Pennies for Pets: Valley Animal Center’s Largest Annual Fundraising Campaign Returns

by Alisia Sanchez

Every year, Valley Animal Center welcomes hundreds of dogs and cats into their care, all rescued from local animal control agencies or surrendered by their owners. During “kitten season,” their staff members, volunteers, and foster parents also work to save the lives of innocent kittens. With funds raised through their annual fundraising campaign, “Pennies for Pets,” the nonprofit no-kill shelter can lay the foundation for the impact it can have on the community every year.

Edwina (Animal ID: 25792) is a petite six-year-old cutie who was brought to Valley Animal Center by a local animal advocate last year in June.

Valley Animal Center: Dogs like Darius need extra love this summer!

by Nou Her

A little over a year later in 2015, Darius was adopted only to be returned not even a month later because he was too “hyper.” He was adopted again in 2016. Sadly, this would not be Darius’s furever home. He was returned in 2020 because his owners were moving into a home where no pets were allowed. He has been in our care ever since and grows older each year as he waits for his new furever home. Today, he is eight years old and will celebrate his ninth birthday this August 20.
