Animal Aid’s handmade holiday market is going virtual again this year with a 24-hour online sale on Saturday, November 13! Vendors will be donating 25% of their proceeds for the day.
Find your center (and maybe a little cat hair?) by joining us for a virtual yoga class. This time, we’re asking YOU to supply the cats…or any other animal companions! This online, Zoom-based class is hosted by Portland yoga instructor Bonny Chipman.
Learn how we assist animals at our shelter and in the community.
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.
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.
