Shelters Service Area: We primarily serve the Tri-Valley area (Dublin, Pleasanton, Livermore, and surrounding towns and cities). We accept adopters from all over the San Francisco Bay Area, and slightly beyond. We generally do not do out of area adoptions, but we take each applicant on a case-by-case basis. Tri-Valley Animal Rescue (TVAR) was founded in 1992 and is a 501(c)3 non-profit organization serving the East Bay (San Francisco Bay Area). We primarily support the East County Animal Shelter (ECAS) in Dublin, CA to help owners locate their missing pets and to assist people selecting a pet to adopt. Tri-Valley Animal Rescue also places animals from ECAS and other area shelters in foster care in the homes of TVAR volunteers while trying to find them permanent homes. Although we do not have a facility of our own, we help over 1000 animals find forever homes yearly through the hard work and dedication of our volunteers.
