The CARE Fund

The CARE Fund was established to help animals who need us most.

The Animal Foundation’s Companion Animal Rehabilitation & Enhancement or CARE Fund was established to give grievously sick and injured animals a second chance. When you become a CAREgiver, your donation will help cover the cost of emergency procedures and specialty surgeries at outside veterinary hospitals. 

Our mission at The Animal Foundation is to save the lives of all healthy animals that come through our doors. In extreme animal abuse and neglect cases, the treatment is often expensive and requires specialized surgeries and/or rehabilitation.

Become a lifesaving CAREgiver today


Residual funds from one animal's CARE fund are used for the next emergency case that comes to The Animal Foundation. When you become a CAREgiver, you receive updates on every animal that receives care using your donation.

While it’s difficult to read about injured and abused animals, critical medical care for our animals is a large part of The Animal Foundation’s budget. As Nevada’s largest animal shelter, we see some of the worst abuse and neglect cases. We are able to save these animals because of your generous support.

We thank each and every one of you who support our shelter so that we can save animals who need extensive care in extreme circumstances.

Past animals saved using the CARE Fund

Earlier this week, a litter of four sweet puppies were found abandoned inside a blue bucket on a Las Vegas sidewalk. At just four months old, they are suffering from severe mange, with bleeding skin, hair loss, and open sores.
Blanche was found on the streets of Las Vegas with a chronic injury to her paw. She needs your help.
Peggy was brought to The Animal Foundation by Animal Protection Services, her tiny body bearing the wounds of unknown trauma. One of her legs was dangling, and a large gash marred her adorable face. We can only imagine the pain and fear she must have endured while waiting for help.
Murdoch, a blind puppy, was discovered alone and injured in a park, his body bearing the weight of multiple broken bones. At just 5 months old, he needs your help to recover and lead a happy, healthy life.
