Central Valley Rescue Railroad is an all volunteer organization located near the Foothill communities of the Central San Joaquin Valley. We are a "shelter without walls"; in other words, all of our animals are housed in a network of caring foster families/homes. The dogs ( and an occasional cat) in our program are acquired through a variety of sources. We rescue from local 'kill' shleters and we accept some owner surrenders. Any animal in our program is guaranteed to be either adopted or transferred to another no-kill facility.
Adopting a friend
All dogs/cats posted are available for adoption. Adoptions require a completed application (available on our website www.cvrr.us ), an interview with an adoption counselor and sometimes a home visit is scheduled. All animals of appropriate age are spayed or neutered prior to adoption. If we are unable to do so due to age, we will require an additional (refundable) deposit and we will schedule the surgery with our vet within a reasonable time frame. Our adoption fees include age-appropriate vaccines, sterilization and micro-chipping. Many of our dogs can be seen at Petsmart in Visalia on Saturdays from 10 am to 3 pm. All dogs may be seen by appointment.
Adoption fees are:
$125 for 'blended breed' adult dogs
$150 for 'blended breed' puppies
$200 for Ritzy Rescues( purebred or designer blend adults)
$250 for Posh Puppies (purebred or designer puppies)
$50 for GrandPaws ( dogs over 5 yrs adopted by persons over 60)
