The Animal Foundation is a non-profit organization operating Nevada's largest animal shelter (Lied Animal Shelter) and animal adoption center. Founded in 1978 as a small low-cost spay and neuter clinic, The Animal Foundation quickly picked up speed and soon after opening its doors, began offering adoption services. Over the past 33 years, growth has been a constant. Today, The Animal Foundation operates and manages an 8 acre Las Vegas campus that houses a multitude of services and provides a refuge for the more than 50,000 homeless, lost, neglected, unwanted and abused animals received each and every year.
To eliminate the tragedy of pet overpopulation, The Animal Foundation believes community is essential, education is empowerment and action is everything. Our mission is to inspire and enable people to join the fight against pet overpopulation.
