The Animal Foundation Building

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 15,500 lost, homeless, and often mistreated animals.
