Vegan Food Policy at the Ranch - what does that mean?

Jameson Humane is a rescue and sanctuary for all domestic animals – farmed and companion. As such, it is incongruent to our mission to rescue some animals while serving others as food. Because of this, it is Jameson's policy to only allow vegan (plant-based) food on the premises at our ranch facility. We recognize that not all of Jameson staff and volunteers follow vegan diets, but to be consistent with our mission, Jameson asks its staff, volunteers and visitors to only consume vegan food products at the ranch facility.

What does vegan mean?

Vegan – a person who seeks to exclude all forms of animal cruelty and exploitation from their lifestyle including food, clothing, entertainment and other purposes.

Vegan foods are those that contain no forms of meat, poultry, fish, shellfish, eggs, dairy products, honey or animal byproducts such as gelatin, rennet, and whey.

By law we are unable to accept stray dogs or cats; any strays found need to be taken to the Napa County Shelter so that they may be reunited with their human guardians.

Does Jameson Humane have its own veterinary hospital?

Jameson does not have it's own veterinary hospital, but we do have a grant program which can sometimes assist with veterinary visits, and spay/neuter.  If you are in need of veterinary care assistance, please email crystal@jamesonhumane.org for an application for this program.

Is the Mobile Veterinary and Disaster Response Unit open to the public?

In 2021, Jameson Humane was gifted a mobile veterinary unit by a generous donor for the purpose of serving our community as well as our sanctuary and rescue partners year-round and during wide scale disasters. 

The Jameson Humane Mobile Veterinary and Disaster Response Unit is a resource to assist the animals within our programs and our regional community. Through this unit, we provide medical care to the animals of houseless individuals and domestic violence survivors, and we provide spay and neuter services to feral cat populations that were not properly tended to during COVID19 pandemic. We partner with local animal rescue and sanctuary organizations to provide greater reach and impact to their operations. The mobile unit is not a general veterinary practice open to the public.

We offer regular vaccination and microchip clinics which are open to the public. Dates and locations can be found on our website and social media, please follow us on Instagram and Facebook

Those seeking financial assistance for veterinary care can apply for a grant thru our Community Animal Assistance Program.
