We are a 501(c)(3) California NonProfit Organization located in Santa Rosa, CA. We consist of a group of volunteers who rescue, foster, spay/neuter homeless animals and put them up for adoption to good homes. Many of our rescues come from overcrowded county shelters. Our animals have been spayed/neutered, wormed, defleaed, given their first and often 2nd set of vaccinations, and been nurtured in loving foster homes by our volunteers. Written medical history is included with the adoption.

Alison Lane, our Foster Program Manager at our Santa Rosa shelter over the past year, has been promoted to Healdsburg Center Manager. When we open our doors this Spring, Alison will be helping to guide our operation in North County, providing direction and support for our staff and volunteers. Along with her compassion for animals and easy-going nature, Alison brings a wealth of knowledge from her 15 years with the San Francisco SPCA. We're thrilled!

A. The doors are open! Our regular hours are Monday through Saturday from 9am – 5:30pm. In December 2014, the Healdsburg Animal Shelter property at 14242 Bacchus Landing was transferred to the Sonoma Humane Society. Since taking ownership of the building SHS's Board of Directors, staff and construction team have been developing a plan to bring life back into the unfinished animal shelter. Our challenge: to create a safe and healthy environment for our shelter animals, in a fiscally responsible way. Like many of our sick and injured animals, the road to rehabilitation for the Healdsburg Center will be approached with the animals' quality of life in mind. As part of the process, our team reviewed the community’s concerns regarding the original shelter design and has worked to thoughtfully address the needs and ideas that were brought to our attention. Together, we aim to create a “state-of-the-heart” animal shelter. One of the first priorities is to create separate intake and isolation areas to ensure that healthy animals remain healthy throughout their stay. Our behavior and training experts also felt a large room that was originally constructed to house dogs in traditional kennels, could better serve as a large training and group play room. Instead, Healdsburg dogs awaiting adoption will be sheltered in room-like settings similar to those in our Santa Rosa facility. Other plans include adding outdoor fencing, so dogs and cats have safe indoor/outdoor access. We look forward to engaging the community, hosting animal related events at the center.
