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 20,000 lost, homeless, and often mistreated animals.

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.

Invite a shelter pet over for the holidays! The Animal Foundation is looking for foster families who are not traveling and are willing to pick up a dog or cat now through the end of the year. Fostering an animal is an easy, short-term way to help make a difference. It simply means temporarily opening your home to pets in need and giving them love and care while they wait to be adopted.
December 1, 2023 - December 17, 2023 | 11:00 am to 7:00 pm
We're proud to partner with Bissell Pet Foundation to offer fee-waived adoptions on all cats & dogs from December 1st through December 17th!
