The Animal Foundation is a non-profit, 501(c)3 organization operating Nevada’s largest open-admission animal shelter (Lied Animal Shelter) and pet adoption center. Founded in 1978 as a small, low-cost spay and neuter clinic, The Animal Foundation quickly picked up speed and, soon after opening its doors, began offering adoption services.
Over the past 35 years, growth has been a constant. Today, The Animal Foundation operates and manages an 8-acre Las Vegas campus that houses a multitude of services and provides a refuge for more than 45,000 lost, unwanted, neglected and abandoned animals every year.
To eliminate the tragedy of pet overpopulation, The Animal Foundation believes community is essential, education is empowerment and action is everything. Our mission is to inspire, educate and empower people to join the fight against pet overpopulation.
