•Who We Are

The Animal Foundation is a non-profit, 501(c)3 organization operating Nevada’s largest open-admission animal shelter (Lied Animal Shelter) and pet adoption center. Founded in 1978 as a small, low-cost spay and neuter clinic, The Animal Foundation grew quickly and, soon after opening its doors, began offering adoption services.

Over the past 35 years, growth has been a constant. Today, The Animal Foundation operates and manages an 8-acre Las Vegas campus that houses a multitude of services and provides a refuge for more than 30,000 lost, unwanted, neglected and abandoned animals every year.
