Pets Lifeline is a non-profit 501(c)3 no-kill animal shelter founded in 1984, and serves approximately 30,000 residents in the Sonoma Valley. Our mission is to protect and improve the lives of cats and dogs in Sonoma Valley through sheltering and adoption, humane education, and community programs.

Pets Lifeline is the only animal shelter in Sonoma Valley and each year we adopt out care for hundreds of cats and dogs in our community.

Population(s) Served

Pets Lifeline has a vibrant volunteer program. Volunteers of all ages are engaged as cat socializers, canine handlers, shelter assistants, community cat caregivers, docents, event helpers and administrative support.

Population(s) Served

We have a small but dedicated group of foster families who foster dogs and cats in need of special attention, and kittens. We also have a few families that provide fospice for animals at the end of their lives.

Population(s) Served

We provide a variety of services to low income residents of Sonoma Valley:
- Low cost microchip clinics
- Free spay/neuter clinics
- Tender Loving Paws which provides assistance for Seniors to provide veterinary care.
- Scholarships for our summer camps and educational programs

Kids Speak For Pets
Taught by PLL educators on all Sonoma Valley elementary school campuses, Kids Speak For Pets classes have teacher-directed lessons integrating humane education with reading and writing skills, and research projects related to specific shelter animals.

Humane Education Summer Camp
Similar to the curriculum implemented on public school campuses during the regular school year, our 12-week long summer program on our own campus – for children ages 4 to 12 years of age – addresses English Language Arts/Literacy Content Standards. It does so, however, through a variety of fun games and activities, including reading and writing lessons directly involving the shelter animals at the facility, as well as presentations and conversations with wildlife rescue experts.
