You can make a difference for animals.



Your donation to Anderson Animal Shelter will save lives. With no government support, our organization relies on the generosity of our community to allow us to continue our life-saving programs and services.



Becoming a volunteer at the shelter is a great way to help the animals hands-on. We need volunteers to help walk dogs, clean cages, socialize animals, give baths, help with off-site events and much, much more!

Volunteers must be at least 18 years old.  



We are always in need of foster caregivers for adult cats, dogs, puppies and kittens.
