Your support makes a difference in the lives of Las Vegas’
lost, unwanted and abandoned pets.

Your gift saves lives.


The Animal Foundation operates Nevada’s largest open-admission animal shelter and pet adoption center. Municipal contracts with local jurisdictions (City of Las Vegas, City of North Las Vegas and Clark County) provide funding for services rendered during each animal’s legal hold period (72 hours allowing owners of lost pets to claim their animal at our facility). After the legal hold period has passed, the services and programs we provide for the animals, and the community, are funded through the generosity of our residents.

Please consider making a gift today, and join us in our efforts to save all healthy and treatable animals in the Las Vegas valley.

The Animal Foundation Hero Monthly Giving Program

The Animal Foundation heroes are a group of dedicated friends who make monthly gifts that provide a consistent, reliable income stream, allowing us to focus more resources on our life-saving and life-changing programs, and less on raising necessary funds. With just $20 a month (that’s just 65 cents a day!), you can make a difference in the lives of shelter pets.

One-Time Gifts

Give a one-time gift, and help us care for the animals who have found themselves in our care through no fault of their own.
