Thanks to our supporters, the Animal Care Sanctuary (ACS) has been rescuing animals for over 50 years. We are & have always been a No-Kill shelter.
On any given day, hundreds of dogs and cats are in residence. They come from closing or overrun shelters, areas hit by disaster, owner surrenders, or are abandoned, mistreated or have special needs.
Since we have our own veterinary and behavioral staff, we are able to give these animals theTIME & CARE they need. Some of the animals we take in would not have a chance in most shelters. Some may have been badly mistreated, never received veterinary care, never known human kindness, are feral, fear strangers, and/or have resource guard issues.
At least 90% of these animals have been adopted out to just the right home that fits their needs. As part of our community engagement, our programs offer pet food pantries to help financially challenged pet owners keep their pets at home. Our clinics offer thousands of affordable spay/neuter surgeries every year.
Our Love on A Leash, therapy dog classes offer the opportunity for our adopters and community members’ pets to become therapy animals. These pets could then visit schools, assisted living, hospitals, and skilled nursing centers to bring joy and reduce stress for those they meet.
Our animals, donors, volunteers and staff are extremely proud of the national recognition earned for our innovative programs, lifesaving mission to rescue, rehabilitate and adopt homeless animals and advocate for the well-being of all animals.
Please consider becoming one of our Ambassadors of Hope, and together, we can save & enrich more lives.
