Mission: To reduce animal birth rates and animal suffering through educating the public about spaying and neutering and finding permanent homes for abandoned and special needs animals. We house cats in a free-roam shelter and dogs (and a few cats) in loving foster homes.
Programs: Rescuing abandoned and injured animals and providing them with shelter, food, and veterinary care while efforts are made to find permanent homes for them. Veterinary care includes assisting with spays and neuters. Provide advice to adopters and other pet owners. Provide adoption services for at least 125+ dogs and cats per year and shelter 40-50 abandoned cats and a handful of dogs at any given time. Many of the adoptable pets are rescued from shelters in which euthanasia would be their imminent fate.
offering financial assistance to community members who cannot afford emergency veterinary care for their pets. Spaying and neutering of pets is required to qualify for this service.
raising awareness regarding the need for pet rescue and adoption efforts. Outreach events, mailings, workshops, etc. Are planned and executed to fulfill this function of the organization.
Animal Aid has a great set up for the cats in their care, it is great to go to a "shelter" and see the animals roaming around getting all the love, exercise and interaction they need. I volunteered for this group for quite a while a few years ago and have been meaning to get more involved. They have gone through a few changes and gotten a new ED and are still moving forward with great results. They truly care for the animals in their care and you can tell. It is an excellent place to take your kids for a visit and will get them involved in active compassion. They also have a neat program that assists with vet care on a referral basis. Go in for a visit you will love what you see!
