The Animal Aid shelter is currently open by-appointment only. Please CLICK HERE to schedule a time to meet the cats at our shelter (all dogs are in foster homes and require an application to schedule a meeting). Please reach out to us by phone or email if you’d like to schedule a virtual appointment or ask about possible appointment options outside of our normal operating hours.

 

All adoption visitors must be masked at all times while indoors (no face shields or neck gaiters, please), and proof of full COVID-19 vaccination will be required. We will accept your physical vaccination card or a clear, legible photo of your vaccination card. We appreciate your understanding and cooperation−thank you!

Our Programs

Learn how we assist animals at our shelter and in the community.

Rescue Program

We operate a free-roam shelter for cats and foster program for dogs and cats. We commit to the animals we rescue for life, including post-adoption support and a lifetime return policy.

Heartstrings Program

We specialize in helping animals we call Heartstrings Pets. These longer-term rescues may be senior animals, under-socialized or shy animals, or animals with medical or behavioral needs.

Animal Aid Cares Fund

The Cares Fund is a partnership with local veterinarians and trainers to assist with urgent medical or behavioral care. Since 2011, the fund has provided over $50,000 in lifesaving grants.

It takes a pack program

Formally established in 2021, this community supply sharing initiative distributes surplus animal food and supply donations to other rescues, groups, and animal guardians in need.
