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.

  License Plates


Thanks for your interest in our animal-friendly license plate. Money raised through these plates will go directly into Animal Advocates' spay-neuter fund to help us continue our life-saving work. As you already may know, by spaying just one female cat or dog, it may be possible to spare literally thousands of unwanted kittens or puppies the misery of being homeless. There is no question: spaying and neutering is the best way to solve the pet overpopulation problem. With your help, we can help so many more animals.
