Mission Statement

Rainbow Animal Rescue is a non-profit, all volunteer organization, established to rescue and place unwanted animals in qualified, loving homes. Through education, we seek to create an animal-friendly community in the Tidewater area.

Rainbow was established in April 2005.

With support from Rainbow Animal Rescue, our foster families provide a safe, loving environment for rescues until they can find permanent homes.

Our animals are examined and vaccinated by a veterinarian and are spayed/neutered and micro chipped prior to adoption whenever possible.

Our volunteers work to find quality, loving foster homes for unwanted animals to save them from unnecessary euthanasia.






We are entirely funded by fundraising and donations (financial, food, toys, etc). Our sole source of manpower is our volunteers.
