Search Lost and Found Pets
If you lose your pet, visit The Animal Foundation immediately. Lost and stray pets picked up by City of Las Vegas, City of North Las Vegas, or Clark County Animal Control are brought to The Animal Foundation’s Lied Animal Shelter.Learn More
Foster Field Trips
Foster an animal for as little as an afternoon, a weekend, or a few weeks through our Foster Field Trip Program. A mini-holiday away from the shelter allows pets to relax, de-stress and be themselves.Learn More
Who We Are
The Animal Foundation, founded in 1978, is the highest volume single-site animal shelter in America. Our mission is to save all healthy and treatable animals in the Las Vegas Valley. Last year we saved over 20,000 lost, homeless, and often mistreated animals.
