About Animal Samaritans
Animal Samaritans was founded in 1978 to improve the lives of animals and people. Animal Samaritans is a nonprofit organization committed to eliminating the euthanasia of adoptable animals. Programs and services in place to save the lives of healthy and treatable animals include prevention through humane education; low cost spay and neuter; low-cost vaccinations; microchipping; shelter and care; and adoptions to lifelong homes. Animal Samaritans offers free services that enhance the bond between people and animals, such as a volunteer-based animal assisted therapy program for hospitals, health care, special needs facilities, and Juvenile Hall.
