We support a variety of local and nation wide programs geared towards animals! Take a look!
Farm Sanctuary was founded in 1986 to combat the abuses of factory farming and encourage a new awareness and understanding about farm animals. Today, Farm Sanctuary is the nation’s largest and most effective farm animal rescue and protection organization.
Butte Humane Society is one of the oldest non-profits in Butte County, working since 1911 to bring humanitarian care to dogs, cats and other animals. They are a Limited Admission shelter that strives to make our animals as comfortable as possible during their stay.
Founded in 1989, Animal Place is one of the oldest and largest sanctuaries for farmed animals in the country. Nestled on 600 acres in Grass Valley, CA, Animal Place provides refuge to hundreds of neglected farmed animals. We promote veganism through our publications, e-alerts, and cooking classes. Our mission is simple: to extend compassion to all life!
In early 1998, Chico Cat Coalition (or CCC for short) was formed in response to a large number of wild (feral) cats in the Bidwell Park area of Chico. Since their inception, over 925 cats have been rescued from the park thus far, and they continue to help with strays.
Everyone is aware of PETA and their efforts towards animal equality. PETA is the largest animal rights organization in the world, with more than 3 million members and supporters working through education, investigations, research, animal rescue, legislation, events, and protest campaigns.
peta2 started back in the summer of 2002, when PETA was looking to expand its animal rights family. Low and behold, peta2 was born! On the Vans Warped Tour, bands loved and nurtured peta2 like it was their very own. Now, just 10 years later, peta2 is proud to be recognized as the largest youth animal rights group in the world!
VegChico.com, or Chico Vegan, is a great place to visit if you're looking to meet up with other vegans or vegetarians in the local Chico area! The site forwards to their Meetup.com calendar where they regularly post meet up times and food and recipe swaps! Worth checking out if you're in the mood for meeting new people!
Formed in 2008, North Valley Animal Disaster Group was one of the first animal rescues of its type, specializing in rescuing animals during natural disaster situations. Recently, the organization that came from humble beginnings in the Chico area, became partnered with the International Fund for Animal Welfare!
Several years ago in the fall of 2007, C-FAR held its first meeting on the Chico campus, bringing together students who support animal welfare. Today, we are still thankful to the school that provides us with the facilities and the resources to conduct our meetings, and to the members of the past who paved the way!
