 The Animal Sanctuary has been a No Kill Shelter for more than a half-century.  We envision a community that promotes turning compassion into action for companion animals by:  

  • Helping to keep pets in their home and out of shelters
  •  Adopting healthy pets into loving homes.
  • Promoting the human-animal bond through outreach, education and advocacy.
  • Spaying and neutering to end the suffering and overpopulation of unwanted animals.
  • The humane and compassionate treatment of all animals.

Being a rescue and a sanctuary, the Animal Care Sanctuary (ACS) provides extended care for animals that need a little more time and attention.

We are regionally based with a national reach, and are among the 12-15% of shelters in the U.S. with a dedicated vet team. Having a dedicated vet team helps us to ensure that all animals are vaccinated, spay/neutered and micro~chipped before adoption 

In terms of our community support we also offer:

  • A pre-veterinary/animal science behavior internship program with interns from across the U.S.
  • Training for community pets to become therapy animals
  • Low cost community veterinary clinics
  • Pet food pantries for those who are facing financial challenges 
  • Animal care education
  • Emergency funding for senior & special needs pets
  • Advocacy for the humane treatment of all animals
  •  We also partner with the Humane Society of the U.S. when disasters hit and offer emergency placement when needed for companion animals

In 2018 alone, we:

  • Distributed approximately 20,000 pounds of pet food through our pet food pantries
  •  Performed 4,909 spay/neuter surgeries & animal wellness visits Placed 694 animals into loving homes
  • Provided programs & services to over 25,000 cats & dogs

With your help we are hoping to raise $10,000 to help fund a program to transport, treat and return animals from rural owners and rescuers who lack access to affordable medial care for spay/neuter surgery, vaccinations and other needed medical care.

Where:

  •  $25 will fund flea & ear mite treatment for15 homeless cats
  • $50 will und pain medication for 20 rescued dogs after spay/neuter
  • $100 will fund microchips for 16 rescued animals
  • $250 will fund surgical gloves needed for 55 spay & neuters
  • $500 will fund Heartworm/Lyme tests for 30 dogs or Leukemia/FIV tests for 30 cats
  • $1,000 will help fund vaccines for 100 dogs or 200 cats upon intake to the shelter
