County through education and viable solutions, with emphasis on the importance of spay/neuter for animal welfare. In order to fulfill our mission, we raise funds for medical care, transportation, adoption events, spay/neuter, education and training (for animals and the people who adopt them).
