The CARE Fund

The CARE Fund was established to help animals who need us most.

The Animal Foundation’s Companion Animal Rehabilitation & Enhancement or CARE Fund was established to give grievously sick and injured animals a second chance. When you become a CAREgiver, your donation will help cover the cost of emergency procedures and specialty surgeries at outside veterinary hospitals. 

Our mission at The Animal Foundation is to save the lives of all healthy animals that come through our doors. In extreme animal abuse and neglect cases, the treatment is often expensive and requires specialized surgeries and/or rehabilitation.

Become a lifesaving CAREgiver today


Residual funds from one animal's CARE fund are used for the next emergency case that comes to The Animal Foundation. When you become a CAREgiver, you receive updates on every animal that receives care using your donation.

While it’s difficult to read about injured and abused animals, critical medical care for our animals is a large part of The Animal Foundation’s budget. As Nevada’s largest animal shelter, we see some of the worst abuse and neglect cases. We are able to save these animals because of your generous support.

We thank each and every one of you who support our shelter so that we can save animals who need extensive care in extreme circumstances.

Earl was found wandering the hot streets alone and suffering, his frail body burdened by the weight of a fractured front and back leg. Since then, his surgery, and recovery, have been a resounding success and Earl is living it up in his forever home!
Opa was found wandering the streets in the hot July sun with a broken leg at only 3 months old. Her life has been changed for the better, all thanks to YOU!
Dawson was found bleeding profusely in a Las Vegas apartment complex. An exam by our veterinarians confirmed our worst fears — Dawson’s injury is from a bullet wound. He is on the road to recovery and doing well!
