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. It is an open admission shelter which means the organization will care for all animals and 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.
