American Shelter Dogs: It’s What’s On the Inside

​Growing up, you may have had a dog that was just “the best.” We all have had that dog. That dog that would jump into the lake with you when you went swimming, or would fetch with a bottomless reserve of energy, or would just curl up next to you and take naps. Maybe...

What Is So Special About Food?

By Becca Morgan   Cats, like people, sometimes require a special diet. I don’t mean doing keto or going vegan but a diet to improve their quality of life. These foods are typically prescribed by a veterinarian when a cat is suffering from a food allergy,...

The Animal Care Sanctuary’s Lifesaving Mission:

Our lifesaving mission envisions a community that promotes turning compassion into action for dogs and cats by adopting healthy animals into loving homes, promoting the human-animal bond through outreach, education and advocacy, spaying and neutering to end the suffering of overpopulation and to improve public health and the humane and compassionate treatment of all animals.

WELCOME TO ANIMAL CARE SANCTUARY

Thanks to our supporters, the Animal Care Sanctuary has been rescuing animals for over 50 years. 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 team, we are able to give these animals the TIME & 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, or never known human kindness. Being a no kill shelter, allows us the time to find the perfect family for each of our animals.

We are starting a new series “Get to Know Animal Care Sanctuary.” Each week we will tell you our story from our founding roots to today, to the future we envision for ACS. In the month of February, we are focusing on our founder, Lesley Sinclair.

Lesley Sinclair wrote so elegantly about the animals in her care. Lucky was one of Lesley’s beloved pets. This is why we work so hard to build on her dream. We are building the new clinic to complete Lesley’s vision of a sanctuary that provides food, medical care and love to animals until they find their forever home.
