AAS is known for having one of the top 100 animal shelter programs within the United States - can you say pawtastic? Their special dog walking program allows their shelter dogs the proper amount of exercise and human interaction that each animal so desperately needs. This shelter also believes youth education and community education about the proper care and treatment of animals is essential to reduce homelessness in the pet population. Therefore, they host a variety of educational programs within local schools and communities to teach people these important values.
Lucky Day Animal Rescue has a similar mission and philosophy as well. They are a non-profit organization that only has foster homes for their rescued animals, which means they don't have a physical adoption center. All animals are placed in loving and healthy homes until pups and kitties find their forever homes. Lucy Day was only started in 2011, but they have already helped thousands of animals! They take community involvement and education very seriously and provide educational animal classes for children in the community and host a variety of community-based charity event for their animals throughout the year.
