About Us


Jameson Animal Rescue Ranch is a no-kill rescue and sanctuary in the Napa Valley for companion and farmed animals in need. The nonprofit provides transitional and permanent shelter, adoption and rescue services, humane education, animal advocacy, and is committed to ending animal hunger, cruelty, and overpopulation.

JARR also collaborates with and acts as a liaison for various local animal rescue groups.


JARR fosters harmony between humans, animals, and the planet to create a kinder, more compassionate world.


Founded in 2014 by David and Monica Stevens, Jameson Animal Rescue Ranch (JARR) is a 501(c)(3) registered nonprofit organization that was founded on the belief that all animals should live a life free from cruelty and suffering. Guided by our instincts, we have not followed the traditional path of “animal rescue” but instead listened to our community and responded holistically to the needs of our animals and their human guardians: our commitment is to continuously learn and adapt and not be afraid to challenge the status quo to ensure we have the greatest positive impact possible. As such, our program model includes a variety of novel solutions and approaches driven by education, prevention, and intervention. These programs include Community Assistance (pet financial assistance, pet temporary housing during times of domestic violence/retreat, vet care subsidy, behavior assistance, pet food and supplies for homeless, general community support through our in-house vet techs); Senior Citizen Pet Wellness; Disaster Preparedness & Response; Behavior Training; Spay/Neuter; Adoption Foster & Fospice; and Animal Education & Advocacy.

We will continue to be the change needed to ensure the future welfare of our animals, the planet, and the people who love them both. We are building a fully sustainable education and solutions center for animal well being that will allow us to expand our efforts in support of the healthy development and care for animals in need. Please join us in the fight to end animal suffering, foster environmental stewardship, and educate humanity on harmonizing with animals and nature.
