Our Mission


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


We foster and preserve the human/animal bond by working with people who share their lives with a pet, and may need a little help in making ends meet.  We provide pet food to homeless,  disabled, fixed income seniors, and disabled Veterans. All of our work is done where the homeless and their pets “live.”  Our region is spread out, and not a “metropolis, but we have a lot of people in need of help with their pets.


Our primary focus is providing a regular source of pet food, allowing homeless and very low income individuals to use what few resources they have, to feed themselves.  In our “off-time” and when able, we provide local snake relocation services, humanely trap stray/dumped animals, and provide emergency, short term care for animals in desperate need of help.  We also address issues of cruelty and neglect. Our boundaries are: Apple Valley, Barstow, VIctorville, Hesperia, Phelan/Baldy Mesa and Lucerne Valley.

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


Mojave Desert Animal Rescue is 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 have recently revamped our pet food distribution program.  Pet food is distributed to local (human) food banks, assistance organizations, and soup kitchens, where people most in need of dog and cat food will be able to pick up prepackaged pet food, free of charge.


Distributing food in this fashion will enable us to reach even more in-need pet owners.

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.
