Who We Are
The Animal Foundation, founded in 1978, is one of the highest volume single-site animal shelters in America. Our mission is to save all healthy and treatable animals in the Las Vegas Valley. Last year we saved over 15,000 lost, homeless, and often mistreated animals.
Our 2020 Work By the Numbers
Much like a public hospital, as an open-admission shelter, The Animal Foundation takes in every animal who comes to us in need, no matter how sick or injured.
Pets returned to owners
Pets transferred to Paw Partners
Cats served through trap / neuter / release
Pets saved via KEPPT
