About Us

Our work for the animals is a work of the heart and spirit.


Animal Advocates is a nonprofit no-kill organization dedicated to helping control the overpopulation of animals through spaying and neutering; to rescue, rehabilitate and re-home those who have been abandoned, neglected or abused; and to provide proactive programs and educational outreach in our local communities.cat

The purpose of Animal Advocates is to prevent the suffering of pets and their offspring from ending up on the streets or in shelters.

Animal Advocates began in September of 1995 because of the great need our community had for low-cost spay/neuter services. Animal Advocates is dedicated to ending the pet overpopulation crisis in our communities, working in close partnership with area community animal welfare organizations and Animal Control agencies in order to help as many animals and organizations.

It takes a cooperative partnership of the entire community to solve pet overpopulation. We are very thankful throughout the year for the wonderful support and kindness we receive from the community. Preventing births through spaying and neutering is the key factor in reducing “destroying rates” in our shelters.




Our mission is to work towards a time when every companion animal is treated with compassion and humane treatment. The kind treatment of animals helps build a better world for all of us. Join us in being part of the solution to pet overpopulation.





Our programs include:


  • Spay/Neuter Assistance Program
  • Healthcare and Vaccination Assistance Program
  • Pet Help Hotline
  • Fostercare and Adoption Program
  • Feral cat trap/neuter/release Program
