Our Core Values
Jelly's Place is founded on the belief that animals deserve to be well treated and cared for.
We provide rescue, TNR (trap-neuter-release) of feral cats, veterinary care, and placement for unwanted, abandoned, neglected, hurt, and abused dogs and cats.
Jelly's Place is all volunteer-run and animals are fostered by caring volunteers in their own homes and at our shelter located in San Pablo.

We educate the public and offer guidance on care and placement as needed to help low-income pet owners take good care of their pets. We understand that many people do not have the financial means or the knowledge to properly care for their pets, but value and very much want to be good pet guardians.

Who we are
We are making improvements!
We just finished a small dog enclosure in the back of the shelter. This is where the small dogs will be in the daytime, instead of in the front area by the parking lot. We wanted to have a safer space for them away from cars and the street. We're also creating a meet & greet play space and 4 additional large dog kennels in the back area, thanks to our volunteers who donated time and money, especially one of our board members who has been working hard at putting it together. Stay tuned. It is a work in progress...
A BIG THANK YOU to all our supporters who create their own fundraisers, start birthday fundraisers, and encourage their co-workers to pitch in.
Special mention to these two boys who came in and donated their allowance that they had been saving up! Way to go, boys!
This supporter got her co-workers at Kaiser Permanente to pitch in and collected a LOT of pet food, bedding, clothes, etc. The picture shows only a tiny amount.
Another supporter collected 2 carloads full of supplies for us.
RESCUE STORIES Each week we have new rescue stories to tell.
Francis, aka #frankiethekitten, is a very cute siamese tabby mix who was brought to our doorstep one night. He was wet, cold, and limp. We thought he was dead or dying.
But we dried and warmed him, and then he reacted when given a little KMR. He was a fighter. He had a bad URI and was very congested and anemic. We started treating him and making sure he had enough fluids and food in him every few hours. In a few days he got his taste buds back, then his energy bounced back big time. Today, he is a very active, playful, and sweet kitty who is looking for trouble and keeps messing with our foster chihuahua. He'll be ready for adoption soon.
Boomer, aka Tyson, wasn't so lucky. He was a 4 month old doberman puppy who was brought to us very sick. He had gone without eating for almost 2 weeks! He was weak and emaciated, and he was being treated for Parvo even though he had tested negative twice! Immediately we could tell something in his belly felt strange, and our vet correctly diagnosed an intestinal blockage. His large intestine was growing inside his small intestine, and he needed emergency surgery. Although we tried our best, Boomer unfortunately didn't make it, and we're very sad at his passing.
Recently we learned of an abandoned doberman living on a hill near our shelter, and we started looking for him. Every day we bring him food and water, and he gets closer and closer, wags his tail, but just not close enough to let us catch him. Soon, though!
