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.

Shipping costs can be avoided by picking up items on one of the two Auction Pick Up days.
