El Cajon community leaders and volunteers have joined together to form the El Cajon Animal Center for Education and Services (ACES) Foundation, a non-profit organization dedicated to helping East County animals. The mission of the grassroots community organization is to support the El Cajon Animal Shelter
by raising money to enhance medical care, encourage animal adoptions, and promote public education about the proper care of animals. The El Cajon ACES Foundation is about people helping animals. It was established to provide financial assistance to the El Cajon Animal Shelter to pay for critical needs not funded through the City of El Cajon and unavailable to the Animal Shelter without direct community support.
ACES Formed the Chloe Fund Medical Emergency Fund, a special fund to help the El Cajon Animal Shelter pay for surgery and care of severely injured animals who might otherwise be adoptable
