Your Legacy Gift Helps Pets in Need

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.

AAHS is a 501(c)(3) organization and your gift to the animals is tax deductible. AAHS Tax ID Number: 58-1847318.

Legacy Gifts

Leave a legacy by helping the causes you care about the most.

Gifts by will are one of our most important sources of support. Unrestricted gifts give us the greatest flexibility to use your gift where it is most needed to save and protect thousands of homeless pets each year.
