National Animal Shelter Week

National Animal
Shelter Week

November 5-11

We’re blown away by the kindness and generosity of people like you. National Animal Shelter Week was a huge success and it’s all thanks to animal lovers who support our work and celebrate second chances — this week and beyond.

Your support ensures AHS is able to give every animal the care and love they deserve, no matter their needs.

On behalf of all of us at AHS — especially the animals — thank you for making new beginnings possible.

Help us reach our goal of $200,000

The power of your support

Your support does some pretty incredible things. From helping animals in crisis and providing medical care, to giving shy and fearful dogs and cats time and attention to find their new homes, we can't do this work without you.

In the slideshow below are just a few of our favorite stories — stories you make possible.
