Cuddle Clones Donates $500 to Help Animal Aid!
In 1969, Animal Aid officially became a non-profit organization and was incorporated in 1972. The original mission was: to provide food for wild and domestic animals; to provide funds for routine and emergency veterinarian care for hardship cases; to rehabilitate and return wildlife to its natural habitat as possible; and to promote an understanding of all animal life and humane treatment of all domestic and wild creatures.
Jack and Kathryn continued to build Animal Aid until May of 1977 when Jacked passed away just 15 days shy of his sixtieth birthday. Animal Aid is so grateful for the wonderful organization that Jack and Kathryn created and are very proud to carry on their legacy. The Animal Aid Fund for Urgent Veterinary Care was inspired by the remarkable man who gave them their start.
Today, Animal Aid's mission is:
- To prevent and reduce animal suffering by providing assistance to abused, homeless, injured and sick animals.
- To actively promote and encourage altering of all pets to reduce and prevent overpopulation.
- To find loving, dependable and nurturing forever homes for animals in our care at the shelter and in foster homes.
- To educate the public by teaching and promoting the ethic of compassion, respect for all animals, and the need to be kind and responsible stewards.
