About Us

For Our Community

Nevada County Pets In Need is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization formed in Grass Valley, California for the benefit of the animals and their families in Nevada County.

Why do we do it? Because we care for our community and their pets.

Our mission is to keep pets belonging to the unhoused, low income, military, and seniors in Nevada County fed, warm and healthy.

Nevada County Pets In Need has the goal of keeping pets healthy and in their loving homes.

Our Mission

“Keeping Pets and Families Together”


The Mission of Nevada County Pets In Need (NCPIN) is to ensure that no pet in Nevada County is deprived of food, shelter, appropriate veterinary care, spay/neuter services, stability, and the loving care of a human companion

By committing ourselves to this, we believe that we will help create a community that is more compassionate to all sentient beings, human and other animals, thus enhancing the quality of lives within it.

Our Vision

Nevada County Pets In Need (NCPIN) is guided by the following vision:

We strive to ensure that every pet in our community is in a stable living situation with a caring person who, often with our help, provides food, veterinary care, a stable home and loving companionship

Our services are provided without regard to species, breed or ownership status of the pet, or the gender, race, belief systems, or marital status of its owner.

We work with other animal welfare organizations in an environment of respect and collaboration.

We never forget that our customers are the pets.

We work to develop and maintan a stable financial base, which enables us to have qualified paid staff in key positions, and to meet our financial obligations.

We raise enough money to provide for the needs of pets in our care, and to collaborate with other local animal welfare organizations as they work to realize their missions.

We work in an environment of integrity, stability and respect for the pets, the people we work with, and the community, and we seek to be an example of these qualities.
