Because it feels good to know that you make a difference...



Wine Country Animal Lovers is proud to be an all volunteer rescue group with no paid staff. We value the human effort it takes to make a difference in the lives of animals. Our board members and fosters come from all walks of life, bringing their unique talents to our organization. We welcome you to join our team and take part in our various rescue projects.


WCAL is a foster based rescue organization. This means that we don't have a brick and mortar facility, but instead rely on our amazing network of foster families to provide temporary homes for our animals until they are adopted. Foster families are the true heroes and without them we couldn't say 'yes' to the many animals who need our help. We provide the supplies, medical care and adoption services, you provide the love and a small space in your home.

Napa Valley Animal Rescue


WCAL is an all volunteer 501(c)3 non-profit organization with no facility to maintain. This allows us to keep our overhead costs very low. We crunched the numbers, and WCAL spends an average of $84 to help each animal in our program. Our budget stretches a long way! Your donations help cover medical costs, spay & neuter surgeries, transport, foster care, pet food and supplies. We can also use help with supplies to feed our many rescue pets!

Our donors can rest assured that their dollars will make a very real difference in the lives of local animals. Consider joining our monthly giving program, donating to our medical fund or sponsoring a WCAL animal today!
