Make a Donation to a Fund

You may also make a donation to one of our three Funds:

The Animal Care Fund

Each year, more than 30,000 unwanted animals are brought to AC&C Care Centers. Through the Animal Care Fund, AC&C can raise money to support the direct care of lost, mistreated or neglected animals brought to its Care Centers. Monies raised through this fund are also used for service upgrades to keep rescued animals happy in their new surroundings and to end the euthanasia of cats and dogs available for adoption.

Monies set aside for this Fund help provide medical care that goes "above and beyond" through veterinary supplies, services, and medications provided at the shelter or at private facilities.
