A healthy, happy animal starts with providing  a regular source of pet food.  An empty stomach is painful, and empty bowls are unacceptable!  We work hard to make sure animals don't go hungry.


To do great work, you need tools. While blood, sweat and tears have built empires, we are always in need of help, and of items to further our mission of helping the pets of homeless people.


Vaccination and emergency veterinary services help to keep animals most at risk-healthy. We also offer spay/neuter services to the pets of homeless owners, to help in stopping pet overpopulation..


Wild animals sometimes find themselves in the middle of areas they aren't exactly welcome.  We do what we can to educate the public, and help animals safely find their way back to the wild.

At Mojave Desert Animal Rescue, our mission is simple: "Street Love!"  

We foster and preserve the human/animal bond by working with people who are homeless-who also share their lives with a pet.  We also work with disabled, fixed income seniors, and disabled Veterans. All of our work is done "in the field" where the homeless and their pets "live."  Our region is spread out, and not a "metropolis, but we have a very high percentage homeless pet owners.

Our primary focus is providing a regular source of pet food, allowing homeless individuals to use what few resources they have, to feed themselves. When able, we provide pet supplies, vaccination, spay/neuter and emergency veterinary services.  In our "off-time," we also provide local snake relocation services for local residents, humanely trap stray/dumped animals, and provide emergency, short term care for animals in desperate need of help.  Our boundaries are: Apple Valley, VIctorville, Hesperia, and Lucerne Valley.

Mojave Desert Animal Rescue Inc. is a 501(c)(3) Charitable Organization.  Donations are tax-deductible.

Mojave Desert Animal Rescue not a traditional "animal shelter," and we do not provide animal sheltering services, or shelter "pull" services.  Please contact your local humane society or animal shelter if you need assistance with a stray pet.

We do not normally "recoup" costs via pet adoptions like many other organizations. We are always in need of people to sponsor a pet food distribution.  Insurance and fuel costs are expensive, and without your support, we are unable to fulfill our mission.  Please visit THIS LINK to sponsor a bi-monthly pet food distribution.
