We are committed to assisting and supporting families and people enduring financial hardship, in order to help keep dogs and cats with their families.

 

Animal Advocates provides many services to the community such as Spay/Neuter Funding Assistance to the public, and Healthcare Funding Assistance for vaccinations and minor health issues for dogs and cats.

Our Spay/Neuter Assistance Program reduces the number of abandoned dogs and cats in our communities and neighborhoods, and provides sterilization and prevents possible surrender into shelters or abandonment on the streets. We provide financial assistance to low-income families and individuals that are experiencing financial hardship in affording sterilization and vaccination services for their animal(s).

The Healthcare Assistance Program assists financially struggling households in treating health conditions and minor medical services for their pets, such as vaccinations, parasite control, and other health issues.

Our Pet Help Hotline telephone service assists people with many common concerns and problem related to their own pets or a stray animal. The Pet Hotline also assists the public with questions regarding lost and abandoned animals in our cities and towns.

Our Fostercare and Adoption Program for cats and dogs and homeless animals helps care for them while recovering from surgery or an illness, while waiting to find their forever homes. We are also always in need of caring individuals and families who are interested in becoming part of our team of foster families.

Animal Advocates also has a feral cat trap/neuter/return program. We provide training on managing feral cat colonies, lend out humane traps, and teach trapping techniques to assist the public with feral cats who may be living in their yards, garages, sheds, barns, businesses, or other areas close to home. We educate the public on feral cat behavior, what ear tipping is and why it is so important, handling and after surgery care, and provide tips for winterizing colonies.
