Our Shelter & Foster Program

Animal Aid operates a shelter for cats and a foster program for dogs and cats.

Our cat shelter is entirely free-roam and includes several suites for animals who have special needs, such as dietary restrictions, medical needs, or behavioral needs.

All of our dogs (and some of our cats) are in foster homes to allow them the additional space and enrichment they need to put their best paw forward in their forever home.

As a nonprofit, no-kill rescue, we seek to reduce animal suffering by providing assistance to abused, homeless, injured, and sick animals and find them loving, dependable, and nurturing forever homes. We specialize in assisting animals who may not thrive in larger shelter environments. We commit to the animals we rescue for life, including post-adoption support and a lifetime return policy.
