Viva Rescue is an animal sanctuary located in Southern California that works to create a more compassionate world through permanent, innovative sanctuary care for animals in need while also creating sustainable solutions to animal related issues locally and ideally globally.
Viva is a grassroots, LGBTQ+ women run organization trying to change the world for animals coming from exploitative industries and systems. We believe in cultivating a world where all sentient beings, human and non-human can feel confident to be who they are in peace and freedom.
We believe in fighting for some of the most silenced voices. Through our many programs we support and protect the most vulnerable animals and provide permanent refuge.
Founders Maya and Kalli hug Ollie the sheep who they rescued from slaughter at only a few days old.
For less than the cost of your favorite cup of coffee per month you can become an animal hero!
Monthly gifts through our animal hero program helps the nonprofit stay sustainable in our efforts as we plan for future lifesaving!
Do you have a vehicle sitting around that you could consider donating? Through the CARS program we accept almost all vehicles whether they are running or not, anywhere in the US.
