About Animal Shelter Foundation
ASF is proud to support our community’s homeless animals and to supplement the Shelter’s veterinary team by funding procedures like x-rays and specialized surgeries. The Animal Shelter Foundation also funds the heartworm treatment for shelter dogs making them more adoptable. This was a driving factor in the creation of the Animal Shelter Foundation in 2007, and it continues to save the lives of hundreds of homeless dogs and cats every year.
ASF exists, through the help of community events and donations, to make a positive difference in the lives of homeless animals.
Funding provided by the Animal Shelter Foundation is most often the only hope for a special needs homeless animal. But that’s only part of the story. We also support programs that provide foster care for hurting or hard-to-match animals, educate residents about proper pet care the importance of spaying and neutering, and encourage the humane treatment of all animals.
