High Sierra Animal Rescue (HSAR) is a no-kill dog rescue located in Portola, CA. For twenty two years we have been dedicated to saving the lives of homeless dogs that can no longer be held at the county shelters. Our nonprofit organization is focused on providing health, quality of life, and emotional stability for animals in Northern California and Northern Nevada.
Our mission is to find loving, caring, “forever” homes for our dogs and you can help. Funding for the shelter’s operation and rescue expenses come from private contributions, grants, events, and memorial donations; our boarding kennels also generate operating income for our life-saving rescue.
Please consider becoming a Guardian of High Sierra Animal Rescue by setting up an automatic monthly donation. No donation is ever too small when it comes to saving lives.
All donations are tax deductible.
We are so thankful to have the support of these businesses. They are making an incredible difference for the homeless and abandoned dogs we love and cherish. Please consider them the next time you are in need of a service and let them know that you appreciate their kindness! If you would like to become a Business Guardian of HSAR, all you have to do is donate to HSAR on a monthly or quarterly basis! Read more
