Mission Statement

The Animal Cause is a nonprofit animal services organization focused on saving shelter animals and uniting animal advocates to improve animal welfare.


We save shelter animals through sharing/networking/crossposting them across social media so more people see these animals in need. We are always recruiting virtual volunteers to help with this overwhelming volume of work.

Our Motto: "Unite all animal advocates!" Therefore we never compete but collaborate or support the efforts of other organizations.

The Animal Cause has so many programs and so much more in blue print ready for the right timing with the right resources to help educate, engage and create positive changes! Domesticated / Companion animals need all of us to come together now!"
