Our Programs

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

Our Shelter & Foster 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.

Animal Aid Cares Fund

The Cares Fund is a partnership with local veterinary clinics to assist with financial aid for urgent medical or behavioral care. Since 2011, we have provided more than $50,000 in lifesaving grants.

Our Heartstrings Program

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