Northwest S.P.C.A. is a nonprofit organization that is based in Oroville and has been operating since 1980. For close to four decades, the charity has been helping to promote the welfare of animals, provide an education about animal care to pet owners, and run a variety of different programs within the community. The organization provides shelter to animals in need and works toward getting them adopted by new families in suitable homes. The charity also runs investigations into animal cruelty as well as speaking at facilities such as school and community groups within the area.
Located in nearby Gridley, Sutter Buttes Canine Rescue provides a safe haven for unwanted and homeless dogs and puppies until they can be re-homed with a loving new family. During their time at the facility, dogs are neutered, spayed, vaccinated, and treated as per their requirements. This helps to increase their chances of being adopted, as they require minimal treatment from a veterinary clinic by the time they leave the rescue center to go to a new home. The rescue also provides educational resources to help the public to understand the importance of vaccinating and neutering/spaying.
Since 1911, the Butte Humane Society has been working to promote the wellbeing and save the lives of dogs, cats, and other animals in the area. The shelter runs on limited admissions due to capacity but provides care to unwanted and homeless animals until they can be fostered or adopted by a new family. The society also offers a number of different programs such as animal assisted therapy and education in relation to pet care. In addition, the society also runs spay and neuter programs to reduce over-population of homeless animals. A number of adoption and other events are held over the course of the year in order to raise money and awareness.
