Mission Statement

Animal Aids goal is to improve the lives of the domestic animals in Southwestern Michigan by promoting Spay Neuter, educating the public about responsible pet ownership, and placing homeless animals into acceptable homes.

Description

WHAT IS ANIMAL AID? About 20 years ago, a small group of dedicated volunteers got tired of hearing how "someone should do something" about injured, abused, and neglected animals in their area, so they banded together to be that "someone." Animal Aid was born. It isn't easy going out at midnight to pick up a stray dog who's been hit by a car, or trying to rescue a homeless cat with a new litter of kittens from an abandoned house, but these volunteers do it week after week, year after year. Animal Aid has no shelter, so some volunteers provide caring foster homes until adoptive families can be found. Animal Aid's entire funding comes from donations, memorials, and yearly events such as the Springtime Auction, the Mutt March in August, and the Christmas Open House/Raffle in December, but they still manage to provide medical treatment, innoculations, and spaying/neutering for all of the animals they help. Volunteers also find the time to try to educate the public on proper pet care and the importance of spaying/neutering all pets. Animal Aid volunteers have discovered that one person really can make the difference between misery and joy, death and life for an animal
