Who We Are

Redwood Animal Rescue (RAR)  is a California for-public-benefit nonprofit organization that provides rescue, foster, and adoption placement for homeless animals in the state of California. Our animals are rescued from animal shelters or are surrendered to us by owners who can no longer provide care. If you are looking for a companion animal,  we will work with you to find the perfect match.
History:  Redwood Animal Rescue is based in Felton, California.  Our headquarters are on an agriculturally zoned 5-acre property in Felton where we have barns and kennels for domestic animals and dogs who are being assessed.  We also have a network of foster families who provide loving home care, socialization, and basic training as appropriate for our animals until they are placed in their forever homes.

Mission:  Redwood Animal Rescue seeks to find permanent adoptive homes for dogs, cats, and domestic animals.  These animals are have been surrendered to shelters or directly to us.  We seek to reduce euthanasia of adoptable animals through the rescue and placement, to support practices that reduce births of unwanted pets, to promote positive behavioral training, and to educate the public about caring for animals in a humane way.

Sadly, without our help, the animals in our care would face almost certain euthanasia - usually within days or hours of our rescuing them.  
Many are puppies and kittens surrendered by pet owners who don't take responsibility for the litters they allow to be born, or by people who find them stray.  Many are adults whose owners abandoned or surrendered them, sometimes because changed circumstances forced hard choices, sometimes because of convenience. Some have been injured, abused, or simply neglected. Whatever the reasons for their need for help, these animals all deserve better. When they join the Redwood Animal Rescue family, we ensure that they get the care and compassion they deserve.
