VHS rescues and rehabilitates companion animals, champions responsible caretaking, shares pets’ soothing affections with people in need of comfort, and supports and preserves existing pet-guardian relationships.

Hidden Gardens of the Valley

Gardening Inspiration and Support for a Good Cause
The tour provides an excellent opportunity to gain ideas and inspirations for garden designs, fountains, flower and shrub combinations, decks, patios, gazebos, outdoor kitchens and more.
