Save A Homeless Pet ...

     One Animal At A Time

As you are reading this, young, healthy animals are being euthanized simply because there are not enough homes for them all. The pet over-population crisis we are currently experiencing is a direct result of animals that have been left un-spayed and un-neutered.

Animal Aid Foundation is committed to reducing animal overpopulation. The Foundation does not have paid staff -- 100% of your donation goes directly to spay/neuter veterinary medical procedures. And we do not receive government funding. We rely on your donations to help us fund the spay/neuter programs of local animal charities.

Help us reduce the number of unwanted pets by making a donation today. Just click on the Donate Now button below to make your donation. On behalf of the animals, thank you for your support.
