About Us


Welcome to Da Vinci's Dream, a nonprofit animal rescue dedicated to saving and improving the lives of cats and dogs in need. Founded with a passion for animal welfare, our mission is to rescue animals from high-risk shelters and connect them with loving forever homes. We go beyond traditional rescue efforts by sending our dedicated volunteers to shelters with high euthanasia rates, not only to rescue dogs and cats, but also to clean kennels, donate food, and build outdoor enclosures for those we are unable to take in.

At Da Vinci's Dream, we believe that every animal deserves a second chance. Our compassionate volunteers travel to shelters facing dire circumstances, where animals are at risk of euthanasia due to overcrowding or limited resources. In addition to rescuing animals, our volunteers selflessly devote their time and effort to offer compassionate care, socialization, and companionship to the animals in need. We also donate food and supplies to these shelters, recognizing the importance of meeting their basic needs.

Understanding that not every animal we encounter can be immediately placed in a loving home, we take proactive measures to improve their quality of life. Our volunteers work tirelessly to build safe and secure outdoor enclosures, giving these animals the opportunity to experience fresh air, exercise, and a sense of freedom while they wait for their forever homes. By providing this additional care, we strive to enhance the well-being and overall welfare of these animals, even if we cannot directly rescue them.

Our commitment extends beyond rescue and adoption efforts. We firmly believe in making a positive impact in the communities we serve by advocating for responsible pet ownership, promoting spaying and neutering, and raising awareness about animal welfare issues. We actively collaborate with other rescue organizations, shelters, and community partners to create a network of support and to collectively improve the lives of animals in need.

None of our work would be possible without the support and generosity of compassionate individuals like you. Your donations, volunteer efforts, and advocacy play a vital role in our ability to save lives and create a better future for animals in need. Together, we can make a difference in the lives of these deserving animals, providing them with a second chance at a loving and fulfilling life.

Join us on this incredible journey of compassion and kindness. Together, we can rescue, rehabilitate, and find loving homes for animals in need, while also making a positive impact on the communities we serve.

Da Vincis

Why "Da Vinci's Dream"?

Our name is inspired by the legendary figure Leonardo da Vinci, who was not only a renowned artist, inventor, and scientist but also an early advocate for animal rights. Leonardo da Vinci's love and compassion for animals are well-documented, and his actions exemplify the values we hold dear in our organization.

One notable story about Da Vinci's commitment to animal welfare is his habit of purchasing caged birds from marketplaces and setting them free. This act of kindness and empathy, which embodies our tagline "Set Them Free," reflects da Vinci's deep respect for the lives and well-being of all creatures, no matter how small.

We draw inspiration from Leonardo da Vinci's dedication to the welfare of animals as we carry out our mission to rescue and protect animals in need. We believe that every animal deserves love, care, and a chance at a better life. Da Vinci's Dream seeks to honor his legacy by continuing his advocacy for animals and working tirelessly to create a world where all animals are valued and protected.
