The smile on a once-forlorn animal's face when it's united with new owners can't be matched, as the staff of The Animal Foundation knows well. What was once a tiny spay and neuter clinic when it opened in 1978 has grown into an 8-acre campus that shelters and cares for animals without a home. After a careful vetting process, families seeking four-legged companionship can find it here, relieving Dad from his duties of crawling around the house all day. The clinic still offers low-cost spay and neutering services, as well as vaccinations to prevent rabies and other diseases. Click here to see a list of pets, updated every hour, with new dogs, cats, and critters available for adoption. Potential adopters can narrow down the search by gender, age, and size.
