Umbrella of Hope Rescue is a 501(c)3 non-profit organization in East Contra Costa County, California, which is funded, in large part, by a generous grant from Maddie's Fund. Our main focus is on the rescue, rehabilitation, and placement, in forever homes, of animals from shelter situations, and our feral-fix and community-assist programs.
Ever see an umbrella tattoo on the tummy of one of our dogs, and wondered what it's all about? Well, we use these as special identifiers, so that if one of our dogs is picked up, or surrendered to a shelter, the staff knows to call us first. Click here to see a couple of examples of the umbrella tattoo.
