2019 was a wonderful year for the Animal Care Sanctuary’s lifesaving mission which envisions a community that:

  • Promotes turning compassion into action for dogs and cats
  • Adopts out healthy animals into loving homes
  • Promotes the human-animal bond through outreach, education and advocacy
  • Spays and neuters to end the suffering of overpopulation and to improve public health
  • Promotes the humane and compassionate treatment of all animals

Here are just a few of the 2019 highlights:

Just by way of comparison; in 2017 we were able to adopt out almost 500 animals (our highest ever at that point in time), then in 2018 we adopted out almost 700 animals (another first), and in 2019 – we adopted out 980 animals! WOW!!

And thanks to our supporters, 2020 promises to be our most impactful year ever.

We are hard at work funding the build of our new Kennel and Clinic and need your support to make this a reality for 2020.

There are 3 ways you can help:

  • Donate to our Capital Campaign today. The future of ACS depends on our ability to safely house the growing number of animals that come to us for refuge, medical care and a second chance on life. Our Kennel built in 1980s needs to be rebuilt to allow continued use. The new Clinic will accommodate the medical needs of the growing numbers of animals calling ACS home even for short periods of time and will allow us to better serve the community with access to low cost spay/neuter surgeries. The new Kennel and Clinic facilities will allow us to maximize every financial gift we receive by assuring we are running an up to date cost effective operation.
  • Purchase an engraved memorial brick which will be part of a pathway to the clinic and between the cattery and kennel.

  • Become a monthly donor. Monthly donations provide a safety net to assure ACS always has the resources needed to provide for animals at a moment’s notice. Monthly donations help sustain our work and allow us to focus on what needs to be done each day.
