Animal Aid

Animal Aid is a non-profit, no-kill organization that has been in existence since 1969. Their mission is to reduce animal birth rates and animal suffering through educating the public about spaying and neutering, offering no-interest loans to community members who cannot afford urgent veterinary care, and finding permanent homes for animals in our care, including those with special needs. We house cats in our free-roam shelter and dogs in loving foster homes.
