About Our Shelter: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.
Come Meet our Pets:The Adoption Department is open daily from 11am to 7pm and is located at 655 North Mojave Road in Las Vegas.
We encourage patrons who already have a dog or puppy to bring that pet with them to our campus if they’re looking to adopt a companion dog. We offer outdoor “get-acquainted” areas to introduce the potential future siblings on neutral ground. Our trained adoption counselors are on-site to assist with the introduction.
Our Adoption Process:Looking for a puppy or a kitten? A mature dog or cat? Purebred or a one-of-a kind mixed breed? The Animal Foundation has the largest and best selection of animals in Southern Nevada. We even have birds, rabbits, guinea pigs, rats, ferrets, snakes and more!
Like many shelters across the country, we use variable adoption pricing. Some animals are considered more desirable and easier to adopt. Their higher adoption fees will leave a financial legacy for other animals needing extensive medical care or more time to find a home. All adoption fees include your new pet’s first series of vaccines, a spay or neuter operation, microchip identification (dogs, cats, rabbits), complimentary five-pound bag of Science Diet pet food, and list of participating veterinary clinics providing a complimentary wellness checkup with your receipt.
