Your Donations Help Pets in Need
Donate Online Today 💸
In a perfect world, every dog and cat would have a safe and loving home and would never be euthanized due to space limitations in shelters.
Instead, AAHS relies on your donations to rescue homeless pets from euthanasia, find them forever homes, and provide low-cost spay/neuter procedures for our community to help lower the area euthanasia rate. Save a life—donate today.
