Mission Statement

Mission: Animal Help Now creates apps that help animals. Animal Help Now is a volunteer-driven organization. AHNow gives first priority to its volunteers when hiring paid positions. AHNow offers equal opportunities and embraces diversity by characteristics including race/ethnicity, age, gender identity, sexual orientation and ability.


Animal Help Now (AHNow) creates apps that help animals. The org’s eponymous app provides a 911-type service for wildlife emergencies & conflicts. Each year in the U.S. billions of birds and other wild animals are killed or injured by cats & dogs, window strikes, etc. and hundreds of millions of animals are injured or killed by motor vehicles. This free app directs people who have encountered injured or distressed wildlife or are dealing with "nuisance" wildlife to the nearest, most appropriate help, 24/7. The first nationwide response system for wildlife emergencies, it provides instant access to more than 3700 wildlife helpers across the United States, including rehabilitators, rescues & hotlines, veterinarians who treat wildlife & others. AHNow provides expert guidance on how to handle domestic animal issues (lost, found, abuse, etc.).

In 2022, in the aftermath of the Marshall Fire (12/30/2021), which claimed an estimated 1,000 companion animal lives and destroyed Animal Help Now’s headquarters, the organization began development of a new app that people can use to quickly and effectively communicate with their neighbors when disasters threaten and strike. The app provides a dedicated communications channel specifically for pet rescue so people who are not home or who otherwise need help evacuating animals can quickly and easily request such help. PHaR gives pets and other dependent animals their best chance ever of surviving when disasters strike.
