Current and Ongoing Events
Here at Rational Animal we are always coming up with exciting events that engage the public and raise awareness about at-risk animals. Please join us!
Grand Opening - Shelter Renovation Project, Grass Valley, CA
Please join us in April 2022 for the grand opening of the new catio, a safe, outdoor space for cats at the Grass Valley / Nevada City Animal Shelter! Congrats to our volunteers, donors and the shelter staff for joining Rational Animal in creating a new catio and a new look for the shelter. We hope it leads to many more adoptions and forever homes for our homeless cats, dogs, rabbits, reptiles and all that find themselves here. Contact Susan Brandt, 917-239-9229 for more info.

We raised funds in support of our projects to help the Grass Valley Nevada City Animal Shelter and wildlife rescue workers on the front lines of California wildfires.
