Goals & Strategy

Charting impact

Four powerful questions that require reflection about what really matters - results.

Animal Aid strives to end the stray and feral cat over-population issue and end the needless killing of healthy cats and dogs by partnering with county shelters and through education, spay/neuter and adoption programs. Animal Aid believes that every cat and dog deserves and is entitled to proper vet care and a loving safe home.

Animal Aid works toward this goal through our high volume, high quality low cost spay/neuter clinic and our wellness clinics 3 days a week. Animal Aid has homeless cats and dogs for adoption through our rescued pet recovery and adoption center in South Florida.

For the past 20+ years, Animal Aid has successfully taken in and found homes for an average of 1000 cats and dogs per year that would otherwise be put to death in county facilities. Animal Aid began a low cost spay/neuter and wellness clinic over 10 years ago providing an average of 3,000 spay neuters per year and offering affordable pet care those families in need.

Since Animal Aid began in 1998, incorporated and became a non-profit in 2001 opened our first rescue pet adoption center in 1999 and a low cost high volume spay clinic in 2006. Since our inception through December 2019 we have rescued, provided medical care and found homes for over 35,000 cats and dogs as well as spay/neutered over 18,000 feral/stray cats plus performed low cost spay and neuter to over 27,000 owned cats and dogs and provided medical care to over 10,000 pets belonging to families in need.

Our future plans are to increase the number of surgeries per year by adding an additional veterinarian and increasing our number of surgical days. We will increase our emergency medical fund (events, grants and private donors) which is used to help those pets belonging to families in financial crises.
