Who We Are

Shelter Animal Resource Alliance is a non profit organization based in the Eugene/Springfield area of Oregon (in Lane County). Our mission is to rescue, assist and advocate for shelter animals. We work primarily with local animal control shelters, and we assist other shelters and rescue groups when funds permit.

  • VOLUNTEERS NEEDED! Do you enjoy thrift shops? Do you love cats? Then please consider becoming a S.A.R.A. thrift shop volunteer by donating a few hours of your time each week to help care for our kitties receive donations, display and sell donated items. Our shop kitties will make your time there fun, and you'll have the satisfaction of knowing you're helping save sweet, adoptable shelter animals! For more information, please call Melinda at 607-8892, or visit S.A.R.A.'s Website to download an application.

  • DONATIONS NEEDED! We need your donations of NEW and BETTER QUALITY USED items to sell at S.A.R.A.'s Treasures to raise money for our life-saving shelter pet adoption programs! We can use donations of clothing, jewelry, furniture, books and more. Visit S.A.R.A.'s Website for a complete list of things we need and can use. We are a registered 501c3 so we can give you a receipt for your taxes. Your generous donations are how we earn the majority of the money we need for the rescue expences of shelter cats and dogs.

  • SHOP
  • "S.A.R.A.'s Treasures Gift & Thrift Shop" (and Shelter Cat Adoption Center)is located at 871 River Road in Eugene and is open daily 10:00am to 6:00pm. The store features items donated by great people who care about animals: Furniture, books, clothing, jewelry and misc. household items - at great prices! It's also "home" to our rescued cats waiting to be adopted into good homes. Our inventory is added to daily, so shop often for the best selections and bargins!

  • Please stop by the shop to meet our wonderful kitties who are looking for their forever homes (and please bring some items to donate so we can rescue more sweet shelter animals!). Our adoption fee/donation includes spay/neuter, vaccinations, Feline Leukemia/Aids test, treatment for parasites, microchip and more. All of our kitties are indoor only and to minimize stress on them, our present policy is to find them loving homes in the Lane County, Oregon region. Our adoptions also include a life-time return policy - we never want our dear animal friends to be hungry, scared or homeless again!
