Your Donation Saves Lives!

We count on your donations to continue our life-saving work. As a non-profit organization with no paid staff members, our dedicated volunteers work tirelessly on behalf of local animals. And our efforts are paying off. Our innovative programs have been credited with reducing the number of animals who are euthanized at our local animal control facility. Our dream is that one day, no adoptable animals will be killed in area shelters. We thank you for helping us realize this dream.Visit the donation page to see where your money goes.

Medical Assistance Fund 

This Fund is to help pet parents who have an unexpected urgent pet illness that they can't afford.  If you need assistance, please contact us at 410 880 2488 #3 or info@animal-advocates.org.
