This is the time set aside to accomplish mowing and trimming grass, weeding flower beds and the memorial garden, as well as doing other general clean up and repairs, both inside and out. This work is essential in ensuring a safe and attractive facility for our volunteers and visitors. Lots of "hands" in a few hours can accomplish a lot! We usually do maintenance on Thursday and Sunday from 12 noon to 4:00 p.m., weather permitting.

Mission Statement

The purpose of the Society shall be to provide to/and or for animals, other than man, shelter, medical aid, care and protection, to act as a placement agency for animals in good health, and to provide education for the humane care and treatment of animals, and to attempt to prevent cruelty to animals. We are a nonprofit organization that receives no funding from state or federal agencies. All of the funds required to maintain the shelter and care for the dogs come from donations and special fund-raising events. Donations to the shelter are tax deductible. Our dogs are not euthanized for space. This means that new dogs can only be accepted by the shelter when we have an available kennel.

Description

About Animal Aid Society

Animal Aid Society (AAS) is a non-profit, no-kill dog shelter located in Hampton, Virginia. Since its founding in 1971, AAS has helped countless stray, abandoned, and abused dogs find their happily ever after in Coastal Virginia.

Open to the public 365 days a year, AAS utilizes campus-style kennels that give each of each dog their own temperature controlled housing with access to an outdoor area 24 hours a day.

Noticing A Need

Nearly 50 years ago, Sue Henninger, an animal advocate and military wife, noticed a sad trend in her Coastal Virginia military community. When military families were given new orders and had to relocate, they often couldn’t bring their furry family members with them. The only option at the time was to surrender their pets to a kill shelter.

Sue knew she couldn’t stand idly by and watch this happen. To avoid these animals being surrendered to a kill shelter, Sue offered to take in and care for these animals until they could be rehomed with loving families. That’s when Animal Aid Society was founded.

In its nearly 50 years of operation, with the generous support of their community and the tireless efforts of volunteers, AAS has transformed from a home-based, one-woman effort to a 41 kennel facility located on 7 acres of land with over 100 volunteers.
