Volunteers helping rescue dogs

Our mission is to help people during disasters by helping their animals.

NVADG volunteers, in partnership with emergency services, team up to evacuate, rescue and/or shelter-in-place animals at risk. Our volunteers also get out to Safety Fairs, workshops, animal events and community venues to talk to Butte County residents about how to be ready to evacuate with their animals - large and small.
