There is a nonprofit organization that has been in operation for the past 42 years. It was founded in 1972 in the Rancho Santa Fe area of California by caring animal enthusiast and philanthropist and some friends, and has been serving the San Diego metropolitan area ever since. They have served over 40,000 families and pets over the years, and have a large animal hospital from which they can care for horses. It was this connection to horses and the center’s good reputation that made Mark Remley consider them as a partner for his production of Valitar.
Ever since the founder was a young girl, she lived with and near animals. Her family had a cow in the backyard of their Los Angeles home. Once she was married, the founder, her husband, and their two daughters had several dogs and made their home as dog friendly as possible. She envisioned not the creation of an animal shelter, where animals would be dropped off when no one wanted them, but instead a community center.
The high-quality animal center is a place where people and animals are brought together to help and learn from each other. The center offers educational programs, adoption programs, and a variety of other services to help the people of the community better care for the animals around them. Mark Remley recognized the good the center was doing for the San Diego area and subsequently made sure they would receive a portion of the money from every ticket sale for Valitar. Given the scope of the show, Mark Remley feels the partnership has fruitful prospects.
