Anti-Cruelty Society
Open Door to Compassion The Anti-Cruelty Society has been on the forefront of animal welfare and humane education since it was founded in 1899. Its focus is to provide the following: • Compassionate care for any animal in need • An attempt to find a home for every healthy or rehabilitatable dog and cat • Intervention to prevent cruelty to animals • Community education on animal issues to inspire compassion and respect; and • Low or no cost spaying or neutering The Anti-Cruelty Society’s mission is to build a community of caring by helping pets and educating people. We are an open admission shelter which means we care for all animals and will not turn away any animal in need. There are no time limits placed on any animal in its care and the Society operates under the belief that no healthy or rehabilitatable pet should be euthanized. Based on the premise that the key to pet overpopulation is sterilization, the Society offers access to low or no cost spaying or neutering and it relies on its education programs to promote responsible pet ownership. The Anti-Cruelty Society believes that companion animals provide people with joy, offers recognized health benefits and unconditional love, and it is our goal to find a home for every companion animal in need. The Society offers a variety of programs and services to build a community of caring by helping pets and educating people including the following: Cat and dog adoptions, spay/neuter clinic, humane education, cruelty investigation and rescue, dog training classes, free behavior hotline, three rehabilitation and treatment centers, pet loss and grief group sessions, pet visitation program, active foster and volunteer programs, pet first aid and CPR classes, and other pet-related workshops. Working together with other organizations and the public raises awareness about the needs of animals and how we can work together to promote responsible pet ownership and help prevent cruelty, abuse, and neglect.
