The Animal Foundation of Las Vegas

Charity of the Month: The Animal Foundation

The Animal Foundation is a non-profit organization operating Nevada’s largest animal shelter (Lied Animal Shelter) and animal adoption center. Founded in 1978 as a small low-cost spay and neuter clinic, The Animal Foundation quickly picked up speed and soon after opening its doors, began offering adoption services. Over the past 33 years, growth has been a constant. Today, The Animal Foundation operates and manages an 8 acre Las Vegas campus that houses a multitude of services and provides a refuge for the more than 50,000 homeless, lost, neglected, unwanted and abused animals received each and every year.

The Animal Foundation operates Nevada’s largest open-admission shelter – we are contractually obligated to accept every animal brought to our facility. Contracts with Clark County, City of Las Vegas, and City of North Las Vegas animal control departments provide the funding that allows us to provide care for our shelter animals for only the first 72 hours. We rely on the generous efforts of animal lovers like you to provide the continued care after that period for of all of our animals while we seek a loving home for them. There are many ways you can help. Click here to be redirected to The Animal Foundation's donation page.
