We're busy gearing up for the Bay Area Pet Fair this weekend! Billed as Northern California's largest pet adoption and pet fun event, it brings together more than 70 California shelters and rescues into one venue. Last year nearly 1,900 cats, dogs, rabbits and other small animals found their forever homes. With free parking and admission, activities for both dogs and children, food trucks, and plenty to see and do, it's a great way to spend the weekend. Be sure to stop by our booth on Saturday to check out the three amazing Barkitecture pet houses being given away - you can also pick up a sweepstakes entry! More on that, below.
Beyond the weekend, we're excited to see what fall has in store. Lives saved so far this year = 475 and counting! Thank you so much for your part in this incredible work.

Pet Lover's Weekend
Prepare for fun at Pet Food Express' Bay Area Pet Fair, this weekend, September 14-15 at the Alameda County Fairgrounds in Pleasanton from 10 am - 5 pm. Valley Humane Society will be one of 70+ groups with adoptable animals. Enjoy vendors, activities for kids and dogs, demos, classes, guest speakers and more. As your hometown shelter, Valley Humane Society will match the fair hours at our adoption center both days. Stop by and see us in either location!
A Place for Pets
Win your pet a swank, one-of-a-kind pet house in the Barkitecture sweepstakes! Created by DAHLIN Group, a Pleasanton-based architecture and planning design firm, Barkitecture unleashes DAHLINs employee volunteer teams for positive social impact. Valley Humane Society is honored to be this year's beneficiary. Get a sweepstakes entry online or in person this Saturday at our Bay Area Pet Fair booth, where the houses will be displayed live. Sweepstakes runs until October 1; drawing takes place October 7. Enter today to win a pet house and benefit homeless pets!
Take Home the Love
Opening your home as a pet foster makes a big difference in the lives of local dogs and cats. You'll help an animal who needs extra time before seeking their own family, and enable more to be rescued. Valley Humane Society provides all medical care, food, and necessary supplies; you provide daily care and lots of love! Join us September 19 or 28 for a Foster Family Volunteer workshop and learn more about this rewarding opportunity.
