Mission

AVDAF works to lessen animal suffering during natural disasters and other crisis situations. This is accomplished through partnerships with trustworthy, sustainable local animal organizations or individuals. These associates are responsible for the immediate rescue and care of animals in crises, disasters, or situations of abuse within their communities. AVDAF bolsters these efforts by supplying the necessary funds or resources. Assistance is also provided to its affiliate Animal Victory to write petitions to fight for the maximum punishment for convicted animal abusers or investigations for alleged animal abuse cases.

Home Street Home-Dogs and Cats of the homeless

Home Street Home serves dogs and cats belonging to individuals experiencing homelessness. This program is an organized annual effort, particularly active during the November and December holidays, aimed at providing food, supplies, and veterinary care for these pets. Provided there are sufficient funds, we work on this program year-round with plans to expand to more locations.

Population(s) Served

Begging for Help is a distinctive funding initiative that provides vital financial assistance for low-cost spay and neuter services. These services are primarily aimed at smaller groups and individuals within the United States. These dedicated individuals and organizations often tap into their personal resources to control the population of cats and dogs in their local communities through spaying or neutering. The ultimate objective is to maintain a balanced population of these animals. This initiative contributes to the health and safety of communities, and reduces animal cruelty by decreasing the number of stray animals on the streets.

Population(s) Served

The Petition Publishing Program is a for-profit organization dedicated to serving animals who have been abused. This small advocacy group publishes petitions aimed at gathering public signatures. These signatures are then used in court to advocate for maximum punishment for convicted animal abusers or to push for investigations of alleged animal abusers. The operating costs for the petition program are used to assist Animal Victory Disaster And Abuse Fund
