Why Rescue?


​"I think of all the animals who, through no fault of their own, lose their lives every day.

These wonderful beings end up in facilities that are understaffed, over- crowded, and don’t have the means to help every animal find a forever home. 10,000; that is, in fact the number of animals that get euthanized every day in the United States alone. That is unacceptable.

In response to this dilemma, a passionate group of animal lovers in our community have come together to form “Kate’s Rescue for Animals”, a  group dedicated to helping improve the welfare and safety of animals in our community. Named after my sweet dog Kate, her plight inspired me to find other like-minded people who also felt a need to be a part of the solution.

We commit to assisting our local shelter with saving animals. We commit to educating our community about the importance of spay and neuter for their pets. We commit to assisting families who need a helping hand from the community to keep their pets at home instead of surrendering them to the shelter. We ask you as community members and businesses to also commit to helping ensure the welfare and safety of our animals. 

Thank you all for your help and concern in this worthy venture."

​Where Are We Located?

​-Kate's Rescue for Animals is a foster based non-profit rescue. This means that we do not have a physical location for interested individuals to meet our animals. Each of our animals experience home environments. Our fosters are spread out from Los Banos, to Stockton, and many locations in between including Modesto. If you know what animal you would like to meet you only need to reach out to us. You can contact us by email, or by message on facebook. Tell us the pet you are looking at and we can help you set up a meeting with that animal, usually this cannot be done same day as we must complete part of the adoption process firstly and find time that works for the reps and fosters. This often is done whenever works for the potential family/foster/rep and can be carried out by a direct representative or by the animals foster.



Physical Events


More often than not a family either does not know what they are looking for, or cannot make up their minds on which animal they wish to meet. In cases like these we direct adopters to our events. Once a week on Saturday we hold an open adoption event in one of many locations. Times very on time of year and staff on hand. Times can be seen weekly posted on our facebook page.  We have many dogs on hand at events, adoptions on site are allowed with accepted application. Fees are due at the time of adoption. If a family alerts us and we are able we can also bring special request dogs to help the family meet all those that might catch their eye at once.
