MISSION: POSSIBLE 2020 IS A SUCCESS!
We have reached our goal of zero euthanasia of all healthy and treatable animals who enter our care, one of the highest-volume animal shelters in the nation to do so!
Saving lives is a three-pronged effort based on lowering intakes, increasing positive outcomes, and ensuring we can properly house and care for all animals who come into our care at The Animal Foundation.
We continue to introduce new programs and grow our existing programs that effectively address these three key objectives. We provide education and resources to keep people and pets together, deliver lifesaving medical and behavioral help to ensure pets in our care are healthy and adoptable, and continue to increase our reach with Paw Partners for more placement opportunities. These programs, together with newly renovated and upgraded facilities helped us reach our goal to save all healthy and treatable animals who come into our care.
The Animal Foundation offers pets for adoption on its main, GreenGale campus in Las Vegas View adoptable animals.
Low-Cost Vet Clinic
Our Low-Cost Vet Clinic offers spay/neuter, microchipping, and vaccine services at a fraction of the cost of traditional veterinary hospitals. Learn more about our Low-Cost Vet Clinic.
ACE Program (Academy for Canine Etiquette)
Our enrichment experts have implemented a number of programs that keep pets stimulated and happy during their stay, while facilitating the chances for harder-to-adopt dogs to find a happy home. Dogs Playing for Life provides dogs with outdoor exercise and the opportunity to socialize with other canines and humans. The ACE program trains larger dogs for certification in the American Kennel Club’s Canine Good Citizenship program.
Our foster volunteer program continues to grow and expand. Our Foster Field Trip program, currently on pause due to the pandemic, is designed to get adoptable animals out of the shelter for as little as an afternoon, a weekend, or a few weeks. Getting out of the shelter allows the animals to relax, de-stress, and “be themselves” while foster caregivers provide additional information that can help the pets get adopted. Our Foster-to-Forever Homes program allows foster caregivers to become more actively involved in getter their pet(s) adopted and the adoption process itself. Learn more about fostering a pet.
KEPPT (Keeping Every Person and Pet Together)
The KEPPT program is an owner-surrender intervention program designed to help keep pets in their homes and out of the shelter by providing lifesaving resources like medical care, pet supplies, and education. Learn more about KEPPT.
The Animal Foundation has a trap-and-release program designed to save the lives of free-roaming community cats, while at the same time protecting them and reducing the overall cat population. Learn more about Community Cats.
Working Cats are not well-socialized to humans or have other issues that make them poor candidates for life as a traditional, indoor pet. The Animal Foundation’s goal is to find homes where these cats can flourish while helping to control rodent populations. Working Cats are being placed successfully in warehouses, barns, factories, and other properties suited for independent-minded cats.
To expedite adoptions, or for treatment or rehabilitation beyond our resources, The Animal Foundation has a network of over 230 local and regional transfer partners who work with us to increase positive outcomes for homeless animals. Last year over 2,300 pets were transferred into the capable hands of Paw Partners.
CARE Fund (Companion Animal Rehabilitation & Enhancement Fund)
The CARE Fund was established to give grievously sick and injured animals a second chance. This fund helps cover the cost of emergencies procedures and specialty surgeries at outside veterinary hospitals.
